>>265598921nice hero damage you fuckin noob lmao you suck
you will never get proyou will never be goodthe very moment you take a pause you'll get back to grind all the mmr you lostall those hours wasted on a skill you will never transfer
You now remember when people found out that Valve had assigned "Orange" and "Brown" (colors in the top bar) always to the lowest MMR player.
>>265599279orange man bad
what the fuck is happening right now, i can't find a fucking ranked gamebefore this i had absolutely no problem and my queues took 10 minutes max, but today i hit 40 minutes twice

>>265598878just blast off
>>265600612behind le scenes
how do we kill all tinker shits bros
>>265600794judging by those saggy titsthis is an incorrect answer
>>265598878>pick goblin nigger trio>play pos 5>put green bomb everywhere for vision instead of setting them at chokepoints>enemy just ward spots where scrubs usually just stack remote mines>they never sentries their own jungle and ward spots>free™ vision 24/7
why do people even think portal 3 is a possibility? the story ended, she left
>>265601220I just want to know what happen to the Borealis ship in Half Life.
>>265601220You can continue with the robots. People play Portal for glados anyway.
>>265601220It doesn't have to be chell
Dota 3 when?
>my carry smurf>5/12/5 slark midas shadow blade(divine 7)>enemy smurf>OD lvl 18 at 19m 21/1/3(immortal)>next game>same shitBoy, I sure do love playing this coin tossing! Boy do I LOVE playing forced 50% winrate bullshit! BASED GABE, BASED OG, BASED COMPENDIUM, WE DID IT REDDIT, I LOVE NEW MATCHMAKING SO MUCH! OH BOY THANKS FOR THE GOLD DEAR STRANGER!
>>265600807>>265601404Players thought a gun (Thompson) was better than another gun (MP40) just because it had different sounds and a different skin, even thought the guns were identical stats wise.This means that player feedback = feels over reals
>>265600874>push lane>ward the lane hill (tinker ward)>smoke and wait
>>265601758Is this some elaborate cherrypicking to justify valve dicksucking?
>>265601758yeah but what does this have to do with dota?
go make a new disasssteeeerrrthats what im counting oooon~
>>265601883>>265601943Point is, whenever a dotard says 'X' is wrong with the game, they're probably wrong
>>265599279that was 100% confirmed as hon but never with dota. it was only assumed with dota.
>>265602081that's not the point the video is making at all
>>265602160>never with dotaNigger people tested it fucking out and results were clear as fucking day light it was something like 99% of ranked matches where it applied.
god I want to git gud withtechiestiny pos4miranatinker
>>265600580>>265601050Pls no bully, I just like milfs.
>>265602081I think the only thing similar with that mp40 situation is the axe unleashed hat. You straight up want to start building carry right click items with it.
Is solo queue really disabled?
>>265602235ey nigger 99 aint 100
>>265602319too bad the image has a face that doesnt matter the body
>>265602424play a game and find out
>>265602235I'm not that other anon, but can you post the tests? I'm just curious, it's the first time I'm hearing about this color assigned mm
Color-theory is a bogus as region specific mm.
>>265602479You can find it if you search r/Dota2 I think. It got removed.
>>265602449Maybe, perhaps this one is more fitting.
>>265602721its even worse desuwhere the fuck is a wrinklewhere the fuck is a laugh line
>>265602462I played 2 today. I haven't encountered stacks unless Valve stopped distinguishing them in the post-game screen.
>>265602698hard passty anyway
>>265602887I could've dug it out from vg archives but they got deleted for no reason
>>265602858then it's not currently disabled
>>265598808i wanna erp with you
please help im in love with a hero
what if Dota 2 but it's good
>>265602813Milfs don't have to be all 50 year olds.>>265603113I don't do that.
>team has 7 deaths in less than 2 mins>Mid abandons after failing to secure kill when diving all the way to tier 3It's crazy how pubs are so fucking random in terms of skill lvl
>>265603385we call it random draft
>>265603426>>265603227ugly as sindefault phoenix is gorgeous
>>265603416please i love you
>>265603464Chi Long Qua exposed the MM system years agoValve puts trash pay pigs in the team with good players, and the average players that don't buy stuff in the team with the griefers
>>265603416>Milfs don't have to be all 50 year olds.with tits like that they do mr zoom
>turns wr into ench
>>265603606I unironically believe CLQ was upto something with his analysis of MM.
something is really fishy bros. including 2-3 unranked games i have won 18 in a row and forced 50 hasn't kicked in yet. what the hell is going on?
>>265603556u can do it with me
>>265603827Boy, you're not going to like the next days.
>>265603859fuck off youre not a hot aussie

>>265604173some new workshop entries
>>265603950>>265604180should i just spam unranked or tardbo for the next few days to tank the forced 50 losses?
>>265603827prepare your anus

>>265604635who is this why should i care
>>265604823its psg, aka the king of /d2g/
>>265604957>kingmore like the local laughingstock
>>265604635please stop trying to summon him
>>265605065peons often try and mock the royaltythey remain under thumb all the same
>>265605228well the top of his head does look like a giant thumb
Do you agree with him?https://youtu.be/NLDpaQJNySk
>>265604658msg me on twitter ;)
>>265605393still actually amazes me how badly valve fucked up with artifactThey couldn't have done worse if they tried
>>265605376Yes. Valve has incentive structure due to their profit model that isn't aligned to making a good (team) matchmaking.
>>265605376in my experience it's always the players with the most cosmetics that play the worst but i think that's just a symptom of being bad not an algorithm forcing it
just fucking DABBED on a smurfnigger tinker picker with my slark brosyou smurfed on the wrong neighborhood my friend
>hear about valve fucking over slacks tournamentHow can anyone hate valve? They are so incredibly based
bros vp is disbandinghttps://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sr0lnv
>>265605894I bet it's that nerd tinker picker blogging friend that got btfo by anons for being a tinker picker yesterday
kill all rubick niggersuseless piece of shitretards love rubick because "HOLY SHIT U CAN STEAL SPELLS????? THATS FUCKIN EPIC!!!"
show me your fucking custom hero grids please, I'm at work so I don't have mine
>>265606239I'd rather have Rubick than a Pudge. All Pudge is going to do is be an XP sapping piece of shit, sitting in trees and missing hooks for the first 5 minutes
>>265606239He's the only hard support I actually enjoy playing and telekinesis is OP
>>265606412>implying core pudge isn't the only viable counter to techies
>>265604428I would unironically start playing Kunkka if this was added
>>265606525Techies don't need a specific counter to be garbage.
how do i get her to be my gf?
>>265606518valve said fuck you to community tournaments (and that's a good thing)
>>265606242It really needs that "snap assist" feature
>enemy techies is constantly blasting off onto us, getting triple kills, puts red mines in the weirdest places killing us>our techies just sits in the jungle getting no exp at all and just shitting out lvl 1 mines everywhere
>>265603864That's some bloodborne shit.
>>265607065How do you have 2 of the same hero in one match?
>>265606093> Unfortunately, @virtuspro ‘s Artifact roster will be disbanded. This decision to disband the roster was taken following the current state of the discipline. There has been no news from Valve for the last six months. And it’s not the situation when “no news is good news.” Together with the team’s management, we continued to believe in a great future, but ... The future of the game does not come, and any optimism’s patience ends at some pointshartifcat BTFOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>265607206the best game ever made and if u dont agree then stop playing and FUCK OFF!!!!wtf everybody stopped playing and fucked off
>>265606525How so? Even Terrorblade is better. How does core pudge counter Techies?
mason is live :)
>>265606093>>265607206lmao someone actually made an artifact esports team? my fucking sides
>>265607206>hiring the Magic guy to make your card game when Magic Arena existslmao is Valve retarded? The dude setup shartifact for failure
>>265607609He contributed to dozens of games after MTG and they are all garbage.
>>265607721Lmao this Richard Garfield guy convinced the competition to pay him to ruin their games, truly a mastermind
playing carries with shit base damage or no laning capabilities is really fucking painful
>>265608260he's like an mmr assassin but for game devs
>>265608309It's not just painful it's game losing, if you lose the lanes you can't just go farm in the jungle like in old patches. You need to be fighting with your team in 20 minutes at the latest, good luck doing that if you lost the lane
what the fuck position is Venomancer, seriously?
>>265606202>btfomore like supporting the 0/17 apes you usually blog about but it's ok when it happens to someone else
>>265608743core 3, situational pick though because of how many dispels are in the game rn
https://youtu.be/9ihXq_WwiWM?t=69me when someone picks tinker and types out gg
>>265607721mtg is garbage tooreminder he made a card that's 1 mana draw 3 cards, 2 mana take an extra turn while also having a 3 mana 2/2 with no special abilities in alpha
JUST BUY BACK LMAO
>>265608743He can be equally dogshit in any of the 5 positions
>>265606202to be honest I keep seeing a lot of tinker who lose pretty hardofc their kda is "decent" but tinker is waay out of the meta it's stupid but also fair
>>265608837Hindsight is 20/20, no one knew how valuable card draw was.
>>265608813damn this guy's alpha as fuck
>enemy 3 picks balanar>your pos 1/2 pick morph and emberwhat was the big brain plan here
>>265608883>54% winrate hero in highest bracket is dogshitremember to never trust d2g
>>265609208>Look! he's viable in 2% of pub games
>>265609067crashing the game with no survivors
>>265609279here's how real dogshit heroes look like
>>265609279>MUH ARCHON PUBS
>>265609067does NS someow counter waternigger or ember?
>>265609454SF is still highly picked even though he is meh, if people only picked him when he counters all the enemy cores (what happens with Veno, Lycan, Visage...) he would also have about 50% winrate
Why is NA nothing but washed up shitters?
>>265609598force staff counters night stalkerhe's bad doom
>>265609598Long term AOE silence on a high MS hero, yes he counters them>>265609704nobody fucking buys force staff. Supports gotta get that midas and aghs
>>265609704howhe has max ms with phase boots
>>265609598He counters late game carries by being NS and ending the game fast but there's nothing special about those heroes in particular, anon is archon.
>>265609680cuz the average age of dota players in NA is probably like 28 and valve isn't doing anything to grow the game here
>>265609971>night stalker>ending games fastWhat? That hero wants to wait to fight half the game because the sun is hurting his eyes
>>265610075>archon insightstop posting
Is Universe planning to get back in the pro scene? He's been playing a fuckton of DotA lately.
>>265609971>heroes that get shitfucked by silence and often counter it with manta/euls>hurr how do they get countered by a hero with undispellable aoe silence
>>265610151Just don't poopy Stalker in my games
>>265610254force staff/bkb retardhe's doing you a favor by making you not waste money on m*nta
Reminder to pick Puck mid with blight stone and make the enemy miserable

You know your region is a joke when CCnC is rank 1.
>>265616471CCnC is good though.
what is the fucking point of majors when the best strategy is just skip them, save strats/energy for TI and win it like OG did
>>265616297>Ask the guy refusing to play his role nicely to play his role is derailingAnon, you're retarded

Media, influencers, and prominent figures in the esports industry had an opportunity to sample AFK during The International last month in Shanghai, where Team Secret held a press party at the Highline. Due to the extremely warm reception for AFK, we are now offering shipments not only to the Chinese market, but worldwide. Expect to see it at your local gaming hangouts soon!

What's the best build for lina mid, also how do I stop blowing my load to her
>>265619606Keep jerking off to her dotard, she's fucking hot
>>265619606get a euls almost always, aether is pretty nice if you need to land your stun on someone out of fog (make sure to get the cast range talent)aghs is pretty good as well. basically people play her as a spell caster now no one builds right click
Lads I become a full on gamer when I see or think anything Lanaya-related, the worst thing is I don't see anything wrong with it

Why was HoN able to mostly remove slow turn rates while dota is still stuck with them after all these years?Would Icefraud really be unable to balance melee/ranged without them?
>>265620283getting sloshed just feels gross and bitteri can't play dota when i'm drunk anyway since i prefer rum and the urge to play kunkka takes over
>>265617334its true that tops 10 are always the same person??
>>265620728Rum's good I appreciate your taste anon
>>265620283Personally, I dislike the buzz/floaty feeling specially if I'm playing vidya. I just drink lightly.
>>265620101>I don't get drunk.>>265620728>when i'm drunk...alchies lol
>>265620703There's 2 heroes in dota 2 with no turn rate on their attacks and they have proven impossible to balance, though Pangolier isn't so bad anymore. Valve have absolutely zero clue what they are doing and the only reason the game has lasted this long is because of their sheer apathy meaning they don't really do so much to the game. But when they do, they always- always - fuck it up.
when is medusa going to be more than just badGyro?
>>265620989That was someone else. I've been drunk before and that's why I don't get drunk anymore.

anyone else love valve just completely shitting on reddit with this midas mode power move?
>>265621717Valve changing from slowly letting dota die from a lack of support to actively killing it by ruining matchmaking, forcing memefight esports meta, making the competitive circuit worse AND ruining all non-Valve tournaments is pretty based in my opinion. Let this shit die instead of giving us any more false hope.
>>265610553reminded me of gundam wing
>>265621717Yes. Slacks was always garbage and seeing all these people SEETHE is just the cherry on top.
>>265621717>NA might get a tournament>let's schedule our qualifiers for one of our 10 EU/CIS tournaments on top of itnot surprised really
Rubickniggers are the worst kind of scum.You're not a carry, faggot, stop rushing your useless aghs you piece of shit.
remember when Solo said that he would gather players and talk with Valve after TI for muh rules and muh regulations when it comes to racism in pubs?me neitherfuck solo and fuck vp
>>265622310that sounds so fucking stupid are, Valve actually retarded?
>>265622817i'm pretty sure ceb is the one who said that he would do that, and solo is the one who was pissed about what ceb said. and ceb only said he would do that to distract the feeble minded and easily misled reddit hate train to get off his back.
is bloodseeker+tinker a good combo?just bloodrage the tinker who has aghs and lmao free attack speed

oh noI suck THAT much?
>>265624501what are you doing here

>>265624501notice how the player id is perfectly incrusted into the e and the g>>265624613learningbut it's the worst pentagon I ever haddamn that's what happened when you play for 3 years and never ever pick mid
>>265624373Unironically yes. Unless the enemy has an Axe, Bane or Invoker you'll automatically kill their entire team with the mere press of a button.
>>265624692but it's kinda a bad meta for him with heroes like shadow demon and elder titan as top picksactually is elder titan still a top pick?
What happened to Slacks? Did Valve cancel Midas mode or something?
>>265624501you see that tango?that gonna be your rank

>>265626378>midas meme modelmaomooncuck captain's draft tournament was better
>>265626378based, this game has been long overdue for death for years
>all of reddit is crying because the new DPC system is shit again >they'll all completely forget and go silent when the new patch or diretide comes outanyway when the fuck does valve even take input about this shit? they can only input changes once a year but presumably it's all settled around the time TI is done, it'd be much better if there was an actual break period they could take suggestions in from
>>265627257True, pros already dodge the first major anyway so
Secret, OG, EG, and Liquid should all play at Midas Mode to stick it to V*lve
guys who should I get for my team
Seems I'm simply not allowed to win if I touched ranked. Whatever man.
>>265628213no one wants a team with u, jubeiand brax or universe are the best from the list
>it's been a while>maybe I should play some unranked to get back in shape>what could go wron-I abandoned as soon as I saw the team tag. I'm not touching unranked ever again.
>>265629175Hahaha what the fuck this can't be real
1-3 dota4-6 poe7-9 kcd0 techies
>>265629759skyrim without dragons
>>265629175This is my usual unranked experience>what's that, you're up against a 4stack of immortals and everyone in the match is immortal or divine?>here have this GUARDIAN FIVE as one of your teammates in the stack in your teamThe matchmaking is shit straight ouf of gabe newells fucking asshole
>>265629759Skyrim but without the mods.
>>265629759skyrim but good
>>265629441it's every game of unranked if ur above 5k
>>265630247it's the game I wanted skyrim to be with billion immersion mods, it's easily the most well realized open world game I ever played and it has a next gen feel I never felt playing other crap
I recently changed roles back to mid and have lost a lot of games. Some of these games I play bad and we lose, other games we have intentional feeders and we lose and then the few games where I have good farm and seem to play well - we still lose. I don't know what's going on and I've lost 700 mmr in two weeks. Please help me.For example in this game as Kunkka I felt utterly useless against their team:https://www.dotabuff.com/matches/5014941169
>>265629175I had a very similar matchup, what kind of exploit are they abusing to get these absolute down syndrome tards against an immortal 5 stack?
I just can't play single player rpgs these days. I don't know why, part of me wants to but all I can get myself to play are competetive online games.Feels like a curse. I know there's a lot of people who feel similar about this, but I can't think of an explaination.
>>265630665unranked is just that lax especially with high rank 5stacks
>>265629441I wish>>265630227IndeedTime to fuck around in turbo to recover my goodgoy score
>>265630543Don't play if you care about mmr. Matchmaking pretty much can't get a single fair match anymore. Valve deliberately encourages unbalanced teams, smurfs and boosters to benefit the most out of ranked matchmaking.
>>265631101thisfocus on gitting gud and recalibrate after the season ends
>>265630813it's called getting old and realizing playing stupid RPGs for the nth time doesnt change anything in ur lifeonline competitive games are at least challenging and therefore, fun
pos 4 invoker every game DUDE JUST TORNADO AND WIN EVERY FIGHT
I'm obsessed by my global winrate
>>265631695sameonce I reach 50% win rate I go on to get a massive loss streak
>>265625239Valve heard a tournament is being ran in NA which is illegal, and they're really pissed about it so they put a qualifier on top of it
What if dota didn't have matchmaking and instead only used lobbies? Actually what if matchmaking never existed in any multiplayer game?
what if dota was only playable on LAN?
what if we could !votekick bad players out of games?

>get this on your team
>>265633619wtf did i just watch
>>265585406Euls every game my lad, it's the perfect item for ganking, escaping, teamfighting and sustaining mana. It also has a decently safe buildup so you can get it in fits and starts
>tfw play axe>tfw missing a shitload of culling blades>win anyway because call is balanced
>It's the lose no matter what you do loss streakEvery game the other 4 just start fighting among themselves. No one ever blames me, so I'm not fucking up, but I still lose rank all the same, so who even cares.
>>265635698anime girl doin anime things
>>265636081good axe is a gamebreaker
>>265636081dudeblack hole on a 10 sec cooldownalso +30 armor and no self-stunlmao

>>265636081>enemy axe feeds like a fucking idiot and goes 0-6 in lane>Doesn't matter, once he gets blink he's a better enigmaHaha
>>265636882a lot of heroes are "better other hero/worse other hero" right now cuz of ice fraud's bad balancing
>>265636882Literally what I did. I just kept the core and support in lane by diving, cutting the wave and fedding. Once their tier 1 fell I farmed jungle and lane until I got blink.
>>265636846balance is a stupid mememake all hearoes broken desu
>>265636846does it still work on bkb? if it does, remove italso BKBs need to get buffed in general, they become 5 seconds too fast.

>>265638325i already tried itand then i tried it againand then i tried it againand then i tried it againand they just keep breaking shitthe latest patch when everything finally seemed to be coming together, they just added an entirely brand new mechanic and it's totally broken. it's incredible.
>>265639161meme redditor hired by meme reddit company
What if there was a Sunder but for mana
what if you could use rupture on towers
>>265638325i honestly tried getting into it but i just can't, it's simply not a good game genrehonestly if every match took 10 minutes max it'd be a great quick way to spend your time while queueing or something, but it just takes too long and it doesn't have what it takes to keep your attention for all that time>inb4 zoomer attention span loldude i play normal dota since the chinese farmfest era, my attention span is definitely not the problem
What if you could False Promise the enemy and they would take double damage instead of double heal
>>265638325Where are the actual Underlords? Do they even know what they want to do with them?
What if you could use Mystic Snake to give mana to your allies
What if you could Cold Embrace enemies
What if Bane could enfeeble allies to give them attack speed and status resistance while lowering his own
dota but with full friendly fire enabled
What if AM had a level 10 talent that would allow him to give counterspell to his allies like lotus orb
>>265639697>>265639831>>265639975>>265640078very nice, i will implement those ideas next patch
what if enigma ult also stunned allies
what if boyz II men did the soundtrack to dota 3 and they changed their name to boyz III men
>>265640279You aren't ice frog, you are just a regular frog.
Alright I give up.Picking stuff like Visage is actually the only way to climb mid from 5k to 6k.Between smurfs and hardstuck tilters it's probably the worst bracket of all time.
>>265638325no tyauto chess is a bore
What if Visage aghs make creep waves spawn 2 gargoyles

why did Valve give up on Artifact bros?
>>265649220cuz all the people who lied to them and said the game was good to try to get jobs at valve couldn't keep up the act since they were hemorrhaging viewers on twitch and anybody who wasn't getting paid to play it wanted to play it cuz it's awful trash and there's so many flaws in the game that there's no way to fix it
wake me up next patch
>>265649220they'll probably revamp it completely and relaunch it like a hearthstone clone
>>265649220Valve doesn't have the employees or organizational structure to run Games as a Service. They got lucky with dota and do the bare minimum for the other games like tf2 and csgo
giant screen sized aoe's that go through bkb is the shitiest design possible
Holy fuck this item is amazing. I buy it almost every game now if i'm core. The amount of harass you're able to get off under tower. Being able to sabotage their last hits. +8 DMG. Never needing to buy a clarity again and being able to push so hard if ever they make a rotation or think of farming a camp.
>>265650686>>265650842playing against them rnit sucks
>>265651031hm, what if you could combine it with wraith band?
>>265651337over the line
ive won 8 games in a row so far with them are they the best pos4 in dota rn?
>>265651337yooo....what if....what if you could disassemble basi and combine the ring with quelling blade...
We need a new boot next patch
>>265651476What if you could carry a loli doll to spell crit your enemies with?

Why did pro inhouse leagues die? Last ones I remember being a thing were after Ti7
>>265654739Because pros are retarded and obsessed with pub MMR, they can't even organize pick-up games and instead cry that matchmaking takes forever.
>>265654739Their egos killed them. Scrims are probably the only thing they organize nowadays
>>265654505mireskatinyearthshaker>>265654607sorry i never watched much of his stuff
>>265651469If the enemy is braindead then yes
>>265625239Does she wears panties? Imagine the view
anyways im here to spread the good word about the best hero in the game, witch doctor. this dude has a targeted stun, an aoe heal and effectively TWO ULTIMATES. i dunno why i don't see him in every game, the hero is fucking broken. i have a 65% winrate with over 400 games on him in the ancient bracket
>>265654505pos 4 is just a support in denial thinking he will carry one day and slyly farms thinking no one is noticing how useless he is
>do dumb shit>instantly tries to blame the nearest teammatehttps://clips.twitch.tv/StrongBombasticBananaPipeHypewhy is borec so hateable
>>265625239pretty much yeah i think i'd rather watch that than quals but it's still a pretty big fuck you to anyone interested in running any non-dpc or fun tournament>>265655279i sure hope not
>>265656145wtf but that means anti mage would be able to see her p*ssy

>>265658860>blademailwrongi give you the rest though
>>265616109You fucking wot mate
>>265658778People thought Gyro was shit in pubs for a while until they finally started buying Aghs on him instead of rushing SNY like apes.
oh no dead game bros we got too cocky
imagine being such a beta orbiter that you sub to twitch whores to have any resemblance of contact with womenrofl, some of you guys are pathetic
>>265659165>couldn't even break 1 million
>>265659165>the russian translation is only barely lower than the english>some russians most likely watched in englishyep, it's dead
>>265660318it had more than 1 million, it doesnt count the portuguese, spanish and other minor languages streaming the finals.
>>265660950What do you want?
>>265660210who are you talking to?
>>265630543Thing is, you are not losing because you are bad at mid. You are losing because you changed from whatever role, position to mid. The matchmaking algo/AI needs time to adjust the matchmaking for you. Keep at it, and you'll get more balanced matches the more you play it.
>>265635817I like how blink allows you to blink - terror. I think I prolonged a game good while with it. Thanks for the late reply, I'll go Eul on #5 DW next time.
>>265654143the only entertaining dota videospossibly because i can relate to them so easilyeven his normal videos he did as 'reformed' were good

What do you think will be the Outlanders map changes? I'd really like Valve to do something with the vast forest areas in top left and bottom right. idk add a puddle there and make it have ancients or something
>>265662316to anyone that does that and visits d2g
>>265662909>braindead>borderline pay2win>overemphasis on mechanical skill>balanced around retards whining the loudest on forumsit'd be surprising if it wasn't
>>265662975i want two ancient camps in each forest BACK
>>265663064Wait there was two ancients in each forest? When? t. took a 3 year pause and came back in the Epicenter prior to TI 2019
what are some heroes?
>>265662975More emphasis on juking trails and ward spots.
>>265663104the map before this one had it
What heroes would add me up?
>>265663275So people just picked ancient ricers like Luna in that map?
Will there ever be a TI where Gyro, Ember, Wisp and Earthshaker aren't stupidly good?
>>265663443Will there ever be a TI which isn't played on dog shit patch?
>>265659165A lot of people who no longer or have never played Dota and still watch TI. I met some guy who was a self proclaimed huge OG fan and when I asked if he wanted to play some games (Dota players are sparse where I live) it turns out he has 50 fucking games total.
>>265662975ideally the stupid TPable shrines and jungle highground will be removed, or at least adjusted so farming your own side of the map has a purpose again, and there will be more than a few viable ward spotsof course at this point it's basically confirmed that memefight is now an official part of dota so expect that to be exacerbated
>>265663661> or at least adjusted so farming your own side of the map has a purpose againDisincentivizing invasion of enemy jungle, aggression and taking map control isn't a good idea. Sounds like wrong game for you.
>>265663629the only TI that wasn't played on a shit patch is ti6
>>2656636295-8 were pretty decent weren't they?
when is basher getting reworked to not be the most broken item in the game
>>265662975Shrine removed from the offlane.
>>265663930>only memefight should be viable i bet you think buybacks shouldn't be nerfed either
>>265664232So you want offlane basically abandoned/reserved for Axe creep cutting?
>>265663650dota truly is a spectator sport now
>>265664287Offlane is extremely hard to balance because lmao just heal at 5 minutes. Ideally it would justify buffing it.
>>265662529yes blink also enables a ton of options on hersome combination of blink+force+euls is my usual build on her, then aghs when you start getting close to 25 and mjol/mkb after that if the game's going longjust remember you are completely untargetable by single target spells during phase, even your own such as euls/force
>>265664232Only if they give back PMS and Iron Talon
>>265664676also glimmer, it's good on her because terrorize doesnt break it until you finish the castyou can use it to sneak in some good surprise fears or for some extra safety during bedlam, besides its usual applications

>>265667998I'm listening to audiobooks I had stacked and never found time to listen to.The game is requires no thought at all, it's just manual labor.So yeah, I think it's a decent break from dota. I'm not even playing for real, I'm just buying all the magic find items on the market and doing basic maps.

>>265672824you misspelled puck and sand king for arc warden and nature prophet

>>265672915you mispelled arc warden for lone druid
>>265673012orchid/nullifier you retard
>>265672824All of Tinker's good item interactions were systematically removed from the game: Necro, Manta, BKBBetween Autism Warden, Quota's Prophet, allah ackbar trio, and Smurfpo (and maybe even Broodmama) he doesn't offer anything better than those heroes. He can't high ground for the life of himself because he's a ranged creep against towers but is so level starved he can only be played mid and only as a solo. He runs out of items slots as an int hero and can be solo'd if caught by a position 5 CM. His "professional" winrate has never been above 43% in Dota 2's entire history even when he's been bugged to deal way more damage than intended. His power is gated by, and limited by, rearm. I think a total rework is the only thing that can make him not a literal farm vacuum burden on his team.

ratbros i got a question. i was playing as NP pos5 against a team of sniper jugg lion invoker and PA. my team was sucking dick very hard so i started ratting and took out all of their t1 and t2s. but i couldn't get a single t3 and it became harder and harder to even land a hit after each attempt. they would either all just stand together near the towers clearing creeps or go out as four and leave one guy at the base to stop me. my team was busy sucking dick so they couldn't do anything of course. in desperation i bought aghs and tried to spam treants at the towers but it all felt futile as they cleared them in one hit and continued coming at us. then lion caught me with a blink hex and my team threw at rosh and they won. how do i avoid situations like these?tldr: how do you rat when enemy team has lategame and just waits near the towers for you to show up
>>265674282you don'tI lost countless of games going 700gpm/10k tower damage as furionyou need a good draft and a decent team to play a rat nowor you'll just see your 4 retards going jungle because you ratted too fast and shrines are a mistake
>>265639535They literally can't move
>>265674281No country did because there was no money in it. NA Dota has been forever chained to dudebro nepotism where its mostly about who you know instead of how you play. Anytime NADota thought they had a promising pubstack, they'd lose their first tournament, then infight until disband and the ngo back to pubstomping.Bulba has for years been the literal epicenter of the nepotism vortex. The fact that the worst "pro" dota player of all time is still allowed near a dota team at all is proof that NADota will forever be content being trash.
>>265674421>he's not in the NA discordsloser
>>265674421calm down Korok
as a supp is it worth throwing yourself at the enemy to make sure your retarded carry gets to survive? at what point do you say "nope fuck you retard i'm not saving you anymore"
>>265674151calm down whiteBeard
>>265674421how was NAdota collectively feeling when eeegee won ti5
>>265674421t liquid fan
>>265673329You forgot TB
>>265674651it always is. you want to win the fucking game don't you or do you just want to feel right?
>>265675001>"3 ultimates guy" should be in this picwhat about no?
I can't stop winning with Lone Druid. Everyone was right, you just have to be good at the hero. Far harder to master than Meepo or Invoker
>>265675001but a farmed TB can 1v5 easily and have early impact
why are melee carries SO much fucking better than rangedthere surely must be a reason
>>265675365this isn't the reason but echosabre is so much better than hurricane pike
>>265675243>Far harder to master than Meepowhat the point thenthe time to master LD and road into ancient is longer than the time to master meepo and road into divine
>Venge aghs is bad-d2g
what if bkb was an aura item
>>265675545they should make this lifestealers aghs for rage
>>265675365>why are melee carries SO much fucking better than rangedSame answer as always: AbyssalAlso less farm reliant so you can have several melee cores while ranged cores crowd each other out
>>265675061even if the carry is 0/5 and only has two wraith bands at 30 minutes?
>account buying in a 16 game losing streak is placed in my team>barely knows what to do and picks jungling hard support>30 minutes gone to wastethanks gabendont even care about the mmr loss fuck this time wasting cunt

>Viper is on my team>Lose>On enemy team>WinSame shit with drow, these two heroes are cursed.
>>265676931thank tortedelini putting atos in the build for that
>>265675459Thinking hero mechanical mastery will get you more than a couple hundred MMR above where you are when what determines true gains are your understanding of macro movements around the map
Can anyone explain to me how exactly major qualifiers affect Slacks' Midas meme? He doesn't want to compete for viewers? He's contractually obliged to be a panelist for quals?
>Bulldog getting called out by random pub players
>Lycan aghs is ba-
>>265664129if you want lukewarm items, no damage all around and a three wheel bicycle, play league.
>>265677209Because teams often bootcamp before qualifiers at their teamhouses in their respective regions. No team of note would compete in a joke 'for fun' tourney at the cost of potentially hindering their chances of qualifying .

>>265664232shrines were a mistake
>>265677241I'd be pretty mad too if bulldog pissed away 25 of mmr for le ebin meme buildsTry that shit in unranked
>>265677304dude this is lower than lycan's normal winrate in divine and barely higher than his winrate overall (51.50%)yeah its bad
>wake up>drama over some garbage meme tourney hosted by slackslmao what's the problem this time? people actually like that dude? I thought it was all ironic
>>265677503no, not people. only redditors like yourself.
>>265677404he refuses to play unranked because "the games are too easy" and he refuses to play solo queue ranked because he "doesn't want to tryhard" so instead he plays with his megasubs and just throws every single game and treat the games like unranked. No wonder he only got like 50% of his viewers these days.
>behaviour score don't rig matches
>>265677503i probably wasn't going to watch it but some decent memes might have come out of it and i'll take any esports i can get at this pointwhat i find funny though is that valve are either so ignorant of the entire community who've been hyping up this meme tourney or they deliberately realised it would clash and said "ehh fuck it" despite it royally screwing over someone they've worked extensively with
>>265677632woah man i was a non believer but you totally converted me right now, this one single anecdotal example just destroyed valve's entire MM system
>>265677715>valveshill defending MM when it has been in its worst state everhi guardian
How can Bulldog still be rank 300 when he barely been playing ranked for the past year and every time he does he losses?
>>265677635they probably just don't give a fuck, leddit has raked them over the nonexistent coals of their impotent rage that at this point they just want to see them madI will literally roll on the floor if this completely fucks over moonduck and slacks, would be pretty kino
>>265676410>implying I'm not
>>265677503Man I wish leddit complained about something that actually matters. Like loli Pugna persona.
>He thought Scaled would counter LichLMAO

>>265678418What is he even trying to say?complete meaningless drivel
>>265678418>>265678510why do dotards to this? are they trying to gain goodboy points?
>>265678418>ruins dpc>has the gall to post this shit
>>265678418What's this @Dota2 team meeting?Who exactly is part of this meeting?
>>265678640its referring to valves team of dota 2 employees
>>265678640Read reddit posts and watch disney movies
>the final result of this drama is that annoying fuck slacks finally leaving the scene for goodB A S E D
i mean slacks is just screwing himself overjust take the L and give the money back to your sponsors, then you will keep on being invited to tournaments and get some easy moneyif he pushes this too hard im pretty sure valve's gonna drop him
>>265678884Slacks is smart mate. He know when to cut his losses. I bet it'll happen a week from now.He knows that drumming up the leddit outrage machine will literally not help him at all. In fact, it'll just make it even worse for his situation because the only thing leddit does is kick and scream and nothing else.

>>265679626I like my major but I like Dota more
>>265675449Echo Sabre really isn't. It's good on select few melee carries, Hurricane is good on almost every ranged carry.
yo dotards whats this?
> Ranked 15 in Europe> /d2g/ insists he is a bad player?
Echo Sabre x Dragon LanceWhile off cooldown, your next attack will have 400 extra range. When attacking, dash to the enemy you attack and apply the echosabre slow and attacks
>>265674282ratting only works to a point unless you go retarded build like bkb, two rapiers and two moonshards to take down rax and skedaddle. Nobody is stupid enough to let you afkpush T3 and autistically trying to do the same thing over and over regardless of tactical situation is an NPC behaviour. Your main goal with ratting should be to pressure your enemies, keep them on their toes and lock them in their base. Once all T2s are gone, you should ward their jungle and start farming it, punishing anyone who moves to contest that area. Also, your role should change from rat pusher to backstabber - teleport into a teamfight, flank their disabler/support or range carry and nuke them. If your team sucks, so be it, but enemies may just as well panic and will end up sandwiched between your treants and you and your teammates.tl;dr - seize control of the map by destroying allT2, pay attention to what's going on the map, don't afk push like a bot.
>>265680223ranking in this game is literally just a big grind. of course you have to be somewhat decent but even the best players need to spend 8/h day to get high MMR
>>265680328> i-it doesn't matter when player I dislike is high rank!11Absolute state of Kezu haters.
>queue as all roles>when I get support make it my job to grief the everloving dogshit out of the match without getting caughtI'm the real MMR assassin, I'm the Agent 47 of MMR assassins. Much like multiple mob bosses accidentally trip over the same railing to their deaths on the same day, so will pos 1/2/3 players mysteriously find disaster on my watch.
>>265680223hes a tier 1 player
just be better than every player in the server lol ;)))))

>>265680781Why play classic when normal one is better anyways?
Riddle me this /d2g/Is there anything worse than a 4 stack of Iranians on your team? Why are they even playing on western european servers

Bulldog losing his shit at russians, I smell some reddit drama!!
>>265680925Those are all good tricks but only applicable to 4. Picking mirana or cm and leaving all creep camps on your side of the map shitted up while fucking up ganks is pretty based though.Support mmr truely is a gift from Gaben because now I can pay my suffering forward to others without losing real mmr.
