DoTA 2 Update - December 18th 2015

By Rebecca Smith, 10 months ago
DoTA 2's latest patch has fixed the following bugs:

* Improved Ward placement indicator.
* Adjusted Fog of War visibility size for particle effects on Hand of Midas, Sand King's Sandstorm, Tidehunter's Ravage, Vengeful Spirit's Wave of Terror and Tusk's Ice Shards.
* Fixed a general underlying issue that could cause various types of visual effects to appear through FoW (this fixes a certain class of visual effect bugs, but there are still a few edge cases we are working on).
* Fixed an old bug where creeps would sometimes shortcut the lane if many trees were removed.
* Fixed Illusions not benefiting from Scepter upgraded Marksmanship.

* SFM: Fixed dota_685 and dota_desert maps not loading.
* SFM: Fixed the game's current map pack from overriding the requested map in SFM.
* SFM: Fixed bug where some bones weren't editable in the SFM (Axe, Omniknight, etc).

At home, with a variety of PCs and consoles on hand from which to choose, starting with a ZX Spectrum, games are never far away there either.
