Defence of the Shrines 2 thread!
Chat channel under "User" category: /jp/dots
Let's get some games going tonight, /jp/!
We played a 5v5 just now, but only 3 of us were /jp/sies.
Anyone up for a game? Anyone who can host?
It will be confusing and overwhelming the first few times you try it, but that is the nature of dota-like games.
If you are up to getting past those rough first matches it can be quite fun.
I'll be hosting some games tonight, so there wont be no lag issues like normal pub games.
Please do not have lewd thoughts about the pure 2hus.
You will be punished by the Yama next time you play DotS.
If you've played regular Dota it's kind of like that but with another map,items and heroes.
If you've not played Dota it's hard to explain.
There's many new people and if you're playing with /jp/ people they're nice understanding, so it does not matter if you're new or not.
On a slightly different matter.
What ever happened to the /jp/ Minecraft server?
I've only heard about it but I love to hang around other /jp/sies in an open sandbox world with no objectives. Thats when true
Original wc3 dots has Alice. It was nightmare. You have to micromanage Alice herself and all of her dolls ( 12 of them ) they divided in 3 groups and each one has their own abilities. It was like playing a piano, guitar, harmonica and drums at the same time. You also have to resummon all of them AND rebind all of your groups keys after you get killed.
Not him but Komachi was a lot of fun and is who I'm waiting for to get back into dots2 because wife. She was a str tank. She could switch places with someone, she had built in lifesteal and AA procs, and when she killed stuff they turned into invincible wisps that you could use as scouts and/or blow upon people after boxing them in. Her ult was a debuff that lasted a really long time, and if they dropped below a health threshold she teleported to them and fragged them instantly.
A lot of fun with teammates like Tewi or fuckin Yamame before they reworked her retarded AIDS debuff.
I mostly want Komachi, Yuuka, Mystia, Merlin and Orin. They were so fun.
Actually after checking out her page I guess they changed her ult in a patch and gave her a kinda lame parameter increase passive.
New ult is really nuts. Now I'm even more excited.
Komatits was good and fun to play in comparison. Mobs you kill with her leave a souls witch disapear with time but invulnerable. You can control them and detonate them at will like remote mines ( each of them blow of % of enemys hp ). Her skill set is build around it. You can swap her position with opponent porting them into your souls. Her ultimate is instakill enemies who has less then half hps. You need good timing and some skill to actually score a kill so its feels really rewarding.
Not very. While both are mobas, the addition of ability power and skills scaling with AP/AD alone changes the whole item dynamic so that mages, marksmen and tanks build their own item branches. Dota has more items with strong effects, like an on-hit chance to stun, or an active that turns an enemy into a sheep for several seconds.
On top of that, Dota retains the old Warcraft III attributes of Strength, Agility and Intelligence, from which other attributes are derived. So a strength-based character can build strength items, and get durability as well as damage.
There are also no summoner spells, and no designated jungler items, and many skill and item effects are chance-based.
So where are most of the people here located? I am guessing America?
I am euro myself but games often get filled with East Asians who don't understand how joining a specific lobby works only to blame the host for being a bad host.
>What's better lol or dots
Depends on which nutrients you need to reach a set goal. No need for deletions; it's not ````trolling""' if you have a brain. (If anything, yours is the worthless post.)
A cursory search says dota is more complex and thus more punishing than lol. So, lol is better if you want something simple to pick up and play and get good results at without too much work. dota is better if you want a deeper tactical experience with a more tightly-knit team. No getting carried in dota.
Anyone up for some games later today/tonight?
Eh, I still end up feeling bad about it. I've enjoyed the games I've been in and I hate wasting people's time when I get stuck on the loading screen.
In any case it's a bit late for me tonight. Perhaps I can join you all another time.
Just a heads up, tonight(Merika time) will be the last night I'll be able to host for a while.(A month)
Get it while its hot.
Still wondering why there's 51 members, and only ever see 10 of them actually play.
Maybe they live in timezones that make it hard for them to play with the 10 regulars? It's not out of the question since the same guy has been hosting like 90% of our games.
Let's see what time zones with are dealing with.
I always forget that the rest of SA Only shares one time zone with the north.
I share EST and Central depending on whether or not they are using daylight saving time in murica.
I'll host again in a few hours. Stopped hosting for now, seemed to have issues with the ruskie fgts plaguing my lobby.
If interest is still this barren when I get back, I'll probably stop hosting overall. Kinda tired of wasting resources with the open window.
I'd like to play, although it's a family member's birthday and I'm going to go out and have dinner with them. Hopefully I'll play after I get back.
And people get busy, anon! It's a week day, dots and the thread are always dead during the week. I doubt many jpsies who liked to consistently play the game have lost interest. Although I haven't seen the friendly russian man lately.
Who buys blue wards in custom games, cmon guys?
Well, they do already have their silly blink item. Too bad it's largely useless.
I really do agree though, I'm desperate for even a force staff like item. Heroes like Yuugi really suffer from lack of mobility items.
Would you believe me if I told you they used to do twice the damage they do now to buildings?
Her third. The one that makes 4 balls follow her and shoot 4 or 5 volleys to nearby enemies.
It is actually just depressing that she can take towers in 10 secons just by neing level 7.
It's her orbs. They peroidically fire like 80 damage shots at random nearby enemies, including towers. It's basically death prophet ult on crack, except also not an ult.
Honestly, there are a lot of skills that need numbers fixes. Wiggle's W, Sakuya in general, Yuugi's knockback procs, Kaguya's Q, Yuyuko's ult, the list goes on.
Please remove unknown stopwatch from the game it's literally cancer.
We have a new Touhou Defence of the Shrines map, Minamitsu Murasa was added to the game!
Along with it we have new icons,buggy tooltips,improved hitboxes and maybe better graphics iunno.
Can confirmed it's true! Popeye is here.
Sad news is that 90% of the tooltips are broken.
Please note the new update was applied to a new mod entry you have to install!
It was released earlier today and will be the only version of dots that will be supported un the future.
I know the new version has some minor balance changes + Murasa, but no tooltips are working, it displays default hero names (ie. Juggernaut ibstead of Youmu) and who knows what else is broken at the moment.
Whether to play the new or the old version will depend on the people playing, since there are no tooltips you have to know what things are and do.
There's none playing any of the DotS map at all now. Will probably take until the new map is fixed(tooltips and such) until people start playing again. They really should have waited to release the new map until such things were fixed.
And here I was hoping a new hero and update would make the game more popular again, not less.
I have no idea.
It's kind of dumb of them to just release a new map with broken tooltips and such and just totally cease support on the old.
At least you should be able to download and play the old map until the tooltips and such is fixed I think.
Hosting new lobby 2/10
I just tried hosting the old one it doesn't show on lobby list, and there's only one touhou game when you look through custom games so looks like the new one took over. Just going to have to wait for them to fix the tooltips soon I hope.
It is still possible to play the old dots, they changed it's name to "Please subscribe to the new version something something"
I do not know if it is still possible to download it tho.
I really dont think that it's supposed to work like that. Like, they could fix her by making the pillars random instead of relative to her facing. Right now, I can literally just spin2win and with unknown stopwatch, its basically unstoppable unless you can stun her first.
I can try to host some games next time.
Last time I did it lagged(but I've been able to host games before that) but that could be because my Internet was quite unstable back then.
But I will host from EU.
I have 1 GB up and 1 GB down but I live in SEA. GMT+8.
Sorry /jp/, damn military sent me out in the desert for a bit. At least I can be a NEET when I get out in April.
Im upset on missing out on the new map.
I can try and host a game in a few hours(Located in EU though).
But I can't promise that it will be lag free. But it does not hurt to try at least.
>Every team fight decided by who lags the least
I believe we were all lagging like crazy. I was the Yumemi, and I was pretty much just mashing buttons and hoping something would hit in that deciding team fight. Fun match otherwise.
Yukkuri stick DID glance off of me because the dragon star, but the camera procs fucked me up
Could have been the lag in that second to last teamfight making me think it was doing more though. From my perspective, I targeted Kaguya, froze, heard a bajillion yumemi autoattacks, and then was dead and both of us had triple kills.
Fun games tonight. Thanks guys, I really needed those.
Am I late, or did the game not materialize? The groups thing tells me only 1 is in-game. Is there a way to specifically join a /jp/ lobby?
I think most of our members(nearly everyone) is from the US so will will probably have to wait several hours until people are able to play.
Also I don't think we got many NEET people either, so it's usually around evening time (US) games are played.
Game is hard.
I'm up for another if you are.
According to what the nigga said he literally never played dots or even dota before, I helped him out and explained some basic stuff to him but yeah I can see the frustration he can cause. I dont dislike new players and always enjoy new players, but god damn do I hate emoticons, they upset me a lot more than they really should.
I think >>14745030 was referring to that ParuFlan guy who had a Parsee avatar, He posted that more than an hour after i left.
And judging by the comments he played an abysmal Byakuren as well. To me the guy doesn't play dota at all, he just wants to play as cute touhous.
Whilst he isn't someone you want on your team,he is pretty okayish in terms of person though a little excessive on the emoticon side.
Yeah. I'm just saying that >>14745099 is trying to bully the wrong person.
I got into a 9/10 lobby with a bunch of russians. They are playing on US East so it's decent lag wise
It's happening boys
Gotta unequip your cosmetic items. Blame Valve.
Also, if you get the bug where all the icon are Dota, quit the game (as in, the whole program, not just the match), and reenter. You can blame Valve for that, too.
>Youmu player jumping everywhere killing everyone
>He leaps out of vision to an impossible to reach portion of the map where you can't see him
>HELL'S ARTIFICIAL SUN
>Kill him in fog
I AM QUOTING THE WORDS ENGRAVED ON MY HEART THAT HE CARVED OUT OF MY CHEST.
DIE, YOU FUCKING GHOST SAMURAI. DIE.
Okuu goes "I won't let you escape" or something along those lines when you cast her ult.
Bump limit reached!
I guess I'll just make a new thread when this one expires, the steam group didn't help much to get games going.
Ah, so your waifu is in DotS, that works out then.
