    Balance changes since his release. Snowball cooldown buff seems good and the crit increase is aight but it's not like he's a lot stronger or anything. Maybe I'm just not good enough at using my mana properly but personally I feel he needs too many regen items to keep the ball rolling (harhar) for long without going back to base over and over.

    I stopped having regular leavers after a few games in. First 10 or so games are pretty all over the place but it gets better after that. Now, I mostly only see people flatout abandon a game in the first 2 minutes and even then it's a 1/40 games thing. Ambiguous disconnects are another issue though...

    ah maybe it gets better thats good to know. Im struggling enough with the controls not to have to play 2v5 because someone lost first blood.

    Just get energy boots on Tuskarr, it's not like one QWR combo won't kill any hero with less than 700 hp at level 7.
    Win and live. Lose and die.

    Running worse than losing.

    had this game where tusk, bara and alchi would farm my Zeus like, 1/10 at 17 minute into game, but hey, ghost specter+eul works wonders, and we've won

    I was thinking Tusk could work quite well either mid with sidelanes that get arcane or laning with someone who gets arcane, I don't really like building them on Tusk himself but eh.

    Next one looks like Skywrath Mage. Then Abbadon and Bristlebog (or back).
    Do take in mind that different people work on different heroes, so you might see some heroes come out faster than others.

  10. #6670
    I want Xyn and Abbadon. And techies ofc, dont really care about the rest. But both new heroes look OP as hell

  11. #6671
    Techies will get released last with a rework prior to release.

    Most loved and hated hero in doto history. Those of us who aren't garbage players will miss you.

    Well it stands to reason that the one hero that somehow is worse than Bloodseeker could use a slight makeover.

    400 matches in, I dont see any leavers (still got occasional afkers though). Low priority queue is the PoS that I never would want to step in.

    Thanks for compiling those changelogs it all made sense now. i often see tuskar players buying arcane or bloodstone or even urn of shadows for early item. he's a beast on ganking

  16. #6676
    In the few Tusk games I've played I've noticed that a few items from a selection of Bottle, Urn, Drums, Wand, Medallion and Vlads/Basi easily give you enough mana to not need Arcanes on yourself. I wouldn't condemn them as bad but would rather see someone else in the team get them.

    personally i would prefer pboots on tuskar as it can maximize his ganking ability more. having more mobility for chases (benefits well his skills too) and damage.

    not enjoying this at all every game is just awful. Last game I bought a courier and put it on the ground from stash and someone picked it up and played whole game with it in inventory. Also snowballing seems ridiculous to the point that if someone gets fed they become unkillable. Then people leave and its just a case of waiting to lose or leaving yourself. I think I will stick to LoL for simple reason that I can play it to a decent standard and most games seem pretty balanced. I can see the appeal in a harsher moba where item builds and farm are more important but its not for me from what I can see. Also not being able to center camera on my character is pretty annoying.

    Yeah, Dota 2 has the bad habit of being extremely unfriendly to beginners.
    The new "quests" coming in will hopefully make it easier to learn the game, but there's just so much to learn, and the game doesn't teach you anything, currently.

    I think centering the camera on yourself is a very bad thing. It hinders your awareness, since you can only see yourself and what goes on in a very small radius around you.
    Unless you mean just moving the camera to yourself. F1 is the usual button to target yourself, just tap it twice and that should center it on you.

  20. #6680
    ah I didnt know that thanks, I pressed it once and it just put a green arrow on me. Yeah I just like to center camera in certain situations, I know its a bad habit but its hard to break those habits

    I didnt really expect it to teach me anything, but im being thrown in games with lvl 15s in my first few games and just getting dominated. I played a game that was 2v5 in our favour, and I thought well this should be easy, but a queen of pain on the other team got 48 kills and was 1-2 shotting everyone, and there didnt seem to be a counter to it, that a new player can easily see.
