Why does Cancer Lancer exist ? Literally the worst hero existing, even Riki and blyatcyka are less cancerous.
Post your favorites I guess
haven't seen anyone play him in awhile around 3800 mmr
Well yeah I'm kind of a casual I only have 350 hours.
That still doesn't excuse the fact that he's cancerous. CK is built around illusions too and is less cancerous, same for TB.
>complaining about PL
Son, do you even know what old PL was like?
>Bitching about PL
Nigga you don't know the terror of 4.2.
which, besides Viper, are some very common picks in ranked and unranked simply because they can attack click on a teamfight and miraculously win it (while also pressing 3 buttons or less)
sure it's fun to win but the heros are just not fun to fight against at all unless the players are complete shit
He had 4.2 agility gain per level and his W, E, and R was different and his illusions lasted longer and all his illusions did 30% damage, leading to split push cancer lancer who still had sub 50% winrate in competitive dota but was picked often and frustrated many teams and viewers.
Why is nobody complaining about this cunt? His entire shtick is 'you don't get to do thing'. He sucks the fun out of any game he's in, he's boring to play and screws over teams simply by being near them when they die.
I am aware that BKB dispels the global silence but that doesn't stop the int drain or the ridiculous early game harass. Also the silence tends to hurt teamfight supports the most, who often can't farm a BKB because wards, dust etc.
You could say that about literally any hero.
>just hit him until he dies, don't feed him until he's 7 slotted.
>just played a game against a team of brood, riki, sf, lina and venge
>their riki buy a gem to counter my sentry wards
>he fuck up and die, we get the gem
>their team proceeds to get curbstomped into oblivion as we snowball out of control
It's funny that a 900g item ruined their game, and I didn't even have to buy it.
What's even funnier is they ALL (bar lina and obviously riki) built shadow blade, and that was after we got the gem.
You don't encounter this in high level play, do you ? That's a good reason to stay low skill
my favorite overall is ogre. i love everything about the hero but he sucks in terms of gameplay ever since the stun nerf.
i like doom but now that he's imba you can't really play him as often. i also like wk, sven, dk, jugg too.
>mfw Agh's on Undying when I tend to play offlane STR heroes
>Current Terrorblade in teamfights
>press Q to Dark Seer
>have ulti ready for if a tank rocks up and tries to hurt you
I really like SD in this current meta. Aghs too good.
I have a genuine question
When i need the courier to bring me my shit i just press F3, yet whenever i watch pros play they often select the courier, manually put their items on it and then have them brought to them, it seems like a waste of time to me.
What's the purpose of this?
A lot of it is habit. In warcraft, the most convenient thing to do was set courier as control group or cycle through your inactive workers, so for them it is just a part in getting their items.
In addition, you get more options when you control courier that way, you can set up a shift-queue path, you can empty courier items to make room for yours. In addition, in general WC3 vets are used to the function keys only affecting heroes.
Waifufags inbound, I'm out
I played for a long while but I honestly didn't spend THAT much on it so I guess I can't exactly feel what you're feeling.
Let's discuss designs, who got the better end of the stick than others?
Because Slardar is just fucking hideous and I miss the Naga Royal Guard/myrmidon design while I think they did amazing with Visage and Abaddon
I still can't believe after all this time; the pathing is still atrocious, hitboxes on both heroes and abilities are shitty and there are gameplay bugs that haven't been fixed since source 1. Too bad I can't go back to WC3 dota anymore, least it worked more accurately.
Also, I miss Slark's strictly murloc look.
And Naga Siren looks even uglier.
And by differentiating Drow from that bitch Slyvanas, they made her cute
I wish they kept the stone giant look for Tiny, I mean he looks good and all but I miss how fucking giant he used to look. Also
>Panda doesn't look like a panda anymore
>the pathing is still atrocious, hitboxes on both heroes and abilities are shitty and there are gameplay bugs that haven't been fixed since source 1.
Valve only cares about the money right now. See how much effort they put on immortals and arcana and 0 on new ported heroes.
We used to get a ported hero every month or so when it was in beta, now we're lucky if we get one per year since the cash cow is rolling.
I know, I know, I've been telling a friend this would happen since the fuckin cowboy ursa set. It's been going down hill for so long now. Just wish the game was in better hands, goddamnit.
> since the cash cow is rolling
There's no going back too, dota is pretty much fucked at this point.
I know, but still took a long time for us to get LC, Winter and Techies.
Also no remodels for Viper, Slardar and new textures for Jakiro. We're getting Zeus though after 2 years.
What I'm saying is that all those man hours spent making cosmetics could be used to improve the game. I didn't care before, but now that the cosmetic market is fucked up I really don't care about cosmetics anymore.
>but I don't know why there are two red numbers.
The two red numbers are actually from the same attack. The top one (The one with the lightning bolt) is from a critical hit, while the bottom one (Which has a blood-drop next to it, but you can't really see it because the cursor is in the way) just signifies a big hit larger then I think 40% of your health or something like that. I don't remember the exact number off the top of my head.
So in the gif she got force-staffed and then killed the presumably extremely underfed invoker in one critical auto attack.
Post your favorite ult sounds
Nice, Sanity's Eclipse is great
Add me some Echo Slam, CK's Phantasm with the extra clone proc, Lycan's Transformation, Sven's roar, Borrowed Time, and last but not least
MFW your team think it is a easy win cause their AM is a retard and they start to play like idiots. When I start to ask for team fights and not going solo, I end up yelling at them to listen in the end "plz stahp being egoistic douchebag" I get for answer. AM is suddenly Jason, Their Storm is the fattest man alive and their WR is a Finish WWII sniper.
>mfw me and a friend ran a Veno/Viper offlane just to shit on the other team's carry
I used to play in Warcraft 3. I tried Dota 2 and I have to wonder, why do people still play it? Even back then I hated that Dota overwhelmed the Bnet game list to the point where better maps saw little to no play.
