The DotA Pro App just spammed a dozen push notifications to my phone. I went to leave a review and, wow people really hate this app.

    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.

    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?

    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'.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

  • doctorofphiloshopy

    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
