The International 5: 2P brings you exclusive content /w Esportgaming

Good day to all of you. Today, we want to make a short announcement but before we begin, we’d like to take a moment to thank all of you for supporting us so far through thick and thin. We cannot express our gratitude for the love you’ve shown us and that is the exact reason why we will continue to work hard and strive to bring you awesome content. Thank you for all the love and support!

Moving on to the main topic of this discussion, we’d like to inform you that 2P Dota 2 will be present at the grandest stage in all of Dota 2; The International 5. Representing us at the mega event will be none other than Steven ‘Toffees’ Pierce of Coffee w/ Toffees fame and his partner in crime April ‘ProveAttitude’ Iverson.

While Toffees will be our face in front of the camera, April will be tasked with uploading video content to our 2P YouTube channel. So do expect a lot of interviews with players, cosplayers, personalities, team managers, casters, fans, etc. Besides the video interviews we’ll also be bringing you tons of epic moments captured in video such as crowd reaction, team moments, atmosphere at Key Arena – to name a few.

Lastly, we’d also like to thank Esportgaming for providing us with some much needed support at The International 5. We look forward to bringing you exciting content live from Key Arena, Seattle. In the meantime, do follow our TI5 hub in order to keep up to date with some awesome content.

Please let us know who would you like us to interview at The International 5. Also, post anything else that you expect from us at TI5 in terms of coverage. Compendium winners will be announced on 28th July, 2015.

 

Dota 2 6.84b patch out, nerfs heroes and items

Dota 2‘s 6.84b patch has been released, bringing a swathe of nerfs to the stuff that’s proven popular and powerful since 6.84 launched.

Unsurprisingly, Glimmer Cape and Silver Edge have both taken a bit of a bash. Silver Edge now costs more, with the recipe bumped from 350 gold to 600 gold, while Glimmer Cape’s magic resistance has been dropped from 66% to 55%. By the same token, both Glimmer Cape and Shadow Amulet have lost 10 attack speed.

Items aside: Rosh has a bigger armour upgrade, and Visage, Undying, Centaur Warrunner, Gyrocopter, Queen of Pain, Ursa, and Beastmaster (all of whom, barring Ursa, have been staples in recent pro matches) have all taken a few knocks to the face from Valve’s nerf bat, with some being smacked harder than others.

You can see the full list of patch notes below. We’ll see if this affects the pro meta when matches resume next week, I suppose!

Roshan armor upgrade increased from 1 per 8 minutes to 1.4 per 8 minutes
Familiars hit requirement reduced from 4 to 3
Enrage damage multiplier reduced from 2/2.5/3 to 1.5/2/2.5
Glimmer Cape Magic Resistance reduced 66% to 55%
Glimmer Cape and Shadow Amulet Attack Speed reduced from 30 to 20
Silver Edge recipe cost increased from 350 to 600
Flesh Golem minimum damage amplification reduced from 5/10/15% to 1% (same for scepter)
Flesh Golem minimum slow reduced from 5% to 1%
Soul Rip manacost increased from 50/75/100/125 to 100/110/120/130
Zombies no longer require two hits to kill from Towers
Stampede Scepter damage reduction from 70% to 60%
Gyrocopter base Intelligence reduced from 23 to 19
Queen of Pain base movement speed reduced from 300 to 295
Hawk movement speed from 250/300/350/400 to 250/275/300/325
