- Troll Warlord: Added a "fast" attack animation that will only trigger when his attack speed is above 210
- Fixed Orchid disabling Dagger at the end of its duration even if it was doing no damage.

UI
- Updated look of the combat log and added language localization.

- The Game End panel now shows team names for games with teams.

VISUALS
- If Keeper of the Light dies with Recall active, the visual effect is now removed.

BOTS
- Fixed bots not considering Phantom Lancer a hard carry.
- Fixed VS bot not having a large enough item build list.
- Bots will no longer dust Doppelwalk because it's sneaky.
- Bots will no longer buy invisibility detection for an enemy's item until they see that item in an enemy's inventory.
- Made Zeus bot slightly more likely to use Wrath of the Thundergod.
- When a player connects, we now only disable/make invulnerable heroes on the opposing teams (not units with bots like the Warlock Golem).

    After hearing Tusk's responses, I have to say, this could be some of the worst voice acting I have ever heard. It's so bad. Yikes!

      lol you'll probably hate it that they made a Tusk announcer and some of someone with a cool voice xD

      I already know that he was the announcer in the Greevling event. I thought it was terrible then, and I was shocked to hear it now. The voice acting is just bad. It's boring and tries too hard to be something. Can't put my finger on what though. The way he likes to end words in "ah"s is enough to stop me from ever playing Tusk.
