    Ogre Magi's portrait has both heads talking at the same time whereas the audio has one head talking. Same with Alchemist. Something's really weird.

        New Oracle update does not make mention of this bug, so I can assume it still exists.

            A little oddity perhaps: 2014-11-19_231556.jpg

            I tested the new arcana on the test client and noticed that the ingame model in showcase view uses laugh flexes while the model used for the portrait does not. That one just seems to open and close its mouth like it was talking.

            She's one of the heroes that doesn't gain a completely dead stare without blinking if you look at a different hero's portrait and back to hers.

                @ Mark Bentusi: I think I may have noticed that before long ago with Lina's Taunt...her face still moves like expected. Also, I was gonna say that Phantom Assassin isn't affected by the Dead Stare Bug, but you beat me to it! (I can confirm the glitchy mouth in her portrait that was mentioned earlier this thread, though).

                @ herrshaun: I noticed that when I played a little while ago! Very disappointing!

                BTW, does Oracle have facial expressions?

                  Oracle at least has some blinking that also stops if you switch to another portrait. So since he appears to be broken, I can't tell whether he's supposed to have more facial expressions or he's otherwise working as intended.

                  The game's pretty buggy right now, from glitched gems and cosmetics to constant crashes on the Mac version and Valve hasn't fixed any of it in smaller updates or taken the opportunity to roll out a whole bunch of fixes with this recent bigger update. Might mean they have a big comprehensive bugfix patch coming up, or an official release of the Source 2 client that could also tie up lose ends.

                  Now that a lot of stocked content has been shipped (TI4 stretchgoals, Oracle) would definitely be a good opportunity to start fixing stuff without worrying that the next content patch around the corner is gonna break everything again.

                    I see, thanks!

                    Yeah, let's hope so!

                      Starting to think we need to make a Reddit post for devs to notice...

                        Still a problem with Ogre Magi. Also happens to Alchemist and possibly Jakiro.

                          The subreddit has impact on Valve's priority because a thread on its frontpage reflects that certain problem has a way-above-average impact on the userbase, which makes fixing it a priority. That doesn't mean Valve is oblivious to all the other problems, they just aren't prioritized.

                          And frankly I don't see why fixing this glitch, which is just an annoyance, should take priority.

                            *BUMP*

                            I dusted off "Dota 2" a little while ago (because I saw the composition of the teams in the "Dota 2" screenshot in the Steam Broadcasting announcement ), and I'd like to say that I can further confirm that facial expressions still work as they should on the actual characters on the map, as I happily discovered with Skywrath Mage (if you look closely at his in-game model in these shots, he's still smiling like he also used to in the HUD portrait when thanking someone):
                            2014-12-02_00003.jpg2014-12-02_00004.jpg2014-12-02_00012.jpg2014-12-02_00026.jpg2014-12-02_00051.jpg
                            Furthermore, triggering the Dead Stare bug doesn't affect the Heroes on the battlefield, which the last shot above actually demonstrates.

                            Sooo, the problem lies in the portrait renderings?

                            BTW, I do realize that there are far more important problems to fix, but I do hope they get to this eventually, at least!

                            At least I can take comfort in knowing that even though the Heroes are stoic in their HUD portraits, they aren't on the battlefield! ^_^

                              I noticed when playing against bots recently that facial expressions sometimes work in the "this player just killed you" window, but not in the normal selection UI.

                              Luna has been expressionless forever for me so I was amazed to see that she had expressions! ... or is supposed to.

                                Do you mean actual expressions, or simply not Dead Staring?
