Most of death prophet's respawn lines are pretty sad.
Sorry you didn't stay dead but I need you to zap more stuff.
Also your accent gives me multiple boners.
When I started playing this, I looked at OD and went "Holy shit look at him! He looks mad, and such an awesome model with awesome textures! And wow, hear his fucking mad voice and lines! Even his name sounds like a bucket load of "fuck you world"! "
That was followed by some pretty horrible games due to him being rather useless in the hands of an inexperienced person and since he doesn't really has abilities that are really useful compared to others.
Then I started trying out other heroes that, IMO, don't look as mad bonkers as OD, and ended up much better.
I saw a girl who only used Luna and Lion, but nowadays, she even uses invoker.
If you share UNIT CONTROL as Lanaya allies can spring traps, right ?
I had a game as TA where I asked this question and noone answered even a word. Early game they said few things, rest of chat was my colour entirely.
Carries do feel menacing or cunning, or just plain traditional-awesome.
Supports often seem like strong, determined, but with vulnerabilities.
Initators are usually big and bulky.
They are doing top notch job in terms of design. But that's Valve.
The only "Girls" on dota I've seen were the fake ones that pretended to be a girl but had an avatar of a model that you could just reverse image search and take them to their page.
The only girl I played against was a tool.
She didn't announce her presence which was refreshing, but she picked Ogre Magi and said that she should have more farm as me as Jugg, when I asked her to stop competing with me for last-hits cause it would mess us up she said "It's ok I have tits :3"
It's okay guys, she had tits.
Edit: Not hatin', she turned out to be pretty funny but DAMN that was retarded.
Although with his new face and those abs, he looks more menacing.
Some carries don't feel that menacing. Panda for example seems really cute and storm spirit looks goofy...
...until they use their spells
I have to give big props to Valve on the designs though. SF and SD look great for example.
Funny case is Phantom Lancer. He is fisherman,looks like a basic pole-bearing grunt for some tribal-living cat people. Yet, when you get a taboon of illusions with all those long and pointy spears, it works like hell. It kinda reminds of "Hussary', except on foot.
Panda, I guess you are refecing Brewmaster, isn't carry directly, he is semicarry and teamfight disruption. Yes, he can carry well, but his "menace" comes from his posture. He is big, strong, carries a large "stick" and 2 of his signature moves (Thunderclap and Primal Split) are big and flashy, making him almost a party-animal. Except at that party you die.
Storm Spirit looks goofy, but it works well. He is cunning/funny, he isn't carry that fights you head on like SF or Drow, he zips-zaps-zoops-kakakaju-s around ya, all while stylin and smilin. Let me put it like that, if any other carry finished a pack of enemies off, they would just turn around and leave, Storm would make a revenant to clap for him , while he's bowing and thanking "the crowd". Lore suggests he is crazed by the encounter that happend to him, a mixture of human nature and elemental power.
2-11-15 as sven
People LITERALY stole my kills. Jakiro was 11-14-5 due to the kills he stole from me...
On top of that, our nightstalker was shyte.
I haven't seen lycan instapicked in a while.
I know he got nerfed, but damn I was sure he is still a viable pick.
I want to know why there always has to be that one prick that calls everyone else bad.
I remember when it used to be good ol' quality GL HF and GG WP every game.
His laning isn't terrible, but then it's issue with Lycan being Lycan, i.e. all about damage. He doesn't have anything except damage and while that is great in some scenarios 2 ranged casters might just laugh and combo him. Leaping from lane to jungle also gives enemy team clear sign: Gankable = this area (where before he spend his time here from the start i.e. some people could just forget about him and be about to receive rude awakening) + lanemate suffers if he stays in lane, as he is against enemy/enemies who is/are higher lever/equal level, i.e. he is at disadavantage compared to if he had all experience from lane in the first place.
He is still monster mid/late, his Roshan is much more difficult now as wolves die 2x as fast to Rosh as well.
I guess people are still figuring out how to jungle with him with basic 600g without having to ask for assistance or do trips back to fountain and maybe then we will see some comeback. For now, he is damage-ball that will be picked in mid/late pushstrats most likely.
I find it humorous when people say they will lane for 3 levels and then go jungle.
Do they not realize the disadvantage they are giving their lane partner.
In such case, it can be smart to get Lycan in conjuction with Night Stalker for example and let Lycan jungle at first night, stuff like that.
I am glad I always random, so I can just go basilius into lots of regen and semi-old jungle with a lot more micro.
I've had legitimate trilanes in pubs, both working and not. I've had pushstrats, 5 man carry wins, all-early nukers loses, balanced teams, anything.
Odds of you going lycan, asking a teammate who picked reasonable survivable hero and asking other guy to pick Night Stalker and make enough hell around at night so you can farm up to your midgame in jungle are not as low as you might think.
Unless you are stuck in low priority, god the stuff in there. I've been down there maybe 2 or 3 times and I am still scared.
bot games are fucking awful to solo queue in if you want to try anything thats not a carry
bads feeding viper bot 10 kills in 8 minutes
People often force him into support for the same reason they force Silencer. They both steam-roll via kills, Silencer due to INT steal, Sven due to ganking capability with Storm Hammer, Warcy and God's Strenght, so early on they can take one for the team.
But Sven being ward bitch and buying smoke every time team wants to gank ? No no no, wasted potential.
Nothing's more scary than BKBed Sven blinking into team and AoE stunning 3 people while God's Strenght is on.
Lol I just had the funniest game, I randomed Dazzle so I didn't buy support stuff because our random Omni wouldn't buy wards so I didn't courier, the entire game was lost and we made it for 50 minutes for some reason just dying over and over, but then... their BH bought a divine... and our team stole it and won in 2 minutes.
"learn not to buy shit items" - what is that supposed to mean to someone who might not have real idea about items and isn't about to google "not shit items Dota 2". And yes, I did see 410 games of that Void, people might be slow learners or he might've not played/forgotten how to Void. Sticking to idea that he is either trolling or retarded isn't really bright by itself.
I am not asking you to stop raging or cussing at team, but one step at a time and you will find new level of enjoyment. You might even laugh when teammates fail in a comic way, and worry afterwards only. Like I do.
can you find whats wrong with this picture
