Fourth Spirit - A Dota 2 Podcast
On this continuation of our review of the huge 7.23 patch notes Proud and Ursi get deeper into the patch after having played a whole lot of games! We're covering the new heroes, new map, new items, new RNG components, specific heroes (notably the very-high-winrate-increase heroes like AM, CM, Venge, LD, etc.), Proud's take on the new (very strong!) Lone Druid, Kunkka's aghs, how supporting has changed already, item equity amongst teammates, and plenty, plenty more!
