    Broodmother Web Exploit / Server Crash

    Summary:
    Using dota_sf_hud_force_captainsmode 1, a player can switch heroes after they have spawned in before the 0:00 mark.
    This allows for multiple bugs to occur.

    You have to enable the console.

    Bug 1 - Summary: Broodmother webs after repicking to a new hero do not disappear and will remain in the location(s) placed at the start of the game.
    This allows for permanent vision of a rune spot and roshan the entire game without having broodmother in the game.

    Steps:
    1. Create a bind for dota_sf_hud_force_captainsmode 1 (console command eg. bind "F6" "dota_sf_hud_force_captainsmode 1"
    2. Select Broodmother
    3. Spawn in and place webs (such as in rosh pit or a rune spot)
    4. Before 0:00, use the bind for dota_sf_hud_force_captainsmode 1
    5. Repick to another hero
    6. Type dota_sf_hud_force_captainsmode 0 into console

    Results:
    The webs will remain where they were placed for the rest of the game without broodmother being in the game



    Bug 2 - Summary: Some abilities will crash the server when active while repicking

    Repro Steps:
    1. Have a bind for dota_sf_hud_force_captainsmode 1
    2. Pick a hero with a long spell that is usable on allies (Abaddon's spell shield is an easy spell to do this)
    3. Put the spell shield on an ally and quickly use the dota_sf_hud_force_captainsmode 1 bind and repick to a different hero
    -- this has to be done before the spell wears off--
    4. Type dota_sf_hud_force_captainsmode 0 into console

    Results:
    There will be an auto disconnect message and the server will crash



    note:
    It is possible to do this with a lot of other spells such as shadow demon's disrupt, clockwerk's cogs, pugna's ward, kunkka's X mark, etc.

    Don't forget to drop the items or don't buy any for that Broodmother. After the repick the items disappear.

    Still working after the latest patch (2013 10 07)

    PS: if you use items (like, buy courier) you can't repick.

    Now I see how lazy people from Valve are, can't fix those exploits... and I keep having the same bugs - such as item bug or shop bug. After shop the problem fixes itself by some time but that item bug I still need to restart the game.

    When you drag and cannot drop an item, the mouse is stucked, you're unable to move, cast spells, etc. Happened some weeks ago, the main problem atm is when I try to click on a reciept for example in a shop - it does nothing. You have to build everything manually. This is happening to me every time.
