It’s the end of the week, so what has actually happened in the Dota2 scene you may wonder? Well, for starters, the Dota2 team announced today that the HUD (heads-up display) has undergone some changes. People working with higher resolution machines will now be able to view the Move Speed as one of the stats visible on the HUD as part of an attempt to “more efficiently use space in wider resolutions.”
On top of that, changes have been made to the Courier UI and the glyph state is more clearly exposed and easier to reach. Finally, the team decided to update the look of the item icons for those of you who were craving for a somewhat fresh look in terms of display and user interface.
Meanwhile, the Grand Final of the SLTV Star Series is nearing its end. The event takes stage in Kiev, Ukraine and has Europe’s top teams competing over a top prize of $ 6.000. The event has not been without surprises as Moscow Five took It’s Gosu’s place for the finals after the latter were unable to make it to Kiev in time. Either way, Gosugamers got the entire event covered, so make sure to stop by for a quick Dota2 fix.
On the Asian front, regional top Dota and Dota2 pro team ‘Orange’ prepares for this Week’s Prodota2 League (against DK) and the Gigabyte Dota Masters after just having won the Razor Invitational Showcase and GEST last weekend. In an article featured on Gosugamers.com, Orange’s team members confess that team bonding is probably the most important ingredient to their success. “We want to spend as much time doing activities to enhance our chemistry - we want to catch a movie together, go on trips together, eat together, sleep together,” the team explained.
On a different note, the official Dota2 webpage linked to some excellent Dota2 fan art, which is totally worth checking out.
