new hero's aside, the ping wheel, turbo mode and new AA model are all wonderful also. I kinda regret on not getting the Jug set now with the voice pack. but oh well, hopefully I can buy it or something later if I want to.

out of the 2, I'm definitely going to try Dark Willow first. seems very useful in a lot of situations.

Everything is crazy about this patch, but the following is game-changing for beginners:
  • Turbo Mode
  • Heroes now start with a TP Scroll.
  • Third Roshan kill now drops a single-use consumable refresher orb.
  • Neutrals now sleep at night. They have zero aggro range while sleeping.
  • Removed the remaining Unique Attack Modifiers
  • Flying Courier upgrade can no longer be purchased. Courier now upgrades automatically at 3 minutes.
  • Courier can no longer be purchased more than once.
  • Battle Fury is now 400 gold cheaper
  • Iron Talon has been removed from the game.
  • Poor Man's Shield has been removed from the game.
  • OoV's damage over time no longer disables Blink
  • Meat Hook can pull Runes back to you. Mana cost is refunded if successful.
  • Enemy units in Smoke Screen have no vision.
  • Chat links are now automatically clickable.

holy crap! I didn't even scroll down to the actual patch notes earlier. now that I've really look into it, HOLY CRAP! is all I can say. I need some time to really think about some of these stuff.

I almost exclusively play AD. This is going to ruin it. I can see people chatting and demanding skills be left for them. Half the fun of AD is the draft where you try and predict what your team and enemy will try and draft.

Just waiting for someone to first pick Lina's passive and proceed to tell their teammates to save low cooldown spells.

Well at least AD got a new draft screen

it's kinda interesting with the rework on some of the hero's. take Brood for example, now you kinda have to go for the spiderling push tower build. and Morph's rework is really big. kinda have a 2nd better Rubick. and lol at the Riki lv25 talent. freaking no showing even when attacking is just trolling people.

Damn that Ability Draft screen is pretty sweet. I used to play it a fair bit but stopped, might start playing it again.

Haven't played in months but keen to play a little bit once this patch drops. just don't have the time to commit to regular play though. Any impressions of the new heroes yet?

I guess a lot of the game now is going to be getting your carry heroes to level 25 ASAP

I usually prefer Purge's super long patch break downs, even if I sometimes skip some parts, but Pyrion Flax just put out one video on this patch so it's a fun watch before Purge's comes out.

Played three turbo matches. I've been waiting for -apem for years. I kinda wish you couldn't buy items from anywhere because the lanes become a salve/clarity spamfest.

But, the games go fast, you get items/levels and I think i'm gonna jam on Turbo for a bit before going back to the "real" dota.

Played like 15 Turbo games, While it was fun, its chaos, some heroes are useless like alchemist I feel. Still prefer the normal games over Turbo games, but its cool if u want a casual game where u can get easily to lvl 25 and try item builds.

Can't wait for season rank, wondering how it will pan out. My precious mmr :(

I find the turbo mode fun. Games last 20 minutes, max 25 minutes, which makes it more manageable.

I'm interested in a MMR reset. I think that would get me back into the game.

And yes, turbo mode ruins the balance. Good luck picking Drow when the other team has a Spec, or playing a traditional support like CM when you can run Lina or QoP and still carry.

Is it a reset?
