    ok honest question and I want as many opinions as possible

    is pudge hard to play
    He's not hard but I don't think I'm at the level where I just have to roam the map and hook/know all the surprise spots because I'm not that consistent yet. Either way, I've only played him twice.

    I keep playing inhouses to try to learn Brewmaster more and keep getting games where I can't find a good use for my ult. Every fight is basically over by the time I've stomped, hazed, and used any actives I have, so I can never practice microing his splits.

    And then you have those people that fail gank 24/7 and fall behind in farm and experience.

    Mid ganking depends on hero and player. If player knows how to gank, he can do it with pretty much any hero, while others might not want to do so as Drow/OD/etc , because they'd rather farm and carry later.

    True, mid is most suitable for ganks, but if you really want it, you could ask some specific hero to roam when mid doesn't want to /can't gank. Sidelaning Night Stalker after 6th for example, Crystal Maiden, etc. Those heroes with some levels can gank very efficiently, and while you'd prefer mid Night Stalker ganking every time it's night, a sidelane one roaming a lot isn't that bad.

    Hell, have you guy ever seen roaming Morphling ? I've seen it on Purge's stream and it was quite good.

    CM is not a good ganker on the fact alone that a dry slug is faster than she is.

    Tranquil boots give her some nice MS boost and Slow+Snare is rather good for ganks.

    The problem was in both games we could set up kills very easy but every time they would escape with very little hp. If we just had some help it would have been free kills. I don't understand why someone wouldn't want to help with that.

    Someone might've not noticed. Tunnel Vission is quite common when it comes to games like these, because besides global awareness there is also micro-managment like last-hits or microing.

    We yelled at them several times that there were easy kills at bot. They told us "farm was more important." Then they proceeded to do nothing with the farm.

    Guys, does Quelling Blade work off total damage, or only base damage ?

    Edited:

    Rather obvious conclusion, isn't it ? People could use lectures about Dota if they are going to play like that.

    Doing it wrong. You need to make a giant conga line. Make them all follow the next one in line, make entire map long conga line from Radiant to Dire.

    had quicker, 20 min, two of my team left then the enemy team just pushed and won :P

    also, had another game where i was romping as ursa, enemy shadow demon kept calling ursa op "cause he can take out a whole team by himself"
    isnt that what a carry does?

    Guys, honestly. Does quelling blade % work off Base Damge or Total Damage ? It's really bugging me somehow and right now I am a bit busy to check it in Dota myself. (Have to watch all HP movies, Dead Poet Society, 30 Door key and Labors of Sisyphus, then work them into "School Motive in movies and litearture" work.)

    Should be total damage. It would make more sense.

    That's the entity error noise in Source, though Tinker says it if he dies.

    If people leave before 15 mins, the game won't count, except for the person abandons. The team without the leaver won't get a win, though if the team with the leaver wins, they will get the win.

    Would it now ? It's mostly early game item that you sell as soon as you need item slot (unless enemy team has Tequoia). Increasing damage against creep by % of total damage seems a bit too nice against creep-controlling heroes, especially since it's much cheaper than Hand of Midas.

    Actually I read the OP when I first started getting serious about DOTA.

    Helped me a real lot. Even though DOTA was my first moba, not a single one of my friends ever told me not to autoattack creeps. But the OP did.

    Zeus and pugna make a good combo. Makes those early ganks really easy. Decrepify then lighting strike and they are almost completely dead.
