New Ranked Season indeed it will be planned to bereset moment patch new, but the information about adding stars in the medal from five to seven was a surprise.

In this patch, it seems that Valve wants to tempt players to buy Dota Plus by bringing up a new set that looks ‘fierce’.

An example is the new set of named Monkey King the new Mask of Mischief which can be purchased for 90,000 shards.

Shards can be collected by Dota Plus users, so in addition to finishing Quest, players who have purchased Dota Plus must collect as many shards as possible to buy a new set from hero Monkey King, Enchantress, Medusa and Centaur.

3. General Gameplay Changes

The first is a creep where there is a reduction of 3 gold every melee creep and also range creep increased to +6 gold.

That means there is a deficit of 90 gold in the first 10 creep waves (5 minutes) of patch before that made core have to be often farming in jungle at the start of the game.

Additionally both Dire and Radiant lost one camp ancient creep which is detrimental to heroes like Medusa, Alchemist and Gyrocopter.

But all heroes have increased by 15% primary their attributes. And for heroes strength, health they went up from 18 to 20.

There are also changes to the XP needed for level 7 to reach level 12, from 640/660/680/800/820/840 to 720/750/780/810/840/870 (the difference is +80/90/100/10/20 / 30 XP).

This is detrimental mid laner which requires a fast level to help his team especially at level 8 to 9 where it takes 100 XP more than patch 7.20

For additions movement speed, the melee hero gets an additional +5 (Naga Siren, Underlord, Monkey King, Nyx Assassin, Bloodseeker, Riki) +10 for Alchemist, Dragon Knight, Meepo and +15 for Legion Commander, Lifestealer, Lycan, Sven, Ursa, Wraith King.
