= The War Effort =

New War Effort Trophy Avatar: Trophy Master Of Arms
- The only way to get this rare, auspicious avatar is to be ranked among The War Effort's top 100 at the end of each 28-day cycle, so keep checking that leaderboard and completing those quests! Even the staff can't get the Trophy avatars!

= Zodiac =

New Limited Edition Zodiac Kraken Avatar: Cancer
- Cancer possesses an impenetrable shell and massive, razor sharp claws, but these features merely act as protection for a tender, sensitive nature hidden beneath. She would like nothing more than to relax in her seaside retreat and tend selflessly to her beloved crablings, but the Zodiacs have been drawn into the brutal war between the Legion and Hellbourne, and Cancer's nature will not allow her to remain inactive when her fellow signs require love and support.
- This avatar was originated by community member Kevja. Kevja was one of the winners of the original Dream Avatar Contest and will be receiving a copy of the avatar as a reward for winning!

= eSports =

New Thailand eSports League Avatars
A collection of the four greatest warriors who participated in Thailand Esports League 2014. It's time to be a part of the greatest teams in Thailand!
- Chiang Mai Warden
* This representative of the North is an elegant hunter from the coldest part of the empire. Chiang Mai Warden is the beautiful champion of TEL and representative of HoNTour World Finals 2015.
- Bangkok Slayer
* This representative of the Central region is a veteran knight from the infamous capital. Bangkok Slayer is the man who ruled over 1,000 warriors, and he is more than ready to show his power to the world.
- Khon Kaen Predator
* This representative from the Northeast is the greatest warrior from the Highlands, a ruthless man famous for his strength, swiftness, and teamwork. Now it is your chance to join Khon Kaen Predator and become part of the Highland warrior legend!
- Phuket Valkyrie
* This representative of the South region is the unbeatable ruler of the ocean, and now is Phuket Valkyrie's time to expand her domain!

5's Taunt
- Laugh your way to victory with this Thai-inspired taunt! "555" in Thailand means "ha ha ha," so grab this taunt and get your Smackdown on!

Anna Announcer
- It's Finally here! Your long-awaited Announcer. Recording from Thailand famous comedian "Anna"

New POGs Avatar: Gladiator
- These high definition skins will be released one-per-patch and will be available via the store, Plinko, or both, depending upon the region.


== Bug Fixes & Optimizations ==

= General =

- N/A and +?/-? have been removed from the pick screen UI
- The Capture the Flag loading bar in matchmaking properly shows the player who is queueing and not the group leader's bar
- Illusions of avatars that "evolve" over the course of a game properly represent the current visuals of that avatar
* An example would be Doctor Gamer and his different forms
- Sound channels fade in & out properly when the following abilities are used at the same time:
* Rhapsody's Disco Inferno and Protective Melody
* Oogie's Conflagration and Primal Surge
* Music system in the Capture the Flag map
- 8-Bit Taunt volume increased
- Removed some unnecessary game file pre-caching

= Heroes =

Bombardier
- Bombardment and Boom Dust regain their charges and have their skill timers reset when Bombardier dies

Devourer
- Guttling Hook ability slightly re-scripted

Doctor Repulsor
- Doctor Gamer is no longer missing textures on medium and low graphic settings

Kane
- No longer loses mana if swapping Steamboots while having the Offensive Force mode on

Master of Arms
- Visuals for Waru Master of Arms have been fixed so his weapon will no longer persist while being morphed

Parallax
- 3D portraits on all alt avatars are now correct
- Ionic Dash fixed to properly allow Parallax to follow the Fulcrum if he touches the Fulcrum before the Fulcrum is finished travelling to its target destination
- Fulcrum Shift cooldown is now properly reduced in Blitz Mode

Silhouette
- Hexa Silhouette avatar outline has been adjusted

Valkyrie
- Attack animation with her auto-attack projectiles fixed for all alt avatars
- Brunhild Valkyrie's Javelin of Light now tracks the accuracy correctly
- Fixed a typo in the script ("Sheildbreaker" -> "Shieldbreaker")

War Beast
- Illusions no longer propagate the haste aura from Metamorphosis
* Intended as a corner-case fix to Circe's Doppelganger to fix it giving haste to Circe's own units
