What is the Voobly Balance Patch?


If you're not sure what terms like "no patch" or "EE" mean please read this topic first.
This patch is the best patch to use for all game modes apart from Death Match. For the current Death Match Balance Patch please go here.

The Voobly Balance Patch is a fan patch made mainly for the Supremacy game mode. It is developed by a team of top-level players. The patch's goal is to create a more balanced game without changing the game itself. The patch is played on Voobly and used by the majority of the Voobly community. The patch does not feature new units or upgrades, but alters the balance of existing facets of the game. The patch has introduced several new maps though. Of which some are included in the standard mapset normally used in rated, competitive games. The patch was first released in the fall of 2014, and has since then undergone 8 balance updates, with the most recent update being patch 5.0 in March of 2021.

Playing with the Balance Patch:
The patch is compatible only on Voobly. There are two ways to install the patch. The first, and easiest, is to simply join a game room that is using the patch. The patch will then automatically transfer to your Voobly mod folder. The other way is to install the patch from the links below.

The patch does NOT change any game files. Essentially, when the patch is enabled in the Voobly game lobby, Voobly tells AoT to load the customized files in the patch folder. Therefore AoT will launch using these customized files, which include all the balance changes. If you want to play without the patch, simply launch the game on Voobly without having the patch selected.

Release History:
Voobly Balance Patch 1.01 - Released October 5th, 2014
Voobly Balance Patch 1.02 - Released July 14th, 2015.
Voobly Balance Patch 1.03 - Released October 5th, 2015.
Voobly Balance Patch 1.04 - Released March 28th, 2016.
Voobly Balance Patch 1.05 - Released July 7th, 2016.
Voobly Balance Patch 2.0 - Released January 24th, 2017.
Voobly Balance Patch 3.0 - Released November 12th, 2018.
Voobly Balance Patch 4.0 - Released December 19th, 2019.
Voobly Balance Patch 5.0 - Released March 29th, 2021. -> Current Version

Blind Pick:
From patch 1.03 onwards a blind pick version of the same patch was introduced. When you play with blind pick on you are unable to see the god pick of your opponent. This is mostly used in tournaments to prevent people from constantly counter picking.

Voobly Balance Patch 1.03 Blind Pick - Released October 5th, 2015.
Voobly Balance Patch 1.04 Blind Pick - Released March 28th, 2016.
Voobly Balance Patch 1.05 Blind Pick - Released July 7th, 2016.
Voobly Balance Patch 2.0 Blind Pick - Released January 24th, 2017.
Voobly Balance Patch 3.0 Blind Pick - Released November 12th, 2018.
Voobly Balance Patch 4.0 Blind Pick - Released December 19th, 2019.

People have been asking for the entire changelog, so I've posted what is probably a long overdue Voobly Balance Patch overview and FAQ. This topic will be pinned and will also be updated periodically.

If anyone has any questions or comments in regards to the patch in general, please ask.
Thanks!

i think:
-colossos should return to the current price

-colossos train time shoud be decreased to the original

-forge olimpus Research time should be decreased to the original (30s)

1- giants fire is basically the same of colossus and is just 300, so why colossus should be 400? its pretty unbalanced line of thinking
2- u wont see colossus spam more, this mythical unit it's expensive and time-consuming.
3- greeks lose their lategame power (hephaestus because forge olympus and now colossos has been nerfed

-Loki's Battle Boar's speed shoud return to the current speed

-ragnarok with flame weapons should return to the current strenght

-eclipse + ancesters should return to the current strenght

-Valor should back to 3.

Thanks for posting the dates of each patch, had been meaning to ask about this. Really helpful when downloading a bunch of recs from a certain time frame and trying to figure out which patch to use

NO man you give no good reasons imo, leave ancestor+ eclipse as weak as it is. People complained too much about it , and will start to complain again if its back to normal . I mean it can kill a tc at around 8 minute mark . GG from there . Now with the current strenght of the powers it is not able to do that ,unless it has help from an army.

I dont even know what to say about the other things, but as greek : only ZEUS should be nerfed not Possy or Hades.
It' s Zeus favor bonus what makes him so incredibly op. This has been his strength from the beginning till the end.
It's his (free)favor favor favor, which has resulted in all kind of abuses like centaur spam; Next centaur got fixed but left the ROOT still intact : Zeus favor production bonus / double favor pool capacity / free favor etcetera...
Nerf Zeus Favor system more and give him rebate in standard resource myth unit cost like Loki or something.
Favor is the most powerful resource of this game , balancing this gets better games imo.

In nomad map, there is a bug when playing as Loki, after building your TC the game doesnt give you the free vills. While playing as thor you receive 2 dwarves and as odin 2 vills like any map

Nomad has a whole bunch of bugs; been that way since AoT came out. I've recently been working on updating nomad, but not done yet.

So JJ, these changes are from the original game to the latest patch, not from the one before last patch to the last patch, correct?
