Hello everyone and welcome to another "Leak Session"[: Post that is entirely or almost entirely dedicated to the BETA leaks.]! The past couple of days have been crazy in terms of content leaking from the BETA! Different sources and different information! We will try to give you a heads up on all the latest leaks so you can stay up to date with everything around your favourite game! Moreover, we will present you with some cool stuff that are coming to PLAYSTATION 3 TALK FORUM!
I will try to present the news as they came in from older to newer to preserve the momentum.DOTA 2 Regional MatchmakingThe screenshot above leaked by a French forum shows the introduction of regional matchmaking into the game. This means that people from different countries are able to play with one another, most notably American and European/Chinese players considering the large distance and the resulting high latency commonly seen in DotA1 competitive games. Dota 2 Hero Icons UPDATEDThe picture above shows what seems to be new hero icons. We can't be sure that these are legit or not, since most of them look very unfinished or WIP concept art, but we can confirm that the Bloodseeker and Yurnero icons are legitimate because we've seen them before. Nonetheless, this is certainly an exciting find as it offers us a sneak preview of the rest of the heroes! Here are our speculations on who these heroes are (from top row, left to right):
Kunkka, Ursa Warrior, Huskar, Lanaya, Phantom Assassin, Rikimaru, Juggernaut, Bloodseeker, Bone Clinkz, Skeleton King, Atropos, Rubick, Broodmother, Jakiro, Medusa, Naix. DOTA 2 ScreenshotsThe, now infamous, vietnamese beta tester Tsunami Nori posted the above screenshots! It looks like the UI is adjustable? Anyway, here they are!
