I can agree. I try every day to play DotA for fun but when you're a highly skilled player it just isn't possible. You're going to get pissed at your teammates when they screw up and that's that. Every time you play one handed and still go 16-0 and STILL lose the game because your 4 allies are a combined 4-56 the fun is gone. You either play to win or you stop playing. Like I said before, when you're an average player, just playing the game can be fun. Win or lose, you can look at things you did wrong and try to improve and that progress itself can be fun. When that progress is gone, the only fun that remains is winning. It sounds crappy and people act confused as to why I love the game so much when I'm not even having fun playing it, so, there's my opinion.
Not sure if that's what longview meant at all but there you go. He might've just been making a joke, after all. I would still agree.
When I play games I watch my allies' mistakes as they happen and there's nothing I can do about it. That's probably the most frustrating part. See Slardar pushing too far top, 4 went mia, "you're getting ganked sla-dead already." Whole team jungling, 5 went mia, "they're probably smoke ga-3 people dead already." Best part, pushing 4 bot and carry is free farming top, manage to pull out even trades or maybe get a tower, 10 minutes later, "I sure hope Drow got farm-nope she still has shit nothing." Or the ever famous ally getting picked off jungling during a 5 man push mid, so what do my 2 supports do, "SAVE HIM SAVE HIM" and everyone runs into a 1v5 one at a time.
And by the way, since you hated on Visage and Familiars not too long ago... back then I defended him and only had like 3 games played on him since the DotA days when he summoned and army of bats and Soul Assumption was passive. I've played quite a few games on him the past few days and I've wrecked shit in most of them, even if my play hasn't been particularly amazing. Latest or second latest game I was solo offlane against carry+support+jungler and went 6-0 in 10? minutes and godlike later on and won the game at 15-1 despite the relentless feeding by my friends. (Admittably they weren't all that good because one of my friends wouldn't log his real account.) Nothing like picking off enemies left and right with the shitty bats that don't do damage. And I don't think I haven't lost more than 4 or 5 of them in a game yet.
What did the unusual essences actually do?
edit: I am sorry this must be broken - left one is six essences in total (did not get even get wings when upgraded to flying) and the right one is five (-1 yellow)

but please don't be the guy that goes "well fuck you man I'm having fun" while ruining the game for your team mates.
So Templar Assassin:
Does her Meld +Damage have some internal cooldown or something? I was playing her for the first time in a practice game last night and I came to the following conclusions:
1. +Damage doesn't seem to work if you move out of Meld then attack as opposed to just attacking out of Meld
2. Dust completely fucks her over because she has 0 escape if anyone with a stun is chasing her
