Valve has released a fresh update for Dota Underlords earlier on Thursday, March 19, which introduced some much-needed changes to the game and namely Bloodseeker, who has been terrorising the meta.
Bloodseeker has become a force to be reckoned with in the Dota Underlords meta play. As a cheap and effective unit, that is not only self-sufficient due to its Bloodrage ability, which provided health regen and attack speed every time Bloodseeker killed an enemy, but also very effective even without an Alliance.
The sheer power and usefulness of Bloodseeker called for nerfs and it should not come off as a surprise the recently added patch addressed the said issue, alongside implementing some welcomed changes, which should improve the performance of the game across many platforms, namely iOS devices with 2GB memory.
Here we will look at full March 19 patch notes of Dota Underlords.
Dota Underlords Update In Which Bloodseeker
- Dota Underlords will become much more energy efficient, by reducing the number of crashes on 2GB iOS devices.
