Old heroes may make appearances in the fun tavern
Invoker will be in the fun tavern for a version or so
This release is geared towards being the tournament version

In response to questions/comments:
Just because a heroes moved to this tavern doesn't not mean in any way that he won't make it back. It is mostly temporary. Most new heroes will also make a stop there for a version before coming to main, to help map stability.

A hero with 27 abilities should have been placed in this type of tavern to begin with. He isn't moved here due to balance, its due to potential bugs, as with any hero with 27 abilities may have. After a version or so, he will be restored. Don't worry

He was NOT moved because he was imbalanced, he wasn't. He was also not moved due to "newbs crying" like some of you put it. Most of the people who had a say in him being moved were highly skilled recognized players in the community. He was moved instead of removed completely because there are still techie lovers. I will consider a -nf mode that some of you suggested for a future version.

I don't think he was or is too str
