    well considering the survey asks about previous Dota experience, I expect them to be looking for people with previous Dota experience.
    Sometimes they let new players in as well.

    Whats a good situation to use necronomicon?
    Honestly, any time is a good time for a Necrobook. The utility it provides is great. If they have a stealth hero then you should definitely get one. Even if they don't you can still use the true sight to ward hunt. Mana burn is an awesome tool that can screw a hero like Anti-Mage over. AS and MS aura is good for pushing. Last Will, on the melee creep, will kill someone. That's 600 Pure damage when it dies to whoever killed it.

    Answer: any time.

    But nothing else except the name on that spot got changed since my steam and ingame names remained the same, so I think dota 2 just glitched or something

    Just had a very close game. We get invoker and tiny but they have silencer. If I didn't pick tiny, then we would have possibly won it. It became a base race towards the end since I couldn't pull off my combo in teamfights with Silencers passive, Lycan just started to backdoor. Both sides all barracks down and we couldn't hold off the 3 carries. They were busy killing us at fountain so Lycan had a free bd for a while until they started attacking throne.

    All translators suck. But in this case it might be because "Ei" and "bratish" aren't really words.

    Does anyone else here play Dark Seer commonly? Right now he's my favorite character and he seems to be pretty under-appreciated. He can play most any role, from support to carry, solo lane easily with Ion-Sphere, and having that on your head early to mid game easily puts your DPS above any other character if you level it first. Plus he's pretty much a tank the whole game through regardless of what role you play if you get the right items. With Surge you can escape most ganks easily, especially those that depend on slows (I regularly finish with less than 3 deaths) and get around the map quickly without heavy mana use or tp scrolls. And his ult is possibly the best ult for scaling into the late game, especially against a team with multiple high DPS Heroes. In this one game that dragged out to 83 minutes, the enemy Tiny got a Rapier from our stupid Nature's Prophet. That may sound like a bad thing for most teams, but with my level 3 ult and scepter I made an illusion of him that did 140% of his damage and had his 4k health that quickly wrecked his entire team while they focused on us. Looking through the thread I've seen nothing about him other than the admittedly hilarious videos of him vacuuming people onto hills and such, not even in any of the pub-stomp pictures. So uh, any other Seers out there?

    I don't play him commonly, but I have a couple times. He is a pretty versatile hero when it comes to types of damage output, and his surge is a very useful tool. I'm not so great as him, but he's fun to play.

    One of my favourite heroes by far. I normally play him as an aggressive support, although he can handle almost any role. Ion shell wrecks havoc into enemy melee carries who attempt to farm early game.

    Dark Seer is fucking awesome. He quickly became my favorite character. Surge + Phase boots pretty much grantee you'll escape from even the worst of situations. I can't count how many times I've gotten away from the entire enemy team with just a sliver of health. Vacuum is also a very good escape tool. One time I vacuumed 3 guys who were chasing me onto a ward spot, and got away with around 50 HP and my team ended up getting 2 kills out of it. He's very versatile, can tank, support, and do a shit ton of damage. Early game is pretty easy with him. Laning against melee heroes? Just throw on an Ion Shield and kick the shit out of them. His base damage and armor are pretty good and you can just straight up fight against melees with little worry. Laning against ranged heroes? Just pop a shield on some creeps, it will force them to either get closer or back away. Yesterday I played a game where I literally ran into 4 enemies (Natures Prophet, Morphling, Spirit breaker, and Lifestealer), threw down a shield on myself, used my orchid on Prophet, killed him in like 2 seconds, used my ult and vacuumed everyone into it, threw another shield onto one of the illusions, and killed everyone else with just 20 health left, and enough mana to surge out of there before their batrider got to me. Ever since I started playing Dark Seer, I haven't been able to stop. I just kick so much ass with him that when I play a different hero, I just end up wishing I picked Dark Seer instead.

    I used to jungle dark seer regularly since his jungle is massive fun. Although his sceptre got nerfed, he's still a top pick for most comp games. The only downside I have for seer in pubs is that most people can't really follow up on his vacuum -> ulti.

    Just don't build omni semi-carry/carry if you're doing bad. Just had an omni throwing the game for us by getting orb of venom daed and sny. Farmed while we were pushing and only ulted himself. Tried to solo kill when he was negative on deaths and 2 level disadvantage. Russians love to throw.

    I always play pure support as omni. Basilius, Arcane Boots, then either vlad's or mekansm. I have 24 - 14 as omni so I wouldn't say I'm doing bad. Sven, on the other hand... eugh.

    Is Valve distributing beta keys to good players only? I've never played any moba games before but dota 2 looks really good. For some reason having noob stats won me a csgo key, hoping it will work for dota as well.
    They already said in the beginning they're inviting a variety of skill levels to have a diverse playerbase.

    I find this funny because the first time I ever played WC3 Dota, I joined a CM game without having any idea what CM was and got stuck on Rylai with a bitchy, non-native english speaking N'aix and another support hero in the bot lane. We lost horribly because he kept tower diving, then bitching at me for not being a magical goddess that could save him from all of his stupid mistakes, then left.
