Version notes

Updated to game version 6.87.

General

  • Reworked Ranked All Pick. Before the picking phase begins, there is a 15 second voting phase to ban heroes. Each player votes for a different hero. Afterwards, half of the heroes that were voted on will be randomly selected and banned.
    • Two players cannot vote for the same hero. The game displays heroes as they are voted on, but not who voted. The number of bans is equal to half the total number of votes. If there is an odd number of votes, the number of bans is randomly rounded up or down.
    • The random ban selection will choose at most 3 heroes from one specific team's votes, so it's more evenly split.
  • Each team now has a Scan ability, available on the minimap UI.
    • Scans a targeted 900 AoE for 8 seconds. Indicates whether there are enemy heroes in that area during the 8 seconds.
    • Starts on cooldown and has a global team-wide cooldown of 4.5 minutes
    • Note: Does not consider units inside the Roshan Pit, but does consider Smoked
    • Note: Does not show how many heroes there are, just if there are any enemies. Enemies do not know when your team casts it.

  • Hero base mana increased from 0 to 50
  • Mana per int reduced from 13 to 12

  • Roshan experience bounty changed from 1789 to 750 + 20/min
    • Compared to previously, Roshan gives less experience before the 52 minute mark and more after.
  • Minor adjustments to cast range mechanics to reduce overly long cast ranges when the target is moving quickly
  • Captains Mode Pick time from 40 to 30 seconds
  • Captains Mode Bonus time from 110 to 130 seconds
  • Captains Mode: Adjusted the order of bans in the 2nd ban phase (from 1st/2nd/1st/2nd to 2nd/1st/2nd/1st)
  • Captains Mode: Adjusted the order of picks in the final pick phase (from 2nd/1st to 1st/2nd)
  • Captains Mode: The overall pick/ban order for the two teams is now:

Ban2: 2nd/1st/2nd/1st
