Dota 2 Patch 7.01: Push Strats Severely Overpowered?
Dota 2 Patch 7.01 has now been revealed and it addressed some of the common bug issues as well as the balance changes that all players have been waiting for - nerf on several overpowered heroes like the Monkey King and Visage. Although the tweaks can be seen as quite minor, Valve just buffed one of the best pushers in the game and is now a major threat in virtually any pub games. Here's how push strats became severly overpowered in patch 7.01.
Patch 7.01 Buff On Push Strats
Nature's Prophet - the guardian of the forest is considered as one of the most annoying heroes to play against due to its potential omnipresent capability. Added to that is the fact that the hero can spawn multitudes of creeps which can easily demolish the enemy base. Now, the recent 7.01 update even buffed his summoned creeps which basically doubled his threat in the meta. Here's the full changes:
Nature's Prophet Level 15 Talent increased from +10 Intelligence to +15
Nature's Prophet Level 15 Talent increased from +15 Movement speed to 20
Nature's Prophet Level 25 Talent increased from -35s Respawn Time to -40
Nature's Prophet Level 25 Talent changed from +6 treants to 2x Treants HP/Damage
Now, as you can see, the last change dramatically improves his overall pushing capabilities during the late game. Added to this is the fact that there are numerous heroes that can take full advantage to these changes. Here are some Heroes in particular:
Lycan - with the recent rework on Howl, Lycan is now even deadlier when pushing and with the buff on treants, it simply makes ratting (counter push) a lot easier to do as you can basically demolish your enemy's buildings before your enemy can even deal a significant amount of damage to your own base.
Clinkz - Clinkz is also one of the best pushers in the game as the hero is capable of sieging enemy buildings in the blink of an eye. Now, what's even more terrifying is the fact that if you have Nature's Prophet in your team and he managed to get a Mega Treant, Clinkz can easily Death Pact the unit and instantly gain a whopping +300 damage and roughly +2k HP! Can push strats be any deadlier than this?
Necrophos - Necrophos recently gotten huge buffs coming into patch 7.00 but the hero was temporarily removed from CM. But in patch 7.01, Valve decided to add Necrophos in CM making him fully available in the competitive scene. It would be interesting to see how professional players will synergize Necorphos with the above mentioned heroes to make one unstoppable death ball.
