Dota 2 patch boosts bots, tweaks attack desire, defend desire, Roshan desire

There is no desire more potent than Roshan desire as Dota 2's bots learned this weekend with the arrival of a new patch designed to make them smarter. Their eagerness to take on the giant lizard monster deep in Dota 2's jungle will now be dependent on their proximity to said giant lizard monster. If you kill Roshan three times, he drops "cheese." It's best not to contemplate what exactly this "cheese" is, but I like to think that it's a vessel designed to trap Roshan's raging soul in the confines of a highly portable dairy product. A Roshan Babybel, essentially.

Understandably, bots have been reluctant to eat this "cheese," until this latest patch. This is a good change for them, though, as the Roshan Babybel delivers an unrivalled instantaneous boost to health and mana when consumed. Discover more about the tweaks to Dota 2's bots, and scan the latest bug fixes in the latest patch notes below.

This short but sweet Skyrim trailer shows the transition from concept art to in-game locations, mostly showing epic statues and a swift glimpse of the Dark Brotherhood. Sinister cowls: CONFIRMED. We get to see a new magical creatures, including a fire nymph and a big, steaming automaton. Then, at the very end, a sketch of some meat. Mammoth meat: CONFIRMED. We'll be gobbling up those big woolly elephants on November 11 when Skyrim is released.
