My first complaint is you guys are already making these big statements (beta 1 is beta then 1-a). Its been out for about a day or two and your already flaming it? Play the game a bit more, perhaps for a week or two, then come back and make your complaints. Unclean Beast is not useless...he can fish out 1.8k damage + quick (900 damage + 900 hp absorb + Stun move, followed by the 900 damage spit). Thats basically unavoidable aswell. And seeming how he can move faster then original demigods they cant just "move out the way".
The bugs is perfectly understandable, afterall its a beta, and if it didnt have bugs well then this would be the first beta in the world without them. Thats not an arguement you can use to compare beta 1 with 1-A.
They know they have taken out lots of items, but its not permanent. I think they're just trying to balance it, and it is rlly hard tbh. I like the item nerf aswell. Towards late game in beta 1 some of damage demigods could dish out due to their op items was a joke..
Less stun is GREAT, really like that and you compensated it with slow which can still be deadly but actually takes some skill to use.
I like the teleporter scroll nerf, you have to think before you use it now and you wont just see demigods teleporting back and forth every few seconds.
There is currently a problem with gold. Items are cheaper (in general) but the amount of gold we get can be crazy at times. I had 35k at one point and didnt know what to spend it on.
New flag/gold mine positions is a lot more interesting. You actually have to be constantly fighting for flanks AND middle now, adds lots of depth. Oh and I like how the artifact shop in middle belongs to the player who has middle flag, great idea.
They nerfed flag locking aswell, which was ridicolous in beta 1, but is still usable in beta 1-A.
Overall I have to say great job on this beta, you've really changed it for the better. Ofc there are bugs to work on and some balance issues, but hey this is an engine test isnt it Perhaps our gold income needs to be nerfed a bit or increase the price of items to compensate? Cant wait to see the general demigods.
