[QUOTE=Atlascore;35441395]Why would you get aegis.. on skeleton king? I mean yeah reviving twice is pretty cool but by time you revive the second time your team will most likely be dead and you'll die instantly.[/QUOTE] Like Tokagero said, it's incredibly useful with your Level 3 Ult. By the time you're focusing on Rosh, SK should be pretty tanky which also makes him a pretty devastating hero too when he comes back from the dead.
Why do bad players never ask for advice ._. Lost 2 matches in a row with witch doctor, both for the same reason. We are dominating but we have 1 team mate that sucks horribly, he leaves and then everyone starts leaving...

Had a satisfying game for once, with good ol' Enigma. Those holes are satisfying to land, every single time.
[QUOTE=Dr.Scrake;35441410]yeah better give it to a 0/11 bat rider he sure will make good use of it right?[/QUOTE]That's not what I was saying, at all.

[QUOTE=Atlascore;35442147]That's not what I was saying, at all.[/QUOTE] So what Getting aegis on skeleton king is awesome, and all I have to say to prove so is: divine rapier (and I'm not trying to sound like an asshole!)
Looking for another update.. will it goes to maintenance?

[QUOTE=Hobbax;35442687]Looking for another update.. will it goes to maintenance?[/QUOTE] [url]http://blog.dota2.com/[/url] [quote]Bear in mind that there will not be an update next week as we will be hibernating during that time. .... Bear[/quote] You will have to bear with the fact that there is no update this week.
Valve is having their faculty vacation this week.
[QUOTE=Reimu;35439162]It's really hard to teach new players because DOTA is so complex. That's one of the reasons why you just don't want to q with people who are new. It's easier to teach an experienced player if they're doing something wrong, while with newer players your advice might just go straight over their head because they don't know what you mean. It's not that they aren't listening, they just literally don't know what to do. If you tell an awful sniper that he should buy lothars, for instance, he's not going to know what that is and he might not know how to even buy it piecemeal. And then he might not know how to use it properly, and he might have built/farmed Sniper rather poorly so lothras wouldn't help much. Meanwhile if you tell a more experienced newbie to buy lothars, he's probably farmed & built Sniper up pretty well and he understands what to do. It's like there's a threshold for being new, and there's a cut off point wher eyou just can't help some players.[/QUOTE] Well maybe if you didn't call it a lothars or at least tell them it's the Shadow Blade in the store as it's name, I'm sure they would probably be more likely to buy it rather than going "what the hell is a lothars"

[QUOTE=Reimu;35443214]That's one of the points I was trying to make.[/QUOTE] "It's so hard to teach people who are new to the game" (who probably haven't played Dota 1) "Fuck calling it by its Dota 2 shop name, I'm going to confuse the shit out of them." Doesn't seem very helpful to me. You could have a really good Dota 2 player who hasn't played Dota 1, but has no idea what the hell a lothars is, so he doesn't build it which more or less handicaps him.

I think if you write Lothar in item shop search bar it will give you Shadow Blade. Those names ain't hard to get used to either. I played very little of old Dota and they don't seem to confuse me.
Game releases in a week, except the update then. A big one, I imagine.
[QUOTE=The very best;35443508]Game releases in a week, except the update then. A big one, I imagine.[/QUOTE] game releases in a week dude what, there's still a fuckton of heroes missing as well as a fuckton of cosmetics and shit like that
[QUOTE=The very best;35443508]Game releases in a week, except the update then. [/QUOTE] Ehm, source ?
[QUOTE=RagerTrader;35441908]Becuas eif someone ever says they are new, they are shunned and abused.[/QUOTE] Actually a lot of people will be nicer if you admit you're bad, etc. I remember when I was still sort of new to this game and said "Sorry guys new to this game, wouldn't mind any tips or anything." The whole game I was given tips and most of all they would try their best to protect me (Walled around me somewhat in teamfights).

So I am watching Dendi's stream and he is playing Lone Druid and has farmed 7 battle furys. I assume this is not the recommended build. His team has a 60k gold lead.

Not sure if DOTA is coming out next week, but some folks down in Southeast Asia who put in their beta key have gotten receipts for "DOTA 2 retail," not "DOTA 2 beta." So I have no idea.
[QUOTE=Reimu;35444079]Not sure if DOTA is coming out next week, but some folks down in Southeast Asia who put in their beta key have gotten receipts for "DOTA 2 retail edition." So I have no idea.[/QUOTE] Maybe that's because Dota is confirmed to be F2P TF2 style, so all we getting with this beta is early access to full client that is getting updated on regular basis. On top of that Dota 2 Test was added. Thats it.

[QUOTE=Tokagero;35444004]Let me guess, Bear has 5 rapiers and radiance ? Damn stompers.[/QUOTE]Both him and the bear had 6 battle furies. The other team got completely stomped, it was a 70 minute game, they only got 15 kills. :v:

Unlike CS:GO, which won't say that at all.
[QUOTE=RagerTrader;35440712]You know what's fun? When the enemy team has Drow, Huskar, or any other Auto-attack dependent heroes. And I build Halberd as Sven.[/QUOTE] I can confirm this.
