Dota 2 16 Jan PatchValve has just unleashed a new update on DotA 2 servers but unfortunately, in this update, there is no sign of our beloved perma-bash hero Troll Warlord instead it brings a new game mode ‘Least Played‘. In this mode players in a team are only allowed to choose their least played heroes so they can improve their skills. Also this update ships with usual, bugs/exlpoits, bots and workshop improvements. You can check change logs for more details.

New Game Mode
Added Least Played mode to matchmaking! In this mode players can only choose from a list of their least played heroes.
