Three OP heroes in the 7.07 patch

Heroes, which, in recent times were not particularly popular, can again become relevant. The popular analyst Shane in his tweet lists the characters that we’ll probably see next month.

Doom | Reborn in fire

doom dota 2

Recently Doom increasingly appears on the professional stage. Players of the Team Empire Miposhka and Chappie played as Doom on the DreamLeague introductions early. Zai also played as Doom during his speech yesterday at WCA Qualifiers. The hero’s  win rate in high-skill is 52%, but low-skill player nearly forgot about this hero and Doom has a low percentage of winrate.

The tree of talents gives a special impression in comparison with other heroes. At the 20th level, Doom can devour ancient creeps. “His Infernal blade has a divine power,” Shane said.

“The hero sets the enemy on fire with his burning sword, stun for 0.3 sec. Target is on for 4.0 seconds. and gets 40 + 1.25% / 2.5% / 3.75% / 5% damage from maximum health per second, and the cooldown on level 4 is only 4 seconds. “

The presence of the game character on the pro-stage grows the same as in the pub, just think about his capabilities. The absence of Doom in games does not give the right to forget about him.

Chaos Knight | From Chaos we born to Chaos we will come

chaos knight dota 2

Recently, the Chaos Knight was been performed well by Resolut1on and Crystallize on the qualifications WCA EU. His winrate is 54.8%, and over the past week, it has grown to 55.5%, making him this month the seventh on the list of the most successful heroes. At the moment, the “knight” is on the rise. The slowly growing popularity of Chaos Knight is part of a new trend for heroes based on illusions that can end the game and rise to enemy high grounds, which has become more difficult since the appearance of the shrines.

CK pick rate patch 7.06

Manta Style & Heart of Tarrasque make illusions harsher, and they are quite difficult to kill without a good counter in the opponent’s team. Chaos Knight absolutely destroys single heroes, such as Viper, Wraith King, Ursa, Huskar, etc. To deal with Chaos Knight, you need heroes such as Earthshaker, Jakiro,  Sand King or other heroes with good AoE damage. Omniknight is also a good counterpick to the Chaos Knight.

Spirit Breaker | He will chase you until you dead

spirit breaker dota 2

The current meta-game is very focused on all stages of the game. The best hero for this need is a hero who can attack among the entire map. The Spirit Breaker has a great mobility.

The hero does not need to be constantly present on the lines, he is too cool for this, just give him the opportunity to run around on the map. He gives visions, can handle most of the characters one on one, and his abilities have short cooldowns, which is the key factor why the Spirit Breaker is deadly. With the recent hero again begins to gain popularity.

The hero is easy to learn, and the thoughts about the bombLifestealer Naix -Spirit Breaker” make you shudder enemies. If the Spirit Breaker plays against you, then you need to focus on the wards as much as possible. Eul’s Scepter cancels Charge of Darkness and makes the character look like a fool. A firm purchase.

“If my team has a Spirit Breaker, the chances of winning increases up to 80%, he just kills everything that moves,” Shane joked.

 

Dota 2 | Meta 7.06f | Best heroes to rise MMR

Best Champions for MMR Boosting in 7.06f

As we all know, Dota 2 is developing every day, and every new patch brings something new to the game. That’s why our portal wants to please you with another article on the topic: how and on whom to raise MMR in patch 7.06f.

Windranger

Windranger Dota 2

This month, with the 7.06f patch Windranger, has a win rate of 49.62% and a pick rate of 14.72% on average on all ratings. Over the past two weeks, we have seen a rise in popularity and share of victories – and there are reasons for this. In the new patch, the character changed the Shackleshot’s ability a little, namely, increased the duration from 1.5 / 2.25 / 3 / 3.75 to 2.0 / 2.6 / 3.2 / 3.8, but also increased the recharge time from 12 to 18/16/14/12.

It is worth noting that Windranger was not popular in the past The International 2017, but the hero is quite popular on all ratings. With a nice attack animation, escape, a good ability to deal damage and no less useful ultimacy, with the proper assembly of artifacts and the pumping of the right talents, this character can become the cause of many of your victories.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

On the example of the professional player Ludwig ‘zai’ Wolberg, we can consider how to win on this hero. Of course, in the process of the game you can, and sometimes even need to bring something of your own, but for the template, you can take this particular model. zai from the very beginning of the game actively moves around the map and tries to help his teammates. With pumped to the fourth level Powershot zai literally destroys his enemies one by one, thereby capturing the superiority at the beginning of the game. Lovely in the meta of the present time, Linken’s Sphere artifact is perfectly combined with the mobility of this hero, especially with an abundance of opponents with targeted abilities.

The talent that appeared in Windranger in patch 7.06, giving invisibility to Windrun is almost the best talent in the game, and, undoubtedly, it is worth paying attention to. Even if the enemy will actively use items that help overcome your invisibility, a short recharge of Windrun in combination with the above Linken’s Sphere is unlikely to leave them any chance to defeat you. To sum up, I’d like to add that by the 30th minute of the game Windranger is able to defeat almost any opponent one-on-one with appropriate artifacts and with the help of Shackleshot and Focus Fire.

Sven

Sven Dota 2

This hero was and remains one of the strongest carry in Dota 2. Along with the other heroes of this position, Sven is the most stable and easy to implement character. The ability Warcry in the aftermath of the last patch has received increased recharge. This change can not make Warcry, giving at the last level of pumping 20 units of armor, bad for the implementation of the ability, so that Sven did not become the less dangerous hero.

With his Great Cleave ability, a character with the help of allies can easily obtain the necessary artifacts to complete the game. At the moment, Sven Sven has a win rate of 52.77% and with the correct use of this hero, you can literally win alone.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

It would seem that everything is so easy and understandable when playing on this hero, but it is worth taking into account a couple of points in order to win. In its swing of ability, preference is given to the Great Cleave, because it is this ability that allows you to quickly farm your line and the forest. Ideally, you should ask your allies to make stacks in the jungle, in order to quickly acquire the necessary items. Do not be greedy with skills when killing ancient creeps, so you can quickly deal with them and return to the farm on the line, or even join your allies in killing an enemy hero.

On the example of the Jordanian champion of The International 2017, Amera “Miracle” al-Barkawi, you can see that he mines gold for twenty minutes and then destroys two heroes of the opposing team alone. Mask of Madness in the absence of a lot of instant damage from enemies, combined with God’s Strength simply does not leave a chance for your enemies. And if your team has a hero like Enigma or Magnus, you can not only have full domination over the enemy throughout the game, but you can also turn almost lost matches. All in your hands!

 

Lion

Lion Dota 2

If the above characters are only suitable for players who prefer the main roles in the game, then Lion will be a pleasant surprise for those who prefer to play the role of support in the game. Win rate of this character at the moment has a weak indicator – 47.56%, but it has grown very much in comparison with the indicators a month ago. In patch 7.06f, Lion’s 20 level talent has been changed from + 8% to +300 damage from Finger of Death, which gave to the already strong ability a good boost.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

Considering Lion as an independent support it’s worth noting that it is able to keep the enemy hero under control as much as 6.6 seconds with Earth Spike and Hex, which can become a critical time for many enemies. Often and without the help of the team, Lion quite successfully copes with the enemy hero and can kill him alone, but the participation of your teammates will not be superfluous and you can turn the game in your direction without any problems. The aforementioned Finger of Death in combination with Aether Lens and Aghanim Scepter without magical protection can inflict 1500 damage to the enemy on the area, which is simply unbelievable.

Also, Lion is very mobile and useful at the beginning of the game thanks to the assembly of Tranquil Boots and its Mana Drain abilities. Do not forget that the presence of support in the game, and in particular such as our hero contributes to your unconditional victory over the enemy. In support of all of the above, I would like to show you the game of ex-player, and now commentator Nicklas Wagamama Hegstrom, with the exception of his assembly of Mask of Madness, which in a serious game is not suitable for Lion.

Necrophos

Necrophos Dota 2

Finally, it was decided to leave, perhaps, the most successful example of the hero, on which it is easy and pleasant to raise MMRNecrophos. I want to start with the fact that the hero in patch 7.06f suffered a change in the recharge of his Ultimate – Reaper’s Scythe from 90/80/70 to 100. To immediately relieve tension, it is worth saying that it did not in any way affect the utility of the hero. Excellent abilities and a large abundance of suitable artifacts when combined give Necrophos a win rate of 56.29% at the moment. This is a brilliant indicator and currently, it is only growing.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

Necrophos is a hero who shows himself from the best side in any of the roles. The hero perfectly stands face-to-face with the enemy character on the central line, is able to endure the beginning of the game on a complex and in the extreme case suitable for the farm on an easy line. That’s why it’s suitable for most Dota 2 players.

The hero fits perfectly into the meter of aggressive play and is capable of destroying opponents on a cooldown of the Ultimate. The disadvantage with the long recharge time of Reaper’s Scythe is corrected by the purchase of Aghanim Scepter. Incredibly strong ultimacy and ability are complemented plus a whole good tree of talents. +40 Damage at level 10 is an excellent improvement in order to quickly inflict the necessary amount of damage to use Reaper’s Scythe.

Depending on the course of the game, Necrophos can easily become a good tank or someone who can quickly get the enemy hero out of action. In the first case it will help Blade Mail and Hood of Defiance, and in the second one you can try to assemble through Dagon. Situations are different, but from what you choose – it may well depend on the outcome of the battle. And to convince us again will help Wagamama:


How to rise Elo in SoloQ | Jungle

Hello, my dear friends, the first thing you need to know, that this guide is created for the Junglers, here you can find something new.

Jungle | SoloQ

lol ranked

This is a guide, where I tried to concentrate all available information, that is needed to rise Elo, playing as a Jungler. In this guide, I will focus firstly on players of Bronze and Silver league, but I’m sure that many players of greater divisions can find something interesting here.

Introduction

We all love to play in League of Legends, this is interesting, fascinating and funny. But sometimes SoloQ ranked matches is a real pain in the ass. All that I will write down here, is focusing on the one main purpose – raising Elo. To reach this goal you need to play mostly on one role, and play a lot. You need to carry four more guys, that probably even does not know how to play in LoL, You need to take a responsibility for all that is happening in a game, correct others’ mistakes, play not only for yourself but for the whole team.

SoloQ | How to rise Elo playing as Jungler

jungle champions lol

Everyone set their own goals when they start LoL. For someone, this goal is just to gain pleasure from the game, for someone – to add salt in games. They play normal games, or ranked, solo or in a team, but they play mostly for fun. But we need to chase another goal – to rise Elo.

Basic advises

After you set a goal, you need to focus not only on the game but also on your behavior. Behavior is the most important thing in all kinds of activities. Never start a game, if you upset, have a bad mood, or some problems in real life. If you feel unusual, but still want to play, then play in any other game mode, like a normal draft, ARAM, dominion and else.

Never start games when you tired. Every man has their limits, after what you start to play significantly worse. Try to notice when you starting to think out of the game. If you see that you starting lose focus on LoL, then try to change activity. Just know when to stop. Many players just lose a freaking lot of games, only because they do not know when to stop. If you lose 1-3 games, then just take a break. Most of the players just fall in rage and start to spam games, dramatically increasing their losing streak. And in the worst scenario, you may start to troll in games.

Remember that if you decided to play League of Legends then you need to be chill. Take a break if you feel tired and you will reach new heights.

Why jungler

Jungler is the most independent role, where everything depends only on you. Playing as a Jungler you free to choose where to gank, when to gank, when to aim a Dragon. I prefer a tank-initiators type of junglers, so I choose where and when all team fights will start. And the right initiation of the team fight is the half of success.

To carry low elo games, you need to play on strong champions. Always follow the Meta, learn new champions. Your task – to find which champions are strong at this moment and to master them. Strong champion is not always popular, strong champion – is that kind of champion that can carry games almost by himself. Take Shivanna as an example. Many think that she is weak because she is not popular, but with the right items she is able to deal freaking lots of AoE damage and can fight almost 1 vs 3.

With the new patch, your favorites may meet some nerfs, so you need to quickly learn a new champion. This is an infinitive process, and you need to adapt to it.

Understand your team

Adapt to your team. Watch how they play, and how they act. In most cases, you can locate an idiot just in the lobby. Never focus on bad players in a game, do not even try to help them during the game. Idiot with a 4-0 stats can still lose a lane.

Focus on good players because you need allies in a match. Help him, gank his lane and you together you will be able to win a match. Even if he does strange things, it will be better to risk and assist him.

Many peoples, especially from Bronze, just loves to whine at the team. “I have a great CS and KDA, that means that I am a King and you all are Losers!” This is incorrect. You need to understand that if you want to break through low Elo you need to carry games, carry the whole team. If someone was killed by gank, then be sure that he buy and place a ward. If he did not bought it, then buy it by yourself, go to him, and place it.

Remember that you do not need /all chat. So go and disable it right now. Enemies, allies, all players of League of Legends use this chat to whine, flame and troll. If you here to start a conversation with some new peoples, then try something else. League of Legends is a competitive moba game, not some personal chat service. When someone starts to whine, flame then just add him to the ignore list.

Jungler champions | SoloQ

lol jungler

Personally, I divide all jungler by 2 groups – farmers and gankers.

Farmers – those junglers which full potential opens only in middle and late game. They do not that good at ganking, but they able to quickly farm jungle minions. Shyvanna is a great example, that can so effectively farm jungle that she can have the same level as the other solo laners. Other great farmers are Dr. Mundo, Amumu, Nasus, and others.

Gankers – junglers that really strong in early stages of the game. These champions are quite bad at farming, but they can deal great damage already by the 3rd level.

But this does not mean that playing on farmer you need to focus only on farm. You need to open the potential of a champion on all 100%.

Conclusion

This is the end of the First part of my guide, the second will be released probably in the next week. Summing up all that I wrote above, I want to say that it is easy to leave Elohell solo, all you need to do is to put some efforts in it, and you will quickly see how your rating is growing up. But if you feel that all this is pointless, then you can always use elo boosting services.

Dota 2: Sometimes it is better to suicide

Suicide Squad in Dota 2

Suicide Squad Dota 2

More and more often we see how professional players decided to suicide themself the run to the base. And they do it not without a reson, in current Meta sometimes it is better to commit suicide and almost immeadetly respawn at base. We try to figure out how this is possible and in when this move will be awfull.

For those who do not know: Support, jungler, hard liner that lose almost all hp and/or mana just need to go to the fountain to restore himself. Calculated that it take from 30 sec to 1 min. Of course you can use teleport, but then you must go back on your two (or four?.. depends on Hero).

And now Icefrog made an Alternative Way: Player kill himself and respawn at base with full hp and mana. In the early game that trick is just a miracle to the support, because on low levels respawn time is a few second.

Some statistic: At The Summit 6 in 74% (26 from 35) of games some one use that ability and just deny themselfes.

Let’s check it matematically. In our researches below we try to calculate all factors that affect on the death of hero and his movement speed. Our goal – check time that hero takes to go to the base and restore his hp. We found 2 ways to do it:

On your two.

First thing that you need to notice that we calculated only time when you run to the base, and do not forget that you will lose additional 10-15 second to refill your mana/hp bars.

Main thingMovement speed. We devided map on 3 main zones, where heroes appear after they lose some hp. Path from Red zone to the tavern takes the most of your time, from yellow a little less, and from blue – max fastly. We created some kind of table how much time heroes with different movespeed will appear at base:

Dota 2 map

  • MS: 280-290 ; From red zone – 58-70 sec; From yellow zone – 42-46 sec; From blue zone – 33-37 sec.
  • MS: 330-340 ; From red zone – 50-55 sec; From yellow zone – 38-42 sec; From blue zone – 30-34 sec.
  • MS: 370-380 ; From red zone – 42-45 sec; From yellow zone – 33-36 sec; From blue zone – 26-30 sec.

And with the help of this table you can calculate time what you need to reach the fountain.

Through Suicide.

Techies Dota 2

As we see path (wtihout some artifacts that increase movement speed) is quite long and it may take a time to reach home. So let’s calculate how long heroes will respawn after deny?

That time contains: Finding a path to deny, Killing your hero, respawn. Respawn is the easies to calculate, so let’s start with it:

Respawn time = 3.8*level of your hero + 5 sec.

So heroes with 1 level spent 9 second in tavern, 2 level – 13.6, 5 level – 24 sec. As we see it is much lesser then traveling time. But remember that you also need to find a way to commit suicide.

To kill Hero with 500 hp and 2 armor Big camps waste 8-10 sec in general, medium – 12-13 sec. Do not forget to sum time while you run to the camp.

Recap.

So we made researches and decided that it is more efficient to deny yourself on low levels, so do not hesitate to ask jungle creeps to throw you back to home!

Dota 2: How to boost mmr with Pudge in 6.88 patch

Pub Stomper Pudge

Valve Pudge

In this guide i will not tell you any thing special, i will just show you few paths and you will choose by yourself which build will be the most useful.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Pudge

Advantages:

  • Have 700 hp pool at 1st level.
  • 2 his spells break through spell immun like Black Kings Bar.
  • We will receive 50 point of hp for every death of enemy in 450 radius.
  • 34% magic resist with the help of Flesh Heap.
  • We can perform suicide with Rot, and take all exp and money with ourself.
  • In solo fights win 50% of all Dota 2 heroes.

Disadvantages:

  • Movements speed – 285 and this is slow. Very slow.
  • Have big problems with mana pool at all stages of game.
  • Have no escape.
  • Have a low base armor, need to buy something to compensate.

Pudge Abilities

Pudge

Meat Hook

The most powerful spell of Pudge. You can destroy formation of enemy just by hooking one of them under tower. Other will run to save him, or just leave him be.

At 25 level with Aghanim’s Scepter and Aether Lens hook deal 500 pure damage even through magic immun with 4 sec cooldown and 1500 range.

Rot

Slow for 30% at all stages.You can not both attack enemy and go after him due to your low movement speed, so best way will be running around your enemy but do not attack him until he almost die (other way creeps will attack and can block you) and then kill him with hook or melee attack. Remember that rot do not cancel teleport and ultimate.

Flesh Heap

Useless in early game so do not take this until 10 level. Stacks will accumulate even if you do not take this ability. So do not afraid to loose some stacks in early game, go ahead and kill somebody.

Dismember

3 second stun on enemy hero that also deal good damage and works through Black Kings Bar, what can be better? Also it will heal you, so do not afraid to use this ability on fat creeps like Golems, Catapults just to restore your health.

Strategy

Poison pudge

Gank is divided at 2: Heroes with escape like Phoenix, Anti-Mage; Heroes-food like Sniper, Crystal Maiden. In first case you need to use your ultimate while target stunned by hook, to perform insta ultimate, in other case – Hook -> 1-2 melee attacks -> Ultimate.

Play style described in this guide – aggressive, kill heroes everywhere and always.

Different roles of Pudge boil down to two things: get the 7 level and Arcane Boots, as soon as possible. Which way you’ll get it – you decide.

Do I need to gank level 6 without Arcane Boots? Basically – NO. I explain:

Pudge Mid: gank until 7 min and you will be noticed by opposite ward with high probability. Even if enemy did not have wards, we will have only 1 attempt to Meat Hook. Obviously, then enemies will know that we near and they will try to hide And now let’s get back to the Middle. Well, it will be good if your Tower will still be there. However, in any case, the opponent will be 1-3 levels above us. It is a failure.

Helping via Town Portal Scroll, only if the enemy dive under Towers, and we see that we can make a frag with a high probability. In general, at the beginning of the game we do not create moments and wait for the enemy mistake.

Pudge Support: gank mid Only if you are invisible rune. Usually enough to use Rot close to the opponent, everything is simple. You can gank in Smoke of Deceit, but the chances will be smaller, about 50 to 50. In the worst case, we lose a lot of experience, it would be better stack creeps. At best, the team won mid lane. Make the save-TP always, even if you can not Save anyone, in the worst case, get experience in the lane of our comrade, resting in a tavern, and this experience we really need.

Pudge Hard: look at experience farm if it possible. If the enemies zone us and we do not reach creeps, then every 2nd minute walk to the rune. Subject to Midder, so he fill his Bottle and did not lose the center line. In the pocket you must always have Town Portal Scroll to the case of dives from an opponent in another part of the map.

After receiving the 7-9 level and Arcane Boots comes the fun: buy Smoke of Deceit, fly on the line, where we can make a frag with an ally, it is desirable to kill or try to kill the enemy carry. Do these attacks on the CD: buy wards, fly, fight, and die again and again, and again.

Recap

So where is IMBA, you ask? Hmmm .. In your hands and mind of course!

Even all this knowledge will not help you win, if you making decisions too long. Pudge – hero of reaction, micro moments, and mini-map.

Mini Map allows you to collect a huge amount of information: movement on Wards, the destruction of our wards, installation of enemy wards, diving under Towers from enemies. All this should be monitored every 20-30 seconds.

It does not matter if we lose line, Pudge is weaker than many heroes in this part of the game, remember the task at the beginning of the game? Arcane Boots and 7 level. Then go gank with allies, we will be able to kill by themselves or the wounded heroes, or when we receive at least some benefit. And with that knowledge we can easily boost our MMR to around 5k.

Slark Gameplay

Boosting guide Slark

First thingh you need to do – learn how to escape from the most compilated situations. All Slarks boosting power is in HP regeneration, so use this ability wisely.

Start as many fights as you can, Farm lines as BurNIng in his best ages, and let the PTS be with you.

Starting Items: Tango x2, Quelling Blade, Ring of Protection.

You main goal at early stage – gain as much exp as possible. Even if enemies are harrasing you, sent you to the tavern you must bear all of this until you gain 7 level When you get your ultimate you can farm anywhere at map, and gank anyone tries to ruin your early game.

With your fist money buy Stout Shield and then Ring of Basilius. Next our step is to upgrade our shield to Poor Mans Shield, after that we buying Boots of Speed and Ring of Aquila. I will not say anything about early game, becouse in pub anything can happen, and in the most cases everything will go terribly wrong. That means that your main goal must be accumulating enogh exp for 7 level. Right after that point we will accumulate our critical mass to destroy entire enemy team, and throne aswell.

By 7 lvl we need :

  • Ring of Aquila
  • Quelling blade
  • Boots of Speed
  • Poor Man’s Shield
  • Infused Raindrop
  • Town Portal Scroll

Thank to the Raindrop and aquila we can farm 2 jungle camps without any lost of mana or hp and push line when camps are respawning.

With our first money we must upgrade our boots to Power Treads, and next step is to decide what will be better in our case : Shadow Blade or Echo Sable. If you play at rating that below 4000 mmr, then you can bravely choose Shadow Blade, in other case – Echo Sabre, because the highter the rating, the biggest are chances to meet 5ManDoto. For more stable game for boosting your MMR in that case you must buy Echo Sabre. With this Artifact we can faster our farm to 4 camps per minute, and increase our push potenrtal and hp pool (plus quite good mana regen).

Right after Sabre we rush for Shadow Blade and then upgrade it to Silver Edge.

At 11-14 level we must have :

  • Power Treads
  • Ring of Aquila
  • Echo Sabre
  • Shadow Blade OR Silver Edge

With this setup we will have about 1500 hp, 700 mana, 130 damage, 8 armor and 0.8 attacks per second. Our full burts from invis will deal about 450 phisical damage (if enemy has 10 armor) and 345 magical in 1.5 second. After all of this we buy Eye of Skadi, Linken’s Sphere, Abyssal Blade and win the Dota 2.

What makes you a real Slark pro

  • Pact has a 1.5 delay, and after that for 1 second all negative effect will be dispelet with 10 ticks
  • Slark has a great vision, and his range of view – 1800, and at night you can deal namy bad things with enemy, because you have a lrger distance of view then them.
  • At team fight you must soak as much damage as you can, to do so you must leave the battle often, regen your HP and then dive in again. Repeat until victory.
  • You must use Pounce very accurate. In the professional hand Pounce can make miracles.
  • For the entire game tell you team where enemies ward are, due to your ultimate passive effect you can predict where they are pretty accurate.
  • Use your Ultimate only as an emergency button in critical situation.

Dota 2 Boost advices – Visual Control of Map

Visual Map Control in Dota 2

Unlike the newcomers, hardcore Dota players can play blindfolded and know where on the map probably is one or another enemy hero. I think in many head flashed the thought “they are in Rosh pit” in just a few seconds to notice the attention. But the point is in the word “probably” and that a pair of seconds. It is dangerous to go in the enemy forest, or try to push the tower, or take away Aegis of the Immortal from that stoneheaded without vision. And I’m not just talking about Wards. You should use all available metods: an illusion or controlled creatures, spells of some characters, friends who play on a support; In other words, the visual map control – the key to victory.

Dota 2 Ward

Dota 2 Best places for Observer Ward

I will note here a couple of tricks. You can recieve view in the Roshans den with usual Observer Ward, and even ward at the entrance can be fooled with the invisibility spell or Smoke of Deceit. Versatile, but expensive means – the courier. In the very overextended games loss of courier does not have a major impact on the economy, but an exact knowledge of the moment of the resurrection of Roshan can decide the outcome of the match. Also, that can be done by such popular characters as Invoker with using Sun Strike or Forge Spirit, Beastmaster with his hawk, Vengeful Spirit, Templar Assassin and many others. However, all these methods are not as effective as the ability Eyes In The Forest from Treant Protector, which gives a constant overview of the den, and an excellent, and most importantly, a sudden opportunity for initiation. To do this you must purchase Aghanim’s Scepter and enchant one of the trees, highlighted in the picture below.

Back to main viewing tool – Observer Ward. Let me remind you that the range of viewing Observer Ward is 1600 units. According to statistics, even at a low ranking wards very quickly disappear from the shop, but where they usually placed? The most popular places are the points on the river near the runes approaches to forests, Roshan Pit. This is understandable, and rightly so. But we must always keep in mind these banal position and do not wait for 20-30 seconds until the next runes. Places where most likely located Vision from opponents should get round, especially when you juking.

In some situations, you should pay attention to the following wards.

Dota 2

It may seem that they will not bring significant benefits and generally will serve as the cause of severe criticism and reports. In a normal game it will be so, but even in the pub practiced tactic of split-pushing. Against this strategy, these wards will be extremely useful. From personal experience, I can say that they also help to detect those elusive characters like Tinker, Nature’s Prophet, Ember Spirit and similar.

Dota 2: Even More Jukes

In our last article we talked about various types of juking, and we look at some interesting examples. In this article we will talk about various items, micro moments, mechanics, and Dota 2 mechanincs, knowing of which will allow you to perform an ideal juke. Sometimes to run away from a tail you need only a little piece of luck, but you can avoid that unpleasant situations, simply understanding what may cause these or other actions. This time, our target is to understanding the logic of jukes, understanding of the causes and reasons.

Dota 2

Usually for the successful juking you need some sort of advantage over the opponent. For example, a large movement speed or distance viewing. Of course, rarely a support can afford to buy Boots of Travel or Manta Style, but developers still think of the balance. Therefore, there are such wonderful artifacts as Glimmer Cape or Lotus Orb, which even the poorest support can afford.

Today we will focus on a Movement Speed.

Movement speed

Why is the first thing every player tries to buy is a Boots of Speed? The question seems absurd, but many rarely think much about why they buy this or that object, and how the artifact will show better in a given situation. This problem that is even professional players suffer. Recall the scandalous tandem of player EternaLEnVy and Eye of Skadi.

Increased movement speed, it is valued at all phases of the game. For example, competent Carry probably will get Phase Boots, and after, and Yasha, instead of Power Treads and Sange. It is clear that there is no universal itembuild for all characters here, but even a few patches ago Sven began his victorious farm with Yasha, that at a accelerated the farm of gold.

For supports there is ideal starting item 0 Wind Lance, that can be easily transformed into Eul’s Scepter of Divinity, or in Drumm of Endurance. Those both artifacts are ideal items for any support hero.

Item priority

Trader dota 2

Base movement speed ranges from 270 characters (Techies) and up to 335 (Enchantress, Keeper of the Light, Luna), and yes, Crystal Maiden is not the slowest character in Dota 2. This information should be used and, for example, if you play as Dark Seer in a hard line, and against you is a couple of slow and clumsy characters, make a double kill, conquer the line and destroy morale of the opponents. The difference in speed even at 20-30 units determines the success or complete failure of the chase. But what if we are playing on the ill-fated Crystal Maiden? Tranquil Boots – a good choice, it provides 85 additional units of the speed of movement, and in combination with the aforementioned Wind Lace all 105.

Separately we will examine this artifact – Phase Boots. The ability to pass through the units, which have these shoes, is not unique. But what gives to us this effect and how to use it for juking?

Some tricks

Anti-mage dota 2

There is a standard trap in the forest, which has many variations. The simplest situation can happen even on the stage of Lining. Running from the opponent’s hero, with luck, you can hold it in your crowd creeps. To do this we need to come in hide spot in the forest. The enemy will follow us and our creeps for him. At the time of the crowds, using Phase Boots, we pass through the opponent, our creeps and find ourselves outside our deadly trap.

Dota 2: Jukes

IceFrog do his best and make an ideal game from such simple fan-made map. Each new match played differently. Secret lies in the variety of hero combinations and items, proper use of map and understanding of the games mechanics. We will talk talk about this in that article, but in the contest of Juking.

Juking

Juking – an integral part of the game, dodge skill from blows and spells, the correct use of regional advantages, and unexpected, as they may seem, crazy moves. Some of things are difficult and beginners doubtfully can use them, but other basic, easy to learn and apply in practice. Good players are distinguished from normal in the possession of such techniques. In the conventional sense Junking – means to dodge enemy attacks, run through forest, avoiding spells, etc. However, such basic skills can be used not only in the escape, but also on the stage of lining or in team fights.

Easy line

With a right movements support heroes not only leaves Carrt with creeps tete-a-tete, but also can completely steal all exp and money from the enemy hardliners. Of course some play with support only for fun, or just do not know how to play them properly. They push lines, attack creeps and etc. But a good support, that know a “secret” trails in jungle can easily harras the enemy without being notice by creeps.

While we use standart trail in jungle, we can not surprise our opponent. But if we use that “secret” trails, then we can flank our enemies, or just inflict a surprise attack that will chill him a little bit. Do not forget that your Main Objective – Let you main carry a safe lining, and let him freefarm as long as possible. Ganking enemies is not our job.

Dota 2 easy line jukes

These positions are the most comfortable for the supports. It give a great review of the map, variability of movements, and the ability to pool a large camp of neutral creeps. Remember that wards are your job, always keep enemies in sight.Dota 2 easy line

With successful juking you will hit your enemies with hit or two and then hide in the fog of war or trees. Feel free to use your attacking abilities or simply harras him. If you do all properly then the enemy has only 2 options: Retreat in jungle, or stay and risk with his own life.

Pay attention to the time – every 22 and 52 sec creeps walk past by tier-1 tower. Pass these creeps and keep to zone enemy. If you can drive him under a tower then you have done all right.

Hard Line

What can you do at a hard line if you meet a really good team, in which support know their role? Answer is simple, try to get as much exp as you can, and wait for a help. But there is a few tips. If you play as a Dire then you can take this (on picture below) position and just sit there and collect exp. Remember that you will receive exp only if creeps are killed in 1300 range.

Dota 2 free exp

Of course there is a possibility that support can check this spot, but even in that case you have a way to retreat. While you hero receive exp you can drink a tea, or just look at the map more closely. At 3-4 min you will have a 5 lvl. You will have an advantage in exp if opponent supports shared exp with theirs carry.

Middle line

Juking on middle line requires some certain skill. There is no trees, and you can not wait for help from anywhere. How to juke then? First of all juking – intellectual competition between players in which you need to use everything that you can.

While playing some heroes ( Shadow fiend, Magnus, Kunkka and etc) that have animation of skills you can use that skill and then immediately cancel it by pressing S button. If you done this properly then your hero will start an animation of attack, but mana will not be consumed. The enemy, seeing or hearing the attack may depart or cancel their attack. Such simple trick can beat the opponent in the number of finished off creeps, and also you can bait them for some spells.

Dota 2 mid jukes

Also on the middle line you should take into account the factor of relief. At night, when the viewing distance decreases, the characters do not see what is happening on the hill. So it is possible to catch the enemy hero, for example, with the ultimate from Shadow Fiend.

There is still a popular feature of using illusion runes. Bite on the illusion in the early game is quite difficult to read, as the heroes damage is small, but it’s still a risk. Employing this rune, stop and run with one of your copies, and most likely, the enemy will follow it.
