new Dota 2 update Newbee

Just as The International 2019’s Qualifiers completed in the early hours of the morning, Valve released a new Dota 2 gameplay update (7.22e). This is probably not the last Dota 2 gameplay update with some balance changes as the developer gets everything ready for the biggest esports tournament of the year. In this update, Valve has made some balance changes to over 40 heroes and nerfed two items just a bit.

Let’s kick things off with the items. Both Maelstrom and the Stout Shield has seen minor nerfs, which you can check out below.

  • Stout Shield: No longer stacks (only one chance attempt)
  • Maelstrom: Chain Lightning damage reduced from 160 to 150

The item nerfs, just like the hero balance changes, might not seem like a lot but it is so easy for heroes to fall out of the meta after a small nerf or two as every little stat counts. We see various nerfs and buffs, from talent tree adjustments to skill adjustments. Luna might reemerge as a contested carry after three buffs to her talent tree, while Bloodseeker should have an even better early game if it does get picked up in pro games.
