still a lack of custom maps. Didn't you guys promise that on RELEASE?
Of course, I'm not S2. I just like pointing out that DX11 isn't a magical upgrade that improves how a game looks; you have to do things with DX11 in addition to providing DX11 support (and even then you'd need DX10 support as well, perhaps, and a dual launcher a la Civilisation V).
In software development, plans often change. The most recent example of that was the decision to go to 2.5 instead of 3.0, based on the time taken to develop content for "3.0".

Must be a real challenge to make good bots in these games.
The dota2 bots right now are pretty retarded. But the AI on some DotA-bot-maps are often pretty good.
If only the Mac client was completely fixed I would bother to care about that list.
You talkin' to me?
Maybe a new tutorial that teaches you something about the game?
so basically we are told stuff we already know...and bots? rlly? is this all you have? this is your bright innovative idea for trying to keep people to play hon and not move on? because the games struggling to stay alive like a fish flopping out of water

Thanks for the sig Lhune <3
Check out My blog in which i post chapters of my novel every so often http://lightvoid.wordpress.com/
All nice and neat...just have to wait and see what "soon" really means this time.
You guys can give up on the online use of the map editor, god knows I have.
Game is F2P and they won't waste resources on it unless its to make a buck.
Hence the BOTS to reel in and keep new players so they can spend money.
Oh and that dumb mentor system to help new players.
well first of all thanks Maliken for actually informing us about what is going on, we DO appreciate these posts, we just want more of them, more regularly ..
second, i like the changes and all so well done S2
hope we get to see the results soon :3
Iirc you've said before that bots would require a lot of time and effort, and at the end it wouldn't be worth all the trouble, but here you are trying to add them in anyway instead of spending that time creating the fabled custom map support that we are never going to see. Even that small glimmer of hope, the midwars map, seems to have vanished like a fart to the wind.
I could appreciate all these stability improvements & fixes if they weren't months overdue, and if I wouldn't know the game isn't going to get them for another ten months.
Good info, nice to know what's going on behind the scenes.
To all those complaining: feel free to not play this free game.
