    Dota1 Patch Discussion

    Discuss patches here

    A huge patch has just been released: 6.74 for DotA.
    Some pretty huge balance changes, including certain heroes getting skills replaced with complete new ones.



    Definitely can recommend all of us to read through it so we know what's coming up!

    Looks great to me!
    Hope to see it hit Dota 2 soon

    Re: Dota Patch Discussion

    Why would Broodmother need changes?

    Ursa is indeed OP in pubs :S , but he's never picked in competitive.

    Pubstompers will stomp. There is always a pubstomper character in the game, slowly people will learn how to counter ursa effective and another pubstomper will arise.

    Yeah, maining broodmother, so possible bias, but I can't see anything wrong with her. She's powerful at pushing, and can gank well if she gets the farm, which again isn't the hardest farm.

    HOWEVER, she's one of those characters you get dust of appearance or such for, at which point she becomes a bit meh. She becomes easy to gank and slow down a lot at that point. She also isn't the most useful in teamfights.

    Note, this is DotA2's, having not played original.



    So... on the DotA/DotA2 thing... is DotA2 going to actively compete with DotA or what? 'Cos I gather they're still bringing everything across from DotA, and then they are going to change it and make it it's own game... but yeah, does that mean these changes will actually make it to DotA2? Or for heroes already in game, will they stay as they are, and just be modified as things go?

    Re: Dota Patch Discussion

    The counter of dust to Brood is normal, every hero will be counter-able by something, that's why brood needs a lot of farm.

    DotA and Dota 2 aren't competing, DotA's content will be copied to Dota 2 and IceFrog has said he'll keep DotA alive next to Dota 2 as long as people are playing it and the update limit isn't reached (9,6 of 10mb atm).

    These patch changes will most likely come to Dota 2 asap, just like Patch 6,73 came to Dota 2 quite fast 3 months ago

    Cheers. I'm still hoping for things like visible mana bars though...

    Wont happen probably, just like you need to click on someone to see his items instead of just a score screen like LoL did very well.

    However it wonders me, if they bring these changes to DotA2 aswell wouldn't they be unbalanced? As the current balances in DotA1 is with all the characters in the game and dota2 still lacks quite a few heroes.

    Re: Dota Patch Discussion

    Yea showing mana/items really indirectly nerves / buffs quite a few heroes.
    Don't see it happening anytime soon seeing the implications it will have on the balance of the game.

    Re: Dota Patch Discussion

    Yeah, but I think it's a change they should make. It's meant to be it's own game, I have nothing against them balancing again for things like that

    Everything in DotA is based on all the heroes being in the mix...so by that logic it's already unbalanced

    Re: Dota1 Patch Discussion

    Apocalypse I intentionally didn't put a 1 or 2 in the title because then we don't need to make a new thread every time a patch arrives for Dota 1 or 2..

    but they're two different games and its the Dota2 section.

    Was initially puzzled by a non-thursday patch until i got as far as centaur warchief and realised what was goin on

    Re: Dota1 Patch Discussion

    Yeah, I was also very confused at first, the clarification is useful. 2 threads is easy enough to have.

    Re: Dota1 Patch Discussion

    Ok guys if you prefer it this way
    I don't really see the point though seeing as every DotA 1 change will come to Dota 2 within a few weeks, gameplay wise they'll be identical, think 2 threads is more confusing
