  • [Fixed] Tower Attack Speed Drops

    This is a really weird bug which I've been noticing in my games, and have just tested in a practice lobby.

    The base attack time for tier 1 towers is 1.0, so you should be hit by exactly 1 attack per second (assuming you aren't moving) This is true at the start of the game.

    Around the first nighttime say 6 or 7 minutes, towers lose attack speed for no apparent reason. They now attack once every 1.3 seconds.

    Tower behaviour has been changed lately. Maybe this has to do with your concern?

      i noticed this too.
      they claimed to have fixed the tower attack speed, but i'm almost certain that t3 towers didn't attack this slowly 2 months ago.

        Yes they attempted to fix tower attack speed. Are you saying towers having BAT of 1.0 for half of the game, and BAT 1.3 for the other half of the game is intentional?

        Look at the timestamps below and see what I mean.

        [08:57.35] Tower hits Anti-Mage for 30 damage (3865->3835).
        [08:58.35] Tower hits Anti-Mage for 29 damage (3866->3837).
        [08:59.35] Tower hits Anti-Mage for 30 damage (3866->3836).
        [09:00.35] Tower hits Anti-Mage for 26 damage (3865->3839).

        [09:03.35] Tower hits Anti-Mage for 25 damage (3865->3840).

            Nope, this is not intentional. The tower attack rate should be 1.0 for tier 3 no not three 1 (one) towers, and 0.95 for the rest of the towers throughout the game.
            If can be made, there has to be 0.00 to 0.25 second delay before starting their attacks before each CHAIN of attacks, each NON CONSEQUENT attacks, each FIRST attack, each NEW TARGET.

            This is the first time I am hearing that this thing happens only after some set/random time passes in a game.
            Combat log itself proves that this is the case

                        Okay then, if it was about the different models for different HP levels...
                        The first mid Dire tower is perfectly fine on all 1/3, 2/3, 3/3 HP stages. It makes 1 attack every 1.00 second, without a single flaw. Don't know about the other tier one Dire/Radiant towers

                        But the rest of the towers surely have some flaw. I have been measuring slight differences ever since the attack point change, first time I am averaging the results:

                        =0.9785 sec

                        Before the patch about the attack point, those towers were attacking with the exact 0.95 sec attack rate, without any variance. The variance was 0.01 at max, which I call "no variance at all"
                        It would be ok if they were varying around 0.95 and averaging around 0.94~0.96, but they apparently not. Not any consequent attacks even have 0.95 sec gap, so this really is an issue here

                        But if the cause of this issue was HP stages for the tier 1 towers, then they are perfectly fine now, all three of them, at least for the tier 1 Dire mid tower...

                              I'm really disappointed with some mechanics either
