Throughout the history of Dota, many heroes have been considered overpowered and to a certain degree it is normal—some patches are going to favor certain heroes more. Very few, however, have ever reached the degree of strength Outworld Devourer once had—in the last year only 6.83 Sniper could potentially boast the same degree of popularity and success. Today we’ll discuss the return of OD into pub and pro metas and what changes have resulted in his rise to the top.
The Shanghai Major is about a month away and it’s then when we will see the true strengths of this patch. However, we very likely already have a good idea of what to expect. Let's talk about the MDL and StarLadder trends in the meta.
Blink Dagger or Shadow Blade? For Blink Dagger, its purpose is obvious for supports, as it unlocks the potential for long range initiation with stuns and ultimates. Shadow Blade’s purpose is a little more nuanced when it comes to fulfilling its uses for initiation, escape, or split push. What is not subtle, however, are the three heroes whom Valve has recommended Shadow Blade as a “core” item: Drow Ranger, Kunnka, and Sniper. It’s no surprise that Shadow Blade is among the top 3 most built items on these heroes in pubs, much to the detriment of everyone involved.
Did you know that AdmiralBulldog has a YouTube Channel? Did you know that Dendi’s Twitter account is called “DendiBoss”? In this day and age, social media is all around us, but there is simply so much of it, that it becomes difficult to consume it all. It becomes easy to lose track of who’s on what and what username they have, simply because no platform is esports exclusive.
Our new social feature will help see through the jungle of twitter handles.
Earth Spirit has made it into captain's mode and is now among the most contested heroes in the game. He has a unique skillset that makes him valuable for almost any team composition. A hero not yet fully established in the public, but a hero that is here to stay.
Despite only qualifying for the Situational tier in our pub tier list, Legion Commander is definitely worth discussing. The pick rate of the hero has been on a steady rise, reaching slightly over 25%, making her the 4th most popular hero in Dota. However, her win rate cannot be called impressive, decreasing rapidly from its highest at 49% in the 2-3k bracket to 45% in the 5k+ bracket. Today, we would like to go over how to utilize the hero better,while addressing some issues players might face.
