Dota 2 was gradually changed by patches ever since the MOBA game was released by Valve. A couple of major patches were released in 2017 and one of the most important one continues to produce effects. Patch 7.07 has been around for two months and players agree that it has changed the game for the better. Some heroes benefited greatly from these changes, while some were nerfed, but balance was preserved.
Medusa, Tiny, Morphling, Anti-Mage have suddenly become more attractive for players who wanted to try something new. Those who are already relying on these heroes are more effective on the field of battle and can extract more from their characters. This is precisely the purpose of the new patch, which was supposed right from the start to make several characters more desirable.
Valve Performs a Balancing Act
As always, while some players were thrilled with the new changes, the boosted heroes were heavily criticized by a part of the community. As a result, Valve has just introduced a new patch which is going to reduce these buffs on Medusa and Morphling. The video game developers are taking their cues from amateur and professional players, but also the results at major competitions. The performance of top teams at The Summit 8 and Mars Dota 2 League Macau helped them make up their minds.
While the aforementioned characters have been hit the hardest, they are still competitive and much appreciated by a significant percentage of the community. Elsewhere, Enigma, Dazzle and Chen benefited from some small buffs while Night Stalker, Tinker, and Broodmother were slightly nerfed.
