Re: DOTA 2

It certainly puts a spanner in the works of the pro scene. Basically no idea who's best now. All about who adapts quicker. I'd imagine with more farm available both on the map and with the deny change, teams like EG and Liquid will love this patch.

Re: DOTA 2

True Sight from the grand final of Kiev Major is out:



The contrast between the two teams is really interesting and it's amazing to get a look at what is going on in the booths. As a huge OG fan it gave me chills to watch but it's a must watch for any Dota fan imo.

Re: DOTA 2

NoTail such a boss. Definitely edited to tell a certain story mind you. The contrast probably wasn't as great in reality.

There's definitely an element of that and also apparently it's hard to accurately translate the Russian and keep the tone of what was said. A lot of the insulting and swearing at each other was done largely in a jokey way but it's hard to convey than in subtitles.

Re: DOTA 2

7.06b:

Sven: God's Strength bonus strength reduced from 16/28/40 to 12/24/36
Sven: Base Attack Time increased from 1.7 to 1.8
Troll Warlord: Agility gain reduced from 2.75 to 2.5
Broodmother: Spin Web HP Regeneration increased from 2/4/6/8 to 3/5/7/9
Monkey King: Wukong's Command attack cooldown improved from 1.7 to 1.6


nice to see a balancing patch so soon, seems like all pretty good changes. now that Sven is nerfed not sure who is good ban material

didn't even realize what they changed... undispellable and 100 cheaper, yea that's a pretty decent change. jeez it lasts 3 seconds on melee targets, BUT it lasts for 5.5 seconds (!!) on ranged target wtf

that means potentially could HH a drow or something, then she pops 5 sec BKB and completely wastes it

It should be dispellable by BKB. What can someone who is disarmed do now?

^ speaking of, Crystal Maiden's frostbite is fookin' ridiculous (such a long root even at level 2, great for sunstrike setup)

Re: DOTA 2

So happy that Season MMR is back, Playing in SEA servers is toxic as hell, adding a pay wall to play ranked has made my last 30 games amazing... Yet to run into any serial feeders and generally everyone is trying to get a good season MMR.

Wish this was permanent feature, to make the 'Free/toxic/re-roll another account LP' players play with themselves.

Yeah and so they move out of the fight and their team gets wrecked? I think we will see it in most pro games soon.
