Yesterday was another surprising day, as the hosts have revealed the compendium Arcana Votes. It’s a tradition that Valve adopted in the past, and every year at the International, there’s an Arcana Vote going on. Sadly, from all Dota 2 heroes, there’s only 1 winner. This year’s two heroes competing for the Arcana were Pudge and Rubick.
After the last year’s IO failure to get the Arcana, this year IO was excluded from the Vote because IO has gotten its Arcana by default.
It was a close fight between Pudge and Rubick, the two heroes fighting for the Arcana. If you have missed the announcement of the Winner, below you can watch the video and how close it was, from all of those 58 million people that have voted. Pudge has won the competition with a total difference of 8711 votes.
Pudge fans are extremely satisfied, as this arcana is expected to be one of the best ever. Fantasy Arcana incoming. Pudge is a hero that may get the best Arcana ever considering the abilities he owns. There must be some sick animation when a player is hooked and we expect some kind of animation on the Target’s monitor too, no matter how distractful it could be.
Congrats to all Pudge fans on your successful voting.
