Dota 6.68 Video Preview Delayed!

Dota 6.68 Trailer
Few weeks ago, IceFrog announced that he'll release a Dota 6.68 preview video which will showcase the development progress of DotA 6.68 and it's changes (new heroes etc.). Now he has made another post in which he says that "I'll post previews here when the map is mostly ready". See what he says:



Update#2:
IceFrog has released the DotA 6.68 Video Preview highlighting the cool and new stuff.

Update #1:
IceFrog showcases the preview of New DoTA 6.68 Gold System.

IceFrog Blog (6/15/2010):

Some people asked me to repost a response I wrote about DotA 6.68 development from a forum thread:

STR1D3R says:
i agree that some sort of estimation would be nice although i understand that you dont like giving these out because it puts pressure on you and if you fail to meet it there will be a lot of QQ threads.

maybe some form of i am roughly x% of the way through to give us some sort of idea would be nice.

IceFrog's Reply:
It is also because I can't be sure myself. It is not easy to accurately predict "it will take 1 week to make this hero fun", there is a good amount of experimentation and beta testing that is needed to arrive at that stage. And like you said, if I posted "June 26" and I missed it by a week or two, people would be upset. I also don't want to make my development goal be a date rather than the content, that style of development makes it easy to make bad decisions. I can tell you that I'll do my best to make sure any wait is worthwhile though. The only thing on my mind is DotA's development and future.

As for your request, I'd say its definitely much more than half way through.

With regards to the video trailer, I was originally planning to post it well in advance of the map release but I've decided to hold off on making it until more content is finalized. I'll post previews here when the map is mostly ready.


It looks like we have to wait a little bit more longer for the 6.68 preview and the map. Remember the v6.60 time ^^ ? Anyways, Good Luck IceFrog, take your time because it makes us more excited about DotA 6.68.

sucks, you dont even know when map is gonna complete?

I agree with you IceFrog. But why do you introduce mass changes in one single release? this consumes o much time and bugs chances are very high. IMHO just release 1 map every month and we will be happy xD

Well, I'm still having fun with current version of DotA, and I don't desperately need new heroes right now. Just keep working, no need to make haste. Take your time and keep up the good work!

man all of you unappreciative bastards can fuck off, icefrog gives us most of his time to make maps and give us exciting content in every new map release those who don't like it can fuck off, or just humbly shut up and keep their opinion to themselves

Maybe Blizzard can also do something for us, Because they are responsible for negating maphacks, From what I've seen from most maphacks, It doesn't matter whether it's 6.67 or 6.68 but the Warcraft TFT Version meaning "1.24d, 1.24e, 1.24c" so I hope Blizzard will release a Patch that can surely negate the maphack. The maphacks kill the game.
