Latest patch with several improvements


Valve has released another important patch which comes with several fixes and improvements for Dota 2 yesterday on October 9th. Fixes for visuals with immortals, bug fixes and several performance improvements were only some of the changes. More importantly, Valve decided to grant the users more options to change the layout of the armory so that users can arrange items in a way they want them to be. On another note the chat has also undergone slight changes.


The most important changes of the most recent patch are the changes in the Armory section. The "Collection view" is a space that is fully customizable so that users can put and arrange items in any way they would like to. New filters and new notifications make it easier to see the items you want to and they ensure you won't miss your most recently acquired items. With the help of a new command one can also import layouts for the armory.

One can also share his party or lobby in any chat channel now, making it easier to find new people to join the lobby or let others know that they can join in. It should be a lot easier now to connect to games or lobbies of your friends.

- Added the Collection tab to the Armory which lets you customize the layout of your items.
