Dota has 90+ heroes, true! but most of them have all the same generic gameplay, which is:
Stun, then attack attack attack.
or
Active orb, then attack attack attack.

this is soo poor. It's incredible that stupid things becomes so famous amoung stupid persons...

-look that cheap tiny, everyone plays the same with him:
avalanche then toss then attack.
-Or worst, the godamn lina:
do the stun, the dragonslay then use ultimate, if you can also use dagon, then shivas then unleash the friking hell.
-we also have the pevisible witch doctor:
maledict, then stun, the cast ultimate (with lothars if you have).
-don't forget the skeleton king with his ONLY ONE ACTIVE SPELL!
-or that guy named rikimaru...what a lame, this is just about get invisible, than blink strike, a smoke bomb and then you hope and pray to god you can kill the enemy.

The best heroes of Dota are nerfed, I don't know why, but they are:
seer, invoker, meepo, puck, when people use them, most of times I see them dying ridiculously, because I only see 10% of those who play with those heroes doing it well.
Although, almost everyone who plays with phantom lancer, rikimaru or skeleton king becomes owning machines even if they don't know how to play.
The heroes that are easy to play are too strong, and those who are hard are nerfed! This is madness, we have a complete inverse sense in this cheap game.

Well you are right and there should be some buffups , like introducing an item with pasive Engineering Upgrades derived ability that replaces hero's abilities with the same abilities damage wise but lower cooldowns so that intelligence heroes still have a chance after 25 minute mark . And also make spells benefit from intelligence like increased spell damage by 200*intel/(100+intel)% more damage . that way getting intelligence grants damage with diminushing returns up to 200% more damage and 100% damage bonus at 100 intelligence reached .

Since the heroes mostly use ladder abilities ... they made backstab , blinkstrike and some new ones but still ye olde critical lifesteal pwns so i think i'd be better off playing BvO where it's not that much difference but it's a player arena and noobs in your team don't hamper the game that much .

I'm a magic man, I've got magic hands.
I wish they made Hon or LOL free and available within ASIA. If they make it free-no subscription, I bet there are many who are willing to shift to it.
League of Legends is free, requires no subscription, and is going to be distributed in Asia by Garena.

I hit the blunt but the blunt hit me.
God I hope DOTA is dying.

Not becasue I enjoy the game, but becasue I am fucking tired of hearing about it.

It's like the Sarah Palin of gaming, its fucking ignorant and never seems to go away.
and in the words of the movie Fight Club, DOTA is

"The little scratch on the roof of your mouth that would heal if only you could stop tonguing it, But you can't."

DOTA is not even that great of a map. It's a flat piece of terrain with scattered buildings. Nothing at all spectacular. Looks like a map my mom could throw together, yet i think it is funny how the die hard DOTA fanatics will give up thier life to defend what I consider just another bullshit Hero map.

Who cares if it's "nothing spectacular", or flat terrain, etc. It's fun.

Your post made me think of number two :) http://www.thehelper.net/forums/showthread.php?t=144189

From your description, you tend to play solo very well.
It's the teamplay that makes the game fun. Tiny is not just about Avalanche and Toss and attack, attack, attack... =.= But yeah, I do agree with some of your descriptions.

DotA seems dying. Who cares anyway, it's just another game. =.=

You guys miss interpreted what I previously said. Some where in this year Icefrog intends to release DOTA standalone with Valve gaming. This game will be DOTA not a spin-off. It is exactly the same game without the limitations of Warcraft.

Don't worry, I'm working on killing DotA. It's easy.
  1. Play Clinkz every game.
  2. Get an average score of 25-5
It's really fun... :D

Now watch the people that insist I'm just versing bad players... XD
Yes! :D :D :D. I tend to switch around and kill the game around. People leave and say the game just got stupid :D

Lol. Clinkz is very annoying with his windwalk ;p. Where do you guys play? I feel the need to see exactly how good/bad I am :p.

Your argument is completely flawed.

First, Dota is not popular because people are retards. Dota is popular because its about pwning noobs. Who doesn't like that? Everyone. Exactly my point.

Second, your opinion is just that: your opinion. Calling a game poor or retarded because half the heroes don't have "cool custom spells" is absurd. Dota is first and foremost a teamplay game. Even powerful ganking heroes like Clinkz, PA, Lucifer, or yes--Invoker, etc. are only as good as their team setups are, and the setups of their opposing team. Anyone who disagrees has a very low elo that reflects their flawed sense of fair gameplay. Simply that.

Third, just because a game appeals to a wide audience doesn't mean its not a good game. And calling them all retards as you do speaks volumes about your own intelligence and taste.

As to the topic, I think it is slowly dying out. Many players are moving onto LoL, HoN, or other games. Plus, with the release of Star Craft 2 next week, I imagine there will be an approximately 35% drop in Dota games for the next 2 months. :D With that said, I think it will be many years that "dota" as we know it becomes a has-been.

    You need to buy a laptop that supports external GPUs for this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I'm pretty lucky to get myself an Alienware 15 with RTX 2070.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm moving back up north for the summer, I got offered my job as the tournant chef back and I'm tired of struggling down here, it pays like twice as much too
  • Varine Varine:
    I think imma give four or five weeks of notice today to my boss, and see how much that backfires on me. I know he's struggling to hire anyone though, so it's like, do a couple weeks of interviews with me and then we'll have two or three weeks to train someone to take over for me. Hopefully he doesn't fucking let me go in like two weeks cuz that would really fuck me up right now
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Wouldn't it be better if you give 3 to 4 weeks of notice? So that, at least you are guaranteed for 1 more week of paycheck to hold you over?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, where are you moving to?
  • Varine Varine:
    Back to Idaho for the summer, then maybe Houston in August or so, my girlfriend or whatever we are loved it there
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm not sure yet, but my parents need some help cuz they're getting older and my mom has MS so can't do much anymore, so I'll be able to get their property fixed up so they can sell their other house. And the resort is stoked to have me back for the summer, cuz they always struggle with staff.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think it'll be alright, even if they cut me loose a bit early I do have some money and I know plenty of people that will lend me the few hundred bucks to get up there. I'm just catching up after last year still, if I have to kite some bills for a couple weeks it'll be fine.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hate my job but I do like one of my bosses, he does try really hard to get me what I need, and I want to make sure I leave with them comfortable with a new manager
  • Varine Varine:
    I like my coworkers for the most part too as much as I bitch about them, they just aren't reliable. As kids tend to be, I was a shithead at 19 and 20 too I'm sure, so
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Good luck on getting things going.
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, it'll be fine, I got it mostly planned out already. Roommates know, boss will know in about an hour when I go to work, I'll have a plane booked once we decide my last day, and I have a place to stay up there lined up for two or three months
  • Varine Varine:
    That all came together surprisingly easily
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm going to give 4 weeks, so that'll give me 2 more full checks probably, and then one more coming after I leave.
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    All that shit came together really well suprisingly. My boss was upset cuz I am really good at my job suprisingly, but he's stoked that he got 4 weeks, plus one or two if he needs it, my flight's book in mid June, but I start my new job almost immediately so it'll be nice to have some time to chill and pack and get my rooms cleaned out. He actually gave me a dollar raise right after I gave notice to thank me for not being short or just leaving and making sure I can help interview and train someone to replace me. He is really cool, his food truck has just been a nightmare to run. I get my vaccine next week finally, allegedly Idaho will let me have my license back when I get there, and I have all my bills up to date so it should be an easy move this time around.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is anyone else getting server timeouts in the chat? I think it's on my end, my wifi adapter has been acting up recently
  • Varine Varine:
    100% my end, idk what it is though.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Just woke up. No idea.
  • jonas jonas:
    sounds great :) have fun in Idaho
  • The Helper The Helper:
    freaking Idaho
  • Varine Varine:
    Yeah it sucks up there, but it'll be a bit easier for the summer probably.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    When you get to Houston you will have your pick there is a huge shortage of good people to work in your field here. They are hiring everywhere and Texas is pretty much fully open.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    for anyone else following this yes I am in Houston so Varine and I will RL meet gotta love it! Looking forward to it!
  • jonas jonas:
    awesome
