    You can't compare it with any other cosmetics, since there's no other Arcana itens, and it's the 1st time a cosmetic changes an Map Icon. It coulda have been like this from the start (with Cliendside-Only icon) since is not stated on the Arcana item page.

    He bought something expecting it to function like every other cosmetic in the game. It no longer does.

    Why are you defending that?

    edit: @ Wootman: Then support him in asking for something fairer. The solution to an unfair EULA is not to go "lol sux but dat's life", it's to try and get it improved.

      A proper analogy would be, imagine you bought a collector's edition DVD of Kick Ass that came with custom cover art. Your friends can no longer see the custom cover art.

      The end result? Nobody gives a shit because they can still see the rest of the collector content.

        Tell me more about how we have this thread as a result of nobody giving a shit. The entire point of the Arcana thing was that it's not just a model change, it's minimap / icon / particles. Making it so people can't see some of those totally defeats the point of the item existing in the first place.

          Except it does function like every other cosmetic? What don't you understand about the minimap icon? You're arguing over this "Minimap hero icon". Which says nothing about a visual change made for the buyer versus someone who doesn't own it. Unless they changed every other feature listed on that Lina set which they didn't. Hence, it functions like every other cosmetic.

          It's simple really.

            I wouldn't have bought it if it was clientsided, I already have the other two hairs for Lina.
            If we allow valve to do this, the next step will be making the skill icons, the effects and the portrait clientsided too.
            It's not just about the map icon but the direction this is taking.

              Making such a big deal out of something so trivial? Yeah. I'd say you're a nobody.

                You're hilariously melodramatic.

                  "If we allow Valve to do this"

                  You're allowing them to make you an entire game. You're free to go play something else if you don't like their decisions.

                      Slippery slope fallacy, argument invalid. Also, it's already been stated you can just contact customer support and ask for a refund, they'll probably give it to you. I mean, if having other people not being able to see your super speshul snowflake mini-map icon is so important to you.

                        The amount of idiocy in this thread is ridiculous.

                        Other people seeing the icon shouldn't matter since 1) There's an option to completely remove face icons, thus making your item icon completely irrelevant to half the players anyways, (and you'll have no way of knowing if it affects them or not in the first place) and 2) The possibility of the icon confusing people outweighs the possibility of them not being affected. If it were up to me I'd remove the hero portrait being shown to others as well.

                              I have to agree it should change the minimap icon for everyone not just the buyer. Personally I would only buy the thing if it changed it for everyone, not sure why they changed it.

                                They changed it because of the terrible amount of jelly people that can't afford it whining on the forums over and over.
