The New Journey Update + Interview with Ohaiyo

Dota 2 players have been treated to a massive update with the 7.00 patch. The New Journey has officially begun and it has brought major change to the game. To read about all the changes in Patch 7.00 check out the official update page here

The HUD has gone through a makeover with a plethora of new options available to players. The Hero Control panel now sports a one-click level up feature, allowing players to easily level up in the middle of the most chaotic fights. Hero talents have also been added allowing you to unlock a bonus at level 10, 15, 20 and 25. Players now also have access to a backpack allowing them to carry an additional 3 items which will assist them in getting the perfect build, completing recipes and more!

One of the biggest changes has been the map update. Roshan has been moved to the top of the map, he has also gained a few buffs to his attack range, armour and armor gain. Valve have also added a number of Shrines to the map, giving each team the ability to regenerate without having to travel all the way back to base. The new Shrines can be found near each team’s Secret Shop and new Ancient Camp locations.

Lastly, the biggest change of the patch is the addition of Monkey King! Learn more about the new heroes abilities and lore on the official valve page.



With the introduction of 7.00 we see a massive change to the standard Dota 2 Map. What do you think about the new layout such as Roshan being moved and Bounty runes being moved from the river?

Ohaiyo: Well, I guess it’s a really big change for this patch because there are a lot of things you can do when it comes to the runes. You can use some big plan and play around the bounty rune while it’s going to spawn. Things like smoke and make tempo from that. Rosh is going to be harder to take because of the Shrine, which will make it much easier to reach the Roshan pit.

There is also the addition of hero talents, what do you think about this feature?

Ohaiyo: The talents trees is a new thing that we have to analyze and use wisely because the talents can make the hero have a totally different playstyle, which is good because it gives us access to more strategic ways of playing the game.

The community has a lot of mixed feelings about the hud changes, some preferred the old bulky version and some prefer the new slimmer version. Where do you stand on this debate?

Ohaiyo: It’s nothing special for us because we just know time will fix it. The only thing I don’t feel comfortable with is that you can’t use hotkeys for the shop anymore.

A lot has changed with the new patch. The meta has been shaken up and the game almost feels brand new, what has been your favourite change to the heroes so far?

Ohaiyo: For me right now it’s Zeus because the Scepter can provide you with an extra skill, haha.

Give us your thoughts on the changes to Dark Seer, Nature’s Prophet and Bat Rider?

Ohaiyo: Dark Seer right now is much more tanky if you choose the correct talents (At level 10 12% evasion, at level 15 14hp regen per sec). I haven’t played Nature’s Prophet yet but Batrider is also much improved because of the lane changes and the shrine, which allow you to play a better dual lane while also pressuring the opponent's safelane.

Monkey King has been added to the game! What are your thoughts on the new Hero & have you had a chance to play around with him?

Ohaiyo: I love this hero so much since Chinese people know him so well. Right now, this hero is really fun and imbalanced and I really like playing him (I’m still practicing actually). I also feel like the best position for him is a 3rd/4th position because as a support he’s good at ganking and disables, since he doesn’t need the mana so much. As an offlaner he can also work if he gets some basic items. He can also become a good carry.

    Ohaiyo, since 7.0 is a 'new beginning' have you given any thought to trying a new position in competitive? I know you are an amazing offlaner, but playing more positions gives you good versatility imo, and I think you could play well both as roaming 4 or even mid or carry.

    Hello,
    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of, especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
    When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wants me to be happy. But obviously what would make me happy would be to have him all to myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return. Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2 month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him direct with his email address [email protected] I thank you Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every social media or place i may go to.

    Am grateful my husband is back, During my time of difficulty and heartbreak i was able to find refuge in the hands of Dr.WISE through his act of spell casting that he was able to bring my lover back within 48 hours, my husband left me and the kids for another woman and he said to me that he just want to be alone for sometime and i was so depress by his words and action but not knowing he did it because of another woman. The first time i read an article about Dr.WISE i was wondering if all the things that i read about were true because a lot of people where testifying about his good work, But since i was desperate to get my lover back i had no choice than to contact him And to my greatest surprise i was able to get a positive result that got me shocked because my lover called me within 48hours that i contacted him. thank you Dr.WISE. contact him via email address: [email protected] or call his mobile number +2347019845256

    I am Max Hannah, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 1 years of broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids. I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, I was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Isa hazzan, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb, and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Sonia, she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Isa hazzan e-mail address. After reading all these, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We resolved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Isa hazzan, He is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man... If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you.

    Hello,
    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful
