[QUOTE=FKop_Dragon;35922601]Leshrac's doesn't bother me, but holy fuck when I'm just walking around as Dazzle *CHING THUNK CHING THUNK CHING THUNK*[/QUOTE] I remember playing a game playing as Pudge, while the enemy had a dazzle. 20 minutes in I say "guys I hear dazzle walking around their jungle! Lets get him". 10 seconds later I realize it was me

That's how it works and that's also the reason there's no maphack possibilities. Exept Pudge's Dismember is a global sound regardless of where he is.

Earlier I was playing a game and walked by Roshan. Faceless was killing him but I didn't know this at the time. I still heard his MoM go off and thought they were in our forest and someone caught them in vision for a moment.

[QUOTE=Namaste;35920029]It has lots of creative uses. Avoiding wards/smoking into Rosh are two. They can be really useful for ganking.

Questions about Riki and his invisibility. 1-Can towers spot me? 2-When you get hit, does he lose it? Also, when you do the blink strike do you become "silenced" for a moment?

Also, when you do the blink strike do you become "silenced" for a moment?[/QUOTE] Towers can spot you from a radius, as they have invisibility detection, same with the ancient. When you get hit, you do not lose it, and you do not get silenced when you use blink strike, I believe.

I am SO sick of going against Riki. Every 2nd/3rd match I am against him. At the start of my last match I complained saying "Urgh, Riki as usual" "Enjoy my dust and wards, sucker!" He abandoned very soon after. I'd like to think it was because he knew he wasn't going to get kills handed to him on a silver platter. There was good teamwork on both sides following that though, it's a shame it couldn't have been a proper and valid match. :smith:
I really wonder how comes people think that Dust counters Riki. Smart Riki gets Diffusal just for that, so he can remove dust. Unless 2 people are carrying it, cooldown will allow Riki to escape. Sentry isn't as easy to get rid of, but he has blink strike, i.e. well planned positioning means instant escape from True Sight area. And by the time enemy team is walking around with sentries and 5 people to insta-gib him, well farmed Riki will have BKB, i.e. no stuns to stop him from blink. There are vision-based counters of course, but those are : - Gem (i.e. solved by killing the carrier, not easy, but team can help there) - Spamable debuff like Amplify Damage or Track (diffusal can help, but it's rather wasetful, unless able to escape premise very soon) Still, just because you spend 200 or 180 gold, don't expect to kill Riki with ease. At least not a good Riki. Bad Rikies, different story. Same stuff as with Skeleton Kings that max Critical Strike first and pick up level 2 aura for "safe laning". Food. It's kind of sad when you lane with a guy, see possible kill and check his inventory/skills. In 4-5 minutes I could tell him what he could to in order to improve his game, but in lane I can only point out a couple of "wrongs" which don't really make lasting impression.
[QUOTE=Tokagero;35925211]Smart Riki gets Diffusal just for that, so he can remove dust. Unless 2 people are carrying it, cooldown will allow Riki to escape.[/QUOTE] Thank god there's no smart riki in pubs.
With smart slardar/bh you'll run out of charges pretty fast.
Got to finally try PL today..I haven't really wanted to but I randomed him. Early game sucked for me even though I got 3 kills. I soon after got 3 deaths because this lina fucking HATED ME. She bought at least 4 sets of dust just to kill me. My farm sucked until late game. After I got vanguard, diffusal though the game began to change. I was able to just wreck people. Fun hero but I didn't really carry that well. I pushed well though.
[QUOTE=Mech Bgum;35925301]With smart slardar/bh you'll run out of charges pretty fast.[/QUOTE] As I said, it's rather wasetful to use it against their debuffs that just cost little mana and have barely any cooldown, unlike dust. Still, escaping Slardar isn't that hard as Riki. Cloud will make him miss his attacks and he can't use his Crush while in it, so Cloud + slow on Slardar, and you are likely good to go. Also, who is going to solofarm as Carry without ganker/support flying around to save your ass ? At least wards will/should be there. Bounty is a different story, but he still can't do much to Riki if he uses his cloud (melee, again), unless he gets MKB. And in terms of charges, you get ~16 effective charges (first buy, then upgrade) for entire game, which is a lot actually, but spending ~850 gold to get 8 charges of purge/slow isn't that bad of a deal, especially late game.

Also, when you do the blink strike do you become "silenced" for a moment?[/QUOTE] 1- Yes 2- If you get hit its because they can see it somehow, be it an ability, a Sentry Ward or Dust of Appearance. If you attack or use an item you lose your invisibility.

how should i build bloodseeker? last game i went wraith band, yasha, radiance, bkb, butterfly (then i would get satanic and upgrade yasha into manta) good build?
I got my first abandon for being afk in spawn. [IMG]http://sae.tweek.us/static/images/emoticons/emot-saddowns.gif[/IMG]
I've just got 2 overheats in a row during one match, now I have 1 abandon sitting there, looking at me. I don't know why stats system hates me this much, I've connected to the game in like 5:01 after my first disconnect, 1 team member has already left after me.

As in never play him ever because he's bad. If you really fucking have to for some reason, Vlad's into Abyssal into Butterfly.
