This Dota 2 Character Is Prevailing In The ESL One Kuala Lumpur Tournament
A few days after the commencement of the Group Stage at ESL One Kuala Lumpur, the professional Dota 2 scene has witnessed a shift in the prevailing game meta, with a particular hero rising to prominence in the drafting phase.
Slardar, the formidable aquatic warrior wielding a massive trident, has emerged as the most hotly contested pick in the tournament, puzzling professionals about his sudden surge in popularity. Discussions on Reddit have revealed that without receiving any direct enhancements, Slardar's ascent might be partly due to the decline of other heroes in the meta.
Traditional Slardar countering heroes like Bristleback, Grimstroke, and Chaos Knight are currently less favored, enabling Slardar to dominate their stand-ins during the laning phase. As the Frostivus season approaches, the Dota 2 community is anticipating a significant update from Valve, which could potentially reduce Slardar's dominance in the lane.
