Offlane guide from DkPhobos (Ex Virtus Pro and Na’Vi offlaner)
Alexander “DkPhobos” Kucheria is one of the most well known and respected offlaners in the CIS region, and there is a reason for it. Ukrainian offlaner not only had a great comeback in his career, where after almost a 5 year break (DkPhobos was a programmer at Na’Vi for all that time) he returned to the pro scene, played in such team as Na;Vi, VP and Team Spirit, and achieved 5–6th place on the TI5 with VP. He is also known as one of the most stable-performing offlaners with a very big hero pool.
DkPhobos went inactive from 2018, but there is still more than a decade of Dota experience behind his shoulders. and I personally think it is always very useful to see the perspective on which pro’s look at Dota.
