After a few hours since DotA 6.74b, there is a new version that is correcting just a single bug.
“Fixed Flamebreak not functioning properly with creeps”.
This fix comes after Icefrog has changed these two features: “Flamebreak not interrupting channeling” and “Fixed Flamebreak affecting Magic Immune units”.

The third version of DotA 6.73 was released a few minutes ago, after the first map that was released before Christmas, followed a few days later by the 6.73b that fixed a few bugs and removed the Santa Pudge skin.
Since the winter holidays are over, the Christmas and the holiday graphic elements have been removed from the new map. A few technical optimizations have been made but the map file still has around 7 – 8 megabytes.
Regarding the fixes, there are 14 fixes for the 6.73c map, some regarding heroes and some regarding the new items that were introduced in 6.73.

Most likely, this map will be the last 6.73 map. We will see if there will be another release for the Warcraft 3 map since DotA 2 will be released soon and the community might move there.
Have a nice winter all!

It seems that DotA 6.73 will be released in a few hours. Getdota.com can’t be accessed at this time, probably because of the high amount of traffic generated by the new map.
The download link for the 6.73 map is not available at the moment and neither the changelog file as playdota.com can’t be accessed as well.
We will update as soon as the map will become available and we will offer a download link from a our fast mirror.
Since tomorrow is Christmas, the 6.73 map could be a season map with some Christmas elements, the same as the maps that have been released in the previous years.
Update. Download DotA 6.73 from here, free, very fast server. The changelog is available and there are four new heroes and around five new items. Almost all the heroes have received certain changes, buffs or nerfs.
There are even some Christmas elements, a Pudge Christmas skin, new theme for the map named “CM skin”, probably CM is coming from Christmas.
Merry Christmas all!
