Dota 2’s big spring patch is all about fixes and improvements

This update may not seem dramatic, but it will impact your experience in myriad small ways.


Dota 2 has been updated with a hefty patch, but you won’t see a bunch of flashy events and new characters here – or even significant rebalancing.

Instead, the Spring Cleaning update is focused on tidying things up. Valve has implemented loads of subtle changes, the highlights of which include:

  • Neutral spawn indicators
  • Camera control group hotkeys
  • Streamlined settings menu
  • Armoury organisation
  • Armoury expansion
  • Hero-specific ability hotkeys
  • Full store browsing in-client
  • Minimap icon update
  • Tower attack range and target indicator
  • Independent voice and chat muting

For the full patch notes including dozens of UI changes, gameplay fixes and economy changes, visit the Dota 2 Spring Cleaning hub. They’re quite extensive.
