This week’s Dota 2 test patch has arrived somewhat earlier in the day than normal and with what Valve are calling an “embarrassing lack of content”. However fans of hats, beards and bows would disagree. You can see the full official changelog here.

The new layout for the team management page:

The “View Profile” page:

There is no longer a “Team Captain”, they are now referred to as a “Team Admin”:

Back End Changes

Updated Strings

Magnataur’s primary name has been renamed to “Magnus”:

    "npc_dota_hero_magnataur"      "Magnus"
									

All of Magnus` abilities have been updated to reflect this change:

    "DOTA_Tooltip_ability_magnataur_shockwave_Description"          "Magnus sends out a wave of force, damaging enemy units in a line."
    "DOTA_Tooltip_ability_magnataur_skewer_Description"            "Magnus rushes forward up to 800 distance, goring enemy units on his massive tusk.  Units hit on the way will be dragged to the destination, then damaged and slowed."
    "DOTA_Tooltip_ability_magnataur_reverse_polarity_Description"      "Magnus changes properties of matter, sucking all nearby enemies in front of him and stunning them with a powerful slam and dealing damage."

									

Magnus` Bio is also in:

    "npc_dota_hero_magnataur_bio"                    "The master-smiths of Mt. Joerlak agree on only a single point: that the horn of a magnoceros is more precious than any alloy. And of all such horns, the largest and sharpest belongs to the beast they call Magnus. For half a generation, Magnus took easy sport goring hunters come to claim the treasures of his kin. Each time he would return to his cave with hooves and horns stained red, until his Matriarch urged him and all their kin to seek refuge to the north beyond the shadow of the mountain. But Magnus scoffed, having never failed to defend his people. The magnoceri would stay, he decided, for a magnoceros does not believe in chance... nor does it ever change its mind. But when Mt. Joerlak erupted without warning, and half his kin perished in the fire and ash, Magnus changed his mind after all. The survivors pushed north, until they reached a blockade watched over by a hundred hunters armed with bow and steel. Magnus expected no less. He led his fiercest brothers and sisters in a charge against their enemies, and fought with a ferocity matched only by the fire-spewing mountain at his back. Meanwhile the magnoceros elders, mothers, and calves vanished into the drifts. The master-smiths are divided about what happened next. Some say Magnus reunited with his kin, while others claim he suffered mortal injuries and expired alongside the body of his Matriarch. Neither theory is correct. Magnus did vow to rejoin his kin...but only after seeking out those responsible for the eruption of Mt. Joerlak and watching them die upon his horn, for a magnoceros does not believe in chance."
									

The new team profile strings:

    "dota_view_teamprofile"    "View Profile"

    // team profile
    "dota_team_profile_hed"                    "TEAM PROFILE"
									

“Team Captain” has now been completely renamed to “Team Admin”:

    "DOTA_UserMenu_TeamTransferAdmin"                "Make Team Admin"

    "DOTA_TeamDisbanded_Member_Message"                "The admin of your team has disbanded the entire team. You are no longer a member of %s1."
    "DOTA_TeamLeave_Confirmation_Message"              "Do you wish to leave %s1? The team admin will need to re-invite you if you want to rejoin."

    "DOTA_TeamTransferAdmin_Confirm_Header"              "CHANGE TEAM ADMIN"
    "DOTA_TeamTransferAdmin_Confirm_Message"            "Do you wish to make %s1 the team Admin?  If you continue, you will no longer be able to manage this team."




									

Nolan North is credited with doing the voice work for Magnus:

Nolan North - Brewmaster, Gyrocopter, Keeper of the Light, Lone Druid, Lycan, Magnus, Meepo, Ogre Magi, Shadow Demon

Predictions For The Next Hero

I’m sticking with my previous week’s prediction that we are going to see Magnus the Magnataur as the next hero in Dota 2, in approximately 6.75 days from this prediction maybe?

      No more than 2 weeks for new ver. Brace yourself.

      Is this “6.75 days” some kind of hint related to Dota 1 next map, which is 6.75 ?
      Icefrog said that 6.75 was going to be released after the international, rumours say it will add a new hero, and some skill remakes to phoenix and pit lord.

      • http://www.facebook.com/thales.dalmolin Thales Felipe Dal Molin

        Ok, I think it is totally related, here is the new loading screen http://wyksblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/dota-load-675.jpg for the new version, 6.75 will be released in the near future

        • http://www.facebook.com/thales.dalmolin Thales Felipe Dal Molin

          6.75 released. 2 New heroes, 1 New item, and a lot of skills reworked :)

      A joke, the file name has “bling” in it.

    Heads up:
    Just above the image of Faceless Void’s chest, you have it titled as Sven’s “Treasure of the Rogue Knight” instead of the correct title. :P

  • rodiguez

    i dont wanna see 6.75

  • lancee

    again no hero :(

  • CoCo

    Anybody got a feeling that they will release both centaur and magnus?

      I’d guess considering IT’S THE SAME CHARACTER.

        To be fair, the way the designed Magnus does kinda make him just look like a bulkier centaur.

    • posnisir

      They will definitely release more than one hero. They even said they will make up for the lack of content of this patch next week

    • Alex

      yep, there are even materials for Slark. I hope these 3 heroes enter the game :D

      Who the fuck is Quillman you dumbfuck? you throw puns here and there without saying what you really mean

  • russia good

    LOL valve steal centaur and magnataur from world of warcraft 3

    • posnisir

      Yeah, because Blizzard obviously invented the Centaurs

    • asd

      world of warcraft 3 ? :o

    • T3rM1nA0R

      You sir, Have failed…

  • Svyaga

    Is it just me or there is almost no difference between new ench texture and the oldest one?

    • Blutsense

      Yeah because no one liked the other models so valve probably thought they should just remake the textures of the oldest ones

  • WetWater

    I’m just glad they fixed Enchantress; it’s still not as good as the original model, though.

  • qjank

    i think they will push the update after 6.75 is released

  • MagePower

    I can’t belive they are not releasing gorgon …

  • david

    6.75, i saw what you did there ;D

  • corea

      you should do it and post it on the workshop. Then we can all laugh at you.

  • russia good

    So… why are the centaur and the magnataur TAUR (bull), although they are technically horses?
    need rename quick valve

  • Dante

  • defekt19754

    How about strange modifiers inside new chests, is there any info inside new files about them? I am wondering if there will be some new general (not hero specific) modifiers, when so many chests are coming.

    Fuck you Cyborgmatt! your full of shit, all this shit that you said was coming out in this patch were bullshit!

    Hey Cyborgmatt, is that true that they will made the map symmetrical?
    And about Lord of Avernus (a.k.a. Abaddon), why he isn’t on the development list. It was a hero so traditional…

    By the way, thanks for the update! ^^

  • Casinocaster
