I don't mind playing with russians at all. I even encountered quite a lot of good russian team mates who were able to communicate and speak english half-decently. The only problem I have with them is when they just spam and speak russian over microphone. Now, alright you speak russian, but why do you have to insult everyone on your team mates with сука, пиздец, иди нахуи, даваи дв, мид фид. Anyway, I don't think it's as a big problem as it's with the manners.
Do you even undestand what resources will you need for such project? it's pointless, valve will go bunkrupt.Type or talk in some other language than English on those servers = 4 week ban to English speaking servers.
Heh. Played my first game in probably two months and there's a dude on the other team that instalocked void, has some kind of Na'Vi name with colors, his text is orange, and he talks shit. ALL. GAME.
Never mind the fact that their Puck, Wisp, and Keeper were pretty much the only reason they won, and their Puck did so well because our QoP mid fed him four times in ten minutes due to 350ms ping.
I just don't get why someone's gonna act like a prick on freaking Christmas. Oh well. We had a fun kill on him where he tried to fountain dive us with aegis and I slapped him with a net then Doom and he died about half a second after aegis faded. That was pretty special.

I don't know if I'd pick Puck in general, but even if he's not the most uber hero he's probably one of the most fun.

Man, two games in a row with complete shit players on one side or the other. Already I'm remembering why I stopped playing.
it's not christmas in russia yet (they celebrate it on januare 7th)
Although I play in a 4-5 man stack whenever I play, which makes communicating initiations a lot easier, so I tend to Puck it up with them. Puck is a rare pick for me in solo-queue, I tend to random in that situation.
In regards to your earlier comment about Puck not being good for much else than being a pain in the ass, I will have to respectfully disagree. I won't claim that I play at any level of "high-skilled" play, but in my usual matchmaking games I have a decent impact on the game as Puck, even if I offlane her.
yeah, and that would require assload of people who will manually check it, and any kind of automotive systems isnt reliable at all.Rofl, we are living in the age of computers. You could even make it so that people can report players for typing in another language and it wouldnt take any more resources.
Loving the event so far. Got the golden greevil earlier today. \o/
Granted, I very seldom soloqueue. I utilize voice com, and usually find myself completely ignoring other random players when playing with a stack.
I guess we just have different viewpoints. Regardless, if you want to improve, your team mates shouldn't matter. Focus on your own gameplay, even if that loss was the fault of that russian guy who refused to listen to reason or speak to you in English. You are not trying to make him a better player after all, correct?
Is it just me, or is Phase Boots + Drums + Wand basically the best generic item build for support/utility heroes? Move speed, attack damage, attack speed, and a heap of stats for low cost. Just seems to work so damned well on any hero with a good attack animation like Shadow Demon or Dazzle.
Phase boots, despite being amazing for support, can be not as effective as mana boots, it depends who and where you lane, VS who you lane, etc.
generic- sure, always the best - hardly. also drums is quite expensive(considering you go pb-wand-) and unless you have some carries that benefit from them it might be better to go in a different direction.
