With the "Dueling Fates" update drastically changing the game itself, I've decided to scrap all my previous hero guides and remake them from scratch! Stay tuned for those and the toxicity guide I mentioned in my previous blog. Anyways, since the update is very fresh, I might not be able to provide the most optimal of strategies so please forgive me for any mistakes I might make in the future.

So, what do you guys think of the update? Personally, I think it's about time Dota 2 got a major update since 7.00 was released several months ago and the game was starting to become stale. Although, I must admit that the Dota 2 development team will need to do a lot of bug-fixing and balance changes since they've added several new mechanics and quirky interactions. Heck, people are already complaining about gamebreaking bugs/interactions such as the following:
  • Morphling's ulti causing the game to crash if stolen by Rubick
  • Bane being able to Enfeeble himself for extra damage
  • Dark Willow being extremely OP in most case scenarios
  • Io being an extremely deadly right-clicker if tethered to a hero with very high attack speed.
  • Io being a death machine if tethered to Puck with the Lvl.25 Dream Coil. Io literally attacks everyone affected by the Dream Coil. Imagine that with Maelstrom procs!
