Patch 1.17 (9 April 2013)
New features[edit | edit source]
- New map: Aiguillon!
Aiguillon, the new Awesomenauts map, is out now! This new map has a whole new layout and takes place in a ruined, forgotten temple on Leon's homeworld Aiguillon. Combatants wishing to dominate the map are advised to stay on their toes. That's because Leon's people, the Kremzon, heavily favour stealth in combat. The temple is built around a stealth orb, which grants the user a peroid of invisibility. Apart from the orb, the temple also features ample hiding places used to stay out of sight.
Legend tells the story of a giant cranky porcupine wandering through space. Furious at the sun for burning his eyes, he charged and killed both the light and himself. His prickly remains now orbit the dead sun and gave home to the Kremzon, a crude and devious species that spend most of their time in bustling cabarets and smokey cafés. Aiguillon's thorny rings conceal a mythical temple, rumored to hold the power of invisibility."
- New skin: Demon Skølldir!
Summoned by a sorcerous ritual, Demon Skølldir has entered our realm! Chaos follows in his wake! Tremble mortals, and despair for Demon Skølldir's fiery fists of doom are upon you!
- New skin: Genji the Grey!
Genji the Grey wizard is not some conjurer of cheap tricks. He's a trusty companion for any questing party in need of his wisdom or his crafty smoke rings! Are you in need of some some fireballs, wisdom and balrog smiting? Look no further than Genji the Grey!

Leagues[edit | edit source]
- Starting with the new Season (April+May), League 2 is now half as large as it used to be. League 3 has been grown to compensate for this.
- At times during the day when there are few people playing online, leagues 1 and 9 won’t join league 5 matches any more. (All other leagues still search 5 leagues wide at such moments, so for example league 4 players search for matches of leagues 2 to 6. At times when there are more people online, a league 4 player would search in leagues 3 to 5.)
Minor fixes[edit | edit source]
- Fixed that the Mac version would sometimes randomly not receive some packets. Such packets would then have to be resent, which caused a little bit of extra lag.
