Dota 2, Valve's own take on the famous Dota mod for Warcraft 3, has just received a fresh update for all platforms, bringing a long list of minor fixes.

The Dota 2 phenomenon is sweeping the globe and this game is the most played title on Steam, which says quite a lot about its popularity. Now Valve has issued yet another patch, this time to fix a number of smaller issues.

According to the changelog, the death and pause screens are no longer ignoring users’ video settings, the Frost Armor is no longer slowing the user during the attacks of allied units, the Lightning Bolt is no longer interrupting units when the ground has been targeted, and secondary bounces on Static Charge are now crediting the kill to the proper user.

Also, Spirit Form Scepter crashes have been fixed, a crash with Reaper’s Scythe has been fixed, the Static Charge is no longer hitting the primary attacker even if he was out of range, and a crash with Vengeance Aura has been corrected.

Dota 2’s Linux minimum system requirements are Ubuntu 12.04, dual-core processor from Intel or AMD at 2.8 GHz, 4GB RAM, 8GB hard drive space, nVidia GeForce 8600/9600GT, ATI/AMD Radeon HD2600/3600 (Graphic Drivers: nVidia 310, AMD 12.11), OpenGL 2.1, and OpenAL-compatible sound card.

More details about this update can be found on the official Steam website.
