The Dota 2 community is disappointed by the lackluster patch 7.32e, which turned out to be long but not very exciting. Consequently, Dota 2 pros commented on it and criticized Valve as well.

Immediately after the conclusion of Lima Major 2023, where the Gaimin Gladiators triumphed in the Grand Finals, Valve introduced the new hero Muerta to the game. However, the heroine came with a bug.

In addition, the game has been balanced with patch 7.32e before the next Tour 2 of the Dota 2 Pro Circuit 2023 starts. Patch 7.32 has been in effect for well over six months, making it one of the longest in Dota 2 history, and fans were tired of some of the imbalances in heroes like Lina, Nature’s Prophet, and Riki. Valve finally addressed this by nerfing the overpowered aspects of these heroes while giving some attention to heroes like Anti-Mage and Windranger that have been out of the picks for a long time.

Dota 2 fans are disappointed

But Valve served Dota 2 fans a bitter disappointment, letting them down with a lackluster gameplay update that definitely didn’t live up to expectations. Despite the hint of a major patch on March 6, the update has left fans angry and many people in the community have been vocal about their criticism of the patch. Even organizations and professional players have joined the community in expressing their disappointment with what many are calling one of the most disappointing updates in Dota 2 history.

The patch notes for the 7.32e patch are quite long, but they contain mostly numerical adjustments that pushed even winners from The International to their limits. Martin “Saksa” Sazdov from Tundra Esport called the patch downright pathetic because of the amount of overall changes.

Valve criticized by players

Saksa wasn’t alone in his opinion either, as other TI winners like Sebastien “Ceb” Debs were also disappointed and showed their feelings about the patch on social media as well. He called the latest patch 7.32e a bait because Valve made the mistake of hyping the release date because of the new character, Muerta.

Streamer Janne “Gorgc” Stefanovski noted that they patch notes resemble an essay where you randomly insert fancy words to get enough text together to make it look more impressive.

Although Valve is spreading a lot of bad vibes throughout the Dota 2 player base with the 7.32e patch, the developer promised that 7.33 is not too far in the future and stated that it would be released at the end of April. This means that the second tour of DPC 2023 will be played with 7.32e and the big changes will come before the next major.
