Fourth Spirit - A Dota 2 Podcast

On this week's Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi are completing their new-hero trist with Grimstroke by playing him and trying to convince Ursi he needs to become a Grimstroke spammer (spoiler: he will be)! We're also casually covering our strategy now that we're trying to play and climb more seriously, a lot of lane partner pair-ups with Grimstroke, how to fit Earthshaker into a team comp, why pubs are bad at Spectre even though she's great, adapting pro or high-level strategies into your pub play, countering a defensive duo safelane, Mario's advantures in dimensional portals, and plenty more!

On this week's Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi break into the first day of the group stage matches of TI, super-late-game decision making after Ursi had a 83 minute game this week, and plenty more! For our main segment we're covering the trends from day 1 of the Group Stage which can be summarized as "we're really smart and all of pro dota listens to this show please hire us"! For heroes we're covering a stat-focused PA build Proud and Ursi are both in love with and Ursi is playing offlane Centaur! At the end we cover our TI content & meet-up plans as well as Proud's tour guide to Vancouver!

On this week's Teach Me Tuesday Bee and Ursi work on a beginner's guide to mid as Bee's started to pick up the position and embrace her heel turn into a mid player (maybe, kind of)! We're specifically talking a lot about Shadow Fiend, the different archetypal mid roles, and when you should actually gank side lanes (regardless of your teammates' whining)! For questions we're burning through quite a few and covering everything from mid broodmother to Axe's tempo to farm efficiency, force staff efficiency, and plenty more!

On this week's Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi fly too close to the sun by attempting to play core Crystal Maiden by abusing her +250 attack speed talent and it goes as expected. It's a great example, if a little strange, of how the proper process of theorycrafting a new build should go when it comes to analyzing a hero's strengths and weaknesses and building around to amplify strengths while mitigating potential weaknesses. For our weak in Dota we have Ursi realizing he's a terrible Invoker player and Proud explains exactly how one figures out how to approach the game strategically once they've taken all the outer towers and are forced to figure out how to approach high ground (hint: its about buying a gem!). All this and more on this week's show!

No description either. Money's a bit tight feel free to give us some. Or just me personally, it's fine either way.

On this week's Theorycraft Thursday Proud and Ursi try Daedalus Tiny and are never the same afterwards. Ursi's playing his newfound love Dark Willow and having a grand old time with all her combos and whatnot. For our segment we're focusing on Creep Cutting and how this relatively simple tactic can win you plenty of pubs so long as you're aware of it, set yourself up for it properly, and execute it well! All this and more on this week's show!
