I have played one day on a new patch, the impressions are as follows:

I played mostly for Undeads, so the main thoughts will be on Undead match-ups.


1) The ritual dagger is useless. Why the hell do we need it for 125 gold (2 charges) for a regeneration of 100 HP? (Moreover, regeneration is lost when unit is attacked).

For fast expansion it is not suitable, there are not enough resources for the skeletons and the dagger.

Maybe for the healing in the middle of the game? Why!? I do not know the exact stats, but the regeneration of the dugger is the same as if the Undead stands on the cursed land and is under the 1st level aura of DK.

Especially considering the fact that most of the Undeads ("normal Undeads") play fast Tier 3, and the statues come out quickly, I don’t see any point in this item at all. Spending money on it is a loss of resources (there are always not enough resources when playing fast T3).

The only situation when it might be useful is if you play mass ghouls and either retreat with them or teleport back at the right moment, and then heal them at home. But again: what for!? Statues and even damn cannibalism will come out cheaper!

2) Necromancers - I don’t even see any potential to use them except against the Orcs (meaning, as a support for casters, and not garbage like the masses of skeletons).

But at the same time against Orcs it works stupidly worse than when playings banshees.

Why do I need cripple which really greatly reduces the speed of movement, at a cost of 85 mana, when I have curse (33% miss chance) for 30 mana? There is no need to comment anything here, the debuff by Cripple is simply weak (besides, it does not last long for heroes).

Frenzy has become a little weaker than before, but will not bring much meaning. First, you need to make 2 upgrades (although they are fast, 2 times faster than banshee upgrades, but more expensive).

Secondly : it is necessary to sacrifice something - complete nonsense! Anything that costs money to sacrifice is not profitable, and skeletons are not always available.

And most importantly, the range is quite modest. Sometimes it is very difficult to cover more than 5 goals by frenzy (if units are not placed in advance).

Particularly I am surprised by the stupidity that frenzy acts both on friendly and enemy units. Does it not resemble anything? (I mean here the old, non-usable healing spray of the alchemist that healed everyone earlier, before the buff [in 1.29]).

All in all, banshees are simply better. When opponent gets a dispel with 100 AOE dispel, I have to use 85 mana for a single target debuff - lol! Compare it with a banshee - which, even if there is a dispel with an orc - can always cast the Curse (30 mana) on one Blademaster manually - the effect of it will be noticeable immediately.

3) For the rest - ghouls frenzy has become stronger... Well, it’s great, but frenzy has already been great for ghouls, in my opinion ...

4) Gargs are cheaper and faster - funny, but what does it change?

However, against the old standard (not KOTG through), against DH + Panda / Naga / Alchemist + dryads / bears gargs do not work normally. And even if the mass gargs worked, it was necessary to make a transaction into the wyrms later, but they got nerfed (freezing breath became 3 times shorter).

If you play gargs against an elf that goes to the modern standard (KOTG / Alchemist + dragons and hypoarchers), you need to make a fast expansion. Again, if you make an expansion, there are 2 points:

  1. Elf can start with 2 AoW (and, moreover, he will also make his own expansion).
  2. Elf can make an expansion later, but will not go into the masses air , rather into archers and talons. It will work great for him.

If we talk about match-ups, then there is something like this:

1) Against the humans, probably, I will more often see humans playing a single base game into Tier 3 (for the orb). Or humans will just build more towers on the expansion and on the main base, the immediately go to the Knights + Orb.

Thanks God, Human Orb reduces healing for 3 seconds by 35% (and not 50% as it was in playtest release). I think humans will focus everything possible target now. Especially with new knights (Sundering Blades upgrade + 15% vs medium armor).

Although IMHO, this upgrade is made to fight the giants. But the fiends  may also suffer from it. I think if the game against human goes to the late stage (and undead will have its own expansion) it will be VERY hard for Undead...

2) Against the elf it will be all the same. As I said, the early expansion against the elf is too risky. Because it can be easily be punished by the good scouting and pushingh from 2 AoWs. In the worst case, Elf can just not playing the air. Here I mean the games against KOTG first.

Maybe now Elf will more often play with DH first, and of course, potentially for Undead it is easier to make an expand. But again - what for? Should Undead play mass gargoyles? They will not be of special use anyway… It is better to make a fast Tier 3

Otherwise, the match-up is the same. Or should I play mass necros against Elf? :D

3) Against Orc I think everything is also the same. Necros are stupidly worse than bansees. And BM now has again got imba crits, therefore there will be less Far Seer plays and more and more hero focus. Already today I have seen critical damages for 250-300. Very funny!

Nerfed windwalk for me as for undesed has no meaning at all. I do have spells that can stop BM (like a human bolt, or Elf’s entangles). Blade will run away anyway, with or without a cooldown.

4) Mirrors are without any changes. Maybe a dagger will be used for healing ghouls with early expansion (with DL?), but then again, what for? Lol! Expensive and not efficient.

The rest:

Rings can change a lot of meta, especially BM & DH will be happy with them. They will tank (two +3 rings are better better than two +6 claws). And for me, as Undead, sometimes, the rings are really very worth it sometimes.

In other words, physical damage will become less effective, but it works in both directions. Of course, for me as for Undead it is an advantage because Undead uses coil-nowa. But at the same time if BM has a couple of rings and Rune Braces, how should I kill him now?

Maybe it will be worth it to take Pitlord as tanking hero.

Buff of crystalball looks interesting! Now it will not immediately go for sale.

Aura armor. Now it is unlikely to sell it because +2 armor is really a powerful aura!

The remaining moments (for me, as Undead) are not so important.

These are the thoughts. In general, I don’t expect any special changes of the meta (I was hoping for Necros and I thought that the dagger would be much more powerful).

Special thanks

Colorful, Linguagua and HuG for the last Chinese spot!

This is the current Ranking of points system from Liquipedia.

And we made a small table for the intensest area.

From these two table, we know that Fly100% is confirm to be in offline stage. At the same time, the last Chinese spot will most likely be the winner of Colorful and Linguagua, depends on which players can get more points in this qualifier. 

Meanwhile, HuG has only a little chance. When if Colorful and Linguagua lose in Group Stage 2 and fail to be in Semi Final, and HuG could win this qualifier, which means three of them will tie with 31 points in this situation. I guess there will have an additional games for three of them.

What will happen in the last few days? Let's stay with our favourite casters and watch the games!

As most of us expected, Lawliet and Moon successed to win the APAC Finals. Lawliet won the tournament without any losing map, resulting 7-0; and Moon lost a map to Lawliet, resulting 6-1 in the final result.

Of course, we believe all their fans had been worrying about Moon and Lawliet, because Blizzard just updated the patch before the game. Luckily, Moon and Lawliet didn't disappoint their fans, and advanced to the Grand Final of WCG 2019. Congratulations to Moon and Lawliet!

  1. WGL: Happy and Cash won the WGL European Qualifier.
  2. H&W: Moon broke through the surround of Team Newbee and win H&W Masters.
  3. WCG: The chat of TeD and BO in the second round.
  4. WGL: The last  monthly qualifier will start today!

WGL: Happy and Cash won the WGL European Qualifier.

On May 26, WGL summer 2019 European Qualifiers continued the fight! Since he said yes to WGL, Happy won the European qualifying quota without losing a single map, easy and simple!

On the other hand, Foggy's performance made everyone so stunned. After he lost to the Russian random player JohnnyCage in the winner bracket Quarter Final, he was still fighting and reached the Lower Bracket Final. However, he lost to Cash's Human at last. Foggy fell in Europe!

Foggy may not be qualified this time.

In the European qualifier, he was defeated by mTw.Cash, meanwhile, his points were not high enough to ensure he can qualify. Although he still has the chance to make a final stroke in the qualifier in this month, but it's very hard for him. Let's see if he can make a great performance and go to Shanghai!

H&W: Moon broke through the surround of Team Newbee and win H&W Masters.

(Original Author: War3station, Translator: GLH, Click here to Source)

26th May is the last day of the H&W China vs Korea Masters. In the end, Moon easily defeated Lawliet in the Grand Final. After winning the WGL Winter in 2018, he won an offline event again after half of a year. Along this event, Chinese players played poorly in this tournament, and the top three were taken over by three South Korean players.

Match for Third: eer0 struggled in the game and lost to Lyn.

In the last six battle of eer0 vs Lyn, eer0 won only once. The gap between the two players in this patch has been showed slightly. 

In the first set on EI, eer0 lost 3 Crypt Fiends and a TP for cancelling Lyn' expansion. After that, Lyn went to creep jack and killed 2 Statues. eer0's troops had died more than half before the last fight.

In the second round of TR, eer0's hiding from the Blade Master and grew up his Death Knight to level 3 in the early game. In the mid game, he snatched the three creep camps in the middle of the map when he was having the strong timing. Although it's hard to guess who will win the direct fight, but eer0 expanded secretly and this gave him a strategic advantage. Lyn made a desperate all in to the expansion, but the Undead could easily defend their opponent at their base. eer0 regained a map.

When we went to the the deciding game on CH, Lyn made the Ogre Lord following him to base. At the strong timing, Lyn expanded at the Gold Mine that nearer to eer0 base, the two Reinforced Defense Towers were hard and rock-solid, eer0 had no choice but to type out GG.

Lawliet's strategies has a great effect, but Moon was just too strong.

Before the start of the finals, everyone said that Moon would definitely win the championship. Even Lyn, who's always being calm also said, Moon has the 80% of probability to win. Of course, Lawliet won't surrender easily. On the first map on TS, Lawliet started with Panda first, he's forcing Moon to upgrade to Tier 3 to use Bears, and avoiding the battle of mass Archers. Moon is so good in mass Archers mirror, so Lawliet chose a different strategy.

If there is the pure and mass Bear mirror, KOG's three-level Aura is so good, but how about the situation if there are some Chimaeras? That's why Lawliet is the best Night player when straining on different situation. He could do anything before you realized it!

In the second set of LR, Lawliet started with DH first and he wanted to make a surprise. Moon certainly won't give the opponent another chance. In the mid game, Moon summoned Naga as second hero, killed the Alchemist and took the initiative. After that, Moon choice to play with Dryads, and let Lawliet could only stay at base. Under the desperation, Lawliet planted Ancients of Protector at home, and pushed to Moon's expansion step by step. When he reached there, he realized that Moon had already been waiting for him with his Bears. How should Lawliet fight? GG.

Moon is the king in patch 1.30.

The next two sets had completely been controlling by Moon, and we had mass Archers mirror again in these two games. From these two games, we knew that Lawliet really has no chance when he plays regularly against Moon. Whether it's heroes position in the fight, focus fire, or overall view in the game, Lawliet is not as good as Moon, his failure is also reasonable.

After all, Moon still took the chance of the ending of patch 1.30. In this patch, he is the king. Can the Night Elf continue their glory in next patch?

WCG: The chat of TeD and BO in the second round.

On the second map on TR, before BO typed out GG, this the chat between them.

BO: Hey TeD, when you are standing on the stage, and holding the champion trophy
BO: Please remember me and my contribution.
TeD: ............
TeD: gg

So...TeD is the champion of WCG 2019?

WGL: The last  monthly qualifier will start today!

Compared with the pro division, we believe the open division games will be more interesting. Colorful,HuG, Linguagua and WFZ, all of them hope that they can win the championship in this month, so they can get more points and advance to the WGL offline. And there left only very few quotas, who will get it? Let's watch the games today!


1. WCG Chinese Qualifier: TH000, TeD, Infi advanced to the Regional Final.
2. H&W: Results of Semi Finals.
3. H&W: Games today. (No spoiler)
4. Sam Cup#8 is coming!
5. WGL European will be continued today, Foggy drops to the Lower Bracket!

WCG Chinese Qualifier: 
TH000, TeD, Infi advanced to the Regional Final.

After a few weekends, finally we have the Top 8 of WCG Chinese qualifier, the winners advanced to the Regional Final and they will play with Round Robin, (Bo1)Best of one. The Top 2 players will advance to the WCG main event in Xi’an.

H&W: Results of Semi Finals.

(This news is from War3station, and translated by GLH. Click here to the Source.)

Sorry I changed my strategy again.

The first semi-final was unfolded between Lawliet and Lyn. While the Orcs are constantly developing new strategies, like Shadow Hunter and Pit Lord combo, the Night Elves is constantly improving at the same time. In this series, Lawliet chose to play with double Ancients of War and Huntresses. He slowed down his expansion but he kept suppressing on Lyn, and this let Lyn suffering in the game.

In the first set of LR, Lawliet hid from the Blade Master in the early stage, and then, the Keeper of the Grove stole the Creep Camp beside the Gold Mine near the Orc and he reached level 3 very soon. After Lawliet upgraded Tier 2 tech, his troops were everywhere. Meanwhile, the troops made the Shadow Hunter did not dare to go out to leveling before the Shaman army was formed. Lyn also scouted for the Lawliet’s expansion all the time. However, Lawliet built the base at a very strange position, and he cleverly fooled his opponent’s eyes and ears.

In the mid game, Lawliet sense that Lyn’s creeping and he went for a creep jack. Lyn was completely surround by the Huntresses. And Lawliet even grabbed the Zeppelin. After the Shadow Hunter was killed, Lawliet was having a very huge advantage, and he even had a Zeppelin show. What a terrible game for Lyn.

And the last two sets…

In the second set on TR, Lyn finally recovered got back this familiar timing. The Far Seer and TC combo was unstoppable. Lawliet didn’t have any mistake in his micro, he even once surrounded the TC and saw the hope of victory. Unfortunately, the Night Elf without the expansion was still unable to withstand attrition battle. Finally, Lyn struggled to regain a set.

In the last match on CH, Lyn used SH and Pit Lord combo again, but he still did not solve the survival problem of the SH in the early stage. The SH was being chased by KotG all the way, wasting a TP and he also delayed the leveling time. When the Orcs reached 50 supply, the Night Elf was already mining with 2 Gold Mines, and 70 supply. At last, Lyn had no choice and he typed out GG.

"I must win this time!"

When eer0 said "I must win this time," The audiences clapped their hands. We’ve never seen that eer0 so serious, seems that he really wanted to take down Moon and fight for his fans.

Unfortunately, who err0 was facing in this time, is the most terrible Moon. In the first set on EI, Moon still used the Huntresses to start the game for his opponent. 120 was afraid to the opponent’s Wisps, so he could only choose to upgrade his tech to tier 3. However, Moon’s leveling with a really good plan. In the final battle, he had trained his Alchemist to level 3, and the level 2 Acid Bomb made eer0 so suffering. When eer0 was facing the mass Faerie Dragons, there was no space to let him to micro his Crypt Fiends. 120 was being chasing all the way back to home, and lost the game at last.

In the second set of LR, it’s the same story as the first one. Even worse, eer0 missed a few Death Coil in the fight. This mistake directly led to the loss. After Moon’s clever and good fight, eer0 lost the series. Since the patch 1.30, eer0 still hasn’t win a single series on Moon.
