However, ppd's true value lies in his status as the self-proclaimed Goblak 2.0. ppd has quickly become one of the most innovative and resourceful drafters in a new era of DotA.

But ppd doesn't push EG to the bleeding edge of drafting just for the sake of innovation. The results speak for themselves. At his first Dota 2 LAN, he promised "A lot of Midas, a lot of farm, and a lot of wins" from EG and the ride hasn't stopped since.
