Jingjun "Sneyking" Wu, the IGL for Tundra Esports Dota 2 roster, opened up about the next patch of the competitive MOBA. In his words, Valve wants the players to try out even more tactics with current meta, as it has been worked on for quite some time, to drastically change the game flow at The International 11.
In other words, the new patch won't be out for a long time, which might mean that the players can get their hands on the new meta after the winter tour. Power adjustments of OP heroes, therefore, will remain intact, unless there is a certain bug discovered in near future.
The latest patch 7.32 was released late August 2022, while the battle pass is going to end on January 12th. Many expect the new hero, Muerta, to join the roster this day.
