Matching well against the Chinese teams in online competitions prior to The International 2Zenith was considered one of the favorites going in after receiving their invites. This would be Loda's first International and playing with the 3rd place finishers of the first Internationalwhere most of the Zenith roster was playing under the name Scythe Gaming, seemed like a step up from the team he chose to leave back home.
Zenith faced off versus CLG in the group stages, winning the match and still looking strong, but after losing against the seemingly unstoppable LGD in the Upper Bracket semifinals, they lost the ensuing game versus Team DK and finished 6th in the tournament. Shortly after the tournament, Loda's friend and captain of Zenith hyhy announced his retirement and only a few days later Loda later also announced that he would leave Zenith and move back to Sweden.
Akke had not joined Pajkatt after the disbandment of the old CLG and looking through the community for other talented Swedish players, his eyes fell on former HoN player and rising star s4 who he had noticed as a skillful mid-solo during his time in HoN.
So in late October it was announced that Loda and his long time friend and teammate Akke would join the roster of No Tidehunter. They made it to the finals but lost to to Evil Geniuses but showed that they were a team not to be taken lightly, and two weeks later they traveled to Sweden for DreamHack Winter to play in their first offline tournament.
As they lost the first game in the best of three series, many thought they had no chance to take the tournament. But as the finals moved to a bigger arena for the second game, and after two impressive games in front of the home crowd No Tidehunter came out victorious, the first one featuring an unconventional tactic dubbed " The Bait " by fans.
The following week No Tidehunter attended their second offline event in Sweden, the Thor Opena tournament which the team qualified for before Loda and Akke joined. Featuring mostly Swedish teams, aside from the emerging European powerhouse of Fnaticand a first place prize ofSEK once again, many expected No Tidehunter to sweep the tournament in similar fashion as they did in the DreamHack group stages the week before. Loda had however said in several interviews during DreamHack that Fnatic was indeed a team to fear and probably one of the best teams in the west at the moment.

As predicted by many, the finals would be between Fnatic and No Tidehunter, but it seemed that Fnatic suddenly was the better team and swept Loda's team in the finals claiming the grand prize and marking the start of their dominance in the European scene and No Tidehunter only going home with 20, SEK.
Forging a new Alliance[ edit ] While still being a dominant team, No Tidehunter would fall into a slump in Januarynot beating a top tier teams regularly anymore, after captain EternaLEnVy went on a vacation in China during the Christmas break. As Loda felt the language barrier as well as other problems were getting in the way of the development of the team, having talked to the rest of the team, Loda finally talked to the hard-working young Canadian about handing over captaincy.
The team came in and completely destroyed and dominated the region. Turning compLexity upside down, they began to snatch all qualifiers and minor tournaments out from under them. Fine tuned precision in rotations, team fights coordination and scouting would lead the newly formed DC to victory.
The following day — on the back of superb individual plays and flawless team coordination, Digital Chaos managed to down Fnatic 2: An unlikely mixture that has produced ground breaking results. Misery is one of the few players who can boast having attended all six International events, albeit as a part of six different teams: The Danish player started his professional Dota career inas a semi-carry player.
They finished fourth, but disbanded within days. Later on in he would make the move to China to join LGD. However, 10 months later and only two achievements to show for his time in China, he announced his departure from the team and joined Team Dog, which was signed up by Mousesports right before The International 4. After a disappointing eleventh place finish, the team disbanded and several months later Misery settled into Cloud 9 during the January reshuffle.
Following a sub-par TI5 performance with Cloud 9 being eliminated on the second day of the main event -placing 10th overall the team disbanded.
Team Secret had an incredible strong start post-TI5, with their revamped roster. Followed by a bit of a slide in their performance and results, the team bounced back to the championship title and trophy at the Shanghai Major. There are MMO-style tank-and-spank fights, 'the floor is lava' encounters, bullet hell wizards, invisible ghosts, and giant Wraith Kings that have to all be slain at the same time to prevent them from respawning.
Figuring out each encounter is the first step, and understanding how to leverage Dota 2's vast pool of heroes to exploit them is the next. Luna's ability to bounce her glaive between lots of different foes is good in most rooms; the fact that she can't switch it off is potentially a nightmare in the room where you have to focus on hitting a big vase rather than any of the trolls standing next to it.
Laudably, Valve have made the entire roster of heroes available in Underhollow and been relatively free with how monsters interact with them.

They could have stacked bosses up with immunities and forced a particular playstyle, but they haven't and I think the mode is better for it. It's less balanced as a consequence, however, and while anything can work—this is Dota, after all—there are certain heroes who really love this structure. Axe, for example, thrives in multi-target encounters and is one of the rare heroes who actually becomes more dangerous when a teamfight takes place in a room that's still full of monsters.
Zeus' ability to nuke every single hero on the map at the same time is a big force multiplier in Underhollow, where it can sometimes randomly ruin another team's boss battle at the push of a button. This runs the risk of turning the hero drafting step into the most important moment of the game, with many of my early matches turning into a game of 'PICK AXE'.
As an Axe lifer, it's nice to see him get his moment—especially at the expense of perennial pub menace Pudge, who simply isn't very useful in the confines of the dungeon.
But this degree of one-sidedness is only forgivable because Underhollow is a throwaway mode to play over the summer.
