Dota 2 Mid Matchups -Kunkka vs Ember Spirit - Who will win? ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


There are not that many melee heroes that do well in mid. However, when it comes down to Ember Spirit and Kunkka, we can safely say that they are an exception. Both of these heroes are extremely strong, especially when they get a head start. However, what will happen if they clash in a one versus one scenario? Well, generally speaking, it all depends on the individual skill of each player. That said, if both of them are equally good, it can be pretty hard to tell who will win.

Advantages of Ember Spirit

The first big advantage that ES has over Kunkka is his second skill. Even though the damage might not seem as much at first, it stacks very well, especially when ember hits level 5. Speaking of levels, the most important level in this matchup is six because Ember will be able to use his remnants both offensive and defensive. If he times his skills right, Ember can easily dodge the annoying X -> Torrent -> Ghost ship combo that's capable of doing loads of damage.

Advantages of Kunkka

We can safely say that Kunkka is the stronger hero in this match because he just deals a lot more damage. Even if Ember plays very carefully, Kunkka can easily use his Tidebringer and slowly but steadily bully the fire spirit from his lane. Also, let's not forget the simple yet super effective X combo. Unless Ember dodges it, Kunkka will probably 100-0 him in just a matter of seconds.

Final Verdict

It's safe to say that Kunkka is definitely the stronger laner out of the two. This hero has been one of the most dominant mid laners in the last couple of years, and despite the nerfs, he still remains one of the kings of this lane.
