In the last six months there was a peculiar trend in Dota—some former offlaners have started migrating to the position four support role. It all started with Virtus.Pro and their Weaver. The popularity of Weaver has slightly decreased since, giving way for one of the strongest offlaners to take his spot.
There was a time, back in Dota 1, when Random Draft was the premier mode for tryhard players. Today, as players drift towards All Pick for ranked matchmaking, they’re missing out on essential ways they can improve their Dota game through Random Draft.
The “new Sniper” has been all over pub and pro play in these past few months of the 7.xx era. The new talent system has inspired the fighting Lone Druid build that has been especially remarkable in pro play, resulting in him being the most banned hero (246) during the most recent Kiev Major qualifiers.
We’ve covered how he works, but how exactly does one deal with Lone Druid, especially in pub games, where it is easier for him to be let through?
The fight is finally over, and eight teams have joined the Kiev Major final selection. This time around the qualifiers were handled differently, with some of the regions split into two. It allowed for fairer competition, with similar pings for various teams, and guaranteed South American and CIS representation at the event.
Across all regions at the ongoing Kiev Major Qualifiers, Keeper Of The Light is currently the 7th most contested hero, the 2nd most contested support, and the 4th most banned hero, right below Slardar and Centaur Warrunner. KotL, once a niche pick, has seen his role as a defensive and passive support evolve into one of the top picks of the current meta.
In the past year, the carry role has seen vast changes. New items, such as Dragon Lance or Echo Sabre, have revitalized long forgotten carries and changes to neutral creeps have changed the rhythm of the game. Whatever carry hero is popular, and why, is usually a good indicator for what the meta has in store. Drow Ranger dictated the meta for the longest time in 2016 and 6.88. But which heroes were the dominant forces in 7.00-7.02?
