    For me ALL heroes are without facial animations for a long time now, was fine before Reborn.
    Is there anything to fix this? Why is it not working?

    It's not a matter of being lazy, it's a matter of having priorities that decide what you do with your time, and broken facial expressions on the portraits of Dota2 heroes being low on that priority list.

    C'mon, they clearly got other priorities.

    Yeah.

    Anyhoo, I'm just glad they're fully fixed now!:

    'Twas honorably done, indeed! Thank you so much, Valve!

    Update 5 on the test client seems to have fixed the dead stare.

    Time to celebrate!

    Now all they need to fix is particle effects breaking in portraits (like Lina's).

    You know, I just saw a little while ago on Reddit a brief topic about this (clicking on it showed a HUD picture of Invoker talking with a sinister smile)!

    Too bad about the Dead Stare bug, but this is DEFINITELY an improvement, and I'm glad that it has come before the engine change as we were speculating. Thank you, Valve, here's hoping it's fully fixed when the New Bloom update goes live on the Main Client! ^_^

    Tusk: "Bump Punch!"

    Just wanted to say that Tusk is not affected by the Dead Stare bug.

    Don't know how to repro it, but when it happened, it was during a Killed By screen.
    As I've said in an earlier post, I've had a case where I was killed by Vengeful Spirit, and her mouth gaped open after she talked in the Killed By portrait. (I should have took a picture of it, BTW, but I didn't.)

    I doubt they'll fix it before Source 2, they've already delayed more high-profile Dota2 updates because of it (Frostivus, proper particle support). Occasionally, facial expressions have already been bugging out before this, so maybe they'll take the opportunity to revise it from scratch.

    Looks like Source 2 features won't be in place for New Bloom (they could have allowed particles in submissions if that was the case), but they'll probably want it for TI5, so I'd look out for a fix between those two dates.
    Yeah, I agree.

    Still broken for what 5 months? The problem happens when you select other unit/hero, until then your portrait works fine but once you select anything else it breaks.
