There is still a slight possibility of DotA 6.79d map as some players reported to have lose control of their hero in middle of the game. If you encounter any bug and find it annoying, report it to IceFrog. The DotA 6.79c AI will take time port due to new in-game mechanics and heroes that were added in v6.78.

P.S. The secret quest has been removed in this map.

Where is the AI map.
Are you run out of AI coder.

If you buy backed, that caused your gold to be strucked. That is stated in the changlog of 6.79

All heroes are balanced, if you know how to exactly counter them, right?

For those who hated the CHANGES of Earth.Spirit please make your own map with no CHANGES of Earth.Spirit you idiots

Anonymous said...

Really? You think Husk and Phoenix are imbalaced? Husk can easily die from pure and physical damage (timber, omni, impetus(ench), naix etc.)
Phoenix will die if the opposing team will have Troll or any other attackspeed buffer (even in teamfights team will go for the egg!)

-DotA 6.79b has a bug in -switch mode. When a hero switches to another team, the switched hero can be sighted anywhere by the enemy.
Did the new map also include the bug fix of switching players?

For those who got angry because I posted that I hated the changes of Earth Spirit. Well, its really none of your business! I am just expressing my reactions towards his changes. Not for you to criticize my post.

I have great amount of lag on my pc. It's true it's an older pc with 1gb ram and a 1,4 ghz processor with 64mb ram, but dota used to work just fine before the 6.79c version. now it's laggy and my internet is even better than before.

also, when a player, or me, chooses king leoric, it's even more laggy!!!

Can't wait for the AI version , so that my younger bro can learn how to play.

Anyone reading this please make sure that the thing you complain is not really a bug.

The gold stuck bug is not a bug. It happens when you buyback. Buying back prevents you from earning realiable gold 'til your death timer is finished.
