[QUOTE=Rats808;34735086][url=http://store.steampowered.com/news/7364/]"Outworld Destroyer" instead of Obsidian Destroyer.[/url][/QUOTE] Only one hero? Well hell, I got excited for nothing to try out Gyrocopter.
Sounds so much less cooler.

[QUOTE=Reimu;34735129]You're missing the headline guys CM in matchmaking![/QUOTE] What exactly is Captain's Mode, do you have a team captain that picks everyone's hereos?

[B]- When a player is banned, everyone who reported them since their last ban receives a message when they next login informing them that justice has been served.[/B] LOLE
[QUOTE=Dogchow33;34735167]What exactly is Captain's Mode, do you have a team captain that picks everyone's hereos?[/QUOTE] Each team has a captain (blue for radiant, pink for dire) that first bans 2 heroes, then picks 3, then bans another 2, then picks the last 2. After that, everyone takes one of the heroes that the captain picked to play as. [editline]16th February 2012[/editline] [img]http://media.steampowered.com/apps/dota2/posts/OutworldDestroyer_full.jpg[/img] Fucking awesome.
[QUOTE=Dogchow33;34735167]What exactly is Captain's Mode, do you have a team captain that picks everyone's hereos?[/QUOTE] Sort of. Basically, each team has a captain (party/lobby leader) and the captains alternate between banning certain heroes and picking heroes. When heroes have been completely picked & banned, then each player chooses their own hero and the game begins. The point is to purposefully develop a team with good chemistry while banning heroes who will obstruct, counter, or otherwise hinder your team. It upps the amount of strategy in DOTA and makes the game 50% bans/picks, 50% actual game/meta-game.
[quote]- Fixed sweet exploit where you could buy a nice juicy passive item, give it to another friendly hero, have that hero die and upon respawn the passive effects of the item would be granted -- Desolator would start desolating, butterfly would start buttering, etc.[/quote] What does this even mean? :v:
[QUOTE=CowThing;34735279]What does this even mean? :v:[/QUOTE] Snip*I was wrong.
[QUOTE=CowThing;34735279]What does this even mean? :v:[/QUOTE] You could buy an item with a passive and give it to an ally, which would normally make it not work for them, then if they died it [b]would[/b] work for them. [editline]16th February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Horse Strangler;34735311]Snip*I was wrong.[/QUOTE] Not necessarily I think we were both just guessing. Could have been what he said, too.
Rats I sent you an invite join our chat and see DOTA vets get mad that there's only one new hero
Only obsidian destroyer?! [QUOTE]On the bright side, our game team has been working as usual, building new hero[B]es[/B] and features. So you can expect our next update, which we’re probably going to regret saying will be out next week, to be a packed one.[/QUOTE] Eat shit valve.
[QUOTE=aydin690;34735405]Only obsidian destroyer?! Eat shit valve.[/QUOTE] It's still a [i]really[/i] long changelog. +We still have the Dota 2 Test release, which will probably be a lot more.
Wait you can get banned if you get enough reports? Sounds exploitable to me.
[quote]- Added new game mode: Single Draft. - New interface for finding lobbies. - Added game mode (AP, SD, CM) selection for matchmaking. - Your own private games are now displayed in your match history.[/quote] Yessssssss Those options are so much better than an extra hero for me.
[QUOTE=Thugaim;34735446]Wait you can get banned if you get enough reports? Sounds exploitable to me.[/QUOTE] I assume it has to be a ridiculously high amount of reports, and I don't think it would be an automatic ban either.
