With the Weplay! Bukovel Minor and the DreamLeague Season 13: Leipzig Major just on the horizon, Valve released the 7.23f patch for Dota 2 to balance the playing field before the DPC season resumes. 

With it, the developers weakened several heroes - including Doom, Drow Ranger, Tiny and Treant Protector. You can read the full patch notes HERE.

Teams react to the Patch

Pro teams were understandably not happy about this, considering the fact that some well-thought-out drafts and strategies might have been rendered useless by this patch.

  • Fnatic sympathised with the Minor attendees

  • Team Secret decided to meme it up with Gordon Ramsay

  • OG sent their regards to Minor attendees

  • Ninjas in Pyjamas couldn't hide their sarcasm.

  • LGD Gaming might be counting their lucky stars for missing this Minor

What was your reaction to the latest patch?? Do you think Valve should have delayed the patch or released it earlier? Rather than releasing it right before a Minor kicks off?
