    Is it better to win with few kills and deaths or to lose with a kdr of about 5?
    To win? This isn't call of duty so it doesn't matter what your kdr is.

    It seems to me that a lot of people I meet blames losses on the players with the least kills. Even if they manage to break towers and support well.

    Because a lot of people think this game is like call of duty and kills > barracks.

    On that note Sing Sing was streaming this morning and told viewers he played with no delay on the stream, the match was just the enemy team de-warding whenever Sing Sing's view showed one of theirs and also them dropping everything and running to gank him when he was nowhere nearby and no wards were up since Sing's team put sentries everywhere trying to figure out how they knew exactly where he was- also they'd reply to his comments while streaming ingame. It was really douchey- so put a 5 minute delay pretty much is what I'm trying to say.

    I wouldn't say so, translating pirate requires very little brainpower, don't be jealous because you can get it too if you have the patience to get through the circlejerk admissions. (read below on what Scrake said, completely validates this)

    Haha I figured when I saw the slip that it had to be the sketches .

    Also Beezle there's a few things wrong with your post:
    1.) Translating Pirate isn't like translating for the other languages, but there's still a code that we follow. Therefore we get a lot of translators who join to translate/see upcoming Valve updates only to never translate after a few strings because there's so many rules and regulations to how we do things. Even if it's as simple as translating "The STS package is pretty rad" to "Th' STS parcel be quite a beauty," a lot of translators forget the need for uniformity or completely diminish their creative power immediately. I ended up translating a lot of bio strings into Pirate, and translating several paragraphs of backstory is tiring to say the least.
    2.) The STS packages were for specific STS members. The 8 of us in Pirate that got the packages were actually people who earned STS DOTA 2 beta keys. And the 8 of us who earned STS DOTA 2 beta keys were deemed important translators who put in a lot of work or effort into our respective languages. I literally earned my beta key/package by working my ass off in a contest for Pirate. Not to say that Scrake would not have input a lot into his language, but by the start of this year 3/4 of the languages available had spots filled. Especially Spanish, which was, afaik, the first language to actually finish.
    3.) Scrake should hit me up if he wants to be added into STS. Unless his application was rejected - again, if this is Spanish they're pretty set with translators AFAIK - I can probably talk to one of our admins and see if he can get a translation position.

    I was late but they kicked one guy from the dota 2 spanish group, asked a mod to get in and told me he'd take in consideration I have experience in moba games and stuff

    Then he got a friend of him in instead who has no fucking idea of translating so he could get free stuff


    but eh I got a signed portal 2 poster the other day from valve, I'm happy enough.

    oh wow, there are so many item options for jakiro, I have no idea which items to rush
    Mek, Veil OR drums(Veil if you are sure you can land a good ulti or/and if there are other magic damage heroes on your team who can benefit), if need for disable go for sheep, if you want more damage(again always sure u can land a full ulti) go for scepter.

    And those items are if you are overflowing with moneys cuz you are a support/roamer so you gotta buy wards!

    I've recently taken a huge liking to Pugna. I don't really have a good grasp on items to get, though. I (obviously) get the courier, and then tango, and then I build toward the Ring of Basilius. After that, I go for arcane boots at the same time as mek. Since I got those really quickly in my last game, I didn't know what to go for next, so I just went for Scythe of Vyse. Good/bad? I would like some help on getting a better pugna build.

    Scythe is good for every Int hero. Eul's isn't a bad idea either if you're strapped for cash.

    Okay, well at the end of the round I had 5000+ gold and all I had left in Scythe is the 2700 gold item (name slips me, sorry). After that would I go for DPS or armor items?

    I know you wouldn't remember EVERY hero that shouldn't get Aghanim's, but would you guys be able to say the ones that come to your mind? I need to know if I should consider it or not, depending on who I'm playing

    They shouldn't necessarily absolutely not get it, but Agh's is very overrated on Lion and Lina.
    I'm pretty sure it's recommended core for Shadow Shaman in-game but I think the damage increase on the wards is pretty negligible and there are much better items.

    Aghanims is a bad choice on Necrolyte, Crystal Maiden, and Windrunner.

    Great, professional writing on the Dota 2 wiki.

    Invoker is the only hero who should be getting one every game without question imo.

    Some great people to pick it up on are Clockwerk, Dark Seer, Nightstalker, Razor, Earthshaker, Sand King, and Vengeful Spirit.
