Kuala Lumpur Major Qualifiers Meta TrendsBy KawaiiSocks on

7.19b and 7.19c changes allowed for some meta developments, and while it may take time for the pubs to adjust, professional players are already adapting. It’s hard to call this adaptation innovative, since for the most part teams went for the “next best thing” of the TI patch, but at least we aren’t watching the same exact Dota as we did during The International 2018.

Dota 7.19c First ImpressionsBy KawaiiSocks on

Valve continues to release small balance patches and now it is highly unlikely we will see major balance changes until after the upcoming announced Minor qualifiers are over. That said, 7.19c brought enough changes to the game to potentially shake up the meta, at least in pubs.

One week with 7.19bBy KawaiiSocks on

There is still a lot of fun to be had in Dota while we wait for the inevitable “big” post-TI patch. 7.19b addressed the biggest issues of the previous patch, but was overall pretty tame, resulting in a meta that isn’t too different from what we were playing for the last couple of months.

The International 2018 Aftermath: Ignored HeroesBy KawaiiSocks on

Four heroes remained ignored throughout the whole tournament. Ignored heroes are to be expected even in long tournaments like the International and only four of them is an indicator of a great meta and high levels of diversity, but all of us would definitely be happier if we could claim that in our game every single hero is viable.
