So today we played two games vs MYM, and we tried to play without one of our core players misery. How did this affekt us?
1 game - I think I selfowned us a bit during picks, personally I didn't want to pick the lion, but the team was really up for it. We got some weak lanes and we put them wrong. basicially we kinda got owned in all lanes, only dusa and panda got farm in the early game stage and we didn't really have heros to go on them. They picked smart, picking sk first pick while the rest of the core inciators was banned. Mym farmed well, and got their blink daggers fast, and took a lot of our towers down. I was left a little in the dark as maiden, couldn't do much. Our movement was sloppy, I think it was cause the picks didn't fit us too well, and we kinda made a lot of mistakes during the game. Some on the team was too offensiv while others as I see it played passiv - wich in this case was smartest. actually the situation in this game is quite the same as we saw in the OK vs MYM game 1, where MyM putting a lot of pressure on us, as they did vs OK. Defence is in almost every case the easiest to play and its shows in this game, MyM inciating on maiden (me) behind tower on top and loses the fight on it. Loda was outstanding this game, getting the maximum out of dusa, showing the true str of the hero. Playing without misery makes it easier to play passiv, but we lack a lot early game without him. As I said to the team before the game: "first game is without misery, we have to move, it will be hard without him". Guess we didn't succed that well :). Even though we played horrible in periods of the game, the people on this team is exp enouth to choose the right decisions in the end. We fought our team fights well, and we punished them the right times in the game. I would still go as far as saying this was DDT's worst game so far as DDT. Ofcourse MYM is a strong opponent, but I take most of the blame, cause our picks wasn't that well excecuted. If we had put maiden panda top, dusa mid, lion potm down I think we could have done better as misery mentioned after the game. Anyway we made to many mistakes, and that made the game too exciting. Btw pusher gave me no chance downlane to herras back, with that annoying pugna, mym played very well the early phase of the game. In the end I'm once again happy to be able to play with people like loda, who can turn a game we messed up around all alone and make us all look good. :D
2 game - This time our picks was really good, again team and I didn't totally agree with me, they wanted to ban sven, while I was scared of the pushing power in the hero pugna. Im happy I got to sit on the blue or pink collor, meaning I can use that power to make the final decision. So with the ban on sk, sven was a strong fp, Misery dropped during picks but yelled on vent "maybe its time to do our kotl storm lane". And boy I couldn't agree more, so storm and potm was picked, we had a nice setup for strong lanes. Rex was picked lp for us due to low time, but I regretted immediatly after (even though rex would be strong as shit too), ballanar was the better pick, and nice sportsman ship from MYM's side allowing us to change it. The game talk for it self, we played very well, only did few mistakes, but not game deciding. A fast decision to swap our raping downlane with top lane, made us own the annoying silencer aswell. Anyway DDT was back in shape 2 game, ofcourse you could say MYM was outpicked too, and that might not be a lie, but we punished them like they punished us 1 game, but there was no chance for them to get back in the game, so they decided to ff. A fair call. GG was two good games, too bad first game from our side, sorry for that.
I got a question for my readers. I been thinking a lot about heros the past time, and one hero I would like discuse with you. Is kunka worth picking as a high tire hero? (picking it fast). I won't answer my opinion right away, will save that for my next post. But think about the hero, and give me some arguments to why it should be picked fast or not (is it overrated or not).
Again sorry for my bad english hope you understand.
