    The Yellow Reaver Thread

    So, 5/2/2012's update to the test client showed us, again, a new reaver icon (the left one)



    Im my opinion, valve is just going further away from the concept of reaver, from an awesome red huge axe to a yellow mix of colors now.
    Reaver should look exactly like it looks on the Dota 2 Gamescom Trailer, what the first icon before all these updates did very well, going yellow is totally not the way.

    Little history on reaver's icons:

    thats called a background. the reaver didn't change at all, and as far as i can tell, there's still red on the cleaver.

    also, we'll have a new trailer for the international 2. what will you whine about then?

    New one is better.

    "In my option " is not really a valid phrasal construction.

    I very much like the axe. Not certain about the yellow background, but it certainly works better (and looks better) than the red one.

    sorry, mistyped that, i think the new one is better too, but its way too far from the original concept

    The background is fine, the problem is that the Reaver itself is just a dark shadow. It needs more evident red details like the old one.

    Well they added strings on the handle.
    The yellow-ish mood of the icon just smash the gruesome of a reaver, it looks like an holy infused weapon now, which is not :\
    At least is not TERRI-BAD, there are other icons that are just silly (eg: new skadi hue, satanic and demon edge)

    I like the gold background better, give better contrast with the axe.

    That said, I still don't like the Icon that much. Just feels off.
