Although I will miss Urna Swarm on Nyx Assassin, his Spiked Carapace spell makes him even more annoying to fight against.
Can't wait until he is added into the game.
4 min Hand of Midas, did I meet the quota?
We lost that game somehow.
I always get Arcane Boots on Pudge, every game.
It's the beta for Dota 2 beta.
This info needs to be in the OP, these questions pop up way too often.
No, seriously, every Wednesday it's going to be patched and applied every Thursday into the main game with fixes.
I'm sorry, I just have to share this victory with someone other than myself.

3 guys down (they DCed/went AFK and never came back), 5-10 minutes in I die, me and Veno are pretty pissed (etcetc) so we decide to play defensive by TPing and protecting our remaining towers. We score loads of kills and quickly level up, getting all of the high-level items very quickly.
Eventually, we split, he takes Mid and I take Top. We destroy both the lanes within minutes so I go push Bot. Destroyed that lane with Manta in minutes again. 30 minutes in, we both push against the base and all 5 enemy heroes and we completely decimate them. T'was the best game I've ever had.
Dryvnt and I are pretty good
This, this is pubstomp. Broodmother, she is great at surviving, how did she do so bad? Shadow Shaman, the hell, he is current meta because of his push+CC. AM and Ursa, neither managed to farm at all?
No offense, you won because of your superior skills, but I think that such matches don't speak much of the players, more so of the pub reality of little coordination and one sided games past first blood / couple kills.
I, for one, just had a game as Omniknight.
Our team was pushed to base and overwhelmed by enemy's Nature's Profit, annoying Brood, Bane that kept sleeping me, pudge that got 5 kills early and Huskarr who also did well in lane and early boots that saved his ass.
We had SK, Alch, OD, POTM and Me. I knew that if we take this late-game we will win and the only thing to worry about will be Furion. My team kept saying that we've lost, they had too much power and could pick us 1 by one. I too knew that 1 by 1 we are dead, but every complete teamfight had been won, yet my teammates refused to believe.
At one point, I noticed that we are doing the exact thing I hoped for. We are late game farming close to base (thanks to Nature's Profit ultimate!) and I worry about TP scrolls and Furion.
We even wrecked their Rosh attempt with 3 or so guys. Huskar, Furion, BM, they were locked out due to my ultimate, Pudge couldn't finish people off due to my Repel and heal disassembled BM's army. Skadi + Degen Aura = noone could escape me and SK and chase after my team.
Games like this, they are worth playing. There were tears shed by my team and laugh of the fed Pudge, there was BM hunting, then wishing it could hunt without facing impossible odds. There was Outworld Destroyed who seemed useless until he ulted team of almost no-intelligence heroes. Blood, sweat, hope and miracles.
You might think "lol wtf, who takes a game srs like that".
Believe me, video games are much more fun if you play them like a person, rather than anonymous entity. I mean both emotional and manner-wise.
I agree. Pub stomps can be fun if you get some fun early game but are just quick wins that don't mean anything.
But the games where you are getting rocked and have a major comeback or the game is going to be decided on one final team fight..those are the good games.
For example I had a game where the enemy picked AM to counter me when I was playing Skeleton King and I couldn't farm for shit and I actually died several times within 20 minutes or so..But I kept farming. Kept helping my team get kills..I notice that viper has a 20 minute Manta + Power treads on the enemy team and I'm just dreading fighting him..But I don't give up. I keep farming and killing. I get in a good team fight and I gain 3 levels and help kill nearly all of them in that fight. By 35-40 minutes I had armlet + assault cuirass and was doing insanely fast damage and I decided to take Aegis so I could live forever. We end up winning and they end up yelling at each other and yelling at AM and Viper for not carrying.
I know, close games are funner. I was just kidding when we said "We are pretty good"
If playing as Axe, you get him to say "YOU GET NOTHING! GOOD DAY SIR!"
your job here is done.
When its a close game and I lose, I feel happy about it. When I lose because someone dc's or feeds, I don't like it.
Slowly learning how to play as Sniper (there's nothing to learn btw). He's a good and easy class, got a 3 win strike, finished one of the games with 12/1/1. I think that's pretty good for a noob who lost 5 games in a row.
from na'vi's facebook.
Dem cowboy boots
Scored a 20 or so minute ultra.
Just realized that daedalus is a crossbow. looked like a badass shield to me
First Tinker game
it was a long and hard process but I finally got my friend to stop pretending that he was an amazing carry/ganker and try some support
only played one game with him after he cleaned up so far but he seemed to be pretty decent at it, much better than when he attempts to carry
I got my first commendation!
I feel fuzzy inside.
People seem to forget that supports are for. Heres your straight up goal for the game : Do as much as you can by helping your carry without feeding. If you don't get any kills but a shitton of assists you are rocking. If you even save 1 person's life during a fight you are owning.
First game Doom Burger. Chomping away. Little did you know best creep is ghost. Spent 10 minutes trying to find a wolf, made 3.2k while doing so.
Welcome to Doom Burger, home of the Doom Burger. Can I take ya' orda'?
Logged quite a few hours, but I haven't figured out how to invite people to the test.
Checked the gifts area but didn't see it...has that time to do so expired?
