It is fair to say that the month-long tournament Omega League was an incredible success. The community loved the fun panels, late-night shows, casting talent and the production effort! It is almost on par with the quality that we get from The International in Dota 2 standards. The tournament with its hysterics grabbed a good viewership as last night, Team Secret went on to win the Finals. In a convincing fell-swoop, Team Secrets defeated OG 3-0 dominating this years’ tournaments in style. And in the late-night show, we had a secret reveal! Danko- the Dolphin came out and it is most definitely a meme.
Danko The Delphin- A New Dota 2 Hero? NO!
Please remove any misconception beforehand, this campaign is spearheaded by SirActionSlacks to fool you Dota 2 enthusiasts. There is no new Dota 2 hero coming this year but I must say they have put a lot of thought behind this. As a meme, Omega League talent unveiled a new hero, Danko the Dolphin and I must say I would love to actually see him in my favourite MOBA.
When I first saw the reveal I actually thought that it was a new Dota 2 hero, it looked that legit. But what they misjudged was the art content. Dota 2 has its own art style which most definitely did not match the contents of Danko the Dolphin. But it was a good effort.
The Skills of the new Dota 2 character (NO!) are:
- Puffer Punt
- Dank Dive (HAHA)
- Echo Location (actually cool!)
- So Long, and thanks for all the fish (does that mean Slardar?)
I pray for the poor chap that saw the news and was like I will repost it to my 100 followers! In another news in Dota 2, we do have Windranger arcana drop this week. Also some major Content Exclusivity update as well as future tournament discussion.
We take our time to say Congratulations Team Secret for winning a 7th Straight Dota 2 Title! Go check out this Twitter war between OG and Secret.
