THE DIRGE... GOES ON
The Tide.. MOVES
>>470088882From the Ghastly Eyrie I can see to the ends of the world, and from this vantage point I declare with utter certainty that this one is in the bag!
>>470089148But what if its homemade ketchup.
>>470088882Man I love Dirge. Huge AoE low cooldown strength steal is hilarious.
>>470089148Used to love this meme, still do. I miss old /d2g/ sometimes.
For me it's centaur
Like match, already dim and damp... your mind snuffs out.
dota died with reborn
I'VE SUNDERED THIS CABAL
There is no axe in team.
You HAVE completed your all heroes challenge right /v/?
>>470090504no shit, you have to die to be reborn
by my shaggy balls
>>470088882the [Dirge] goes on
Carl? That you?
I'm the Juggarnaut, Lich
>BACK WITH YOU, NIGGERS!how did valve get away with this
Played a few years ago, is it worth picking up if I suck and want to play by myself
>>470090446I hope Shota-voker has really good lines and voice.
YO INVOKERFFFUCK MAGIC
>>470088882I haven't played Dota in like 3 years, but God, I loved those games with Undying where he goes from hard support to hard raid boss, 1v5 diving the other team 15 minutes in.Then he finally dies at like 25 minutes, handing over a massive gold bounty that his team never quite recovers from, because he was the only thing going for them.
>>470091414favorite characters were Dazzle, Witch Doctor, and Ogre magi
>>470091684>>470091414It's a party game. I can't enjoy it solo. I wouldn't recommend unless you have friends to play with. t. Been playing since 2011
>>470089593From tip to tip my wings COVER THE SKY!
>>470091414>>470091684Turbo is a good time and is zero/low stress.
>>470088882Hey what's up guys Chi Long Qua here once again best dota 2 player this world's ever fucking seen
Remember when this fella was an unstoppable fuck machine? I do.
>>470092026I hate his current play style but I love his voice acting.. I am cornflicted.
>>470092026His astral imprisonment range is so fucking bad. I hate playing mid with him now.
>>470089148Is barbecue sauce on steak okay?
>>470091867>tfw CLQ tried being "reformed" and ruined everything great about his channel, even got rid of the voice changerim still mad
>>470092026OD is one of the heroes who deserved to get thrown into the permanent trash hole, fuck him and everything about him.>tfw naga has managed to claw her way out of the trash hole and is poised to begin her reign of terror once morethe seal is broken, and the ancient evil has awoken
>>470089593Literally the only hero I use those fucking things on.
>>470092706I would take 3 years of TI2 OD over a month of bullshit Naga any day. Fuck Naga that dumbass sexy fish skank.
Why is Nyx so shit? I feel like everyone is another power level above him.
>>470088882Reminder to quit playing DOTA. It's genuinely unhealthy for you and will just make you feel like shit years down the road if you keep at it. t. 8000 hours, immortal
>>470092026he still is he just plays like an actual ranged INT hero with weaknesses now instead of an insufferable lane bully that puts you in gay baby jail halfway across the map.
>>470090446CARL? IS THAT YOU?
>>470092471Without the griefing he's just a bog standard 5k player. Nothing special.
>>470092846He`s useful because his ult can disable passives
>>470091867>>470092471I miss when he was based lads
the other late night dota 2 thread was comfy
why can't I have games with people like you guys? why do I always have third worlders?
>>470091760>tfw no one I know plays it and I've been playing solo since 2012(4?)
>Jumps out of a random dood>attacks you for a little bit>Gets nuked when rage goes on cooldownWhy does he have the worst talents in the game?
>>470094924how do you know we're not a bunch of BRS too?
>>470088882I NEED... GUMMY VITAMINS. WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THEM IS THEY'RE CHEWY AND... THEY HAVE A BERRY TASTE. GUMMY WHICH ARE A LOT LIKE THE GUMMY WORMS YOU GET ON HALLOWEEN; THIS IS DIFFERENT THOUGH, IT'S HEALTHY
In your opinon, who's the next hero on the list for the Buffs?
Is dota still alive?
Imagine being white and from a first world country and actually playing Dota.
>>470095713Techies needs and deserves a well-earned buff.
>>470088882You know, I would like Dota more, but I am a sucker For gimmicks and Gimmick playstyles and sure all Dota heroes have their 'gimmick' but its basically the Difference between Fox and Wolf in Smash Bros, very few heroes actually have a viable Strategy to actually build around their gimmick and 90 percent of them feel like different Flavors of the exact same shit.Its why I loved Heroes of the Storm before Blizzard Murdered it, in that the characters gimmicks were actual a central part of them and you could individually had much more unique characters than any other Moba
>>470096441>Last buff he got was a straight +1 damage buff to his talentHow do you even buff techies?
>>470096070What, do you think people here are white?
who's excited for the hot mess that will be midas mode 2 https://youtu.be/91fKahHNgno
>>470096501Give back his old skills, the new ones are inferior.
>>470096070patrician choice desu
They killed his winrateThey killed his tiersBut worst of allThey fucked up his face
Who is worse off, Undying or Clinkz? Is it worse to be chained to the will of a death god and rot away eternally, or to be perpetually on fire?
>>470097464Both seem happy with it desu
>>470097464Undying isn't aware of it so he's fine. Clinkz on the other hand has to feel every moment of his death.
>>470097293They can't keep getting away with this.
>>470088882Haven't played in a while (like a 6 months - a year)How's my 3 mains doing currently?>Rubick>Crystal Maiden>Pugna
>>470097708>Undying isn't aware of it so he's fineI wouldn't be so sure. He has a rare line that he sometimes says upon meeting Death Prophet, asking her "Does it end, Death Prophet?", which would indicate that he yearns for the release of true death.
>Rubick/Chaos Knight's VA is dead>We'll never get dialogue updates to either of themCK's Sean Connery-like voice is so lacking in content. ;_;
>>470097464>everyone has tragic backstories like this>meanwhile BIGGUY4U is literally just an evil dick that's enjoying every moment, moreso of their sufferings and inflicting similar sufferingsMake way for the daddy
>>470097708>Undying isn't aware of it so he's fine>One of his death lines is "Finally..."I'm pretty sure he's aware.
I love the voice line effort Valve put in
>>470097871cm continues to get absurd buffs (she gets 20 armor when ulting now). I don't think puggles has been touched much in a while, and rubick is now a disable machine because null field got replaced with a passive that increases his spell amp and makes his disables last WAY longer. also now that every hero has an aghs, you can say his aghs has been buffed a lot since you're more likely to be able to get something good
my currrrrrrent flowssss
>>470092026>had the OD demihero figure>knocked it off my shelf and the stand broke offstill pissed
>>470097464Clinkz seems to have accepted his fate. Undying has several lines like "no heaven, no hell, only this"
>>470098018With Rubick, his voice had quite a lot of filtering on it so as long as they get someone who could approximate the original then we could get more voice lines out of him.But CK and PL are probably a lost cause since it seems like the filtering wasn't so heavy there.
Yonder I wander
>>470098050Nah, only a few heroes have tragic backstories like undying, clinkz, anti mage, timber(if you don't believe he's just insane and made up the attack),clockwerk, elder titan and phantom lancer
male heroes w/ the best voice acting>Razor>Timber>Invokerfemale heroes w/ the best voice acting>Winter Wyvern>Templar Assassin>Naga Sirensounds the same>Beastmaster>AM>Warlock
>>470098503+Storm on male+QoP on female+Necrophos on same sounding heroes
>>470098503All heroes have great voice acting except all the ones voiced by sam mowry(except clockwerk)
>>470098503tusk is best acting :-DDD and best hero :DDDD
>>470098615anon no the advertisers
>>470098503>>sounds the sameI remember the era when Slardar and NecroLYTE didn't have as much filtering on and they all sounded even more similar.Why did Sam Mowry only put effort into the Clockwerk voice?
>>470098626Clockwerk only gets a pass because they filtered Sam's voice so hard it actually becomes unique.
Winter Wyvern best waifu.She's a qt bookwyrm.
NEIA TEIA AN DA KA
>>470098018I fucking loved CKs voice but he's so shitty to play unless you snowball, old as shit roaming CK was fun to play though.
>>470098715remind me why they changed necrolyte to necropoz and winnrunner to winranger??is it blizzard reasons?
>>470098715>didn't have as much filteringBRING BACK DICK KICKEM ENIGMA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FO5ct3G4UIY
>>470098890best voice line.
>>470098851ABULLAH TALLAHBASHU NEBBAH
>>470098909I think so, it was just after or just before the Skeleton King change.Rest in Pieces, King of Bones...
>>470098715Remember when they changed the filter on necro but fucked up and slowed his voice to 10% speed instead of increasing it by 10%?
>>470092026I fucking despie the new E that they gave him, but against the right team you can literaly onslaugh auzsvich 2 on them
>>470095437>talent that gives you +4 rage duration>buys bkb >ez game
>>470096501Have you played the game in last year?Huge movement buff, huge mana regen buff, green mines are basically free, small buff to int.I also miss the days of the red mines stack but now he' s really strong
Is this an OG Dota 2 thread? I miss it so much bros. I hate nu-Dota with my entire being. Haven't touched it in years now.
Will TI 9 in China be another disaster?I just don't see chinks attending the event if their team gets eliminated
>>470099371Here's some more old shit I got saved.
How is Meepo these days?
>>470099371Dota 2 died with 7.0 and is only losing more and more players every day.
>>470099469Niche lastpick pubstomper like brood.
please vote for windranger arcana so she can get a remodel
>>4700929285k hours immortal here. Just don't take the game too seriously and play what you like. Don't let Ivan/HueHue bring your enjoyment down
>>470099516Not surprised, we all used to play back in the day and the only guy I still know who does is a whale that spends $2000 yearly on the game, or more. On an unrelated note, I also miss the days of Tastosis streams in SC2. God, simpler times... Almost everything has changed.
>>470099516It's actually back to 7.86 numbers for a few months now
>>470097871Pugna will always be situational sadly or if you're doubling down on push start.
>>470099708you know they're still casting sc2 AND they're back to casting brood war right?
>>470099712only reason it started to have more players was because of Auto chess. You can see how they are losing those players again.There were times when a third of the players that was in Dota 2 were playing Dota auto chess.
>*game X with millions of players still* died when *date when poster himself got bored of game*Why do people do this for every game? Fortnite, League, Dota, CS, CoD, you name it. They're all dead apparently
>>470099469>yfw you'll never fuck 5 of her at once
>>470099892Probably true, regular match waiting times are over one and a half minutes sometimes at EU west and east
>>470100367High ranked players can wait up to hours to find games at times.....
Dota is so dead even SingSing hast started to play LoL. Just wait and us lolchads also steal Gorgc from you guys.
>>470100461it's funny how there's only like 3 white(English speaking) Dota 2 streamers
>>470100572I never watch him but I always see he has liek 6k viewers.
>>470098503weird how the game's only been out a few years yet some of the heroes' VAs have since died. afaik none of these heroes have since had new lines added, right?
What's your favourite obscure part of lore?>Pudge ate Butch
HoN 2.0 when?
been playing since beta and never actively disliked a single change in the game until this most recent kotl retooling. he's still fun but my favorite hero in the game is now gone

>>470092471>not enjoying the mental breakdowns and seeing him slowly deteriorate mentally from playing dota 2 8 hours a day.
>>470100915Are we forgoting that bloodseeker must constantly kill people to prevent a massive genocide in his land?
I miss my fucking banana slug. It's been 6 years since they changed him.
>>470100915Io is the most powerfull being in existence
i can only have fun by doing gimmicky shit like sb/armlet/dagon terrorblade or playing a hero who can ks like zeus/necro/axe. everything else just isn't as fun

Undying has been one of my favorites for years. I remember when Soul Rip was only 25 mana - I would max that and Tombstone before Decay and just CLAP fuckers one after another.
>>470090193I laned against a particularly cocky undying last night. Unfortunately for him, I was a shadow demon and know damn well when strength stacks run out. Shadow poison is a bitch.
>>470092846Nyx is fucking amazing, unless you’re trying to play him likes it’s 2013 or something. I see you stupid fucks still trying to go Dagon.
>>470098503>Winter WyvernJust because you like the fact that she's climaxing every other line, doesn't mean that she has one of the best VA's.
>>470108692Brood's probably one of those girls who was always looking forward to having children.That's probably why Monkey King dumped her, he wouldn't be able to handle that commitment.
>>470099371It’s the same game it’s always been. I don’t get how people are so shocked when shit drifts from patch to patch, it’s literally always happened

>>470088882I suck ass as dirge and yet he is one of the only heroes I got a rampage with. I also had the most absolutely horrible 4 stack of Russians on my team that game. What an emotional roller coaster.
>>470089148>another ancient art i drew back in the day gets postedsweet
>>470119572have you improved as an artist anon? That's a pretty good doodle they posted.
>>470119635no. i came to understanding that i do not enjoy drawing whatsoever and only care about the result. so i gave 3d a try and have a way better time with it. still, sometimes i get sad because i wanted to be that cool concept artist or some shit, but i guess i'm just not that talented as i thought. it's okay though because i haven't invested that much time in 2d to be super salty about having a shit career because i'm a hack.
>>470118436They removed pounce damage. His only damaging skills anymore are dark pact and autoattack.
QUILLEDIn the line of duty
>>470120592>play Bristle>get ganked by 5 guys>walk out of there with 4 kills and 100 hpHe's too strong against noobs
>>470120468That’s because pounce is super fucking strong now, especially with the talent. It’s a nightmare.
I fucking love the voice acting and sounds in this gameDING DINGHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUAAAHSPLOOSH
>>470120380Don't worry, doing it as a career sucks anyway. Probably should just keep it as a hobby because as a commercial artist you get stepped all over and have to compete with people who don't care about that and overwork themselves.

>>470126753plus Pugna Nails the "im better than you" schtick better than invoker, and i can almost imagine Loli pugna throwing a tantrum as soon as something goes wrong
>>470127057Definitely! The combination of simple mechanics having to be executed in very specific ways to achieve great results make for a great Asuka-type character, second best girl of NGE only to Misato
>>470127057>no girl to wear such clothes for youAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>470113373new dota plays more like a typical moba rather than an action rtsIt puts way for emphasis on teamfights rather than general strategyIf I have to simplify old allowed more strategy and was more fun to playNu Dota doesn't but in turn is less annoying to watch in torunaments mostly since Chinese dota players don't just team all day anymore
>>470113373so it's not. it's way more hero brawler now and i don't like it.
>YWN have a sexy voice wyvern mommy GF
I haven’t really played the game in a couple years. If I were to hop back on, should I be concerned with how much the game mutated since then?How’s my favorite hero Weaver doing?
>>470129684What strategies are no longer viable in new dota?
>DADADA DA DA DA-DA-DA!
>>470130674Don’t bother, there’s always people arguing the patch they quit was the worst ever and nothing has changed since then. They’re probably about to say something like a year out of date, unless it’s some memepost about talents

>>470130834All I think about with him are Mars bars.
>>470131976Buy fucking aghanims and who the fuck needs nova with those late game wards.

I want to kidnap dark Willow and use her as a cocksleeve until she's broken and loves me
>>470131976he can't provide anything besides lots of magic damage and a meh slow. doesn't really matter how many times he gets buffed, he's still a shitty support due to his lack of utility and kind of a shitty core because of how hard he needs to commit to fights and how easily he is countered by bkb. he's basically a poor man's zeus
Does anyone have that one video where Invoker talks about building concentration camps and gasses Ezalor?God I've looked everywhere but I can't find it
>>470131976If I had to answer the question "who is the worst hero?" My answer would be venomancer. Completely worthless
>>470133796https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onkLFOKyhXQthat was super easy to findyour google fu is shit
>>470131976>>470133727That’s because you’re playing him wrong. If you’re a core, you get ahead and stay ahead through constant pressure. Either rotate for kills or set up a nest and never leave.If you’re a support, you need a partner. Yeah, lategame you’re not popping nova and expecting kills. You pop nova/gale when bkbs get low or to force early ones. Wards to cancel blinks and get vision. Setting up a good gale with the talent gives you a shitload of wards that can trap people. He’s not a kill hero, he’s an annoyance hero. Hide in trees, do not walk up to a group and nova them like a dumbass
PURE SKILL is the best hero.
>>470088882I remember a few years ago when undying was OP. He had been shit for so long everyone ignored him and I decided to randomly git gud with him for shits and giggles. Carried my shitter ass through many games before everyone else caught on.Comfy times bros.
>>470132438>should I email gabe and ask him to make her realyes pleasetell you what, make her an arcana and we will have double last years TI prize in no time
>>470133156You're playing him wrong, late game pretty much eeveyrone but invoker evolves into right click.
>>470134678K&Y is very strong on him. And Pike, since it gives you escape, stats, and easier to get sting on someone. Don’t buy into the Spirit Vessel meme. I know it seems good on paper, but god does it feel bad.
>>470134678Anon, that wasnt what the post was about at all
>>470098661>dusg:D fugging walrus kig
>>470134230>If you’re a core, you get ahead and stay ahead through constant pressure. Either rotate for kills or set up a nest and never leave.it isn't 2013 anymore when you could guarantee an early win by just smashing your opponent hard enough. even with comeback mechanics largely neutered, there's still a very high chance of your lead evaporating into nothingness, and now you have this shitty paper weight of a hero while you're heading into lategame. why bother picking this hero as a core when you could pick something like zeus (that can cope better with bkbs) or just pick something that doesn't give a fuck about BKBs in general.>If you’re a support, you need a partneryou're talking about this like winning your lane translates to winning the game somehow. even then, there are plenty of supports you can pick that can do something meaningful without any magical christmasland ifs and buts. the fuck is the point of picking venomancer and running headfirst into the enemy team to "pop their bkbs early" and dying when you can just pick lion and instantly disable the enemy carry for like 7 seconds while also doing like 1k damage to him before he can even turn on his bkb.being an "annoyance hero" isn't that useful when there are plenty of supports that straight up kill people or have actual utility beyond cancelling people's blinks sometimes
>>470134961Anyone have the brewmaster silencer pic where brew lost all his int?
>>470135054It’s the same general concept as AA for a support. You don’t disable reliably, bkb fucks you, but you have other ways of just fucking an enemy initiation or teamfight. I won’t argue there aren’t better alternatives, but it’s not completely untenable. As for core Veno, I’m not saying you smash them early and instawin. There has to be a real core to take over when you fall off, but that’s true of many, many heroes. When I talked about support Veno, I didn’t mean just a partner for the lane, I meant for the game. Someone you enable with vision and slows, like an Ursa. Alternatively, no matter your role, you shut down most melee cores once bkbs run low. I also specifically said not to walk into a group and nova, don’t know why you’re acting like I said that. You pop nova once a team fight breaks out to force early BKBs and you do this safely. Or, if your team can fight through the BKB timer, you wait then pop nova. He’s not a right clicking core and he’s not a nuking magic core. He’s somewhere in between, but definitely not useless. Regardless, I will agree he feels really, really bad when behind.>picking zeus unironically???
>>470135881>picking zeus unironicallyNot him but im divine and Zeus is one of my top heroes with around 70% winrate
>>470136081Things must change a tier above me, because every Zeus I’ve seen for months gets shit on
is now a good time to try getting into dota 2?
>>470136330first timer or coming back?either way it's a good time since TI is just around the corner
>>470136330For about a month before the TI hype dies down and you find yourself hating pubs like you always have and realizing none of your friends play the game anymore.
>>470112085Fucking rhasta players>shackled>go for sushi>still fucking shackled
>>470137308what happens when one of them dies?
>>470137616Depends what one of them dies from.They share some, but not all of their organs.
>>470137616Depens on how they die I guess. If their heart fails obviously they both die. But if one of their heads gets cut off the other one might live only with half their body paralyzed. I dont fucking know, I'm drunk, fuk you.
>>470137616Their flesh melts and becomes a cocoon that covers their entire body, while they undergo metamorphosis inside
