    it's also fun when you get power stuns off, and the team starts to QQ because "WHERES THE STUN VISAGE? YOU SUCK!"
    maybe I just need to find a team to play with >_>

    Only checking in because I read about this in the newspaper we get, never heard about them before, 2 local boys in the team, the prize money suprised me, pretty decent cash tbh.

    Anyways. Article. Google Translate(which is so-so at translating stuff).

    Joakim Akterhall, aged 25 from Askim, Gothenburg became champion in the computer game Dota 2, together with the Swedish team Alliance.

    Dota, Defense of the Ancients, began as a map to the popular game Warcraft three. The world's largest tournament in the sequel to the game ended on the night of Monday in Seattle, USA, with the Swedish team Alliance emerging victorious.

    - We've all fought so long, I've been playing Dota for nearly eight years, so it's like a dream come true, he says.

    Along with his teammates, he won over nine million SEK after the Alliance beat a team from Ukraine in the final. Joakim Akterhall formed the team along with Jonathan Berg from Majorna, Gothenburg almost a year ago, and another three Swedes play in the team.

    When Joakim is not playing Dota, he works to develop mobile apps for the enterprise mobile storytelling, which he runs with some former schoolmates. He was in the competition, "the International" for the first time last year, and ended up on a shared ninth place.

    What is the secret to becoming a great Dota player?

    - The fact that you play with a team that you really like, trust everyone in the team, have fun while you practise and yet can maintain sharp and serious at the same time. One tip is to look at the great players and matches, and learn to understand how they play when you are new.

    What does it mean for you to win this competition?

    - It has gone pretty well for us during the year, we have been in China and won there, at Dreamhack and won twice, and we've been the Ukraine and won. But this contest is larger compared to any other, and it's great to have it confirmed that we are indeed the best team in the world right now. We will continue to try to retain our title.

    Now what?

    - We basically just played Dota the past three weeks and has played a lot this year, so now when we get home, we will take a break of three weeks where we just take it easy, and I'll go on a trip with my girl .

    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    I've been randoming and even picking (when I've found myself in AP) Visage a lot for the past 6 months, and it has steadily gone from 'did you seriously just pick Visage' to 'wtf Visage picker.' Pretty good for a hero with an ult that's not even worth the skill points.

    Alliance had some incredible plays in Game 5 but also some minor mistakes by Na'Vi overall amazing series.

    anyone know if you can bind the ''follow unit'' command to something else then your right click?

    Is this for the purposes of being able to follow someone by using another button or so you won't follow someone by mistake?

    If it's the first case, m + leftclick. If it's the second, I don't think you can unless you want to unbind right-click movement commands completely.

    First things first, its heroes. I know its picky but that is just the correct term.
    In regards to hero guides you have Dotacinema doing hero spotlights to give you a general idea of the hero.
    Then there's Purge doing some more in depth replay commentary of games and heroes he has played.
    I cant think of anything else there might be.

They are the only team that will try to get pudge+chen combo and succeed at it -in a big,big way- against tongfu while they were at a clear disadvantage. At that match, combat vise, Na'Vi was winning. They lose because of 2 heroes. Puck and furion. Alliance has a very cheesy and cheap tactic which EVERYONE can do -atleast playing at my rating, every retard can pick furion and push endlessly avoiding combat, making the other team lose balance-. The only player that deserves some kind of trophy in that team is s4, the puck player. Because if dendi and puppey were able to get back WITH alchemist on time, they'd wipe the alliance and retaliate OR turtle, s4 prevented this and was a brilliant play in his part. But I'm sorry, that split push is not something special, it's merely a cheap tactic when you see you are at a clear disadvantage when you are in mass combat.

    Don't pretend like it's an astounding play or anything, please. Alliance picks furion just because they know that Na'Vi has better combat capabilities and their only hope is to make them lose balance with endless pushes from 2 lanes. I simply cannot get how this is "good play", to me it is not championship worthy playstyle.
    So all I see is the Secretary of Nagrictulure in your post.
    You hold Navi up to the skies, they get beaten and that is somehow luck or something?
    I guess fountain hooking is good play in your world.

    It's no better or worse than any other winning play. People keep saying cheesing means you don't deserve to win, but I'd say if you lose to a cheese you very much deserve to lose. I don't care which team won or how, but when chips are down all that should matter is your ability to outplay your enemy and win, and as long as you're not breaking rules there should be no reason to limit your strategic options or care what internet specialists have to say about it.

    YouTube DotaCinema "heroname" guide and then you'll find a short guide on the hero.

    Idd, who cares how you win as long as you win, you play your cards and do everything in your power to get a win, esp when it's +1m dollars on the table. Anything els is stupidity. It's like those people who complained about Chelsea winning the UCL by parking the bus infront of the goal, if you can't work yourself around it then thats on you.
