The Lord of Avernus is in

Posted by Linus "Tjernobylbarnet" Staaf 40 weeks, 4 days ago

Following countless rumors, the patch is finally here and it comes with the addition of a new hero. It is none other than the mighty Lord of Avernus himself - Abaddon. Other than that, the patch mostly delivers minor fixes, such as Storm Bolt AoE now working on invisible units and a destroyed range barrack resulting in Siege units getting stronger.
