Valve made a lot of people angry this year when they elected not to ship a Diretide event for Dota 2. They've reversed course in a new blog post today, explaining why Diretide hadn't been planned for this year and saying that the event will be included in the game's next update.
Diretide is a Halloween event that's traditionally been scheduled for Dota 2, one of Valve's many fun holiday extras. This year, however, Halloween came and went with no announcement of the event. Fans were not pleased.
