    Annihilation Update - Gentle Iridium (2.12.0)

    Hello and welcome!

    Today, we are thrilled that we may announce our latest update Gentle Iridium!

    Most of these changes are based on community feedback and include some requests which have been extraordinarily popular.

    As always, we appreciate constructive, well-founded criticism (positive and negative!) once you have experienced this update in-game for some time. Nothing is ever set in stone.


    NEW - Idle Timer
    • In order to ensure as many active and thus productive teammates as possible, players who have been idle will be kicked from the game after:
      • 3 minutes in Phase 1 - 3
      • 5 minutes in Phase 4 - 5
    • If you are detected as idle, although you are not, simply move your cross hairs within the 15 second timer.
    Class Changes:

    [IMG] Assassin
    • Thanks to Establishment's thread, we decided to bring back Assassin's feature that reduces the cooldown of its Leap ability by 8 seconds upon killing an enemy.
    [IMG] Bard
    • The BuffBox of a Bard can now be right clicked by teammates to find out which effect it's giving, so that you don't play the same song twice.
    • You can now point at a BuffBox to place a block while shifting.
    [IMG] Builder
    • Delaying Blocks that have been placed by a Builder on your team can now be right clicked by teammates as well, which allows multiple Builders to plan their Delaying Block placement in a more effective way.
    [IMG] Defender
    • Defender now has a brand new second Class Item that is called Alert Item:
      • Right click it to drop it below your character on the ground.
      • Unless it's picked up or you decide to toss it somewhere else, it doesn't despawn.
      • It can only be picked up by enemies.
      • A quiet sound is played to its vicinity and small particles appear when it's picked up.
      • Enemies can bypass it by holding an item.
    [IMG] Farmer
    • The radius of Farmer's Feast ability has been increased from 10 to 13 blocks to match its counterpart, the Famine ability.
    [IMG] Healer
    • Instead of permanent Weakness, Healer now receives it temporarily upon healing:
      • 15 seconds, if you left click your Bloodbag to heal a single teammate
      • 5 seconds, if you right click your Bloodbag to heal up to 3 teammates
    [IMG] IceMan
    • IceMan's ice can now be broken, because no class should generate unbreakable blocks.
    [IMG] Lumberjack
    • Lumberjack now deals +1 HP of damage with any axe.
    • The duration of its Brute Force ability has been increased from 10 to 15 seconds.
    [IMG] Pyro
    • Pyro's Firestorm doesn't only set enemies on fire, but it now also gives nearby teammates Fire Resistance for 10 seconds and extinguishes their flames in case they are burning.
    • Vines which are created by Spider's Wall Climb ability can now be broken (see IceMan).
    • Transporter's Portal Maker now only works upon right clicking, which reduces the risk of destroying your portal accidentally.
    Other Changes:
    • Strength
      Strength has been buffed slightly:
      • Strength I = +2 HP of damage (instead of +1 HP of damage)
      • Strength II = +4 HP of damage (instead of +2 HP of damage)
      • Strength III = +6 HP of damage (instead of +3 HP of damage)
    • Weapon Shop
      Some prices have been reworked:
      • Iron Chestplate = 5 Gold (instead of 6 Gold)
      • Iron Leggings = 5 Gold (instead of 4 Gold)
      • Iron Sword = 1 Gold (instead of 4 Gold)
      • 16 Arrows = 1 Gold (instead of 5 Gold)
      • 3 Bottles O' Enchanting = 2 Gold (instead of 1 Bottle O' Enchanting for 4 Gold)
    • Bosses
      Whenever a Boss spawns a notification now appears in chat in addition to the acoustic signal.
    • Class Items
      All 39 classes now have an actual Class Item on the hotbar slot that you want your Class Item to be on by default. These 3 classes were missing:
      • Archer: Arrow Drop (instead of 16 arrows)
      • Civilian: Craft O' Matic (instead of the chest)
      • Farmer: Famine (instead of the stone hoe)
    • Chat Command
      /fingergun = (☞゚⌣゚)☞

    First of all, I'd like to say that after reading the changelog, this update looks super good! Well done.

    There is one more 'bug' I found. I'm not sure if it's intended, but when you use Scout and have any other piece of armor on than leather and drink a Speed potion or walk over a Tinkerer's Speed block, your Speed effect will be taken away immediately upon gaining it.

    Thats intended game design.
    Scout can not gain/ have any speed buffs as long you are wearing any piece of iron or diamond armor.

    I want to suggest some minor things:
    1. The defender Item should always be picked up by enemies that arent invis and have space in their inventory. Its still remains on the ground if an inivs players walks over it while holding an item. This enables teammates to go down the stars fighting and picking up the item making space for an invis player afterwards.
    2. Add the commands /!shrug and /!fingergun so you can use them in all chat It was brought to my attention that you can use /fingergun <text> enabling you to write in all chat.
    Also if your already mentioning me for one thing you can also give me the credit for all the other bugs i rported :stuck_out_tongue: like the bardshiftclicking
