Top Carries in 7.29By KawaiiSocks on

The final part in our series, where we discuss the most reliable and successful heroes in each position. Today, we make it to position one heroes: the carries. Compared to the previous patch, there are certainly massive shifts in which heroes are doing well and while we were predicting the resurgence of ranged carries, the actual meta seems to have developed around characters who are in some way counters to the ranged cores.

Top Position Four Supports in 7.29By KawaiiSocks on

Position four support role is one of the most fun roles to play in the current patch. There is a wide variety of heroes that are viable in this position and given the current state of the economy, it is slightly easier to earn money as a support. Recently added and changed Shards are also allowing many heroes to be experimented with as the offlane support. That said, there are still heroes who clearly stand out and are statistically the most reliable soft support heroes.

Top Mids in 7.29By Duality on

For the first time in a few years, there has been a pretty big shake-up to the basic structure of mid lane Dota. The lane is less random thanks to the delaying of power runes until six minutes. The consistent Bottle refills from Water Runes and 3-minute Bounties have also removed a lot of the potential for early pressure as well. At the moment, there appear to be a few different ways to maneuver the mid lane meta. We're going to review the top mid heroes of 7.29.

Top Position Five Supports in 7.29By KawaiiSocks on

Many things can change the balance of power in the support role. Meta shifts, item alterations, and even global economy changes all have a major impact on the typically first phase picks. It is hard to react to the enemy draft when you are essentially picking blind, hence some foresight is almost mandatory, especially at the higher levels of play, where meta more closely resembles the professional one. Today, we want to have a look at supports you can’t go wrong with in the current patch.

Top Offlaners in 7.29By Duality on

When Icefrog deleted Necronomicon from the game he executed a sort of hard reset on the offlane meta. Just before the patch dropped there simply wasn’t a better option than a Beastmaster with a Necro book. Throughout patch 7.28 we had seen some interesting trends of ranged offlaners like Viper, Outworld Devourer as well as more traditional team fighters such as Tidehunter. In most games though, you’d just prefer to have a Beastmaster.

Is Support Visage Back?By KawaiiSocks on

Support Visage is a concept that has been virtually ignored for many years now. Back in the day of trilanes, it was one of the scariest things you could go up against, but through direct nerfs and changes in the meta, Visage was first tamed and then repurposed for primarily mid play. Today, we would like to have a look at whether there is perhaps a place for Visage in the support role and if so, how would it work?

The Biggest Winners of Patch 7.29By KawaiiSocks on

When discussing the biggest winners of patch 7.29, it is important to make one clarification: the biggest winners do not necessarily mean the best heroes to play right now. Several heroes have gained upwards of 5% win rate, but it didn’t make them the new meta staples; it simply made them more viable. Most of the heroes we are going to discuss today belong to that category: they have gained the most win rate, they are slightly above average, and definitely worth exploring, but they are not necessarily the new OP choices. At least for now.

The Biggest Losers of Patch 7.29By KawaiiSocks on

Patch 7.29 didn’t touch hero balance all that much: most of the changes have to do with either economy or item balance. This, however, had a massive impact on the viability of a lot of heroes, with some of them becoming virtually unplayable at a high level. Today we would like to have a look at heroes who, in our opinion, either need some pretty significant buffs or should be ignored by victory-oriented players for the time being.

The Three Ways to Play DawnbreakerBy Duality on

The first thing you need to realize when picking Dawnbreaker is the hero classification of “carry” is completely wrong. Nothing about Dawnbreaker’s skill set indicates she has any carry potential. So take that word and throw it in the trash. Instead, let’s talk about what Dawnbreaker does well.

Is Support Dazzle Back?By KawaiiSocks on

While we are still gathering data on the biggest winners and losers of the patch and how the overall meta has been affected, there is one thing that immediately stood out: the potential return of the Support Dazzle archetype. He is among the biggest winners of the patch and a personal favorite as well, so today we would like to discuss his viability back in the support role and how to squeeze the maximum out of it.

Patch 7.29 First ImpressionsBy KawaiiSocks on

The new patch is here and it is filled with new things to explore or re-discover. KawaiiSocks and Elevated are sharing their first impressions on the new hero and what the overall changes mean for the meta.

Heroes Who Could Really Use a NerfBy KawaiiSocks on

It is usually much harder to advocate towards nerfs than it is to hope for buffs: making heroes weaker usually makes them less fun to play. Sometimes it is the only solution, however. Sometimes heroes are simply too strong, resulting in them being banned too often in the professional scene and being too obnoxious in pubs. So today, we are discussing heroes who could really use a nerf, perhaps even for their own sake.

Support Luna and the Power of AnimeBy Duality on

When Dota: Dragon’s Blood dropped on Netflix it was pretty obvious that the characters showcased in it would probably see some extra play in the coming weeks. Sure enough, Mirana, Dragon Knight, and Luna all got a small boost to their pick rates despite not being super popular in the meta. For the most part, there hasn’t been a lot of innovation for any of these heroes in a very long time. Then, I tuned into the Singapore Major and saw several Chinese teams running support Luna and winning with it.

Heroes Who Could Really Use a BuffBy KawaiiSocks on

The first LAN tournament in what feels like ages is over and we are promised a patch some time next week. While overall it feels like the current meta and hero pool was pretty diverse for both professional and pub play, there are still some heroes who were completely ignored throughout the major and who aren’t too hot in pubs either. Heroes who could really use a buff.

Collection of Dota 2 ConceptsBy DotabuffTeam on

With the release of DOTA: Dragon's Blood this week on Netflix, we thought this was a good time to review some Dotabuff posts that describe and explore some of the basics of Dota 2. Whether you're new to the game, coming back after a break, or are an active player already, we think there's something here for everyone.
