Dota 6.68 CM, Item & Tiny - Dota 6.68 Preview #2 - DotA-Blog

Dota 6.68 CM, Item & Tiny - Dota 6.68 Preview #2

IceFrog has just made the second post about the Dota 6.68 preview. This time, he gives us a sneak peek to the new Captains Mode, Orb of Venom (new items), Tiny's Aghanim Scepter upgrade and Kinetic Field (new hero ability). On the same post, he also said that the new map is very close to finish. Yay!! Here are the details of the preview:

1- Captains Mode: There is a new ban and pick system for CM in 6.68. Instead of 4 bans and then 5 picks, now it is 3 bans and then 3 picks followed by 2 bans and 2 picks. Information about the exact drafting order will be detailed in the changelog.

Wow, this should make the draft more interesting. Since we can guess the enemies strategy from the first 3 picks, now we can counter it on the second round of bans.
2- A new basic item, Orb of Venom:

I don't know what it is.. But i guess it is something that gives a slow or maybe poison effect.

3- Tiny with a new ability he gains from Aghaninm's Scepter:
Wow, Tiny seems scarier now.. I wonder if the new ability has something to do with that club he carries.
4- Kinetic Field, an ability on one of the new heroes:

OK, i don't have any idea about this one. Can you give your thoughts guys?

Yeah, seems Dota 6.68 will be coming very soon. Keep in touch with DotA-Blog and we will make you one of the fastest person who played that map :) On topic, what do you think about this preview?

PS: In case you miss it, check also the Dota Preview #1.

Final Update
It released guys!! Check out the Dota 6.68 Download Links and the Dota 6.68 Changelogs.

  5. I don't this is a slowing orb. It is just too imbalance. Perhaps an item with minor damage over time ? Like poisons ?

  32. You really shouldn't disrespect HoN people. Yeah, DotA is better, but HoN really isn't that bad. And please release the video as soon as humanly possible :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. hahaha maybe for toss... itd be like hitting a baseball

    ReplyDelete
  34. DoTA is as healthy as ever, support for the game has never wavered. And so as far as I am concerned HoN and LoL are just poor copycats.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That kinetic field could be the same as one of the skills of engineer in the Heroes of newerth... something like a forcefield that encloses opponents and teammates...

    ReplyDelete
  36. i can't wait to dota 6.68 map. what is the relese date.? please reply. the kinetic is so cool =p
    and the tiny aghanims scepter.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is getting more and more interesting. :D
    Also, please, no one rage on HoN and LoL players. Those are both great games... This is a site about DotA, so talk about DotA!

    ReplyDelete
  39. At 1st, I think HoN maybe better...
    When think about it... No way in hell they can beat dota!!!
    And Oh yeah... Tiny got a warclub!!! WOOOT!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  43. Tiny will become a real badass with scepter :))

    ReplyDelete
  44. i very sad when i got letter from dota-allstar.com creator says that icefrog sale dota game concept to the severals company which is mean birth of LoL and HoN cause by icefrog itself.. :(

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hmm....Something is Wrong??...Kinetic Field :O. I think Icefrog implemented a hero based on hero suggestions....

    ReplyDelete
  46. kinetic field is like a crono??or shiva??

    ReplyDelete
  47. dude, how long it will take to release just only the video preview -_-...plz released it as soon as possible....

    ReplyDelete
  48. dota will be more interesting now

    ReplyDelete
  49. wa.... so nice.... but im sure 100% got imbalance and nid to do a remake map until 6.68e i think... plus with few new hero.... but it still nice... luv icefrog....

    ReplyDelete
  50. i think roshan should drop either an aegis or divine at random when killed, just because no one ever builds a divine during the game. what do you guys think?

    ReplyDelete
  51. don't think icefrog sold out, i mean his out there busting his ass off to update DoTA and make it more exciting for us. and his doing it for the love of the game without any monetary consideration.

    ReplyDelete
  52. hey admin what happened to my replay post

    ReplyDelete
  53. "Anonymous said...

    i think roshan should drop either an aegis or divine at random when killed, just because no one ever builds a divine during the game. what do you guys think?"

    if that were to happen, the game would be totally imbalance. lets assume, if the team were to fight roshan at lvl 1, and it drops divine, at start, it will only take about 3-4 hits to kill a hero. and that's for tankers. Just imagine. ==

    ReplyDelete
  54. kinetic field becomes blue and white, but what is the function of that,the blue trap an enemy the white let go the enemy?

  55. kinetic energy..skill of thrall, the far seer
