Valve has just issued a small update for Dota 2 via Steam Client. It fixes some AI exploits, spells bugs and a common ‘You must be in a lobby to reconnect’ bug that prevented players from reconnecting. This update also adds Pseudo random chances to Bash, Critical and other chance based objects in game.

This weeks patch also adds some unreleased content (thanks to Cyborgmatt). A new Dota 2 Winter Themed map has been added which could possibly be a special event like DireTide. The next coming hero is confirmed to be Medusa and some new items are coming as well.
