The 5 Greatest DOTA 2 Players of All Time
Image Source: Daily Esports DOTA 2 is the reigning giant of esports. And so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that some of the most revered esports legends are found within the Ancient realm, and they continue to gain respect from all over the world with their unmatched legacy. And who are these Ancient legends, you might ask? If you’re wondering who among the world’s most outstanding players reached the DOTA 2 GOAT status, I’ve listed them down below. Here are the five greatest DOTA 2 players of all time. Dendi If we’re talking about elite players that truly changed the game, then we have to mention the Danil “Dendi” Ishutin. The Ukranian power player elevated the competition right from the beginning after winning the first International with Natus Vincere, and sustaining that by breaking into 3 consecutive TI finals. And who could ever forget that iconic Pudge Cosplay? Puppey Esports bettors who got to join the DOTA 2 bracket in Nitrogen Sports instantly knew that Puppey was going to be one of the shoo-ins for the title. Clement “Puppey” Ivanov easily attached success to his name when he assembled Team Secret - one of International’s dominant teams - just after winning a TI title as captain. Kuroky Kuro “Kuroky” Takhasomi is also one of Natus Vincere’s brightest stars. Although strays from the fame as much as he could, his impressive career still finds a way to peek into the blinders. Fans saw huge potential for Kuroky to become one of the top DOTA 2 GOATs after leading the crusade as leader of Team Liquid, actively searching for fresh talent and eventually forming a solid team that would win the TI7. PPD Peter Dager put the genius in Evil Geniuses. As captain of another powerhouse TI team, PPD banks on his unwavering drive, aggression, and dominant character to lead EG to victory and it shows. Thanks to PPD, EG became TI5 champions and top three finishers in 2014 and 2016. Miracle- And last but absolutely not the least, we have Miracle-. The name could pretty much speak for itself. I mean, I’d definitely call it a miracle if you’re the only player in the history of the game to reach 9000 MMR, which he achieved in 2016. That’s DOTA 2 GOAT behavior for me. Although his career isn’t as stellar as Puppey’s or Dendi’s his name is still deeply carved into DOTA 2’s hall of the greatest.

E-sports on the border of breakthrough?
Yesterday I did watch for the first time an e-sports competition. Due to the lack of real sports activity, the sports pay channel I have did broadcast 2 F1 e-sports competitions. First they did broadcast a F1 exhibition race, between real F1 e-sports drivers. Don't be fooled, some of these drivers do earn more in one year than we will earn in 10+ years. After that the main event was served. A virtual GP of China, driven in F1 2019 from ea sports. The line up was a mix of real F1 racers, real racers from other or lower competitions and some more known people, like Real goalie Courtois and Ciro Immobile. With nothing else on the TV I did see the complete GP, which had 28 laps (50% of a real race). And there were some great things and some things which could be improved. Some images did gave you the idea that you were watching a real F1 race. Others clearly indicated that it was a sim. But hey have you ever seen an interview with a f1 driver live during a GP? Well in the e-sports variant this is possible, which gives it an extra dimension. The minor things were some unclear time penalties during the qualification, which makes it hard to understand. When in a real qualification a time penalty would have been given, lots of footage would have been available. Also during the race some drivers did get one of more 3 seconds time penalties after multiple warning and not respecting the track limits. But also here no prove available. Which also was a set back, it that when you are going the lap a car, you can just drive through it?? I can understand the idea behind it, but this will never happen in real life! I know that the setting can be altered so that damage would 100% of the real damage and would mean a DNF, while in this situation only a netwerk or computer problem would result in a DNF. But I did enjoy this 1.5 hour broadcast. It was better than nothing and can't wait until thet will broadcast a FIFA tournament or so! Cheers, Peter
