    I'm fine with everything but the hood really.
    It looks like Nyx riding a horse on the pickscreen.

    At what levels people start playing "like pro's"? I mean, play as supports on support heroes, ward critical spots, de-ward, sentry against invis heroes, block spawns, farm forest during the laning phase instead of taking farm from a carry on the safe lane, build mek/pipe if needed, don't push mindlessly all the time, etc. It's not like I'm losing too much (currently at 53% winrate), but it's really disheartening to see people losing their lane (and then the game) simply because they don't do those obvious things.

    Well depends on what playing "like a pro" involves when it comes to pub games. There are good players who don't care and just pick whatever carry (often you'll get 3-4 of these in a game), then there are good players who look at the team comp or other teams comp and pick accordingly. As long as you get 2-3 people of the latter (with the other 2 immediately picking random carry) then the game usually goes pretty well.

    I hope some pro artist makes an awesome skin for Abaddon in workshop. The horse is alright, but I want a sword instead of some kind of mace/scepter. :/

    it is a sword
    but afaik blade is only visible when you have enemies in LOS otherwise you can see only hilt which looks like mace

    Well I guess that's cool. But I would like it more if the blade was visible at all times but it glows like crazy when enemies are close, lord of the rings style.

    But it looks pretty cool anyway so not too bad.

    Speaking of... MWM seeking stack buddies for dota (US TZ)

    Primarily play gank/roamer/initiator and occasionally carry, semi decent support.

    you can still see the whole sword, the blade is just sticking through the horse. you can see the end protruding from what looks like the horse's head

    Wonder if this abaddon sword feature will work if invisible hero approaches him

    From that video it seems that it only appears if there is an enemy on-screen, which would actually be a great way for invis heroes to see if Abaddon's team has detection.

    It works like every other stance in the game, such as Juggernaut changing how he holds his sword when enemies are near, which is to say it only works on visible enemies that aren't hiding in fog.

    Does anyone else have their client update stop at 15%?

    Edit: Nevermind, it started again. Abaddon time!
