Yesterday, S2games released an update for Heroes of Newerth. Aside from fixing some bugs they add a Practice Mode which decreases the leaver threshold to 8% and they also add a new hero Andromeda, based on DotA's Vengeful Spirit.

Along with this new hero Andromeda fixes and updates for the balance of the game will be officially released soon ( Version 0.1.41) this patch features:

- Added Practice mode. To access practice mode, create a game online with the server set to "practice"
- Fixed a couple pathing routes through the trees near the Hellbourne secret stop on Forests of Caldavar

- Whispering Helm now plays life steal effects

- Cast impact time on Enrage set to 0.69 seconds (from 0.5)
- Cast impact time on Shockwave set to 0 (from 0.3 seconds)
- Magic Immune targets will cause Shockwave to spawn an additional wave of damage (though it will not damage them)

Wretched Hag:

- Added improved impact effects to Sonar Scream
- Added improved impact effects to Bat Blast
- Fixed an issue causing Bat Blast's effects not to play when Wretched Hag has Staff of the Master

- Call of the Valkyrie now only hits visible units

Bug fixes:
- Fixed an issue that would cause some players to be unable to buy back sometimes
- Fixed an issue with units bound to projectiles (Valkyrie's leap, electrician's grip) being targetable at their original location
* This fixes issues like Pyromancer's Dragonfire stunning Valkyrie if it impacts while valkyrie is still in the air, despite having leaped outside the range of the AOE
- Fixed an issue causing auto-assemble items not to sell for their correct price
- Fixed an issue causing players to lose an item when it is swapped from a courier into a lot of the stash that already had an item on it
