Descriptions in Aghanim’s Shard/Scepter can sometimes be misleading or difficult to understand to common players. But, with the latest update, DotA made it simpler to comprehend. Tooltips now include more details to see the difference in a skill when acquiring Aghanim’s Shard or Scepter.

2. Toxic teammates? One-Click to rule them all!

What a pleasant day for pub gamers! There’s no need to argue with toxic teammates. DotA 2 now gives you a single click which will automatically mute voice, mute text, and then report a toxic teammate once and for all. For easy high-level control, you can also use the new Team Mute buttons to block out an entire team’s communications with a click.

3. Searching in the Shop made easier
