Awesomenauts Catch-All of Awesomeness! Now on Steam!

So I was playing in some PUG games yesterday and I joined a game in progress as Voltar with a Skoldir and Yuri. I enter the match at level 12 (on worm map) and the 3 of us proceed to take out the 1st top turret. After that, the Yuri on my team starts typing in all caps in "all" chat how Voltars and Yuris can't be on the same team and how I ruined the game for him by picking Voltar. He then spends the rest of the match sitting in the base typing stuff about how I ruined the match for him. I told him I've played with Yuris before as Voltar and won and he says that it's because the opposing team was terrible. We lose the match.

I press quick match and pick Lonestar, same guy ends up on my team again (as vinnie this time) and just sits in the shop. Other person on my team asks if the guy is afk and then I mention how in the last match vinnie got mad that I picked Voltar when he had Yuri. After I type that, vinnie responds that he's ruining my match like I ruined his. So then the other team wins again. First time I've encountered this kind of behavior in 50+ hours of this game.

Wow...just play with us! I've never seen that type of play before. However, 50+ of gameplay with that type of bm isn't that bad considering other MOBAs?? /shrug

On to 'better' news, Awesomenuats tweeted there will be a 4th map, they're working on a possible spectator mode, and making the game possible to run on linux.

Just played two games right now. Jumped in the middle of games basically. One win, one loss.
Don't see the team play yet, as people seem to just do whatever and move forward lol
Looking forward playing with Goodjers

More details from patch notes:

- They should be implemented earliest by tomorrow
- New Map should be in before end of week
- New skins hopefully before end of week
- no Skolldir nerf, but is closely being looked at for the next patch
- Coco, Clunk, Gnaw, Raelynn getting nerf (Coco's heavenly blaze has 50% less duration, Gnaw's weedlings more offense instead of being tanky, Raelynn will have longer cooldown on timerift)
- Lonestar missle/auto attack buff
- Increase in price of health
- Flying droids have more health on Station 404 (the area where there is only one choke at the beginning)
- Blind spots from turrets are addressed

Official Awesomenaut Updates

Thanks to BlackBeard for alerting me to this

EDIT: I now have the viral costume, if you want to kill me to get it either PM here or contact me via Steam.

Patch 1.13

New features
- Creeper Clunk skin! Obtain the unique Creeper skin by killing an enemy Clunk wearing the skin. We will be playing using the skin in the coming the days to get things started.
- Matches will now start with full teams much more often. The host of a game now waits for six players to be ready before starting the match. It waits a maximum of two minutes and then always starts. The time the host spends in the Character Select and Loadout Select menus is deducted from the waiting time, so the maximum waiting time is the same as before (the average waiting time is longer now).

But if that one wins, your hoverboard won't work on water unless you got POWAH!

Patch 1.14 is now up and running!

Patch 1.14

New features
- Seasonal Leaderboards: a new leaderboard every two months, starting today! The History screen will show your previous results in the leaderboards. Favourite class in the leaderboards is now also shown per period instead of for your entire playing history.

- Pimpy G Character Skin (for Froggy G): Them superfly leather suede jeans. That's Pimpin'! That black belt of bling. That's Pimpin'! Them "eyes on the money" glasses. That's Pimpin'! That gold 'n diamond "smack you fools" cane. That's Pimpin'! Pimpy G is pimpin' and you know it.

- Double-O Yuri Character Skin (for Yuri): Double-O-Yuri's instructions are implicit. License to kill. From elegant clubrooms to exotic islands, Double-O-Yuri carries out the Secret Simeon Service's dirty work. An action filled adventure of intrigue, treachery and romance. In the world of adventure, the highest number is Double-O-Yuri!

- In the loading screen you can now see how many other players are ready to start the match.

Major fixes
- Framerate has been improved quite a bit for less powerful videocards, especially during fierce battles.
- Fixed that sometimes a player would enter an empty match, while the others were still waiting in the loading screen for the match to fill up and start.

Minor fixes
- Super Breed 2.0 now correctly increases the size of the Bull
- Leon’s clones now have the same healthbar size as Leon himself (not the same health, of course!).
- Fixed that free Power Pills was always unlocked, even at a too low level account.
- Some improvements to the bots.


The new patch 'should' include the new character. Furthermore Skolldir is finally getting nerfed. Oily will be less effective as the movement speed will be removed. I believe Lonestar is getting a buff of some sort since he's no longer formidable in 1v1 situations.

Tournament Information:

Announcing the Next Tournament!

The Awesomenauts Pro League is proud to announce our second official tournament!

Since our first tournament, the Awesomenauts competitive scene has been rapidly growing. More and more teams are forming all the time, with players eager to prove themselves on a competitive level. With our next tournament, and all tournaments going forward, our goal is to provide a platform for those teams to really see if they have what it takes to be the best. We want to provide a solid competitive experience for our players, and a place for fans around the world to see them in action and cheer them on.

With that in mind, we have spent the time since the last tournament preparing and planning this next one, focusing on proven tournament models from competitive gaming scenes around the world. We have listened to your feedback from the first tournament, and have put together a structure we are confident will both fulfill our goals and cater to your needs as both players and fans.

Tournament Structure
The tournament and qualifiers will take place over a period of five days.

The first three days of this period will consist of a series of qualifiers. Based on seeding from the results of the first tournament, teams will be organized into groups of four. Then, during this time, each team will play every other team in their group once, for a total of three matches per team. These games will each be Best of One, and may be played at any time during the three day period that is convenient for the teams involved. They must all be finished by the end of the third day, however.

Based on the results of this qualifier period, we will then organize the official tournament bracket. The top two teams from each qualifier group will proceed into the tournament, which will begin the day after the qualifiers. Since the tournament bracket will be much smaller this time around, we will be featuring Double Elimination rules.

The first day of the official tournament will consist of all games in the bracket leading up to, but not including, the Main and Elimination bracket finals. These games will all be Best of One.

The second day of the official tournament will consist of only the Main and Elimination bracket finals. Each of these finals will be a Best of Three.

All rounds excluding the finals will be Best of One.
Main and Elimination bracket finals will be Best of Three.
Games held during the qualifier period may be played at any time.
Games held during the two tournament days will follow a specific schedule. Teams who do not show up for their game will be eliminated, with absolutely no exceptions.
Teams may consist of three main members and one substitute. If your team consists of more than four members, make sure to only sign up the members who will be available to participate in the tournament.

Dates & Prizes
We are very pleased to announce that we will also be awarding prizes to the top teams of the tournament! These prizes are all kindly donated by Ronimo Games, but in order to find out what they are, you'll have to wait!
In the next couple of days, we will be releasing another announcement with the following:
Tournament Sign-up Dates
Tournament & Qualifier Dates
Prize List
As well as a special announcement we are very excited about... Stay tuned!

NOTE: Please direct any questions regarding the tournament to either TmT, Evansevern, or Naaza, but be aware that tournament structure and rules are not up for debate.

We do have a team? I didn't see you post anything previously.

Looks like Genji is going to be a good teammate.

Yeah there is a GWJ (Team 1) consisting of me, kyo, han, and some guy named Andy who we met at a PUG. Honorable mention is gdawg who was our flex, but since the APL changed the rules only allowing four people instead of unlimited.... /sad face

I haven't seen Andy online for almost a week so if the APL starts without hearing a peep from him I'll let you guys know.

Watching sam's stream now. Genji can do heals AND damage reduction on both nauts and droids. I'd be interested in seeing an all support team consisting of Yuri, Genji, and Voltar. What's even scary is that this makes Derpl possibly viable in competitive play, but we'll see when they start testing Genji out. That cocoon ability looks so annoying.

APL Tournament #2

Sign ups end March 5th

Qualifying matches start March 6-8
Tournament start March 9-10

If you see my previous post you'll see more details/wall of text on what the tourney will consist of. Honestly, I laugh at the cash prize (imo the devs don't need to do that to entice me to play this great game) however I do want that vinyl.

Again, don't get intimidated. I've played against players who participated in the tournament and their skill levels are on both ends of the spectrum. If you need a practice buddy friend me up!

As for our own GWJ Tournament....geez...I have been putting that off have I?

Hey GoodjerNauts.

I was just informed sign ups for new teams just ended.

Why does that make you sad? Didn't you already sign up?

cyrax wrote:

I think there was a mix up in communication. I signed up for the ladder, but there was a thread on the tournament forums which I didn't respond

I'm also sad/surprised because of how quickly they closed the sign ups. I was hoping other members would like to sign up since they restricted the size to 4 people per team.

Weird, as the name was of the Goodjer team was announced to participate. You would think they double check.

So update. We are NOT in the tournament. We're in queue hoping someone in the tournament as well as 4 others before us drop out.

Nice post on optimizing Awesomenauts.

Three things:

Redditnauts tournament/marathon - A friendly game to play with the 2000 player base Reddit community. Details

(Is there any interest to particpate?)

Big Money Prize Tournament - Details

(I don't think this this is legit, never heard of the OP, that's a crazy amount of cash to offer, is a pay-to-win tourney, etc.)

Finally, the new stealth map, Aiguillon!
