Here is when the next Dota 2 patch might drop.
The 2023 season for Dota 2 is approaching its end but there's a new patch looming right ahead of us. As The International 12 (TI12) season concludes and the Compendium comes to an end, fans are anticipating a massive update. This time with the promised cosmetics like Immortals and Arcanas. Wykrhm Reddy announced that the next Dota 2 update, Patch 7.34e will arrive on November 20, 2023.
UPDATE: Patch 7.34e is here (and it's a little underwhelming..) Check out the nerfs and buffs here.
Patch 7.34e: Next Dota 2 update potential release time
Previously, user u/DrDesmondGaming posted on Reddit his analysis of when the next Dota 2 patch might drop. They compiled the release time of four previous patches, 7.32a - 7.32d, and spotted the similarities. All of these patches were released on a Tuesday morning from 12:17 PM to 2:48 PM (Seattle Time).
On the other hand, all patches in the 7.31 phase (except for 7.31b) were released on a Wednesday morning from 1:29 PM to 4:10 PM (Seattle Time).
Patch 7.34 will likely drop on either Tuesday or Wednesday, from 12 PM to 4 PM.
What to expect in Patch 7.34e
As per usual, the next Dota 2 update will typically nerf all the biggest monsters of the current patch. The dominant heroes include Spirit Breaker, Dazzle, Chaos Knight, Primal Beast, and Treant Protector. While these heroes will likely be nerfed, dead heroes will likely receive some buffs. Unpopular heroes in current patch includes Winter Wyvern, Lion, Shadow Shaman, and Timbersaw.
In the TI12 Celebration Update, Valve promised "the next big patch, the next set of Arcanas, and everything else they are working on" after TI12 ends. It is now almost three weeks since Team Spirit lifted the Aegis in Seattle, USA, concluding the pro season. This November 20th Patch 7.34e update will likely see one of the promised updates - if not all.
There have been leaks from data miners that hint towards a Vengeful Spirit and Skywrath Mage Arcana. Other leaks include a Broodmother persona and a Hoodwink Immortal. You can read more about the leaks here!

With the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) no longer here, Valve also promises more fun ideas which can mean consistent events and new cosmetics for the entire season. We'll have to see what Valve has in store and if the hype is worth the wait!
