The Feast of Abscession Update



With today's update, the butcher's got a whole new set of tools as the Pudge Arcana makes its grand debut. Featuring all-new custom animations and effects—including multiple Dismember animations, a Hook Streak counter, hundreds of new VO responses, and more—the Feast of Abscession gives Pudge a host of new ways to sink his hooks into all that fresh meat wandering the battlefield.

After the intense selection process that culminated in Pudge's slim Arcana Vote victory at The International, it seems only fair that the triumphant hero recognize his vanquished foe. With that in mind, Pudge can unlock a second style for his Arcana by winning 12 games when opposed by Rubick on the other team. Armed with his new hooks, and even new Rubick-specific VO responses, it's only a matter of time before the butcher collects his due.

Check out The Feast of Abscession Update page for more information on all this new Arcana has to offer.

The International 2018 Collector's Cache Call to Arms

Preparations are now underway for The International 2018, and this year's event will feature a subterranean theme. With that in mind, we invite all Dota 2 Workshop creators to dig into their cavernous imaginations for new treasures to include in this year's Collector's Cache. We're hoping to haul in a collection of items that are equally at home in the obsidian city of Aziyog as they are in the spore fields spreading beneath the Riftshadow Ruins.

To that effect, we are now officially accepting submissions from Community artists that will be considered for inclusion in The International 2018 Collector’s Cache. Don't feel restricted to heroes that already have an established subterranean connection—we're interested to see how you pile up as many designs as possible. As in the past, we would like to ask artists to avoid the use of any concepts that involve human skulls, blood, and gore.

Make sure to mark your submissions with the "Collector’s Cache 2018" tag when tendering items to the Workshop. All submissions must be on the Dota 2 Workshop by Sunday, May 13th. We encourage all Dota fans to regularly visit the Workshop and vote through the Queue to ensure your voices are heard in the selection process.

In the meantime, our merchandise partners are also ready to unearth some new designs for this year's Dota 2 merchandise release. If you've got a concept you think will resonate with fans, submit your design to the Workshop with the "Merchandise" tag and see how much community support you can mine.
