For those of you whose Compendiums have reached Level 4, you’re probably already familiar with the charming, blue-feathered Lieutenant Squawkins. Now Compendium owners who reach Level 24 will also gain access to a green-feathered Row Boat style. Additionally, when your Compendium reaches Level 41, you'll be able to use the luxury red-feathered Sail Boat version of the courier.
With this update, if you own or purchase a Compendium, you will receive your very own Pudgling, a cute yet still-revolting Mini-Pudge Courier. Not disgusting enough for you? If your Compendium reaches Level 50 then you'll also get his extra smelly alternate style. This upgraded version will also come with a classy golden hook.
Mere words cannot convey the true depth and breadth of your emotional response to the game of Dota. For that you need Dota-themed chat emoticons! And you need them to animate! These new emoticons work in-game and also in the dashboard chat rooms. Owning the Compendium gives you access to all 25 emoticons forever.
In Dota 2, it’s no longer just your prospects of victory that change like the weather. The weather can also change like the weather. Weather Effects are items you can equip to change the environment in your game. If you have a Compendium, then you'll immediately get all three of the in-game Weather Effects: Snow, Moonlight, and Rain.
The new Live Rewind feature is available today to all Dota 2 players and allows you to pause and rewind the game while spectating a live game. Whether you missed a team battle, or just want to replay a good fight, you’ll now be able to hop back in time and watch it all again and again.
