    I have 2 questions about Dota 2 in China:

    How are there professional Chinese Dota 2 teams if there's no Dota 2 in China?

    and when Valve releases Dota 2 in China, will they be forced to play it through Steam also? I only ask this because I was wondering if they'll show up on the stats page.

    Pretty sure a lot of dota in china is centered around LAN cafes

    Edited:

    Also isn't there a Chinese server?

    holy shit how does item distribution work
    Everyone(except me ) in my team abandoned the game, and 2 of them were the only ones who got items

    also does reporting actually accomplish anything?

    It has nothing to do with your performance. As far as I can gather, every time you hit around 50% or 100%/level up on battle points, you get an item.

    And yeah, it'll either get them sent to low priority for a while, or presumably banned from playing if whatever they were doing was bad enough.

    Does Radiance aura and Diffusal's mana burn transfer over to PL's illusions?
    I know Radiance aura does, that is why it's such a core item on him.

    Stacking Radiance's aura with PL's illusions=tonnes of damage

    The aura is transferred to illusions, but it doesn't stack.

    Diffusal's mana burn is the only attack modifier that works on illusions, and is why it's commonly used on Lancer.

    You're not very smart are you?

    When you crash from a multitude of things, including but not limited to: buying items, voice overs and using abilities, your 5 minute waiting time eventually runs out.

    just reboot usually when you crash you should reboot because once shit is corrupt it won't uncorrupt itself. Or just reset steam. No need to be mad

    I think I alternate between high and very high according to my recent games.

    I still get stuck with complete morons though.

    Steamroll teams because they have a competitive stack and then usually the worst players who are just there along for the ride are trash talking all game.

    Radiance aura does not stack. Overlapping auras only apply the effect once. It just exists in multiple areas of effect at once, meaning you can jungle and lane at the same time, or push two lanes.

    Diffusal does carry over, and it's why that item is amazing on phantom lancer. He can drain mana considerably faster than even anti mage, and the bonus damage output is considerable. With a modest army of illusions, even level 1 diffusal is basically equivalent to an undroppable rapier + mana burn and purge.

    why are russains the most annoying people to ever be on a team with? me and two friends joined a normal server only to get two russians on our team that kept spamming the beacon on the map 50 god damn times in the same spot to point out something was there. we would walk all the way there and it was completely empty and they would beacon back on the opposite side.

    King of Throwing by BoT'ing in to 1v3 with a Divine coming in

    get out of my way I'm trying to get the ladies


    So my friend builds divine rapier on Skeleton king. I kept telling him that he would lose it and would lose the game for us that way. He builds it and helps us win the teamfight. All goes well until the team decides to 3v5 the other side and skeleton king doesn't realize he doesn't have enough mana to reincarnate.

    I've been playing a lot of PL lately, and been building Quelling Blade - Poor Man's Shield( 2 slippers in the beginning and stout shield from the side shop ) for early game survivability, then usual Treads - Diffu - Radiance.
    Does the Poor Man's Shield affect illusions too and if there is, what would be a better build?

    You really shouldn't build Rad on PL, and I think making that Poor Man into a Vanguard would do you better.

    get friends to play with you.
    the less random people in your team the bigger chance to win.

    Or you can go to Asian servers i think there's no russians there.

    Guys, I'm in a dire need of help.

    I need screenshots of Strange items, and preferably ranks and names - I need to see where they appear and in what format. I don't have any Strange items so I can't test it myself.

    I think a screenshot of the item in the backpack would suffice. I'd be happier if this was an already ranked item. I'm a translator and these ranks are really painful and I need to see how can we translate and modify the strings with variables to make our job easier. Thanks in advance.
