Look, I'm going to be honest with you here. The way this update page is structured for this Dota 2 update kind of hurts my head at 2:30 in the morning. Hell, it would hurt my head if I read it at 2:30PM. I don't know what I'm looking at here. I haven't played Dota in ages so a lot of this doesn't make much sense at all to me.

What you should probably do is head on over to the update page for tonight's big Dota 2 patch. Valve is calling it "The Balance of Power Update." I'm assuming there is a lot of changes that drastically alter how the game is played that most veterans will immediately notice. If nothing else, it seems as though there is a new Hero to play as: Arc Warden.

The update also includes a desert terrain, new music, nice shadows, map changes, a new arena map looking thing, and like a 900 line long changelog (so says Notepad++). The changelog is here, the fancy images showing the new stuff is also there. There's a comic as well. It's a lot of stuff. I'm sure some people will love it while others complain about balance or how the meta has changed or something.
