Dota 2 has got such a big update that professionals call it Dota 3

The MOBA Dota 2 got the big Outlanders update on November 26th. It brought many innovations and changed already known content. Some eSports professionals even jokingly call it Dota 3.

What are the significant changes? Valve has made changes in almost all areas of the game with the new update.

The most important changes are:

-Heroes now have a higher level cap. Instead of 25, the maximum level is now 30. Also, they can now carry 10 items: six in the inventory and four in the backpack.
-The shops on the outer lanes have been removed and replaced by outposts. You can bring them under your control by interacting with them. Rewards include bonus experience, and you can teleport to controlled outposts.
-Each player will now automatically have a courier to start the game. He levels up with the hero and learns skills like a speed boost.
-Observer Wards no longer cost gold.
-62 new neutral items are waiting for you in the jungle. The creeps can only drop these. They are divided into 5 categories, with the weak items being dropped at the beginning and the strong ones at the end of the game.
-Two new heroes have been introduced, Void Spirit and Snapfire.
-There were adjustments to the map layout.

In addition to these changes, there were other small changes and balance adjustments to many items and heroes in Dota 2. You can read the entire patch notes on the official website.

What can the new heroes do? The hero Void Spirit is a melee carry and relies on magical skills. He should become stronger over time and develop his full potential only in the Lategame. Void Spirit is the fourth and oldest of the ghosts of the wailing mountains.

Beatrix Snapfire, on the other hand, is a goblin grandmother and takes on the role of support. She rides a dragon toad and uses a revolver to cover up enemies with a hail of bullets.

eSports pros call the update Dota 3

Who calls the update Dota 3? Many eSports players and teams commented on the Outlanders update on Twitter. Team Secret, reached the fourth place at the International 2019.

The teams Natus Vincere, OGesports and the subreddit mod Wykrhm Reddy also joined in with this tenor. The changes seem to be generally well-received.

Especially the heroes, the outposts and many balance changes are praised. Only for the neutral items, the opinions differ a lot.

Dota Underlords also benefits from the update

What changes in the car Battler? Dota Underlords also got an Outlanders-Update. The two heroes Void Spirit and Snapfire were introduced. Also, the three other Elemental Spirits Storm, Earth and Glow came into play.

With them, the new Alliance Spirit will be introduced:

-Whenever a ghost uses a skill, it switches to the loaded state.
-When 3 ghosts are loaded, a triangular delta strike is activated, dealing damage to all enemies in the triangle.

Also, the new Knockout mode has been activated, where you have 4 Health instead of 100 Health.
