Not to mention each Dota 2 hero has 5-10 times longer soundtracks (save for Wisp) than in any other game in the genre and layers of interactivity that don't exist in other games. I'd call that pretty high quality.
@Kuntantee I only mentioned HoN because in HoN it turned out most people preferred simple tooltips even if they lacked essential information. And what information is essential is pretty subjective to user anyway. What I said was my opinion alone, because in my opinion the UI is quite fine as it is and I would hate health globes and lack of portraits.
About second part in your post: That's a poor word decision on my side. English is not my mother tongue and I can't say I'm very good at it. What I was trying to say is that very few people actually care about lore and the reason is the nature of ARTS genre. I should also elaborate what I was trying to say with "caring lore". I, too, read my fav. heroes background story etc. but that doesn't mean I do care about it. Even if they were poorly written texts or even there was no text at all, I would keep playing this game and I'm pretty sure it applies everyone in this thread and rest of DotA2 community. This is because gameplay is not directly related with lore unlike a RPG.

Drow Ranger just passed Centaur Warrunner in win rate according to DotaBuff: https://dotabuff.com/heroes/winning
Speaking about auto-cast, is there any way to toggle it on and off with buttons? Toggling it by right-clicking is rather clunky, I feel.
Also I love how Wisp sounds just like the character he plays.

If you want an example of a game where there are three voice actors for five billion different characters, look at any Bethesda game.
There's a reason old school RPGs had a lot of text and voice acting was only for important stuff :-/
well, Batrider turned out to be actually interesting and funny hero
+1 to favorites, it seems, right after Rubick and Jakiro

I've been playing with a friend of mine, we're usually going together top/bot in games. I've been having a lot of fun with Lich, anyone have any thoughts on a good laning partner for him? My friend's usually playing an agi carry, and sometimes some of the strength heroes, figured we could iron out a solid strategy.
Jugger or a strong str hero (not Sven!).
If you want a lane that can get early kills however, Juggernaut as a couple of people have mentioned is the perfect choice. Just combo Frost Blast with Spin at the right moment and you're golden.
But really, any carry will work with Lich because he is a great babysitter.
If you want a good lane, I suggest Juggernaut + vengeful spirit. This lane will always work in pubs. Also tiny + centaur is a deadly lane.
