Short interview with a WePlay! Dota Underlords Open participant — ZabeyYaka ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

The main stage of WePlay! Dota Underlords Open will start this Thursday already (August 1). The best sixteen players from the American (Crimson Gang) and European (Vicious Order) divisions will compete for the championship title in the autobattler.

Oleg "ZabeyYaka" Mikhailiuk (Twitch, VK) was one of those who proved his skill among 5082 people and joined the Crimson Gang. We discussed the latest patch and his expectations from participating in our tournament.

Do you have any experience in autobattlers other than Underlords?

I played Dota Auto Chess a little. But since I used to work a lot, there was not much free time. My rank was around Rook 2 [from 2660 to 2739].

Why do you like Dota Underlords?

I generally like Dota, and this is the game in which I win, not lose (laughs).

The Arc Warden cancer was cured in the recent patch - what do you think about it?

He was nerfed in the way that now he doesn't spawn so often now, but he is still a strong unit. Especially with four Primordials plus Mages. He can be useful at the beginning of the game as well.

What are your thoughts on the new patch, which was released last Tuesday?

If we talk about the general changes associated with the damage to your unit — it was rather unusual to play at first. The game has changed dramatically, but I adapted quickly, there were no difficulties.

The main thing in Dota Underlords is to be able to adapt and combine alliences on the fly. If you understand how the units work, you can quickly adapt to the updates.

Do you communicate with other participants in our tournament?

Yes, with many of them. For example, BarT_T, Aleksaa, NewTonee, shvepsss.

What are your expectations on the WePlay! tournament?

I expect new emotions and want to improve myself as a media person. I want people to know me more, so they could watch my streams because so far my channel is gaining momentum - it's only three weeks.

We wish a successful game in the next matches to Oleg!
