Front End Changes

Elder Titan

elder_titanElder Titan.

Well may you ask, “How did this world take its form?” Why of all the worlds in creation, has this one its strange properties, its diverse and motley collection of creatures, cultures and lore? “The answer,” One whispers, “lies with the Titans.”

These original progenitors were there near the Beginning–if not actual witnesses to the creation, then born with it still echoing in their ears. Stamped with the earliest energies of the universe, they wished nothing more than to continue as creators themselves. Thus they bent to the task of shaping matter to their will: hammering and heating, bending and blasting. And when matter proved less challenging than they liked, they turned their tools upon themselves, reshaping their minds and reforging their spirits until they had become beings of great endurance. Reality itself became the ultimate object of their smithing. Yet, along the way, they sometimes erred. In cases of great ambition, mistakes are unavoidable.

The one we know as the Elder Titan was a great innovator, one who studied at the forge of creation. In honing his skills, he shattered something that could never be repaired, only thrown aside. He fell into his own broken world, a shattered soul himself. There he dwelt among the jagged shards and fissured planes, along with other lost fragments that had sifted down through the cracks in the early universe. And this is why the world we know resembles an isle of castaways, survivors of a wreck now long forgotten. Forgotten, that is, by all but the One who blames himself. He spends his time forever seeking a way to accomplish the repairs, that he might rejoin the parts of his broken soul, that we and the world alike might all be mended. This is the One we know as Elder Titan. “

Voicework

Elder Titan is voiced by Jim French, famous for Bill in the Left 4 Dead series and Father Grigori in the Half-Life series. This is the first voice work Jim has done for Dota 2.

“Never in all the world’s making and remaking have I witnessed an outcome that was more unequivocally in the bag.”

UI Updates

The community page has been completely reworked with the new Guild system on the horizon more room has been made to fit everything onto one page.

Community UI

The community UI is now broken into three sections, the first section is for the upcoming Guild system that has yet to be released.

Dota2_UI_Teams01

The next section is for the existing team system, allowing you to create, edit and manage your team.

Dota2_UI_Teams02

It is now possible to rename your team so no more unnecessary disbanding!

Dota2_UI_Teams04

 

The “Pro Team List” browser also has its own page, sorted in the order of their most recent game.

Dota2_UI_Teams03

And finally the last section allows tournament admins to manage their league pass games, I’ll grab you some screenshots of this later.

Workshop UI

The Workshop has also had another small update, the model preview buttons have now been updated with new icons and tooltips.

Dota2_UI_Workshop01

The Workshop importer also has support for custom Lycanthrope wolves model now.

    for god’s sake stop asking for techies every single week, Seems you are pretty retarded asking for a useless heroe, who had only a concept art…

    • Wss

      Stfu you filthy piece of shit.

  • husofant

    elder titan so badass!!!!!!

  • The rapist tako

    more like legion commander with that tease in ET’s splash artwork

  • assadas

    abaddon? why elder titan artwork have legion commander on background then?

  • IzuaL

    look the new publication of elder titan wallpaper ….. is legion commander which lies behind?

  • Kahmu

    Nice work again! But I was hoping for some more updates to Abbadon, Legion Commander and whatever hero they’re working on next (maybe Pit Lord?)

    And I laughed at the Abbadon GIF :D a bad don – didn’t see that one coming!

      shut the fuck up you cancer

  • Kahmu

    Can anyone guess what that thing beneath Elder Titans left hand is? It doesn’t look like what I’ve seen from Legion Commander so far, so maybe Abaddon next week? <3

      I think the human figure is Legion Commander. The other makes me think of Earth Shaker cause it kinda looks like ES’s totem on it. Maybe they will redo his textures like Vengeful.

      When you see the full picture (http://media.steampowered.com/apps/dota2/images/blogfiles/keyart_eldr_ttn.jpg) you can see its like a caravan, perhaps Legionnaires and in the front its Legion Commander :D

    Nevermind me, I’ve found a full sized picture of this. Turns out the object I was referring to was a rock, but in the bottom right corner you can see… LEGION COMMANDER! Yeah! :D

    • http://www.facebook.com/sohratus Şöhrat Annayev

      not only legion commander. here also abaddon. right just elder titans hand. man on a horse

      • http://www.facebook.com/qisoft Кеша Шушпанов

        why abaddon? why not pitlord?

  • Wobbly H

    Legion Commander is next, by the way. You can see her in Elder Titan’s artwork splash.

    I’m eternally grateful that Elder Titan turned out to be way better than I expected, for last week’s art design wasn’t at all my feel.

  • Jojo

    scroll over the GIF at the end to get a clue. read carefully !!

  • http://www.facebook.com/daniellorenzo.lambino Daniel Lorenzo Lambino

    +1 for Cyborgmatt’s Abaddon joke.

  • http://www.facebook.com/daniellorenzo.lambino Daniel Lorenzo Lambino

    lol. all those ppl who keep complaining about human face finally became quiet, at least some of them.
    stop thinking that the models of the new heroes you see here are the final one or the one that’s gonna be released in the game coz sometimes they still are working on it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/douglaz.machado Douglaz Machado

    THAT Titan I’ve tried just to see how he works etc and I’ve to say the art of his skillz are awsm! shame I dont use to play tankers :X …And finally some decent mirana mount! I hope Valve release all these cosmetics soon. I’m already trading to be able to get ‘em all :D

  • Zappa

    That’s Legion Commander’s Duel.

  • Techies

    Go fuck your selves haters, Techies will not come last, WW and Zet and whoever gets in in 6.78 will be the last heroes.
    Also, Techies are in -cm
    SO
    GO
    FUCK
    YOUR
    SELVES

  • swagnus

    they have legion commander in titans flash art tho, so i think its lc next

  • Filip arrdal

    That’s obviously techies ult mine

  • http://www.facebook.com/hunter.cougar.1 Cougar Hunter

    I wish Valve released the “Old Man Face” version of Elder Titan just to troll the fans then update it the following maintenance to the better version LoLz

  • Albert L.

    Valve, much respect with the Elder Titan design. But having the eye ball that look like a human feels awkward. Like a human wearing a goat face of some sort. How about having the eye just black? That’d be good init?

  • http://twitter.com/LeonaLaLuna Leon

    I love Timbersaw’s new line about him facing fear. Can’t believe nobody brought that up sooner.

    • Shrivedh Singh

      It’s too long. When would you ever hear that whole thing without issuing an order that would interrupt it 2 seconds in?

  • anno

    Dat new Centaur’s helm…..Shao Kahn? Is that you?

  • St3ve

    but what about tech….just kidding. I kinda like that ET model.
    Its awesome to crack the whole lane into pieces! :D

    And obviously female LC in the next Patch.
    Legion Commander…just perfect to Bitchslap that other fem. Chars xD

    Bugged as hell, laggy as 56k internet, lots of work done on the important stuff though like those smashing new sets. At least now we can have horrible games with nice cosmetics.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000965148872 ‘Ploutonas Pankratios

      i agree

  • jerry delcano

    next hero is legion commander. i’m assuming because she’s on the bottom right of elder titans key art.

  • Guest

    It was obvious what the hero next to Elder titan in the picture was.

  • Rift

    Next hero to be released, clearly.

    • Cider

      Taking Abbadon’s design in a radically new direction.

  • Shrivedh Singh

    Is it just me, or do Lina and Mirana’s breast size increase with every new cosmetic set :/

  • Daryl Dizon

    Legion Commander is next, whoooooo!!!! because the snake is trying to hypnotize the boy in to doing something at the snake’s will, like the duel of legion commander…. whooo!!!!

  • HeLiOn

    C’moooon Abbadon next!

  • HisBushisnessKingGeorge

    There is Legion Commander in the lower right corner of ET’s splash art. IIRC Valve only hid heroes in arts only when they were going to be released next week.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ilhuicahuatlalticpaque Cuauhtemoc Ilhuicamina

    the next hero will be Legion Commander. You can see him the splash image of Elder Titan. In the backround, to the right.
