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.

Lobby v2.0 Testing: With this patch, we will be testing & monitoring some systems that should have no impact on gameplay

Over the past few weeks, we have made a lot of progress on Lobby v2.0, which is a rewrite of the Lobby Server to run on multiple servers rather than a single server. Having multiple lobby servers means the game can handle a much higher playerbase without crashing. This will allow us to run a free-to-play weekend in the future. With v2.42, some of the systems that will be in use for Lobby v2.0 will be live so we can monitor the systems for stability before Lobby v2.0 actually goes live.

Game Fixes

Loading Screen

  • Fixed some cases where a player would be stuck while loading; now automatically reconnects if it is frozen


  • Fixed a bug where repeat offenders were being punished longer than intended
  • Leavers in a Casual game can no longer queue up for a Normal game and vice versa until their current game finishes
  • Minor other improvements & fixes


Harpy nerf
  • Acrobatics: No longer gains mana from movement after entering battle (attacking its first target)

Sky Queen nerf
  • Acrobatics: No longer gains mana from movement after entering battle (attacking its first target)

Kingpin nerf
  • Big Game Hunter: Heals 20% → 12% of target’s max health on kill

Sea Serpent buff
  • Attack speed: 0.92 → 0.95

Deathcap nerf
  • Noxious Scent: 30 + 0.50% (0.25% vs. bosses) → 30 + 0.40% (0.20% vs. bosses)

Priestess of the Abyss nerf
  • Health: 1500 → 1410


Witch nerf
  • The Froggo change makes Witch a bit weaker

Froggo buff nerf
  • Health: 300 → 250
  • No longer degenerates health

Froggos are no longer sniped by high range units like Doomsday, Zeus.


NEW! Chinese (Simplified & Traditional)

  • Legion TD 2 is now translated into simplified and traditional Chinese. The translations are still in beta, but we’re constantly improving them. If you see any mistakes, you can fix the translations at LegionTD2.com/translate, and your changes will show up in the following patch.

Custom Games

  • ”-debug” command now always enabled for the host, even if there are other players present


  • Added “-sell” debug command to force selling/recalling the selected fighter (potentially useful if you experience a bug where the sell button is missing or unclickable)


  • Loading screen rewrite: should be more stable and responsive (variety of changes to loading logic). Also displays what chunk is loading in the top left corner.
  • Hopefully fixed some rubberbanding issues (Reverted some time syncing changes from v2.40a to an older version)
  • Fixed a case where buff vfx would linger behind after a unit died (Reverted buff stacking change, which will make stacked buffs look worse, but more stable)


  • Misc fixes
