Sneyking Provides Insight on Which Dota 2 Teams Will Do Well in the New Patch
The International (TI) 11 champion Tundra Esports has had a dominating run after becoming a TI winner, consistently being one of the best teams in the world, and even placing second in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 2: Division I standings. The team has had a good run at Dreamleague Season 19, making it to the second group stage where the team only dropped one series to Team Liquid. In a post-match interview, Wu “Sneyking” Jingjun shared his views on which team would excel following the release of the upcoming patch, after Tundra’s impressive 2-0 win over OG.
Sneyking names Entity and Fishman to perform best once the patch is released
In the post-match interview, Sneyking was asked about which team he believes will adapt the fastest and perform well early into the release of the upcoming patch. Sneyking had an interesting reply, naming Dzmitry "Fishman" Palishchuk as a player that is able to adapt to new patches and changes very quickly, leading to Entity being able to perform well early into the new patch.
“I think Fishman has generally had a pretty good read on like what are the good supports in the meta. So I think he was pretty good at that. I think a big reason why Entity had success in the first (DPC) tour was because Fishman really understood the hero pool that he’s good at and what was good in the meta and he did a really good job at developing the Western Europe undying-disruptor meta,” Sneyking said.
Sneyking addressed many interesting questions throughout the post-match interview, including another one where he was asked which hero he usually looks for first in new patches to view changes. “I mean there’s a meme on our team, so I guess it would probably be this hero. Its always the Butcher (Pudge). None of our dota players play it but we always love meme-ing this sh*t for some reason, so then I guess it would just be Butcher. Pudge the Butcher, as we always say,” he said.
Entity placed last in the standings of their group at Dreamleague Season 19 and was eliminated from the tournament, winning none of its series. However, with the new patch, we may witness the team have a resurgence on the back of Fishman and his ability to analyze and break down changes that are made to the game.
