    == Optimizations & Bug Fixes ==

    - Fixed Heroes disappearing if you reconnected during loading
    - Fixed the Mentor's cursor hanging around after the game was over
    - Sounds are now dampened when a Taunt is playing
    - Fixed an item-ordering problem when the courier is delivering
    - Fixed a bug when the courier delivers an upgradeable item and one other item to a hero that has a recipe for that upgradeable item
    * Before, the recipe would be consumed and no upgrade given
    - We now prefer to upgrade items over forming new ones
    * Example: Getting a Spellshards recipe into an inventory that has Spellshards level 1 and an Arcana will always make a Spellshards level 2, instead of two Spellshards level 1
    - Ignore and Banlist should work properly again
    - Language defaults to English if no language is set
    - Fixed occasional ingame crashes
    - Fixed HoNTV in D3D9Ex video mode
    - "New" items can no longer be right-clicked or combined in tournament mode
    - Negative Armor effects now correctly show up on tooltips
    - Fixed the Courier still belonging to the owner when the owner terminates
    - You can no longer disassemble items if you don't have stash access
    - Fixed incorrect purchase order of recipe items with sub-recipes
    - Fixed being able to use items from your stash

    - Frostburn/ Icebrand: Fixed a bug where Ranged attacks were not increasing the power of the snare if the remaining duration was greater than 1.5 seconds

    - Berzerker: Carnage now correctly reduces various stun durations
    - Dr Repulsor: Can no longer roll 3d100 and magically hit the perfect odds to instant kill a hero all the way across the map
    - Gauntlet: Grapple can no longer shoot behind him
    - Draconis: Fiery Barrage 's timer doesn't show "0.0s" all the time anymore
    - Devourer: Hid a state that is only for timing
    - Electrician: Energy Absorption 's icon fixed when using Demonbuster Electrician
    - Gladiator: Call to Arms icon fixed when using Gladius Beardicus
    - Kinesis: Telekinetic Lift and Mass Control timing states hidden on creeps
    - Plague Rider: Contagion and Plague Carrier 's icons fixed when using Frost Rider
    - Nymphora: Turning on the "no-help" feature now makes you an invalid target for Nymphora's Teleport
    - Kraken: Release the Kraken! fixed so it does not play an effect through fog
    - Kraken: Tsunami Charge fixed so you can crash people against invulnerable buildings
    - Ophelia: Fixed an invisible gadget that you were able to tab to
    - Madman: Berserk idle animation no longer continues once it expires
    - Maliken: Sword Throw gadget is no longer able to be tabbed to
    - Gemini: Fixed so items delivered from a Courier so that autocombine will work properly when Gemini is in Fire/Ice form
    - Monarch: Noxious Cloud fixed so it plays the proper sound
    - Monarch: Noxious Cloud visual effect tweaked so it is more accurate when compared to the actual AoE
    - Monkey King: Heavenly Vault fixed so vaulting while being teleported doesn't snap you back to where you were
    - Silhouette: Log Bolas fixed so it no longer plays through fog

    In addition, we applied a small client side patch to fix an issue with the match rewards screen for people who have a Custom Account Icon. We apologize for the inconvenience!
