Defenders 019: Pudge
December 1, 2011
In light of yesterday’s bloated diatribe, I’ll try to keep it short today. I am glad to be able to fulfill kflay‘s wish with this most gruesome of Pudges. You know the drill by now; vote for tomorrow’s hero in the most recent Defenders thread over at r/Dota2.
Pudge is one of those iconic Dota heroes. He might even be the most iconic hero in the game. Not sure exactly why I feel this way. It’s probably a combination of tenure, a great signature ability, and the global sound effect of his ult. When Pudge is in the game, you know he’s in the game. I like Valve’s rework even more than the original, too. Pudge’s voice is actually intelligible for a change, the cockney old-time butcher angle really works, and I am downright smitten with that pompadour.
What hero do you think best represents Dota? Who is the face of the game?
