DOTA Changelog 6.33

* Added two new items
* Reworked/Improved Bristleback, Avernus and Mercurial
* Many code improvements
* New map preview picture by Artgerm
* Improved the game mode entering system. Modes are now entered on one line like "-apidsh" or "-dm -ar -sc". You do not need to worry about the order you enter the modes in, the game will handle it or warn you (and give you another chance) if the mode is incorrect/incompatible.
* Renamed shortmode to -easymode(-em)
* Added -samehero (-sh) mode
* Reduced Lycan's wolves' model size a bit
* Some -dmar hero respawn optimizations
* Reworked Mekansm a bit. It now has a larger aoe and buff duration but the heal only occurs if you have no previous Mekansm buff on you (so you can't mass spam it on a team).
* Furion's Teleportation now creates the same casting effect on the target location.
* Guinsoo's Scythe of Vyse total cost is the same, but 800 of the 900 recipe cost is now in Eul's Scepter of Divinity.
* Last Word will only work if Silencer is not silenced
* If blue isn't playing, the next available color will be allowed to enter the game mode.
* Restored a more functional -du mode
* Improved Viper's base damage a bit
* Enchant's duration when converting creeps is now increased
