Recommended Posts


This patch includes a new Minion multi-Select and Move feature, a lot of balance changes, mainly targeted at runes and more bugfixes and polish.

Game Version  V2.1.0.33336.PTR:

New Feature - Minion Multi Select & Move

Having looked at the feedback we've been receiving from the survey, it was clear that players wanted a way to be able to multi select minions and move them. 

Now when you go to move minions, if you click and hold you will be able to drag the circle reticle around to select multiple minions. Once you release the hold you will then be able to tell them to move to a single location or if you click and hold again you will be able to drag a line that evenly spaces them out.
