So, what do you think now? Are you satisfied with the new looks or did you wait even greater changes? Like total remodeling for some heroes? Well either way, VALVe seems to take the community seriously even from the early beginning and I believe this is a very important thing to note here. The game is not even out yet and VALVe is remodeling all of their models based on our feedback! This is impressive!
