Valve Rolls Out Dota 2 Patch
Dota 2 version 7.00 has just been released. The update, according to gamers, felt like the biggest update yet since it is way beyond balance and graphical tweaks. Valve previously promised that the new heroes will be added post Dota 2 reaching parity with predecessor. Although the promise took awhile to manifest, Dota 2 7.00 version brought it in with Monkey king.
Dota 2 analysts say that it made sense why Valve had to wait to make new characters get in; they waited for all of the previous ones to be implemented in the Dota 2. Majority of the game's design work were already done, and that this saved them from fans' looking for Arc Warden, Winter Wyvern, and Techies.
