  • Themed maps should be compatible with normal map

    http://store.steampowered.com/news/12099/

    * Ranked matchmaking will always use the classic map. (This is to minimize fragmentation of the matchmaking pool)

    This implies that everyone in a game must use the same map. I don't see why this is necessary. The themed and normal maps should contain all of the same terrain, trees etc, in the same places. The server shouldn't care which is used by the client. The only difference should be in client-side aesthetics.

    Perhaps it's too late to make the Winter map perfectly compatible with the Default, but I hope this can be kept in mind in the future, if any other themed maps arise...

    The new asian themed map needs to be optional, you cannot disable it at the moment. All these themed maps make old computers like mine lag very hard,
    even with the lowest quality settings. Not touching Dota2 until this is fixed.
