Streamer Henrik “AdmiralBulldog” Ahnberg commented on the changes in Captain’s Mode in patch 7.27 for Dota 2. He noted that with a decrease in the number of bans in the first stage, he should return to the professional scene.
During their run on Alliance, the signature heroes of AdmiralBulldog were Lone Druid and Nature’s Prophet which opponents often banned them in the first phase. On Twitter, Anberg was responded by former teammate, Joakim “Akke” Akterhall. His strongest hero was Chen, whom opponents often ban right at the beginning of the draft. Twitter users asked former pro not to give false hopes.
They played together in Alliance (at that time – No Tidehunter) from the end of 2012 and won at The International 2013. AdmiralBulldog ended his professional career in August 2016 and Akke announced his departure from the professional scene a year later.
Patch 7.27 for Dota 2 was released on the night of June 29th. Valve changed most of the items, redesigned the in-game economy, and revised the draft order in several modes. Dota’s lead developer - IceFrog previously stated that Valve will later release the second part of the update which will focus on the heroes.
