Why don't you play captains mode and autistically pick captain every match, /d2g/?
Why has CDEC been playing like trash lately? Things were looking up for them and they suddenly start losing to everyone and fail to take a LAN where they were the only remotely good team to even participate.
At least they have Mikasa now. I wonder what will happen to Newbee.
because all pick is more fun and takes less time to start up. That extra 4% isn't worth it for me.
The room was dark, the interior smelled only of the sweat of men. Black walked into the room labelled "DK training room" just after VG knocked DK out of The International 4, the sight he beheld could only be described as "miraculous".
What he found was rOtk and his favourite player, his idol, his senpai "BurNIng", BurNIng was crying and rOtk was consoling him whilst apologising, shrek told B-god that everything would be alright, that it doesn't need to end here, that the dota scene needs him around for another year.
However B-God couldn't take it anymore, the stress was too much. Dota is his life, and it needs to change, he leaned over by shreks side, wiped his eyes and said "You must carry the title of "B-God" now, you must lead your team to victory by slaying creeps and acquiring vast riches that no carry has seen before."
After saying this Burning fused his soul with the ogre, and the two became one, and so the legend lived on.
The door opened, the ogre reacted with superhuman speeds, the product of his fusion with the dota god. Standing there was Iceiceice, he knew what had happened and he pleaded that the ogre join him, so that together they could live out BurNIng's dream as he could no longer do it himself.
I don't think the average dota2 player even knows what roaming means.
That sounds pretty legit, maxing illusions then stats, would increasing farming rate by a lot. Assuming you don't max that shitty slow before metamorph as well.
Hey son, are ya winnin' ya games?
Din dins will be ready in 10 minutes
Most people know how to roam or at the very least know what it is. I just know I'm smarter than the average bear because as someone with a good stun I usually buy smoke at the start.
over a long CD, and the transfer isn't a full 20/40/60/80 damage, it's just a percentage of that, sure it's base damage, but it's not significant to illusions when you can only have 3 up at most. Once you have manta, then sure max metamorph comes into play with a larger impact, but prior to that farming faster with illusions is better than searching for kills.
Yeah, because solo pushing always ends up great. When I play TB, I show myself in lane and infront of a tower while I am at it, if I am not dead within the next 10 seconds, the enemy team doesn't deserve to win.
you're assuming I'll go this build every TB game I play. If the situation calls for me to farm for the first 20 minutes, I'll go this build. If I have to fight in between the first 20 mins, before getting my skaddi or manta, I'll get max metamorph. Jesus, is everyone set in absolutes for everyone criticizing the build? Look at what it's good for and don't think you'll be going that build every single game.
>live in florida
>getting near bottom of NA leaderboards
>my games are split between US servers and EU west
>want to make sure I'm on US because I can actually get on those leaderboards
>on 20 game win streak on EUW
what do i do
Are you guys still on about that? I prefer stats over metamorph most games as metamorph doesn't get used much against decent teams with AoE.
I also apparently didn't know that the bonus damage was base damage that illusions could use, I'm bad.
because he's retarded good against melee, which they had 4 of in that game
and it secures the fact that late game will actually happen because no one can push high ground against a techos
I agree with the both of you, but
fuck off you tripfag scum no one cares, filtered and reported.
Reminder to listen to based Tyrone.
Seriously? No one said anything about skipping metamorph, just not maxing it before stats. Changing to a ranged form is pretty good at some points, who would skip such a valuable skill? I am arguing that the extra damage from leveling the skill up is not worth it when you have to out farm the enemy carry.
That's all fine late game, early game there's no way any decent team is going to let you just kill their towers with your 500 HP 2 hit kill illusions, stats are even more important now with the increased illusion damage.
What's wrong with the occasional trip for identification purposes?
I never said that you argued for skipping it. But not maxing it before stats is retarded like no bear lone druid. Theres a reason why every top build on dotabuff(and builds that pros use) have meta maxed by 7.
>team composition is a mess
>lanes are a mess
>early game is a mess
>team is arguing with eachother
>everyone is giving up hope
>I hit r
>win the team fight easily despite losing the entire first 25 minutes
Which hero did I just play?
reminder that tripfags actually think there is actually a situation where leveling stats over meta exists
There's a reason d2g is tripfag free, it's because your shame will never be forgotten
That's literally because everyone follows guides, and pro's literally play a different game than what we play in pubs. If you don't see why it's important to innovate than I understand that you're not better than the average dota2 player at all. Also no bear lone druid is a fucking joke build, no one takes that shit seriously.
P.s DP's most built item was bloodstone for a very long time. Do you know why? It's because it was the top build on dotabuff.
>that feel when all my games are only "normal skill" and I'm not good enough to drag myself out of the trench into even "high" skill.
>pressuring t3's at 16 minutes
>lose 44 minutes later because youre a fucking knuckledragger was playing carry and only farmed 100 creeps in that entire time
The answer is obviously the #1 hero at the moment, as proven by literal statistics, OMNIKNIGHT
If you could not associate him with my Omni, that would be lovely.
The most fun I've had in the last 20 days playing dota was a game where I lost horribly with my allies being 2/24 or so, with a Russian guy playing silencer mid, going Aghs Refresher after boots with no mobility or anything and just pulling his double ulti for the damage whenever off cooldown.
The best part is he was cursing at the other russians through the mic the entire game, in a hilariously angry tone.
Is this the only way to enjoy dota?
When maxing metamorph over illusions, you can't send your illusions every now and then to the jungle to farm camps at around 10 minutes, rather you sit in lane farming for 10 minutes until you hit level 10 with max illusions and hopefully an yasha, then you send illusions to clear camps. But if you max stats before maxing metamorph, you can literally start sending illusions to clear camps before getting a full yasha completed (after treads ofc). If people value getting t1s a minute or two faster than having more farm, than just lol.
you also farm with illusions you fucking retard.
If you actually believe 80+ damage is going to get you any kills or let you farm faster, than you're literally never played TB vs. players that know what TB is.
>if you don't see why its important to innovate
Hey guys, im gonna skip webs on brood because im innovating!
>no bear lone druid is a fucking joke build, no one takes that shit seriously
Now you know how people feel about your build
When theres overlap between what the pros are all doing, and what all guides are saying to do, then maybe you need to reconsider whether you're in the right.
Yeah thats not a big issue. I personally can't see many times where Illusions get maxed at 7 but the difference in builds is so small that it can be attributed to preference. But then there's retarded tripfags who don't have meta maxed and go for stats.
>Back in WC3 DOTA 13 years ago when he still had drain life and shit stats was preferred on terror blade.
That would have been like 4 Terrorblade versions ago.
Zeal terrorblade had one good ability. You'd dump everything else in stats.
>if you think 80+ damage on you and your illusions will farm faster, you've never played TB
>who will never win anything memorable
That doesn't make him wrong either. Burning never won TI. Is he suddenly wrong now? You're fucking retarded. Meracle has like an 83% winrate over like 120 games with terrorblade, he knows what he's doing.
lol ur assuming metamorph lasts for the entire game, and that you'll be using it whenever it's off cd just to farm, this has to be bait. You can't be this retarded.
Also have fun at level 8 when illusions get 3 shot by any jungle camp.
Okay so what is a TB with stats gonna do what a TB with max Meta cant do. If you have max Meta you can force the enemy team into bad trades from the 10 minute mark because for every teamfight they take you can take at least one tower. Why the fuck am I sharing a website with players as bad as this.
it works on anyone they said
I am not wrong, am I?
and yeah I am a 4k shitter who thinks he actually knows the game :^D
You are so trash it's not even funny.
Ember has no way to push if your allies are retarded. Invoker is trash at all levels of play. Tiny gets fucked in a thousand ways. Viper is literally win lane lose game. Lycan get shut down too easy when against opponents that know what a tp is apart from a way to get back to a lane after respawn.
MEEPO ON THE SECOND TIER WHILE BEING THE BEST HERO TO OVERTAKE A GAME WITH.
SLARK TIER 3 LOL.
Fucking retarded piece of shit, fuck your russian whore of a mother.
I think whether or not you farm faster with stats is irrelevant unless you're just jungling the whole game or something. Meta is just way more useful for getting kills in your lane and pushing the tower.
I'm brand new to the game and invokers carry every single game I've seen one in. I've never seen an invoker do bad, and whoever has an invoker wins.
So no, he isn't bad at all levels of play.
Just because invoker stomped in your low level pubs doesn't mean he's good for that level of pub. It just means that the players on the other team were super shit. Chen is absolutely horrible for low level games, and a chen going godlike and having a score of 18-2-31 or whatever doesn't make him good at that level.
If you're new to the game then you'll probably see a lot of smurfs, smurfs often play higher skill cap heroes like invoker or shadowfiend too stomp and feel good about stomping so I really wouldn't look too hard into it.
