This probably sounds unnecessarily harsh, but we`re on a deadline, trying to get a version ready for IGS and right now bugs/balance take priority. Hopefully Bloodseeker will get re-added in a version soon. Chen: bugs weren`t an issue so much as lack of originality + annoyance. His ultimate had to be one of the least-liked spells ever introduced. Morphling: yeah, I`m really sad but we ended up removing Spellsteal. It afforded a lot of troubles, and we decided that it was just too much trouble to cope with. We actually are at a complete loss as to a 4th skill for him; right now he can just get 4 more levels of stats because he cannot reasonably use anything else: attack bonuses he doesn`t need, defense bonuses he doesn`t need since he keeps Blink, more nuking he doesn`t need, superior farming he doesn`t need...etc etc. We decided 4 more levels of stats is all he wants anyway.
