    I don't really care if someone has to pause; it's ridiculous to be an asshole and unpause because you lack some fucking patience and civility.
    if you dont unpause ASAP, you dont respect your own time kukuku ;>
    Sure as sure

    A player on enemy team d/c's. - You patiently await when they reconnect.
    A player on your team d/c's. - No one notices this or pauses the game. If you do pause, enemy team instantly unpauses the game.
    That's why you need me.... Need someone to punish you for your sins.

    Honestly, man... have you ever just considered going out and getting laid?

    You seem really stressed.

    I like how I am a "bad" part of the community, when most of you just resort to epithets. I think you are deluding yourself over just how good you are as a member of the community.

    matchIDs would be sufficient info, just so, you know, we can actually make an opinion based on facts and not just what your PoV is.

    Certainly, I shall provide match id's, seeming as you don't seem to trust that I am quite legitimately frustrated at the amount of pauses and pause time, per game.

Maybe some day I'll have to queue with you to see if everyone and everything is a shade more terrible in your games or if it simply boils down to perspective.

    thread moved fast.... I used to be like you lysah, didn't think it really existed out side of a few instances.... then a couple weeks back before troll was released.... bug happened to me. Thing was... it wasn't just me, it was also 3 others on my team. I've only seen it that one time (knock on wood)

    I am confused how you claim that a 1 minute afk is an ungodly abuse of your precious time, but then you are dedicating a whole day to make a case study about your pause experiences and post them here. Perhaps your time is not as valuable as you think it is?

    Like Pizza suggested, maybe you should just chill out a little, go for a walk, de-stress a bit. If pauses in dota are getting you this worked up, I think you may have a problem.

    Oh Dota thread, if not for pointless arguing and opinionated drivel, what would we do?

    Have you ever played against a team with a Slardar, Faceless Void and Troll Warlord? I don't think the bashes will ever leave my nightmares. I was certain I was going to develop a stutter.

    This thread is getting a little out of hand. If you guys and girls can't discuss the game or its issues without devolving into snide remarks or insults, I suggest you "hit pause" on your posting and AFK until you cool down.

  17. #6217
    Agreed this probably did get out of hand.

    Games should be fun, not rage inducing. I think its a good idea for everyone, myself included, that if dota is getting you down, to take a break.

    Last night my 8 game win streak was snapped (sadface) because we had a drow who insisted on jungling from level 2. He would kill 2-3 mobs in jungle, return to base, heal up, and back to jungle. I was not pleased. So, for fun, I decided to follow him around the jungle and steal all his last hits. Probably not the most mature thing I could have done. But, oh well.

    Also, I used to think Disruptor was the most fun hero ever, now I'm leaning towards Jakiro. Getting a 4-5 man ice path is crazy fun. Is the more appropriate thing to macropyre and then ice path, or vice versa? I find either way they don't overlap much. Unless I can land it on a narrow pathway.

  18. #6218
    If you can get anyone else to initiate (tide, magnus, even beastmaster) then i prefer casting ice path after, macropyre is powerful but easy to dodge. If no one else can initiate, i'll do ice path but after that jakiro needs another stun or atleast slow to get full mileage out of ulti.

  19. #6219
    I was under the impression Jakiro's ult is nothing special in damage department, am I wrong?
    Sure as sure

  20. #6220
    Yea one of the recent games I played, we had a rubick who stole black hole and got it off on 4 people. I dropped macropyre, then icepath, then Q (cant remember name) and they just melted. It was pretty fun to watch.

    Also since I play mostly supports, I'm always wishing that we had a magnus. RP into disruptor ult + field. RP into macropyre. RP into echoslam. RP into puck orb, silence, ult. It's just such a ridiculous initiation.
