  • Faceless Void Rework

    Hi all,

    Faceless Void has won out over Viper in the Compendium model rework vote. To be honest, it was an unexpected result of the final vote even for us. Faceless Void won the votes across all regions.

    We've been grappling with what to do internally for some time now and decided we need more information. So we are approaching the Dota community to gather feedback on what it is about Faceless Void’s model that people are reacting negatively to. It will help us have a good starting point as to how to approach this on our end so that we end up with something that most of the Dota community will be happy with.

    We are specifically looking for information about the parts of the design that you like, and the parts you dislike and why.

    This is a great idea! So, do we like post our opinions? I personally would like him to be more intimidating. He seems too goofy.


    • #3
      For my opinion, Faceless Void has a pretty good model, i wouldn't want him to be changed too much from his original model. One thing though, i don't like his hooves. The designers give too many heroes horns and hooves, i don't like that.

      Lazyness. Not to mention the lack of bugfixes, and the amount of new ones with each new content added

      Credits to Phoenix.

        Nothing needs to be changed, to be completely honest. I don't even understand how could he win.

          This isn't the topic of the discussion though. Are you aware how voting works? People vote. The choice with the most votes wins. Simple.

            Make the face literally "-less" by removing the mouth.
            We need a player review system like Overwatch for DotA 2. Get real people to judge communication abuse, intentional skill abuse, and intentional feeding.

            merci fenix

              Chop his head off, and rename him to "headless void".

              This is the my thought, hire me to work.

                  Might as well remove the whole head then.

                  If you have to change something, change the body - make him look less anthropomorphic. Bane is beautiful.

                    No idea why Faceless Void won the remodel, I was shocked too. Maybe you guys should just pretend the results never happened that way and give the stupid flying snake the proper makeover he deserves.

                    RIP in pepperoni Viper...

                      I don't like his hand and legs. They are too unrealistic and caricature. Look at the images. I highlighted the areas that need improvement:

                      Legs are too crooked after knees. The hooves don't look fit on him. I would rather have some thing more human like.

                      Arms also have only 3 fingers making the character look cartoonish.

                      Also textures quality need general improvement.

                        A nice texture update, and that's about it.

                          I would agree with removing the hooves, I mean would you really transverse a timeless void with hooves (fins actually make more sense, but no fins pls).
                          I guess give him some features that might signify how "timeless" he actually is besides just the lack of eyes and nose (face).

                          Leave the arms and chest, maybe just rework the back, head, lowerbody, and hands as igo said (maybe upper arms too).


                          • #14
                            Artemis is right. They need to remove his hooves. I agree with you on the hands too.

                              i think he should be more ripped

                              the face should be more closer to dota 1 he should have eyes but not a mouth

                              would like to see a spiked armor

                              and while we're on it if you could make medusa sexy
                              and bristleback a pig
                              give razor a mace not a girly whip
                              make SF more flexable
                              give elder titan an axe
                              bring back skeleton king
                              make sand king a scorpion
                              giff LC a dick and a horse
                              add third teachie not some prop that only moves its legs
                              make heroes attack with their weapons not their fists (Necrolite, Shaker, Alchemist)
                              and some heroes need full remake (Bara, Riki, bloodseeker, Enchantress, Mappo, Lich)
