    - When a player is banned, everyone who reported them since their last ban receives a message when they next login informing them that justice has been served.

    Each team has a captain (blue for radiant, pink for dire) that first bans 2 heroes, then picks 3, then bans another 2, then picks the last 2. After that, everyone takes one of the heroes that the captain picked to play as.

    Sort of.
    Basically, each team has a captain (party/lobby leader) and the captains alternate between banning certain heroes and picking heroes. When heroes have been completely picked & banned, then each player chooses their own hero and the game begins.

    The point is to purposefully develop a team with good chemistry while banning heroes who will obstruct, counter, or otherwise hinder your team. It upps the amount of strategy in DOTA and makes the game 50% bans/picks, 50% actual game/meta-game.

    - Fixed sweet exploit where you could buy a nice juicy passive item, give it to another friendly hero, have that hero die and upon respawn the passive effects of the item would be granted -- Desolator would start desolating, butterfly would start buttering, etc.

    You could buy an item with a passive and give it to an ally, which would normally make it not work for them, then if they died it would work for them.

    Not necessarily I think we were both just guessing.
    Could have been what he said, too.

    On the bright side, our game team has been working as usual, building new heroes and features. So you can expect our next update, which we’re probably going to regret saying will be out next week, to be a packed one.

    It's still a really long changelog.

    +We still have the Dota 2 Test release, which will probably be a lot more.

    - Added new game mode: Single Draft.
    - New interface for finding lobbies.
    - Added game mode (AP, SD, CM) selection for matchmaking.
    - Your own private games are now displayed in your match history.
    Yessssssss

    Those options are so much better than an extra hero for me.

    I assume it has to be a ridiculously high amount of reports, and I don't think it would be an automatic ban either.

    They released the change log, that's it so far.

    We're getting a new mode, mm functionality with two new modes, new interface, hero repick, replay update, a new hero, a huge amount of bug fixes and AI enhancements, and an enhanced replay system. Not getting several new heroes =/= an update that isn't packed.

    You get a random strength, agility, and intelligence hero, and you pick one of them to play.

    Everyone gets 1 str, 1 agi, 1 int to pick from, each one random from the pool. If you don't like what you got, tough shit.

    In HoN you could just swap with a teammate, but Dota 2 doesn't have swap(yet?).
