Damn, LGD tried to gameplan against Arc Warden, got fucking rolled. If one of the top 2 teams in the world can't outdraft it, I think it will get autobanned for the rest of the tournament.

Not sure if Secret wins game 2, but they're shitting all over LGD right now. Really, LGD is taking the worst engagements I've seen in a pro game.

Edit: Damn, that was quite a performance. Holy shit...

Well LGD is just throwing this one. Like, 5 or so bad decisions all in 30 seconds.

Fuck my couch LGD threw that second game hard. Crit did play out of his mind, but LGD was sloppy the whole series.

EG looks pretty impotent today.

Secret and VP are on a different level than these other teams right now.

Wasn't Arc like not meta until this tournament? TB/PL/Morph sure but I thought Arc Warden was kinda recent. It's super strong but it's not like it's been constantly around to get bored of already imo. Should get nerfed though probably, just too good atm.

I dunno. Topson pretty much won TI in August with Arc Warden play. We are basically playing the same game with only a handful of heroes getting nerfed since then.

Was only played 3times in the whole main stage, with only 10bans too and Topson won with it in WB finals, not even grand finals. Interestingly enough, that's more than TB and Morphling too. TI had a way different meta than the current one, at least in terms of carries. There was a patch that nerfed a bunch of the common ones inbetween(Spectre especially), they just switched and have been the same for a while but not since august.

yeah the meta shift was probably because of the couple nerfs and the rise of how popular centaur and axe support became lol

I find this whole 2-1-2 meta super boring now, it was awesome at first but its super zzzz now, make the jungle great again!

Slark got A LOT of buffs it seems, just from general mechanics change. Seems he can dispel Hex again and pounce is now a TP interupt, which means there's no escaping him if he ganks you at low hp/you're a support. Also got some minor buffs directly but those are pretty big.

Some of the changes seem super retarded but we'll see I guess. AM reflect on a 3secs cd 1.4secs duration, SD straight up removing 40% health from people for 10secs, Huskar having an aoe knockback+disarm+damage on a 12secs cd, Dazzle having 50% cooldown reduction, Brew drunken haze being way way stronger, Razor having a 500aoe 120damage free nuke every THREE seconds, definitely some wild shit in there. Some of the changes look a lot worse too. Like OD seems even worse somehow?

OD's autos will be AOE though, thats pretty nutty. I assume each hero you hit will also stack more INT so i can see it being a lot better on paper.

These changes are nutty, i think Lich is going to be extremely broken and probably first banned in every game from those armor changes lmao
