The video uploaded on Team Secret's YouTube channel gets the thoughts of five members of Team Secret on the newest hero added to the game as part of the 7.0 update, Monkey King.
Yeik Nai 'MidOne' Zheng and Pyo 'MP' Noa both agreed that Monkey King is not particularly strong, and that he is easily countered by Slark or a hero with high evasion. MidOne also added that the hero's farm rate is poor. Johan 'pieliedie' Åström admitted said he had only played 2 games on the hero himself, but from his experience the hero is only really "broken" during the first 5 minutes of the game.
Clement 'Puppey' Ivanov on the other hand appeared still confused what role Monkey King has in the game. "I'm still really not sure what Monkey King does, he just jumps around does some stupid stuff. He has a stun, he has some lifesteal, right now it's not easy to figure out what exactly you are besides a hero that builds those type of items and right clicks. I understand what his spells do but for what reason do we need this hero in the game."
The captain of Secret went on to explain he has yet to understand the reasoning behind the addition of Monkey King, reasoning he can find for the other recent additions to Dota 2 such as Elder Titan or Phoenix.
