No new heroes until TI finishes
posted by Tezzeret, 300 days agoIt is Friday (or Thursday depending where you are from) which means the main client has now been updated with the new heroes. This also marks the last of hero additions, at least until The International concludes, as indicated in a blogpost by Valve.
With The International arriving in just over a month, we want to give the competing teams some time to practice with a stable Hero roster, and as few new bugs from us as possible. With that in mind, after today’s update we’ll be clamping things down a tad, focusing on getting the existing feature and hero set polished to a high sheen. Fear not, we will continue to work on new heroes internally, getting them ready for a release once The International is over.
With a more stable and fixed hero pool to train with, teams can experiment with new lineups until The International, as well as discover weaknesses in other line ups.
