Dota 2 First Blood update adds LAN play, Captain's Draft

Look for it early next week

The next big Dota 2 update isn't available just yet -- it'll be pushed out on Monday, September 23 -- but Valve has the patch notes ready for you to scan, line by line. The First Blood update introduces local play, Captain's Draft, a Portal Pack, new community-created content, and your Backpack is now your Armory. A few other standout items from the notes:

  • Upgraded Items can always be disassembled within 10 seconds of the combine (same rules as sell back)
  • Item purchases can be made at the secret shop if the courier is at that location without selecting the courier
  • Control groups are now saved to the cloud, per hero, and will persist across games and disconnects. They are saved per hero
  • The quality of the item drops you are eligible for is now tied to your Dota profile level. You can see your current drop level in your profile page

For an absurdly in-depth look at the patch, check out Cyborgmatt's Blog.
