Top 10 Aghanim’s Scepters for Position 5 SupportsBy KawaiiSocks on

Analyzing Aghanim’s Scepters on position five supports is really hard: it is rare for the most sacrificial position to have the money for a relatively costly item.

Next in our series for Top 10 Aghanim’s Scepters is the position 4. This position is known for their play making abilities on the map. Not all Aghanim’s Scepters are upgraded equally though, so here is our top 10 list of the best upgrades for this position.

Evolution of a Hero's Role — VisageBy KawaiiSocks on

Visage is one of the oldest heroes in Dota and one of the most untouched in his overall design: he remained largely unchanged since 2009. Despite that, his role in the game and his position went through a very tumultuous period and he is now primarily played as a core. So what changed, exactly?

Evolution of a Hero’s Role - RikiBy Yongelee.trackdota.com on

If Dota was a person, they would be 18 years old today. The first map of Dota was released on an unknown date in 2002. Over the long 18 years, a lot has changed, and today, Dota 2 is one of the premiere esports titles backed by the supreme gaming organization Valve, and led by the fabled Icefrog.

Top 10 Utility Aghanim’s Scepters for CoresBy Yongelee.trackdota.com on

Everything Can Work — Earth Spirit CoreBy KawaiiSocks on

There is a common misconception in the community that Earth Spirit is an absurdly complicated hero. Over the years, a certain aura has developed around the character, with many players outright ignoring Earth Spirit, because they think he is too hard to execute. Today we would like to shatter this myth, as well as propose a potential new role for the hero.

Everything Can Work - Position 3 Chen EditionBy Yongelee.trackdota.com on

Another article, another pub game ruined. This time, your core is the one who will ruin your game. Next up in this series are traditional support heroes who could make an impact by playing as cores.

Everything Can Work — Ember Spirit SupportBy KawaiiSocks on

We are going to finish the “core turned support” part of our Everything Can Work series with Ember Spirit — possibly the most controversial hero to appear on this list and certainly the most nuanced. To fully utilize the hero’s strengths without any farm priority the gameplay should be close to perfect and even then, we are not entirely sure it is worth it.

Everything Can Work - Position 4 Clinkz EditionBy Yongelee.trackdota.com on

Another edition of “Everything Can Work.” This time, position 4 Clinkz. He doesn’t have a stun, he doesn’t have a slow, he can’t heal, he can’t tank, but invisibility is invincibility, therefore he is a strong hero. Somehow support Clinkz became a thing, and in this article, we’ll expand on this idea.

Everything Can Work — Support Death ProphetBy KawaiiSocks on

We are continuing our series with yet another potential curveball you can throw during the drafting stage. Today we are going to discuss a position five Death Prophet—perhaps one of the most surprising and underrated support heroes of the current patch.
