DotA 2 will see this update 1st. It is official. Played earlier with the DotA 2 test. From Vavle's and Icefrog's point of view, they will give priority to DotA 2 because of the profit that they are making from the the game, it is really hard to believe that the original map MOD is slowly dying because of DotA 2's market. well, it makes perfect sense, the main reason why DotA 2 is free to play so players can switch to it and leave the old game behind. Well, so much for that, lets go back with the update. As you can see (this will also be the proof that Icefrog is now focused on DotA 2 than Warcraft DotA) most of the major changes was based on tournament analysis and player feedback (from tournaments of course), a good example is the Buyback, we always see in tournaments, even in public games a lot of Buyback's, so they decided to add a penalty to it. Another example and (for me) most important change is the Roshan respawn time, if you'll analyze this, why did Icefrog changed Roshan's respawn time after a player/team kills it? Simple, this will make the players and guard the pit and a lot more time in checking it. What will be the outcome of that? More team fights and entertainment that the fans always wanted, and also for the players. Which brings down to one conclusion, FANS satisfaction = more money. Look at what happened to TI3, Valve got a huge boost in their market after TI3. So for the 1st time and for the coming updates, expect that DotA 2 will see the update 1st before Warcraft DotA, or much worse, there is a chance that Warcraft DotA will not see this updates anymore. Giving the fact that DotA 2 implements the new updates no later than a week for tournament maps, Warcraft DotA will be gone in less than a year. I play Warcraft DotA and DotA 2. I learned from Warcraft DotA, so it is so sad that what many would have thought that Warcraft DotA will never fade, it is happening now. There are no other explanations to this. Let's just hope another developer implement new updates for Warcraft DotA. There's a lot of Devs there who modded Warcraft maps.

i just wanna say that thank god i quitted dota
these changes ruin the game more and more

I don't think 6.79 patch will ever come. Some mechanics introduced in this patch is uncodeable in wc3 engine. Hate to say it but 6.78c will be the last DotA version of icefrog.

To all who think that it's possible that dota will soon come to a halt, you are wrong. Yes it is possible that Dota 2 will most likely have all the first views of upcoming updates but every update in both Dota and Dota 2 depends on changelogs in the original Dota. Everything in the map is based on Warcraft. If you think that making heroes from ideas wills still be fine you're wrong again. If they actually did that chances are that players will decrease as it will slowly go away from what the game actually is: the fight of the Sentinel vs. the Dire. The only reason why Valve gets the updates first is because since they turned a map into an actual game, it has way more problems. They did it so they could fix things. And since it's an actual game already, they could force commands a lot easier compared to actually editing the DotA map which could actually destroy the schematics of the map.

the removal of speed limits in dota 1(wc3) is somewhat unimplementable due to engine limitations I believe.. Other changes are so drastic that it makes me don't want to play those nerfed heroes anymore... but riki for the win.... dagon+ ethereal blade = new meta. instakill someone without knowing what hit them lol...

Unknown said...

yeah.. the removal of the 512 max speed limit for Blood seeker is unimplementable in Dota 1(wc3) i believe. Some changes are so drastic that it makes me don't want to play those nerfed heroes any more. But still riki dagon+ethereal blade = new meta... instakill someone without knowing what hit them..

most of the changes cannot be done in Dota1..the warcraft Mod is really dying...

The most unlike changes in this version is that the tanggo is not share able. And riki will not be seen even if he cast spells or use item. And slark cannot be seen even if enemy uses gem of true sight. I think this Is not the latest version in dot a. I think this version was compared to the map. DotaImba 6.78. Good luck icefrog. This version will be hated by the professional gamers. They will notice all the mistake easily.

WTF? Naix Rage from 15 to 17 to 19? WTF and my Huskar lesser AGI? what for is his 3rd skill will be useless, he just strong with lesser life but.. OMG... RIKI is already strong but they make him more Godlike. So imba.

Anonymous said...

As you can see, and what most people are saying, MOST OF THE UPDATES cannot be implemented in DOTA 1. So quit hoping that DOTA 1 will still see these new updates, DOTA 1 has limitations, but for a new game, there is none. Adding the fact that the dev of DOTA 2 is Icefrog himself, then, I don't think DOTA 1 will ever to be updated again. Unless they modded the entire Warcraft game and I don't think Icefrog will waste his time modding DOTA 1 for IT WILL NOT MAKE PROFIT for him or for Valve, people change due to money and nothing can change that. He now works for a company that he can apply his skills and earn a lot of money, so if you were Icefrog, will you waste your time modding an old game rather than making your new game better? Besides, DOTA 2 is free to play. Last question, do you see any test maps for DOTA 1? I'm telling you, the changes has been implemented already in DOTA 2, why not in DOTA 1? Why not in the game that sees the updates 1st before? Why only in DOTA 2? Because of GAME ENGINE LIMITATIONS. Nowadays its not really about the fans anymore, it is about money. And the fans will always be there, whether the game is free to play or pay to play, that is why Diablo III and Stafcraft II proved that nothing can stop people from playing even if they need to spend a lot of money for it. And thats the main goal of every gaming company, to make money.

Dont know whats icefrog is upto... But this thing is going to pull DOTA's repo down... Many pro players are going to quit to LOL after reading all this...

Anonymous said...

I don't get this. They make a new map 6.79 with only balance changes and buffs. Why don't they give us some new items or new champions to make this game more fun. Old dota players will know what I mean. No so long ago every new map that was coming out had something new and interesting, but from now on we do not get new items or heroes. All it is are balance changes, nerfes and buffs.

FVCK! This version is IMBA :S

Why they call this map is 6.79 when it willn't be released for dota 1? They should call it "Dota 2 map".

Anonymous said...

why is this imbalanced again?
i thinks it's okay maybe except for some buffs.
IMO i dont think the increase smoke screen aoe is good.
huskar is actually good now considering huskar plus skel king combo. range passive lifesteal or traxex + skel king.
i guess they just wanted to change the meta during the TI3, like less wisp and batrider bans, or less alche picks.

Anonymous said...

and don't compare the games that want to do things differently. for example in hon you have new heroes but some old heroes are weaker than the heroes in dota 2. take for example zeus's counterpart in hon. all his skills are weaker compared than. nobody gives a damn because he is used very sparingly, and thats what valve/dota2/icefrog want to avoid; nobody using a hero.
bloodseeker is still crap though , he'll just become a last hitting maniac with a terrible cast point.

this is dota 1 or dota 2 ? what dota ? please specific?

super unbalance this dota 2 new update..

besides, the older versions of Dota 1, it has been tradition that every

It seems like they won't update the DotA 1 map anymore, too bad.

Not everyone want to play DotA 2, you know. Some people just want to create an ad-hoc connection and form a LAN, so they can play with their friends without any need of internet connection.
In the opposite of DotA 1, in DotA 2 you HAVE TO connect to the internet and log-in into the Steam network. There's no flexibility like the way it used to be on DotA 1.

I often play DotA 2 with its gorgeous graphic, better multiplayer, better keyboard shortcuts, and any other improvements from the original, and yes, it's way better than the DotA 1.
But I just....well, it feels nostalgic to play the original DotA 1. DotA 1 is where every single things on DotA 2 originated from. There WON'T be any DotA 2 without DotA 1.

You guys whoever update the DotA 1 maps, shouldn't have abandoned this old,great,original game. Sure, you guys can stop the core game (Warcraft 3) development, BUT NOT THE MAP!

why for dota 2 only ? ...
pudge and vengeful plus dagger are okay ...
it is unfair that rubick can use meathook or swap and dagger , right ? .

Sniper Kardel need speed and more damage resistance and magic, since their skills makes little difference. Mini retardation have to turn delays of delay as Chaos Knight. Heroes like Sniper are not heroes but heroes sub, compared with Ursa Warrior or Terrorblade ...
