Last-Minute Dota 2 Update: A Blessing or a Curveball?

Dota 2 Patch 7.34d Goes Live Days Before The International 2023

The big Dota 2 event, The International, is starting soon, and Valve just dropped a new game update. This has left players with mixed reactions. Here’s the scoop on this new update.

Valve put out a new update for Dota 2, called 7.34d, just eight days before The International 2023 starts. Even though this update fixes some game problems, a lot of people are wondering if the timing was right.

The International is the top Dota 2 event of the year. Dropping an update so close to it can be tricky for players. But on the bright side, this update might stop us from seeing the same old hero choices over and over in the games.

So, what's in this update?

This update, 7.34d, is the closest one to The International in recent times. Mastering the game, especially for pros, takes time. That's why big updates are usually given way before big tournaments.

But Valve surprised everyone by releasing an update just eight days before The International 12. It's not the largest update, but it does tweak many heroes, making some stronger and others weaker.

For instance, heroes like Phantom Assassin and Sven got nerfed. But heroes like Weaver, Luna, and Enigma got a buff.

To get into details, this update changed 53 heroes, five items, and three neutral items. Players will need time to get the hang of all these changes before the big event.

With The International just around the corner, all teams will be diving into these updates, trying to find ways to use them to their advantage in the games. This adds a bit more excitement before The International 12 starts.
