Dota 2’s update 7.22e brings lots of hero changes

The MOBA phenomenon never develops, but it always varies

Good luck on balancing a MOBA video game of this caliber. Not only that it is hardest, but there will always be something that sticks out and feels inappropriate. With that being said, there will always be a new meta. Thanks to the new 7.22e update, there will be new heroes coming to the meta, as it will be by far more interesting to witness shuffled picks at this year’s International.

Now that the TI 9 qualifiers are done, players can settle on a new path and discover what changes are the most beneficial for the players. Thus, in other words, discover a new meta that will continue developing throughout the coming period.
