What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The goals of Early Access are to gather and incorporate player feedback to improve the game. Early Access players are essential in shaping the future of Legion TD 2.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for approximately 1-2 years.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Legion TD 2 has weekly content updates, so in some sense, the game is never "complete" - we're excited to improve the game for years to come. The following features are planned during Early Access:
  • More units and legions
  • Enchantments - Pre-game specs
  • Guilds
  • Shop/cosmetics

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Legion TD 2 is a fully playable, polished game, featuring:
  • 100+ unique units
  • 6 playable legions: Mech, Grove, Element, Forsaken, Atlantean, and Nomad
  • Mastermind: Randomized fighters (a.k.a. "Prophet")
  • 2v2 and 4v4 matchmaking
  • Reconnecting
  • Anti-leaver/AFK/griefer detection
  • Practice mode against bots
  • Custom games for tournaments, in-houses, and 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 games
  • Leaderboards, achievements, player profiles, and stat-tracking

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will not be priced differently during Early Access with the exception of occasional discounts.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are incredibly active and responsive on our community forums and Discord channel. We constantly communicate with players on game balance, design, and other issues to make the game the best it can be. We've made countless changes and resolved over 1,000 bugs due to player feedback.”

Localization Update



- The game is now smarter about detecting default language for new players
- Post-game screen and cards/items are now ready to be translated (they were previously missing from the translation docs)
- All tooltips now use variables instead of hardcoded values. This means that when we change an ability from 90 -> 100 damage, you won’t have to update the translation (it automatically does it now)
-- We ran a script that automatically converted all existing translations to the new variable format. A small number of translations may have reversed variables ($1 and $2 swapped), so please help us correct those.

If you’re interested in helping, check out http://legiontd2.com/translate. Any help is greatly appreciated and will allow us to significantly grow the player base (larger player base = better matchmaking, more featured game modes, etc.). Thank you to everyone who has contributed.

v3.13 Patch Notes

- Released to live servers!

NEW! Custom Games 2.0

You can now select game modes and adjust starting resources in custom games. More modes and options to come in the future.





NEW! Mercenary



Cannoneer
- Cost: 100 mythium
- Income: 30
- Movement type: Ground
- Health: 950 (Swift)
- Damage: 102 (Impact)
- Attack speed: 0.67
- Range: 500

Game Fixes & Improvements

Pathing & Targeting
- Fixed a pathing bug where melee units would sometimes keep trying to turn around when trying to attack a unit in the cave
- Fixed a rare edge case where a unit moved faster than intended

Quality of Life
- Profiles now show Classic wins/losses (we just started tracking this statistic now, so everyone will start at 0 wins, 0 losses even if you already played classic games earlier this season)
- Leaderboards and profile percentile rankings are now more accurate (it now only compares you against players that are active this season, not all players)
- Post-game score screen now shows win/losses for that queue type
- Post-game score screen Waves tab now shows King hp percents
- Custom Games now start with normal resources (no longer -debug and resources by default). This should make it easier to practice builds or play co-op with friends.
- Buff tooltips now show a larger icon

Chat
- New chat emojis :sob: and :money:



Stability
- Fixed a matchmaking bug where the matchmaker would get stuck and not form the correct matches (iterator was mistakenly being incremented when in skip phase (substep); should only be incremented when it’s a new main step)
- Fixed a concurrency issue (OnMatchMade now fires after the lock is released)
- Added a failsafe where the lobby will restart if no ranked matches start in a 5-minute span

Debugging
- Fixed a bug with -wave 0 not clearing properly

Game Balance


King
- Chain Frost: Bounce speed: 3000 -> 4000
- Lightning Hammer: Bounce speed: 5000 -> 6000, Damage reduced by 3%

Making these abilities feel better against Froggos and Lizards

Fighters


Desert Pilgrim
- Improved Chain Heal autocast AI and bounce behavior: it will now bounce to any injured targets, instead of only targets missing a certain amount of hp. This fixes a few cases where it wouldn't bounce to an injured target that it should have bounced to.


Whitemane
- Health: 4450 -> 4400


Fatalizer
- Attack speed: 1.47 -> 1.43


Eggsack
- Incubation: No longer immediately hatches a weakened Hydra on the wave Eggsack breaks (still hatches a weakened Hydra the following wave)
- New ability: Eggsplosion: Upon death, deals 80 Pure damage to nearby enemies
- Now aggroes the rest of your lane a bit later so that melee DPS can be used more effectively with Eggsack (we recommend testing once in a custom game)


Hydra
- New ability: Ancient Power: Gains +1% damage and +1% damage reduction for each wave that has passed (the wave number matters, not how long Hydra has been out)
- Health: 3150 -> 2850
- Damage: 120 -> 114
- Hydraling: Health: 1050 -> 950
- Hydraling: Damage: 40 -> 38

The goals of these changes are to:
  • Nerf the strategy of using Eggsack as a tank mid-late game
  • Make protecting Eggsack a viable strategy mid-late game
  • Make sure it isn’t overly punishing if your Eggsack breaks on wave 3

Hades
- Raise Imp: Mana cost: 17 -> 16


Great Boar
- Stampede: Damage increased by 10%
- Stampede: Area of effect: 250 -> 400


Red Eyes
- Thunderous Charge: Damage increased by 10%
- Thunderous Charge: Area of effect: 250 -> 400

Mercenaries


Centaur
- Health: 4300 -> 4500
- Damage: 195 -> 205
- Cleave: 30% -> 20%

Centaur currently shuts down too many builds and makes certain units (notably Swift/Arcane tanks and lower tier tanks) obsolete late game. Shifting some power from splash to base stats. It will still be strong against those units, but less extreme.


Kraken
- Health: 6600 -> 6400
- Damage: 290 -> 280
- Spell Resistance: Removed
- New ability: Ancient Power: Gains +1% damage and +1% damage reduction for each wave that has passed

Kraken was only used to hard counter Honeyflowers and Pyros on ranged waves. It will still be strong against those units, but Kraken deserves to be more versatile, epic, and stronger late game.

Waves


(5) Scorpions
- Fixed an unintended case where Scorpion King would avoid getting aggroed first against some builds


(6) Rockos
- Health: 800 -> 830
- Damage: 38 -> 39
- Impale: 4% stacking up to 20 times -> 3% stacks up to 9 times

Note that Impale never actually stacked 20 times, except in rare cases in 4v4 dual building or when 8+ Rockos leaked to the king

Rockos’s Impale is insanely strong when focusing the same target, which is sometimes the result of RNG. It also makes tier 1 spam and splits even stronger than they should be (they will still be strong). Also worth noting that a high % of lower-rated games end on wave 6 due to cheese strategies, undervaluing tier 1 units, and not understanding splits.



(14) Killer Slugs
- Health: 2030 -> 2000


(16) Cardinals
- Health: 1880 -> 1900


(20) Maccabeus
- Damage: 160 -> 165
- Insatiable Hunger: Removed

With the introduction of Witch and Maccabeus’ fast attack speed, summoners and tier 1 spam aren’t broken anymore - if anything, they are weak on wave 20. The goal of this change is to increase the number of viable units on wave 20, while also nerfing it. Maccabeus is really cool (he’s a fire breathing turtle), but it feels unfair to have a boss wave be so decisive. Some games will still end on 20, but now a higher percentage of games will go to 21.

Projectile Speeds

Slow projectile speeds inflate the power of tier 1 spam and splits, so we’re making them faster for mercenaries and waves. These changes should only be minor buffs against very low health units

- Lizards: 1500 -> 2500
- Hermit: 1500 -> 2500
- Drake: 1500 -> 2500
- Witch: 1500 -> 2500
- Froggo: 1500 -> 2500
- Shaman: 1500 -> 2500
- Kobras: 1500 -> 2500
- Quill Shooters: 1750 -> 2500
- Quadrapuses: 1500 -> 2500
- Dire Toads: 1500 -> 2500

v3.12 Patch Notes
- Released to Public Test Realm (PTR). How do I join PTR?
- Released to live servers

NEW! King Spells

The king now starts with a random spell, instead of Judgment every time (same spell for both kings). The spells are thematically unique but intentionally have a similar effect. Their purpose is to make sure large leaks aren’t overly punishing to the king, which keeps small-medium leaks relevant.


Judgment
- Mana cost: 5 -> 4
- Damage: Reduced by 23%
- Now has a small amount of damage variance that independently applies to each unit (to avoid hard thresholds that occasionally made Upgrade Spell overpowered or useless)


Immolation
- Deals damage every second to all nearby enemies


Chain Frost
- Mana cost: 4
- Releases an orb of frost that jumps to all nearby enemies, dealing +2% damage per bounce
- Slows attack speed by 15% for 3 seconds (1.5 seconds to bosses). This effect is also amplified by Upgrade Spell


Lightning Hammer
- Mana cost: 3
- Drains mana over his next 3 attacks, unleashing bouncing lightning bolts

NEW! Tier 6 & Nomad Release


Great Boar
- Cost: 270 gold + 1 supply
- Upgrades to: Red Eye
- Movement type: Ground
- Health: 3200 (Fortified)
- Damage: 55 (Pierce)
- Attack speed: 1.0
- Range: Melee


Stampede
Begins accelerating and gaining mana as soon as the wave spawns, and upon collision, deals 15 damage per 10 mana and slows attack speed by 10% in an area of effect

Mana gain can be amplified by Starcaller and Sorcerer, and the attack speed debuff stacks.


Red Eyes
- Upgrade Cost: 420 gold + 1 supply
- Movement type: Ground
- Health: 8200 (Fortified)
- Damage: 141 (Pierce)
- Attack speed: 1.0
- Range: Melee


Thunderous Charge
Begins accelerating and gaining mana as soon as the wave spawns, and upon collision, deals 35 damage per 10 mana and slows attack speed by 15% in an area of effect

Mana gain can be amplified by Starcaller and Sorcerer, and the attack speed debuff stacks.


With the release of Great Boar and Red Eyes, Nomad is now a fully playable legion. Progress on legion 7 has already begun.

Game Fixes & Improvements

Loading Screen
- Now also displays your current rank



Sounds
- Significantly improved sound mixer. Spells/buffs/special effects are now better prioritized over attack sounds. Previously it would be impossible to hear these sounds because attack sounds would drown them out

Stability
- Fixed a few cases where some things wouldn't load properly on the client (RendererDispatcher concurrency fixes)

Gameplay Fixes
- Fixed a pathing/targeting bug where melee units would accidentally move slower after acquiring a target that was far away
- Fixed a few misc interface bugs
- Fixed a minor abuse case where your lane's enemies would warp back to the cave after pulling enemies from another player's lane

Translations
- Updated! If you notice any missing or incorrect translations, check out LegionTD2.com/translate

Game Balance


Mastermind
- Significantly improved roll equitability (reduced range by 9 percentage points). You will now see every unit in your roll with similar frequency. Mastermind guarantees (at least one Tier 1, etc. still exist)


Leak Bounty
- Bounty to opposing team slightly decreased early game (same late game). The goals are to slightly reduce snowballiness early game and slightly reduce gold in the ecosystem in high leak games, which also reduces long saving for 5+ waves

Legion Spells


Villain
- Damage amplification: 17% (11% for ranged) -> 17% (13% for ranged)

Fighters


Pollywog
- Attack speed: 1.22 -> 1.176


Peewee
- Health: 310 -> 320


Green Devil
- Health: 760 -> 780


Kingpin
- Health: 4000 -> 4250
- Big Game Hunter: Heal: 12% -> 10%

Despite Angler being a popular opening, data strongly suggests Kingpin is weak. Shifting power from Big Game Hunter to base stats so that it stays relevant late game without being overly dominant early game


Pyro
- Upgrade cost: 180 -> 175
- Damage: 33 -> 32
- Range: 200 -> 250

If you start Pyro, you can now get your 4th worker at the end of wave 1 instead of at the start of wave 2


Sky Queen
- Damage: 84 -> 83

The data suggests Sky Queen is too strong, but we’re going light on the nerfs because some of the strongest tanks, which are important to a Sky Queen build, are also receiving nerfs


Violet
- Lightning Strike: Mana cost: 10 -> 9


King Claw
- Damage: 145 -> 140


Golem
- Health: 4900 -> 4830
- Damage: 151 -> 148


Butcher
- Health: 1070 -> 1300
- Damage: 67 -> 45
- Range: 200 -> 100 (Melee)


Head Chef
- Health: 2300 -> 3200
- DPS: 117 -> 84
-- Damage: 130 -> 97
-- Attack Speed: 0.9 -> 0.87
- Range: 200 -> 100 (Melee)
- Skull Stew: Mana cost: 10 -> 15

We previously made Head Chef ranged so it would be able to heal before dying, but that made the unit feel worse because it stopped tanking for DPS units like Nightmare. We’re making Head Chef melee, tankier, and shifting some power out of Skull Stew into base stats.


Azeria
- Damage: 67 -> 66

Shaving off a little power to allow Green Devil and Lord of Death to compete with Azeria.


Doppelganger
- Health: 3600 -> 3700

After the range nerf a few patches ago, Doppelganger still dies too easily


Whitemane
- Health 4200 -> 4450
- Damage: 175 -> 180
- Council: Damage reduction: 5 + 20% -> 5 + 15%

Whitemane needs a nerf, and it’s hard to continue nerfing base stats without the aura becoming too much of the unit’s power budget (the aura is still incredibly strong)


Fatalizer
- Attack speed: 1.52 -> 1.47


Sand Badger
- Attack speed: 0.833 -> 0.806


Iron Scales
- Attack speed: 0.833 -> 0.806


Eggsack
- Hydra now spawns with 3x the number of stacks (instead of 2x) on the wave Eggsack breaks


Lord of Death
- Undead Dragon: Devour: Health restore: 15% -> 25%


Hades
- Imp: Devour: Health restore: 15% -> 25%

Early game buff. Makes it not as bad when Undead Dragon or Imp steal a kill from Lord of Death or Hades.


Banana Bunk
- Health: 2890 -> 2900
- Barbs: Damage: 25 + 10% -> 20 + 10%


Banana Haven
- Health: 6250 -> 6500
- Damage: 51x3 -> 57x3
- Thorns: Damage: 40 + 15% -> 30 + 15%

These units have been dominant for far too long. Time to give them a legitimate nerf in the early-mid game, while still keeping them relevant late game.


Warg
- Health: 970 -> 990


Alpha Male
- Health: 3300 -> 3350

Waves

Wave balance is in a good spot. Just doing some slight adjustments.


(15) Quadrapuses
- Attack speed: 0.84 -> 0.86


(16) Cardinals
- Health: 1850 -> 1880


(20) Maccabeus
- Damage: 165 -> 160

About This Game

OVERVIEW

  • 2v2 and 4v4 competitive strategy game
  • Single-player and cooperative modes against bots of varying difficulties
  • Global Servers: Compete against players from around the world
  • 75+ unique fighters (towers), 6 legions and more to come, and Mastermind mode (randomized fighters)
  • Matchmaking, reconnecting, anti-leaver/AFK/griefer detection, leaderboards, achievements, player profiles, and stat-tracking
  • Balanced for competitive play with weekly balance patches

GAMEPLAY

It's like a tower defense, but instead of building towers, you deploy dynamic fighters that come to life and move, attack, and cast spells automatically. Defend your lane against waves of enemies and hire mercenaries to attack your opponents. To win, you must defeat the opposing team's king before they defeat yours. From start to finish, a match lasts around 20 minutes.

HISTORY

Legion TD 2 is the standalone sequel to the hugely popular Warcraft III mod, Legion TD, which inspired StarCraft II’s Squadron TD and Dota 2’s Legion TD: Reborn. Legion TD 2 is made by the same team that created the original mod.

THE TEAM

Legion TD 2 is made by an indie team of 4 friends: Brent 'Lisk' Batas, Julian 'Jules' Gari, Jean 'Curing' Go, and Dani. Lisk and Jules have been best friends for over 20 years and have been playing and designing games together since they were kids.
