  • Mikasa: "Alliance's teamwork in 2013 helped me understand Dota 2 better"

    Earlier this year, the Chinese powerhouse of Newbee celebrated their victory at The International on the big stage of Key Arena in Seattle following something of an anticlimactic 3-1 victory over Vici Gaming in the grand finals. While Zhang “xiao8” Ning and his teammates were praised for triumphing at the biggest event ever hosted in the history of eSports, there are many people wh... Read More »

  • Elo, Predictive Power and Upsets

    Earlier this week someone asked me how good 2P’s Elo scores for ranking teams are at predicting winners. Whilst not immediately able to present evidence to support their validity or accuracy, I’ve taken some time to analyse them. Elo ratings are nice in that, unlike some rating systems that operate on independent objectives like the ATP Tennis ranking algorithm or the IRB Rugby ratin... Read More »

  • 6.82: What's working best so far?

    scant 0

    I've been nervous to do much analysis of the new patch so early into it, believing strongly that understanding the impact big Dota patches will have on metagaming is usually more about playing it out than thinking it through. However, I do think at this point there is enough data to at least spark some interesting discussions. Understand, there isn't a lot of data by anyone's standards... Read More »

  • Perks of Being at <3K MMR
