Uno de los héroes más emblemáticos en la historia de DotA, Warlock, llega a Dota 2.

Con un set de habilidades únicas, especialmente la habilidad de invocar un golem de fuego al campo de batalla, el maestro de las artes oscuras se une a las fuerzas de Dire (Scourge) en el juego.

Sistema automático de bloqueo

Junto al nuevo héroe y los cambios habituales de cada jueves, también se ha implementado un nuevo sistema automático de bloqueo al juego. Para explicarlo en pocas palabras, aquellos jugadores que sean detectados abusando constantemente (insultos, spam, etc) del chat o voz dentro del juego serán penados temporalmente de manera que ya no puedan usar el chat o el micrófono en sus futuras partidas. Por supuesto todos estos cambios están todavía bajo desarrollo.
