Cheerful free to play MMO Dragonica has just received a big facelift courtesy of the Phoenix Update. The latest patch has sharpened up Draconica’s visuals and dungeons have been beefed up with extra difficulty modes and harder bosses for returning players.

You can check out the full feature list on the Phoenix update page on the official Dragonica site, and take a close look at those updated graphics in the trailer and screenshots below. It’s free to play, so you can download the client and jump in for nothing on the Dragonica site.

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.

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.
