Due to a great number of DOTA 2 ongoing events and tournaments Valve has released a short patch instead of habitual update. This update adds the functionality of save/load the game. It’s same as Warcraft 3 DOTA but the game gets saved automatically in the background every minute.
DOTA 2 Patch Notes (11/23/11):
– Added save/load functionality to private games. Every minute a new save file is automatically created. This happens in the background so you won’t notice it. The lobby leader will be able to load any of the saved games from the Game Setup option when creating a new lobby.
– Undocumented Changes:
– Added new icon set for Naix, Lifestealer and his all abilities [upcoming hero].
– Updated icon for Witch Doctor.
