Techies pos-4 in CM: Pro's playstyle

Valve, since 2015, finally reworked Techies. Techies-miner gameplay, who roams separately from teammates the whole match, eventually ends. Firstly, Techies underwent a rather massive rework eight years ago in the New Dota Reborn patch. Icefrog replaced Land Mines with Proximity Mines, which is no longer revealed with True Sight, and changed the ability Suicide Squad Attack to Blast Off, which no longer denies Techies. It was times when Techies forced enemies to be more careful and acquire dozens of sentry wards since he set bombs, traps, and remote mines all over the map. It was the hero with the lowest attack rate, 26-29 points, and move speed of 275 MS, and instead, he could perform a suicidal explosion, dealing massive damage to all the heroes next to him and denying himself.
Techies pos-4 in CM: Pro's playstyle

New Techies has an ordinary attack rate, low-cooldown Sticky bomb, Reactive Tazer, which protects the hero from physical attacks, and upgraded Blast Off, which deals 3-second stun and 600 damage. The long-awaited rework is intended to transform hero gameplay and make Techies less annoying for other players. 

Lane stage

Techies' damage has been increased to 46-48 points, mixed with good inborn attack range, he can harass opponents' double-lane quite well. Moreover, Techies has strong nuke spells:  Sticky bomb with slowing 25% effect and 6-sec cooldown on max level, and Blast Off deals 200 damage on level one. In fact, any add stun or offlaner nuke allows Techies to demolish enemy support once the first creep wave moves. Techies spell guide is simple 1-3-1-3-1 focusing on max magical damage impact. 

 

Start your item build with Tranquil Boots, Soul Ring, Magic Wand, Aghanim's Shard, and then due to the game situation. Ethereal Blade is a consistently good option to “one-shot” opponents if you have extra gold to purchase this item. Usually, core heroes have much more gold so that pos-4 Techies can afford less supreme items. Kaya or Aether Lens multiplies Techies' damage deal with a colluded minefield zone or Blast Off + Sticky Mine combination. Remember that Veil of Discord is also a cheap item for Techies, which still amplifies magic damage at game start, especially if your offlane mate picks caster. 

Team fights and team coordination 

  

Premediating your minefields and deal maximum damage. Simple and profitable combination: first activate Tazer on yourself, then jump into enemies and quickly set all the mines. It’s recommended to set all 3 charges of Proximity Mines. To make it rapidly, use shift+ command. Remember, Proximity Mines can’t be placed within 350 AOE of other PM. The most annoying Techies counterpicks will be personages, which can interrupt his combo. Supports who can catch, stun, or slow Techies, such as Abaddon, Tusk, Spirit Breaker, Shadow Shaman, and Nyx, are good at this. Another method to counter Techies is to find him first and kill him before the whole combo. It’s a Feasible task for magic nukers like Puck, Queen of Pain, or Tiny. 

Pro’s about reworked Techies 

International 2021 Jaroslav Miposhka on his YouTube channel said: 

It’s really just fun to play now, but it will be a mistake if Valve adds Techies to CM

David MoonMeander Tan from TSM roster considers that Techies gameplay seemed easy, as opponents were simply exposed to bombs, but it’s better to test hero to find out how it works in the competitive Dota. 

Winstrike Team actor Nikita Daxak Kuzmin shared with viewers on Twitch stream his opinion about Techies: 

Techies used to be clean for people with zero IQ as you-know-who

Tundra Esports player Neta 33 Shapira wrote a witty comment on Twitter:

You don’t care how much Techies imba until you enter the forest and die of mines

As a result, Techies pos-4 provides team impact by assisting and killing in the early game, thus ensuring a farm for cores and successful team fights.

How to communicate effectively in Dota 2
I know that we all "enjoy" screaming to voice chat, but it’s like kicking the dead horse if you want to win a match. Undoubtedly, you have to follow a more skilled player, especially if he has much more matchmaking points than you are. Have you ever heard the phrase, "I don't know why this is right, but I'm sure it's right"? In our slang, it is called game sense.

Chen - Top-1 Arlington Major Star-Support
Do you know what I want to say ab this major? I like it. Really fun games and an unimaginable LAN foundation. By the way, in the end, it turns out that China will take 2 out of 3 places, and this is without Xtreme gaming. But, I will discuss that aspect in more detail later. For a long time, Chen was considered as butterflies in the stomach, but present-day Arlington Major shows us how deep mistakes we all made.
