This is shaping up to be one of the best patchs, if not the best patch they've done for Dota 2. Some good balancing to existing heroes, new game mode, 2 new heroes, loads of skins etc. Really looking forward to this one.

I think this Phoenix could kick a certain other MOBA phoenix's ass.

I am so excited for New Bloom to go live on the main client. I'll likely even go so far as to purchase an item set or two just because a few of them look awesome. Two new heroes (again!) is awesome and I also liked some of the balance changes that were announced in yesterdays news...especially Lion's new FingerS of Death haha.

The replay match holds little interest to me. Basically, I'm excited for the two new characters and the random ability mode. That should be really fun.

Can you imagine a tank like Pudge getting Axe's Helix or something? *bleep* I just wonder how it will work with ranged abilities and melee. Like, if I'm Bloodseeker, how the hell am I gonna be able to use Sniper's Take Aim

Darknet I'd imagine a ranged hero would grab Take Aim long before you were "stuck" with it as a melee guy. It's a draft, not just randomly assigned.

I know but STILL. What if it happened? Surely Valve has accounted for this.

I think it would actually extend the melee heroe's attack range. Because the skill is just a flat attack range increase, and every hero has a different attack range, even melee heroes, some hit further than others.

Well some guy drafted Drow's ultimate on Bloodseeker and got a...nothing. In other news, I tried out Phoenix just now and went 11 / 3 /19 in my second game as him. Pretty fun to play.

edit » played some more games with him and now I'm sitting on a nice 80% win rate from 5 games. Of course, these are all in regular (non-ranked) Match Making because I'm just learning how to play him. For those interested, I went for Arcane boots and Meka at first, then in the latest game I went for Tranquil boots for the nice HP regen because every move requires an HP sacrifice followed by a Heart then Radiance. In the last game I even went ahead and finished off a Divine Rapier too because it was clear their Ancient was about to fall.

Spiderlings on Witch Doctor gave me gross imagery.

Tbh, I'm fresh to the game but seems I got the best to time to join Dota2. Phoenix and Terrorblade both look nice, still yet to try them out because I am getting in touch with other heroes. Phoenix's skills seem interesting though.
