While some Dota 2 patches are highly anticipated, especially the ones that include a battle pass, others can drop out of nowhere like 7.32c. The first iteration of 7.32 dropped on Aug. 23, shortly after the Arlington Major. Valve has been releasing finer tweaks ever since to get the patch ready for the International 2022.

While there are many minor changes in the Dota 2 patch 7.32c, further nerfs to the strongest heroes in the game drew the most attention. Most heroes like Enigma and Dawnbreaker were already hit by the nerf hammer in patch 7.32b and they were once again nerfed in 7.32c.

Faceless Void was one of the few meta heroes that was left unscratched in 7.32b, but he couldn’t escape IceFrog’s wrath in the latest patch. Faceless Void’s Time Walk Shard range bonus was reduced to 150 range from 300, and Time Dilation was also weakened in the early levels. The Refresher Shard and Orb changes also hurt the hero’s late game potential as Faceless Void won’t be able to perform a triple ultimate combo that easily.

Despite receiving major nerfs in the first iterations of patch 7.32, Viper also continued to stay relevant. The hero has been a nightmare to play against for safe lane carries mainly due to the continuous movement speed slow of Poison Attack which was nerfed in patch 7.32c. The Poison Attack will be weaker in early levels with no changes to its late game potential.

Here are all the patch notes for the Dota 2 patch 7.32c.
