    Unless you want to make it so the range display is only visible while you're pushing the button, then I think you're screwed.
    Why not do a keybind?

    "+range" "dota_range_display xxxx"
    "-range" "dota_range_display 0"
    "bind <key> +range"

    Well... yeah. Also technically it'd be
    Code:
    alias "+range" "dota_range_display xxxx"
    but I was going purely from memory and didn't actually look anything up until now.

    I'm well aware, been playing LoL for almost a year now. (Yes I'm aware that they're very different games, but the communities are both shit.) Been reading guides watching videos and such for the last few months. I'm excited to have more than one team comp. and as stupid as it sounds the noise for last hitting makes me smile every time.

    Yeah I know, was just a bit of a joke.

    Also to spit in my face my internet is down for 2 weeks apparently. Otherwise I'd just virtual machine it.

    You could just mute/report the people who are problematic, that way if you get a teammate who doesn't want to type, but isn't abusive on voice, you can still hear them.

    Dota2 is realy good, they realy did a good work recreating dota.
    I played two matches and they were pretty fun. The first one was kinda good, but most of our team had no idea what to do so they left, and around the end I was the only one who stayed.
    The second one was better, but someone in our team left around the start and it kinda ruined the match for us but it was still a good one.
    I lost both matches but atleast I had fun.
    And I was lucky enough to not find any "pros" in those matches, thank god.

    yeah, that's what I do (in other games), stuff like "you shouldn't build that item, dude"

    then I get called a troll and get reported for flaming

    I had a game earlier with Nam(Furion). Pudge called mid and Nam was jungling, so I took solo top(Dire side)

    I actually did really good (I played Clinkz, ofc), which surprised me. I died like 2 times total in laning, once when I went for a creep kill and got shackled/burrowstriked(Rhasta/Sand King), and once when Pudge missed an MIA and Night Stalker came up and dove me.

    Rest of the game I only had 1 death while I was farming the neutral camp closest to the Radiant base, because Bounty Hunter tracked me right before I went stealth and the entire enemy team came at me.

    The funniest part of the whole game, though, was Sand King building Battle Fury and Vladimir's, and then saying his team was retarded.

    TL;DR, I learned that Clinkz can solo a side lane in a game with a dumb/troll Sand King on the enemy team.

    E: And we won.

    Unless you've left a fuckton of games, you're fine. It takes more than 1 abandon to get low priority, and I'm sure you'll be fine with the steam servers down right now anyways.

    Well if you're playing clinkz vs an sk, it's pretty hard to lose lane, especially since hes a melee and you have an absolutely amazing orb.

    So is there currently some form of "if you're experienced, you play with experienced people" ranking system?

    After reading some of the comments on here a lot of you complain that people leave or just generally play crap.

    There is a ranking system, but my understanding is that it isn't very good.

    Yeah, there is an MMR (matchmaking rank) system. I have about 30ish games won, and I get put with people who have from 10 to 45 games won. People on the first page of the Watch tab have between 350 and 500 games won generally. The system's hidden, so no one's quite sure how it works yet.

    Figured they had rhasta mid.

    I've never played wg3 dota so I've never had a chance to see the capabilities of techies and I'm still scared of the day when they add him to dota 2.

    Oh okay that's a relief but it would be nice if it gets a bit more precise.

    What would be really great is if everything affected your rank. If they could somehow score how good of a player you are and not how many times you win a team based game then you wouldn't be able to really be dragged down that much.

    I never really thought techies was THAT big of a problem everyone makes him out to be. If you have good enough map awareness and some wards out you can basically tell where he is and what he is doing.

    Avoid popular paths (straight down the river), Ward the runes, have a magic immune hero walk through the runes every often and keep his levels down and he's no problem. Squishy heros just need to be harassed a lot and not fed and they aren't a big deal. Just annoying.

    Yeah that's the issue with the current ranking system. When I first started playing I got lucky and played on teams that where way better than the opposing team, even with the fact that I was nothing more than luggage. Before long I started ending up playing games with people who where way above my skill level.


    I've never played wg3 dota so I've never had a chance to see the capabilities of techies and I'm still scared of the day when they add him to dota 2.
    I imagine that the Techies is one of those heroes that can destroy people that are inexperienced, but as soon as said people learn how to ward he becomes useless.

    Actually Techies land mines go thru magic inmunity and I never placed mines in the rune spot, that's waaaay to obvious.

    With Techies you abuse the fog to your advantage, you make the enemy fear the fog, fear to step in a non-warded spot, to walk without necronomicons or gem. He "turtles" the game to the advantage of his team thus making carries live a happy life of farming 24/7.

    This is confirmed. There were a few cases where people won their first 20-odd games, and were ranked so high that they could never find a game.

    I recently got the "Congratulations!" email from Valve :buddy:

    I'm terrible at this game. I've won once out of about 15, and that was farming mid as bloodseeker. Am I doing it wrong?

    I just did my first bot game, was really rough at first. But once I got used to last hitting it smoothed out and I won. Was only behind by like 10 cs at the end.

    Okay, I was just saying what I know because all you can see are wins on other peoples' profiles.

    Thanks for mentioning losses, I learned something new today. I wonder, though. My W:L was 1:1, so my questions are "did that guy with 45 wins have 45 losses? Did that guy with 10 have 10 losses? Or more, and he had a more even number of total games as us?"
