      Of course, just because we have some Assassin with names, even if the hero kill people can not be called a assassin

      we should call it Smurff

        Now Spirit is also a frequent name, we have:

        Vengeful Spirit
        Spirit Breaker
        Ember Spirit
        Earth Spirit
        Storm Spirit

        6.80 patch new hero Shadow Knight, The Assassin Spirit

          To me, it's greater than names, titles are more epic to hear than names.
          Phantom Assassin > Mortred
          Shadow Fiend > Nevermore
          Templar Assassin > Lanaya
          Names specify but titles put them on a whole new level, it creates more imagination than names. Example:

          "Nevermore feeds on souls" - Who's Nevermore?
          "The Shadow Fiend feeds on souls" - Woah! the Shadow Fiend.

            Are you insinuating Blizzard has copyrighted the word "Destroyer"? All I gather from this is Valve, for whatever reason, thought they needed to change Outworld Destroyer to Devourer (Devourer isn't even a proper word by the way lol) to avoid 'being anything like Warcratf 3' which is silly considering the entire game is based completely off of it.

            Honestly there's nothing wrong with "Obsidian Destroyer" anyways, since no Warcraft 3 or Blizzard character has that name. It was a combination of the Obsidian Statue and Destroyer unit names, though I find "Outworld Destroyer" to sound much cooler.

            Your argument is terrible.
            The Warcraft unit "Destroyer" has a previous form called the "Obsidian Statue." DotA came and took two words together to make the "Obsidian Destroyer". Since it sounds too similar to the Warcraft units previously mentioned, they changed it to what he is now.

            Also, the "Destroyer" HAS been called occasionally the "Obsidian Destroyer" in Warcraft terms and such. So yeah, YOUR argument is now invalid.

                First two original Dota 2 heroes will be called Shadow Shadow and Assassin Assassin.

                You heard here first.
