    As much as I like playing Dota 2, I feel like the Reborn update was pushed way too quickly.

    Even after so many patches to fix things, I've had a match where a Trent Protector was level 1 or 2 at the 12 minute mark because he couldn't move without freezing the screen he said, so he'd end up walking into Techies mine who knows how many times. Giving him the benefit of the doubt because he was stacked up with 2 friends, one who couldn't even leave fountain and the other who kept apologizing.
    The game after that, half of both teams just disconnected right off the bat.
    And those are just two examples, usually at least one person does end up d/c'ing every match, which was a lot higher of a rate than before Reborn came out.

    And then there's tons of other little things, like my statue still showing up as just an "Error" message wearing the CM arcana, the inability to change announcer packs if someone else in the match has one you want to use, the fact that they still haven't giving out all the other compendium rewards while releasing a new compendium, Dota somehow uninstalling itself upon my friend trying to play a custom game, it's just like, why Volvo, why.

    /rant over

    My major purpose of posting this was to ask if anyone else has been seeing these issues commonly, I figured there would be posts about it if anything.

    I also have a CM arcana error statue, it looks kind of cool but is a daily reminder of how broken this shitty client it.

    You aren't wrong, Reborn is godawful and it's actually slowly killing my desire to play the game, even right now with a new patch when the game hasn't been more fun in months.

    What is so bad about reborn? I like it very much. I personally haven't seen anything bigger than quite minor issues. Game is more than playable and this is same for people I play with. There were some server issues but they are now fixed. A bug-free software is not possible and considering reborn update was quite big, these kind of issues were bound to happen. They are fixing rapidly. This is nothing but a success story in terms of software development.

    My experience is almost bug-free.

    I think WoD had less bugs in it at launch than Reborn has for me at least.

    Did you try even playing Ability draft during the beta? Granted, yes that was during testing, but god it was broken as hell. Heroes would literally disappear if you picked certain passives, Tiny was just an arm and a head, it was a mess.

    Also have a funny video to show what I mean

    I have no idea where you guys even find those bugs, haven't seen almost any of those and i've played like ~50 games this patch.

    I think I've played around ~40 since Reborn has come out, maybe it's certain servers, who knows. I just know that it's definitely too often for my tastes and it's frustrating, especially when it does literally ruin the game, like the whole teammate still at level 1 thing. I mean, there's like an update every day I get on too which gets mildly annoying, granted I would rather they fix things as they find them, but it just feels way too often.

    Game one of ESL New York Secret vs Fnatic. Results was 2-1 to secret.
    Game three summed up nicely

    Beta [testing] is all about finding bugs and whatnot and fixing them. I actually haven't followed development process of Valve's other games but for DotA 2, it's quite successful. Blizzard and possibly Valve are companies with high production quality and I do not remember any bugs in WoD launch. There were server issues but not many bugs.

    I guess I shouldn't of even mentioned that, everything else I've been saying is current in the game issues.

    I mean, go into a match right now, try to change announcer packs. It doesn't work.
    If I was home, I'd show you my Crystal Maiden arcana statue, since CM herself is missing from it.

    If you're reaction is "well those are little bugs", then I'd respond "Then why are they even there? Why aren't they fixed yet?".

    And even then, that doesn't touch upon the fact that I had half of the 10 players in a match just drop off, my friend's Dota uninstall itself upon trying to play custom games, among other things.

    I knew one team would eventually do that, this new secret is so random and fun to watch.

    I've not been getting issues with freezing and such, but like everyone else I've been having problems with changing anouncers and the one with CM's Arcana. Nothing game breaking yet though, thankfully, but I do get graphical issues every other game, like WK's eyes glowing out of the back of his head for example.

    You're right it could have used another month or so in beta just to iron out the rest of the kinks before it was pushed to live. I know they wanted it to be released before the Majors, but it would have really benefitted from extra dev time before release.

    My experience so far, my biggest issue with it is that it's really unresponsive. If you spam click too much (like when last hitting), it seems to start dropping commands. There are times where I'll be spam clicking/stopping and then go to actually click on a creep to last hit and the hero does nothing, some that never happened in source 1. There's probably the #1 thing that pisses me off, and it causes me to lose kills and CS every single game I play now.

    Other than that, it's little things. Like the recent hitbox problems, the bugs with items/statues not showing up properly, pretty much every day there's something else they need to fix.

    Connection problems seem rampant still, though they don't affect me for whatever reason.

    Bug free software is not possible. I think we all know that. Fix time has something to do with their development cycle. Generally, non-game-breaking bugs are not fixed right away. They generally wait future patches and somtimes fixing trivial bugs is not priority.

    I didn't even had dcs in reborn beta. I suggest you to check official forums. All in all, Valve is pulling a HUGE project with success. I mean custom game tools, other development tools, these features will take a good portion of your development resources in addition to actual game itself.

    I've experienced (I think) that problem few times but it wasn't horrible. I am big fan of Reborn expansion because they increased games' longevity and old client was, well, shit. This is probably another reason why I look through a half-full perspective. Now I am wishing a clean and minimal UI change instead of archaic version we have now. They should take a look at LoL.

    VP pretty much disappointed. Legion pick was a mistake. Perhaps undying would make their lives easier.
