    Weird game. I was Sylla and at some point I was 5/0 . Awesome lane, Bounty had to leave it, Dazzle died a couple more times, even ganking Axe, though he did kill me once or twice.

    After that I proceed to farm a bit for my radiance. Get relic.

    Now the weird stuff starts. We are losing every teamfight. If it's not a skirmish with us being the initiators, we lose it. Every single one. We had Viper who bought tanky items, I had my Bearform and we still died in seconds, mostly to BH who somehow farmed Battlefury and Desolator.

    I understand losing a game by slowly losing the advantage you gained from early game, but from 5/0 to barely 9/9 on Sylla. I am still shocked.

    1042860 - check it. I would love to know how we dropped the ball.
    Going off this description I'm going to say Bounty Hunter stood up and farmed like a boss. Did he get ganked at any time after he left the lane?

    Didnt quite notice. But we had Pudge, CM and Windrunner. Aside from BKB (Pudge ulting through) he was probably disabled most of the time.

    Edited:

    Why does no one play bane?
    Because I don't random him, duuuh.

    Same reason as Anti-mages. Quick-farm.

    Doesn't really fit in many team compositions, I think. He's generally thought of as a 1v1 hero (despite having the ability to nullify 1 heroes auto-attacks, sleep another and ulti a third...).

    he's considered 1 vs 1 hero because he's a single target spell whore, if you do sleep - q - ult - W you are most likely going to win any 1 on 1


    and to be honest he's a really good mid, start with soul ring, spam the hell out of W and then gank with the combo REW

    Sleep is brutal with Mirana's arrow in lanes. Really fun lane to play.

    Well, true, he is brutal disabler, but unless you can get a proper initiation, then in teamfight your usability ends with first stun, unless you have BKB.

    I didn't have BKB.

    Went 26/3 as riki and I got some great farm. Still lost. (Bot lane fed me 6 kills)

    Edited:

    Probably one of those life mysteries.

    I once had a game where as pudge I had 9 kills within the first 15 minutes or so. But our team was just so bad. Puck fed bot lane all game because no one wanted to help him (Except for me. I got most of my kills from that lane.) Juggernaut took 30 minutes to get Power Treads and Perseverance WITH FREE FARM AT TOP. Crystal Maiden on our team seemed to know what she was doing and helped jugger even get a couple kills and then proceeded to help me out with ganks. But we eventually lost due to our carries having absolutely nothing.

    Also I've come to the conclusion that venomancer is the only support I can play decently. I need to find more. I just find them so squishy and don't enjoy playing them.

    PHEW. I was trying to get a dota 2 beta key for a friend, almost got scammed.

    I was careful enough to not fall into this guy's trap.
    I googled his steam name, locke16k, and I came up with this:

    Ugh..I just saw a Lifestealer on my team build battlefury and desolator (no armlet no assault cuirass no mjollnir) and then he proceeded to not do anything all game. He thought those were enough items and decided to stop farming completely and just hide in people all game. Razor did well early game then fed 14 deaths somehow.

    And I was 13-5-17 pudge fucking ganking all these lanes constantly. I don't know what else I could have done. Oh well. Just DOTA single queue players being awful.

    Any team with half a brain will go for Enigma first. I read a guide on playdota talking about your initiations with the blinks, and it pretty much said you don't want to stick directly with your team, but rather in a horizontal line parallel from your team or on a cliff above and away from the enemy to get a good black hole initiation.
    i.e., like these pictures:

    I play Bane. He's one of my most played heroes, but he doesn't fit into lots of team comps unless your team knows how he works.

    Encountered my first feeder, he'd run up to towers and autoattack until he died and bought back and repeated if he could. Then out of nowhere an argument spills out from the enemy team and they all quit angrily and we win by default. Thank god for angry teammates.
