* ObviousRulePatch: Low Priority queue is supposed to be used to punish players who either troll other people or they constantly abandon games that are going on right now. Unfortunately, players still chose to troll other player by either griefing, or trash talking other and after number of games, they got out of it without consequences. So Valve gradually makes the Low Priority punishment harsher and harsher from requiring into a set number of games played, disabling co-op bots counting as a match, to requiring a set number of wins in order to get out of such queue.

** One of the changelogs for 7.07 is that a player can now only own 1 animal courier per game and are automatically upgraded after 3 minutes. Unfortunately that opens for easy griefing abuse when someone could just buy a courier but rather than activating it, they would just drop it and deny the unopened courier, causing the player to permanently lose the courier and can no longer obtain them for the rest of the game. This is eventually patched out by making the courier automatically summoned upon being purchased and just for further safety, make them unable to be destroyed or sold should a player purchased it outside the fountain.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Just as [[LightIsNotGood the Radiant heroes aren't necessarily good guys]], certain Dire heroes can be good people. Some of them, such as Abaddon and Clinkz, are almost purely heroic other than their creepy appearance, and others such as Sand King or Spectre are closer to neutral than evil.

* LightIsNotGood: Despite the use of light and bright colours compared to the Dire, the only thing that the Radiant is 'good' at is environmental friendliness, if the status of Radiant trees compared to Dire trees is anything to go by.

%%* DarkIsEvil[=/=]DarkIsNotEvil: This game is an example where being Dire doesn't always mean you'll always be some baby-eating bastard, when compared to the old one.
%%** On the obviously black scale of morality, there's Night Stalker who eats people and wants to bring TheNightThatNeverEnds, the 'Demon trio' taken straight from Hell: Shadow Fiend, Shadow Demon and Doom, and horrible demons on their own such as Terrorblade and Pugna. And then there's {{Eldritch Abomination}}s such as [[YourWorstNightmare Bane]] and [[EvilIsDeathlyCold Ancient Apparition]].
%%** On the light scale, there's Abaddon, [[TheSacredDarkness who is only dark in appearance, but noble in the most part]], Spectre who only wants to go back to her own home, Visage who is just keeping the dead, Magnus, Clinkz and Lycan who are better described as wandering victims of circumstance, and Arc Warden who wants to put an end to the war between the Ancients all together, either through the unification or destruction of both sides.
%%** On the middle of the scale, there's Broodmother who, while certainly villainous and probably slightly close to the black side of morality, only wants to protect her spiderlings and would leave the surface dwellers alone if she wasn't provoked, and Axe, who is really just seeking adventure and battle (and is also looking to sell books based off of said adventures).

** DevelopersForesight has that covered. If you come from ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'', you can enable an option to use the old ''Warcraft III'' hotkeys; if you come from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', you can enable Instacast (''LOL'''s Smartcast), bind your TP Scroll item slot to D and your Blink Dagger item slot to F (both common hotkey bindings for ''LOL'''s Teleport and Flash), and place the minimap on the right side.

* PermanentlyMissableContent: Every year during The International event, you are given the option to purchase a Battle Pass for unique and exclusive items such as Terrains, Hero Sets and even an Arcana. But the kicker is that fir some items, if you missed some of the items or you weren't there at the International event, you will never be able to obtain the items anymore as some of the items, like Io Arcana are neither tradeable nor marketable and you won't be able to purchase battle pass levels once the International ends.

* BrainsEvilBrawnGood: The most evil and outright {{Jerkass}}ish ones in general tend towards being Intelligence ones such as Lion, Invoker, Zeus, Shadow Demon, and Oracle while the majority of the truly "heroic" figures are strength heroes such as Sven, Omniknight, Abaddon, Magnus, and Elder Titan.

Back when the game's heroes were [[TheArtifact still classified as either Radiant or Dire]], the Radiant had more Strength Heroes, while the Dire had more Intelligence ones, further playing into this.



*** If Magnus's stun is not enough, Ember Spirit could be a very effective replacement, his ''Sleight of Fist'' lets him deal massive damage to groups with Cleave, Magnus's ''Empower'' being worth more than a Battle Fury and boosting attack damage on top of that, can potentially result in a OneHitPolykill as all those overlapping cleaves can easily shred through entire teams.

** Techies has ''Suicide Squad, Attack!'' which deals so much damage (650 composite damage!) that it can one hit kill most enemy heroes in a single explosion at level 1, often resulting in a first blood for Techies. Which is cool, awesome and scary until you realize that Techies has the ''SLOWEST'' movement speed of 270, just 10 less than Crystal Maiden, and the ability is activated at ''point blank range'', meaning that he will pretty much never move close enough to get a first blood on his own unless he manages to take someone by complete surprise. Cue Tiny, who can use ''Toss'' to throw Techies right on top of some poor victim.



* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Most heroes never called by their name in-game, not even in any voice lines either because it is obscure, have the names removed for copyright reasons or have the misfortunate timing of being DummiedOut in their responses.

* RyuAndKen: As in the Original Dota, players could only pick Sentinel or Scourge (renamed Radiant and Dire for Dota 2) heroes when on that side, alot of them were largely equal to each other, such as Lina and Lion, Sven and Magnus, Omniknight and Abaddon, and others. DivergentCharacterEvolution has ''completely'' changed most of these heroes (Magnus and Sven don't even fall into any of the same roles anymore).

* TeamSpirit: Teamwork and Communication trumps nearly everything else, a properly co-ordinated team will usually beat one with a higher APM because while their enemies trip over each other and blame each other for any mistakes, they'll be comboing their abilities, and keeping each other updated on possible enemy gank attempts. Knowing how to properly treat a childish, crybaby or raging teammate or tilt an enemy player and cause their team to bicker among themselves can do a long way towards improving your MMR.
