The highly anticipated update for Dota 2 is here. Dueling Fates patch 7.07 update was first announced at The International 7 and is live! This update is HUGE- two new heroes, numerous gameplay,hero and item reworks, removal and addition of new items, Ancient Apparition remodel and much more.
Dueling Fates update introduces Pangolier and Dark Willow heroes to the Dota 2 universe. Panagolier is a melee-carry that boasts many evasive abilities that are sure to cause havoc, while Dark Willow is a ranged-support that features root and stun abilities to priorities crowd control.
Also included in patch 7.07 is ranked seasons that allows re-calibration of MMR, turbo mode that is aimed at casual players, changes to ability draft, Ancient Apparition remodel, improvements to ping wheel, a massive amount of changes to gameplay and items that includes my personal favorite "Flying Courier upgrade can no longer be purchased. Courier now upgrades automatically at 3 minutes", rework of heroes (Beastmaster, Broodmother, Morphling, Tiny, Viper and Wraith King), removed items (PMS and Iron Talon) and the introduction of 5 new items.
