    Dear Hefaistus moderator,

    I hope you will allow this thread to exist.
    While I cannot speak for the rude actions of other anonymous posters, I hope you understand that this change is in some way related to Lore.

    This is because Luna's voicelines have already been embedded into our minds and this is how we portray and associate Luna and Nova to be. This reason, coupled with the fact that Luna's mount, from Dota 1's inception, has always been a panther, a symbol for feminine prowess, makes for a very iconic identity of the heroine.

    Thank you for your understanding.
    He's the hero this community deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt his identity, because he can take it, because he's not our hero. He's a silent buffer, a watchful nerfer. An IceFrog.

    That is a good man, a bulk of the older models are far, far better than what Valve changed them to.

    I just see the high degree of hypocrisy these people

    where changing a mount is bad and deface the character no

    and the worst is that one has to change make sense, the other does not

    priestesses of elune, use moon power, use the glaives, and ride panthers and other cats, and dota 2 stated the same thing, where are the guys of copyright on my topic of legiom commander to help me here ?

    Legion Commander doesn't have anything to do with copyrights. Some characters have had differences from Dota 1 when initially being imported, such as Windrunner isn't a dark elf, Juggernaut isn't an orc, etc etc.

    this makes no sense, Windrunner never had the night elf model, she used the model of sylvanas before becoming undead, (practically the same thing this dota 1) and jugguernaut just put a mask and took his flag and cleared a bit its color

    which made no sense at legiom to change EVERYTHING, no small thing as they


    so I say, it makes no sense crying over change of mount

    Besides, she's still riding a panther. Just a panther with a mane.
    Nope, that was Blizzard stealing from Dungeons and Dragons. THe same goes for 80% of Wc3 creatures.

    The change also relates to lore, as Nova is an integral part of her story.

    Also if it belongs in the model feedback section. Then why haven't you moved it there. Is that not part of your duty as a mod?

    Take a look into the mirror! You think you are completely unfailable. With your limited knowledge, you think that you know more than someone who is very deep in the matter/an expert.

    Luna on a lion mount conflicts with the Dota 2 lore, and no one is "crying." As far as Sylvanas Windrunner goes, the skin and ears clearly indicate an elven heritage- which of course differs from Lyralei Windrunner of Dota 2.

    Also, Legion Commander isn't the only hero to have their gender changed within the game. Anyhow, a mod has already let you know in the past to avoid this discussion, it causing the locking of another topic very recently.

    Dota 1 lore and Dota 2 lore don't always coincide. Just look at this tree, there are some very large differences: http://bbs.replays.net/upload/200904...1579694223.jpg

    the lore can be changed, once changed, can change again, simple, Now luna has a black lion different of dota 1, as you said need not coincide

    the windrunner has not changed much, lost the pointy ears, and now has hair show, a few small changes of this kind I wanted to see the legiom

    so I repeat, does not make sense to complain of such changes in dota 2

    Incorrect. We are mainly talking about the existing Dota 2 lore and models being altered- this lore and these models having existed for nearly 3 years now inside of Dota 2.
