*** Thread size has reached the limit-- new thread is at
http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/2211923600 ***

Hi everyone, this is Isospeedrix and I will be creating a community for Nexus Wars and handling suggestions and changelogs. Nexus Wars was created by Lilman, and was one of the most popular maps in SC2 beta. I work with Lilman personally and he has decided to minimize dealing with forums and public affairs in favor of focusing on map design. Lets hope Nexus Wars will continue to thrive in SC2 retail!

I will post all relevant changes in new versions, and update this thread constantly when a new version is out. All suggestions, bugs, balance concerns should be voiced in this thread. I will relay them directly to Lilman and we will work together on improving the map. Thanks everyone!

-Isospeedrix (Isonubdrix)

***** NEWS AND UPDATES *****
2/9/11 - Please join chat channel "Nexus Wars" for discussion and arranging games. I'll be in the channel from time to time as well.

2/7/11- Note that Nexus Wars Frenzy is a one lane version of Nexus wars where units permanently do 200% damage. This is a separate map and is not updated as frequently as the main map. However feel free to post bug reports on Frenzy as well.

1/14/11 - Update and future patch plans post on page 79.

1/1/11 - Happy New Year!

12/12/10 - Although Nexus Wars is fairly balanced right now; we're looking at changing the metagame a bit. We're going to slightly increase the offensive power of units in general, while also increasing the relative power of teched units to encourage faster tech as opposed to massing low tier units. Other units may be looked at as well. I decided that despite balance, it is always fun to change the game around to encourage different strategies at different points in time. I apologize for the lack of updates at this time as well; but rest assured, we always have nexus wars under our radar.

10/18/10 - A New version of Nexus Wars has been uploaded; however despite having done no manipulation with game variants, you cannot join the most popular game from "Join custom game" in the popularity list. This is because the recent patches changed how game variant works and the previous Nexus Wars game variant is no longer playable. THE NEW, PLAYABLE VERSION of Nexus Wars will be near the bottom of the list (may need to scroll a few pages), so please join that one. Thank you!

9/23/10 - Hi everyone, at this point we feel that Nexus Wars is fairly balanced; there are no particular units that are glaringly over or underpowered. However, we will continue monitoring the status of the game as well as read all the forum posts for bugs and balance concerns. In the meantime, we are working on new features revolving around skillsets of Isonubdrix when he levels up. The design space for this is very vast, so implementation may take awhile. Thanks!

7/10/10 - I have received requests/complaints that Nexus Wars cannot be ported onto EU/SEA servers. Because the way battle.net is set up, each game is locked to its own region. Unfortunately we have no solution to this yet, so for now Nexus Wars can only be played on US servers. Please let me know here if you have a solution to this.

*****CHANGELOG v 1.53***** 2/6/11
Bug Fixes/Features:
-Voting has now been removed to reduce the amount of desync and drop occurrences. Default modes are now: Fog of war = on, Income = 15 sec, Supply = 90.

*****CHANGELOG v 1.52***** 2/5/11
Bug Fixes:
-Fixed leaver SCVs able to cross the barrier

*****CHANGELOG v 1.51***** 2/4/11
Bug Fixes/Features:
-The long awaited 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, modes has arrived! The creator can now pick 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4 mode from the game lobby.

-HOW TO GET A DIFFERENT MODE OF NEXUS WARS:
1) By creating a game:
--Click "Create game"
--At the game lobby, there is a dropdown menu called "Mode", choose your desired mode (1v1 2v2 or 3v3)
--Click "Open to Public" if you want a public game
2) By joining:
--Click "Join game"
--Search the list for Nexus Wars with the mode you desire (1v1 2v2 or 3v3)
--Note that 4v4/Tug-Of-War catagory will be the most popular and other modes will be far down the popularity list.
**Due to the popularity system, other modes will not be as popular, but they exist for those who want to have an inhouse game with friends since it was a frequent request on the forums. Enjoy!

-Siege tank failing to sync fixed

Balance:
-Ultralisk
--Rebalanced HP to 1000, and damage to 10 (+0 to armored)
--Collision removed
-Archon - Collision removed
-Heroes' health and mana regen approximately doubled
-Upgrade margin costs increased from 50 to 75
-Pylon cost decreased from 200 to 175


*****CHANGELOG v 1.49 ***** 1/16/11
Bug Fixes/Features:
-For each player that leaves during countdown in lobby, 1 SCV and 1 Vespene gas will be given to first player of whichever team the leaver is on.
-Frenzy now activates at 35 minutes down from 40.
-Medivac heal fixed
-Odin nuke failing to activate fixed
-Some building missing buttons were fixed

Balance:
-Kerrigan
--HP Regen increased to 3
--Mana regen increased 1.5
-Odin
--HP Regen increased to 1.5
--Mana regen increased to 1.5
Zeratul
--Shield Regen increased to 5
--HP Regen increased to 2
-Attack upgrades are now infinite
-Armor upgrades max out at 9
--Each upgrade after level 3 costs 50 minerals more than the previous

Note: Please post any balance changes due to the upgrade change. In theory, infinite upgrades will not have any incredibly drastic impact; the cost of upgrade goes up and the % increase in damage goes down. (For example, zealot damage going from level 0 to 1 increases from 8-10, a 25% increase for only 100 minerals, while damage going from 100 to 102 is only a 2% increase while costing thousands of minerals.)

*****CHANGELOG v 1.47 ***** 1/13/11
Bug Fixes/Features:
-Fixed lack of salvage option for Marauder, Medivac, Ghost buildings
-Fixed hydralisk range upgrade
-Fixed unable to cancel banshee's with ESC
-Reverted terrain back to normal

Balance:
-Pylon: Cost decreased to 175

Note: Due to the overall damage buff, cannons became relatively weaker so we felt that reducing pylon cost can encourage more economic play without degenerating into cannon turtle play.

*****CHANGELOG v 1.46 ***** 12/12/10
Balance:
-All units' attack damage increased by 15%
-Heroes' hitpoints increased by 1000
-Added snow as homage to a Christmas theme

-Note: These changes are quite drastic; none of the changes however, make any particular unit imbalanced. We implemented this as an attempt to see how the players adjust their strategies with the change in attack power. We will monitor the status of balance. Please post what new strategies open up or close; and which units end up becoming stronger than before. We also suspect this may play a big role in determining the tug-of-war factor of the "deathballs" from each side. Hero hitpoints were increased because heroes that were sent out to the lane simply get crushed too fast, and its not fun losing a hero on a 10 minute cooldown.

*****CHANGELOG v 1.44***** 11/9/10
Features:
-Added "Tug of War" game variant. You should now be able to see Nexus Wars if you filter the Tug of War option.

-After 60 minutes, all units will have their attack damage modified by 300%.
** This is to prevent stalemates where both sides have achieved a critical mass of units that ends up lagging the computer to the point where it is unplayable. Increasing all attack damage may alleviate this issue so that the side with just a small advantage will gain a strong edge in offensive power, and thus, end the game. I’m thinking that 6

The problem with the high templar is that it would cast his psionic storm at the first ennemy he met, without even wondering if it will kill his own zealots.

High Temps Psi Storm do not do friendly fire damage.

I cant remember which version it was that this happened, but one game 2-3 weeks ago I played went for 180 minutes before 3 of the 4 guys from the other team left and the fourth kind of gave up. The problem with those super long games is that you end up with so much money that you can destroy your entire base and rebuild it repeatedly in order to switch builds, or simply to get back after a near loss.

The other issue I had in our marathon game we all discovered the strategy of spamming tons of new buildings in order to disrupt a major push into your base. If your base is nearly destroyed and you have more money than you know what to do with, then you can begin building tons of junk buildings in a line leading away from your base. this spreads out the enemy units and thins their forces enough to be dealt with by your reinforcements.

I have two suggestions:

1. Instead of buffing all player's damage after 60m, make some super expensive buffs that affect all of your units: Like, I pay 10k and get a 25% damage buff to all of my units, then sequentially: 25k for 50%, 50k for 75% etc. Maybe this way the players who make the most money the fastest will do enough damage to end the game.

2. Add a 2 second cooldown to creating new buildings when your current buildings are attacked.

I think there is something really wrong with the medivac's priority to be attacked. I have seen pheonix's switch off of vikings to go chase down medivacs flying through my line =/

We'll look into some of these issues.

Shared nukes don't solve the problem of two people accidentally using two nukes at the same time. Rely on good communication for that.

Fog of war is still a controversial issue and for now we will leave it as is.

Balance is always being monitored. Thanks for your feedback everyone.

5. Lower cost of Zerg units, to make it balanced with all three races. Zerg die quick but spawn quick, Terran is mid, and Protoss is spawn long but more life.


I'd like to see this as well.


Also, have you considered adding an option to merge the lanes into just one big lane? That way, one person being a "newbie" won't completely screw the other 3 players over when it's 2vs1.5 for some sides.

i like the idea of buying expensive upgrades where your units get a damage buff. i might add something like that. maybe special units that gives an aura.

some of the new campaign units look pretty cool and i might add some to the game.

i dont think shared nukes would be a good idea because 1 person could possibly abuse it and use all 4 nukes at once or something.

for zerg, i think if i were to lower the cost of the units, i'd have to nerf them a little bit as well.

Suggestion: Better and more professional loading screen. The current one drives me insane. Just me maybe? I like the "most popular" maps to be near perfect, lol.

Edit: Oh, and fog of war is a bad idea. The game would change from relying on strategy to mere luck.

We actually have an artist on our team working on it right now. He takes a long time to finish his works but I guarantee it will be epic.

Awesome! That will improve the game so much for me.

Could I suggest you limit the number of Heroes either the player or team may posses. I just went through a battle that wouldn't end despite the 300% bonus, until a few players d/c'd due to lag spikes. Even after using all the nukes, both sides just spammed kerrigan and aoe'd the opposing force. By no means game ruining, but it makes a stalemate much more difficult to end.

Don't know if this is a new development or not, but the past two games that I've played have ended in the first 30 seconds because of some sort of exploit that allows one team to teleport their builder over to the opposing team's base and one shot nuke their nexus. Could this be linked to the removal of the teleport cooldown?

It is, you can queue up blinks to get over to the other side which results in nuking the nexus and/or all of your unit production buildings

Please re-add small blink cooldown, there is a major game-ending bug.

So, i was in a game and about 7 minutes and 35 seconds in our nexus blows up and we lose. No creeps attacking or anything. I re-watched the replay 3 times and finally saw the enemy scv show up on our side and nuke our nexus. Apparently without a cooldown you can get your blinks going fast enough to seem as though you've never touched down on the map which negates the function that puts you back at your base. I tested this bug and i was able to do the same (definitely not proud of that, just had to know how it was done.) Please fix this bug ASAP. I, for one, will not be playing again until you patch.

Thanks,

Thought so. Luckily, either it isnt very well known, or people actually see the pointlessness of "winning" with a nexus nuke in the first 10 seconds.

Still, I'd rather see the timer re-added to squash this bug.
