This article is translated from SanSheng’s post on Games.lfeng.com.
First, let’s recall these quotes from Virtus.pro members:
The above quotes come from the interview after Virtus.pro’s victory over VGJ.Thunder at the Bucharest Major.
After mocking Chinese teams, VP started talking about WESG
Question: will you guys attend WESG?
Our Chinese teams have won TI 3 times and won 3 TI silver medals. Who are you guys mocking when you yourself have never appeared in the finals of TI?
Every year, when it’s only half a year away from TI, there’s always a Russian team ‘trash talk’ and extremely arrogant, thinking they’re the best team in the world. In the end, it only lasted 2-3 months before they started to fall apart and force a roster change.
You will pay the price for your arrogance. See you at TI8!
My years of experience as a player and coach have allowed me to draw this conclusion: in a match, there are many factors that are more important than the skill of the players. One of them is vision! When a player is overwhelmed, it’s not just his personal skill. Other reasons include tactical placement, hero counters, gameplay, resource allocation, etc. Even if you think this player is a noob, with TI approaching, roster changes don’t make sense. think a bit. Therefore, be more open. Do all you can to improve the team, for example sharing your experiences or encouraging your teammates.
Each time you are dewarded, it means the opponent will know your move. Whether it’s jungling, ganking, smoking or pushing turrets, the enemy knows it. Especially when you’re at a disadvantage, your support doesn’t dare to go ward on its own. Therefore, going up against someone like Solo – who is very good at breaking wards – is a difficult challenge.
I researched VP’s wards and found that they wards very systematically and are easy to catch. As a professional support player, I hope that my analysis of VP, as well as my knowledge of how VP’s wards work, will help Chinese teams deal well with VP and increase their team’s warding ability. Here’s what I hope I can do to protect China’s Dota glory
VP ward analysis
After a brief study of VP’s matches at PGL, they enjoyed playing on Radiant’s side.
At PGL, VP mainly plays on Radiant side. There were only two games they played on Dire’s side, including a win and a loss.
I realized that when VP plays with Radiant, even though the warding is very mischievous, they are still systematic. From my observations, if the Chinese teams had studied VP’s wards before the game, the results of PGL would have been different.
1. Obsever Ward keeps Roshan and Dire’s top lane
At this Major, VP placed wards almost exactly the same in all games. This is the place to ward before winning Roshan (1 minute after what you see from the screenshot, VP takes advantage of the vision from this ward and quickly kills three VG.J heroes from the Centaur + AA combo). When you’re up against VP, there’s no harm in placing wards here in the mid game. Your reward is not only 100 gold from dewarding.
Here’s one of VP’s favorite wards while roshan: the Ancient area on top of Dire.
2. Usually uses the obsever ward to keep an eye on Dire’s jungle
VP prioritizes vision in the Dire forest area. When the match started to get tense between the two sides, they enjoyed warding in the Dire forest. This ward position rarely changes.
3. Visibility in Dire forest area under bot
When VP has the advantage, they prioritize vision around the jungle area under the bot. They always use vision to capture core heroes while farming in this area. However, the creativity of the team when warding in this area is not new. The ward placement remains the same in many games.
4. “Advantage” of wards in the lane right behind the tower
When VP has the advantage in any lane and wants to push that lane, they usually put a ward right behind the previous turret…
5. Other jungle ward positions
Same location, but this time in a different direction
VP has some unique observer ward placement properties:
- Ward is extremely deep. They usually put an obsever ward behind the previous 2 turret, even before your 1 turret falls. Similarly, before your 2nd turret falls, they have placed a ward on the High ground. Since these wards are very deep, they are often dangerous and difficult to deward. Has anyone put sentry right in their base in the first 10 minutes of the game?
- Stable position. As you can see, wards are always in familiar places. It’s the same in all games, with a few minor changes.
- They ward off wards in the back of trees and in hiding, that’s why their ward positions don’t change.
Next time you face VP, put some sentry in a good position. Taking away their vision is no longer a dream. I’ll show you a few wards that can be placed after clearing a tree:
The next ward is for vision, as well as for blocking camp.
The following wards can be plugged directly and do not need to be cut.
The position of the ward in the high ground Dire top
Area view around ancient and river
Ward position in Radiant top lane in turret 2
Ward mid and jungle
Finally, best wishes to the Chinese team! We have bolded Dota 2 into our bodies, infiltrated our blood and bones. Let’s protect the glory of the Chinese teams of the ‘odd years’ together.
My name is Newbee.SanSheng, and my name is engraved on Aegis.
