Greetings! Welcome to the latest official AI DotA custom map!
In this release a new item system is in place and all item builds were changed with new ones. Heroes learnt to use some of the new items. Numerous internal changes and tests were made, mostly not visible to the player. And don`t be wrong, countless of hours were spent coding and debugging those features so you can play that version! An enormous thanks to the AITeam and Cloud! Cheers.
Enjoy DotA v6.74c AI, codenamed HOPE! We HOPE that it works
