One of the most iconic personality from Starcraft, Day[9] is turning his eyes to Dota2 and starting this January he plans a four months long series of learning streams with Purge in the coach seat.

“Day[9] learns Dota 2 with Purge” will be a weekly five to six hour live stream every Wednesday, starting on January 18. “Our goal is not to focus on specific heroes and builds (since a patch could change them at any moment). Instead, we hope to focus on deeper core concepts that can be useful in any version of Dota. We’ve been planning this show for a few weeks now, so the timing of Dota 7.00 couldn’t have been better” explained Day9 on his Reddit announcement.

The real life brother of the Starcraft 1 and 2 commentator, Nicolas "Tasteless" Plott, Day[9] is one of the pioneers and certainly one of the most important and beloved content creators for Starcraft 2. A professional player himself during the Starcraft 1 era, Day[9] has nearly half a million subscribers on his YouTube channel and is the creator of endless number of guides and tutorials. Since Hearthstone was launched, Day[9] continued to be a prolific content creator for Blizzard’s community.

A few months back, sometime before The International 6, Day[9] started to tweet a few things about him playing Dota2 and was warmly welcomed into the community by most of the game personalities. He is now sitting at around 250 hours played and his solo MMR is 2.2k. As most of us did at some point in our life, Day[9] went consuming Purge’s guides and with the 7.00 patch, which has a steep learning curve even for the more experienced players. He decided to partner up with one of the most analytical mind in Dota 2, in order to discover and learn the paths of the “New Journey”.

As you might imagine, I quickly started to devour Purge’s videos and began bombarding him with various questions. Since I was clearly hungry to learn more we figured, why not make a video series about it? - extract from Day[9] ‘s Reddit post

“Day[9] learns Dota 2 with Purge” streaming lessons are planned over the course of four months, which means we should expect 16  “episodes” that will be available to watch on both parties personal Twitch and YouTube channels, live and on demand.
