The Quarter Finals Vote Results

Looks like an army of Support-Supporters are very eager for their boy Ogre Magi to take the throne this year with a landslide win of 7.53M votes which is the 73.0% of the total voters. While the others rest on the 57%-60% scale in their victory, it was only Windranger who had a nail-biting battle against Invoker with a win of just .6% of a margin.
The Semifinals – Round #1

Round #1 will be Ogre Magi against Faceless Void. Let’s not forget here that if Faceless Void wins this one, it will be his 2nd appearance in a Grand Final of an Arcana Vote since he was a finalist in TI8’s Arcana Vote but unfortunately, he lost to Rubick. On the bright side, to be completely honest here, which ever hero win this round will be a win-win situation for both sides. Since Ogre Magi support is always great, you can never go wrong with a Tanky-Int hero with an early Bloodlust for attack and movement speed and also the multi-casting chances. While Faceless Void on the other hand, is pretty much not a toxic hero(unless the player is a madman on his Chrono skills) and as a matter of fact, he’s been rarely picked in tournaments lately though he still is a viable Safelane hero. He stands a 51.63% winrate in Pubs as of today.
Personally, I’m a big Void fan. Arcana will uncover details more about him or possibly an alternate one where does have a face? Because according to his lore, he used to have eyes until he had it removed as a requirement in worshipping his God. I’d love to know more about his past. Do you wan’t to see if Void is really Faceless in the beginning? Vote for Void!
The Semifinals – Round #2

Round #2 is the battle between w33’s signature hero WindRanger vs Mercurial the Spectre. Well, I think we all know who are we rooting for here. We can’t all have Spectre in our Pub matches because that’s just ludicrous. He’s a very easy counter in the early game, he pretty much can’t lane on his own, farms slow, and needs to get proper items in the right timings because trust me, you don’t want your Spectre to farm 30-35 mins in the game just to get a Radiance. Item is very important for this hero to be able to sustain and deal damage in fights. While I’m saying is all negative sides on this hero, I’m still not denying the fact that if drafted and played correctly, she’s a total monster. While the Windranger is not too bad of a choice here. She’s famous for her versatile attributes that can pretty much play every role other than Safelane.
Who are you rooting for this Semis? If you’re a Void fan, don’t hesitate to show the support! Tell us your votes down below and I’ll see you in the next one.
