Dota 2 7.zero makes sweeping modifications to the MOBA. Oh, and delivers Sun Wukong.
Dota 2 is in for a severe shakeup with the subsequent main replace, 7.zero.
The modifications wrought by Dota 2 7.zero are so huge Valve has damaged them down into 5 separate intel drops, gathered collectively in The New Journey data hub.
While the headline addition of Sun Wukong to Dota 2’s roster is massive information, and the brand new HUD and different whizz bang options are nicely price diving into, what actually pursuits me is that Valve is unafraid to stay its oar in and meddle with a meta that’s been evolving for years and years.
The two main modifications on this space are the addition of expertise timber for every character and changes to maps. You can examine these and in addition some common steadiness modifications coming to Dota 2 on The New Journey – Gameplay web page.
To be frank, I simply don’t know sufficient about Dota 2 to actually touch upon how vital that is going to be, and I received’t embarrass us all by making an attempt – however my Twitter feed has been in an uproar all weekend over it. I can’t inform if the consensus is “jolly good” or “abandon ship”; there’s a particular flavour of “wait and see”.
Valve has finished a fairly job because the custodian of Dota’s legacy to this point, turning it into one of many most-played video games on Steam and fielding huge tournaments with record-setting prize swimming pools. Is it naive to belief it to not chop the legs off its personal money cow?
