Defense of the Patience – A Dota 2 Podcast

Cyphus and Roland tackle this week’s round of Counterattack with the OP Necrophos and the kinda-P’d Bristleback…or something.  Find out what led to those heroes being counterpicks, how the game went, and how the duo interpret the stats surrounding those two heroes.  Are they just OP, or were they legitimate counters?  They also read a listener email concerning Spectre ability builds and whether the max dagger build is truly the way to go based on stats?  All this and more in the latest episode of the Dota 2 podcast!

Counterattack: Spectre/Treant

Defense of the Patience – A Dota 2 Podcast

Cyphus and Roland tackle another round of Counterattack, the show where we force ourselves to play the best hero for every episode as determined by pure statistical counterpicking.  This week, we counterattack the enemy team with Spectre and Treant Protector versus an Axe, Mirana, Riki, Bloodseeker and Faceless Void.  Find out how they did, what they think the strengths and weaknesses were of their heroes versus the enemy team’s lineup, and more!  All this on the latest episode of the Dota 2 podcast.

DotP Counterattack: Luna/Warlock

Defense of the Patience – A Dota 2 Podcast

Cyphus and Roland delve into the newest addition to the DotP network: Counterattack.  They explain the premise of the show as a study in counterpicking and attempting to elucidate (DotP’s new favorite word) the reasons for the strength of counterpicking strictly by the statistics and whether those relationships are occurring due to legitimate counters or are simply due to an individual hero’s current power in the meta.  Then they discuss their first attempt at counterpicking.  They discuss why they picked Luna/Warlock into a draft of Dazzle, Mirana, Earthshaker, Phantom Assassin and Tinker, the strengths and weaknesses they noticed, and whether Tinker or Luna truly has the upper hand and why.  All this and more on the latest edition of the Dota 2 counterpicking podcast: Counterattack!  Match info: https://www.dotabuff.com/matches/3017107813 Match replay available on Youtube sometime Friday afternoon!
