Underrated Heroes of the Current PatchBy KawaiiSocks on

It might look weird to start a discussion on the underrated heroes of the current patch when the new patch is coming sometime soon, however, there is a reason for it. Quite frequently, when a hero gets some small buffs, it is not because of his actual power level, but rather because of his popularity. These small buffs are less of an attempt to make a weak hero more viable, but rather an additional reason for players to notice and play an already viable hero. Today we are going to discuss three such heroes, who are already quite good and who might get even better in the next patch.

Returning to Dota: A PrimerBy KawaiiSocks on

The next patch should be coming some time soon and that means a lot of players are going to return to their favorite game. While we can’t prepare these returning players to the realities of the upcoming meta, we can nonetheless discuss how to get back in as effortlessly as possible, as well as highlight how the position of a returning player might actually be an advantage.

Why Dota Needs Another Ranged CarryBy KawaiiSocks on

Dota is incredibly varied, with many unique hero designs and almost infinite possible matchups. The new Dota hero should be coming soon, and we would like to take this time to discuss and speculate: how the new hero could fit into the current or the future meta, what their role in the game could be, and why they should be a ranged carry.

Does Lion Need a Rework?By Duality on

On paper, Lion seems like an incredible hero. Multiple disables, infinite mana, and a scaling ultimate that is equal parts satisfying to use and highly effective at taking out important targets. It’s no wonder that Lion has been a popular pick for both support players and core players farming role queue tokens. Lion also happens to be one of the most despised heroes to team with for most players as well.

Top Heroes to Farm Diretide Points WithBy Duality on

The 2020 Diretide game mode is a fun addition to the Dota 2 experience that feels like a cross between turbo Dota and a tower defense custom map. A lot of what you already know about Dota with regards to hero combos, team fighting, and objective control applies directly to Diretide. That being said, there are a few main differences from regular Dota that have made certain heroes extremely good in the mode. Obviously, we want to win as many games as possible to gather all those unique treasures and so let’s talk briefly about the best heroes in Diretide.

Patch 7.28 WishlistBy KawaiiSocks on

The next patch should be coming some time soon and now is a great time to think about what changes we would like to see the most. While the current iteration of the game is quite well balanced and doesn’t have any glaring problems, it is still getting stale and some shake up feels slightly overdue.

Heroes Who Need a BuffBy Duality on

Balancing a game with as many moving pieces as Dota has always been a difficult task. There are always heroes who come out of patches much more powerful than most and others that fall behind. By now we are probably familiar with most of the strong heroes after seeing them in every pro tournament as well as our pub games. Here are four heroes that fall on the other end of the spectrum and desperately need some buffs to become relevant again.

DPS and You: a Primer on Attack SpeedBy KawaiiSocks on

Once again, we are diving deep into the mechanics and theory of Dota. Last week we touched on the subject of Attack Speed and how it affects DPS and today we would like to expand on this topic.

Old Dota 2 Habits You Should UnlearnBy Duality on

Habitual knowledge can be a good thing but in a game that changes as often as Dota does, there are a lot of outdated concepts still being followed. Let’s talk about a few of these old habits that might help us avoid becoming one of those old guys in a rocking chair shouting, “Get out of my lane, ya young whippersnapper!”

Making Juggernaut and Phantom Assassin Work BetterBy KawaiiSocks on

Phantom Assassin and Juggernaut are two of the most iconic carry heroes in Dota 2. They have been in the game for a very long time, and the latter is often recommended to newer players as the first carry to learn. However, both heroes are currently underperforming in the highest level bracket, and we would like to discuss the reasons behind that.

Tinker is OutdatedBy Kungpaokenny on

For most Dota 2 players, the mention of Tinker’s name usually brings memories of getting bursted by this annoying hero that could never be caught, as he blinks around and refreshes his cooldowns every second. However, the past year has seen Tinker decline in popularity and win rate. Today we are going to discuss why exactly this once fearsome hero is out of meta.

Top Tier Mids in the MetaBy KawaiiSocks on

Identifying top tier mids in the current professional meta is no easy task. Looking at stats from professional games in the current patch, it is clear that many popular picks are heavily underperforming, while more niche ones reign supreme. Today, we are going to concentrate on the latter category: heroes who might not be picked in the first phase in every game, but who have a decidedly above average win rate and popularity.

The Most Overrated Items in DotaBy Duality on

Heroes get most of the attention when patches hit and the meta trends usually follow those buffs and nerfs. Overpowered heroes can be banned however and so it is item changes that usually shape the overall meta due to their consistent presence in every game. Over the last year, reworked items like Monkey King Bar and Abyssal Blade have surged in popularity while formerly popular options fell out of favor. In this article, we are going to explore some of the most overrated items in the game and why these popular purchases are often a huge waste of your precious gold.

Top Tier Carries in the MetaBy KawaiiSocks on

The amount of viable carry heroes is great in the current patch, but there are definitely the ones that stand out above the rest. Today, we are going to look at carries who overperformed in the professional scene.

The Only Pulling Guide You’ll Ever Need By Kungpaokenny on

The way that Dota is being played right now requires 2 players in their individual side lanes to work together in order to come out ahead. One of the best ways to gain an advantage in lane is understanding how to manipulate waves through pulling creeps. Today, we discuss pulling to manage to the lane.
