Patch notes


Game Modes

  • Added All Random Deathmatch.



  • Removed waiting for spectators in private lobbies


User Interface

  • Added many new loading screen tips
  • Fixed and adjusted several tooltips and ability descriptions
  • Alt-clicking on an item in an enemy hero's inventory now informs your teammates that the enemy has that item
  • Alt-clicking on the buyback button or your gold will notify your team of your current buyback status
  • Items may now be dropped from the stash while dead
  • Fixed replay highlight reel transition graphic getting stuck on sometimes
  • Fixed a bug in the Coach UI where the help text sometimes overlapped the student checkboxes, rendering them unusable


  • Players can no longer drop or take other players' unsharable items on the courier
  • Players can no longer store other players' unsharable items in their stash
  • Items on heroes controlled by players who have disconnected, but not yet abandoned, can no longer be dropped from their inventories
  • Fixed a case where picking up an item owned by another player triggered an item combine, using items from the owning player's stash. If the item was owned by an enemy player, this would combine and steal the whole item.

1v1 Mode

  • Side towers are now always Invulnerable


  • Added new Bot AI for Riki minimap icon.png Riki
  • Added new Bot AI for Pudge minimap icon.png Pudge
  • Added new Bot AI for Axe minimap icon.png Axe
  • Bots in solo bot matches will wear your equipped cosmetics


  • Increased the size of the importer preview
  • Added particle system attachment point editing as part of the submission process for certain wearable items (like Drow Ranger's bow)
  • Fixed a bug where sub model pages weren't being flipped back to the first page when opening a model that only needed the first page
  • Fixed the attachment list not being initialized properly, which was leading to the default selection being blank
  • Fixed a bug where lighting in the preview would darken after the portrait editor was opened
  • Updated text to make it clearer that model budgets are in triangles, not polygons

Compendium Tools

  • Several new features for Third Party compendiums. Documentation at Dota2 Compendium Scriptfiles
  • Fixed test_local_compendium not precaching images the way the download path did, which resulted in subtle differences in some cases.
