    Bambi ain't that strong. She's easy to counterplay. It's more of "offlane heroes that can farm hard camp" are way too strong.

    Techies just dog shit right now and im ok with it, if a hero should be dogshit, it should always be techies. I rather face 5 OD every game then play techies matches.

  3. #22003
    My main point is that techies falling out of meta has left people not prepared to see him in the highest possible skill bracket of pubs as often as he used to be. Are void and enchantress better heroes? By far. Are you gonna win 10 games in a row with either of them in solo queue pubs? No. None of you are. Not because you aren't as good as me, but because current meta has people prepared to counter those heroes. I wouldn't be 17-1 techies in the last 3 days if techies was still meta.

    I don't want the hero buffed and I'm not saying he's the strongest. If anything, arguing how shitty he is just enforces how godlike I must be at this game.

    Because it takes a real genius to stumble around dropping mines and killing himself.

    This Meta made me play SD, simply because every team picks Omni instantly after they picked OD.

    Feels good to purge those OD's who feel save with Repel+Omni Ult.

    Ench can also fuck off, i don't need rightklicks to harass her, once i have scepter she just rolls over and dies.

    Holy shit in the last week i dropped from 4400 down to 3700. Im honestly thinking of quitting, im so over it and really dont want to grind back up again. As a support player its utterly hopeless when you see your team mates are mouth breathers mid game.

    My winrate with Techies has only dropped by a few % since the nerfs; I'm on another 8 or 9 winstreak at the moment.

    I will say that the current meta has more natural counters than before; every fucking game it's nothing but Nature's Prophet, Invoker and Zeus. So the games are quite a bit more difficult.

    A big problem is currently the popularity of Spectre for most Support heroes.

    Once Spectre has enough farm, she just has to press Ult and most Supports nearly die to that, Spectre doesn't even have to jump into the illusion to kill a solo support.

    If you throw in Heroes like NP and Zeus, you're in a world of hurt because you die to completely unavoidable stuff.

    Personally, when im running around alone as solo sup and Spectre uses ult, i just instantly TP, no point in waiting until Spectre jumps into the Illusion next to you.

    I was sick of dying to Storm Spirit when he was super popular because you couldn't do anything about it, but this Spectre crap is about the same level of shit.

  9. #22009
    Suggestion: Play shadow-shaman or Lion. Both of them have abilities to instantly destroy Spectre illusion. Admittedly, both are rather fragile, so you're gonna want to buff up with a casual cloak and some hp probably.

  10. #22010
    They need to change Spectre back to only being able to use reality once, the thing that really makes her broken is that she can teleport around the goddamn map multiple times, and even teleport to kill you and then teleport back to her lane to keep farming if she's fast enough. At the very least she needs to stop leaving illusions behind when she teleports, it should cost her something to jump you with haunt and involve some form of risk, not fountain dive you hit you three times and teleport back across the map to her base. There is nothing I hate more than zero risk heroes (le old balanced Spirit). If you take the risk out of decision making, it isn't decision making it anymore, it is always a good decision to try to kill people because if you fail nothing is lost, and you will succeed sometimes. This makes these heroes able to just spam their abilities on cooldown with no consequences and inevitably get a kill here and there, allowing them to snowball out of control regardless of how good the player actually is at the game. Risk vs. reward is what balances heroes and separates good from bad players. Take out the risk and there is just reward reward, and the only difference between good and bad players is that good players know how to slam haunt the second it's up while bad players hold on it to it for the one shining moment they might get to killsteal someone else.

  11. #22011
    that's why spec is op. fountain diving and finishing off people who'd have been dead by a zeus ult/ invoker sunstrike from pro genius players who weren't paying attention. and then going back to his original avatar to farm. holy shit that's insane OP. exactly why spectre is a strong hero.

    I can't help but feel slightly suspicious towards LiiLoSNK's sincerity in his statement. It feels like it's almost sarcastic.

    Maybe I should finish up the C++ project so I can back to Dotka Zweiss.

  13. #22013
    it'd make so much more sense to nerf something like desolate, increase illusion dmg taken, lengthen ult cd even longer, or at least something essential to her, rather than nerfing the most gimmicky aspect of the hero.

    personally i think the heroes fine. any nerf she will inevitably get in the very near future should be a small one.

    They need to nerf the map/mechanics, not heroes. Spec is OP because you can send someone like Sylla or Bambi offlane and they get almost as much farm and XP as a pos 1 because how OP that hard camp is.

    A tonload of heroes can farm the hard camp with Iron Talons.

    Enchantress & Lone Druid are so strong because they can sustain themselves on a lane even if the enemy tries to zone them.

    I mean even the most ineffective tri lane can force out regular offlane heroes by just going after them, doesn't really work vs Enchantress or Lone Druid.

    They're like Brood, you have to answer with specific heroes, if you don't have them they pretty much auto win the lane, except that LD & Ench have some real impact on the game with their advantage.

    I pretty much stopped playing Dota until the next patch, seeing as how someone picks OD or Spectre and the game is called. Only problem, 90% of the times, when it's on my team, neither of the players of these heroes can do anything at all. When these heroes are against me, it feels like I'm playing against Miracle or W33....

    Not cool ..

  19. #22019
    play ranked. it's slightly less the norm for people to play heroes they suck at.
