DOTA Madness - Chapter 101
In the next two days, Zhao Dingguo trained ten times with the temporary team formed by Yan Yuelan.
Among them, Yang Fei and Old Li were acquaintances of Zhao Dingguo. Except for Yan Yuelan, the only one he didn’t know was a man in his early thirties. According to Yan Yuelan, he was a loose BG user (who has not joined any BG organization). His AP was about 1200. However, the strength of that man was not weak, his ganking ability was quite fierce!
Such five people formed a team to deal with the Double Bet mode!
They trained three lineups on the training platform of the Order of Light, preparing to deal with different situations.
Although they played only five games a day on average, training was not something that the more you played, the better. You also needed to take the time to summarize and reflect. Sometimes, a battle may only take forty minutes, but the post-war review of the situation would take an hour! With such high-quality training and Yan Yuelan’s unreserved explanation, Zhao Dingguo’s understanding of DOTA has once again improved qualitatively! Of course, the tacit understanding between the five people also increased a little in the battle!
After the last two games were played, everyone, including Zhao Dingguo, was satisfied with their full preparation.
Unless the opponent’s strength was indeed far superior to them, they have an 80% chance of winning this battle!
This was the winning rate given by Yan Yuelan’s rough estimate!
The winning rate of 80% was already very high on the BG platform. However, this was the matter of life and death, it could not be overstated. So Zhao Dingguo took the time to come to the branch of the Order of Light to check the price of the primary ice magic system and to mortgage his Boots of Speed for 600 WP.
In this case, even if they lost in the end, he would not be obliterated!
After having enough WP for the deduction, Zhao Dingguo naturally felt much more secure. However, when querying the pages of the primary ice magic system, Zhao Dingguo unexpectedly found that the price of the prop was not cheap, was about 800-100 WP. As for the price of the advanced stage Specialization, it’s several times more.
This made Zhao Dingguo ecstatic when he lamented the difficulty of completing the second step of the bloodline quest. He just met and chat with Kael for a while, yet got a reward of 1,000 WP, which was not a small benefit.
And this was just the reward for the first step!
Having such a good mood, he was even more confident in the next special mode battle. After the appointed time arrived, Zhao Dingguo and Old Li opened the BG platform at the same time, waiting for Yan Yuelan’s invitation. The charismatic woman did not make them wait long, and soon sent an invitation: “BG user with ID 025639 has used a Team Contract (temporary) to invite you (the effect lasts for one match), do you accept?”
There was nothing to say about this, he naturally accepted.
“It was detected that the BG user with ID 037205 joined the Regular Match and was forced to enter Double Bet mode!”
“Beyond Godlike platform matching system is open, evaluating AP…”
“The automatic match has been completed. The new game D00047 in the Regular Match mode is about to begin!”
“Game mode: Double Bet, Pick-Up!”
“Because the game mode is Double Bet, the victory players will get 800 WP (based on the base pot). The defeated players will be deducted 800 WP (those with an insufficient amount of WP will be permanently obliterated). ”
After a series of routine reminders, Zhao Dingguo finished the preparations and started loading the screen!
Before getting a rank, there was roughly only one battle mode for BG users, which was the All Random mode. After entering Dawn rank, there were more modes that could be encountered. This time, Zhao Dingguo’s luck was undoubtedly good, as there was the Pick-Up mode. The five of them stayed on the same team, and they could choose the hero they want!
In this way, their training could maximize the effect!
The loading screen ended shortly after, and the familiar store appeared on the screen. Seeing the beginning of the selection of heroes, Zhao Dingguo could not help but take a deep breath. Even though he was consciously prepared, but 800 WP was a big amount, he was still a little panicked and worried.
It could be said that this match was a battle that he must win by all costs!
But isn’t it all the case for those BG users? It’s impossible to have a 100% victory rate, sometimes the result of the battle could not be changed by the will of a person! What he could do was to fully exert his strength as much as possible!
Thinking of this, Zhao Dingguo’s heart suddenly calmed down.
Don’t think about the results before the battle begins, just work hard to fight well!
“The Sentinel is starting to choose heroes!”
Yan Yuelan whispered in the voice channel. In the Regular Match of ranked users, they could already check the opponent’s lineup through the nameplate function, instead of waiting until the confrontation on the lane to determine what hero selected by the opponent.
As she was so reminded, Zhao Dingguo also noticed that the other party took the two cores first: Nevermore and Barathrum!
It seemed that the opponents were also prepared in advance. They didn’t hesitate much, and they quickly selected the remaining three heroes: Sven, Enigma, and Lion, respectively!
This was a dual-core lineup, and it had multiple CC, a good outbreak, and a strong later period. Especially the hero Enigma who was an initiator comparable to Earthshaker and Tidehunter. The most powerful point was that his ultimate Black Hole lasted four and bypass magic immunity. If he released a perfect ultimate, and then Nevermore’s Requiem of Souls could keep up, Zhao Dingguo’s side would lose for sure!
Gao Yue coughed and asked, “How will we fight?”
He was the only one who is unfamiliar with Zhao Dingguo. His sharp voice usually sounded strange.
Yan Yuelan carefully examined the opponent’s lineup, and finally decided: “Remember the second lineup we played? Just use that! I will play Spectre, Gao Yue will take Clockwerk Goblin, and the rest of you are free!”
After hearing the strongest Yan Yuelan’s speech, Zhao Dingguo acted quickly.
Yang Fei’s chose Tinker, and Old Li chose Furion. Zhao Dingguo took a look and took the last hero, Zeus. Coupled with Gao Yue’s Clockwerk Goblin and Yan Yuelan’s Spectre, they formed their second set of heroes-Global Lineup!
This was a lineup that takes a small range of gank to the extreme!
Each of the five heroes had at least one global ability – Furion’s Teleportation and Wrath of Nature; Clockwerk Goblin’s Rocket Flare; Spectre’s ultimate Haunt; Zeus’ ultimate Thundergod’s Wrath! As for Tinker, after having Boots of Travel, in accordance with his ultimate Rearm, he could be referred to as being everywhere!
In other words, they may only have one hero on a certain lane, but if necessary, they could instantly reinforce two or three heroes in just a few seconds. Others could also use global skills to form the advantage in a small area!
In this lineup, ganking could occur at any point on the map, and if necessary, even two or three battlefields could be opened at the same time. This was the name of the global stream!
A lineup that would play gank to the extreme was obviously effective against the dual-core lineup of the Sentinel. Especially in the middle period when the opponent had such a fragile carry with no escape skill like Nevermore, it’s almost one gank – one death! Moreover, Yan Yuelan’s Spectre was also a late hero, even if their global ganking did not work well, they could still compete in the later period!
