On this week’s Teach Me Thursday Bee and Ursi are trying their absolute darndest to talk about Dota 2 despite an onslaught of fantastic tangents! For the bulk of the show we’re covering Bee’s continued experience as a blossoming mid player, building up her mid pool to be as robust as necessary but not spread too thin, and troubleshooting some of her troublesome match-ups! Then we’re answering questions around Mjolnir’s place in item builds, dealing with all those darn child Invokers, how to efficiently manage your emotional currency when met with dota fools, and what to do when you’re a techies who is trying their best to be a team player!
Patch 7.22F just came out so Ursi and Proud are doing our live first reactions and theorycrafting of all the changes, both big and small! We’re going to go into hiding after the Tinker buffs so maybe this is our final show
TmT: Melting Minds & Mids On today’s Teach Me Thursday (or Friday), Proud goes over Bee’s recent dota games. After quite a long break, Bee has returned back to dota on the hottest day of the year, playing Bristleback & Queen of Pain rather than the usual support heroes. They discuss item builds on Bristle and how to generally be a tanky lad and then they go over a successful QoP mid game and discuss the entire laning phase and how it could have been improved.

For the game this week Proud plays mid Kunkka for the first time while Ursi plays 5 support Magnus!

We also cover our personal patch highlights, our past Week in Dota as always, and plenty more! For the game we try out a super interesting 1 Slardar build Proud picked up and is working on while Ursi attempts to get back into his good pal Pangolier but is met with roadblocks.

Sorry this came out late, I decided to do nothing instead of do something so that’s the reason. Also all the stuff we use to publish had a bunch of updates so if anything’s not working right let me know I refuse to ever double check myself.
Just Think About It
