DOTA 2 Beta Patch Notes (12/21/2011):

HEROES

  • Added DOTA 2 Bounty Hunter!
  • Beastmaster: Fixed Wild Axes being left behind when blinking to a location with a different z-value while they’re in-flight.
  • Ursa: Fixed fury swipes to apply the effect before the hit.

UI

  • “Watch Game” user menu option now also shows up for friends watching a game. Clicking it will take you to the same game they’re watching.

  • Increased range at which bots will consider coming to an ally’s defense.
  • Increased bot desire to retreat when they’re dangerously low on health.

It would all the time be stimulating to learn content from different writers and practice a little bit one thing from their store. I’d want to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
