A Taste of Things to Come
Frankfurt was an awesome event and it got us pumped to bring out a new update very soon, still this year. And we wanted to give a little taste of the things to come.
One thing in particular is quite obtuse in Dota: The whole stuff around Bounty Gold. Kill Streak is still quite easy to wrap one’s head around but the interaction with the Net Worth Advantage of a team and then how AoE Gold works… just have a look at the basic formula:
“[40 Gold icon.png + (6 × dying hero’s level) + (0.0375 × dying hero’s NW × NW factor) + (50 Gold icon.png × team NW disadvantage / 4000)] × [1.2 – 0.1 × (dying hero’s NW ranking -1)] × [NW ranking factor]”
This is with specific values for when there are 3 heroes involved… and it can have a huge impact to the worth of a kill. Definitely not something that’s easily visualized in your mind but would be super interesting to get a feel for when watching a game.
So, perfect for us to implement for DLA. So here is a mock-up of what will be included in the next update: Bounty Projections!
And when the Kill Streak is ended, we are looking to display the actual result of what was achieved:
We feel that this will definitely help in conveying the impact of a big kill. Smart Rotation will then also keep you up-to-date on the whole Net Worth swing afterwards but this does more justice to actual big events in the late game.
