With the Reborn update hitting Dota 2 a few weeks ago, you’d expect the playerbase for Valve’s MOBA to surge higher than ever. An update to bring Source 2 to the game, along with a whole new UI and a bunch of other cool tricks… who wouldn’t want to play that? A lot less people it seems, because the number of people diving into Dota 2 has dropped by a whopping 16%.
The Reborn beta has been around for a good few months now, giving Valve ample time to tinker around and tune up the future Dota 2 engine. Have you been holding out on trying it out? You won’t have a choice for much longer it seems, because it looks like Reborn will be officially launching this week.
