[QUOTE=l l;34906405]When he gets a Dagger and BKB he is. :v: He can chase and blink and catch up, along with his passive stun + active stun.

[QUOTE=l l;34906356][t]http://imgkk.com/i/v2ua.jpg[/t] I think I finally played weaver right[/QUOTE] Looks like you did. Although in my opinion, it might be worth it to go something else than radiance. Even though I know weaver is one of the few heroes good with it(imo).
[QUOTE=thisguy123;34906349]Sven, sniper. Sven is pretty good, his abilities are simple enough to understand and useful to any teamfight.[/QUOTE] Sniper has really low base damage and you need to last hit to carry. Sven is...fine, but he really should be played as a roaming ganker. Which reminds me I should play more Sven because he is fun as [I]fuck.[/I] [editline]28th February 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=IAmAnooB;34906527]Looks like you did.

Shukuchi and Germinate Attack make last hitting and farming bigger waves of creeps a breeze.
So, about ganking, almost every hero is near the turrets, do i have to pick off low hp heroes to do asuccessful "gank"? How do you roam?
[QUOTE=Lefter;34906594]So, about ganking, almost every hero is near the turrets, do i have to pick off low hp heroes to do asuccessful "gank"? How do you roam?[/QUOTE] Don't gank if he's hugging the turret unless you're sure you can kill him. Gank the ones that are in a normal position, stun stack them with the laner to avoid letting them get to the turret.
[QUOTE=Lefter;34906594]So, about ganking, almost every hero is near the turrets, do i have to pick off low hp heroes to do asuccessful "gank"? How do you roam?[/QUOTE] You need to get a pretty good feel of the game before you can confidently gank. It basically comes down to who can't get away if you were to jump them. Example: Crystal Maiden and Anti-Mage are laning together. You're Sven are you're on the way to gank them. As much as you would want to, you don't go for Anti-Mage because he could probably take the hits and just Blink away when the stun is over. Even if your allies in the lane against those two had more stuns, Crystal Maiden could freeze someone and you'd be down that second stun that you needed to kill Anti-Mage. Crystal Maiden has really low HP and armor so you could very easily kill her. Anti-Mage can't do anything to stop a gank against her because he has nothing to stop another player (stun, snare). If they're near the turret the same idea applies, but you also need to take into account yourself and your allies. Can you take tower hits long enough to get in and get out alive? If you can't, will the person you kill be worth the effort? What about your allies? Can they take hits from the tower too if they draw tower attention? You also need to know how tower AI works. This was a far more informative post than I first imagined.

[QUOTE=Lefter;34906669]It all ends on me doing the decisions for who to attack? Goddamnit they did said i must know every hero[/QUOTE] It doesn't just end on you. If you call out that you're ganking before you're there, say what you're going to do and then your teammates sit there with their thumbs in each others assholes and you die...well, your teammates are stupid and didn't pull their end of the gank. The link in the OP, "GO AROUND AND KILL" talks about ganking. Read it. "AREA OF INFLUENCE" is pretty good too and relates to ganking. "ROAM AGAINST THE MACHINE" is about roamers, which also relates to ganking, but it's not easy to do solo and it's not easy to do when you're new.

people are offering full-priced AAA games for dota 2 on SPUF isn't it going to be f2p?

The F2P thing is still unknown. It's assumed, and a lot has pointed towards it, but nobody knows at this time. Plus it's access to the Beta which is a sought after thing. They're paying for access now, not when it comes out, which is why they think such items are worth it.
obviously, doesn't change that having patience will turn out to be more profitable in the end for you (trade games for other games that cost money, not a possibly f2p game)
>trying to hook >people walk in front of me >complain when i don't land a hook
Curve the hook.
[QUOTE=Haxxer;34909621]>trying to hook >people walk in front of me >complain when i don't land a hook[/QUOTE] >land every hook you go for early game >someone walks in front of a single hook mid game >entire team calls you bad for missing a single hook It's happened to me before.
OBVIOUSLY if you miss a hook in the entire game it's YOUR fault if your team loses Even if you are 10/0/20 [sp]I've been blamed for losing the game for failing 3 hooks in the entire match when I was carrying my team[/sp]
[QUOTE=Belivo;34908634]Enchantress can be kinky to play, start with witch doc IMO.[/QUOTE] She ain't kinky, she's paper. Like, so little HP, if enemy Gondar is farmed enough he can 1 shot you easily even if you have point booster and a couple of bracers. She's like Leshrac. In right position, hurts, in wrong position, gets hurt.

I've been gold longer than I've had this avatar. I just can't think of anything decent that's animated that I could use.
[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/FOjI2.gif[/IMG] I wanted this delicious old VS portrait as an avatar but then I remembered I don't know shit about editing gifs. Might have to travel to the avatar thread later.
