    i hope there won’t be maphacks on Dota 2.

  • I hope abaddon come first 😀

  • Collector

    They simply can’t get maphacks in the actual netgame. Its just about the practice game that you play alone. Even if there’s one other person in the game, it runs from the server, so do not fear guys 🙂
