In-Game Interface Update

Today’s update focuses on improvements to the in-game interface with various modifications to the Shop layout and Hero Control Console. For a full list of changes, read our patch notes here.

Shop Interface
The in-game Shop interface has been reworked to restore the item grid to the right-side orientation with hero guides extending to the left, and popular items are now highlighted directly in the item grid. Popular items are dynamically created and updated based on the top items purchased by players with an MMR of 5,000 and higher. Additionally, all players have a row of global customizable pinned items under the grid that can be set to match personal item preferences for quicker access.

Hero Control Console
We’ve made adjustments to the Hero Control Console layout to accommodate several changes, including making hero attributes always visible and showing both the base and bonus values for damage, armor, and attributes by default. We’ve also increased the size of HP/Mana bars, increased the area for multi-unit selection, and introduced multi-unit icons that scale dynamically based on the initial number of units selected.

Hotkey Support
We’ve restored the option to activate the Learn Ability mode with a hotkey. In addition, hotkey support is now available for opening the Hero Talent Tree to select the left or right Talent branch.


7.00 Update – The New Journey Begins

Today we invite the Dota community to embark upon The New Journey Update, now available to everyone in the Dota 2 client.

This release marks the debut of the new hero Monkey King, who is joined by a custom Arcana item and an all-new themed terrain to celebrate his arrival.

Also introducing new Hero Talent Trees which allow you to augment your hero’s capabilities with powerful new innate Talent choices, a redesigned in-game interface, extensive map changes, and more, this update launches Dota into the next stage of its constant evolution.

Visit the 7.00 Update page for details on all of the changes The New Journey has in store.

Once you get your bearings, prepare to join your fellow adventurers out in the lanes. The battle for the Ancients may have changed, but a hero’s call to glory never fades.


7.00 Update Countdown

The 7.00 Update is almost here. Join as we countdown to reveal.

Tomorrow we’ll release the 7.00 Update web page detailing all of the changes coming to the world of Dota, giving you a head start on learning all the info you’ll need to adjust to the new shape of battle.

The new update will be available on the Dota 2 Test client once the web page has launched, and on Monday, December 12, the 7.00 Update will go live to the world. Your clash for the Ancients will never be the same.


The Boston Major Champions

Congratulations to OG for successfully defending their hold on the Eaglesong trophy to emerge as champions of The Boston Major.

After securing top seed in Group D, the green machine rolled through the Main Event Bracket while dropping only two matches en route to their return to the winner’s circle.

With a 2-0 win over MVP Phoenix to start the tournament, a 2-1 comeback against WG.Unity in the Quarterfinals, a dominating 2-0 series win against EG in the Semifinals, and a 3-1 triumph over Ad Finem in the Finals, OG claimed their third Dota 2 Major Championship title to cement their status as a major threat to the tournament hopes of all the rest of Dota’s elite teams.

We also extend our congratulations to newcomers Ad Finem for an amazing run to the Finals at their first Dota 2 Major Championship. Their spirited performances garnered the support and respect of many in the Dota community.

With The Boston Major now in the books, we would like to thank all of the participating teams and fans in Boston, and all of the fans around the world who tuned in to watch the action unfold. We look forward to welcoming you to The Kiev Major, produced by PGL, on April 20 – 23, 2017.


Fall Treasure IV and Boston Major

Fall 2016 Treasure IV is now available, featuring new item sets for Wraith King, Meepo, Invoker, Nature’s Prophet, and Luna, as well as escalating odds to unlock a Rare Lycan item set or Extremely Rare Alchemist item set that includes a new Unstable Concoction spell effect.

Now, with less than two weeks left until our next tournament champion is crowned, the focus of the Dota community turns to The Boston Major with Group Stage starting this Saturday, December 3 at 10:00 a.m. EST.

Fans can find the Group Stage brackets and complete tournament schedule in the Featured section of the Dota 2 Watch menu, and the broadcast stream will be available live in the main menu of the Dota 2 client once each day’s games begin.

We wish all competitors the best of luck, and look forward to welcoming attendees to the Wang Theatre for the Main Event Wednesday, December 7 – Saturday, December 10. For fans looking to go home with some Dota 2 swag, the Secret Shop will be open to all members of the public at the W Hotel next to the venue each day of the Main Event.
