Version 6.66

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki
[e][h]Version 6.66
Version Information
Release Date:
  • Balance Changes
  • Bug Fixes


  • Switch now only works as long as the items of the leaver remain intact. Once someone leaves, the inventory of that hero becomes locked. Players can use an -unlock command, but once that is done switch cannot be used on that hero anymore. Once this feature is used enough to be considered stable, switch will be usable by default (-so mode won't be required) with the restrictions described above. The gold that the leaver is carrying is also frozen until the hero is either unlocked or swapped.
  • Added a new command, "-controloff"/"-controlon", to disable control help in the game (to prevent stuff like adding summoned units to your current selection: Invoker, Techies, Lanaya, etc)
  • Added a new test command to toggle creeps spawn off and on -spawnoff/-spawnon
  • Restored -mc, but with more detailed statistics to match up with the recently changed Multicast chance system
  • To prevent some abuses with -unstuck, it no longer works if your taking damage during the first few seconds after you enter the command
  • Doubled Satyr Trickster mana pool and purge mana cost (primarily affects just stolen ability via Devour)
  • Fixed the teleport effects sometimes being visually on an angle
  • Fixed Nightcrawler status buff text format
  • Fixed Tango visual buff being slightly inaccurate (this is just a cosmetic improvement/fix)
  • Added a visual effect for allied players to indicate which creep you infesting
  • Added a new sound set for Furion (91160)
  • Added a new sound set for Clockwerk
  • Added a new visual effect for Spirit Lance
  • Added new charge icon for Soul Assumption (137459)
