  • Can't pick restricted heroes in Captain's Draft

    Phoenix and Earth Spirit have no portraits, they can't be picked or banned. You can tell they're actually available by counting Strength heroes or by watching the replay. — My last CD game, replay shows that Earth Spirit was available but I couldn't see him on the picking screen — Lobby game with only 7 Strength heroes, both Phoenix and Earth Spirit should be available

    Other restricted heroes can't be picked too. Whenever I click "Pick Bloodseeker" the button disappears and his portrait is deselected.

    In recent Captain's Draft matches there's not a single game where PL, BS, Techies or Broodmother were picked, or Phoenix and Earth Spirit banned —

    Using a Linux client, btw.

      There was a patch yesterday that enabled all `unbalanced' heroes in Captain's Draft.

      * Captain's Draft no longer has any restricted heroes
      De jure they're now available in the draft, but they can't actually be picked which is a bug.

        Very weird bug. I expected them to program them into CD, not just leaving a few spaces open with no heroes in them

          This has happened with other heroes before if you have -override_vpk enabled, but seems like its not the cause this time
