          No hero?
          what the fuck?
          Why we don't stop trolls?
          If you see a player feeding, abusing skills or talking garbage just ignore him and soon he will fall in his own trap.

          Ignore trolls make the dota 2 community a better game.

              I have read through every single one of these changes and find them all most impressive and this is my extremely detailed response reply to everything I have just read. This appears to be a well constructed patchlog that will possibly have some repercussions on the metagame with the bug fixes, while new content is greatly appreciated. I hope that the changes we see will be swiftly debugged and added to the main client after what minimal time is needed for critical solving. I hope this has proven to be a very insightful commentary. Oh and as always, good job bot guy!
