Analyst and streamer Yaroslav NS Kuznetsov believes that Valve has released only half of the patch for Dota 2. The second part of the update, presumably, will be released in a week. In addition, a Christmas event can be added to the game with him. Vladimir No [o] ne Minenko also announced that Valve will release another patch on December 24th. On a personal broadcast, he said that with him the MOBA developers will change the economy, as well as the landscape of the map.
Yaroslav NS Kuznetsov:
There are no changes in the patch regarding the map, economy and general balance, there are only changes to heroes and items. For such a global patch, this is not typical as much as possible, any major update is not complete without dozens of general changes, but here they are no such changes. Actually the question is where did they get lost? The answer will probably come in the next patch.
Vladimir No [o] ne Minenko:
“All the same, it will get fixed or nerfed. Nowadays, in general, we get fun games. Purely fun and more learning, more or less getting used to new things. There will also be a patch after that in a week. I was told that they will nerf the economy, change the landscape – there will be a new game. “
On the night of December 18, patch 7.28 was released. With him, a new hero Hoodwink appeared in the game, as well as a number of items, including Aghanim’s Shard, which gives additional skills or other bonuses. In addition, the developers have revised the characteristics of many characters and artifacts.
Valve has previously released two-part patches. In the summer of 2020, the authors of Dota 2 first changed the characteristics of items and general mechanics with update 7.27, and later made changes to the balance of heroes in version 7.27b of the game.
