    Ugh, lost to a team that we crushed early because they actually had carries and we had to have a Lesh carry (All Random) who clearly didn't know how to play his hero at-fucking-all
    I almost won when I got their Rapier as Axe, but there's only so much an Axe can do 50 minutes in against a Clinkz and an Alch who both have BKBs

    Edited:

    Also best way to reverse a loss:
    Aggro enemies diving into your base into fountain with Beserker's Call and take their rapier

    i cant wait for custom maps and gamemodes, that will add a complete new flavor to dota 2
    I sort of want to see someone create a faithful reproduction of the entire warcraft 3 campaign.

    That and the boss battles map. That shit was so much fun.

    I'm still annoyed that this was flagged as not meeting their guidelines months and months ago.



    I'd have loved something along these lines.

    Just wrote this Email to the DOTA2 Team.

    Hi,

    I really enjoyed WarCraft 3 Custom Games, and still do, 11 years on - the sheer range of game-modes that could be created with the world editor, even by 15 year old's, that lead to the Dota we all enjoy today - The way the custom games list worked was fantastic, although I'm sure a source-esque lobby wouldn't go amiss, and the fact that you could instantly download new maps from the server in a second made it so open-to-all and loved by everyone.

    Surprisingly, hardly any of the content, apart from the map layout and scripts/ triggers/ properties, was actually custom. The engineer hero in original DOTA was simply a re-purposed sniper from the Human side in WC3, scaled slightly larger, with a glow. Brewmaster was a leftover Pandaren asset from WC3, again scaled up with a glow. The same sniper could be found as a unit in a WC3 version of RISK, just this time scaled much smaller to fit on the map resembling the earth, and with hundreds of other identical units surrounding it. Zeus from DOTA was originally a dwarf with a hammer, that was similarly used to represent Gimli in a WC3 version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy (which took hours to complete with a fully party, perma-death optional, on a single map designed to represent Middle Earth spiralling back and forth across the map).

    If WC3 didn't have custom maps functionality it would have maybe lasted 3-4 years tops, with hardcore players going on an additional 2 years or so. Instead, the # of players on Battle.net was consistently high for around 10 years (100k+ concurrent users for at least 6 years) until people exploited game hosting to create bots full of empty games that virtually made it annoying and time-consuming to find a game with actual players, at which point the game's popularity decreased.

    Throughout this entire timescale I have re-purchased WC3, an old game by anyone's standards, five times, and re-installed it countless times. I'd say I consistently played it every 3 months for around 100 hours over a week or two, then taking a break from it again before realizing how great it was again and returning to it, to find yet more original games being added. I never even played Stock WC3, single-player or multi-player and still haven't to this day. A friend introduced me to custom games and I got hooked and have probably racked up more time on it to date than any game I've ever owned.

    I think with the route you seem to be taking by introducing these small and fun custom game-modes and so on, and looking at the customization available in the likes of TF2, that custom games might not be too far off, and I really hope this is the case.

    I honestly think by introducing custom maps/ game-modes/ scripting and opening it to all players-turned-developers, you will open Dota2 to becoming 'the ultimate party game' - and probably keep a consistent 200k concurrent users for the next 10+ years, provided the tech is updated and refined (WCIII has not had patches in a long time, hence the problem with the bots and empty games).

    If the bot problem had not arisen, I'm sure the population of players wouldn't have dropped, so making sure that douchebags can't do stuff like this for the sake of infamy would be important.

    Without Custom Games, DOTA2 itself wouldn't exist and this is why I love it so, and hope that DOTA2 can implement this functionality in the near future.

    Interested to hear your thoughts.

    It was based off older models and textures of brood as I recall.

    There was an updated version that had some fixes but it vanished.

    My urge for custom games is flaring up again. Some Battle for Troy or Helms Deep Defense, maybe even Life of a Peasant Resident Evil edition, RISK, or perhaps simply a standard game of Stronghold, Green TD, Battleships or Wintermaul TD will suffice.

    Unfortunately, none of this is possible on WC3, because of the bots situation, so I'm just enjoying the feeling that my imagination conjours when I think about those custom games, re-invisioned in DOTA2.

    Parasite! Hungry Felhounds! Battleships/tanks were basically DOTA but with ships/tanks and an insane arsenal of weapons and multiple upgradeable tanks. It was fucking awesome. They were all fucking awesome.

    Is it common knowledge that if you place a ward on the stairs next to Dire's ancient camps, the vision is completely off to the side of the ward?

    Yes, because the way that God forsaken staircase works is that if you're above it you can't see shit down it, unlike every other stair in the game. Obviously you can't see up it either if you're not up there (like every other stair in the game).

    I played all random and got Medusa. I'm not too good of a carry player but I thought it shouldn't be too bad, me and ogre magi got a quick first blood with a DD rune. But then he was autoattacking creeps. I told him to stop and go stack + pull so I could farm the lane. He told me he was helping me get last hits...

    You'd probably want to swap out a support or the semi carry for the jungler rather than the ganker (who I'm guessing is your mid)

    (I'm not saying that a jungler is required btw)

    My latest pet peeve about people in games.

    "and you only have bfury and sny at 40 mins gg"

    does nobody ever stop and think "hmm maybe this game hasn't been going so well, so it's understandable this juggernaut hasn't got the full build"-

    nope, gotta flame, gotta be an asshole.
