Hi everyone!
I'm Pocciox, a 4,4K MMR Player.
I know MMR means nothing but I always had, in the last patches, a hero wich I spammed in rankeds in order to get most wins I could. Example:
Sniper 6.83,
Can't remember who i picked in 6.84
Doom 6.85
And now, I feel like I need a hero that has a lot of impact in all the stages of the game, but I can't think of one. Anyone help me?

Lone Druid

outworld devourer

If you ask me those are the 4 iconic heroes of the patch.

Seriously pick Pudka win Dotka. He even scales well into late game with 4 second cd hook now, he scales far better than other supports honestly. OSFrog.

Hey Pocciox!

This is actually a discussion I've been having with a friend. Basically, Dota is getting more team oriented, I find its getting harder and harder to solo carry your team when your allies suck, especially since the average skill levels of players increases (the example of this I saw was the fact that MoM is no longer a top item buy on Abaddon).

However, you can just play the numbers game and go for the highest winrate picks in your bracket.

Omni, Abaddon, Spectre, Necro, Ursa, Zeus, Invoker, WK, Slardar, Lycan, Lich, Medusa, Chen, Warlock.

Those will probably do fine for spam picking. I guess it depends on how late you pick. I tend to pick first a support or versatile pick and dictate the type of picks my allies make, since im more strategic and lower in mechanical skill, but if you're the opposite, you can do some late pick core.

If your teammates deny you mid or safelane(or you play other positions), you can just instapick Abaddon and go offlane. Solo offlane, carry in double offlane or support in double offlane, it doesn't matter. The hero is super good early, and if enemy's carry supports are not good enough, he's done for(unless it's like Gyro or similar ****).

Best to lane him in a duo offlane. You don't even need to block a pull camp since you can contest the pull, just put is so you can track the movement of enemy supports and when they are gone, you kill their carry. Ask for Ogre/Sky/Venge/Lich/Undying etc and you autowin your lane.

I was spamming skywrath,silencer,and terrorblade a few weeks ago but haven't played doters in about 2 weeks but I would think they would still be very successful for some ez katka

Try Death Prophet.

Seriously, that stuff is ridiculous.

How do u even run death prophet this patch cause she feels a lot like razor nowadays but even more situational and a Lot slower cause she doesn't have witchcraft anymore since she isn't a race car but the new spell she has is amazing I just need to know whether to max q or her new e and also what items to buy on her now

I agree with them, I saw recently a lot of Death Prophets in competitives and she is very strong, maybe because the game now revolves so much around teamfighting and taking objectives (and apparently a Rosh with her ulti on is almost unnaproachable).

Abaddon is also really good because of the versatility Dimony told you about, he works in whatever role it's left.

Death Prophet if played well can win most mid lane matchups nowadays. It is not like she wrecks most laners (apart of melees who will be siphoned and torn apart) but you can't bully her out completely. She can always just fall back to spamming Crypt Swarm. She can easily win teamfights with her ultimate and can turn pick offs and won teamfights into destroyed towers. She crushes tanks and silences mobile heroes so they can't escape.
The only two problems with her are that her team needs to listen if her ult is on cd or not. And belive it or not sometimes 4k is just as bad as 2k with coordination and fight without your ultimate up. So you have to make it clear whether you can fight or not but apart from this weakness Dp is pretty solid right now.
