Dota 2

Com o natal cada vez mais próximo, a Valve não perdeu tempo e lançou a tão aguardada atualização de natal para o Dota 2. Chamada de Shifting Snows Update, ela adiciona o mapa de inverno, novos itens e balanceamento da versão 6.83.

Para quem gosta de gastar seu dinheiro em itens, o Shifting Snows adiciona dois novos baús. Treasure of The Frosted Flame oferece itens para Lula, Sniper, Legion Commander, Drow Ranger e Shadow SHaman. Os drops mais raros incluem um novo set para o tiny e um courier de tubarão.

Já o Treasure of The Nested Cache pode te dar um tesouro aleatório ou um vale-tesouro, que permite com que o jogador escolha o item que deseja ganhar.

Para a personalização de base, existe o Effigy of Frost. Com ele você pode criar um monumento do seu personagem favorito para colocar na base com um efeito congelado. Além do novo material, todos os effigies agora terão novas animações.

Por fim, o Gift Wrap permite que você transforme itens em presentes de natal para seus amigos. Ele funciona com qualquer set ou item do game.

Dota 2 6.83 – Veja as mudanças

O mais importante não são os itens, porém, mas sim a atualização 6.83 de balanceamento, que traz mudanças grandes tanto aos heróis como ao jogo no geral.

Em partidas All Pick do Modo Ranked, o tempo de seleção de personagem caiu de 40 para 30 segundos, enquanto as primeiras runas a aparecerem em todos os modos são Bounty, mas com o dobro de eficácia (50/50 gold/xp para 100/100).

Além disso, as barracks, tanto as ranged como as melee tiveram seu ganho de gold reduzido de 352-370 para 100-150 respectivamente.

Já alguns personagens tiveram a duração de suas habilidades aumentadas, enquanto outros tiveram seu dano reduzido. Vale apontar também que a velocidade máxima de ataque foi aumentada de 500 para 600. A valve aponta que essa mudança influencia principalmente em habilidades como a Focus Fire da WindRanger.
