Dota Underlords Update Patch Notes – Valve Tones Down the Knights

Valve really likes patching Dota Underlords. Since the last time we posted about balance updates, a whole two days ago, Valve has released two more patches to the game. They’re certainly smaller in size, but they do include some matchmaking changes and some important nerfs to Omniknight, Dragon Knight, and the Knights Alliance.
