v1.14b(10.8.2009)
Fixing the mess from v1.14...

BUGFIXES:
-Tech mode should work like intended now and should not be on by default
-Assassins are no longer controllable. This was a bug related to the new native functions blizzard included into the patch...
-Specials should work properly again
-The game shouldn't lag that fast anymore. This lag was caused by the bugs mentioned before
-Druid uses its skill properly
-Energy tower should use chainlightning again
-Dragon Hawks uses their ability again
-Chilling Mushroom damage increased by 100. The damage was calculated wrong before
-Corrupted Ancient of Battle is now Tech Level 0

BALANCE:
-Repriced tech levels (cheaper now)


v1.14(9.8.2009)
This patch fixes the map for v1.24 and introduces a new intersting game mode "Tech Mode" where you have to tech before you can buy higher tier buildings. This could get an often played gamemode, it is kind of interesting. However, note that AI fails in this gamemode since it doesn't tech.


NEW FEATURES:
-The game now works with v1.24
-Balance is now enabled by default
-New gamemode: Income Timer (-itXXX): You can set the income timer to an amount between 2 and 120 seconds (standard is 10). Note that altering the income timer will seriously shift the balance between unit bounty and income.
-Reworked chilling mushroom. It is now a direct damage + stun spell against air only. It's more expensive now, but should be a good option for northern spending its wood
-The map now uses one hashing spell handler instead of one for each spell type. This should speed up the map in lategame.
-New gamemode: Tech Mode (-te): Buildings are divided into tier0,1,2,3. You need to buy a tech in your worker build buildings of higher techs.
-The ugly forest in the middle was replaced by a more beautiful one.
-Map uses a more sophisticated protection now. Will avoid some fakes hopefully

BUGFIXES:
-Fill will now fill only 5 players instead of six
-mp mode is no longer able to give 6 players which leaded to bugs
-Hydra is immune and has spell reduction like other legendaries now
-Silver Glade should no longer target buildings hit by a frost launcher
-Fixed the "Not enough food" message
-Infernal's immolation is now able to now hit mechanical units
-Corrupted builder now has the same sight range like all other builders
-Starfall will now make the area visible in FoW making it do damage to enemies
-Lightning orb is no longer undroppable when in cooldown
-Incubus should no longer be able to overtake legendary units
-Observers should no longer give gold to other players when leaving the game
-Fixed that not every unit was trained with hotkey 'Q' leading to some collisions with building upgrades
-Legendary buildings have the legend text now displayed in their tooltip again
-Rewrote the unit storage and random picking system which should fix some errors like erasor not erasing all enemies

BALANCE:
-Increased splashdamage and range on ancient hydra and its splash now also targets air units
-Anti Air tower's air attack was buffed
-Human tower buffed
-Red Dragon's splash damage was reduced from 66%,33% to 50%, 25%
-Reduced starting mana of nether and shadow drake by 25
-Increased range of Marksman and made it a bit slower, increased damage against air

-Reduced Banshee's hitpoints by 10
-Domination income gain was reduced to 15%. Maybe it is playable now. There could be better fixes, but I didn't have time to think of something better.
-Reduced legendary spell reduction by 5%
-Trippled the lifetime of repair goblins
-Legendary unit buildings now need (accumulated price / 2) lumber
-Fixed the button positions of some buildings
-Increased Blast Staff's lumbercost by 100 to make it compareable to towers


v1.13b(24.03.2009)
A quick fixing patch for the bugs in v1.13

BUGFIXES:
-Dragonhawk's Solar Attack is working again
-Energy Tower's chain lightning is working again
-The anticaging is archieved by walking through the buildings, because exploding caused many bugs
-You cannot build right before the castle's front walls anymore to prevent some abuses in single lane mode
-Heavy Gunner no longer hits friendly units with its splash damage
-The AI will prefer the Main Castle over normal buildings when checking for repair targets
-The unit will strike a building even if it is not repaired inbetween if an amount of time expired since
the first strike. (This amount is lower for the Main Castle, such that the Castle will receive a strike more
often to prevent game losses without all strikes beeing used)
-AI build regions were slightly changed, that the AI builds closer to the Main Castle in the beginning
-Gjallarhorn buffed only one unit at once, this is fixed

BALANCE:
-Reduced Heavy Gunner's armor and hitpoints slightly

TYPOS:
-The high taxes modification message still said 15 income instead of 12.5

v1.12(21.11.2008)
This is a very big patch containing many new things and some design changes. At first, there is a new race and some new units for other races.
The gamemodes Individual Races and No Coins are now on by default, because the vast majority agreed on them. However, you can still turn them off with new commands.
The foodsystem was replaced by a more accurate wood system, this makes special building balancing easier and more fair.
You are no longer able to cage units inbetween buildings, so farming ain't possible anymore (unless you play -ca).
I rewrote the AI making it more potent, easier to enhance and making it use less CPU time.
Last but not least, there are many new gamemodes other small changes and bugfixes. Check the full feature list!

NEW FEATURES:
-New Race: Mechanical
-Individual Race is now always on. You can turn it off by using -dr (dual race)
-No Coins is now always on. You can turn on coins again by using -co (coins)
-Replaced the food system with a wood system, now, creepbuildings grant wood upon construction, specials need wood to be built. Food is now the ressource for legendary buildings
-New tooltips: All tooltip are now generated procedurally by my tool GOSI which results in some changes
-Caging units is no longer possible. If they get stuck they will just walk through your buildings
-New gamemode: Caging (-ca): You are able to trap units with your buildings and build farms like in earlier versions
-You can buy items from everywhere in your castle now

-Sold Items only grant 30% of their normal price now
-In -prX you now have only 34 seconds (30 seconds of round time) to pick a race. If you don't pick one you will get a random race. A timer window displays the remaining time

->Note that some buildings had their cooldown changed by 0.5 seconds, because with mana I can't do cooldowns like 12.5 sec.
-New gamemode: Single Lane (-sl -slt -slb (random/top/bottom)): Units can only move over one lane. Also air units cant fly over the other lane.
-New gamemode: Stable Mode (-sm): You can't choose the latest race (Mechanical in this patch). This is for league matches and wars, if a new race is still imbalanced
-New gamemode: Fog of War (-fowXXX) There will be Fog of War at the beginning of each round for XXX seconds. Max is 180 seconds.
-New command: Extra Rounds Vote (-xrX): Increases the number of wins for overall victory by X. All players must agree to this change
-New gamemode: Ban Races (-banX) Before races get picked/randomed the leader of each team bans X races which cannot be picked/randomed then
-New gamemode: Race Draft (-d): This is a new major game mode like pick and random. In this mode you pick your races in a fix order (1-2-2-2-2-2-1). It can be used like the other game modes, for exampel -dr3 starts a draft each round game with 3 wins
-New gamemode: Multiple Players (-mpX): Each human player controls X players

-Added a block effect whenever an immune unit is hit by a special building

v1.09(26.07.2007)
This patch finishes the races. All races have a legendary now and use all their building slots. In addition many new modifications were implemented and Nav build a new smart AI, that makes bots more competitive. In addition AI will take control over players that are afk. All known bugs are fixed and many other small improvements were made. I also put a custom loading screen into the map. Due to good compression it increases the mapsize by only 300 kb.
Note: I had to skip v1.07 and v1.08 because there were many faked versions in BNet which would have leaded to confusion if i had also named my version v1.07. I've put a note on the loading screen adivising players to only download from this site. I hope this is sufficient enough, that i won't have to skip future versions again.

v1.05(16.03.2007)
The new patch comes with two new races and introduces the new mode input system. Read more about this system in the Gamemodes topic in the forum. Now you can give your games better names like "Castle Fight -pr2", so people know which mode you are going to play. Undead got many upgrades, because they had none yet. Finally i decided to put a custom preview screen into the map. It increases map size from 105kb to 247kb but i think that is ok, because the map is still one of the smallest maps that are hosted.
I also did many balance changes, but the new races could be still imbalanced. So please give feedback if you have complaints about something. The next patch will contain leak fixes and lategame balance (you know, these round where everybody has 300+ income and the game is decided by artillery or is never decided). I wanted to put these two things into this patch at first but then i thought i should first release the two new races, that you can help me balance 'em while i can think about leaks and lategame balance. I hope, that with the next patch i can manage that even in 4 round games people with average PCs won't lag out.

NEW FEATURES:

-Four new buildings for Undead: Skull Pile(former Hall of Necromancy), Skull Shrine, Bone Sanctuary,
Rotting Hay Cart, Tainted Farm

-new Modification: Units Only(-uo): You can only build unit producing structures (also no siege weapons).
-reworked the mode input system, player1 can now choose modes by writing a command into the chat. If he doesn't do that in the first 15 seconds he will still be able to choose the gamemode via dialogues. Note that the new modes are not available via dialogues! Visit the gamemodes topic in the forum to see how modes are entered.
-new Hostcommand(-modes): Player1(red) can type "-modes" to see how to assemble modecommands
-implemented hotkeys for buildings and upgrades
-decreased the decay time of corpses to increase performance
-repairing the Main Castle or siege engines does no longer cost anything
-new items: Rune of Repair, Drum'n'Base Baseline Generator

-switched the attack type of the Anti Air Tower to Normal
-switched the attack type of Gryphon Riders to Magic

This patch is just like a totally new game ;). It's the biggest patch i ever released and includes key
features like items, a new race, many new buildings for other races, new hostcommands and many other things.
In addition i managed to make this map even smaller than v1.03b (although the original code from v1.04 was
around 50 kb bigger than the one of v1.03b, since i included so many new things). So the map is again under
100 kb making it a superior choice for hosts with low bandwidth internet connection.

NEW FEATURES:

-Two new buildings for Naga: Naga Spring, Royal Spawning Grounds(upgrade)

balance is on. Auto team balanced can be turned off by player 1 typing "-nobalance"
-New Hostcommand(-boons/-noboons): Player 1(red) can type "-boons" to turn on the boon reminder. I.e. Players
will receive a message every minute if there are more rounds to come after the current one. This concerns many
players leaving after the first round, because they haven't noticed that there are more rounds. Player 1 can
turn the boon remainder off by writing "-noboons"
-New Hostcommand(-fill): Player 1(red) can type "-fill" to fill both teams with bots at the beginning of the next
turn. He can deactivate this again by writing "-nobalance"

BALANCE:

except towers that still grant one fourth and the Treasure Box, that grants one third, so always keep an eye
on your TBs!

v1.03 (19.01.2007)
This patch comes with a lot of new things! The new buildings should top the races off. There are no buildings anymore
that are used by two races (except for the treasure box), instead one of the races received a new building for it.
Many other new features, well read them by yourself :)

NEW FEATURES:
-New buildings (two for chaos, one for undead, one for nage). These replace the buildings
that were used by two races (Death Pit and Fountain of Wonders)
-Introduced building upgrades (the Murloc Hut and the new chaos building can be upgraded)
-some mapdesign improvements (the castles got walls for example), note that neither the
shipyard nor the marketplace on the map do anything yet
-reworked the income of buildings. Now buildings grant this income:
>>normal creep buildings: 2%
>>siege creep buildings: 1,7%
>>support buildings: 1,4%
>>buildings that can kill units/structures: 1,1%
>>towers: 0,7%
The numbers are the percentage of the building's cost that is granted per income,
for example Barracks with their 100 gold cost, grant 2 gold per income.
Note that this will be no big change since the income rates for the buildings were around
these percentages before.
-improved AI
-Insane AI now gets 33% more income
-improved trigger code (should speed up the map a bit)
-Creepbuildings now show the amount of food they produce in their tooltip
-Sorted the icons in the build menu (creep buildings at the top, sorted by price)
-introduced the "-armor" command, that shows a table which damage type is good/bad against what type of armor
-the first four players that finish a building will receive 20/15/10/5 gold
-your worker will not spawn anymore before the round begins

BUGFIXES:
-Fixed some tooltips
-The Huntress should now correctly evade, like it'S displayed
-Summoned Units like lesser Vampires and Skeletons will now be properly added to the teamspawns
-better Icon for the Murloc (had the same like the Naga Builder before)
-finally fixed the leaver trigger (an editor bug), the leaver's units should now get properly divided among
the leaver's team
-the "-income" command should now work properly for player 1 and 7

BALANCE:
-changed the spawntime of many units (expensive units spawn more often now)
-decreased the cooldown of the Volcano by 1 second
-increased the damage of Naga Guardians
-reduced the foodcost of the Volcano by 1
-reduced the cost of the Hall of Necromancy to 170, because the skeletons it raises, die fast since
they're spawned right in the enemy army most of the time
-increased the maxdamage of the Bloodthirster by 5 and its range by 20
-increased the range of the Huntress by 20
-increased the range of the Suumpmolk by 25
-reduced the cost of the Coral Statue to 250
-reduced the cost of the Oracle of Sirens and the Obelisk of Light to 260/230, because the food system
prevents players from building them at first, so the higher cost ain't necessary anymore
-reduced Huntress's Armor by 1
-decreased Chuck Norris HP by 250 and his Armor by 2
-increased the cast range of rescue strike
-decreased the cooldown of tidal guardian from 20 to 16 seconds
-increased Flesh Golem's armor by 3
-increased the Range of the Infernal's immolation
-decreased the Range of the Dragon's attack by 50
-increased the attackspeed of the Naga Guardian
-reduced the damage that small armor receives from pierce attacks from 200% to 175%
-increased the damage that small armor receives from normal attacks from 100% to 115%


v1.02 (8.1.2007)

Main concerns of this patch are the foodsystem (Creepbuildings give food others like towers need food) to
prevent massing of some buildings, the new map design and the AI (thx to Oger-Lord!). In addition i made many
balance changes mainly concidering siege weapons and some undead units.

NEW FEATURES:
-implemented the food system, to prevent Tower/TB/Shrine massing (maybe the foodamount of some buildings
will have to be changed)
-the words "each round, whole game, pick, random" will be highlighted in the game mode
message to emphasise which mode has been chosen.
-the title of the multiboard will display the gamemode now
-improved map design massively
-implemented AI (by Oger-Lord)

BUGFIXES:
-fixed some typos
-after the map has ended, all units will be removed so that
ppl won't crash if they don't end the game

BALANCE:
-increased the gold cost of the City of Decay from 540 to 750
-reduced the gold cost of Graveyard from 260 to 230
-increased the bounty you get for Mortar and Glaive Thrower
-increased the gold cost of Nightelf Siege Factory to 285 and Weapon Lab to 210
without increasing income for them, to weaken siege massing again
-increased the repairtime of all towers by 25%
-changed the armor type of Vampires from unarmored to small
-added 1 armor to lesser Vampires
-added 1 armor to each type of skeleton
-the gold coin stays 0.25 seconds longer
-reduced the average damage of the Turret of Souls by 5


v1.01 (4.1.2007)

This version introduces Undead and fixes some balance problems.
Additionally i did many other small improvements.


NEW FEATURES:

-The Message that tells the gamemodes is now in one piece, not a new message after each desicion
-New race: Undead
-Some new effects/better models/better tinting/sizing
-Added the Number of Wins to the Multiboard
-improved some game messages

BUGFIXES:
-completed many tooltips
-removed some typos
-fixed a rare bug that caused the game to run further even if one team had already won
-fixed a bug that let the multiboard disappear

BALANCE:
-weakened Gryphon Riders
-increased the cost of the Obelisk of Light and the Oracle of Sirens to 265 so it can't
be build right at the beginning
-increased the area of effect of Rescue Strike and Volcanic Eruption
-reduced the damage done by siege attacks to all armor types other than fortified by 20%
(siege weapons should be against buildings, not armies)
