    Where is my precious sexy nightly panther called Nova?
    What is that bulky stupid brutal lion thing?
    "Necrophos" is retarded as hell and so is his new voice.
    And the stupid useless "Stone Sucker" is fucking everyone's brain with his stupid stones.
    I have one word left for what you are doing with my precious DotA: Horrible...
    HAHAHAHAH
    This! these things make my day
    full of nonsense "My precious Alleria"

    as I said is ironic to see such anger for silly things like characters name, and see any reaction from the community about mischaracterization

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVAH. NOOOOOO- Okay I'll stop now.

    I do agree, Nova should be a sleek, sexy panther. Not some overly furry and bulky black lion thing.

    The simplicity of the panther before did not take away from Luna but rather diverted the attention to her. Nova (panther) was colored a darker shade with a purple hue (The lion is light blue of the same shade as Luna), which meant that there was a sense of direction in aesthetic design. Furthermore, the panther contributed a sense of color diversity unlike the Luna+Lion who feels unsaturated and grey.

    Technically they could color the Lion purple, but he still feels bulky and takes more attention from the actual "hero" of the overall design. Besides, a lion is very much uncharacteristic of what is described in Luna's Lore.

    But why am I wasting time typing this? Valve already enabled Luna for the workshop so there's no way we can get the old nova back. It was a good fight Ladies and Gentlemen. Good but very one sided. Let's move on to better things.

    The issue is not about whether Nova with mane or no mane is realistic.

    The issue is about
    1) Being aesthetically pleasing.
    2) Lore - Fitting the Bio and Voicelines
    3) Justifying gameplay mechanics.

    1) Old Nova model had better color diversity. There were real shades of black compared to the new Nova which is just monotonous blue-black. There is very little color contrast and as a whole, Luna looks bland.

    2a) Voicelines part: Its pretty clear, Nova is a girl name. Good girl is a phrase used to describe Nova. (Based on common sense, Lions with manes = male. Lions without manes = female. Again, this is a generalization. There may be exceptions, but its akin to women with beards in real life. Sure there exist such women, but you do not generally associate that as a feminine quality.)
    2b) Bio part: Nightsilver Woods is likely a jungle or a forest. Lions live on plains, steppes etc. Panthers live in jungles, forests, woods etc.

    3) Luna has the fastest starting movespeed. A quality associated with panthers, which are generally associated with speed more so than lions, which are generally associated with dominance/power.


    Again, I like to emphasize on the point that even fantasy is anchored somewhat on reality and the experiences we get from reality.
    Sure in fantasy, we can have whatever we want, but anything ever deviating from reality is usually accompanied with reasons, justifications and setting.
    Gyrocopter might defy the laws of physics in our world, but perhaps Gyrocopter's machine is powered by magic partly too?
    Batrider's bat does not breathe fire, however, Batrider's bat is extremely large. This is not hard to justify since we can have eagles and we can have real giant eagles too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haast's_Eagle

    The fantasy of female lions with manes CAN exist. But just because something CAN exist, does it mean it SHOULD?
    Is it the best representation of the hero?
    A black panther with ties to Dota 1 heritage and 2012 Dota 2 heritage; is more associated with feminine qualities; is more agile and nimble; has more ties to reality
    SHOULD be more preferred over a bluish-black lion with a mane that clips into the ground and front paws?

    No?
    ^This. The new nova feels monotone.

    I'm not choosing the appropriate details, so I'm quoting it is only a mere change, it has no importance, all arguments except the adaptation to dota 1, are flawed

    You know it is a small change compared to other heros change, and there is not much crying, and if it had, was silenced with time
