With three months to go for TI10, the dropping of Dota 2 patch 7.30 is imminent. However, what the qualifiers have shown is the current patch is quite versatile as there were more than a few new heroes making an appearance, different ones for different regions. The cherry on top of the cake was OG turning to position 5 Naga Siren and mid Pangolier to earn them a chance to defend their Aegis; but that is what OG are well known for – breaking the meta.
The star of the show was probably Hoodwink, who was the second most picked hero (118 games) with a win rate of 53.39%. The latest hero to be introduced to Captains Mode, Hoodwink didn’t see too much use in the DPC Leagues, but with a few small buffs, ramped up from the AniMajor, to ESL One Summer, to finally the TI10 qualifiers.
The three month hiatus after TI qualifiers is something unprecedented. Typically, the air is charged with anticipation for The International after the qualifiers end, but this year, it is bound to fizzle out a bit. Hopefully once the patch arrives, with it will come the announcements of third party tournaments from now to The International. One can only hope!
