Dota 2 Latest News

Released in 2013, Valve’s Dota 2 is still hitting new levels almost seven years later. Here’s general and betting news from around the game and esports.

New Update

Dota 2 got a pretty significant update on the 26th. Patch 7.27d brings quite a few changes to the game. It brings changes to four items and 29 heroes.

The most significant updates came to Underlord, Venomancer, and Arc Warden.



Firestorm cast range reduced from 675 to 600/625/650/675


Pit of Malice cooldown increased from 18/17/16/15 to 21/19/17/15

Pit of Malice disable duration increased from 0.9/1.2/1.5/1.8 to 1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8


Atrophy Aura creep bonus changed from 4/5/6/7 to 2/4/6/8


Level 15 Talent increased from -3s Firestorm Cooldown to -4s



Plague Ward manacost increased from 20 to 20/22/24/26

Plague Ward gold bounty increased from 14-17 to 15/17/19/21


Poison Sting damage reduced from 8/16/24/32 to 6/14/22/30

Poison Sting slow reduced from 11/13/15/17% to 9/11/13/15%



Tempest Double no longer breaks Smoke of Deceit


Level 10 Talent reduced from +350 Flux Cast Range to +300

Some pretty big updates, especially with competitions such as Omega League and ESL One Thailand underway.


The biggest tournament in Dota, The International, is in jeopardy, and isn’t expected to start until October 31st at the earliest. For now, bettors will have to focus on the Omega League for major competitions to bet on.

Omega League’s Americas Divine Division features a matchup between Quincy Crew and Beastcoast.

Quincy Crew has been dominant, winning 15 of their last 17 matches, finishing on top in their last 5 tournaments. The lowest Quincy Crew has placed is 2nd this year.

Beastcoast have been a fine team in this league, finishing 2nd in their group. Unfortunately, running into QC likely spells the end for them.

The odds agree, with Quincy Crew earning 1.19 odds. Even the map handicap seems too risky for beastcoast.

If you’re interested in non-tournament betting options, you can bet on who wins Dota’s Arcana Vote, where Battle Pass owners can vote on which hero gets a legendary item.

It seems as if Faceless Void is the favourite, with the odds of 1.25 and the sentiment from much of the Dota community pointing to a win.

Overall, not many enticing options yet, however, The International 2020 could be just around the corner! Its record $34,495,408 prize pool gives the community something to look forward to. However, its set date is yet to be announced.
