After several months of speculation and vague references to when the most important patch will be released after 2018, we finally got a Valve certificate.
In a blog post published November 5 at Dota 2 website, Valve congratulated Tigers on winning DreamLeague's season 10. In the last line of posts, the developer suggested the release date of the patch.
Valve has rejected the bombs the fans have been waiting for for months, the long-awaited patch of 7.20 on November 19th – one day after Kuala Lumpur Major completes.
Kuala Lumpur Major, first 2018-19 Dota The Pro Circuit Season is from November 9th to 18th. He will see 16 teams fighting for $ 1 million and 15,000 DPC points. These points determine which teams will receive invitational invitations 2019, so the teams that get the majors usually have a very good target at entry.
This patch release date is perfect as it gives teams time to practice by using new changes before the next DPC event – The Bucharest Minor – January 9th. Metas will probably see the overhaul, which means that matches will involve a lot of experimentation until players understand what they are doing.
