Patch 7.28 with a new Hero in Mid December
Players can also look forward to December for the upcoming major balance Patch 7.28. It will be launched mid December along with a new hero and bring much needed change to the current meta.
Another welcome piece of news is the long-awaited return of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) in 2021. After the majority of the 2020 season fell victim to the ongoing pandemic the competitive scene had been somewhat in limbo even as the prize pool for The International broke yet another record.
16 Teams in 6 Regional Leagues
The 2021 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) will introduce the regional leagues, which will serve as the new way to qualify for the Majors and The International at the end of the Dota season. Each regional league will feature 16 teams in two divisions, with the top teams qualifiying to the first Major of 2021. The 2021 DPC will begin on January 18th and herald the return of top tier Dota 2 competition.
