Patch 7.34


According to a recent announcement on the Dota 2 blog, patch 7.34 will release before The Internationa (TI) Regional Qualifiers in August.
The patch will be the next iteration of Dota 2 gameplay patches, following the massive 7.33 update that brought significant changes to the game.
Valve has also recently released a small 7.33e balance patch which made changes to 11 heroes.

Some exciting news has surfaced for the Dota 2 community as the new update post on the Dota 2 page had a small piece of text, announcing that Patch 7.34 will be released before the start of The International Regional Qualifiers in August. 

This announcement has sparked speculation among players and fans, hinting at the potential for significant gameplay changes in the upcoming patch. 

A Possible Major Gameplay Patch 

The announcement of Patch 7.34 arriving before the Regional Qualifiers suggests that the update could be a significant gameplay patch. This anticipation arises from the previous release, Patch 7.33, which brought about some of the most significant changes Dota 2 has seen in recent years.

The recent 7.33e balance patch

In other news, Valve also released a very recent 7.33e balance update, which brought adjustments exclusively to 11 heroes, making it a relatively small balance patch. With changes focused solely on hero tweaks, Patch 7.33e aimed to address heroes that were considered to be too strong in the current meta, bringing mostly nerfs to these heroes.

While the announcement of Patch 7.34 before The International Regional Qualifiers is undoubtedly exciting, there is currently no information regarding whether a larger patch will be released before the Riyadh Masters 2023. As one of the most prestigious tournaments of the year, boasting a staggering $15,000,000 prize pool, the Riyadh Masters is a one of the largest tournaments the game has ever seen, apart from The International 12. 

With Patch 7.34 set to be released before the Regional Qualifiers, fans can expect a substantial shift in the meta leading up to The International 12. This shift opens up exciting possibilities, potentially favoring different teams and strategies over the dominant forces currently reigning supreme, such as Gaimin Gladiators and Team Liquid.

As the Dota 2 community eagerly awaits Patch 7.34, slated to be released before The International Regional Qualifiers in August, the anticipation for significant gameplay changes will be palpable.
