Proud and Ursi are covering the entirety of the post-TI balance patch 7.19b! It’s mostly nerfs to top-picked TI heroes that we somewhat expected but a lot of smaller, more interesting nerfs and some interesting overall changes to our pubs before the upcoming major patch we expect sometime around a month from now!
On this week’s Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi are completing their new-hero trist with Grimstroke by playing him and trying to convince Ursi he needs to become a Grimstroke spammer (spoiler: he will be)! We’re also casually covering our strategy now that we’re trying to play and climb more seriously, a lot of lane partner pair-ups with Grimstroke, how to fit Earthshaker into a team comp, why pubs are bad at Spectre even though she’s great, adapting pro or high-level strategies into your pub play, countering a defensive duo safelane, Mario’s advantures in dimensional portals, and plenty more!
On this week’s Weach me Wednesday, Proud & Bee give you the low-down on everything Grimstroke; from items to skill builds, his abilities and how to play him! They also discuss Clinkz’s clarity consumption, why no one builds Battlefury anymore, some predictions on what the upcoming patch will bring and more.
Proud, Bee, and Ursi are all back from The International and covering their favorite bits, least favorite bits, looking ahead to next year’s TI (for better or worse), covering their new motivations to actually be appreciably better at Dota, and plenty more! We’re also covering our favorite players, our favorite storylines, and other pro-dota related topics we rarely cover on the regular shows!
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!
