SPECTATOR:

  • The Director will now acknowledge all Ultimate usages not just the ones that damage, so you can no longer pretend that Echo Slam in the jungle by yourself didn’t happen.
  • Tweaks to Directed camera framing and movement.

UI

  • Added chat spam throttling.
  • Players that have not purchased a Tournament Pass will no longer be able to watch that Tournament’s replays.
  • Sellback times no longer expire when moving items to the courier.
  • Commendations are now only allowed from within games.
  • Commendation totals are not incremented until the game is finished.
  • Commendation totals are not incremented if the game was less than 10 minutes long.
  • Fixed item stocks not restoring correctly when multiple items are sold back within the sellback time.
  • Added a message when a player destroys the Aegis.
  • Added confirmation dialog before starting a Tournament game with one or more teams not specified.
  • Added client-side console variables allowing spectators to locally disable certain announcer lines. Especially useful for broadcasters. The cvars are:

cl_dota_speech_spec_towerattack
cl_dota_speech_spec_towerfalls
cl_dota_speech_spec_barracksattack
cl_dota_speech_spec_barracksfalls
cl_dota_speech_spec_ancientattack
cl_dota_speech_spec_enemybasefalls
cl_dota_speech_spec_idles
Set any of them to ‘0’ to prevent that line from playing. (Broadcasters will almost always want to set cl_dota_speech_spec_idles 0 ).

  • Multiple players who have the same announcer equipped in the same game should now hear the same line being spoken.

BOTS

  • Enabled AFK and leaver penalties for co-op bot matches.
