    This backpack is not OK since it looks like something a German tourist would take with him while on a hiking trip. Looks too modern and not at all "shamany"

    Just because it looks "Russian", does it really mean Kunkka can't wear it? Bitch please. It's practical for a sailor and actually looks good on him. And it's not like half of the world right now uses this design for warm and cozy hats. There is no Russia in Dota (one could argue about this, since Russians dominate the EU servers), therefore this is NOT a "Russian hat". It's a warm, practical hat, that is made out of natural materials.

    Sure, it looks a bit silly, but this helmet makes more sense than ~50% of Furions cosmetics that are already in the game. And its not like he's wielding a wooden penis (one can easily make a penis shaped staff out of wooden branch and there are no arguments why it could not be done). The Acorn helmet is actually VERY fitting since it's natural shape is used. Also it is used for it's quality to withstand blows. How can you say that a cosmetic that makes more sense than it is silly has no place in the game?

          Dosn't really mean anything. The outfit for Ursa got put in despite the negativity around it

              I'm fine with more items, but let's have some standards, good items will come over time, we dont need to push in a bunch of crap immediatly

                Just give us the option to mirror items we equip to all heroes in game. Even if I'm not playing with a hero my items will be on him and all this would be solved. You will never see items you don't want to see and everyone will be happy (apart from people who get items to impress others which is a stupid reason to get them anyway imo)
                Work in progress, feedback appreciated

                      Hahaha, I just lol'ed hard with your post sir. Indeed there are now a ton of items that unfit their represented heroes, and as the OP said, many have low quality. The quality bar for items should be raised and IMO, we should have a better chance on receiving good items when lvling up. I'm srsly done of lvling up and receiving Gondar, Bloodseeker or PL common items all over again.

                        I'm fine with that since we even get free cosmetics at all in a free to play game is insane to begin with

                          And what I see from about 50% of the items, the quality is awful. Some barely even have textures on them, just a color on a the surface of the items, some look really spikey or "blocky" for a lack of a better word, and some just dont even fit (literally) on the character, like lone druid and the bear head, it isnt even on his shoulder, but hovering over it.

                          Honestly, if you are going to bring a bunch of cosmetics into Dota2 from other people instead of yourself, can you PLEASE set some standards? Good quality items will come, there are some really nice ones in there, why not pick those, leave the others, and wait until someone makes something that looks actually like it was put some effort into.

                          I hate to sound like someone that is raging here but this will seriously affect my enjoyment of the game seeing ugly looking textured stuff all over the heroes

                          PA has a shadowguard helmet that has an orange tint over it, which dosnt even fit with her color scheme

                          For some of the biggest offenders with horrible textures, check out Juggernauts new swords there. Good god, you can clearly see the quality apart from the bad ones.

                          I just.. I mean, I know valve needs to make money, and I am fine with the cosmetics stuff but I had hoped Valve would put some effort into screening this thing and not just let everything just flood in.

                          Am I over reacting here? Should we just let this become TF2 again, or LoL where they got skins that dont even fit the hero's theme?


                          EDIT: Reddit also agrees http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/commen...ality_control/
                          fuck off cry baby. If you don't like you should downvote that's items on steam workshop and not make complain on this forum. Its wrong place for you and dota 2 not belong to you but community. You don't have rights to make force what do you want
                          Its very idiot to quit play dota 2/TF2 if only problem with comestic items

                              Well, feel free to disagree but I wish you'd do it in a better way :-/ Kind of hard to take you seriously talking like that

                                +1, even the texturing on most of the items isn't up to standard in my opinion. Agree with the above, some arb. items, not at all fitting to certain heroes as shown above.
