Defenders 025: Jakiro

December 12, 2011


CWGM hesitantly requested the Twin Headed Dargon.  I humbly oblige…

Another name bungle (see my rant on Rhasta).  Does Twin Headed Dragon infringe on some Blizzard IP?  Do people actually call him Jakiro?  I always used 2HD or THD.  At any rate, I only have one story worth telling (debatable) about this guy…

Years ago, I got into an argument with a friend over who was the better Dota player.  He had come from a WC3 background, and maintained he had superior micro and map awareness.  At the time, I lived and breathed Dota, so I countered with encyclopaedic knowledge of skills and builds. Beers were being consumed at an alarming rate, and only served to fuel the debate (rhymesies!), eventually bringing it to head. There was only one way to determine who the true Dota master was: 1v1 -ARSH MID ONLY

Jakiro was randomed, and we proceeded to duke it out.  It was pretty spammy, as you can probably imagine, and our friends were cheering us on as we sat side by side playing what was probably some of the sloppiest Dota ever.  The game seemed to go on and on, and the drinks kept flowing until… my opponent passed out in his chair.  So, I won by default, I guess… which was good because I was down by like 10 kills.  I guess all it really proved was who handled their liquor better.

Dota had a lot of great (and not so great) alternate game modes that made antics such as this possible.  Which mode are you most looking forward to seeing in Dota 2?

    Nice one dude. What makes me kinda sad though, is that Valve version discriminate the firehead. The color and shape of iceone pull all the attention one herself. The fireone looks like belonging to dracowhelp :( v About the name issue…it varies. Depending on dota community, I suppose. There, where I come from, none calls Jakiro other than Jakiro.

    Just know that Jakiro’s backstory still refers to him as the Twin-Headed Dragon. He simply isn’t referred to as that in a battle, but it’s still his name.

    Yeah, I know. If you read my dissertation on Rhasta vs. Shadow Shaman, you’ll understand better what I mean.

    I think people call heroes by the shortest name as possible. Like you said, tiny instead of stone giant, slardar instead of slithereen guard, etc.

    I’m still waiting for Lion and Sand King though…
