Dota 2 Update Removes Low Priority Penalties From Recently Affected Players

Dota 2 update Vulkan Support

A quick and small Dota 2 update has rolled out a couple of hours ago and addressed a small number of issues that the MOBA title was experiencing lately.

Unlike the major updates, this one came and went silently and automatically just like the smallest of updates that Valve Corporation had released for the game about three weeks ago (that one addressed some issues with gems and Drodo’s effects as well as frame rate drops).

The highlight of the new Dota 2 update was that Valve Corporation has removed low priority penalties from the players that have been affected by them. This would be a sigh of relief for many players for more than one reasons.

People have already registered their disapproval of the system suggesting that it did not work as the corrective punishment that it should for quitters or people who have been reported multiple times.

The Dota 2 update has made four other fixes to the game too. Here’s the complete changelog:

  • Fixed various crashes, including frequent crashes on machines with Integrated Graphics Cards
  • Removed recent low priority penalties from affected users
  • Lots of memory optimizations
  • Various fixes to weapon ambient effects not showing the right color
  • Fixed Terrorblade Arcana specular

While this was a minor update to the game, the last time major changes were made was a little over a month ago when the patch 6.86 was released; the highlights being the Arc Warden, new maps, items, terrains and more.

That is all for the latest Dota 2 update, but check back later for the next time.
