THE META

While Dota 2 is at its core “just a game”, the competitive nature is a huge part of the overall enjoyment of the experience. As balance patches change how the game is played, certain heroes fit the playstyle better than others. We refer to this as “the meta” which evolves based on what wins games most consistently. Walk the meta path and discover how winning ain’t everything, but it sure is fun.
Learn what new mechanics you can utilize to win games
Discover the over-powered heroes that will gain you MMR
Get ahead of the meta and dominate your games
