    Viper is like a ranged ursa.
    If you get hit once by his autocast, you are fucked. There is nothing you can do except run and hope for the best. If you are too slow then you are dead and he probably dosen't even have to keep re-applying the debuff from autocast. Just laned with him as dazzle, holy crap i had so many assists.

    Are you against Doom Bringer and/or Batrider and you think you're a high priority target? Do they have a lot of single target spells? Probably Linken.

    Do they not have Doom Bringer or Batrider? Is there a lot of AoE that you think you'll get caught in? Are you a Str hero? Probably BKB.

    Pop bkb, drum or tp scroll.
    You're not dead.

    The Str hero part is completely not needed, BKB works wonders on any hero ever, Str or not.

    Yeah, but if you're Str, I would consider picking up a BKB more than a Linken. That's what I meant. :x

    Usually I play on European servers and I get the most annoying, terrible people ever who make god awful picks and choices etc, never speak in English unless they're insulting you.

    Accidentaly queue'd for US East yesterday, got a game filled with a bunch of really nice people and we had a semi-close game where both teams were fairly competent.

    Just chance?

    Think so. When EU was down recently I tried US and it wasn't that different from what you've said about European servers. Even the English part.

    I just played a game with some obnoxious italian gentlemen. The game started out well, I was playing Anti Mage, laning with zeus. Then Zeus starts diving in stupidly and feeding like fuck. What does my team do? BLAMES IT ALL ON ME.

    video ruined due to the multiple copies of the kills and deaths on the feeds, just do it once or restart...
    If you give a bit of a buffer before recording it actually just goes away, which is why that's not the case for all of the kills.
    Just was a.) too lazy and b.) more focused on getting my hands into Vegas again.

    worse than bots

    humans can't calculate with nanosecond precision when to start attacking so that their projectile hits the creep in the right time

    Depends, unfair bots surely last hit everything, but easy/normal miss sometimes and are deniable.

    Yeah it's somewhat frequent to see very low numbers for denies each game. Sometimes enemy heroes even set you up for a perfect last hit, because they can't time the deny right.

    Yeah I hate seeing players beg for accommodations. Reports are one thing, but I've seen players say like "good support accommodate me." If you need to tell others to accommodate you probably don't deserve the accommodation.

    After playing a game of Clinkz, he is such a pain in the ass. He is so squishy all the time, even after BKB. I mean, it helps, but you're still not breaking 2000k natural HP. Laning with people who have half a brain to harass you make him completely not fun. You'll spend more time standing in exp range hoping you can stay of level than last hitting. His attack animation is awful. For some reason I want to play him again because I feel like I'm letting the downsides of the character beat me.
    When I was playing him, NP ulted and I already lost half my health.

    its true that sometimes they dont deny, but they are bots, sometimes do nothing, sometimes they chain stuns and skills perfectly (i cant count how many times i have been killed by laguna blade while in air because tiny perfectly ava+tossed me)

    Yeah, even though I'm only half decent at his stuns, he's a lot of fun.

    Edited:

    Am I the only one that actually denies? I usually have like 20-30 denies at the end of the game as any role (Unless we're losing our lane) while everyone else has around 5

    that feeling when your Riki was AFK long enough to get a abandon before coming back, your tiny was kill-whore who made sure to kill-shots all your targets, your Pudge couldn't land a hook if the enemy was fucking standing still, and your Veno never fucking warded ever...

    And you carried them to victory as a Batrider anyways.

    Well sure but that doesn't really mean he didn't know the game would have a very steep learning curve. I don't think any of the valve videos really show that. All he was looking for friendly teammates to help him learn the game, he didn't get any.
