    I think its lively and better than any other of those completely bored commentators.
    I completely agree and it's not like Tobi just spits out random crap when he is casting; when there is a team fight he calls it perfectly play by play. I try watching some of the Premier League matches the other day and it was unbearable. The commentary added no value to the cast because they they were dull.

    He called the final game between EHOME and Scythe during the International tournament perfectly, especially one of the final team fights. I like how he breathes life into the serious atmosphere that Dota provides.

    I was almost carrying (accidentally) as bloodseeker, but half the team just had to be farming at the middle of the map while theirs pushed for the win

    Just played my first game as Sand King..Pretty fun but need a decent team to do anything with him.

    Also his voice is fucking amazing.

    What's the deal with Silencer silencing his own teammates with the aura and ultimate? Is he broken?

    I really suck at this. I have no problems killing creeps but as soon as I'm anywhere near another hero, bot or otherwise, I'm toast. I can try anything, any attack, but they always seem to get the upper hand. Basically, shit's impossible.

    As far as I know that's pretty much the only reason. Just Valve acknowledging that Half-Life exists, I guess.

    I've played as several, and so far I suck at all of 'em. My K/D is somewhere around 0/∞.
    I guess I'll just have to keep playing until I find a hero that I'm not completely awful with. If you have any newbie hero recommendations, let me hear 'em!

    Demon witch and just try and target squishy heroes. Remember things like the natural magic defense heroes have, dont think your spells are going to do that exact ammount of damage they say they do(25% all the time, apart from any other item they have on). Your Finger of Death says it does 500 damage but it actually does 375 damage to Heroes, Earthspike does 195 damage, etc.

    Last time I played Razor I ended the game with like 30 cs and a loss because
    1. My lanemate was Lich but he still kept trying to steal my creeps even after I asked him to stop
    2. It took half a second to a full second after the whip actually hit for the creeps to take damage, and it kept changing, so it was hard as hell to time it right.

    Can't believe nobody mentioned Skeleton King yet. One active stun, three passives. Just manage your mana a bit, don't get Vampiric Aura early because of lane pushing and don't go full-on rambo.

    Who wants to see the worlds worst invoker?

    He rushed a vlads and maxed exort first only to use forge spirits. Rarely ever cold snapped, and never did he ever use ice wall or sun strike. And when he finally got wex, he cancels channeling spells and lets other team live.
    That guy just sucked ass. Exort Quas invoker is so op its broken.

    playing warlock, get refresher, never need to use it because entire enemy team is dead and mega creep are already wrecking the ancient

    Sometimes, shitty opponents make the game less fun. Only good players on that team were Rhasta and Pudge. Everyone else was literally spoon-feeding us kills.

    who the fuck gets the aura before the mana gain laning anyways


    don't forget it gives you 600 mana if you get a kill at level 4 which helps a fuckton as necro


    and it's % based so the only thing it's gonna do early is push your lane
    Lol I do, turn on dota_range_display 1000 and keep them in it 24/7.

    So I have dota_range_display 1200 in my autoexec for experience range, so I can know how close to be if I'm low but still want to stay in the lane and get some XP.

    And then in a game as Tiny a little bit ago, I realized Blink Dagger's range is 1200.
    Dual purpose range ring ftw.

    Shit that's a good idea, just added that to my autoexec.

    What are some other good commands to put in there? I already have right click deny and range finder.

    i wouldn't get used to them if i were you. I'm pretty sure all of them will eventually become "sv_cheats 1" commands eventually.

    No.
    Chances are, eventually, there will be an option to have range indicators when you use something, so you actually know how far you can cast it, and it'll change/only show up when you're trying to cast a spell.

    Ursa is such a bullshit hero, god damn, every match I'm in where someone's playing him he destroys everyone left and right, mid game it gets even worse, just being in the same lane is suicide.

    If you can even make it to end game you can't leave spawn.

    Make sure that your team has a good stun and check rosh at 7 minutes in. If he hasn't tried for rosh yet, ward rosh.

    Bane is like one of the best heroes imho, even if his abilites are all single target they are amazing. Lifesteal with pure 300 damage etc


    You either
    A. Lock the carry, ult the support and have your team burn everyone else
    B. Enfeeble the carry, lock the support and ult the highest priority after the carry

    and my personal favorite

    lock Dazzle and completely break his entire purpose in the game
