The Kiev Major Invites

The next Dota 2 Major Championship is just over the horizon, and we are pleased to announce which teams will be invited to Kiev in April for a chance to claim the Mystic Staff trophy and stand triumphant in the vanguard of Dota’s elite.

Eight teams have earned direct invites to The Kiev Major, and starting at 7AM PST, these top squads will be revealed one at a time every five minutes inside the Battle Pass Compendium. Head over to the Compendium section for the countdown timer.

The final eight teams will be determined in the crucible of the Qualifiers. While China and SEA each retain two Qualifier slots as in the past, the European Qualifiers have been split into EU and CIS Qualifiers, and the Americas Qualifiers have similarly changed to NA and SA Qualifiers, with one tournament spot up for grabs in each eligible region.

Open Qualifiers for The Kiev Major will be held on March 6 – 9, and the Regional Qualifiers will follow on March 10 – 13. Once the dust has settled, the winning eight teams will have earned the right to face off against the direct invites at The Kiev Major on April 27 – April 30 at the National Palace of Arts Ukraine. We look forward to seeing them there.


Winter Treasure II

Winter Treasure II is now available, featuring Underlord’s item set debut, as well as new sets for Silencer, Lifestealer, Lina, Death Prophet, Broodmother, Batrider, and Keeper of the Light. Each treasure also offers the chance to unlock a Very Rare Sniper set or Extremely Rare Disruptor set.

Today’s update also introduces a new feature that allows you to request item suggestions from your teammates. Click the Request Suggestion button in the top left of your shop window to try it out.

In Workshop and Armory news, we’re continuing our improvements to Keeper of the Light with a change to the item slots used by his faithful mounts. From now on, rather than dedicating item slots to both his mount and that mount’s armor, Ezalor will have a single slot for his mount, and any armor will be included in the mount’s model itself. This should allow for higher quality single-asset mounts, and help support the release of more Keeper of the Light sets in the future.

As a side effect of this upgrade, older Keeper of the Light mounts and their armor will be converted from two separate items into one in order to fit the hero’s new item slot requirements. Owners of these older sets can find the new combined versions in their Armory.

7.02 Gameplay Update

Today’s patch unveils the 7.02 Gameplay Update, focusing on numerous small balance adjustments. Including adjustments to hero talents, shrines, terrain, and the addition of Lycan to Captains Mode, this update features multiple balance changes in the wake of launching The New Journey. Check out the 7.02 change log for a full list of adjustments.


Special Event: Dark Moon

Band together in this free event to help defend Selemene’s temple against the advancing Dark Moon Horde and reap the rewards of the Goddess’ favor, including the chance to receive an implausibly indescribably-rare Immortal Dark Moon Baby Roshan courier of peerless origin.

Available to play through Monday, February 6, join the Dark Moon queue and work together with your team to defend against waves of loathsome shades creeping towards the temple. Survive the evolving assaults to earn special event points, then redeem your points for increasing Dark Moon Rewards. With a Daily Bonus and multiplier available to boost your score, the only limit to earning additional rewards is your devotion to the cause.

For millennia, the warriors of the Nightsilver Woods have stood vigilant against vile forces intent on the advent of a Dark Moon, earning both title and divine charge in sacred defense of the Goddess Selemene. But now, as the night of the new moon falls, Selemene’s chosen lie helpless behind her temple walls, victims of an arcane slumber that has left the temple grounds undefended.

With Selemene’s influence at its weakest, and twisted shades of the familiar creeping across her domain, the Moon Goddess beckons five new protectors to stand in the stead of her champions against the corruption of the Dark Moon Horde. Will you be one to answer the hallowed call?


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.
