7.22e introduces Pseudo Random miss chances

posted by SmittyW.,
Valve has released a new patch for Dota 2. Version 7.22e comes with lots of minor changes to the balance and introduces Pseudo Random Distribution of miss probablities in low ground and debuff scenarios. Around one month before The International 2019, Valve further tweaks the numbers of the game. In general, there are no drastic changes apart from slight buffs and nerfs here and there. The most impactful change affects a mechanic of the game itself though.

Here are the full patch notes.

General



  • Low ground miss and miss debuff chance is now Pseudo Random


This change might be the biggest one of the new patch. Pseudo Random chances are more consistent than actual random chances. Right after a missed hit, for example, the chance to miss again directly after that are lower. Accordingly, the chance to miss is higher the longer you havn't missed. By increasing the consistency of chance-based events, the luck factor gets reduced while maintaining the overall probability. A detailed explanation of Pseudo Random Distribution can be found here.
