Mars! What is he good for? Absolutely a great deal of wars.
Another hero has joined the ranks of Dota 2. He’s a spear-chucking, shield-wielding melee carry who’s large into struggle, as a result of he’s actually the god of it. I guess you Legion Commander fancies him.
That’s partly due to the entire struggle factor, and partly as a result of his final is a bit like a big scale model of Legion’s duel potential. He summons a giant round ring, lined with troopers who poke at any enemy who comes shut. It’s a pleasant praise to his first potential, the place Mars chucks out a spear that knocks individuals backwards and stuns them in the event that they hit a tree, a constructing or a cliff. I’m at all times pleased to see the pool of ‘weapons that pin enemies to walls’ deepen.
He’s additionally received a protect slam that does a vital hit based mostly on his assault harm, and a passive that reduces harm from his entrance and sides. It all seems pleasingly dramatic.
More information and GIFs will be discovered on his intro page.
I’ve left Dota alone for too lengthy to leap into hypothesis about Mars’s place within the meta, so let’s speak about what a dick he’s as an alternative. Mars used to spend his time indulging “his basest impulses — inclinations much more monstrous” than these of his daddy Zeus. I don’t know if Dota lore ever touches on all of the homicide, torture and worse that Zeus is meant to have gotten as much as, but it surely’s nonetheless not an excellent look.
Apparently at some point Mars determined that struggle for the sake of struggle wasn’t worthwhile, and as an alternative dedicated himself to struggle for the sake of burning down “the pantheon of the old age” and constructing “a new empire atop the ashes of his kin”. What an enthralling fellow.
He’s playable in Dota 2 proper now, a free videogame on Steam that’s consumed extra hours of my life than I care to let you know. I relatively assume Mars may eat a number of extra extra.
