Dota Plus Fall update honours late caster Dunoo
In case Dota 2 esports fans didn’t know, the iconic Filipino caster, Aldrin Paulo “Dunoo” Pangan, passed away late last month. If the name doesn’t ring a bell right away, well, then remember this: “Lakad Matataaaag! Normalin Normalin”. Dunoo passed away from COVID-19 in late August and the community was in shock. Now, Valve has honoured the famous caster in the Dota Plus Fall update.
