Dota 2 gets a bunch of spectator HUD updates for the International

The Dota 2 International 2021 Championships cometh. The biggest annual event in the MOBA game's calendar kicks off early next month and Valve has now unveiled its plans for ticket sales to the live tournament and updates coming to Dota 2's spectator HUD for those that won't be there in person. Valve has revealed in a blog post that it's giving the game's spectator features a good going over to improve the experience of tuning into the action, replays, and overwatch cases. "We've given the spectator HUD a timely refresh that touches on status indicators, info graphs, camera options, and playback controls," the studio explains. Updates across status indicators include a new countdown for the Roshan timer, the ability to ping Aegis to broadcast the time remaining to allies, and item panel displays that show neutral items and which players have got Aghanim's Scepter and Aghanim's Shard. Graph improvements include a new 'momentum indicator' that makes clear which team's performance is increasing the most over the previous two minutes of gameplay time. Camera changes include an override option that lets you move it in "non-free camera modes" when you'd like to take a peek at other portions of the map, which switches back to your chosen camera mode after a brief delay, as well as a handy new 'directed cam' feature that "lets you click on heroes to temporarily select them as the subject of your focus".
