Dear everybody: Techies are now on Dota 2. That is all.
Dota 2 has just been given a whopping 527MB patch, adding in everyone’s favourite set of goblin demolitionists. Time to stop playing All Pick, everyone!
Thankfully, this patch also comes with a lot of other bits and pieces for Dota 2 – All Random Deathmatch mode, A-Z Challenge support (in the form of All-Hero Challenge), a Gallery of Triumphs full of mini-achievements for you to complete, a variety of Compendium rewards, and lots of hats to buy. You can have a look at the full details over on this post, because seriously, sod reiterating that stuff again. I’m looking forward to giving ARDM a try, myself, and I eagerly await the opportunity to get annoyed at people trying to do the All-Hero Challenge with carry Io. On the plus side, early days of Techies might mean some free MMR in Ranked! And also some free losses from Techies feed. Weep.
The Dota 2 patch should automatically download the next time you sign onto Steam. Good luck, everyone, and remember: having a gem doesn’t stop you being murdered by mines placed at the top of stairs. You still have to move up there to get vision, after all…Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
