NEW! Public Test Realm


We now have a way for players to test patches before they are officially released. Patches will be released to the Public Test Realm (PTR) on the Friday before the official release on Monday. The purpose of the PTR is to test the game for bugs and imbalances and provide feedback.

To play on the PTR:
- Right-click Legion TD 2 in Steam > Properties > Betas > Set beta to public_test_realm
- Hit Play
- Start or join a custom game on the PTR
- To play again on live servers, you must set beta to NONE

Game Fixes


Major Fixes
- Gameplay: Fixed a bug where sometimes you couldn't undeploy a fighter (Reverted a network syncing change from v2.40a that was no longer needed and was causing potential issues)
- Gameplay: Fixed a bug where Froggo dying last would interfere with determining whether a lane leaked or not (this resulted in incorrect bounty calculations and incorrect catch warping)
- Matchmaking: Fixed a rare bug where a player would appear to be In Queue, but was actually silently dropped from the queue, leading to infinite queue times (Fixed thread safety for matchmaker step). This fix went live on Oct 24th.

Minor Fixes
- Loading Screen: Now a little more tolerant of slower loading players (separated failsafe timer into soft failsafe & hard failsafe)
- Collection Profile: Fixed a bug where card icons were cut off when you scrolled down (workaround by forcing trivial opacity change when using scroll wheel)
- Buff Rendering: Stacked buffs are now rendered a bit spaced out in time, which should improve overall appearance of stacked buffs
- Localization: Fixed legion spell message. Also added a few more fields, like +4 income for Mastermind.
