I was the Centaur.
Should I have gone blink? I didn't go blink because
solo vs Clinkz, more or less impossible to farm except when bara ganked
they snowballed fast and hard having won every lane but mid, but could instagib Necro who fed his 4x killing spree to clinkz
team kept trying to initiate while I have vanguard and almost finished blademial
(rushed it so I could stay in lane, it worked, killed Clinkz twice with ganks and never died to him during laning stage, then went blademail because trying to initiate would just be suicidal only hope was to kill waves with return just under tier 3 with team to back me up if I got jumped on)
they take all tier 2's save top, get aegis, scatter and we get pickoffs cause I bought a shitton of wards after blademail again delaying blink

Then I went bots into Hood rather than get blink because by then Blood had Radiance and 3 invis anyways would make it hard to do anything but counter initiate. And with bara and spec around I had plenty of time to tp ult into stun.

yes, you should've gotten blink because you are the team's best initiator.

why was it impossible to farm v clinkz? control the lane with pulls and run towards him/stun him/skill return and he hurts himself as much as he hurts you. this lane shouldn'tve been a wash, it should've been about even.

Why isn't there just patch switching so that tournaments aren't affected by a new patch. This seems like it would be so simple to implement.

Methnerd
Methnerd

lets get a quick rundown to clear up all the retardation and invasion of redditors

VALVE TOS-valve retains all rights to dota games, even games that are in 3rd party tournaments, streaming dota games from ticket/dotaTV has always been allowed by valve, and studios/orgs have no right to shut those down, any dcma that they file is false/not-valid, however twitch still may ban/shut down unofficial streams of dota games if orgs ask them to, even though they shouldn't.

this has never been a problem until grant started getting more viewers for unofficial casts of qualifiers that studios like bts and moonduck paid for the rights to officially broadcast them. BTS and moonduck can't legally force grant to stop doing unofficial casts, however they still can "force" him to stop with the threat of no longer hiring him for LANs, making us stuck with whatever tier 12 caster the studios hired either for free or pennies on the dollar to cast and observe (i hear observer fees for non-lan dota games is as low as 5 dollars)

when this became a problem, some people (i.e. greedy jewish assholes like LD, sunsfan, trentpax, zyori) have intentionally muddled the water surrounding this issue by either outright lying or using very roundabout language on twitter/reddit/podcasts to imply that valve either changed TOS to give studios/orgs exclusive rights or that studios and orgs have always had exclusive rights (NEITHER OF WHICH IS TRUE)

people in the know but actually passionate about dota (IE GODZ) have repeadetly tried to correct all the misnformation circulating twitter/reddit/4chan by reassuring that it is still 100% legal to cast from the ticket./dotatv as long as you are not using any studio owned assets (i.e. their observers, their casters, or their overlay) but people are retarded and the loudest voices who are causing the most confusion are somehow the "respected" voices in the dota community (although I personally loathe LD/Sunsfan/zyori and I loathed them before this shitshow)

Ignoramus
Ignoramus

Why can't I fucking market all this shit already

@Methnerd
contd from previous post
BSJ (and other stream) received a 1 day ban from twitch today, because starladder reported them for unofficially streaming their games. While twitch is free to ban whoever they want, this is essentially a false DMCA/invalid reason to take down a stream, as what bsj was doing was 100% LEGAL. I am not sure of the recourse for this or even if there is any.

GOING FORWARD, this means that people like bsj and grant will be less willing/scared to do unofficial casts of tournament games, which is a shame because their streams are often superior in quality to the official streams of these games. Plus, even though i love grant, outside of NA TI Quals and kings cup, his "official" casts are garbage compared to his unofficial casts because he has to deal with a cocaster plus he has to sanitize his style to be sponsor-friendly and "professional" although i think its retarded that they tried to make dota casts "professional" in the first place. This whole situation really takes my hatred of BTS/moonduck to a whole other level. If the product they put out was good enough, they wouldn't have to resort to this shady shit (ESPECIALLY MOONDUCKS RECENT PODCAST WHICH WAS FILLED WITH INACCURACIES REGARDING VALVE TOS) in order to protect their bottom lines. I immensley enjoy grants unofficial casts (they are his best content IMO) and bsjs unofficial casts are meh but occasionally better than the official casts, and I will sorely miss them if they become rarer or disappear altogether due to this bullshit.

I know im biased, but grant streams are the main reason I still watch dota, and without them I will still watch dota, just probably a lot less of it than I do now.

TLDR, STREAMING/CASTING DOTA GAMES FROM TICKET/DOTATV IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN 100% LEGAL, FUCK BTS, FUCK MOONDUCK, FUCK TOURNEY ORGS, AND FUCK TWITCH.

I hope this long ass write-up is as accurate/helpful as possible

how to fix dota

remove punishment systems - no low prio, no reports, no vac for cheating
hard region lock - you cannot match with anyone more than 100 miles away from you
disable all chat features, total anonymity, no voice, not even pings
couriers can no longer be controlled except by using the buttons for delivering items if you have items on that courier, also couriers are made invincible
wards are free and have global cast range

Raving_Cute

@Firespawn
this is a perfect example of why valve needs to add anti-feeding mechanics and remove human interaction
shit like chat and pinging just shouldnt be allowed, when humans are allowed to interact they inevitably turn on eachother
@farquit
@Techpill
when couriers are invincible humans cant feed them to the other team
also, human flaws should be removed not cherished, you shouldnt settle for angry retards ruining the game, those retards should be disallowed from playing to begin with or the game should actively prevent them from damaging the team

anti feeding mechanics
players with particularly low behavior scores will have their actions (ie; mouse clicks) moderated by an ai
if it is possible that they will kill themselves through their actions the ai will redirect them and take control for up to 1 minute
particularly bad players will have their item choices controlled by the game and be teleported back to base at random to prevent feeding

New player, what I don't understand is that AoE abilities in this game seem too good? Fissure does almost as much damage as a normal single target nuke but it also does AoE damage and it also creates impassable terrain. Is it really worth that extra 40 damage to pick a single target nuker?

no, that's the misinformation I was clearing up.
1)the public (and 3rd party streamers like grant) dont see the contracts between valves and tourney orgs/studios, the only thing we have to go off of, is valves TOS, which HAS NOT CHANGED, and is explicit in its allowance of unofficial streams/casts through dotaTV

shitty dota personalities have implied that the contracts have changed, but if they had, then valve wouldve updated their TOS to reflect the changes in the contracts, this is all bullshit smokescreens and misdirections by greedy people in a new market (esports) where norms aren't established yet.
literally nothing has changed except people like grant are getting more viewers than official streams, and people like LD and sunsfans don't like that, so they are trying to do something about it.
it should be obvious nothing has changed because anybody is free to read Valve's current TOS and people like GODZ have been constantly reassuring us across multiple mediums that what grant/bsj were doing is still legal.

In a few hours we will reach 150 days since the last major dota update!
In that time dota has lost nearly 18% of its playerbase!

Ive been playing since 6.74 this is without a doubt the longest streak of no content the game has ever had. Even if they didnt have a single bit of work done on it at the end of ti7 and only had the reveal trailer done I cannot possibly see how they STILL have work to do on it even if they only had 2 full time people working on it. Its downright baffling that anything they could be doing would take this long. There HAS to be some huge unannounced features coming out because I cannot fathom why it would be taking this long.

Reduce base gold gain to 0. Remove runes.
Remove rubber banding. In fact, reverse it. Being behind in gold gives you less gold for each kill.
Make dying more expensive. You lose gold and experience, based on how many times you have died.
No AOE experience. You only get experience for last hits.
If one tries to blink outside the range, the hero doesn't move at all.
There, fixed the game. You can thank me later.

He's so fucking right, i remember before ranked was implemented, i said that ranked matchamaking was gonan kinda kill the dota 1 feel because instead of having fun with a hero and enjoy the game, everyone will want to win at all costs, doing shitterproof combos like, i dont know, dazzle huskar or picking the most popular mid hero.
I know, winning is fun, but what people can't understand this days is that you don't HAVE to pick this popular mid hero to win the game. Sure, picks matter, but if picks matter by 50%, comfortability and being good with the hero is the other 50%.

Back in dota 1 people just picked what they were good, had fun, and just felt like playing.

With competitive dota and ranked, the game became kinda boring, and sells the illusion that "if i pick necro even when im not good with him and dont understand the hero, i will win and if i lose, its my team's fault."

It's not even a matter of metagame. You don't make friends INSIDE of Dota anymore. Before solofag-queue, you used to queue up, play the game with your bunch of randoms. Maybe you and another dude or stack click and you guys have a fun time. You add each other and maybe play more. If its a real good time you keep stacking when you're in the mood and enjoying some good dotes with your new buds. You might even hop on a mumble/ts server together.

Now, you hop on that "standard" dota 2 experience of solo ranked, praying you don't get a bunch of retards. If your team is good/friendly, you type "ggwp" and queue up again. The social function that was part core game itself is gone.

Seems like he falls off a bit at midgame. I wasn't getting any kills because I'd do damage but just a little below the damage required, so a teammate always ended up getting the last hit.
And while I can usually slugfest easily with him, that ability seems to drop off as the game goes on and everyone starts getting their big items.
Feels like I'm doing it wrong.

You are supposed to jump on heroes you can kill, and if you can't initiate, then don't and look for opportunities. That's basic dota. You can't play lifestealer like you play, i don't know, viper who can take punishment for bad decisions.

@Skullbone
not the other poster but naix is unpickable without a vehicle. you need a puck/storm etc. his strength comes from instilling the fear that you may be inside of your initiator at any point and able to blow up any hero on their team within a second. there is no issue of the other team collapsing on you because you should always be taking out the biggest threat first to start the fight and then taking the rest of the fight at a body advantage.

I'm just trying to figure out what his specific angle is.
Using a hero as a vehicle, killing an important hero fast, and fight the rest. The hero's like sven in terms of that you have seconds of being strong as fuck but then you usually HAVE to back for a moment to regroup. Sven does this by blinking in, stunning, do the damage and go back otherwise he gets kited to death. lifestealer does this by infesting someone or just going in with Rage, kill someone during Open wounds, and then back until you have rage again (if you have too, of course)

@Supergrass
it IS true. you dont have to listen to me. Literally just ask any professional player or anyone at an mmr where people at least attempt to emulate high level play. The meta is nowhere near as cancerous as 6.83 but its just simply stale. You can hop on over to steamcharts to see how many people agree with me.
There is simply no other way to slice it other than valve being inefficient. It cannot possibly take multiple months of development to model, record the voice lines, and animate 2 heroes. Their pace of porting over heroes during beta is proof of this. The only things that could possibly explain why things are taking so long are:
Valve has a major development bottleneck
There are very few people actually working on dota
7.07 will be massive with gamechanging amounts of content (like more than 7.00 at this point)
I dont have very high hopes. Ive come to expect very little from valve ever since they stopped making videogames while being content with sleeping on sales cuts from steam

Dunno, don't play lifestealer too much. From what i've seen though is that lifestealer likes phase boots, armlet, and then whatever you need. Things like this are Mjolnir (if you need magic damage / aoe), Halberd (to deal with heavy right clickers), SNY (move speed/tankiness/damage), Desolator (if you need more physical damage), Abbysal (if you need lockdown)

Ok. I've watched a bit in the first two days and from what I can tell, the game is focused around taking small objectives and less hero kills.
The people watching the game literally cheer for anything which means you can save these hero kills to get an extra loud and extra special reaction from the fans.

You ask how is this fun?
It's fun for them, not for you.
It's like drinking light beer your entire life vs a good scotch, and when someone offers you a bottle of light beer you think it's just water.
Not that that's bad, it's a great design choice where you just break off little pieces to feed your audience instead of giving them them the whole cake since they're hooked either way.

i just stopped playing core in my 2k games and honestly it makes me way happier. I love making calls in game too so playing support also allows you to improve map awareness and macro shot calling. support forces you to know how to position correctly and know the distances of your item actives and your skills. It also helps that I dont have to think about farm all that much, and when i make a mistake i dont cost my team as much.
also there is something about staying in the back and constantly saving your carries with item actives that gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. whether it be using a force staff to push them away from a dangerous ult or using glimmer cape to allow my carry to get away , i know im already contributing.
all im saying is maybe you guys should give playing support a try

Artifact going anywhere
You saw what happened with Gwent, right?

Gwent actually had marketing behind it.

Artifact has Valve, a company notorious for not communicating unless shit completely hits the fan.

Compare what happened with TF2 and Overwatch. Valve could have pulled their head out of their ass and fixed TF2 by implementing changes literally the entire community was demanding for years, but they chose not to and fucked it up.

Valve is a bunch of hacks and the only reason Dota isn't completely dead is because Abdul "Pendragon's Nemesis" Ismail is carrying the dev team on his back.

If Dota had a proper marketing and PR team this game would have extinguished Legion of Lesbians years ago.

Valve is a shitty company and I'm 100% sure if Blizzard made Icefrog a better offer at the start the game would be in a much better position right now because their employees actually do something that at least vaguely resembles work.

It does feel weird how much effort Valve puts when creating something but then they just abandon it despite the fact that the infrastructure already exist, they simply lost interest, they even stated that the main reason they decided to create dota 2 was because at some point people in Valve spend more time playing dota than doing anything that could be called work.

Heart is bad because you have to be constantly in battle. And it does not heal when you take damage. Better take Skadi which tank you up, get you armor, damage and a BKB piercing slow.
Heart should give you more Strength to be honest.

Evilember
Evilember

@massdebater
Gwent had a massive launch and quickly died because Hearthstone was too dominant and the market is extremely saturated (Basically every AAA company and their grandmother has tried to take a shot at this market because it's a gold mine). This isn't including how Blizzard did the smart thing and immediately responded with a sale, a new expansion announcement, and a rework of card drop rates to be much more generous for new players.

At this point I don't think there's going to be any online CCG that will ever be able to contest Hearthstone, and the fact that Valve decided to fight this market shows they're complete idiots.

@Flameblow
Icefrog approached Blizzard but they gave him a really shitty offer so he refused it. Icefrog wanted full control over the project while Blizzard only offered him a place on a team of developers (because Blizzard had no way at the time to see that Icefrog actually wasn't an idiot that got lucky).

Going off what you just said, I think Artifact might be Valve's response to all the (((employees))) playing Hearthstone all day. God these guys are complete morons.

Nojokur

@iluvmen
Also "tank" heroes don't actually get Heart (there is actually no tank hero but you have tanky frontliner that do the initiation)
If I have to tank up I would get Guardian Greaves,Crimson Guard, Pipe. Tank me up and buff the team too. More EHP because of the heal, damage block, armor and magic resistance. Heart just gives you flat HP which can be burned through pretty quick with minus armor/crit.
I think Heart is only viable when you finish your core items. But you probably already end the game by that point.
Centaur is the only one that can use Heart well

I'm not a fan of how Valve does this at all, but I'm pretty sure Dota 2 would've been a shitshow from the start if we'd been stuck with Blizzard. Those guys haven't made a good game for a decade and they clearly have no idea how to make or run competetive games (they're way too focused on casuals).

That being said, I'm pretty sure Icefrog is the only reason Dota 2 has had any longevity. I bet Valve is great to work at but their products seriously suffer for their stupid policies.

I would also ad that Blizzard has no intention of hiding the fact that they are purposefully making shallow games to apease the casual players.

Just watch any streamer playing HS, they are literally playing in automatic, in 9 out of 10 cases there is a very obvious best move and the player makes basically no decisions in the game, also there are too many videos about pros winning (or losing) because RNG and Blizzard even said they want the game to be like that.

A Magic: The Gathering hand might also have a "best move" but the player has several options and the gameplay goes way beyond "card advantage +1".

Like I said, if Blizzard made Icefrog a better offer (which to him would have been complete design control), the game would be completely destroying the market right now.

We would have essentially had Dota as it is today but with a dev team that isn't a bunch of ghosts.

We would have had an actual marketing and PR team so Legion of Lesbians wouldn't have even had a chance to get a foothold. The devs would actually communicate and tell us what the fuck is going on behind the scenes. I know "it's on our radar" is a Blizzard meme but it's better than what Valve does which is NOTHING.

We would have actual policies on tournaments in place so the complete shitshow we're seeing now (between all the casting shit and "majors" with blatantly biased invites) wouldn't have happened.

@Techpill
Not to mention how they gave a literal greenlight to every single "VR" game that was submitted for several months, with no quality check whatsoever.

@Techpill
I'm not going to refute this because it's true, but it shows they're not a bunch of idiots. Making a "casual" game is basically the easiest way to maintain a constant influx of players. "Casual" players are more likely to spend money to bypass a timegate (i.e. buying loot boxes in Overwatch or packs in Hearthstone) whereas in Dota botting for item drops became a widespread problem (it's still a thing in both HS and Overwatch, but it's a very small percentage by comparison). Casual-oriented design is still idiotic in my opinion but it's not pointless.

What kind of logical disconnect do you need here? Blizzard has systematically (and quickly) ruined every single franchise they currently have including WoW, Sc2, Diablo, and HotS. They are currently in the process of doing much the same with OW.

Blizzard is literally carried by Hearthstone alone and even that looks like its on its way to imploding

RumChicken

@GoogleCat
The fact remains that Blizzard would never give creative control to anyone so this would never happen in our reality. And then they would proceed to fuck up the game and make it casual garbage to appeal to the unwashed masses.

Might as well speculate about an alternate reality where Valve handled things like a normal company.

Both of those games are currently the frontrunners of the market. I don't want to be a fucking Blizzdrone that defends them, as Blizzard has done a lot of retarded shit, and I agree they ran WoW and SC2 into the fucking ground (HOTS never took off and Diablo was a game I never expected to have a long lifespan).

My argument mostly relies on the complete fantasy of Icefrog having total control over the project though, which is something that Blizzard would have never offered. I agree if Icefrog took the deal as it was Dota would have just become HOTS, possibly even shittier.

The key difference here would have been that Blizzard acts like an actual fucking company, albeit a retarded one. Valve doesn't do anything at all and are being carried entirely by Icefrog.

I'm just mad because it constantly feels like Dota is a one-man project and if Icefrog had an actual team behind him this game wouldn't have a lot of the problems it currently does. I'm also mad because Valve let other amazing games die through a constant stream of braindead retarded decisions.
