Kevin “Purge” Godec will begin his joint project with Sean “Day” Plott – teaching the well known and respected Starcraft and Hearthstone personality the basics of Dota 2.
After a stagnated and quiet streak for Starcraft in recent times, Day has made it known he was looking to make his entrance into Dota 2.
While he hosts his own popular Day9 Daily show, where he casts and analyzes high level play he has limited experience and knowledge in Dota 2. His current solo MMR is 2.2k for and he has already devoured all of the content produced by Purge already.
The focus will be on general aspects and mechanics of the game such as roles, rotations, strategy and decision making skills. As he learns from Purge, renowned for his coaching skills and tutorials, viewers will also benefit by becoming much more familiar with the various topics and get insight into the coaching process from a professional.
The weekly series is expected to last 5-6 hours long for months running – a staggering total of 16 sessions – from 80-96 hours worth of content.
