Arlington Major Group Stage Meta RecapBy KawaiiSocks on

There were one hundred and twenty eight matches played during the group stage of the Arlington Major and somehow, despite seventeen teams being mostly in agreement about the current meta, there were a lot of unique and unconventional picks. Let’s have a look at heroes who stood out throughout the group stage.

Major Trends: have Zeus and Tiny Been Figured Out?By KawaiiSocks on

Tiny is the most contested hero of the Major so far with a hundred percent pick and ban rate. Despite high popularity, or perhaps because of it, his winrate is very low, falling below 40%. Zeus is in a somewhat similar position: he was played in seven games, only winning one. Are the heroes actually overvalued or are there other reasons for their poor performance? Let’s take a look.

PGL Arlington Major Preview: The Dark HorsesBy KawaiiSocks on

Dark Horses are the most exciting part of every tournament. A team very few have high hopes for, but who have shown moments of brilliance and are guaranteed to upset at least one of the heavy favorites. Today we are going to look at the most exciting Dark Horses of the Arlington Major.

PGL Arlington Major Preview: Tournament FavoritesBy KawaiiSocks on

The Major starts in under a week and right now is the best time to have a look at the participants and gauge their strength. A lot of teams will have to play with a stand-in and that will definitely impact their performance. Because of that, some of them can no longer be considered tournament favorites and they will have to give up preview spotlight to other teams.

Hidden Imba: Morphling Aghanim'sBy KawaiiSocks on

Every once in a while we stumble upon an idea, a concept, that looks too good on paper to be true. Most of the time, when tested in a real game or scrutinized in a test lobby these concepts either fall apart or prove to be a lot less exciting. It is not the case with Morphling’s Aghanim’s Scepter and in our opinion it might be one of the most underrated items in the game.

What is up with Zeus?By KawaiiSocks on

It is no secret that Zeus has been trending up in high level games. The addition and buffs to his mobility on top of the previous solution of simply increasing his attack damage made for a very powerful and borderline overpowered mid hero who can trade in lane, avoid ganks, farm up and help his team from the comfort of his lane.

Summer Tour Meta RecapBy KawaiiSocks on

With the DPC Tour over and, unfortunately, still no news on the upcoming patch, it is a good time to have a look at the current state of the professional meta and figure out what heroes and why are being picked at the highest level of play. Professional meta usually doesn’t translate into pub meta in a straightforward fashion, but knowing what to strive for and what heroes can theoretically dominate if you play them well is still incredibly important.

Насколько хороши самые популярные Шарды?By KawaiiSocks on

Aghanim's Shards сильно разнятся в своей эффективности. Некоторые из них можно полностью игнорировать, а некоторые сейчас являются причиной, по которой герой берется в драфт. Сегодня мы бы хотели обсудить пять самых популярных Shard'ов на паб-сцене и понять, заслуживают ли они столько внимания.

Arc Warden: the Phantom MenaceBy KawaiiSocks on

Arc Warden is a 53%+ win rate hero in all skill brackets this week, maintaining a relatively high popularity. In brackets below Divine his win rate is actually closer to 57% and while it is no secret that Arc Warden is one of the most popular smurf heroes, we believe that he might actually be overpowered. Today we want to discuss why exactly.

Спектра — рабочий героя?By KawaiiSocks on

Если посмотреть на тренды в пабах высокого уровня на этой неделе, можно там заметить одного интересного персонажа. Спектра сейчас является героем, на котором многие игроки пытаются набить руку, и сегодня мы попытаемся понять почему, а также как играть героем как профессионалы.

The Return of the BabysitterBy KawaiiSocks on

For a very long time the meta was dominated by ganking and aggressive supports. Position five Rubick was normal, Lion was the most popular support hero in the game and sometimes even Tidehunter was played as a five. With the last patch things changed a bit, though, and right now a completely different type of hero is statistically on top.

Viper: Win the Lane—Win the GameBy KawaiiSocks on

There is a common misconception about Viper being weak past the laning stage. He is seen as a lane dominating hero that falls off a cliff as early as midgame. That is not necessarily true anymore. Today we want to share how professional players squeeze the maximum out of this both venomous and poisonous menace.

Играем на саппорте МарсиBy KawaiiSocks on

Добавление Марси в капитанский режим дало нам очень много новых идей, о том как правильно играть на герое. За счёт сильных инструментов инициации и высокой мобильности, Марси стала очень сильным саппортом на про-сцене, особенно в паре с независимыми корами на линии. Сегодня мы бы хотели обсудить как именно героем играют на про-сцене и как повторить этот успех в пабах.

Hidden Gems of 7.31dBy KawaiiSocks on

Мы не знаем когда выйдет следующий патч, поэтому будет неплохой идеей посмотреть на то, какие герои в текущей мете заслуживают дополнительного внимания. Даже с учётом того, что игра не обновлялась уже долгое время, остаются персонажи, которых сильно недооценивают, и на которых можно с легкостью поднимать свой рейтинг.
