Yatoro Talks About ATF and Malr1ne As Teammates

News portal Dota2.net recently shared the transcript of Yatoro from his recent stream where he talked about what it is like to be playing Dota 2 with ATF and Malr1ne. 

ATF, a young Jordanian player, has gained popularity in the Dota 2 community for his gameplay and in-game communication. He is also known to be "notoriously toxic." Yatoro humorously remarked that the first rule of Dota when playing with ATF is to keep him on "mute."


This sheds light on the challenges teams may face in managing communication dynamics, especially when dealing with players known for their assertive in-game presence.

Notably, ATF was notorious for dropping the “mantle of intelligence” in front of enemy bases during professional games after winning, suggesting to use some brain and disrespecting his opponents.



Regarding Malr1ne, Yatoro suggested that communication with him can also be a unique experience. He highlighted the difficulty of engaging with Malr1ne when he's in the mood for "clowning around," recounting instances where the player would entertain himself by singing songs from the 2000s during matches. 

The comments from Yatoro reflect the diversity of personalities within the gaming community and the need for effective communication strategies within professional teams.

Yatoro's remarks offer a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes dynamics of professional Dota 2 teams, showcasing the challenges and nuances that players face when collaborating with teammates of varying communication styles. While such revelations are entertaining for fans, they also underscore the importance of team cohesion and effective communication in the highly competitive world of esports.

Currently, Marlr1ne and ATF are playing for Team Falcons, the team is competing at the Pinnacle: 25 Year Anniversary Show. 

Based on Yatoro’s insights, it would be interesting to know what the team comms are like with these two dynamic players on the same team. Interested fans can tune into the official Twitch channel for the tournament to witness the action live.
