Dota 2 new update: 7.22c patch gameplay changes

Dota 2

Just over two weeks since 7.22 was made available, Valve has pushed another Dota 2 update with the release of the 7.22c patch.

The latest gameplay changes were announced on Sunday, June 9th, and bring some tweaks such as nerfs and buffs to heroes and item changes. In fact, there's only one item change in 7.22c, with Ring of Basilius buffed, but there are updates to 46 Dota 2 heroes, with Chen, IO and Puck among those undergoing the biggest makeovers.

The changes come ahead of the StarLadder ImbaTV Ukraine Minor, which is due to start on Wednesday, June 12th, 2019.

Community reaction

It's early days, of course, but Dota 2 fans are rarely backwards in coming forward with their reaction to pretty much anything Vavle releases and the same is true of the 7.22c patch. Here's a selection what some fans made of the new update.

parmaviolets: Is this real life? I am at an actual loss for words lol.

One True Merchant: Tinker's buff is huuuuuge +150 GPM at lvl15 is broken

Murranji: 150 gpm. On a hero who is one of the easiest and fastest to get level 15. And the only other hero who can solo kill from across the map other than storm spirit. G fucking g. New hero to ban every game. 6.81 all over again. Oh yeah and bloodseeker got the obligatory “this hero is fine but just needs +1 armour” buff after his agi gain was destroyed and his rupture kept the level 1/2 duration nerfs from when it was changed from damage as a percentage of distance traveled to damage as a percentage of total health per distance travelled. Plus Axe now has +10 movespeed so he can literally just run down any support from level 1 now. This is going to be a cancer patch for sure.
