[QUOTE=1112e;44918093][IMG]http://puu.sh/92E6c.png[/IMG] Wat[/QUOTE] It's updating guides you have pinned.
[QUOTE=Mr, Jukebox;44918129]it downloads workshop content every time cosmetics are added to the game or updated[/QUOTE] I thought it's for guides.
[QUOTE=Skunky;44918363]I thought it's for guides.[/QUOTE] Oh. Thats a large file size for some text though.
why is it that the pudge set is the only set out of the 3 free to play sets that does more than just effect loadout and idle and in the sven sets case auto attack. I mean it has five more things it does why don't they all do that much

ID 682553492 This match We were a full melee tank team, against Viper, Necro, Venge, Titan and Visage. Things weren't going well so we decided to unleash The Gay Ball Basically we ran all over the map five-man-snowballing them without rest, till we won. Amazing game and funnest one in a while. Played as Tusk and oh man, new snowball is so good.

[QUOTE=Perhaps?;44917830]Higher ranked the game is - > higher the concentration of anger and rage leading to throws - > lower the level of skill affects game generally if the game is full of low ranked players and you're the exception along with one on their team, it's far more skill based, as you can exploit the enemy and basically be the defining factor. I always think of these matchups as 1v1's for the highest ranked players on each team. fully even games MMR wise make it so each person has to contribute 20% to the pot, as no one should be able to exploit the enemy more than the next guy. When it comes to the first page of live games, or the highest ranked games, you've got a combination of players getting that high in rank via the "1v1" type matchups, and then another handful who got there through relying on other teamates in the "20%" type matchups. This leads to shitty ass games.[/QUOTE] You can't consistently keep winning if you're only adding 20% of your teams impact in a game, eventually you're going to start winning at a 50% winrate or drop a few games. Don't really understand what you're trying to say here tbh.

Just got out of an ability draft game where I was teamed up with a 4-stack who did not want to play the mode, so they intentionally threw the game and were complete asshats the entire time. Ability Draft is fun but not when I get games like that.
[QUOTE=Perhaps?;44917532]No, the MMR's are always balanced, yet the chance for rage is incredibly high. Can we play Guess the MMR? I'm guessing 4400-4600.[/QUOTE] I won 9/10 and got 3k lmao
I won 6/10 and got 4.5k. Wooooo [editline]27th May 2014[/editline] also, DK's game is starting soon, dis gun b gud I certainly hope VG pull out Pugna again, I love it when they do.
I'm on my lose streak, again, mmr dropped by ~200, winrate from 50% to 48% ;_;
[QUOTE=1112e;44918387]Oh. Thats a large file size for some text though.[/QUOTE] A. 63 kb isn't large for some text B. The guide is mostly made out of the scripting that determines which ability/item builds the creator of the guide chose, which is actually a lot of text.
[QUOTE=AnnieOakley;44917360]I wonder what makes people think picking sniper in a ranked pub a bright idea.[/QUOTE] I'm 23-8 on sniper with just 4 of those games being unranked. Then again, I'm a 2.5k scrub. :v:
[QUOTE=AnnieOakley;44917360]I wonder what makes people think picking sniper in a ranked pub a bright idea.[/QUOTE] I never understood why people associated ranked as some big prestigious matchmaking system with competitive spirit and trial. Everyone and their brothers have hard ons for knowing what their MMRs are to the extent where the majority of players play ranked. It's pretty much just like regular match making was before the release of ranked.
Is it even possible to win in solo ranked..? After calibration I have only lost games, and fell from 4000-something to 3900-something, and now I can't bother with it anymore. (Calibration went like 6-4 or 7-3.) Not to mention party MMR. It's a challenge itself because the people I play with have wildly varying ratings, some play more, some play less, some are better, some are worse etc. And some seem to insist on playing ranked even when fucking 3-man stack (fuck ranked with 2 randoms) and then not even play accordingly.. As in, try-hard. Supports especially have to manage their (little) gold income really well, and realize that you can't solo-support as god damned earth shaker.. Oh, the drudgery.

[QUOTE=Clovis;44921317]Solo ranked is easy if you dont get intentional feeders, just play weaver[/QUOTE] My Weaver is basically high K/D but low W/L, so not sure how that would help :v:
[QUOTE=Clovis;44921317]Solo ranked is easy if you dont get intentional feeders, just play weaver[/QUOTE] Or Omniknight. I don't know why more people don't recommend him. He's like the savior of pub games. All you really need is a soul ring to get rolling. Free BKBs and insane burst heal/damage makes him one of the best supports to play in pubs. Even if your carry is average, he'll look like dondo with an Omniknight behind him.
How do you counter techies? I must be prepped for when judgement day comes
contrary to popular belief supports are really not the best way to go about winning solo queue games, sure the fact you can control the early mid game easier than carries helps out the rest of the team getting to their prime with farm, but if you pick an action man carry you can just take the game into your own hands at all points of the game regardless of your shitty team
[QUOTE=MILKE;44921354]How do you counter techies? I must be prepped for when judgement day comes[/QUOTE] Abaddon/Dazzle, get gem and blademail if you want to kill Techies with his own mines. Note that blademail doesn't return damage when Borrowed Time is on, but he should still be safe from being instagibbed by them. Alternatively, just pick a ranged hero and get gem. If the Techies' team is smart, however, when you go play minesweeper they gank and steal the gem. If he is low hp, don't get near him. He will try to suicide and blow you up. Harass the shit out of him, and if he doesn't have regen, he will take fucking [I]ages[/I] to run back to base to heal. Keep ganking him to prevent him from getting levels: If he is already spending all day roaming and placing mines, he is going to be underleveled. Boost the levelcap even further, just don't step on any mines.
[QUOTE=Clovis;44920392]I won 9/10 and got 3k lmao[/QUOTE] Winning all 10 games can still put you in 2k mmr I'm afraid. Since winning 9/10 netted you 3k you can safely assume you had a MMR of around 2,6k before this.
