Dota 2 Feb 10 updateSad news once again, Valve has delayed yet another patch update for DOTA 2. This is due to the worldwide server and network upgrade for DOTA 2 Open Beta. Also, they have notified about the 24 hours downtime coming this Tuesday, 14th February. The next update is confirm on next week which is said to be packed with the content and of course new heroes. Meanwhile, you can read the statement issued by Valve:

Now, before you start a petition to get us all fired, let us tell you what is going on. You are probably aware that the number of people with access to Dota 2 is not equal to the size of the Earth’s population (our internal estimate of the number of people who want Dota 2). The primary reason we haven’t allowed everyone access to the game is because we don’t yet have enough server capacity to run all the games it would require. Our server deployment team has spent the last few months flying around the world setting up new server clusters to increase that capacity.

The extensive network changes we’ve been working on, to support the new replay system among other things, has resulted in significant changes to our servers. This is why we’ve taken longer than anticipated to get this update out. It’s also the reason why we’ll be needing to take down all Dota 2′s servers for 24 hours, starting Tuesday 14th at 11am PST.

On the bright side, our game team has been working as usual, building new heroes and features. So you can expect our next update, which we’re probably going to regret saying will be out next week, to be a packed one. In the meantime, here’s some light reading:

    at least we’ll get 3 or 4 heroes next week, just hoping they won’t delay it again. the 3/4 heroes that should be released are Gyrocopter, Lanaya, Phantom Assassin, and Bane (Elemental), or maybe even Dirge if he’s already finished.

      Yeah i mean that’s why it is like it is. So we can have fun and play a game. I mean it’s not u have 2 but still man… Have fun. Why worry? Just chill and eat some chocolate and yeah… That’s about it….

    Well, let’s just be patient here. it’s kinda sad that we cant play this game right now, but it is also great to have the game at its full version and finished update right? “wait and grab, one-time-big-time”. Here in the 3rd world (Philippines) , Even we are really poor with those internet connection, CPUs, and softwares (Programs that we can’t have because we’re in the 3rd world) .We’re still doing our best to catch-up. More power to you guys.
