When Faceless Void won the Model Update vote in last year’s Compendium for The International, we admit we were a bit unsure about how to proceed. After exploring a number of different directions, we ultimately weren’t confident that the community would be happy with a significant redesign, since it seemed like a lot of people enjoyed the general idea of the existing model. When we turned to the community, we learned that for the most part people were not looking for drastic design changes.

However, some of the early redesign concepts were pretty interesting:

Faceless Elf

  • Pro: Attractive. Chiseled abs. Great-looking hair.
  • Con: No one would want to play as any other hero

Faceless Rex

  • Pro: Would be popular with sought-after archeologist demographic
  • Con: Is large purple dinosaur — too lovable?

Faceless Lobster

  • Pro: Adds exciting new Lobstoid race to Dota lore
  • Con: Looks too much like Dragon Knight

Awesome-to-11-year-olds-in-the-1980’s Void

  • Pro: Combines best parts of every animal
  • Con: Too subtle

Facefull Void

  • Pro: Finally has a face
  • Con: Oh God what were we thinking
