Does Lone Druid Need A Buff?By eggs on

With the last major patch out before TI8, it seems that there will be less hope for Lone Druid, who is picked 2nd to last and has the lowest win rate across all pubs.

TI8 Overview: TNC, Optic, VGJ.Storm, Invictus Gaming and Evil GeniusesBy KawaiiSocks on

The last five teams of the International 2018 are all great in their own way. They are not the tournament's favorites and haven't accomplished enough throughout the year to get top8 in DPC, but the fact that they managed to qualify for the biggest tournament of the year means that they should be taken seriously.

Supports to Try Out in 7.18—DazzleBy KawaiiSocks on

Supports are an important part of the team. In fact, with so much emphasis on the laning stage in the current meta, the importance of supports is at an all-time high. They ensure farm for your core, make the life of the enemy core a lot harder, and combined, these things have an immense impact on how the game will play out.

Winners and Losers of Patch 7.18By KawaiiSocks on

Right after the conclusion of qualifiers, Valve released a new patch, addressing some issues present during the qualification process. The patch mostly focused on hero balance changes. Given there is only one tournament left until TI and it is unlikely to have all the top teams, it might be safe to assume that this version of Dota is either final or very close to what we will actually see at The International.

TI8 Overview: The FavoritesBy eggs on

While being favored to win is no guarantee, as we've seen our share of upsets at past TI's, it's clear that there are a few teams that are a tier above the rest.

The International 2018 Overview: Teams That Might Surprise UsBy KawaiiSocks on

Every tournament has its favorites, its underdogs and its dark horses. The International 2018 is especially rich in the latter category—several teams in the tournament’s final lineup might succeed despite all expectations. It is hard to imagine them winning the International, but imagining them win against top teams doesn’t induce the same amount of disbelief.

Regional Qualifiers Meta RecapBy KawaiiSocks on

The International 2018 main qualifiers are over and we know the teams participating in the biggest tournament of the year. Regional qualifiers were extremely intense this year, with teams in CIS, EU and SA fighting for a single qualifier spot. More importantly, however, was the diversity of the qualifiers, with many regions having their own understanding of meta.

Getting better at UnderhollowBy KawaiiSocks on

Underhollow, a game mode available to Battle Pass owners, is an interesting take on Battle Royale genre. It combines elements of Dota and games like PUBG and Fortnite to create intense 15-minute matches and was received well by the community, bar constant technical issues.

Greed Is Gone - The End Of Hand Of MidasBy eggs on

In today’s meta, Hand of Midas affords little benefit for its cost. Cores have better farming alternatives. Supports, now buffeted with XP tomes, as well as XP and Gold talents, have a bevy of old and new items for the early and mid game. Hand of Midas has since fallen out of favor and has become one of the least useful items in the game.

Aggressive Support—Treant Protector's return to the metaBy KawaiiSocks on

Treant Protector currently sits at almost 56% win rate in the highest skill bracket, making him the most successful support after Io. The hero has been absent from competitive scene and high level pubs for a while now, but the return of dual lanes and some direct buffs made the hero a lot more viable.

Winners and Losers of Patch 7.17By KawaiiSocks on

Recent patches were considerably smaller, compared to the patches we got throughout the year, primarily focused on smoothing out the kinks in the fragile Dota balance. We can’t know for sure how it will impact the professional scene at the highest level, but the statistics from the pub games already tells a story of its own.

The Ignored Heroes Of The China SupermajorBy eggs on

105 different heroes were picked and banned over 104 games and 42 series during the China Supermajor. Even Techies was banned once. With 10 heroes completely ignored during the drafting phase, we'll take a look at how patch 7.17 addresses their faults.
