It was a choice between the better of two evils for Valve: release Monkey King and 7.00 on time, as promised, and end up with tons of bizarre gamebreaking bugs.

You can use Reddit if you want to, but unless you’re gambling on your post hitting the front page, you’re better off describing the issue in detail on the Dota developer forums.
