Fast-push strategy is dead?
Fast-push strategy is dead?
Overlooked the enemy strategy at the draft stage? With an 80% chance, you have already lost - simply because there is still no adequate response against a good aggressive fast-push pick. To be honest, I don't know why professional E-sportsmen super rarely use an effective fast-push tactic because it used to work perfectly. There are many tiny reworks of the last 7.30-7.31 patch, which testifies that Icefrog hints at the birth of a new possible meta ahead of International 2022. But if it works in practice, let's analyze.

It's stupid if somebody supposes that Topson's magnetic energy and abnormal item builds don't assist him in succeeding in public games. Recently on his official YouTube channel appeared records of his Rubick gameplay. To tell the truth, the word "plays" weakly describes Chad's masterpiece playstyle. Chadson detects the account buyer and humiliates him with Aghs on min 16!

Shivas Guard – an artifact that doesn't rework since Dota Allstars
Recently, Dota 2 had an update, 7.31d, which included many changes, but the developers did not touch on one exciting artifact - Shiva's Guard. It is an artifact that previously belonged to one goddess and retains some of its former power.

Let's consider what characteristics this artifact has, its pros and cons, and so on.

Tundra is an overrated team of the current DCP season
Everyone said that Tundra didn't make it to TI because of the stupid DPC system. Tundra Esports finished their way to PGL Major Arlington 2022 in Dota 2 and set the last place, leaving group B. For dozens of fans, Tundra showed the worst Dota in the current DPC season, which turned out to be a shock. It seems that behind the flair of the genius of the 33rd, we forgot that Tundra has never been a stable and strong team. And below, I'll explain why.

Lasse "MATUMBAMAN" Urpalainen is a Finnish Dota 2 player currently playing for Team Liquid. He started to play DotA Allstars for a year before Dota 2 came out, as did many players. "One of my friends received the invitation keys quite early and gave one to me", - said Lasse on the TI-10. Since then, MATUMBAMAN began to "grind" - sometimes more, sometimes less, as there was a personal life. Let's discuss how MATUMBAMAN started his career in Dota 2.
Invoker semi support: pros and cons
Invoker semi support: pros and cons
Once upon a time, nobody can't imagine Invoker beyond the pale of mid-lane. Classic Exort skill builds, fast Midas, and 15-min stage farming style with double Forge Spirit surprise no one on public games. Experiments with alternative skill and item point options, for example – Invoker-carry with Daedalus or Invoker-jungle, frequently ended with ally throne fall and dozens of reports. Meanwhile, Icefrog decided to swap meta trends in 7.30, which opens the prospect's gate for up-to-date Invoker operating and maneuvering on the map. Hero for rage-finger players is now available to ordinary cyber athletes who are accustomed to Quas+Wex ability draft
