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

WePlay! Dota Underlords Open qualifiers will end today, after matches in European division, and we already know the names of the American division Top-8 players - Crimson Gang.

The last patch was released during the first round of the Open Qualifiers, so the players had to update the game between matches and get used to it on the fly. The Arc Warden cancer was cured, and we discussed it with Petar "Gaara" Stevanovic (Twitch, Twitter), one of the European participants.

We know about your great Hearthstone background: was it hard to switch to Dota Underlords or these games have something in common?

It wasn’t very difficult, because I played the Dota Auto Chess Version to Queen Rank, so I was very familiar with the autobattler before I got into Underlords.

Why do you like Dota Underlords?

I tried it out and liked it more than the other autobattlers that I played. My decisions seem to matter more (high skill-cap) than in other autochess games.

Arc Warden was nerfed in a recent patch - what do you think about it?

I think it's good because it was ruining some of the fun in the Game, even though I was also ruining other peoples fun in the game with it as well :)

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

Good changes overall, even though I'm not a big fan of Lycan to be a hunter now, and there is still a lot more that has to be improved, but I believe that "updatelords" will keep delivering!

New meta - new strategies. Were you prepared for such a change?

There was almost no time to prepare, to be honest, post-patch is pretty much pre-patch. All you can do to get familiar with the changes is to play as much as possible. Some of the updates are very big fundamental changes to the game. I discuss ideas with my friend Snofe [was the first in the world to reach the Lord of White Spire rank - ed.] — he is a very good player.

Do you communicate with other participants in our tournament?

I talk with a lot of the Lord players, because they join my stream, but I mainly discuss things with Snofe, he is also in the tournament.

What are your expectations on WePlay! Dota Underlords tournament?

To not drop out early :P

We wish good luck to Petar in today's matches!
