After months of speculation and vague hints as to when major post-International 2018 patch will be released, we finally have confirmation from Valve.
In a blog post released Nov. 5 on the Dota 2 website, Valve congratulated Tigers on winning DreamLeague Season 10. And the last line of the developer's release date.
Valve dropped the bomb fans have been waiting for months, that the long-awaited 7.20 patch would release Nov. 19-one day after the Kuala Lumpur Major concludes.
The Kuala Lumpur Major, the first of the 2018-19 Dota Pro Circuit season, is happening from Nov. 9 to 18. It will see 16 teams fighting for a prize pool of $ 1 million dollars and 15,000 DPC Points. It will take some time to decide which teams will receive invitations to the Invitational.
This release date of the patch is perfect, as it gives us plenty of time to practice the new changes before the next DPC event-The Bucharest Minor-on Jan. 9. The meta will likely have an overhaul, which means matches a lot of experimentation until the players figure what works.
