    A friend and I are thinking of trying to do some amateur shoutcasting for some games we find on the Watch tab. I've always wanted to do shoutcasting, and I'm hoping I can gain a better understanding of item/hero synergies.

    Would anyone be interested in hearing them when we do them?

    I could probably listen to them for a little. I like listening to people talk for some reason

    I was thinking of doing player behaviour analysis. Why people act as they do in games, why they pick, why they respond in particular ways and, of course, game analysys itself (it's fun, even in private).

    While I think I've got the will and time, my microphone quality is just below "first timer youtube kid". It's MK1 Fatality headset microphone, anyone got any tips on getting stand-alone good microphone ? Brands, price ranges?

    You've got to work on those last-hits man. Void wants last-hits so bad, he went blind and bald for them.

    Based on your score, you didn't contribute anything to your team and got carried hard. As for the build, i usually build poor man's shield, MoM, battle fury, with luxury items being BKB, butterfly, deadalus, and MKB.

    Who watched Navi vs Eg game yesterday? They picked vengeful spirit as a hard carry (i know dendi was taking a dump on them with invoker but still) and built sange and yasha on crystal maiden?!

    Some people are able to gain xp, these people got the beta key in a specified period of time, I'm pretty sure it was early on. Purge gains xp I believe and so does Tobi(?)

    SOOOOOOoooo I just played my first game as Ursa and didn't so terribly well, ended up lik 8-14-11. Zues kept wrecking my shit in team fights.

    But there was this whiny asshole who popped up first time I used my mic. Here's how it went down.

    Me: (Talking to our awesome Bloodseeker, who just ganked Zues, saving me.) Thanks for the save man.
    Ahole: (Not bloodseeker, forget which pro he was) SHUT UP. No here wants hear you bitch!
    Me: Okay... (I just use tetx chat for a while after this.)

    Leter on, him being a douche to me and the guy laning with me, a Dazzle. We are in a team fight and winning, last guy is getting away.

    We run after him and I use my slow on him, being the lead of the pack. At this poitn i have bvlads, and over 2/3rds of my health with 2 people behind me, including "Ahole". The guy we are chasing is down to around 1/2 his health, and he says

    Ahole: Don't let that bear fag get the kill!

    He runs off, and the other guy follows him. I get the kill, but about 20 seconds later, his teamate comes out of the fog, stuns me and then I get hit by Zues ultimate and die.

    Even later, they are defending mid from 3 of the guys, bottom is empty so me and dazzel go around the back, push ALL the way into the base, and take out the entirety of low and most of mid inside thier base. The Sand King and Zues come, and I sacrifice myself so the dazzel can get away since i'm damaged from tanking the turrets and i got initiated by the sandking. Daz is running back-

    Ahole: WHERE IS THE JEW DAZZEL? So fucking useless.

    Final score, We lose at 55 minutes. he went 3-10-7 with half my last hits and still using STARTER/CORE items we I have 3 of my situationals.

    Reported him. REPORTED HIM SO HARD. He claimed he was going to report me for intentional feeding.

    That alone couldn't have been the reason. You can only get banned from dota2 if you're super abusive and get reported shit load times:

    random dude on dev forums posted:
    there is no dota2 in my steam library

    where is it ?
    EricTams posted:
    I looked at all the reports against you - It took a while since there were well over 100. The rate of reports has picked up significantly with over 40 reports in the two weeks leading up to the chat mute.

    I'm not sure why you wanted this looked into. You start a lot of fights with your teammates and use very insulting language. I can tell that your behavior is partially driven by wanting to win in a competitive game. I like that you are trying to win but someone making a mistake is not an excuse to abuse them or ruin the game. I can understand your point that people could abuse the report system - it's true that a few of the reports against you were not actionable - however *all* of the reports against you had merit.

    There were two issues that appeared in most reports. The most common was criticizing players on your team in an insulting and nonconstructive manner. It's text abuse to spam 10 messages a minute about how your teammate is useless, should die and uninstall Dota.

    The second major reason that you were reported was threatening your teammates to ruin the game if they weren't doing what you wanted. "Game is ruined I'm build Dagon" was the most common - often happening in the first 10 minutes of the game. The threats you made included warding your own jungle to prevent creep spawns, selling all your items and feeding, going AFK, telling the enemy team the position of your allies and trying to disrupt the farm from your teammates.

    I generally don't like to share bad behavior like this publicly but I feel it is necessary to clear up some confusion on what counts as an actionable offense.
    - Don't spam insults at your teammates
    - Don't spam offensive language
    - Don't work against your team
    - Don't ruin games with exploits

    You might get your access back in due time and I'm sure you will upon release. No one from Valve would ever remove your dota access based on one incident, no matter who is involved.

    Yes because the admin at STS (who doesn't even control the flow of DOTA invites) obviously wants to take away your DOTA account based on one specific incident.

    I'm not going to argue that what happened between you and Glub didn't lead you to losing your account. But, to think that this one specific incident made you lose your account is wrong. The Valve staff isn't going to pander to the STS mods based on their whims. If they did, none of us would have to "work" for the DOTA 2 beta and we'd actually have the Pirate language out by now.

    More importantly the context of what happened - you being an asshole to a new player - leaves me with little sympathy for whatever happened with you. That behavior is exactly what we want out of the group and also out of the game.

    It isn't, we just happen to be members so he's escape goating. Aydin quoted that Valve wouldn't revoke Dota 2 because of one or two people complaining, has to take several acts of bad behaviour and reports.

    If you manage to get farm well and get a dagon moderately fast, I'd say go for it. Seriously I don;t see the hate towards Dagon. Yeah it might suck late game but an extra 300 burst damage can really help out early and even to late-mid game. Depends what role you're playing. As a semi-carry go for a manta then maybe a deso. If you want ganks get a medallion early on. I sometimes grab a maelstrom. Drum isnt bad either. And its rare but a lothars could help sometimes (although people bash on it since its common everywhere)
