Statistics in the commenting and analytics of DotA has always been. First, the most primitive. The effectiveness of teams and players was determined by the number of purchased artifacts and kills made. The appearance of graphs of gold and experience has turned the understanding and perception of the game not only commentators, but also professionals. And access to all API data in December 2012 was a real breakthrough in the world of Dota 2 statistics. Automated tools that grew into entire sites came to replace the manual collection of dota 2 sites for betting information. Bruno Carlucci can be safely called the first official statistician in DotA. An engineer by training, a computer science teacher at the university, and just that guy in a strange suit. For the first time in the Dota community, he became famous thanks to the Dota Academy project, the first site with statistics of professional teams. The portal quickly gained fame, and in 2012 Bruno was invited to work on TI. He believed that he would stand behind the camera and help commentators gather information about the participants, and he himself was seated at the table. So the first professional statistician appeared on the air. Without a laptop, but with the famous yellow notebook. Now the data shared by Bruno seems simple, raw and boring. He talked about which heroes are most often taken by teams, which characters are left unattended and which of the players has a high GPM. He threw his written numbers to his colleagues and made them juggle mixed up with jokes. However, when it came to drafts, for uninitiated viewers it looked like little magic. Bruno could predict spades and bans, correctly guess the ligaments - and all this thanks to notes in a notebook. “Numbers are what I get along with easily. In fact, I was trying to understand how good the heroes / teams / layout of the lines were, but there was no way for this. That's why I created the Dota-Academy, and it turned out to be a useful and interesting experience. Then, in Seattle, James came up with the nickname "Statsman Bruno". People found it funny, and by the time we realized that it’s better for me to make people laugh, I was already amusing people with jokes about the statistics of players! ”, Bruno told about his work.
