Entity midlaner Volodymyr “No[o]ne” Minenko is not happy with the current meta; find out why
Entity midlaner Volodymyr “No[o]ne” Minenko recently delved into the nuances of the current Dota 2 patch, highlighting the challenges that have hindered his performance. No[o]ne has criticized the changes the new patch makes and explained why it made the game incredibly difficult for him.
What did No[o]ne Say About The New Dota 2 Patch?
No[o]ne recently produced an in-depth analysis of the current Dota 2 meta. Expressing his viewpoint, he emphasized the evolving landscape where winning a pub match solely through the efforts of midlane heroes has become arduous. According to him, the dynamics have shifted, making it increasingly challenging to carry a team alone from the midlane.
During a recent stream, No[o]ne] drew comparisons between the roles of midlaners and supports, illustrating how the influence and impact of midlane heroes have seemingly diminished in contrast to the rising significance of support heroes in the current meta. The former NAVI and Virtus.pro man highlighted the changing dynamics, suggesting that the power to shape the outcome of a match has seen a redistribution among roles, where midlaners no longer hold the autonomous dominance they previously did.
“Even if I have 10-0 on Puck, it won't help me win in a Dota 2 game,” he explained. “From my bitter six-month experience of playing this f***king patch, where mid player is a support, I know that it's not the mid players who carry. That's how it is at low ranks, but everything is different at high MMR. People there play well and responsibly.”
Previously, No[o]ne humorously reminisced about his past actions of intentionally breaking items in public matches. He jokingly attributed this behavior to a desire to end matches quickly. He sarcastically mentioned attempting to go AFK with the expectation that it would prompt others to end the game swiftly, citing frustration with “some idiots who'd continue playing.” He was quick to clarify afterward that he was joking and his comments should be taken lightheartedly.
No[o]ne officially became a part of Entity in mid-November 2023, marking his arrival alongside Dmitry “DM” Dorokhin. Despite his inclusion in the team roster, he hasn't had the opportunity to participate in any games with the squad yet. His absence from competitive play was notable during the ESL One Kuala Lumpur 2023 qualification matches due to his vacation schedule, which coincided with the event.
