Trending Up — Support PugnaBy KawaiiSocks on

The meta continues its development after the last patch, but for the most part it feels like a “rich get richer” situation. A lot of heroes who were good initially are now even better, with standouts like Spectre, Wraith King and Slardar still dominating pubs of all levels. There is one interesting newcomer we would like to discuss today, one that seems well suited for the current pubs and who might be making a lot of appearances in the professional scene as well. If you are a support player, Pugna should definitely be on your radar.

Slardar — the Strongest Hero to PlayBy KawaiiSocks on

The meta shake up resulted in the resurgence of a long-forgotten hero. Slardar didn’t receive any direct buffs in 7.34e, but his lane dominance feels a lot more pronounced in the current patch. With some adjustments to itemization, the hero’s power level can be insane, making him one of the toughest opponents to face.

Patch 7.34e First TrendsBy KawaiiSocks on

As Dota fans ourselves we absolutely get it: this is not what we were expecting three whole weeks after TI. As a stats website, though, there are some interesting trends we would love to discuss. Dota is a very complex game with many interconnected moving parts and even miniscule changes can have massive consequences.

How to Get Ahead Early in the New PatchBy KawaiiSocks on

Hopefully the wait is almost over and soon we are once again going to be scrambling for more meta insights. New patch in Dota is always an exciting time, but it is also the best time to rank up and get ahead of the curve. Today we are going to talk about how to use tools provided by Dotabuff to your advantage.

Patch 7.35 WishlistBy KawaiiSocks on

It usually takes a couple of weeks for a new patch to arrive after the International and now is the best time to discuss some of the changes we would love to see. Some of them are going to be very obvious, as there are definitely problematic pub heroes who are both strong and annoying to play against. Other suggestions will be subjective proposals, to encourage a discussion in the comment section below.

The S-Tier Heroes of the InternationalBy KawaiiSocks on

The dust is slowly settling after the biggest Dota tournament of the year and both the teams and the organisers are probably going to take a bit of a rest. That means that for a short period of time we get to collectively benefit from the lessons from the International and apply some of the ideas in our everyday pubs. Today we would like to highlight some of the best TI heroes that will also work well in your own games.

Ignored Heroes of the InternationalBy KawaiiSocks on

Last week we talked about how diverse and flexible the current meta is and the International keeps on delivering. No hero has over 90% contest rate, only three are above 80% and only nine heroes were completely ignored throughout the group stage and the beginning of the playoffs. Today we are going to talk about these heroes and discuss their chances of appearing on the main stage.

The International Group Stage Meta RecapBy KawaiiSocks on

To say that the International Group Stage had some unexpected results would be an understatement. Underperforming WEU, the return to glory for China and EEU dominance made for a very entertaining Group Stage, but the Road to TI has just begun and teams now have several days to re-evaluate their understanding of the meta and adapt to playoffs.

The International Guide: What Kind of Meta Should We Expect?By KawaiiSocks on

Watching The International is very entertaining, regardless of how well you know the game. There are always big highlights, fight-turning ultimates and split-second outplays to be amazed by. But what if we said that the fight begins much earlier? That a big part of the battle happens during the drafting stage and it is when some matches are decided?

The International Guide: Choosing Your TeamBy KawaiiSocks on

If there is one thing that can further elevate your appreciation of the International, it is being emotionally invested in a team. There are many candidates worthy of your attention, but today we will concentrate on the few that stand out in one way or another: teams with rich history, to whom the International is personal.

The Most Iconic Heroes of the InternationalBy KawaiiSocks on

The International is just around the corner and today we want to discuss the most iconic TI heroes and how they fare in the current patch. Historically, TI always had its own meta, with an emphasis on reliable and powerful lockdown. This year might be different, though, as many iconic TI heroes are currently off-meta.

Underrated Heroes to Watch Out ForBy KawaiiSocks on

There are several heroes who are only starting to gain popularity and are still underutilized by the playerbase. Today we want to talk about such heroes and discuss why exactly they fit so well into the current meta and why many professional teams are experimenting with them.

Heroes to Avoid Picking in PubsBy KawaiiSocks on

Habits are hard to break, but it is necessary to adapt to new patches and balance changes. There are several heroes who persist as some of the most popular pub picks, despite being very situational or sometimes even outright bad in the current meta. Today we are going to talk about such heroes and why we think they don’t really belong in above average level pubs.

Heroes Who Can (and Should) Solo Kill TormentorsBy KawaiiSocks on

Maximizing resource gathering on the map is one of the key aspects of Dota. Being more efficient can lead to a snowball effect off the back of some small advantages and ultimately win you the game. One of such advantage is the “free” shard your team can get from Tormentor. Taking it is usually a team effort, however there are several heroes who can (and should) do it by themselves.

Learning From the QualifiersBy KawaiiSocks on

The qualifiers are not over yet, but there are definitely some trends worth paying attention to. Today we would like to highlight three heroes, who overperformed or are overperforming in all regions, making them the best candidates to spam in your everyday pubs.
