Changes The Next Patch NeedsBy KawaiiSocks on

MDL Disneyland marks the end of the patch 7.21 era. There are still some qualifiers to be played for Epicenter, but next week we are finally leaving the patch behind.

MDL Disneyland: Major SurprisesBy KawaiiSocks on

In the comment section for our blog post about meta developments in the DotaPit Minor, we teased that we will be discussing the unpicked heroes of the patch. We had a short list of heroes who made no appearances throughout patch 7.21, over the course of three DPC events, but MDL Disneyland made this list even shorter.

What Can We Learn from DotaPit Minor?By KawaiiSocks on

DotaPit Minor might have had a rather unconventional format, but it did provide us with a lot of stats to work with and a lot of high quality games for Tier 1—2 teams to practice and experiment in. It was an overall great experience for the viewers and a very healthy tournament for the developing regions and lesser known players.

Should We Give Queen of Pain a Chance?By KawaiiSocks on

What can we learn from OpenAI?By KawaiiSocks on

There is a misconception in our community about the purpose of OpenAI—many wrongly assume that it was created to play Dota. That isn’t the case.

The Meta's Top Tier Carries—7.21dBy KawaiiSocks on

The current meta might be slower than a couple of patches ago, but it still rewards proactive play. While many farm-oriented carry heroes are viable and can work really well in certain games, the majority of top tier carries are capable of mid-game pressure, with going late being the plan B.

Familiar faces round out this meta's top performing midlaners.

The Meta's Top Tier Offlaners—7.21dBy KawaiiSocks on

The offlane meta is returning back to its glory days, at least in a sizable percentage of games. Professional teams and individual players are typically looking for an offlaner that offers both good utility and damage, while being relatively gold and experience independent, or capable of securing his own farm early on.
