Version 1.0.5 - Pirate becomes a gladiator

Version 1.0.5 Changelog notes:

- "Report A Player" added
* Upper left on the System Bar, ! symbol
* Fill out the form to report another player for inappropriate actions
* False reporters will be punished

- Tons of tool tip updates and fixes
- Fixed a bug allowing Post Haste to teleport to couriers. Post Haste can teleport to player owned pets, such as War Beast's wolves
- Gave Vulture Lord's second ability an icon (means the aura no longer displays a black and white checkerboard)
- Stores will no longer remove the 'can buy from me' state if you or a courier goes invulnerable
- Decreased in-game font size slightly
- Added a new message when the courier is killed by a non-hero unit, it will now show a minimap ping along with the appropriate game message indicating which team the courier was killed by

- Fixed an issue where players would add a chat channel to auto connect to upon startup, and then later be unable to remove this channel from their list because they were banned from the channel. Players attempting to join channels they are set to auto connect to and are also banned from will have that channel automatically removed from their list if they attempt to connect to the channel they are banned from
- Pressing the "Alt" key (or whatever key the player has defined as chat_gameLobbyChatToggle) when in the game lobby will no longer toggle the chat type like it used to. It now must be held down and used in conjunction with the enter key, or with the mouse click of the "Send" button
- Fixed a Mac/Linux crash
- Fixed issue preventing players from selecting a potential hero during the banning phase.
- Disconnected players will no longer random when it becomes their turn to pick, unless they run out of time.
* Disconnected players are not allowed to use "extra time" in BP mode (if it is their turn, and they are disconnected, then they will pick their potential hero or a random hero)
- Fixed an issue in duplicate hero mode where if two players had the same hero "potentially" selected, only one would get it and the other would random
- Misc server optimizations to improve stability
- News is hidden when choosing to follow a player
- The client will no longer display a message indicating the player will get a leave for disconnecting if they are in a replay or a practice game
