A week after The International 2017 finished, Valve officially released a new patch for gameplay 7.06f. In this latest patch, many heroes who became prima donna at The International then end up getting nerfed, even though it’s only a minor nerf. On the other hand, the heroes who weren’t in demand yesterday were given a buff.

It can be seen that overpowered heroes like Earthshaker, Necrophos, and Night Stalker are nerfed. As we know, these three heroes were the heroes that were picked up a lot at TI yesterday. Whereas Lion, and Specter and Wraith King got buff considering they were rarely used yesterday.

For items, it looks like Mask of Madness has a little nerf plus the Helmet of Dominator try to lift it again with a small buff there.
