Professional Players Are Not Happy With Patch 7.00 And Here’s Why

It’s been only one day since the patch 7.00 was released on the main client. The long list of patch notes had a lot of changes within the game as well as the arrival of new non-Dota 1 hero, Monkey King. From the design of the map to HUD, everything has been changed in the new patch.

According to Mathew “Cyborgmatt” Bailey, the amount of users downloading patch 7.00 pushed the Steam servers to a peak of 5.9 Tbps which is a significant figure considering that only 2.2 Tbps download bandwidth was used in the North American region alone.

The new patch came with a lot of changes. However, the professional players and analysts are not so happy with it. Some of the players have tweeted their impressions about the new patch 7.00. Here’s few of them.

Kuro Salehi “KuroKy” Takhasomi doesn’t seem to be happy at all with the new patch.

Of course, it is always hard to adapt such changes in the game and Valve didn’t realize what monster they are creating for the professional players.

Clinton “Fear” Loomis used the sarcastic approach and expressed his feelings via tweet.

“With the new patch, comes greater bug issues.” It seems like this line fits quite well for the Dota 2 patches as most of the time, there are some unchecked bugs and problems in the patch that later on create massive problems for the players.

Ivan “Vanskor” Skorokhod really wants to get back the old DotA 2 HUD.

Surely everyone loved the old DotA 2 HUD, and no one really wanted to adapt the new changes Valve made to the game.

Artour “Arteezy” Babaev finds it difficult to adjust himself to the new Dota 2 patch which is technically creating a bit of problem for him.

Technically, the new patch is creating a bit of problem for the professional players as they are used to look at the bigger UI when it comes to skills’ and HP/mana bar. The new User Interface is quite small as compared to the old one. However, today, Valve announced another update in which the entire HUD was reworked and made 10% larger than before.

Patch 7.00 not only came with a lot of new features but also quite a lot of bugs in which lag issue is among them.

Although Per Olsson “Pajkatt” Lille is happy with the changes being made in the game, he also complains about the lag issue in the new patch.

Apparently, patch 7.00 is causing trouble for Max “qojqva” Broecker as he isn’t able to buy consumables and items using hotkeys.

It looks like bug issues are getting serious as they also strike in the hotkeys for quick purchase and items, which, unfortunately, is creating a lot of trouble for the players.

Looks like Martin “Saksa” Sazdov has really been effected by the new patch. He demands Valve to bring back the old Dota 2 User Interface.

Just like Fear, Shannon “SUNSfan” Scotten also has some sarcastic views on the new patch.

But guess what, we have also found someone who has already adapted himself to the current patch. Niklas “Wagamama” Högström has quite some tips for the rest of the players in case they are playing against Monkey King.

With all that being said, it is always hard to adapt to the news changes, but at the end, we get used to it. Same is the rule for the competitive gaming. However, Valve still has to make a lot of bug fixes and changes in the game. If the competitive players are facing problems on the new patch, then the rest of the Dota 2 community must be facing severe problems especially in ranked matchmaking system.
