After the sudden demise of Filipino DOTA 2 caster Aldrin Paulo "Dunoo" Pangan last month, the entire community was filled with grief. Countless fans came forward and requested Valve to bring back some of Dunoo's iconic caster calls to pay respect and celebrate the shoutcaster's work.
With the new DOTA Plus Update for Fall 2021, Valve has chosen to do the right thing and has brought back three of Dunoo's most iconic calls in DOTA 2 history. Having said that, it is safe to say that the entire DOTA 2 community will always regard Dunoo as one of the most iconic and entertaining casters in the history of the game.
