    Played about 5 games after the patch hit, the fairy girl is freaking annoying that shadow walk skill of hers, combine that with a blink dagger >_<.
    Only played one game with pangolin but other his ultimate he didn’t seem so bad

    I like this patch generally but Pangolier is fucking awful and Dark Willow has way too much damage and utility. They spent months developing this but these heroes feel so out of place like the Ember/Earth Spirit patch times 10.

    Enemy picks Techies, Bounty and Legion, and I'm solo supporting 4 melee heroes. I got flamed and apparently reported by a 3 stack for not buying a gem (though I bought 21 sentry wards) and the other member of our team asked why they picked 3 melee heroes after the enemy first picked techies and why none of them bought the gem since I would be ganked and we would lose it also suffered an endless flaming.

    Most my games are fun, then you run into situations like this and it makes me think that maybe it just isn't worth playing support.

    Pangolier seems to be ridiculously good from the matches I've been watching. 2 sec shield bounce during Sanic mode that gives you magic immunity and stuns anyone you touch is... pretty decent. Very mobile hero that has some decent damage potential.

    Only thing I've seen is that his passive kinda sucks. The activation time is maybe too high.

    Dark Willow is almost certainly OP, probably needs longer cooldown on ult or maybe a small shared cooldown so you can't chain the ults back to back.

    I stopped playing years ago because I couldn't justify the effort it took to have fun. Region locking would help, but if Valve really wants solo queue to be fun they're going to have to hire warm bodies to actually start taking out the trash. Automated systems only go so far.

    Well I'm 14-6 in my last 20 games, so I'm doing well but I really wish I could turn things around with Vengeful Spirit (1-3) like I've won all my laning stages with her (as a support) and have a 3+ kda in each game, but for some reason it always seems to fall apart at the end.

    But what exactly is Monkey King's role anymore? He doesn't seem to do enough damage to really be useful, and if somebody has a blink dagger his tree hop isn't that valuable. I've won 2 games as Lich with one in the off lane, but both games I felt like we won inspite of Monkey, rather then because of him.

    Also had a Tri-Lane with a Tidehunter and Bane as Lich against a Anti-Mage + Ogre. Between Enfeeble and Ice Armor, eating the ranged Creeps and Tide's Passive, that was probably the funnest game I've had against an Anti Mage. Can't speak Portuguese or Spanish, but I'm fairly certain he was not saying anything nice to us.

    Then there's the topic of turtles. Some like them a lot.

    I know this is just about a dead topic area but I had probably the single worst game I've ever played. Enough so that I am giving honest thought to if I even enjoy this game enough.

    An hour and a half, with the final 40ish of it being a 3v4 with my team being the 3. Prior to two leaving, all I got was mass pinging... mass pinging all game. Where are wards? Why are wards over there? I'm not pushing that lane!!!11! Never mind the three of us communicating were together taking objectives. Then the screeching over voice came on, and fuck if I couldn't hit mute quick enough in a team fight. Not shit talking, just literal top of lungs screaming.

    The other two with me were game to keep playing and nice people when the two who abadoned did so. But somewhere along the way, man that game made me doubt how much I enjoy this anymore.

    Also you're wrong, the people who agree with you are wrong, and you're probably ugly.
    Ever been so angry at everyone on the internet you tell a woman she is mansplaining?

    I fucking called it. I fucking called it. Support Sven, always said it was doable and even legit... and it's everywhere in Chongqing Major. I haven't seen support CK in this major, but he was present in previous majors.

    Support Luna, swore up and down it was legit and had so much potential, everyone called me an idiot. And Secret just dogfucked VP in 17 minutes with it.

    Now do y'all fucking believe me? :P

    Unfortunately I can't post any links yet, but if you search "Dota 2 bindings" on youtube, you'll find several decent videos that give good settings you can experiment with.
