TI6 Invites - Favorites & Powerhouses

As The International 2016 approaches, it is time to look closer at the teams attending. After introducing the Wildcard Teams, we take a closer look at the invited teams. Six teams were invited this time around, the least amount of invites to any Valve event so far. As a result, it seemed quite difficult to narrow it down to the truly most deserving teams and discussions sparked, as they always do, when the list of invites was released. People argued whether Fnatic should've been invited over Na'Vi, though ultimately both deserved to be at the event.

How To Deal With Turtling

The introduction of comeback gold mechanics in the aftermath of TI4 have put turtling strategies back into the meta. For a period of time, the early game advantage was less of a game-deciding factor, with hard carries have reigning supreme. Despite being substantially smaller in scale, the comeback gold is still a part of Dota and turtling is a viable option. Identifying and dealing with it is a very necessary skill in the current metagame.
