Hey, welcome to our second unofficial dota 2 workshop friendly competition (because huge names are cool)
This month we will work with the 3 most voted heroes on the pool
the pool this month was"heroes that doesnt have any set"
the idea of the competition is to create item´s in a friend environment and with the feedback of the other participants get the best result possible
there is no prize, is just and excuse to work and get everyone motivated
everything that is accepted by the workshop could be part of this competitions: solo items, sets, couriers and wards (announcers?) (huds?)
-Solo item (dont need to be part of a set)
-newcomer item (just for the first submition on the workshop)
- open for teams of any size
- open for every acceptable item on the workshop
- everyone should keep posting feedback on other works
- the final submition need to be based on one of the heroes on the list or be a wearable item for that hero
- it must be submitted to the workshop before the deadline
- the deadline is the last day of the month at 23:59
**on the last day of the january, the dota update came with a set for Queen of Pain, which goes in the opposite direction of the rule for this month "heroes without sets"
the 4th place was shared by Nyx and Spectre but Nyx also got a set on the same update which lead us to add Spectre as our third hero
Keeper of the light

Wow, that's really awesome. Please keep us at Valve informed so we can help draw attention to the winners, progress threads, etc.
Try to give some attention to heroes that are under-served so far (in terms of amount of content).
The success of sets tracks well with the popularity of the hero. (Although popularity can vary between updates and as Icefrog changes balance.)
Look for heroes that the community seems to have trouble creating content for. Good work can really open up the design landscape and help people think about the dynamic range of potential designs.
Don't forget about single items (instead of full sets). Many of the most popular items in the game are single items. Mounts and weapons make good candidates for this, but it varies by hero.
Mix up these approaches. So maybe one month you do a popular hero and another month you do a hero that has few items.
I love you guys for doing this! Dota2 is my favorite game at the moment and Polycount is my favorite community! I'm very proud to be apart of such dedicated artists and I smile every time I see some Polycount work in game
