    greetings.

    recently there were found 2 unusual couriers in dota that have colours that are impossible to obtain.
    we are aware of the situation with pre-patch unusuals that had their colour code randomly generated but this is not the case.
    that 2 colours have artificial origin.

    1. Unusual Imp with Felicity's Blessing effect. Colour: 255, 105, 180 (note that this is an exact 'Hot Pink' rgb colour code name: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0c6j05zd2)
    Picture with colour code & item ID: [ATTACH]10360[/ATTACH]

    This colour is not one from 10 colour scheme and it is not pre-patch due to the fact that imps were introduced to the game only aftec colour patch. And yes - code is straight rgb Hot Pink.

    2. Unusual Frog with Sunfire effect. Colour: 255, 0, 255 (note that this is an exact 'Magenta' rgb colour code name: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0c6j05zd2)
    Picture with colour code & item ID: [ATTACH]10359[/ATTACH]

    This effect has only 255, 255, 255 colour code. It can be customized by paint but it does not affect the effect. Still there is no pure rgb Magenta (255, 0, 255) paint in the game.

    Main problem:

    Dota has its own unique economy. The most valuable items in game at the moment are unusuals with Felicity's Blessing or Ethereal Flames effects with pre-patch unique colours. For example Pink Felicity's Blessing Wardog was recently sold for $600: http://www.playdota.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1117500

    Summary:

    Such artificial unusual couriers:

    * are ruining dota economy;
    * giving ungrounded advantage to their owners;
    * 90% were obtained in the unfair way.

    I have much more information regarding this issue but cannot disclose it to the public since this may lead to more system exploits before this gets fixed.
    Therefore I am asking administration staff to contact me via forum PM or steam.

    Artificial unusual courier owners:

    1. Hot Pink Imp: ϟĦﬦ††Λ, http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198010008513
    2. Magenta Frog: Hooke's Lawl, http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198032531094

    Representing all unusual courier traders and owners (especially those who understand prices and paid for it with real money) I am asking for that couriers to be deleted from the game or replaced with regular ones. And upon investigation if their owners turn out to be guilty - give them appropriate punishment.

    If you have any proofs, PM me.

    Until then, closed.
