Awesomenauts Patch 2.5 Beta 1 Notes

Earlier today, Ronimo Games unveiled Patch 2.5 via livestream.  

Awesomenauts Patch 2.5 Beta 1 Notes

You can take a look at the detailed Patch 2.5 beta 1 notes below:

NEW character: Skree
Skree, the powerful but superstitious techno shaman.

Saw Blade
Shoot a blade that spins in position for a limited amount of time. You can shoot it forward by pressing the skill’s button and you can place it by pressing again. Pull it back by pressing a third time. The blade deals damage shooting out and coming back, and also deals damage while spinning in place.

Totem of Power
Place a robotic wall that blocks enemy movement and attacks.

Lightning Rod
Shoot Lightning that bounces to several enemies.

Skree floats on a swirling set of blades. Hold the jump button to keep floating at the same altitude.

NEW: AI modding
The AI editor is now distributed with the game. All platforms can load modded AIs, but the AI editor itself is only available on Windows. Check this topic for a guide on how AI modding works: AI modding guide

-Turrets no longer receive damage until they hit a target
-Turrets stop taking damage if they haven’t been able to hit a target for 3s while firing
-Fixed an issue where characters that can float would sometimes not be able to jump when standing on a platform that was moving down
-Improved jumping responsiveness when already pressing jump just before actually hitting the ground
-Fixed that bullet detonation did not work anymore if you had been stunned after firing the bullet

Replays (also for previously recorded replays)
These fixes also affect replays that were recorded before this patch
-Deathmatches now lock the camera correctly between the arena bounds instead of allowing you to see the complete level
-When using a controller, mouse-overs will no longer be active
-Clicking on the minimap will now move the camera to the clicked on location
-Alt-tab will no longer pause the replay
-Upon a player disconnecting, the statistics will no longer show their data or duplicate other data
-Upon a player disconnecting, their character portrait will now disappear accordingly

Replays (newly recorded only)
These fixes only affect newly recorded replays
-The replay menu now indicates which players are bots by showing a bot icon on the character icons
-New statistics have been added: Damage done/taken, DPS and Healing done/taken
