You'll have to point out exactly what is the most jewish with this update because nobody with self-respect knows anything about dota 2.

Some of the new talent trees are absolutely insane. Overall, it looks pretty good. RIP in piss jungle LC.

Luis Ross

Furry & Ugly Pixy
Seem pretty broken (Ugly Pixy reeks of more bullshit than furry)

Apparition Model
Sort of better than last year's Viper and Sladar gay dragon models.

Turbo mode and Rank updates
Lol, they're really trying to compete with HoTS and LoL. Did anyone tell them HoTS is tanking and LoL's playerbase is declining?

Item changes
<Ruined a lot of items
<Even removed some
Holy shit, they ruined Diffusal Blade, and ruined so many others. Riki and PL users are gonna be on suicide watch. Orb if Venom is useless.

<Poor Man's Shield is gone
Wtf?!

Heroes
They shat on Broodmother, but made Beastmaster a bigger faggot. Since when could Wraith King summon skeletons?

tl;dr - They kind of made 7.00 look good with this shitty patch.

Cooper Edwards
Cooper Edwards

Two new heroes are literally LoL tier and they are making changes to game to turn it into a rice meta

But most stupid thing is Turbo mode which wants to steal cancerous playerbase from HotS

Brandon Roberts

Rank changes are pretty bad too.

Attacks can proc Counter Helix at lv 20
Because Axe being an unkillable wall of HP wasn't enough apparently.
Turbo mode is just -em from WC3 Dota. Which is going to be shit, because it teaches some really bad habbits that don't apply to normal games.
Medals are purely cosmetic and if they work like they do in CSGO, they just show in what percentile bracket of MMR you're currently. is the fact you have to do placement matches every 6 months now that worries me.

Jacob Ortiz
Jacob Ortiz

Why should that worry you? Gets rid of the fags that take long ass breaks and don't belong in their MMR anymore.

That's actually a good point.

those Broodmother changes
First Shelob in the new LOTR game, and now this shit.
It's like everyone suddenly hates spider characters these days.

Carter Peterson
Carter Peterson

I think Brood actually got a buff. If you look at how she's been played since TI7, it's been all manfighting, no one really plays around her invis anymore. Retaining movement buffs while under attacked makes her even more insane att manfighting in my opinion. Talents look pretty good too.

Colton Allen

At least the other one is interesting.

You need to try her, she's actually harder to kill now unless you chain stun her to death.

Cooper Campbell

Oh, and they fucked over Clinkz by making strafe end when someone shoots at him 3 times.
At least there's still the custom maps.

Grayson Ward
Grayson Ward

Hell no. The only actual nerf she got was her base movement speed. Spiders' effective HP is actually roughly the same with the MR/armor buffs, they're just more susceptible to Pure damage now(but who the fuck is gonna use a pure damage ability to clear spiders anyway).

Strafe is way better now for ganking. You just can't solo siege towers as easy because the tower will cancel strafe.

Brood's "nerf" is that she no longer plays around her invisible webs but around manfighting, her spiders got a massive buff

Thomas Howard
Thomas Howard

Yo, there is a lot of weird jewery going on in this patch. I hate the new mkb, I need a reliable way to counter evasion. Bane is total cancer, Razor is cancer, new Viper is cancer, I am not sure if I want to play this game.

Joshua Jones
Joshua Jones

I stopped playing before 7.00 came out, and the game is beyond redemption thanks to 7.00. I'm baffled by the Techie "buffs," since they have been ruined.

Chase Robinson

yeah I stopped long before 7.00 too, but installed again in 7.04 or something like that. It really isn't dota anymore. I loved how cruel dota was to newcomers and noobs.

David Baker
David Baker

They added Tenacity from League (the stun reduction shit). And those 2 new "heroes" look straight out of league, and so do their kits. What a joke. Valve is so desperate for new players they have to get the LoL crowd.

Jose Ward
Jose Ward

Pick viper or buy a silver edge you retard.

Aaron Turner
Aaron Turner

Viper is indeed cancer, but I think you missed the other 2 most cancerous changes. Mirana and Morph. That 3 leap stack change is dumb and OP as shit, and Morph being able to copy his ally with 100% damage and all abilities is equally dumb and OP

Sebastian Sullivan
Sebastian Sullivan

Yes, or I could simply stop playing dota. I'll play a few matches to see if this is cancer is endurable.
didn't miss Mirana, she just happens to be a hero I can play so I don't mind her being cancer.

Ryder Bailey
Ryder Bailey

When everyone's cancer, no one is
You forgot to mention the new Pixy, Brood, SD, Venge, Slardar, SF and his goddamn stacking nuke how is that fair. There's probably a lot more but I only had time for 1 game.

Evan Diaz
Evan Diaz

Bloodthorn. Silver edge.
Also with the way accuracy works, an MKB now reduces enemy evasion to 1/4 of it's value, so it's less of a nerf than you would thing. However this is still a pointless nerf to do.

Brayden Rivera
Brayden Rivera

so I don't mind her being cancer.
You'll change your tune when you get a Mirana down to 50hp and she leaps 3 times, uses force, and then her ally forces her again. Quick trip halfway across the map

Matthew Adams
Matthew Adams

I mean can you feel the pain? I think it is your bones nonstop knocking on your brain. What else could it be? Fucking dead rabbits? NO! Newsflash you shitload drunken useless piece of shit. It is DOTA, obey to it you genderless degeneration.

Cooper Morgan
Cooper Morgan

The irony is LoL is losing players because a lot of players are fed up with the mandated meta, the shitty new heroes no one really touches, bad reworks and VUs, skins for champs who don't need more, and Riot ruining the core game with one shit idea after another. Sjw pandering also put a dent in Lol too.

Didn't they ruin Silver Edge?

Beastmaster got buffed too. Troll Warlord got some buffs too.

Oliver Roberts
Oliver Roberts

Also the whole randoming change is disgusting. And those 10 heroes that will be picked every week will 100% have cosmetic sales to them. Valve is trying to plunder as much sheckles from this dying game as much as possible.

Oliver Garcia
Oliver Garcia

Reminder this fat, balding fuck is also responsible for ruining Dota with others like Anndroid.

Noah Green
Noah Green

I'm convinced icefrog left over a year ago. You can just tell with the recent patches valve has no clue what they're doing. Not like icefrog was perfect, he was shit at balancing, but every good change in 7.07 is from removing shit like iron talon.

adding Tenacity and adding 2 new heroes that look and play right out of league is the final nail in the coffin.

Andrew Butler
Andrew Butler

Kek. I unironically love Slacks. How did he ruin dota, because he essentially gave Valve the idea for MK ult?

I don't really know what you mean. Slacks just likes lore and Techies, and Valve doesn't give a shit about lore and has destroyed Techies.

Pretty sure he's the only one in the Moonduck crew with any sort of logical sense in his brain. The others are all leftists.

I'm beyond upset right now. I got out of the dota trap before the shitfest that was 7.00 dropped, but shit like this is just taking the cake. The game was already on freefall into casual territory, so why do they even feel the need to accelerate its decline even more? I haven't even bothered to read the rest of the fucking patch notes, and already I know it's going to be nothing encouraging.

Goddamnit, man. I love dota. I love what dota used to be. Why is this kike company ruining it.

Luis Hill
Luis Hill

Why is this kike company ruining it.

Sheckles. OP's pic sums it up.

Colton Hughes
Colton Hughes

In general the game is more centered around teamfights than out farming and out maneuvering your opponents around the map. Valve is probably doing this to make it into more of a spectator "sport" than to pander to casuals.

Personally I enjoy it. Fighting in dota was always the most fun to me, but I understand wanting old dota back. I'm sure someone is working on an arcade game so people can play dota like it was before 7.00 dropped

Hudson Fisher

Competitive dota is incredibly boring to watch now.

Ian Smith
Ian Smith

In general the game is more centered around teamfights than out farming
I hate this… I rarely pick carry, but when I used to pick carry I would pay a lot of attention to farm properly. I would always stack when farming a camp and I would also buy hotd to stack ancients on my own. And when I support I always stack too.

I hate randoming. In a sports game you also don't random your position at the beginning of a match. You play the role you can play.

Michael Thomas

Nicholas Miller

also are the mod games in this good? I mean on level of WC3FT ones.

Leo Kelly
Leo Kelly

Disagree. It has way more action now.
You can still outplay the enemy by farming efficiently. The problem is if your team keeps fighting without you and losing. With the jungle nerfs, it's very hard to keep pace as a carry when you have no other option than to dodge most fights because your team fed the enemy.

axe
unkillable wall of hp
what??? erm, excuse me, you fucking noob, but at MY MMR(4.5k, motherfucker), axes buy blink >. blade mail > force.
why force? so they can get the fuck out coz once taunt ends hard carries are gonna fucking rape them if they don't get their spins.
after force you'd get a lotus orb, heart, shiva, or maybe a bkb first, but again, a decently farmed hard carry will rape axe with silver edge.

I don't know if I would get the talent, if team is shit and I'm dying a lot, maybe I'll get the 20 hp regen, if I blink well I should have double helix proccing on CD constantly anyway

False Promise visual effects now show if the hero will die or not
Meat Hook can pull Runes back to you. Mana cost is refunded if successful
Enemy units in Smoke Screen have no vision.
Null Field can now be toggled between defensive and offensive forms. Has a 30 second cooldown once toggled. Offensive form reduces enemy magic resistance.
When an enemy dies under Soul Catcher, an illusion of them is created under your control. Lasts until they respawn or it is killed. Deals 30/45/60/75% damage and takes 200% damage.
3s Tree Respawn Time (Means trees always respawn in 3 seconds)
Focus Fire now allows Windranger to move while attacking the Focus Fire target.

Day9 is a washed up faggot from SC2 who lost too many games so he decided to become an "e-sports" face for Blizzard's SC2 and Hearthstone games, Valve being the retards they are decided to hire him to host their biggest event thinking they will lure some of the blizzard drones into Dota2

He is obnoxious as fuck and doesnt know basic shit about Dota 2 so Valve hiring him is equal of hiring a random drunk guy on the street to perform a heart surgery on some loved celebrity, its gona fail hard and have insane backlash from the fans.

Ffs Joindota website even had to make a damage control thread telling people to either accept his cancerous ass or Gaben will get angry at them or something along those lines.

Added a new ability: Tree Grab. Targets a tree to use in attacks for 2/3/4/5 hits. Extends attack range to 350 range. Each hit deals 25% more base damage to units and 75% more base damage to buildings. Splashes 70% damage along the attack path. Affects buildings. Cooldown starts after bonus attacks are used. Cooldown: 40/32/24/16. Mana cost: 20/30/40/50

Tree Grab gives you a secondary ability when you grab a tree. Lets you throw your tree (resulting in your charges being empty) at a targeted unit, proccing your attack on it and splashing 70% damage onto a 250 area. Cast Range: 1000

Its a blatant HoN rip.

That shit's insane, you just hook up to troll/alch/clinkz and you fire like a machine gun. You need some cheap damage items and you become the best ganker in game. Also that free aghs upgrade is insane, just tether to lion every time he wants to ult.

A while back (3 years ago), Riot did the same thing to one guy who loved the game, and streamed tourneys when a shady company sent c&ds and threats to the guy. Riot in it's infinite wisdom decided to go with the shady company, silencing anyone told them how horrible the company was. Bulldog getting the middle finger from Valve and Gaben reminded me of that.

This change really punishes the good core players who end up in shit teams. Every once in a while I end up in a team that doesn't buy courier. No problem, I just skip one of my starting items and buy the courier myself. But now that the courier is 200 gold it is way harder for me as a mid player to buy it if my team doesn't buy one.

Jordan Ross

Necro has insanely high winrate in high mmr bracket. Sniper is a hero that only works in low mmr.

Because when he is picked in high MMR he is picked with heroes that have good synergy with him, Sniper only working in low mmr is bullshit as shown with VirtusPro who picked him in the Major Finals and won with him.

How did you read that as Bulldog getting the finger? Valve just gave him the OK to restream off DotaTV as long as he didn't commercialize it, which is completely fair.

yes because unlike other ranged carries sniper lacks mobility and consistent damage output in early/mid game, HoN did an amazing change to their Sniper hero by changing Shrapnel to a damage ability that does the following:

Launches a blast at targeted area, initial hit does 100 damage and enemies in area take 200 damage over the following 4 seconds (50 dps at lvl 4), sight given on the area lasts for 9 seconds in total.

In Dota2 sharpnel is pure garbage and Valve tried giving it more charges which is still garbage, give Sniper HoN's version of Shrapnel and improve his turn rates and he will become a decent carry.

The skill order is the really damning evidence. Because the E let's you ignore all armour, you only ever need one point in it for most of the game (unless the % chance scales like 10% per level or something silly like that). Likewise, damage mitigation doesn't help you win fights, it makes you survive longer, so it won't be the skill you max first. You may your Q first, your damage gapcloser skill.

Holy shit those changes are cancer. They're trying to morph DotA into LoL.

Sniper can do that with assassinate on aghs. The aghs actually makes you do shit damage for an ult unless you are going rapier build though. I only did that shit once because I was in some fucking retarded game where everyone was blinks/slark/super long range abilities and my sniper would just die in an instant if I actually tried autoattacking, so I ended up afk farming aghs rapiers and a deso and then suddenly started fucking shit up with my giant ults.

Normally you never do that shit unless you feel like having a silly game where a friendly alch is building you aghs.

Basically get mkb and jav I think. I'm guessing accuracy stacks additively.

That was intentional. IceFrog always hated techies and went out of his way to take forever porting that hero and nerf it into uselessness and then rebuild it into some trash shit. Remember that Techies's ultimate used to be suicide for huge damage.

Tiny is basically echo sabre or moon shards now. If you get moon shard, treads, and armlet he's already on 170% attack speed. You can also build vlad on tiny since he has fuckhuge base attack damage, covering more armor. The lack of agi can be papered over fairly well.

Bane is cancer now. He can now attack nightmared enemies without breaking nightmare and his enfeeble now gives him that damage as a bonus with the level 10 talent.

Brandon Nelson

Zachary Taylor

6.86 seemed like the critical point before the degeneracy went into total free fall. I remember I watched purges vid on the patch notes and he went "IT- ITS NOT THAT BAD GUYS! LOOK AT HOW SMALL THE SPELL AMP IS!" One thing that always sticks in my mind is how hard heroes from dota 1 get nerfed when ported, or just have their unique/strong traits gutted. Arc Warden doesn't have infinite consumables, midas nerf and cant use divine through his clone this was always gimmicky as fuck, earth spirit got sodomized, underlord's aoe root doesn't go through magic immunity.

It just shows how the game has declined and been dumbed down over the years, or the community doesn't want to adapt to anything that is actually hard to deal with. Just imagine how hard invoker or meepo would get nerfed if they got ported around now.

Landon Cruz
Landon Cruz

started long before that, The hoho-haha days were already cancer, comeback gold started it. Icefrog increased passive gold gain, you got huge amounts of gold for killing. Farming get's nerfed, randomly fighting get's buffed.

LoL is all about fighting and ignoring fighting, and that's what Dota is trying to do since years now.

i forgot what exact patch it was but it was done after TI4 when chinese invented the Deathball meta and completelly rekt the western teams, Icefraud released some retarded patch killing off Deathball meta and games turned into 50 minute snoozefests with random bullshit comebacks where early and mig game really didnt matter as long you had a hard carry like Sven/AM/Spectre to get one smoke kill on their carry and suddenly he is a comeback machine

Samuel Ortiz

And I believe that 6.86 is pass the critical point, comeback gold was in my opinion the peak. 2k for a single kill is insane, and you got that gold in a aoe.

Lincoln Campbell
Lincoln Campbell

Icefrog increased passive gold gain, you got huge amounts of gold for killing. Farming get's nerfed, randomly fighting get's buffed.

All of which, among the many other little things, was a deliberate attempt to get away from the longer structure a typical game had back in those days. Retards like a948aa would complain about "50 minute snoozefests" all the time, so patch by patch, bit by bit, icefrog tweaked things in infinitisimal amounts until 5 patches later, miraculously, average game length had drastically shortened. My theory is that 6.86 is where Valve, sensing a sinking ship directly due to these shit decisions, decided to really screw the bolts on him in a bid to chase the e-sports children audience, LoL runoff, etc etc.

From then on, it was over. By turning the burner to high instantly, they didn't give time for the frogs to accumulate to the heat. Dota is dead. The mechanics are only going to get dumber. The structure of the game is going to remain 'fast-paced action/fight centric' horseshit forevermore. Might as well be LoL tbh famaroo.

Jackson Kelly

I fail to see how Io contributes jack shit to trying to assassinate as sniper, honestly. All you get is a bit of mana. You will already have mana for repeat ulting on account of the fact that you had to build fucking aghs.

The most Io contributes is being your support bitch while you farm.

Daniel Lewis
Daniel Lewis

Incidentally, Io should probably spend his time making a difference supporting someone more useful while you are off farming items for your aghs rapier bullshit. A farming sniper is like a 4v5 until you get your shit. A farming sniper supported by Io is like a 3v5.

Honestly the whole idea sounded like some 1K mmr shit.

Level 15: Tether Grants Scepter Bonus
At level 15 IO gives aghs upgrade to everyone he is tethered too. Some heroes have good aghs upgrades, but can't farm it. Sniper's aghs is decent, but he wants to farm other items and he also doesn't have the slots to buy it. With IO on his team he get's a free aghs while he farms other items. Warlock has his ulti upgraded too, he can go straight refresher.

James Brooks
James Brooks

DotA 2's pathing is cancer too. I really, really fucking wish DotA 2 enabled manual movement instead of the pathing retardation where every so often my hero does some insane suicidal walk-around while I was trying to run and hide into the bushes.

Ah, that's new. I missed that. That's a bit superior to alch's ability to buy other people aghs. Still, that means Io has to spend time tethering the sniper who is going to stand outside the fight (on account of drop rapier = lose) instead of helping out someone who is in the thick of things.

In other news, Meteor Hammer buried in a parenthetical sidenote that it does 115 damage to regular enemies for 6 seconds, making it a 690 aoe damage item plus stun for 2.6k gold. I'm guessing this is a Treant item now, for invisible hammering into an ult. Or Bane if you feel like grabbing Aether Lens on top of the +150 cast range talent for a 1000 cast range meteor.

It's worse than randoming.
At least with randoming it's out of your control, in terms of both teams.

Free mango at the start of the game and you can choose which hero you get? Lower MMR players will probably end up getting reported for not picking mango heroes too. Randoming is also less risky meaning that the bonus will be easier to attain.

Free mango and you can more easily get a first blood or harass your lane.

Not gonna happen, Blizzard wouldn't like that.

The game was already on freefall into casual territory
Just because something is different doesn't mean that it's automatically easier.

Pretty sure they weren't just sitting there and failing for years.

The two games feel completely different.
You'd have to be blind to think it will ever be as simplified as league.
I didn't say it'd be LoL simple, just that they're moving in that direction. Also don't underestimate valve.

I have never played LoL in my life, I didn't even watch a lol match on youtube so I am not a expert on this, but isn't LoL just dota with less farming? I watched some videos that compare lol to dota and everyone says that LoL is dota with all the "painful" things removed. And in my opinion those "painful antifun" things are the fun in dota. And it looks like valve is trying to remove those to me.

Just because something is different doesn't mean that it's automatically easier.
Fairy fires and Raindrops that make it harder to die out of position doesn't make the game easier
Wells that let you TP into your jungle and create a safety barrier doesn't make the game easier
Free gold on the map, passive gold buffs, comeback gold, reduced TP prices, etc doesn't make the game easier
When I see this much level of denial I just remember the time purge went "ITS- ITS NOT THAT BAD GUYS!" during the 6.86 patch notes

I played both. LoL is DotA if all the heroes did the same exact thing different ways, minus a few ults, so they're basically all played the exact same way. It's always been teamfight centered because all the lanes where basically fair 1v1s, tanky offlaners top, mages mid, sup carry bot, junglers. EVERY GAME. All the items are just stats minus a few. There is no denying all they can do is harass eachother until the jungler comes to gank. You can't towerdive early or much at all like you can in dota because you can get 2 shotted by the tower, so you always have a saftey net. They copied dota abilities but they're all neutered to shit, like theres a werewolf who has bloodseekers (20% hp gives vision passive) but he has to be right next to you. There is no cutting down trees, trees are basically walls. The only way you can hide is in bushes (that you can stick wards in and give vision inside the entire section of bushes) so juking is neutered.

It's literally dota dumbed down in every concievable way. If you tell LoL players about invo, meepo, terrorblade, etc they shit there pants.

Blake Torres

this much level of denial
Yeah, denies are probably more brutal than they have ever been (I heard LoL is really strong on denies, so maybe that's what you're talking about). Also noobs don't buy consumables and you're way overestimating the effect of fairy fire and raindrop. The fountains add more ways of fighting around the map to the game whereas in LoL you can't teleport towards the enemy at all (and they have been getting weaker each patch which doesn't support your casualization theory).
Them replacing the generic +2 all stats with 8 talents per hero also didn't make Dota easier to learn, but you can just hell HotS at that change.

They also have been reducing many sources of gold income during the last ~10 patches, so it's not like it's a one-way street towards wealth.

I just remember when some faggot put 25 centimeters of wood up his ass out of anger during the 6.48 patch notes.

Also noobs don't buy consumables and you're way overestimating the effect of fairy fire and raindrop.
I'm not talking about 3k shitters, and you severely underestimate fires and raindrops, which I did at first to. I didn't start buying them till CLQ (6k mmr) started bitching about them, and god damn raindrops are broken. I've survived so many times with 10 hp because of raindrops, and this isn't even combined with wand or ff's. I've even seen points in his own games where he saved himself or an enemy lived at 10 hp. Combined with boosting starting health for every hero. Yeah, you can play sloppy as fuck at any decent rating with those things and survive. It also made heroes like puck and qop game losing picks.

The fountains add more ways of fighting around the map
Fountains are saftey nets. It made it harder to punish a scattered around team. It's not like TP'ing to towers which are a 30 second walk from eachother giving you enough time to pick someone off and get out. It dumbed the game down.

didn't make Dota easier to learn
Nobody gives a shit about how hard it is to learn dota except 1k shitters. This is an issue about them helping bad players who've been playing the game for years but still are shit.

They also have been reducing many sources of gold income during the last ~10 patches, so it's not like it's a one-way street towards wealth.
They nerfed the jungle, maybe nerfed the creep lanes, but they gave each rax like 2 towers worth of gold, free fucking gold on the floor every 2 minutes, made support items cheaper, made tp scrolls go from 125 to 50gp, etc. Spread the gold from 2 prime targets across the team.

Maybe indirectly, but this was all to make supporting easier for bad players who don't manager their economy. It's clear they want supports to get big flashy items (like in LoL). Instead all they did is make roamers OP. They're taking the extremeness out of the game.

Wyatt Hill

Yeah, you can play sloppy as fuck at any decent rating with those things and survive.
I think it comes down to this. Dota isn't much easier today, but it is more forgiving than it was ages ago. Shrines and ff and raindrops allow you to play careless.

Levi Wood
Levi Wood

underestimate fires and raindrops
I'm not saying that they are useless, just that they aren't "immortality for noobs" like you've been saying.
with wand
Was the game already lol when they introduced magic wands? If they introduced vanguard this patch would you cry about the game being more like LoL because now noobs don't get punished for falling asleep in the middle of a creep wave, or Wraith King because casuals can't push buttons?

It dumbed the game down.
Do you think the game would be less dumbed down if they removed TPs at all and instead had some "don't take damage for x seconds to portal home" innate ability? Or maybe just limit the TP to T2+ towers?

Nobody gives a shit about how hard it is to learn dota except 1k shitters.
You're talking about them casualizing the game, or are you not?

but this was all to make supporting easier for bad players
They just increased the costs of wards and smokes and I don't see how it's an inherently bad thing for support players to get some items as the game progresses. Just because something is different doesn't mean that it's automatically easier.

Shrines and ff and raindrops allow you to play careless.
Or to bait people when you're low hp, also magic damage across the board increased, so you could just see the raidndrop as a counterweight to that.

By the way: Denies now give the same amount of XP (25%) to the one denying the creep as they do to the guy who gets his creep denied, you used to get 70% recently and 50% without the bonus XP for the enemy before that.

reduced TP prices
Tp should cost 250 gold so only cores can afford it, fuck teleporting and fighting, and it should be on a 5 minutes cooldown while blink dagger is in a 6 minutes cooldown with a third of the normal range

Jace Brooks

I want gookclicker controls
Nobody said you can't have controls via the mouse, just that your main hero would be controlled by wasd.
Could have it so you have minions which are mouse controlled but you can still control yourself at all times via wasd.

250 gold tp's
This would make sense if you could teleport to any location on your half of the field. Maybe a 3 minute cooldown on blink, same range, but don't disable it when you take damage (encourages use for escapes only).

That change is scary and every time something new gets added you have to be against it and find some random link to some shitty game?
You shouldn't take Chi Long Qua that seriously, user. He'll whine and complain about everything because he has some rather big issues with his mood and behavior. Big enough for him to retire his entire CLQ-character and then hate himself even more because his "road to reformation" fails every time a game looks like he has more than a 10% chance of losing.

Ethan Moore

. Maybe a 3 minute cooldown on blink, same range, but don't disable it when you take damage (encourages use for escapes only).
Maybe 30 minutes you retard, why give so much time between uses, remove buyback too (^:
Go play lol then, where there's a gank attempt only once every 6 minutes because jungler needs flash to engage and core ad carry rightclicker will flash to attempt to escape.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Bloodseeker's Rupture. The visual indicator is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp on cause and effect relationship most of the plays will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Strygwyr’s passive, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from naix's literature, for instance. The dota 2 fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of that ultimate, to realise that they’re not just hard to learn, impossible to master gimmicks says something deep about DotA. As a consequence people who dislike Rupture truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the damage based on movement while affected by Rupture's catchphrase “Lie down, have a cookie” which itself is a cryptic reference to Joe Louis' epic phrase. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Strygwyr’s genius wit unfolds itself on their games. What fools.. how I pity them.

he should make safelane's t1 have 9999 magic resistance and armor to discourage early tower pushes in that lane

<Rupture is a great example – with Rupture in DOTA, you receive a DOT that triggers if you, the victim, choose to move. However, you have no way of knowing this is happening unless someone tells you or unless you read up on it online… So the initial response is extreme frustration.

Mason Moore

Penny Arcade and LoL are one of the reasons why modern gaming is trash. They both pushed this mute ban bullshit, their video has been taken down by now and the steam community forums are down so I can't find that episode right now. Anyway, Penny Arcade basically suggested that people should get automatically muted when others mute them a lot, and valve basically implemented that into dota. Fucking SJW's ruining gaming.

In league, heroes are less unique skillwise. Everyone has a gap closer basically, and the metas are much more restrictive item wise. Everyone has a 4 min cd force staff that doesn't take up a slot. In league, mana means a lot less, which ends up with more spammable, lower impact abilities casted many times rather than large impact spells.

Items in league do a lot less than the stuff in dota. If BKB was put into league, the whole community would cry loudly until it was removed, because none of their items are that strong.

The abilities themselves are largely aimed skillshots. Playing dota is more akin to a strategy game, whereas league is more like a bullet hell. League's map is noticeably smaller. You can't deny creeps, you can't creep block, you can't stack camps, etc. Heroes in league all have a teleport back to base ability with no cooldown, and no couriers.

League is fun in short bursts, but no, it's not dota with less farming.

TL;DR League is a moba, but with much lower impact abilities, is much more focused around quickly aiming and dodging spells, and abilities in general are very neutered compared to dota.
