Games are now needlessly long.
1. Remove the carousels. It's wasting so much time and just random picking.
2. Just have everyone start with 5-10 gold and let them buy the first hero they want.
3. Let everyone pick one item out of 3-5 at the start.
4. increase the item drops to compensate items from carousel.
5. Remove the useless "against bots" rounds, no fun there just waste of time.
You can easily shave off at least 10-15 minutes of the games
