    Cheap because you only need 180 gold to counter him.

    Unless you're a hard carry, practicing with bots to realize a hero is so fucking dumb. I'm not saying you should play a normal without knowing a hero, but the bots themselves are idiots. Oh they are pushing our top lane? Welp lets all go bot.

    Just emailed Valve asking if they could provide me with any ideas about the release order of some of the heroes, and how the heroes go through the development process, also asked about what stage Visage and Slark(two favorite heroes) are in in development. Hoping for a reply soon. :optimistic:

    Any tips for countering Huskar? He always rapes my shit in middle lane.
    Huskar is so easily countered, stuns, silences, disables, most heroes can counter him.

    Everyone just kinda runs at huskar and expects to cause more damage than he can heal without doing anything but autoattacking.

    I was Huskar in Dire team at botlane soloing against lina and ES.
    Killed them both 6 times in 10 mins while they didn't kill me at all, and I was lvl 11 when they were 6.
    Don't fight Huskar if you don't have the damage to finish him off.

    Lost again. Not really mad, though, because we put up a really good fight, and it wasn't an outright steamroll.

    I blame it almost entirely on our Zeus, though, who refused to let Lich babysit Void, called Drow bad when she was doing better than anybody else, called Lich a noob for not going after a low health guy in a 1v5, and generally just called everybody bad while having the least kills and most deaths in the game.

    Bleh, team of 4 retards.

    Axe doesn't get blink dagger, demands me to give him speed boost all game so he can try to initiate against a pebbles and pudge. vengeful decided to go carry and ended up with treads and manta, fed 2-11-3 or something. Windrunner was half decent but kept standing still and pudge hooked him at least twice a minute. and i had no idea what dragon knight was playing as, I think it was support but he had a bunch of +damage items.

    I mean I'm bad by most peoples standards but these guys were so much worse than me.

    I did enjoy playing as Dark Seer though, his ult is phenomenal. Got me up to 20 or so assists. Oh wells.

    Are you/your team there at 0;00 ? It's common practice to cover those with either heroes or units so that as soon as they spawn, they are grabbed.

    I think i do worse with bots on the easist difficulty. The enemy aren't Genius. They co ordinate with eachother well- but they don't coordinate with ME!!!


    Doesn't stun when they are supposed to. So i Begin to spin/blink/powerup/whatever. After this is done, They might decide to stun.

    I had this issue, it was because I spent too much time wandering around trying to get kills and didn't stay near my lane

    Talking about HoN, all of /r/HeroesOfNewerth switched to DOTA2 after $2 (S2) made the /r/HoN moderator censor anything bad against S2 or HoN, lol.

    Part of the reason I love having a range indicator on. I have it set to Blink Dagger/Experience range, so I know how far away I can blink/be while still getting exp from a creep kill.

    Edited:

    Apparently my losing streak has dropped me down to low skill level.

    Anybody wanna be a bro and play a few games with me, to help me get back to medium, at least?

    This happened to me, I'm soloing against 3 carries as a support and winning, then suddenly my team starts shitting on itself and within a few minutes we get bulldozed- like every match. Nobody communicates and everyone does their own thing, the closest thing I've gotten to communication was a spanish speaking dude that just kept calling me a perro :(

    It's just that they're more of the same, and instead of actually talking about builds/how it affected your game, people talk about "how good they are" or "how bad their teammates were", as opposed to "jesus my rapier really stood out", "that riki should've done this" and such.

    Speaking of items and crap
    15 minutes in I already had Arcane Boots and Blink Dagger.
    Lycan was their mid, I guess, but he was only there for like 2 or 3 minutes tops, the rest of the time he was in their jungle, so I had a piss easy time with mid.
    I only bought Shiva's right at the end, 'cause I wasn't sure if it was gonna be over as soon as it was, plus I used it while we were fountain diving.
