Dota Update 7.24b is here

As we watched Nigma reverse sweep Team Secret in 5 games to win the WePlay! Tug of War: Mad Moon event, Valve wasted very little time is dropping 7.23b (well, a few days, which is actually quite long for Valve!). As expected, we see the most popular heroes of the event nerfed, proving that Icefrog pays close attention to the pro Dota scene, including non DPC events!

The obvious nerfs to Sladar, Entchantress Snapfire are well warranted, but I can’t help but feeling other nerfs to heroes who have just entered the meta (such as Huskar and Batrider) are a little knee-jerky (is that even a word?). A hand full of items receive slight nerfs due to their popularity, one could even argue that the rise of Desolator and Diffusal Blades is due to increase of TA/Lifestealer and Slark picks… But what do I know?

Below is the complete patch log which can be found here, enjoy!
