Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Every player starts the game as Devourer.jpg Devourer.

The first team to reach 60 kills wins the game. If the game does not end within 20 minutes, the team with the highest amount of kills wins instead.

Modifiers[edit | edit source]

Players start the game with 50 Gold.png.

Players gain 1 Gold.png and 1.5 Experience every 1.75 seconds.

Respawn times are lowered to 3-5 seconds. Upon respawning, you are invulnerable for 2.5 seconds.

Ability[edit | edit source]

Devourer has only one ability: Chain Hook.

The Devourer launches his Hook at a target unit or location.

At default, the hook deals 235 Physical Damage, travels 1600 units at 1100 speed, and has a touch radius of 70.

For every level up, you can upgrade the hook in the following: Damage, Speed, Range, and Radius. There is no maximum level for each stat upgrade, although there is still the hero level limit of 25.

Hovering over the upgrade will display the current values.

When the hook is launched, it will travel in the direction targeted until it reaches its maximum range. The hook can bounce to walls and the center pillar, and the hook will still travels its intended maximum distance. When the hook grabs a hero, it will drag the hero back in the path it took.

When you hook a hero that is currently being pulled by another hook, it will instantly kill it if grabs an enemy (displays as "HEADSHOT" publically) or deny it if it grabs an ally.
