To be honest, I'm surprised I don't see divine shield more often because it's just an extremely strong ability. The really limiting factor is the skill slots, but when you're cheesing you really only need 3 or so abilities to be really annoying.

Perhaps giving the castle the sleep ability in itself could also help? I am not sure if they normally use it, but you could probably make it autocast onto heroes and be somewhat short ranged.

I've made the castles repairable. 300 gold/360 seconds per worker. Also normalized the repair cost/time for all of the lane buildings, so it's 100 gold/120 seconds for all of those. Regular towers are 100 gold/60 seconds.

While I'm at it, I removed the lumber costs from all of the special towers. They're significantly less expensive now.

Nothing. Steak didn't ruin that game; you guys threw it by not bothering to get sleep until it was too late to make a difference.

We didn't get sleep because it takes level 10 for the duration to match the cooldown, and the player with sleep would need to stay at the base full-time anyway. Trying to slow Steak down partially does no good when you can't repair the damn castle. It requires sleep AND silence to have any chance of preventing his escape with Blink, and that's if he doesn't blink before the Divine Shield wears off.

Did everyone on your team have Blink? I think it deserves a range nerf at this rate.

What I mean is, Steak popping Divine Shield the first time should have been your cue to start leveling Sleep right then and there. That way, by the time he decides to start hitting your castle, you would've already had level 10 Sleep, and you would've been fine. This is like waiting until somebody has level 10 Mana Shield before finally getting Feedback or Siphon Mana and then bitching that it doesn't help because it's too low level. That's not how the map works.

That said, yes, he could still force a win through attrition simply because the castle couldn't be repaired. That part is getting fixed.

That game was an hour and a half? It really didn't feel that long...
