The AniMajor taught us some pretty interesting things about the current meta in Dota 2. Today, we're looking specifically at three heroes who embody the support archetype in the current meta by being flexible, hard-to-kill, and excellent mid-game bait.
We know the winner of the last Major of the season, we know the teams who will participate in TI and we know that there are still some eight-legged things to iron out balance-wise before the biggest esports tournament of the year. For now, though, we want to have a closer look at an incredible Kyiv event and its most iconic heroes.
The AniMajor is approaching its final stage, but there are still almost 30 unpicked heroes in the tournament, heroes who could really use a buff to be more competitive or unique in their skillset. Some of them we might be happy about — they were either a part of the previous meta or are annoying to play against. Some, like the ones we want to discuss...
The Wild Card and the Group Stage are over and it is time to look at how the meta changed from what we expected before the Major and how it might look like in the Playoffs. While there are certainly some problems with the current patch, one of which has eight legs and more or less has to be banned against certain teams, it is still pretty diverse overall.
We get excited every time the group stage of a major international tournament kicks off. It is super cool to see how each region has interpreted the meta and what heroes everyone seems to agree on as the strongest. With the WePlay AniMajor rolling, we are getting to see how the 7.29 patch meta has developed over the past few months.
Silencer was the only hero that was completely ignored in the Upper Divisions of all DPC regions. The hero who received several notable buffs in the last several patches is still largely considered unplayable in the professional scene and we wanted to figure out why, while also discussing whether the hero should also be ignored in pubs.
Evil Geniuses recently lost a game to Quincy Crew because of a bug that had existed for quite a long time. After the game, that bug was patched out, causing us to consider when these unintended interactions are features or bugs.
What separates a good patch from a great one is often the sheer amount of viable strategies and playstyles. It is underwhelming to see multiple or even all regions converging on the same pool of heroes with very little deviation, even if the game is well balanced within those confines. We are happy to say that 7.29 is definitely a great patch and the...
Any time there is a big patch, a few heroes will fall through the cracks in the meta shuffle that ensues. We have already covered some of the best and brightest shining heroes in all the roles so be sure to check out those articles if you haven’t already. In this one, we are going to dig a little deeper into the developing hero meta to find some diamonds...
As of about halfway through the DPC season, Warlock was the most picked and highest win rate hero in North America. He was also outside of the top 30 picks in nearly every other region. As of today, Warlock is still the most picked hero in North America with an incredible 69.57% win rate. It has also been noticed by the European pro teams and has jumped...
