Yatoro has been trialing a few meta Dota 2 carry heroes this week, and he is convinced that Phantom Assassin is “trash” and “overrated” despite surging in popularity this patch. Instead, he’s impressed with Gyrocopter and believes it will be a popular pick at The International 2023.
“Phantom Assassin. I think she’s trash, to be honest. I think she’s overrated,” he said on Nix’s Twitch stream earlier this week. Yatoro explained that if she doesn’t win a lane, it takes her a long time to catch up, which teams often don’t have time to do in the current meta.
