Version 6.69 nearing release
Icefrog's planned release date will preempt the upcoming SMM and WDC tournaments by a good margin, as he revealed that the version will arrive within the next one to two weeks. According the blog post, the primary purpose of version 6.69 will be balance and gameplay improvements, while new content will follow in version 6.70.
This impending release date appears to be later than originally planned, as Icefrog in his blog states that the development of this particular iteration of DotA had taken him longer than expected.
Let us know your predictions and expectations for 6.69; e.g. which heroes should be nerfed, buffed, tweaked, and if you think the upcoming tournaments should adopt the new version.
