5 Years of Dotabuff By Lawliepop on

5 Years ago today we launched Dotabuff.com. It started with a very simple homepage that was driven by search. Compared to now the site seemed much simpler and was strictly focused on basic player statistics. Dota as a game was in a more of a speculative place, and quite a bit closer to Dota 1 in a lot of ways. Finally, at the 5 year mark we have been out of beta longer than Dota 2 itself.

Ignored But Not Forgotten - The Unpicked Heroes of TI7By Skim on

The International 2017 saw 107 different heroes picked across the entire event, 109 were picked or banned. These are record breaking numbers, records set by the event just the year before, at TI6. With a meta so diverse where nearly all 112 available heroes seem situational enough to be picked, one can’t help but wonder what has to be wrong with the heroes that haven’t been considered even once.

Last year, the forgotten heroes of TI6 were the likes of Leshrac, Bloodseeker, Lina and Visage, all of which have been buffed since then and have seen much more play as well. That means, the ignored heroes from TI7 may have a couple of buffs ahead of them.

The First Two Days of TI7By Skim on
