ImageDota 2 receives another update bringing Outworld Destroyer and tons of interface updates and new game modes.

While everyone expected Bane Elemental to join our ranks, it is the Outworld Destroyer who comes to turn the Dota 2 community upside down. While a new hero is always a welcome addition, it is the updated interface and the new game modes that will bring the most joy to a lot of players. Finally -sd and -cm have been added for Matchmaking, and the -repick function was a much needed addition as well. You can now chat during pauses and the ability to jump to any position in a replay has been implemented.

Below, some of the changes:

- Enabled Outworld Destroyer!
- Added new game mode: Single Draft.
- Added querying of dead units. This lets you click allied portraits in the top bar to inspect their items and skills, even when they're dead.
- Queued move commands show a waypoint flag briefly.
- Added new settings panel.
- Matchmaking displays average wait time for each region.
- New interface for finding lobbies.
- New Matchmaking panel.
- Players can chat and use voice communications while the game is paused.
- Added game mode (AP, SD, CM) selection for matchmaking.
- You can now find replays by MatchID from the Watch panel.
- Added Grid Mode to the Shop.
- Added Repick functionality to the hero picking panel (costs 100 gold to repick, lets you select a hero again).
- Implemented "Suggest invite to party" menu option.
- You can now see which heroes your allies are about to pick.
- Added Steam avatars in the scoreboard.
- Added the ability to jump to any position in a replay.

SETTINGS
- Redesigned the setting panel to allow for more keybindings and options. You may need to rebind your keys.
- Updated all the keybindings to take advantage of the new settings panel.
- Added spectator keybinds.
- New key input code for spectator and alt-keys.
- Spectator and alt-keys now handle + binds correctly.
- Del, backspace, and backquote/tilde are now bindalbe (ie. console is bindable)
- Added courier, neutral and hero specific ability binds.
- Spectators now correctly get all active buffs and debuffs on heroes when joining a game in progress.

REPLAYS
- The replay format has changed and old replays are no longer viewable.
- Your own private games are now displayed in your match history.

VISUALS
- Added effect for Phase Boots and Fiery Soul.
- Made Dark Seer's illusion effect more differentiated from a normal illusion effect.
- Made all known illusions draw with a creep style healthbar. This does not effect enemy illusions, but does apply to Dark Seer's Wall of Illusion illusions.
- Crystal Maiden illusions will no longer play her custom death anim.
- Heroes now flail while getting force staffed.
