TcT: Icicle Tigers ft. Phantom Assassin & Centaur


On this week’s Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi break into the first day of the group stage matches of TI, super-late-game decision making after Ursi had a 83 minute game this week, and plenty more! For our main segment we’re covering the trends from day 1 of the Group Stage which can be summarized as “we’re really smart and all of pro dota listens to this show please hire us”! For heroes we’re covering a stat-focused PA build Proud and Ursi are both in love with and Ursi is playing offlane Centaur! At the end we cover our TI content & meet-up plans as well as Proud’s tour guide to Vancouver!

TmT: Bee the Mid Player Edition


 
On this week’s Teach Me Tuesday Bee and Ursi work on a beginner’s guide to mid as Bee’s started to pick up the position and embrace her heel turn into a mid player (maybe, kind of)! We’re specifically talking a lot about Shadow Fiend, the different archetypal mid roles, and when you should actually gank side lanes (regardless of your teammates’ whining)! For questions we’re burning through quite a few and covering everything from mid broodmother to Axe’s tempo to farm efficiency, force staff efficiency, and plenty more!

TcT: Please Kill Me ft. Carry CM


On this week’s Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi fly too close to the sun by attempting to play core Crystal Maiden by abusing her +250 attack speed talent and it goes as expected. It’s a great example, if a little strange, of how the proper process of theorycrafting a new build should go when it comes to analyzing a hero’s strengths and weaknesses and building around to amplify strengths while mitigating potential weaknesses. For our weak in Dota we have Ursi realizing he’s a terrible Invoker player and Proud explains exactly how one figures out how to approach the game strategically once they’ve taken all the outer towers and are forced to figure out how to approach high ground (hint: its about buying a gem!). All this and more on this week’s show!

TcT: Try Daedalus Maybe ft. Tiny & Dark Willow


On this week’s Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi try Daedalus Tiny and are never the same afterwards. Ursi’s playing his newfound love Dark Willow and having a grand old time with all her combos and whatnot. For our segment we’re focusing on Creep Cutting and how this relatively simple tactic can win you plenty of pubs so long as you’re aware of it, set yourself up for it properly, and execute it well! All this and more on this week’s show!

TcT: Becoming Zen & Eating Mangoes ft. Patch 7.19


On this week’s Teach Me Tuesday Beedub and Ursi are covering the brand new patch 7.19, how to counter Phoenix & Morphling, analyzing Bee’s recent pub losing streak, Ursi becoming relaxed & zen this week in his pubs, and plenty more! For listener questions we’re covering efficient mango usage, why Aquila is so OP, when to buy gems, Octarine Core in general, whether or not we should bother investing time into Enchantress since she’s strong right now, and how best to survive on a deserted island.

TcT: Dota Is A Knife Fight ft. CM & Wraith King(edited)


 
On this week’s Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi are going over a whole slew of observations about the recent metagame, their observations from watching day 1 of The Summit, why Phoenix is a god, Ursi’s attempts to make 4 Kunkka work again, Proud’s attempts to make LD work again, Proud playing with Jenkins, and plenty else! For heroes we’re covering Crystal Maiden in depth, especially the whole mystique around her +250 attack speed talent, and Wraith King, who loves his kids!

TMT: Respecter the Spectre


This week’s episode is all about Spectre! Proud sheds some light on Bee’s recent Spectre games and what went wrong/right with haunting, itemization, farming & more. They also discuss high ground pressure and when to back, big ults with big cooldowns, what to do when you team takes bad fights, how to avoid Skywrath’s wrath & what to do when heroes are missing.
