>Game is won by breaking buildings not man fighting heroes on hypothetical scenarios and hearth is better at that even without the agi damage
yes but games comes down to your carry being able to kill the other carry.
your scenario is only valid if AM is pushing early and take alot of punishment from nukes which is already salvageable with spell shield

Why isn't sing streaming?
I planned to spend this fine friday night playing single player games while watching sing and now I'm sad.
I've played Dota since 2003. I played it in highschool along other mods. I joined the US Navy and while I was in several other people I worked with would lan wc3 dota weekly. Dota has been apart of my life and now I feel like it doesn't do it any more. Is there any way to rekindle the Dota magic?
Sorry for blogging
that's how live works honey, everything has an end
what are you guys talking about? did something happen to bob ross? I already said couple days ago he was streaming too much, hope he's alright and resting tight
Is she a llama down under?
>grown ass man watching some decades old show and get emotional over it
no wonder you all are bad at this game
they are good
maybe replace bulba because he is washed up and making alot of misplays
but american offlaners are scarce,maybe replace TC for monkeys or grant but wouldn't make much of a difference either
autism is watching these shits instead of something actually relevant in this age and day
how brain damaged you need to be to get this done on your chest?
>no Bob Ross hero
Literally wtf dotards no wonder youre a dead game
So you're telling me all I need to do for easy replies is go to reddit, get the top post on the wtf board and post it here? I never knew it was so easy!
HOW IS THIS FUCKING BALANCED
EVERYONE PLAYING THIS GAME DESERVES TO DIE
EVERY FUCKING GAME WINDSHIT, EMBER SPIRIT, DOOM, ALCHEMIST SAME FUCKING NIGGER SHIT OVER AND OVER AGAIN
can't get off the ride until it ends.
it only ends when you're 8k and hate this game.
also, post cute meepos.
Guys this thread seems pretty dead. Only 59 unique posters.
its going better now senpai
apparently instalocking mid is all I need to do!
>tfw no Anime girl with a Mech Hero
Is there any salvation left for DOTA?
WoW subscription is down so much that they recently decided to stop releasing subscriber number.
They also bought King (maker of Candy Crush), to pad their revenue, to mask how ded all their game besides Hearthstone is.
Whenever a company withholds information, chances are, they are in some deep shit.
Due to the rarity and rapid postpartum mortality of ectopia cordis, limited treatment options have been developed. Successful surgeries have been performed, but the mortality rate remains high.
Hope she is well :(
>over 100 hours
Trust me, you don't want to jump into ranked with ONLY 100 hours. Unranked is like training wheels and you have to learn to ride the bike before taking them off because if you jump right into ranked you'll get calibrated to like 1.2k and you'll be pissed the fuck off
Here's what I do, with 1 little remark: F1 to select main hero is a habit for me since WC3 days.
1 - all meepoes
2 - all clones
3 - 3rd clone
4 - 4th clone
5 - 5th clone
Selecting every group this way has different meepo/clone on first selection.
keep up the good work senpai you will get there
Ranked is like ten times worse than unranked. Somehow the skill disparity between players is completely fucking insane in matches where everyone is -/+25 mmr away from eachother, people are reporting eachother like the fist of the north star when they lose, everyone is tryharding like fuck (and half of the time completely screw it up) and picking the most broken fotm cancer heroes.
I was actually having fun when I couldn't play ranked yet, now every match is godawful niggerfaggot trash. Every win is behind a 1h+ game that your team only wins because someone on the other team throws harder, you get unbelievable retards on your team and autolose half of the games because the system is completely broken and a lot of people are clearly way below or above their MMR in skill.
I'm pretty close to just quitting the game at this point.
I jumped straight into ranked on the first account I played Dota on and I can say that everyone there is just legitimately awful. The kind of people that click their skills, basically. I had to climb out of the trench and it was extremely painful (4k now)
That's because it's unranked
>tfw I calibrated too early on my main account
>make a smurf account to calibrate again after actually getting good at dota 2 and knowing the game
>mfw I have 138 hours on my smurf and I'm still level 15

WAKE ME UP
No but really how do people like this get out of 500MMR. Dude had no situational awareness, played Winter Wyvern, and kept ulting their extremely tanky Wraith King instead of anyone else that Wraith King would have 3 hit turning it into a 5v4 instead of a shitshow where we got trashcanned.
>carried to their mmr
>wasn't playing his best / tilted
>lacks in certain areas that didn't come up in enough games to keep him from rising in mmr
>"Guys how do we make the game seem even more fast paced without actual effort?"
>"what if its literally 15 frames per second animations"
>we only have one set of raxes left
>enemy void yolo timewalks and ults our support and nobody else multiple fights in a row and they get shrekt
>somehow we win in an impossible game because the enemies have one complete fucking retard playing key position
that's why im exclusively playing party unranked
sometimes we do stupid shit and random weak lanes but still win because the enemy is realistically 1k below us
even if im playing with 2k's, its 2k players i can trust not doing something overly stupid and we come out on top even in VHS
No, post images of the worst hero in the game
I've been looking to pick up the hardest carry possible but everyone also tells me Faceless is only OK now. Who should I play
that isn't Doom?
Drow doesn't have a sub-50% winrate, and numbers don't lie.
Would anyone like to play together? I'm 3k scum but I'm just looking to play with some other people. Don't care about rank.
Steam name is CombatFedEx
>have hard time in lane as ember
>play conservatively, dont die, use remnant + tp to farm lane when I can and jungle inbetween
>build pt, aquila, wand, bottle, blink + tp
>go balls deep in fights without blinking an eye and get 24 min bf into ez game
I knew I wasn't crazy when I theory crafted blink ember 6 months ago
i miss when dota was good
still remember how i came home early, lgd.int was playing their first lan and thru some miracle got to the finals and gave some close games, it was so fun to watch the west vs east games because they literally happend on like 2 or 3 lans a year and our boys were always the underdogs
now its just same shit teams playing every week with zero consistency
after that watching that i played some, maybe some phantom lancer, had perfect lane because offlane wasnt safer than safe lane, made some tranquils for sustain, just had fun
or went OD, got tranqs to proc aura, life was great, got every creep, now both the heroes are shit, mid is alawys a trilane from both sides, safelane is anything but safe just tusk plus one every game ehh
>blizzdrone worldscon whatever shit
>heroes only gets 30k
>overwatch not even on top12
everyone someone posts a twitch screencap those games make me laugh
>Error: You must wait longer before deleting this post.
>do alch radiance + oc memebuild
>farm all game
>shit fuck there team because 6 slotted at 30 minutes
>team still complains and flames me in all chat
>feel bad for wining them the game
This game is shit desu
that's some bullshit actually. the delete function is like solely used to hide fuckups, having the timer there defeats the purpose and exposes many anons to unecessary feelings of shame
A fucking lina and omiknight dual stack bought rapiers and Lina demanded safelane when sven marked it first and when she didnt get it she went to my midlane I was winning and she messed up my lane but I still played a near perfect game and they bought rapiers for lols and afk jungled and shit pls giv (you)s
I am beyond mad. My hands are fucking trembling i am so fucking livid
SOLO QUEUEU FUCKING WHEN? WHY NO SOLO QUEUE? WHY THE FUCK NO FUCKIGN FUCKING FUCK SOL O QUEUEU?
threadswitching + quelling allows you to farm jungle so much better, also its 1 k cheaper and I needed to fight early with blink,
BoT wouldn't have let me farm that much anyways, too little mapcontroll and they had farmed wr with blink so I would would it would be too risky to go solo alone that often.
It looks pretty. It has lots of rng and WaCkY mOmEnTs!! A lot of people think it's fun. It's casually accessible.
>It's literally a fucking card game
Eh. So is Magic but tons of people still watch SCG and whatnot
guys i keep getting
>display driver stopped responding and has recovered
every few minutes when watching vods, and when i open vods / other video content.
It's literally every few seconds when playing dota, is my card FUCKED????
How is spec hard to micro? You don't have to micro illusions in haunt since they chase automatically, so all the micro you have to handle is Manta illusions, and if you can't handle that all I have to say to you is
game is so fast paced that some heroes can't even catch up
only hero that kinda got in is anti-mage
1.he farms while everyone is trying to push a fake advantage that will be memebacked either way
2.he provides his team initiation,good damage and mostly importantly fucks all those deathball heroes like undying and lesh
other than that the meta is very stale and games feel like bullet hell
No, I genuinely believe I didn't get outplayed this game. I refuse to believe it. I outplayed the enemy, dodged ganks all the time, farmed good and tried as hard as possible. [/spoiler]I don't know. I'm just really mad and want attention. I think I should've won.[/spoiler]
We took their tier 1s and 2s. It was almost all creep damage because I pushed alot.
don't worry, blizzard has their own "LE SECRET HIDDEN VIEWERS THAT NO ONE CAN SEE" every blizzcon.
also they will add all the numbers up as if it is a single stream, and then pretend this shit is good or something.
god, it's great being able to watch blizzard's ship keep sinking further and further every year.
Stop all that goyim, the game is actually intense now and fun to watch!
Your safe lane can't be safe because the viewers won't get to see much action, so we'll have level 2 rivaling ultimates so that the offlaner can bully 2-3 people!
And what fun would it be for the viewer if the advantage you played perfectly 20 minutes for was secured and not subject to being entirely taken away by a smoke gank and spells that go through any defensive item, so that you can be 100 to zeroed by a hero with one third your farm?
Now everyone gets to have fun, both you playing perfect for the first half of the game, then your opponent, and the viewer as well!
There's nothing wrong with healthy anon
Also what the fuck is that from?
Google isn't giving me anything
This reminds me of my 4.5k Razor today who wondered how he'll figure out which Spectre to drain damage from.
>"figuring out which Spectre is the real one to link will be problem"
Spectre got her Manta 20 minutes after that statement.
Fuck off feminist shills.
Fucking piece of shit keks. You disgust me much as those fucking pieces landwhales thinking they're hot shit.
Seriously, fat people should just be exterminated off the face of the earth.
It's pretty nice, dude.
I get to wear slim-fit jeans and style all over fucking fatsos.
Yeah fair enough. I did make some huge mistakes in the late game to be fair. I'm sorry. Thanks for calming me down a bit it means a lot I've never been this angry before it feels wrong and weird.
It's understandable. Sometimes it happens when you get really invested in this game. It might also be happening because of shit in your personal life but I'm not going to pretend to be Sigmund Freud here
You don't even know what anger is.
I've lost count on how many times my team has had something crazy like a 20-5 lead after early game, and then they just go full retard and feed the enemies memeback gold over and over again and we lose. I've lost count on how many times literally every lane except mine feeds. I've lost count on how many times I've been in autolost games where someone feeds the enemy carry from start to finish, not because they're doing it on purpose but because they're just fucking retarded trash. I've lost count on how many won games have offered no satisfaction because the enemies were so worthless that my team would've won it 4v5.
>any size is good, yes goy, keep consuming, eat more, drink more, spend more, yessss goy yesssssss, don't worry about it goy, yesssssssss, dont worry about it goy - you can have some operations and procedures later in life for a fair price, mmmm yesss good goy
how are you going to see the screen, anon?
I had awful issues with managing anger when I was a teenager so honestly I have no idea how I ever got good at dota1. It's just kind of an angry blur to me now
senpai i now the secret to mmr, i didnt want to share it because i know reddit would be outraged and it would get fixed
but theres not many people here today, no redditors right? right?
so there it goes
to not get retards on your team and avoid autoloss games all you have to do is:
reset your forced 50 bar with some unranked losses, before every ranked throw a unranked or two, go jungle midas octarine aghs every hero and enjoy your free mmr
this is how i got a 10 winning streak and how i lost like 5 games in my last 20
>but because they're just fucking retarded trash.
Yeah, but at least they are trying. Realise that they are trying their best, and that they are not just messing around. If they are trying then there is a chance of winning rather then if they are trolling or afk farming or feeding, where you will inadvertently lose and there is nothing you can do about it.
Don't worry anon, we'll make it.
>i think she is fat, but that is just my opinion on this non dota related topic in the dota 2 video games general thread.
>"FUCK OFF /V/ SHITTER GET OUT YOU ARE RUINING VIDEO GAMES"
the fact that you even know what it means to be a v shitter shows that you are more v than me
i dont even know what the fuck they do on that shit tier board
and so are you if you think otherwise
drink some fucking water and take a walk every now and then you filthy animal
what >>121531397 said
You might get angry because you're losing the game but it's important to step back and say "they didn't ask for a higher level player to be on their team and everyone was as bad as them at some point"
Post your idea of a sexy/healthy woman. Or just post 3 pornstars you like, because I need to gauge just how deluded you are
>Don't worry anon, we'll make it.
When I look at people while waiting for loaders, I see players who have played dota 2 for years. Many of them are outrageously bad compared to everyone else in the match or way better than the average. They've been playing for years and they're still stuck in this purgatory, the shitters never falling down to the trashcan where they belong and the better players never climbing out the trench.
Nobody is going to make it. The trench never ends because if you win the lottery multiple times in a row and climb out of it, you just realize the trench you climbed out of was in a bigger trench.
you just asked me for two different things
one tests what are my favorite porn stars which has nothing to do with weight
and the other is asking me to essentially tell you how phat i like my bitches
which do you want
tell you what il do a bit of both
first fat bitch pornstar that comes to mind that gets my dick diamonds - gianna michaels
>Nobody is going to make it. The trench never ends because if you win the lottery multiple times in a row and climb out of it, you just realize the trench you climbed out of was in a bigger trench.
the majority of the community for moba games is always dredge. the challenge is finding out how to dig out of each layer of dredge until you get to like 5-6k where only people who try get placed
>Heroes of the Dead Storm just announced a hero that can be played by TWO players at once
>Dota hasn't had a hero ported in nearly a year
>Dota hasnt had a new hero created in like 3 years
>Instead we got the fucking REBORN CLIENT, a shitpendium for the major, and "Craft all your shit items you paid for to make a slightly less shit item!", as well as opening chests for particle effects
Why doesnt valve care
Why are people alright with them treating us like shit
Your whole attitude to the game is just wrong in my opinion. If you truly believe you are going to make it you will. But you have to put in the maximum effort and realise that you will never have a 100% winrate, a 60% winrate alone is near impossible to get. Just try
can anyone name a dev that owns more dead games than blizzard?

Are you >>121531657 ?
because if you are then I want to say "Good taste, but how in the fuck can you like gianna michaels and unironically say that overwatch chick is a FAT SLOB?"
>thorin blowing akke and all swedekeks the fuck out
For every 70 minute dragged out shitfest I win, there's a 30 minute roflstomp because half of my team belongs in a bracket half of their current mmr.
I've had the most success playing omniknight because he's making it several times harder for your team to throw the game, and death prophet because you can win winnable games before your team has a chance to shove their heads up their asses. My most successful strategies literally revolve around not giving my team the chance to choke.
>Lard faggots and chubby chasers out in full force
Like, seriously literally consider killing urselves, you fucking disgusting fat vile waste of human beings.
can anyone name a dev that owns more dead games than valve?

Why am I being put on dire so often?
It's funny because I'm alt-tabbed playing RE4 right now.
I remember hating RE4 when it came out. Now l'm actually enjoying it, first I was wondering why and then I realized it's because RE5 & 6 exist, those two make RE4 look like a diamond.
End of blog.
hello, yes thats me
get rekt shitter
the overwatch slut is a FUCKING SLOB
gianna is a tigress
there is a difference to how bitches wear their weight - i also gave you the absolute fattest i am willing to go in terms of porn wankery, i could have easily said someone like miss alice and you would have tried to meme me
guys, this is very important. How do i get to 2k i need to know
>lowtest fuccboi counter strike team out in full force
What's wrong boy
dick can't even make it past the ass?
Who gives a fuck about hats, dude.
The game is a complete mess with bugs, memory leaks, fps issues, pathing issues, OS compatibility issues, hero balance, missing Source 1 client features, server stability issues and god knows fuck what.
Jesus fuck, man.
omniknight is actually amazing for carrying pubscrubs. having just a straight up heal (and one that does really good damage) means you can make bad decisions and still win major teamfights. his ult also guarantees raxxes
>will be less than 15k (or 10k for yuros) per person after taxes and cyborgmatt / etc's cut

hell of a honeypot lan
Oh shit, I started playing RE4 the other week because I never played it when it was big. It's actually so fucking good I'm really enjoying it.
I like how if you try to look up Ashley's skirt she takes notice of it

dead? yeah no and competitive is almost done
probably, no one cares about co-op, good luck to vermintide
just most played game on steam of course its dying lmao
>but muh reborn killed it
yeah it lost a few players the first month and now it's growing again
why should I give a shit about that? is it even released? I thought we were talking about games but looks like you couldn't force more examples with just games
nice try blizzdrone
time to crawl back under the bed and cry some more
how about valve killing one of the biggest pc ips by literally being too lazy to make fucking 2 hour long episodes after they promised they would make them
NO ONE cares about hl3 anymore, it literally became a meme that valve is shit and wont release it
thats right, valve being shit is such common knowledge its a meme
you want to say you will be years late with your shit and do it very poorly?
just say coming soon valve time and everyone will understand, LMAO
>it literally became a meme
that's the only thing that killed HL3
valve knows anything they do will disappoint people
specially with the current culture of complaining about everything all the time
I hope HL3 is never released for that exact same reason
>the overwatch slut is a FUCKING SLOB
>gianna is a tigress
Oh so i was being baited all along
gg well played faggot
reborn is a fucking mess
dota balance is a fucking mess
game have more hats than fucking everquest 1
100mb updates that bloat the client even more
looks like fucking failure to me
if you think those two are alike then you are fucking delusional mate
look at that fat fucking slob face
you realize gianna works out right? shes just a big bitch - the slob next to her doesn't even know what walking is
>thinks gi's tits are fake
Its fucking 2015, how can you still be this pleb
>reborn is a fucking mess
it was at the beginning, if you had played the game recently you would realize it's not the case anymore
>dota balance is a fucking mess
Are you even trying?
>game have more hats than fucking everquest 1
I'm trying to see how that's a problem. If at least you had complained about a lot of hats being shit I would have agreed.
>100mb updates that bloat the client even more
Do you know how updates work? It's not like you add 100mb to the file size, most of that size is replacing existing data, otherwise the game would be like 50 Gb or more and a fresh install is actually just 14Gb
Go on, if you keep trying I'm sure you will find at least one legit complain.
can you take your shit to reddit and stop spamming when there are discussions held by others (not redditors like you)
Yeah i saw in goog images when getting that pic that she lost a bit of weight but if you can honestly look at my shoop and still say some dumb shit like that then im 85 percent sure its a case of pretending to be retarded, 15% chance /fit/
why are you still replying to him?
i don't get why blizzdrone feel so left out and always have the need to shill other generals in order to stay relevant
DIABOLICAL ON STEAM

hey big bro what are you playing :)
can i join is it two players lol ill play on the numpad!
This is why you should be allowed to early abandon for no penalty.
There is a way:
Combine with muting terrible players to designate shitters and avoid terrible games. Note that if you're less than 4k, don't even bother with the muting part.
>People running away slowly dying from Drow instead of running at her and turning her into a creep
How fucking braindead at this game do you have to be to feed a Drow "Worst hero in the entire game" Ranger
no reborn is shit
there is literally no change to the game since reborn
yes they patched most of the shit but this doesn't change the fact that dota makes my 7870 heat like a mofo which wasn't the case before
>Are you even trying?
people that played the game since warcraft agree that the game is going to shit, i don't need your opinion on it
>Want to play doto
