Frankly, I'm embarrassed for Valve. They make hundred of millions a year from this game and they can't make a functioning app for the pro circuit. Riot would do better, honestly.
Dota players giving something a good review? HAHAHAHAHAHA

Good to hear, keep enjoying the game, it only gets better with time :D
Enjoy, who are your favorite heroes so far? Least favorite?
Woohoo! Alive gaem!
Remember to mute overly hostile teammates BEFORE tilting. This tip will gain you a thousand mmr ez.
!remindme 1 week
Just curious, what made you get into the game? Did you start alone or did you start with friends?
Nice try Valve
Get out while you can
Lol. Like 6 yrs in this game as much as possible. Still calibrated lower. Fml
I remember I loved playing Lina too when I started in WC3 Dota years ago! My first hero
OP feel free to message me if you need someone to coach or teach you the game. Ancient 1 here so I have at least a few tips to help you out hopefully lol
Try Wraith King.
well done buddy. keep at it
Glad to hear that, bro. Keep on it!
New player and a weeb? Pog, let me know if you ever have questions or need help.
That's pretty good I have 3000 hours in the game and have a 1700 mmr but I seldom play ranked and if I do I play offlane
welcome! feel free to reach out if you need help!
I calibrated at 1k eventho I've been playing from 2013...
...but this month I've been climbing 500+ MMR and the streak just doesn't stop
Is it normal if i cry seeing this post?I love this game.
anime avatar nice
did you play other similiar games or RTS before DOTA? how did you learn how to play?
Enjoy the wild ride.
Nice one, welcome aboard
No worries, this game has been "dying" for 15 years
Nice try Gaben we're onto your lies
How did you start playing Dota 2? Did you get introduced to by friend or you are an ex lol player?
Good job! keep on going
What server do you play in?
so you made a new account? weird for a new player to bring up that the game doesnt have new players.
Bet he’s a smurf
Nice try DotA 2 development
nice try Gaben
gtfo smurf krappa
6000 play time
How did u manage to get 1500 mmr i got 400 mmr when calibrated for first time
real question: why not LoL?
My first account calibrated at 300 MMR lol
Let me guess you from neatherlands|AmsterdamThe name is from a Coffeeshop which I really enjoyed :)
May god have mercy on your soul
Few Qs. Would you say your background in League helped? If you were completely new to Mobas, how do you think you would have placed? What's your account level? Are you ever aware of smurfs or do you not concern yourself, ie. Its a guy just having a good game.
I consider anyone playing at my level, which is only mid-legend (3.5k mmr) on a low level account (20-30s) to be a smurf if they perform incredibly well relative to other people on my bracket.
What do you think?
Not bad scores in any of the games either. Good to know at least some new players have a sense of teamwork
Thats' so great to see, if you're interested in learning more about the game feel free to shoot me a dm for some advice or to answer any questions!
Incredible that the community is so desperate to believe that new players are coming that reddit will literally upvote every single guy like you they can get their hands on
Dont worry. You will be smashing the monitor soon enough
Idk what are you proud of, mm is dead
... I'm not new at all and I'm at a consistent 700 MMR. Time to die
Welcome to the best game you'll never be able to put down.
previously it said "slow queue", now valve silently changed it to "queue normally"
Why do u enter fasst q as a 5 man stack? to make you feel better? cant you only match against 5 mans which means its the same no matter what?
Mine is still saying "file d'attente lente"(in french) which means "slow queue".
Tbh this seemed like such a small thing to complain about.
Wow. Haven't played in a while but this seems like a very creative and well thought solution!
I'm actually losing it, I just fast queued and it popped in 10 seconds for all roles selected and I got mid
As someone who hasn't been watching the tournament: what?
this treasure is clearly directed at chinese buyers who aren't allowed to use community market
Lol I thought no one was going to say it
Ah, the legendary Legion Mage, close friend of Seer Mage and Phoenix Mage.
Read the complete name of the set in the treasure. It differs with 1 word!
Timber set is worth getting, used to be can’t be gifted or traded
How is this shady business tactics? If people want to buy the treasure they do, if they want to buy from market they do. What's up with the pitchforks?
This is just the most extreme example since it is the rarest item in the treasure, but the vast majority of the other sets are also below half of the treasure cost itself.
Be aware of what you're paying for, don't let Valve get away with scamming people.
EDIT: The vast majority of people don't seem to realise, this isn't the price of the item after the treasure released.
This item was this price for years on the market before this treasure, hence why it's ridiculous to market it as 'extremely rare'.
No one is forcing you to buy it.
Thought it's because its a garbage item that occupies a slot already taken by immortals
I was so sour when i saw the treasure , like “ hey hat addicts, i need 24$ thanks “ -valve
treasure of the cringe
Who is she?
Sensing british vibes
u/spieler_42 it's always cm :D
Unpopular beleif: POS 5 do better with gold than without.
Ice is nice!
She looks a bit like Morena Baccarin
Didn't even need to open this post to know there was going to be somebody trying to start some stupid discussion about dae akshually sometime supp need gold????
My support doesn't brush his teeth
"Secured, you're welcome"
You're playing with SingSing too much.
Lol that's crazy. How do you play her? What bracket?
Serious question, how tf do you lane against this hero as a melee core?
There is a little group of really annoying ranged heroes like her that just destroy me--Mirana, Ench, WR, and now pos4 Lina. They right click me all day from range and if I try to approach they run away (maybe with the help of their escape spell), then and come back to constant harass.
I goddamn hate pos 4 miranas in the enemy team, smoke, good arrows, builds greaves euls and pipe. Good use of ulti. Every other game
this hero is fucking cancer this patch
makes pos 5 heroes life a fucking nightmare
arrow needs to be backed down to like 800 ms
i hope this hero gets banished forever, i haven't hated a hero so much in a while.
Singsing is that u
Rare flair D:
Tips on laning pls
Ward tax .hero
Pos 4? Do you start with tangos/basi? Do you typically roam or stay with your offlane?
I ruined it PepeHands :(
Incoming nerf to darkseer
LOL that pic though. She looks like she's having an orgasm.
But yeah she is strong this patch. Especially if you're a map hacking Russian.
wish potm core was any good, but IF's gonna destroy the hero soon
DaZzzzzzZlleeee ee. E e e e e e e e e e
This is disgusting lol
best still image.
Reverting arrow to not instantly kill creeps would be an interesting balance change but it might just end up killing the hero if she can't freely secure any ranged hero, catapult, or big jungle creep.
Or just make the scaling on arrow less crazy. It already got damage nerfed at close range, but having a 5 second stun with a level 1 skill is absurd when there are so many ways to set it up and it only requires 1500 range to hit max stun (and only taking ~1.7 seconds for the arrow to fly that far, making it way too easy to set up with basically any stun). If the cast range is 3000 then max stun should be at 3000 range not 1500.
Did the recent nerfs not hurt her much? One of my buddies plays Mirana quite a bit and he's always complaining about her base damage.
Edit: Jesus, I was just asking if the recent nerfs had any noticeable impact. Didn't say anything about losing games. Hell, I don't even play the hero, just genuinely curious.
23 streak is impressive, actually I have 75% winrate with this hero
A gift from the night.
Dood I'm banning mirana in unranked too, even IF the player's crap it's just too gd annoying to play against
Yea, looks about normal.
Source:I'm a techies picker
I beat a guy once then the next day he added me and started spamming in my steam dms he would kill me and he kept spamming my address and personal details. I guess i shouldve taken the situation more seriously but i didnt cos i figured someone going to those lengths over a single dota match they likely wont leave the house
For a techies player it is not death threats, it is a motivational speech.
That's a report.
Look at the bright side. I am sure the report system works fine and he would never falsely report you just for picking techies. - r/DotA2
You know what, some people really need to take a break from dota or quit completely. This naix especially. He needs help
what’s funny is that naix is actually pretty good against techies lmao
Yes, but that’s the reason why you pick techies
Yes.I got chat banned for playing techies 5time in a row.Because enemy team is reporting me.
And then he reports you for Comms Abuse
The funny part is that when you bring this to reddit they still blame you for your hero, sometimes completely disregarding the other player's toxicity.
"Oh a death threat? Well you picked Techies" and the like.
And reality is that you are the one that is gonna get reported for playing a hero that is part of the game. While the dude that threatened to torture you to death will continue to enjoy his 10k Behavior Score life. Thats how Dota manages toxicity.
PLEASE tell me you hit him with the "?"
How do you cut someone with a needle ?
my question is, how bad do you have to be as a lifestealer to be this mad at a techies
Random russian swearing in the middle. Completes the picture.
I dont mind techies most of the time,but every "just one last game before sleep cause i need to get up early tommorow" = techies turtling for 2 hours
Pretty average response.
That's some Autismo level cringe. The kind of kid that would hold scissors right next to you in elementary school just to watch you feel threatened.
Still would be nice to censor his name you bellend.
You know you’re playing techies right when the enemy flames you don’t worry
Hey. Just remember my man. For every idiot that hates on you for picking Techies and for every redditor justifying that hate, there's a fellow Techies picker who wants nothing but to see you have fun blowing up entitled carry players.
Here's to more explosions my friend.
Of course there is a Pudge in the game...
Unusual? No. Acceptable? Also no.
Yeah, pretty much normal. Guessing this dude is still pretty young, either literally or just mentally. Some real mid-teens edgelord thought process that has to be going on to be writing some dumb shit like that and thinking anyone's not just laughing at him.
That is a person who needs help. Bitching about techies pick as a naix. is definitely beyond stupid
I hate Techies as much as any other human being with a soul and sense of morality, but this is too much
Looks like my pub safelane when I take a camp
Unfortunately it's normal
Yea pretty much
What a sad little man
dont get people like this tbh
i never rage at a specific hero picker,but i hate player that cant even play the hero they pick semi competently
injoker and stupid lone druid comes to mind
Worst thing that's happened to me in terms of communications was somebody going off on a pretentious 15-minute tirade about whether a bunch of "giggling dudes laying bombs is [my] idea of a 'hero'". Sure, there is the occasional person choosing to throw or otherwise ruin the game because I picked Techies, but at maybe one in 30 games, this seems in line with the baseline rate of game ruiners in Ranked anyway, so maybe those people are just using Techies as a convenient pretext.
Capital G Gamer
Pretty standard yeah.
Naix just roleplaying his hero.
Honestly you deserve it the hero ruins the game for 9 people not 5 as usual
People ban techies just in case you're on their team though. You should really pick a real hero maybe?
My favorite was being added to the "You're Bad at Dota" steam page.
I would report this to valve
I hope you reported his steam account with this picture and game ID
wait some people aren't getting death threats??
Could get him Vac banned for this. Just saying.
Welcome to the community brother techies picker.
Yes i have lost it sometimes and have done the same and am... Not proud..
this is awesome, id like to meet this guy
Hey sounds like you are playing pretty well!
May the salt of their tears make the soil of their heart barren.
Techies players pretending they are the victim...
Death is too good for you.
Considering techies is only picked by people to ruin games for both teams, yea
It is, yeah. Then again a Lifestealer flaming like his life depends on it is also extremely cliché.
I don't feel sorry for you. I hate Techies pickers from the bottom of my heart. I think Techies ruins the fun in the game and Techies pickers (especially spammers) are disgusting
Can you blame him?
OP, did you report him? If you did, did you check if he got LP?
Jesus, imagine being that angry that you want to kill someone for picking a hero that someone else likes to play. someone's upset he's gonna have to be careful jungling mid wave.
As long as you don't claim you got the late game when the enemy team has more carries than your team. Techies does not = late game
This is my jam.
If its ranked yeh its annoying. Youuree picking techies because you want to play him, not because it is legitimately the best pick to win. Do that shit in normal games.
Coming home after work, time ffor a game or two, I don't want a 90 min gaame just because someonne wants techies.
Reported every time.
Well, I'm all for rehabilitating people by treating them normally so they maybe learn to behave normally, but, this would be an instant permaban to his entire steam account if it was up to me.
Although, you have to wonder, if that wouldn't be more fuel to the fire, one day you have a guy raging at people in videogames, the next day he's robbed of his videogames so he goes and shoots up a school.
There's a lesser of two evils here I'm sure.
I'm pretty sure that people who main techies do it just because they enjoy ruining games and making other people tilt. No one who is actively trying to improve as a Dota player will pick techies. In my experience techies games are either a complete 20 minute stomp one way or the other, or it turns into a 90 minute shitfest where only the Techies is enjoying himself
Do you first pick it every game?
terrorists are dealt worse
was 405 Slacks?
Techies is worse than Cancer
As a techies spammer, I just laugh it off. Love to see suffering.
It is a fair trade considering we kill the will of the enemies to live
Techies players deserve reports but not this.
This is obviously hugely inappropriate.
However, not trying to justify this erruption by any means, think of what could have pushed him onto the edge like that and if a techies pick is part of it. As per the rules you did nothing wrong, however your hero pick destroys the fun and prevents people from enjoying the game they like. Food for thought.
Normal and encouraged.
Not sure, but I'd say it's justified
Fuck you for picking techies lol
Yeah man don't fucking pick techies during a ranked game
Unless you're my opponent. Lul go pick it ez mmr
why doesnt valve remove this joke hero already? one of the reasons i quit playing. Games taking long time queue to be matched against techies, if you got to play for 40 min before bed and someone pick techies you are done, let this be turned into a 2 hours game before losing.
Its normal, im pretty sure you should be censoring his username.
You deserve some punishment lol
Yes, i always feel sad when Techies rolls around for my all hero challenge
I always groan and get upset internally when someone picks techies on my team or other team. But I like to passively aggressively destroy them through back handed compliments and spammed chat wheels. Make them as angry as I am that they picked it in a nice way. Then hopefully by the end of it they are mad enough to uninstall dota and go play anything else :)
yes anyone who picks techies should be tortured to death
LMFAO love it!
Yeah that's pretty standard. I mean he's not wrong either. You have to bare an intense hatred towards your fellow gamers to pick Techies.
For the enemy, you're a constant threat of one-hit-kills. For your team mates, you're forcing 4v5 team fights mostly coz Techies really don't offer anything in a team fight if the fight happens away from your bomb clusters and the enemies have bkb's.
So for all other 9 players, Techies makes the game an utter nightmare. And its a prolonged nightmare because Techies make games last longer.
I'm so fuckin' grateful for my hex
thought we'd get the new heroes
but there wasnt a patch
used to refresh the wiki
now i look at it and laugh
even almost miss green heroes
and though for dota i'm thankful
wish i could say "Fuck you" to Icefrog
for waiting until the major
pudge taught me hate
ranked roles taught me patience
and void taught me pain
now i'm still here waiting
i've won and i've lost
but that's not what i see
all that i want
is to play me some shadow fiend
thank u, next
i'm so fuckin' sick of mirana chen
@ /u/fwosh u about
No Shaker Morph? 1/10
new meta just remove abbadon from the hero grid for 1 year
4 matching gems for all of my techies
I'm just sitting here playing offlane only and waiting for void to be an offlane hero again :'(
I think he's gone forever :'(
Rather than nerfing these guys, I recommend buffing other heroes that need to be more in the scene as the dota gameplay is slow, and no need to make it more boring
i like this meme
i'm so fucking grateful for all the terrible patches we had
What's happening in dota? I'm months out of the loop!
Slark isn't even op.. The other 2 on the other hand..
7.22 and alchemist/chen unmentioned? Lulz
Bet valve gonna nerf the boots again instead of focusing on the OP aka void, piranda and stuff
i have been taking a short dote break can someone explain to me this post
I want invoker/ss/lanaya finally to be playble heroes again
No Night Stalker?
that coil cast range nurf was straight up whack
I just noticed, void was a forgotten hero (Everyone was picking PA/SLARK/JUGG/SVEN/WK) before TI9 then suddenly pros started picking it without any buff or whatsoever
Oh God pls no
What a bunch of nerds.
idk why but lately i've been getting queued agains't 5 man party and they all been playing Push till we die,And Its kinda strange as everyone now is doing that now,Pugna,Lycan,chen..I'm sick of seeing these now.😭😭😞😞
everyone is waiting for the next patch now
You forgot lion
Alchemist, Shaker+Morph and Abaddon.
I counter all the heroes above and all other heroes using a viper and a rod of atos. Only tide type tankers and right clickers piss me off.
abba is annoyingly good though, maybe we need a nerf
Haven’t seen slark in a few hundred games at 4.5-5k
Then again, I’m a filthy bloodcyka spammer now
This is the most pleasantly surprising post to hit the frontpage. I mean wow... Even if I am no longer playing, posts like these continue to prove how utterly brilliant this game and this sub are.
A bit away from the game, may I have an explanation?
We’re on 7.22h. Fucking h. Jesus Christ just remove raked roles and get to the next patch and admit when you’re wrong.
these can be counter played
es morph cannot.
"fuc" was coverred by void picture.
it's also nice that now we have to wait 30 minutes so that we see pos 5 players pick veno and go afk jungle minute 1
Pls FFS dont nerf my LOVE VOID AGAINHOLY SHIT.
i know this guy in real life just saying.
My least favorite of the three is god damn faceless void, fuck that bullshit passive
I do not understand this in the slightest
WHAT? also who is ariana grande? isn't that the girl from the Manchester attack?
What am I missing ? Is faceless finnaly nerfed so hard he won't ever get back up ?
God I hate him . Not as much as techies . But still .
id rather live with this patch forever than have to listen to another horrible shit ass song from that clown
Where is my chen boi at? Shit is straight up broken
