The newest Dota 2 patch is showing up soon, according to the video game’s evasive developer.

IceFrog dropped the news on Dota 2’s development forums last night, verifying that Spot 7.27 is in the works. Valve seems to be approaching the new patch in a similar pattern to current development. The upcoming update will initially “concentrate on item modifications, economy, and misc general modifications” before zeroing in on specific heroes.

While certain heroes have actually been dominating the meta, items such as Necronomicon and Helm of the Boss have actually genuinely been the stars of the program. Controlled creeps have actually ended up being a substantial part of group structure, with heroes’ stock going up and down depending upon how well they deal with the commonly termed “zoo technique.”

The prevalence of this strat originated from a requirement for groups to continuously amp up their aggressiveness to protect the numerous objectives on the map. Creeps and their powerful auras and spells are among the most greatest early-game spikes gamers can command due to percentage-based auras like Alpha Wolf and Kobold Supervisor.

The reduction of kill streak gold and experience has actually likewise helped decrease the impact of deaths, which further serves to reinforce an impassioned tempo that high-level players have cultivated recently.
