    About the beta-key spreading.
    For every key they send to anybody, a single Russian gets one too. It feels like this anyways.
    Also, any theories who's coming this patch into the hero roster?
    Tuskarr and Wisp
    IMO

    Edited:

    Based on "Cold Fusion"
    Tuskarr's the only cold-related hero left, Wisp is just a wild guess because of Tether kind of fusing you to whoever you use it on.

    Bane probably. He got a texture redesign last week. Maybe TA/PA/Gyro/Lone Druid?

    The test client is coming out tomorrow, so it'll be interesting to see how new heroes are factored into that.

    None that I know of. Borderless windowed is just windowed mode that takes up your whole screen, so maybe you try to find the difference between windowed and fullscreen.
    to some people playing windowed lowers your fps and stutters

    Only issue I have with borderless windowed is that if I click anything other than the game (two screens) such as a chat, once I'm in a match I have to open and close the menu, or else the mouse won't stay locked to the game.

    I go into a game this morning wanting to play a hard carry but this guy instapicks sniper. So I opt for a semi-carry and go potm. First thing I do is politely ask for mid and heres the response. He starts "Lol-ing" and then gives me a lecture on how sniper is the best mid.

    Then I see if hes even anywhere close to a decent player and I get this :

    Because to his knowledge 4 slippers of agility is the best starting item build. He even buys a 5th but leaves it at the fountain.
    He continues to get raped 4 times over by a veno and then starts his core build

    It looks like around $30, from the Steam trading forums. I haven't been keeping track of them too much, but I saw a lot of people trading them for Skyrim/MW3 copies a few weeks ago. Now it seems to have gone down.

    If you're going to buy it, definitely don't give someone money directly. Trade a game or games through Steam trading, which is almost impossible to get scammed through unless you're an idiot.

    However, I would personally wait about 14 hours, until Dota 2's update tonight. There have been rumors of open beta, with the massive server maintenance and test client released today being possible evidence. You wouldn't want to spend money and have it be wasted a few hours later! If there's nothing, though, might as well get it. Who knows when it would happen then.

    Had a game where I went 1/4/9 as Dazzle and we won in about 25 minutes.

    Thought it was gonna be a loss at first because we had an Axe, and Lina started to go mid at the same time as Zeus.
    But then Lina stopped and came top with me, and up'd the courier right after I bought it, as well as warding with me, and Axe was a total bro and didn't die once.

    All in all it went much better than I expected.

    It isn't worth anything, it didn't cost anyone a penny. The only "value" it has is judged by the persons patience, especially since open beta is rumoured to be so close.

    Just because someone got something for free doesn't make it valueless...

    There are many people that come across things worth thousands of dollars at garage sales and shit, I know that's very different than this situation but you're wrong.

    I wonder if Valve will go with the same model as for TF2, as in 100% the same, where very few items are impossible to obtain with paying/trading. Though it all will be just cosmetical, so who cares actually.

    I would kill for a nature's profit outfit. Heck, a medic coat for witch doctor or a solid snake outfit for bounty hunter would be the best thing since sliced tango.
