Or if they have no stuns but plenty of damage output you could run from that a BKB can't help you with.
BKB isn't a requirement on every carry. It's needed on some to be able to survive in fights for more than 2 seconds but some carries have ways to protect themselves in fights that don't require bkb.
Also shadow blade can be useful on WD because you can use it during his ulty. But AOE stun and truesight will stop you so it is a situational pick. (Although it is really gimmicky.)
I love it when enemies playing pubstomp heroes get mad when they lose.
I've been sad playing this nowadays.
It goes like this: No matter what I do, to my teammates, I am always a noob.
For example. I go with a friend of mine to our lanes, and unbelievably, everything bad happens to us.
Not only we get the dickest of enemies who either spam their shit continuously harassing like fuck, or we get 2 invisible enemies like riki and BH that fuck our shit too easily. We try to do something, but they end up killing us. What does the "elitist pro dickhead of the game" do? Whine whine and whine some more.
"STOP FEED"... Who the fuck is feeding, we are trying to do our job, but then we are unlucky enough to get 2 enemies who harass like fuck and suddenly, that number doubles and we get 2 on 4, if not the whole team. How about helping then you douchebag?
"GG, had noobs on my team" Oh really? Where were you when we or anyone else was getting ganked? Running away from the fight?...
Another one was when I had to mid as Bane against a Lion because our BH was AFK, even though we had an AM and a Leshrac who probably could have done better there.
The goddamn Lion kept harassing and hexing and I couldn't land a spell at all on him for some reason.
Then I got the periodic BS/riki gank, so it was me on mid against a Lion who didn't miss a hit, a bloodseeker and a riki.
Undying on our team just said "I can't do more than this, I've helped you alot already" well what do you expect me to do, I'm alone half the game, nobody comes to help me against the shitton of people ganking me at any time, any place of the game. I'm always the first one to go even if my whole team is with me.
I really don't understand what exactly I do wrong sometimes... I'm starting to think that I shouldn't partner with my friend. Every game I have with him ends up being shit where we both end up unintentionaly feeding the other team in any way. If I play alone, I probably get less then half the deaths I have with him and more kills.
Well you can easily fix the invis hero problem by buying sentry wards and placing them close-ish to your tower. I say close-ish, because they are harassing so much, so they are probably pushing kind of hard too. Don't put them too close, though, the tower already provides true sight around it.
Pugna is an underestimated and underplayed hero. If you have never played him, or have, and hated him [SUP][SUb]watch it anyway[/SUb][/SUP] please watch my replay. He's tricky and very squishy, but like Puck he shouldn't be taking any damage anyway. If he is taking damage, he should have his life drain running on them as it happens. Playing him well makes me feel joyously evil.
The scoreboard probably makes the result obvious. I feel that I could have done much better if I had bought carry items instead of the Mek (which I could never use because the losers were insta-dead/scattering like ants in teamfights and the Sheepstick, which I could barely get a chance to use at all.
Any suggestions on how I should build a carry-Pugna?
tl;dr Shoulda got a lvl5 Dagon. Fuck.[/h2]
If you get ganked by someone from another lane, and not a single ss in sight, tell them to say ss next time so you can avoid it.
Also, Leshrac is prediction skills, so either you are placing it at completely obvious places, or you are just placing directly under him every time. (He can see when you cast a spell, and then try to dodge)
BH and Riki are incredibly easy to counter, just get sentry wards or dust, maybe a gem if you got spare cash and its mid game.
People harass purely to do exactly that, they want to fuck up your gold and xp income as much as possible, if you are Morphling, Tiny or Pudge on the same lane as Silencer for example, you are completely fucked when it comes to mana.
You don't happen to go double melee with your friend? Because that might be why you get easily harassed or killed. One ranged support is enough to continually harass while the carry can farm.
Going double carry on a lane is also a bad idea, make sure you and your friend aren't both carries.
And a reminder, the community is filled with asshats that can't handle losing or having someone sub par or bad (no offense) on their team, so they are going to complain endlessly, insult you, and overall be dicks.
(Bane mid isn't that bad by the way, and during the laning phase, if you keep dying, you should be more careful and just sit by the tower/xp limit and not try to last hit.)
Should had put the sentries earlier yeah...
We used to go double carry on our first games, but nowadays I usually play Lich or Lina or CM or something supportive with range. Sometimes not even that is enough.
He doesn't plays anything other than carry, and guess what is the only hero he plays... Anti-mage. No stuns, no slows, and no silences, relies on me to slow them down but since he and I get harassed to hell and back, we can never connect anything. He can't play supports at all either and gives chase even though they outrun him.
No offense at all. There was one time that I genuinely was playing bad as Axe because my lane partner was a complete tool who told me to heal when I was at 50hp left and had 2 enemies seconds away from killing me with 100% probability and then I just ended intentionally feed the other team because everyone started being a fucking tool saying I fed early game when in fact I had 0 help from my lane partner, but I don't get why everyone always assumes I'm intentionaly feeding and always say REPORT REPORT like crybabies. Is it my fault I have a shitload of people ganking me everywhere from fucking nowhere? Is it my fault that YOU GUYS(the teammates) run away and leave me alone in a team fight that we could have won with a bit of effort?...
I didn't die THAT MUCH as Bane, I managed to stay alive more or less, with a few deaths and kills in between, but the goddamn Lion always spammed his shit whenever I tried to do something. I tried to cast nightmare or anything, he would hex or throw the stun. I have no idea where the fuck did he get that much mana to keep on throwing spells like that. If I had never healed at all, he could had killed me maybe 5 times with stuns alone.
But seriously, that game with Axe was my worst ever. My lane partner was the shittiest ES ever. The whole time I was with him in the lane, I kept on getting targeted and killed, and he just stood behind me, watching from a safe place, doing absolutely nothing. In maybe 20 mins, all he did was try to land 1 or 2 stuns which he missed entirely. The only advice he gave was "if they are better than you, stay back, and if you are close to death, heal yourself". OH really?! How about you help me and make it a 2on2 instead of a 1on2, and how do you expect me to heal myself when you do nothing to help me at all while I have 2 enemies about to kill me? Not even "non cancelling" healing salve would help me you douchebag, fucking do something to help me instead of sitting on your ass you fucking idiot!
Does anyone else use binds for autocast to just spam them to hear your hero speak? I Keep picking shadow shaman so I can run around yelling about chickens without actually casting those spells.
Probably comes to close to spamming items on cd to hear "IT'S NOT TIME YET".
Who is everyone's favorite hero by lore?
I would have to say Silencer is my favorite lore in the game. Just makes him seem like the badass underdog that makes the great comeback/revenge.
Templar Assassin inc!
Rubick's lore is just the best. He enjoys the hell out of life while being incredibly eccentric and knowledgeable.
get your lighters roll a sticky lets get high/ two puns in there first person to find them gets a free item (they're very easy!!)
I hate Templar Assassin's dialogue.
"secret secret secret secret secret secret secret secret secret secret secret secret secret secret"
How do you use TA's traps? Lay them down and then chase people into them later?
TA seems more fun than useful
man that brings me back
I thought it was called Shadowmeld though back in WC3, know it was in WoW.
Watching Cyborgmatt's stream
Morphiling with a Top Hat.
Thats all I've got to say.
So I was playing with some friends, leveled up and found a Squiddles. The Antimage I had to support as Gyrocopter starts losing it because he turned the game around for us, and he was freaking out over how he only found a Kunkka hat and deserved my item.
It's funny how people get pissed off at you for stuff not under your control
Geez TA wrecks melee solo mids so hard
I suck as using meld though
I can't detonate selected traps using Q, anyone else having this problem? It's quite a big bug I hope only I have the problem.
q? dont think thats the correct hotkey unless youve set up some weird binds
Selected traps, I don't mean her D key where she detonates the nearest trap, I mean her Q key on a selected trap.
People are talking about how it isn't working so yeah it's kinda bugged.
