Another update for Valves baby DOTA 2 has released today. We are sure that you diehard fans are interested in each and every fix, change and adaptation that this update entails. You can find all of the details below or you can go to the Steam blog page and have a peek.

User Interface

Gameplay

- Fixed AoE gold not being given to hidden heroes (such as Phoenix using Supernova, Brewmaster using Primal Split)

Community
- Abandonment penalties will now be applied much more quickly after the abandonment occurs. (Previously the penalty was applied at the end of the match that was abandoned.)
- Abandonment in a ranked match before first blood will now count as a loss for the abandoner and all party members. (MMR will decrease.) For all other players in the game, the match will not be scored. After first blood, the same rules apply as before: the match will be scored for all players. The abandoner will always receive a loss, but all other players will be scored a win/loss according to the actual match outcome.
