    I thought ss was a term made by lazy Asian players and doesn't actually stand for anything or anything like that.

    I got raged at for using ss. I use it because for me its faster than mia but someone was like "Uh we don't use LoL terms in dota." I only played a few games in LoL.

    I'm assuming that's where it came from. Makes more sense.

    Actually ss was the name of an old DOTA player who, during laning phase, first invented the idea of fucking communicating to your motherfucking team.

    I've heard ss is an acronym for "stay safe."

    I've also heard from my German friend that it's an elaborate reference to SS members hiding in Argentina after WWII, effectively missing from their lanes.

    One of these explanations is more likely than the other.

    I bet the second option is more likely since "stay safe" in DOTA is kind of ambiguous and more personal/less 'professional', as it were.

    Well yes it can. Haven't you ever heard the story of Dennis the Menace?
    Nope, Google isn't being helpful either. Enlighten me, please?
    Only results I manage to find when searching "Aghanim" are Google's "Did you mean..." results pointing me to "Agahnim", or Dota 2.

    Dennis the Menace was a comic strip that was published on the same day in the UK and in the US, despite neither author knowing about the other. They were both completely different comics but had the same name. I'm just saying that Icefrog coining Aghanim without drawing inspiration from Zelda is more likely than you think.

    Wow I used phantom lancer again today.
    Never again...

    Just can't use it at all. I just can't get used to it. Maybe I don't know how to use his abilities well, I don't know...

    Need some new heroes to try out... Maybe Void, Siren, try another go at Lanaya? dat meld is useful.
    What do you guys think?

    His abilities are...pretty simple.
    One is a slow that deals damage, slows and summons an illusion, it works similar to PA's dagger.
    The second is an invis spell you can use for easy escapes and what not.
    The third is obviously his illusion shit, and you should probably get it a little later game so that you have the harassing and escaping earlier on with Spirit Lance (q) and Doppelwalk (w).
    The ulti is just a huge upgrade to his survivability and amount of illusions he can summon.

    The trick is to build attack speed and auras that effect illusions like radiance and diffusal blade. You rape hard at this point.
    However imo, PL is a situational hero and as such should be picked against casters with non-aoe spells so they'll get frustrated when they hit the wrong you.

    The problem most people have though is micro-managing in general so I mean.
    PL is one of the easier mm heroes to me since you can just control them all at once and lead a fucking army.

    But I guess if you want a slightly similar but much easier experience, you might enjoy Naga :3

    Speaking of riki, I was playing with a riki that never leveled smoke but still went around 6-1 in the laning phase.

    I don't think he built diffusal either and went for a radiance instead. We still won.

    Two quick questions:

    Where do you ward Lycan's or Sylla's jungle to hurt their farm the most?

    And how the fuck do you lane against Kunkka? I have no clue what to do about the Tidebringer harass.

    As someone who comes from legacy keys, I find it really annoying trying to talk to people that do this, and cannot remember skill names. I use QWER, and wouldn't flop back to legacy keys for much of anything, but I simply cannot remember what letter a skill is in that format. In my mind, a skill has a special hotkey, even if that happens to be Q, and I literally cannot say something like 'Druids Q on CD,' without thinking about it. Saying 'Druids bear down for 60 seconds' is easy for me.

    I definitely understand why people call them by the letters, but old habits die very hard.

    Look at warding guides for spots that can double block, but focus on warding medium/hard camps, and then blocking the easy camp at 30s, and if possible 1 min with something, including yourself. Those two things alone will put an enormous dent in his early game farming.

    As for kunka? Buy more tangos. If in a sidelane, grab a ring of some sort. It will pay for itself in relatively short order, and the rings are useful in many items that you will frequently be building into eventually anyways. Beyond that, simply play safely. Tidebringer pushes the lane quite hard at higher levels, and you will get farm unless he has a support doing pulls.
