Dota Underlords Proto-Battle Pass patch delayed ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Valve's previously announced patch for Dota Underlords that will bring the Proto-Battle Pass into the game has been delayed due to an issue that was discovered late. Thanks to this, the team has postponed its release so they can fix the problem before going live with the patch.

Valve employee Adrian Finol made this information known via the Dota Underlords Discord channel, stating, 

"Our build was locked down but we just found an issue so we need to go back, fix, and restart the process." 

It's not all bad news though as the patch should be released today instead. There are also plans to put up a website which will detail the contents of the Proto-Battle Pass. Valve will update the community through its usual channels when the website is live. "We really hoped to get it done today, but it's a big one with a bunch of new systems," he said. 

No specific information on the contents of the Proto-Battle Pass has been officially released, but thanks to a number of STS strings in the last Dota Underlords update, the community was able to piece some of it together. 

Because the update doesn't have any official patch notes right now, Finol decided to update the community on some of the information the website will carry. 

  • Medusa will now ignore nearby targets that happen to be outside Medusa's attack range.
  • Split Shot's extra shots have been changed from 3 to 2.
  • Warlock alliance will no longer trigger on item activate, only spell activate.

The Proto-Battle Pass will come with a free board but it won't be selectable until next week. The removal of army cloning is also planned for next week's update, which he says could be large, but it will not include ranked and matchmaking changes.  

Finol confirmed that a UI rework is already underway, alongside more underlords, but no ETA was given. Some new models for upgraded units will be available soon though. Higher Class of Criminal will receive some kind of nerf or removal but nothing specific has been decided yet. While mobile performance work was done this week which should result in faster operation with a better battery life.
