    +1. Also keep in mind that the SDK model viewer pics don't show any detail from the normal/specularity maps. PA's Divination helmet is a good example of this:



    It looks extremely flat and boring in the SDK viewer (as does the rest of her model), but its material has much more detail in game. A lot of you guys are giving some pretty harsh criticisms without even seeing the item in context.

    Well until Valve lets us see the items properly this is what we got to work with now isnt it? :P And I dont really think waiting until it is in game THEN voice concerns is the way to go. If someone sees an issue, you should bring it up.

    I am worried Valve is going to start becoming more and more loose with what is okay or not here until we got Team fortress 2.0 on our hands here

    Idk if that pic with Shadow shaman is true, this is the first time I see it. But if he gets a backpack, I want Crystal Maiden to get a Gucci handbag so she can store all those wards.

    I don't know if you are trolling or not, so I'm gonna assume you aren't. Do you honestly can compare a backpack full of minerals for a hero that is a miner (and has a shovel as his weapon) to a fucking excursion backpack oh a shaman? (WITH A SLEEPING BAG? REALLY?) I honestly don't care if he has a backpack, just not one to go hiking because IT DOESN'T FIT THE HERO

    Going to put the image again so you can seriously say to me it does fit the hero so I can laugh


    Totally profesional and really similar to this

    Let me add something relevant here. I have gotten some items I thought looked terrible in screenshots, but when in game they actually look really good. The Clinkz one looks really good to me, not sure what you dislike ?

    This backpack is not OK since it looks like something a German tourist would take with him while on a hiking trip. Looks too modern and not at all "shamany"

    Just because it looks "Russian", does it really mean Kunkka can't wear it? Bitch please. It's practical for a sailor and actually looks good on him. And it's not like half of the world right now uses this design for warm and cozy hats. There is no Russia in Dota (one could argue about this, since Russians dominate the EU servers), therefore this is NOT a "Russian hat". It's a warm, practical hat, that is made out of natural materials.

    Sure, it looks a bit silly, but this helmet makes more sense than ~50% of Furions cosmetics that are already in the game. And its not like he's wielding a wooden penis (one can easily make a penis shaped staff out of wooden branch and there are no arguments why it could not be done). The Acorn helmet is actually VERY fitting since it's natural shape is used. Also it is used for it's quality to withstand blows. How can you say that a cosmetic that makes more sense than it is silly has no place in the game?

    Dosn't really mean anything. The outfit for Ursa got put in despite the negativity around it

    Personally and I may set everyone against me right now - I like where valve is going with this. more items = more choices
