We know that the W3 TFT engine is limited in several aspects. Because of this, some things aren't possible. For example, Luna can't use most orb effects; you can't stack Vanguard with Kraken Shell; Linkens' Sphere doesn't block some spells; etc.

Freed from W3 TFT engine, these things will be possible in Dota 2.

We know for a fact that most of the things will not change at all, but there are space to make things work as they should (for example, Linkens' Sphere). So, I ask thee: will these details change? If yes, how they'll affect the game?

I hope not. I like the game the way it is.

I wonder if aggro mechanics will change. Drawing aggro by targeting your allies, or resetting tower aggro by targeting your creeps seems a bit gimmicky. If it was a new game, stuff like that probably wouldn't be there..

If such small things change, I will not play the game... Those little things are what make DotA special compared to HoN and LoL..... And I'm sure Icefrog isn't stupid, so I doubt they will change...

Really? From an eSport perspective, I'd prefer the game to be as 'clear' as possible. Having the competition revolve around the strategical and tactical aspects, rather than tiny gimmicky things which are easy to learn but far from obvious.

I don't know - seems strange

Not sure if it's a wc3 limitation or if IceFrog wanted it to be like this, but maybe Pudge and VS will be able to use Kelen's Dagger.

I believe it's because you don't want those heroes to place people on cliffs..

I'm pretty sure almost everything will not change.

But I'm also pretty sure that Linkens' Sphere will work as it should (no more not blocking some spells because of W3 engine)

I think this is one of the changes I would tolerate.
