Fogged’s summary of patch note reading was accurately summed up in this tweet.
2 hours into reading the patch notes, not even halfway FeelsGoodMan— Ioannis Loucas (@Foggeddota) October 30, 2017
Fly is really baffled by all the changes, not surprising, considering that he will be drafting for OG at the DotaPit Minor starting tomorrow!
A whole new world... A magic place I never knew. Welcome to dota 2— Tal Aizik (@Fly_dota2) October 30, 2017
Saksa maybe taking a break from competitive Dota, but his plans to hit 10kmmr seem to now have been put on hold
When u've been trying to get 10k and then they rework the ranked matchmaking system xd— Saksa (@Saksadota) October 31, 2017
Sumail definitely loves the new patch, with new items and changes could we see his infamous Storm Spirit making a comeback?
However his teammate didn’t seem so sure!
This patch is so great, I LOVE YOU ICEFROG!!!!!!!!!— Sumail (@SumaaaaiL) October 31, 2017
Optic’s Zai, added salt to the injury with this taunt as well

Complexity’s offlaner Moo describes Beastmaster’s changes perfectly. It’s one of his top heroes and his HotD build could soon be very popular on the hero.
Analyst/Color commentator William ‘Blitz’ Lee was still too hungover from the ESL afterparty when the patch notes were initially out.
But he sobered up to hate on the new hero, Dark Willow
I’d stream patch note but I’m pretty sure I’m still drunk maybe tomorrow— Blitz (@Blitz_DotA) October 31, 2017

There was some support for Pangolier however, but the best one comes from reddit user u/anoori9000 who uses the update to raise awareness towards Pangolin trafficking.
SK Gaming's captain and top proffesional Counter Strike player Gabriel 'Fallen'Toledo also got in on the hype!
But things were falling apart for Maelk who was still figuring out how to get into into the game
Dota 2 won't start after the update. Verifying Game Cache doesn't help.— Jacob Toft-Andersen (@TheMaelk) November 1, 2017
