“Separated from his flock in an ice storm, the adventurous young pengling Scotty wandered the Blueheart Glacier, starving and alone, until he found himself rescued by a certain young Ice Maiden. Crystal Maiden nursed him back to health with love and fishy treats. Swearing to return her kindness, Scotty swore off adventuring, and now he has no urge other than to carry supplies and treats to those in need.

Server Functions and Messages

Dipping a toe into the land of unreleased we can see a large number of references to the new Holdout gamemode, new NPC units and more.

Holdout Messages

Exploring the functions and messages related to the unreleased Holdout gamemode has unveiled a number new units, items and notifications.

We have multiple messages that refer to Holdout Walls and Towers either being finished or destroyed as well as chat notification strings for these events.

#DOTA_Holdout_Wall_Destroyed
#DOTA_Holdout_Wall_Finished
#DOTA_Holdout_Tower_Destroyed

\n”CHAT_MESSAGE_HOLDOUT_TOWER_DESTROYED”
\n”CHAT_MESSAGE_HOLDOUT_WALL_DESTROYED”
\n”CHAT_MESSAGE_HOLDOUT_WALL_FINISHED”

We also have a number of different NPC units for a range of towers suggesting that certain towers will have different functionality, such as a light tower that attacks faster than a normal tower but is weaker in overall health.

CDOTA_BaseNPC_HoldoutTower
CDOTA_BaseNPC_HoldoutTower_LightFast
CDOTA_BaseNPC_HoldoutTower_HeavySlow
CDOTA_BaseNPC_HoldoutTower_ReduceSpeed

We have more strings that reference it being a round based gamemode (possibly with quests during each round) with a certain amount of prep time set between each round.

#DOTA_Quest_Holdout_Round
#DOTA_Quest_Holdout_Round_Subtext
#DOTA_Quest_Holdout_PrepTime

We can also see that some of the network messages refer to the amount of prep time left, the wave’s total enemy count and the current enemy count along with the number of rounds/current round number as well.

‘m_flPrepTimeLeft’
‘m_nWaveEnemyCount’
‘m_nCurrentEnemyCount’
‘m_nNumberOfRounds’
‘m_nRoundNumber’

There are also references to “Champion” NPCs who may possibly be helping you out on this adventure.

‘ChampionNPCName’
‘WaitForUnit’
‘GroupWithUnit’
‘ChampionChance’
‘ChampionLevel’
‘ChampionMax’

References to Bonus Time and Bonus Rounds.

‘BonusTime’
‘BonusRound’

The total Gold and XP earned during that round will be displayed at the end along with any extra rewards.

‘reward_gold_per_player’
‘Total Gold from Round %d: %d’
‘Total XP from Round %d: %d’

A couple of unreleased new items a Bag of Gold and a Greater Clarity potion.

‘item_bag_of_gold’
‘item_greater_clarity’
‘modifier_greater_clarity’

We also have references to upgradable Mortars and Barricades. The Mortar upgrade gives it a bonus to its damage with each upgrade. The Barricade gains more HP and Armour when upgraded.

‘item_upgraded_mortar’
‘modifier_upgraded_mortar’
‘bonus_per_upgrade’

‘item_upgraded_barricade’
‘modifier_upgraded_barricade’
‘hp_bonus_per_upgrade’
‘armor_bonus_per_upgrade’

Unknown Unreleased Units

We also have references to a number of new, unreleased NPC units.

Lesser Nightcrawler

The Lesser Nightcrawler is based off Slark and will have an attack similar to Slark’s Pounce.

‘lesser_nightcrawler_pounce’
‘modifier_lesser_nightcrawler_pounce’

Zombie Beserk

When Berserk is activated by the Zombie Beserk it gains increased attack speed and movement speed.

‘zombie_berserk’
‘modifier_zombie_berserk’
‘berserk_duration’
‘berserk_bonus_attack_speed’
‘berserk_bonus_movement_speed’

Corpselord

The Corpselord unit revives units in a specific radius around itself, revive on a tick interval with a certain amount of ticks required before the unit in the radius is revived.

‘corpselord_revive’
‘modifier_corpselord_revive’
‘tick_interval’
‘ticks_to_revive’
‘radius’

Slithereen

Previously referenced in the holdout script config file the Slithereen has a Rip Tide ability based off of Naga Siren’s Rip Tide.

‘slithereen_riptide’
‘modifier_naga_siren_riptide’

Mini Rosh

Mini Rosh has a fire ability.

‘mini_rosh_fire’

NPC_Creature

Another big chunk of code is dedicated to a new NPC_Creature that levels up and has a large number of AI functions which allow it to be pretty dependant such has Escorting, keeping a specific Roam Distance and Helping others escape etc.

‘npc_dota_creature’
‘CDOTA_BaseNPC_Creature’
‘Level the creature up by the specified number of levels’
‘CreatureLevelUp’
‘Creature’
‘CanRespawn’
‘Aggression’
‘Avoidance’
‘RoamDistance’
‘DefaultState’
‘Escort’
‘PermanentDesire’
‘HPGain’
‘ManaGain’
‘HPRegenGain’
‘ManaRegen’
‘DamageGain’
‘ArmorGain’
‘MagicResistGain’
‘AttackTimeGain’
‘MoveSpeedGain’
‘BountyGain’
‘XPGain’
‘BuildingAggressive’
‘OffensiveAbilities’
‘Debuff’
‘Stun’
‘AOE’
‘MinimumTargets’
‘DefensiveAbilities’
‘Buff’
‘UseSelfishly’
‘UseAtHealthPercent’
‘nMinimumTargets’
‘EscapeAbilities’
‘CanHelpOthersEscape’

The creature also appears to have its own Fire Breath attack.

‘creature_fire_breath’
‘rotation_angle’
‘projectile_count’

Custom Script Files

Expanding on the default script files we now have references to a number of different sets of script files. The script files control most of the functionality of the game, for instance every hero, ability, unit and item is mapped out in the files and can allow for easy modifications to any hero, unit, ability or item.

The default script files:

‘scripts/npc/npc_heroes.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_units.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_abilities.txt’
‘scripts/npc/items.txt’

The balanced staging version of the script files that can used for tournaments instead of the latest files:

‘scripts/npc/npc_heroes_staging.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_units_staging.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_abilities_staging.txt’
‘scripts/npc/items_staging.txt’

A new “experimental” set of script files, most likely for testing purposes.

‘scripts/npc/npc_heroes_experimental.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_units_experimental.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_abilities_experimental.txt’
‘scripts/npc/items_experimental.txt’

A very interesting set of script files which will allow you to make changes without affecting the default files.

‘scripts/npc/npc_heroes_custom.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_units_custom.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_abilities_custom.txt’
‘scripts/npc/npc_items_custom.txt’

Custom Heroes & Hero List

To top it off we also have support for complete modification to the active hero list and overall heroes list.

‘scripts/npc/activelist.txt’
‘CustomHeroList’
‘scripts/npc/herolist.txt’
‘CustomHeroes’

World Map Custom

The populated tutorial maps you current see on the World Map are defined in the World_Map.txt script file. The support for a custom World Map file and last week’s unreleased UI update would suggest that could possibly be the home for custom gamemodes potentially allowing for the unlocking of maps in a specific order etc like the current tutorial system is setup.

‘scripts/world_map.txt’
‘scripts/world_map_staging.txt’
‘scripts/world_map_custom.txt’

Predictions For The Next Hero

The only good non-human is a dead non-human.

    volvo pls

  • Ajesshh Brainless

    make morph attack using both hand for god’s sake -_-

  • Vish

    that holdout mode sounds a lot like tower defense to me

    • kamkaskan

      IMO it will be a defense of the Ancients.

  • jaffa

    That courier is garbage and so low quality ..

    • Joke Triple

      Gotta agree. I can’t even tell if its eyes are animated or not… It looks like a super low quality textured on eye, so it’s got me questioning it.

    • Voker

      I think (can’t believe i’m saying this) i prefer Justin Beaver courier… ugh

    • ollololol

      laughed so hard when i saw this courier. you can literally see they need to push out couriers for some events and have time for any quality. its a joke

    • BallsackBludgeoner

      It’s unfit for even Dota 1.

      Mini Pudge shits a more quality turd on that pixelated penguin.

    • bunnyfreakz

      That courier is like bad taxidermy penguin

    • Richard Renyi-Vamos

      To be honest i DONT GIVE A FLYING F*CK about couriers… I want the iconic DOTA 1 heroes imported!!! :-D
      Where is TECHIES after 2 years??? Legion Commander? Ember Spirit? Earth Spirit? Oracle? And the others? Dear Valve, no more hats please before the original hero ports… I generally love DOTA and Valve too, but Blizzard All-Stars is coming out soon (with a lot of people leaving for that, most probably), and DOTA 2 has not imported all the heroes even after 2 years.

      • lol

        A lot of people leaving for that? Go kill yourself, that is going to fail so hard, and sto[ fuickginw whining about new heroes, i’d rather have the current heroes and gameplay fixed than having new bugged heroes.

        • Richard Renyi-Vamos

          Thanks for the idiotic answer Lol… :-) Well, from a pure market viewpoint a lot of people will choose THAT game over this, and other similar ones (League Of Legends, HON, and so on). So STFU, and stop making stupid replies, thanks.

          • Srsly kid

            “from a pure market viewpoint” :)) u giving us a pure market viewpoint = world is gonna end soon.
            LoL is for less intellect people. it fits you well ;) gl

      • RDx

        Terrorblade man………..fuck the new 6.78 heroes….atleast they should get the old ones

        • EnergyDragon

          Oh, TERRORBLADE, how could I forget him… :-D
          Agreed, missing that one too. Sunder = GG ulti….

          • Fabian R

            Actually sunder doesnt exist anymore…

      • Maakep

        I don’t think heroes will be late because customizations are made. Many of these are from the workshop as well, aren’t they? I don’t think the department getting heroes into the game is the same as hatmakers, do you?

      • Alireza

        Agreed !
        Valve Cant you see What We Want ? We Just Want The Fucking Heroes Not Shitty Hats Just Release THE HEROES !!!

      • Your Lord

        Yeah cause Ember Spirit is the iconic dota 1 hero ofc :))
        who the fuck is going to play SC2 DotA ?! Competitive scene is here all the balanced stuff is here that’s just another HoN LoL. gg wp kiddo

      • Half King Half God

        Pit lord…

  • bobman2

    low quality courier, “there working on stuff you just cant see it!” and hats. I can only PRAY this is not our patch this week.

    • ‘Ploutonas Pankratios

      warcraft 2 had better quality than this shity faking curier

  • Karian L

    Does any one see that custom script files?
    Valve is doing what he promise!

    • bobman2

      more hats?

      • Karian L

        nonono

        That is custom scripts,heroes and world map!

        That is WarCraftⅢ World Editor where DotA born from!

        • kk

          Yeah no they aren’t.
          Sorry but if you’ve made a custom plugin for Dota 2 you’d know- everything they’ve DONE is on a hero to hero basis, some of the spells don’t even work on any hero other than the one they were meant for, Meepo has his OWN UNIQUE LEVELING SYSTEM (WTF IS THIS?), and often times the way they fix glitches breaks other things but you would never notice it unless you were playing customs, from the beginning and even now they never had the intention of making this custom game compatible.
          And why would they? It would make their “Diretide” and every other shitty variant they’ve churned out look like nothing but the complete and utter garbage it is in comparison, and 2012+ Valve is the epitome of Jewish so obviously that goes against their agenda, and they just can’t have that.

    • B|Stuna

      Sorry, all I see is hats. Valve has not shown any work in the last 3 months, it’s disgusting. Never wanted my money back so bad in my life.

  • Joke Triple

    Hope this means new custom maps soon. If they added that alone, you’d see new maps in probably a week. People would probably make different terrain versions of the current map so that it could be faithful to the original dota.

  • SuperMcRad

    I really can’t tell anymore if the majority of the posters here are trolls or over-entitled 13 year olds complaining about cosmetics over heroes. If you are ultimately trolls…. well… well played, you win.

    Why is everyone complaining about this patch when we see they are working on the custom game mode? A new game mode is as good as having a new hero IMO.

    • B|Stuna

      Because no content is being released, just shitty badly finished hats. Take a look at how many players Dota 2 has been losing every day:

      • God of all Gods – Overlord

        I have stopped playing myself, but i am not surprised other people did the same. Fuck halloween shit with another bullshit mode with roshan at the end as always – i am not playing this crap untill they add new hero. Hopefully they will before i forget about this game’s existence.

    • Dumbrass

      The game mode will be available for 2 weeks, then we’ll never play again. An hero, however, will stay forever!

      Unless it’s really a new game mode, and not some halloween event shit, then it might be cool.

      SB doesn’t need a nerf. You just need to pay attention and not go alone. Teamwork is what beats SB, which is why he’s not a big competative pick, and yet eats pubs.

      • Boush

        Not competitive, check the pro games a month ago- they pick sb and destroy everything

        • kamkaskan

          They picked SB only for stun/naix bomb

  • Linus Holmqvist

    I really enjoy reading all these hateful comments like “VOLVO HATS DIE” or “fack U GABEn only wAnt mOny”, it makes me wonder if somewhere out there exists a child so angry over the fact that no new heroes are coming out he completely looses it and kills his parents with a bit of cheese.

    • marblecake

      Fuck off valvedrone. Valve lied too much. There’s people who spent money in the hundreds in this shit. They have every right to complain.

      • Torje Hetty

        Hundreds? I’ve spent thousands… Literally owns everything in the game… Only lack a few rare items.

        I do not even complain… I’m happy of whatever the patch may contain.

        • marblecake

          Then you’re a tool or a lier.

          • Torje Hetty

            1) I can post you my backpack if you like
            2) You’re a “Tool” You have no idea what my education is and what type of work I’m doing… I got too much cash to spare… Thats why I toss it in Dota.
            3) Stop doing hard labour.

          • Toolkit

            It does not matter what your education or work is – you are spineless tool. Keep spending your parent’s money on tool items.

          • Torje Hetty

            Too bad, I don’t live with my parents at all, and I do earn my own money. Apparently you’re so jealious you start to rage… Get over yourself, boy.

      • Linus Holmqvist

        obviously you dont understand that sometimes things change, sometimes you have to put your efforts somewhere else and that may result in delaying certain things. “fixing” a bug is not simply altering a few lines of code, often many hours of testing ensue and sometimes it turns out you have to start all over.

        Also, buying hats, HUDs etc does not give anyone the right to complain, it gives them the right to use said hats in the game, and if they dont like it, they can go play LoL or some other game.

        • B|Stuna

          Actually, Valve has not been delivering any content whatsoever. They already lost 2-4 million unique users and are losing about 200.000 every day. Get your fact straight and start complaining as well before the game dies out completely. (It’s coming pretty soon)

          • Nekros

            and where exactly are you getting these numbers?

          • B|Stuna
          • Nekros

            Have you looked at that graph closely? Look at the last week chart and you’ll see that the dips and rises are a pattern. We’re not losing 200,000 every day there’s just less people playing whenever a “new day” starts.

        • Jonothan

          As person with diploma in program engineering and working as programmer i must say that usually “fixing a bug” is altering a few lines of code. Now to find which lines you need to alter is another story…

      • Ichy87

        So funny. When did they lie to you? People spent money on items and … well they got it. But please go on you are so funny.

        • nigger

          They promised to release the game ONLY after all d1 heroes are ported. Yet they rushed it.
          Kill yourself.

          • Ichy87

            Its really mean something, or not. The difference is release date (2015 or later). I doubt it will speed it up. And the marblecake tell us Valve lied too much. Just one thing that mean nothing. Long live the nigger, lol.

    • God

      “over the fact that no OLD heroes THAT EXISTED FOR YEARS are coming”
      Fixed it for you. Now stop licking volvo’s butthole and understand that they PROMISED to port all heroes before release and they LIED. It does not matter if things change or not, people have RIGHT TO BE UPSET IF SOMEONE LIED IN THEIR FACE. And now they throw bullshit hats and hoods , threating customers like garbage that does not deserve a drop of respect.

  • VolvoKnight

    More hats you say? As you can see, Valve is making less hats on D2. While the community workshop is loaded with you know, HATS that forces them to add some to the game.
    I don’t think this is a dead game, Volvo is still making changes in Dota 2′s core. This update is not even all about hats entirely.
    So why rant about having more hats 13-year olds?
    I know the major updates implemented on D2 is getting lesser. But, didn’t you ever think that Volvo has a reason behind? Aside from approving more hats from the workshop? Are Volvo devs robots who goes encoding scripts 24/7, or are they normal people like us who needs rest from work? Who knows?

    • volvococksucker

      7/10

    • B|Stuna

      How about they stop adding hats, freeze the workshop and actually finish the game?

      ROFL! Hey drone, What does Valve’s cum taste like?
      I fucking go to work every day and do fucking something to earn my fucking paycheck, For the last 3 months no fucking bug fixes or heroes, finishing the fucking game doesn’t require 24/7 work you dumb ass fuck, 4 fucking hours a day 5 days a fucking week and we can have a fucking minimum of fucking 2 heroes a month you fucking dumb fuck

        Look at the dates, it’s for Dota 2. They just haven’t updated the api name yet. If you had tried to add “Dota 2″ to the list in order to check it, you would see that there is only “Dota 2 Beta” and “Dota 2 Test”.

  • Valve are fucking jews

    The extent of their week long hard work is a bunch of txt files.
    Please Valve I want more couriers, hats and shitty Halloween minigames to keep me distracted from how there’s no meaningful content whatsoever.

    Oh but at least they dump in a bunch of code strings to make it look like they’re busy. Lots of things behind the scenes :^)

  • Tyr

    month after month passed, no hero release, dis geim so foken ded m8
    R.I.P Doto 2

  • agner

    I anticipate new heroes in diretide

    • B|Stuna

      Keep dreaming… Next hero January 2083, with luck.

  • n0ace

    seriously i’m really thinking to buy a ticket to the netolic pro league… not interested in the tournemant at all but that courrier! DAT puristic STYLE!

  • Cancel++

    Hey matt you forgot to say that omniknight is going to have a remake, look!

    He now has white shoulder armor and improved textures.

    • Michael Cohen

      He’s had that for a while, actually.

  • DunaBird

    5 months without a new hero…..

  • Frank

    gg next 300 mb useless patch
    gg volvo disband only hats dota ded gaem

  • Freezaen

    “Bitches are won on the battlefield.”

    Also, hooray for more feces.

  • russia prevails

    Come on, tell me Valve is working hard on the game itself and the hats are made by the community. The animations prove you wrong!!!!!!11

  • Skraal

    VOLVO IS ALL ABOUT HATS

    THIS YEAR DIRETIDE WILL BE CALLED “DIREHAT”

    PASS THE WORD

  • Joke Triple

    this comments section wreaks of 4chan shitposters

    no joke.

  • Dumbrass

    Fuck me sideways, a penguin courier is a great idea, and they make THIS? THIS PIECE OF SHIT? REALLY? I hope Valve adds another penguin courier someday.

    • Nekros

      get Snowl. Closest thign you’ll get to a good penguin

  • DedGaem

    League gets another 15 champions we get zero heroes T__________T

  • Seacow1g

    I’m sorry but Valve is not doing anything to maintain my interest as a player. I’ve spent plenty of money on cosmetic items in this game (more than I’ve spent on a number of MMO’s) and am sick of just seeing more and more of them week after week. I’ve personally logged a number of bugs in the past year which have still not be addressed and waiting 4-5 months for each new hero is plainly unacceptable. I have heroes that I used to play in Dota 1 that I still can’t play in Dota 2 even though Dota 2 has been in development for many years now and it’s ridiculous. It’s no surprise the numbers of people playing the game has decreased dramatically. I personally have not touched the game in over a month and don’t intend to do so until I see some honest work on Valves’ part. Whether it be through significant bug fixes, hero releases or balance changes. I want to see Valve working on things that actually MATTER before I decide to play again. You can release all the hats you want but i’m not buying anymore of them until you actually get me playing the game again. There’s plenty of other MOBA’s out there that are doing a much better job lately with their games than you.

  • Turvius

    put all those people who made these ugly sets working on the heroes!
    … and the world shall be happier

  • Duke

    So this week is almost like last week, another 300MB of “hats” i can see where this is going. If all the patches do nothing but contain cosmetics this game really needs an option to turn that bullsht off. I dont want to download 300 MB just to see some new “hats” -.-

  • seridio

    i like that shittypenguin courier, but they have fix the textures and shit

  • xXx420BLAZiT#YOLOxXx

    DED GAEM VOLVO DISBAND

  • notevenmad

    /vg/ pls go

    • suckmydick

      get fucked by your cancerous “doge” faggot

      • notevenmad

        Seeing as how you’re a bitter neckbeard who calls things he dosen’t like “cancerous,” you should be the one fucking a dog right about now.

        • suckmydick

          Assuming I’m a neckbeard. Your cancer is in plain sight though.
          get fucked

  • /vg/gohome

    maybe if /vg/ actually try and talk to valve instead of only commenting about it like the shadow fiend pickers they are. FUK VOLVO DED GAM EUHEHUEHEUE HOW VOLV CUM TASTE LE HAPPY MERCHANT.

    • fuckyou

      Talk to VOLOVO? They fucking lock any threads on their shitty dev forum although the threads are legitimate complains and suggestions. One of the faggot mods or whatever told something about “breaking the meta” if they include new hero. Including hero from the early times of dota who was already balanced against the other is breaking the meta? FUCK YOU DRONE GO SUCK MORE COCK

  • Gaben Quest

    Pretty low-quality updates… Even so, the greasy lil’ entitled adolescents need to stop QQ’ing about Free2Play items… It’s a free game you douches. How else are they supposed to monetize the content and continue to operate? Are you seriously that dense? If this news disturbs you, discontinue searching it out. Jesus christ.

    • Jesus Christ

      What my child?

      By the way, valve developers will go to hell if they do not start to make heroes.

  • simz

    what is upgrade and unreleased npc again?

  • gMilk

    No Sven sword? Valvo pls it is unacceptable Kappa

  • simz

    DOTA 2 DOUBLE KILL UPDATE SEEMS LEGIT!!
    BEWARE GUYS!

  • Zlatko Mijokovic

    If valve doesn´t fucking shape up and fixes the number one problem with dota right now I will quit and I know ALOT of people feel the same way. We who play and speak english should not be paired with Russians and anyone else who is not capable of speaking english. And an equally big problem is the fucking useless matchmaking… I get paired with people who just started dota and I have 700+ games played… THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN!!!!

    • Jake

      Your name suggests that you are Russian, Ukranian, or some eastern european descent, however you probably live in the U.S. If you lived in Ukraine, I would say, ya, that’s why you get picked with russians and noobs….

  • borgri

    wut? kunkka became captain stukov? lol

  • fuckingdrones

    2GB of nothing but hats since abaddon who isn’t anything special design like. They just let nyx an CK fuck and he was the result. DOTO is in full TF2 mode. Expect only hats and shitty uninspired designs if they decide to port a hero once in 6 months. Volvo got lazy as usual and only wants you jewgold, drones. Keep sucking that valve cock.
    inb4 hurr durr free gaem why complain eksdeee
    Valve saw the profit in it. When you do something you do it properly until the end. There’s enough examples out there. You’re the problem with quality going to shit because you’d eat everything and VOLVO see this and put no effort. Fuck you drones I hope all of you choke on that fat valve cock.

    • Zet

      OK, I know why you and many others are frustrated with valve’s lack of output. I shake my fist at gaben every week when we don’t have arc warden, but I don’t get too upset.

      Valve is a billion dollar corporation working on multiple projects at once. Steam, left 4 dead/source2/SteamOS don’t allow for development speeds like those at Riot/S2. Valve’s own internal structure dosen’t really allow for fast development speeds on ANYTHING AT ALL. They don’t make an annualized formulaic thing such as CoD/BF etc.

      hopefully you and your /vg/ pals can respond without an ad-hominem calling me a valvedrone who sucks gabe’s dick. Also, pls volv add zet

      • fuckingdrones

        It’s fucking 3+ months. There’s no excuse. Also volvo is notoriously lazy.

  • Monkeyyy

    That creature updates are for halloween event?

    valv pls add arc warden i will buy all hat for him pls just add favorite lightining dog doto

  • Gino

    I dunno if its just me but I think having the hud skins to be able to share in game defeats the purpose of buying one, because I think its unfair for the people who bought it

    They’ve done a good work with L4D2, TF2 support. Full suck mode with dota2

  • VoiceOfThePeople

    I would have rather just paid for the fucking game so they could not use this FTP bullshit excuse and maybe there would be less of these GAY cosmetics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • WhoBuysCosmetics??

      Who even buys these over priced and pointless cometics!???

  • GOD

    DIRE TIDE!!!

  • Tyler

    Who’s in charge of quality control on this shit? Those void items are low poly and have bad textures, and that penguin… THAT PENGUIN!
