When your teammates are omniscient bots, there’s no one to blame but yourself.

What can we learn from OpenAI?By KawaiiSocks on

There is a misconception in our community about the purpose of OpenAI—many wrongly assume that it was created to play Dota. That isn’t the case.

The Meta's Top Tier Carries—7.21dBy KawaiiSocks on

The current meta might be slower than a couple of patches ago, but it still rewards proactive play. While many farm-oriented carry heroes are viable and can work really well in certain games, the majority of top tier carries are capable of mid-game pressure, with going late being the plan B.

The Meta's Top Tier Offlaners—7.21dBy KawaiiSocks on

The offlane meta is returning back to its glory days, at least in a sizable percentage of games. Professional teams and individual players are typically looking for an offlaner that offers both good utility and damage, while being relatively gold and experience independent, or capable of securing his own farm early on.

Meta's Top Tier Supports—7.21dBy KawaiiSocks on

Support meta is in a good place right now, with a healthy mix of babysitters, aggressive supports and trilane heroes. Both professional and pub scenes are open for experiments, and there is place and time for pretty much any hero in the game.

When should you play Bounty Hunter?By KawaiiSocks on

Bounty Hunter managed to look both amazing and absolutely inept in the DreamLeague Season 11 Major. When played by Secret.Zai he managed to quickly take control over the lane and come out as the highest net worth hero on the map by minute eight. Attempts to play the hero by other players weren’t as successful.

Is Oracle the best support in the meta?By KawaiiSocks on

We generally refrain from analysing the tournament meta until after the tournament is over, but there is a hero we feel should be covered immediately. Oracle is currently the most popular pick and one of the most successful heroes in DreamLeague Season 11 with a win rate close to 70%.

DreamLeague Stockholm Major Playoffs Begin, Team Secret Dominates Group StageBy eggs on

One Week With MarsBy KawaiiSocks on

After the last several hero releases, Mars can feel like old school Dota. There are no tree jumping abilities, spell duplications, vector targeting or transformations into a ball of pain. Instead, we have a hero that fits right in, and it is a great change of pace.

StarLadder ImbaTV Minor RecapBy KawaiiSocks on

Vici Gaming confidently secured their spot in the upcoming Major in the last week’s StarLadder ImbaTV Minor. Despite questionable play-off format, it was still a very enjoyable tournament which had enough great games to serve as an appetizer before DreamLeague Season 11.
