DOTA 2 The Underhollow

With the popularity of battle royale, it’s no surprise even Valve is putting in their own spin for DOTA 2. The Underhollow has just launched with the MOBA’s latest update and pits teams of 3 in an all out brawl for Roshan the Immortal’s rarest cheese.

So, a bit of backstory: Roshan has burrowed deep underground and has created maze-like tunnels while searching for Roshefort, the rarest and tastiest cheese of them all. It’s not much, but it does set the tone for what you can expect from the mode.

Here’s a brief overview of the game’s mechanics:

  • The mode pits 8 teams of 3 against each other.
  • Players will have to go from room to room leveling up their characters and collecting items and gold.
  • Clearing a room spawns a treasure chest with gold, items and healing.
  • The contents of each room are generated randomly for each match, with the difficulty and quality of the loot increasing as you near the center.
  • Shops will periodically appear in rooms, selling items and healing potions.
  • Every 5 minutes, Roshan will drop the outermost ring of rooms, forcing teams towards the inner rooms.
  • The goal is to be the last team standing.
The following heroes are not available in this mode:
  • STR
    • Doom
    • Kunkka
    • Legion Commander
    • Undying
  • AGI
    • Bloodseeker
    • Broodmother
    • Meepo
    • Monkey King
    • Phantom Lancer
    • Spectre
    • Ursa
  • INT
    • Batrider
    • Chen
    • Enchantress
    • Nature’s Prophet
Also, a few heroes have altered abilities:
  • Tiny’s Tree Grab skill is replaced with Trample, a skill that buffs Tiny’s movement speed, deals a percentage of Tiny’s attack damage, and stuns opponents that Tiny comes in contact with for the duration of the skill.
  • Shadow Fiend’s Shadowraze ability has increased cast time, reduced cooldown, reduced mana cost, increased range, increased radius, reduced damage and deals no stacking damage.
  • Witch Doctor’s Paralyzing Cask has reduced cooldown, reduced mana cost, and increased number of bounces. Voodoo Restoration’s activation cost has also been reduced while Death Ward has increased max channel time, reduced mana cost, increased number of bounces and increased damage.
Notes about teamplay:
  • It is highly recommended that teammates stick together at all times.
  • All items are shareable and it is recommended that you divide loot fairly among teammates.
  • Fallen allies can be revived to 50% HP and MP by clicking on their gravestones. Reviving a teammate will take a few seconds.
  • Fallen enemies can be completely eliminated by clicking on their gravestones. This requires waiting 20 seconds.
  • Eliminated players drop their gold and items.
  • A team is automatically eliminated when all 3 members are dead.
Finally, players can earn Battle Pass points for playing The Underhollow:
  • Find a standard treasure – 20 Battle Points
  • Find a Small Cheese – 25 Battle Points
  • Kill an enemy player – 30 Battle Points
  • Find a Big Cheese – 300 Battle Points
  • Win a match – 750 Battle Points
