Fourth Spirit - A Dota 2 Podcast
In this week's episode of Theory Craft Thursday Proud and Ursi are explaining how the meta has shaped up to be in this first chunk of 7.20, with all the various item, stat, and hero changes! We're covering why games feel hectic and fast, what items are shining, what hero archetypes are popular, and plenty more! For our hero combo Proud is playing a mid lane Outworld Devourer with the brand new Kayasha, Tranquil Boots, and a Shadow Blade while Ursi attempts to learn a 3 Doom, for better or worse!

On this week's Theory Craft Thursday we are basking in the glory of 7.20's changes and our ability to once again enjoy theorycrafting dota two concepts! We're going over all our big take-a-ways from our first couple days playing the patch including: what seems busted strong, what met expectations, whatt exceeded expectations, what needs fixing, what we thought would be strong but actually wasn't, how wraith bands got stupid strong, and plenty more! For the hero combo we tested our 3 Tidehunter with a 4 Bounty Hunter to play around with some of the newly changed heroes! Thanks for listening!
