Every game ever made works like this, slope notwithstanding.
The more important graphical prompt would be one of relative skill floors. That requires more lines and more bullshit, though.

Pic related, most of the community.
I'd like to say that it at least keeps the retards away from others in one game but I don't play any online games so I can't know. And I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't true.
This graph is reversed for open-world games.

What? That was Tetris, Sims and Minecraft you fucking idiot, literally Google top sellers. Dota doesn't hold a candle to those three
Don't even play dota or its clones. Your post is literally retarded
I'm not talking just about dota, but about the genre as a whole, including LoL, HoN, the blizzard one etc. I mean, the games are basically the same so you can just call it dota... 'inb4 hurr durr but they're not the same muh mechanics!' fuck off, TimeSplitters is different from Battlefield and yet both are FPS.
Or do you want to claim that lol and dota aren't responsible for influx of casuals?
Or are you trying to be funny because both lol and dota are free and so I couldn't even find them in that list?
Never said I couldn't cross the houses
Yeah. Just give the invading armies an easy way to detonate entire city blocks.
>no crossing lines
never said anything about hexagons
Nigga, people have become multi millionaires thanks to getting really good at Dota.
Hate it all you want it IS becoming more relevant.
It was shown on fucking ESPN for fucks sake (though, some announcer guy got really butthurt and threatened to quit if he was ever forced to cover a video game lol).
So JUST LIKE WITH EVERYTHING NEW, Mobas are going to become more popular, gaining more hate before slowing becoming accepted as a normal for a kid to play as a "sport".
You can get a fucking e-sports scholarship for crying out loud.
That's right /v/, the genre you hate is getting THAT much recognition. Stay mad
I feel you, man. Most of my friends love the shit out of League and Dota, and yet they just act like total chimpanzees while playing that.
I gave it a shot, but even through I was doing well, I hated it just because it's grind: the game.
This is my main problem with the moba genre.
The fucking grinding and farming. Fuck that shit. I farmed enough when I still played mmos. I want to pvp and fight other players, not trashmobs.
People take it way too goddamn seriously at all levels of play too, beginner mmr people getting mad as if it's a pro game. The communities are just complete trash.
Oh get over it.
Have you never been in a room full of males playing a competitive game (and not just a video game)?
It's just how men are in a competitive mindset.
Men can't even watch SPORTS, that's right WATCHING OTHER PEOPLE PLAY, without turning in to autistic spergs.
I hate how people on /v/ act like they lived fragile, quiet and passive aggressive lives where no one gets heated about something they're excited about.
Seriously, it's a video game that a relatively huge time and effort sink of course people get less than rational and more tempered.
I don't wanna give into the whole "hurr durr /v/ never goes outside" meme, but it sounds like none of you have ever been outside and played a sport.
It's muuuuch fucking worse and arguably less autistic, just because they're playing a real sport.
Felt that way about Monster Hunter. Once I was in the groove everything became absolutely amazing.
yeah because people aren't drawing the lines like you should in graph theory and they don't assume that the house is a single point but rather every house has 3 points where lines can be connected to, or rather touching a point of the entire area of the house counts as connected
If you try to connect them all to a single point within a house you will see that it's impossible without crossing lines
When did you realize that /v/ and most of 4chan is filled with tumblerinas and redditors? I just can't take it anymore.
Agree, I was actually thinking of making the image myself.
At the start you don't understand the mechanics and there is a lot of different shit out there with a truckload of exceptions so you think the game is shit.
Then you slowly start understanding each hero and their mechanics and you start doing some interesting things and you have fun.
Then you end up just knowing the mechanics (as everyone else in your games) and you are back to the first state of everything being entertaining but boring, with not much to actually learn and mechanics that you could get better at, but that are simply not worth it in terms of enjoyment.
I only play dota when I have nothing else to play nowadays.
I remember when reddit wasnt a thing, 90% of people used a computer for myspace, and you werent here because you were probably at soccer practice or in your mom's minivan. Then I remember when 4chan got infamous and everyone decided to come here and shitpost, normalfags took over, etc. 8 years ago, neet was the norm. Now 4chan is a normie paradise, especially shit like /g/ where its basically a hugbox for how to become a normie. Seriously go on /g/ right now dont know for sure but I bet there is a thread where about 15 semi-rich engineers are having a circlejerk about why their life is better than the next guy. Idk when 4chan became the place for normies to show off how normal they are but it wasnt like this when I started posting here in 2006. Anyway /g/ was ruined by normies and now /v/ is ruined too, because before this website was for neets to discuss things in a neet way, and now a bunch of 20-something-shits straight out of college use it as their hugbox and life hack so they can normie-it-up some more
I found dwarf fortress enjoyable from the first moment, my perception of it wasn't negative.
Kind of the same deal only I ended up really liking the game.
And I mean really liking it.
any MOBA. at first you're having a good time with the game, then the initial novelty is wearing off and you're getting tired of playing with assholes in your class or pubs who are also assholes. You get easily annoyed when playing the game and blame others for your mistakes - you become a salty dumbass. Then you get breddy gud with the game and achieve skilled-player-zen.
Soon after that you will start to feel like every game is just a rewind of the same MOBA mixtape - hell, sometimes even the spontaneous teamfights give you a deja vu. At last you accept it and continue on with your fully developed MOBA-addiction, playing not for fun but for your daily fix.
can /v/ solve a simple riddle?
You never said I couldn't close the doors
Shit.. it's two actually.
>throw (nuclear) bomb that explodes in a few seconds
nice retarded riddle
he threw a stupid fucking boomerang which came back and hit him in his stupid fucking face and killed him as a part of this stupid fucking riddle because nobody actually throws a boomerang out of a window, since they rarely return to the exact same point they were thrown.
Fine, then he never said I couldn't add more walls.
The real autism test is obviously atempting this.
Rude desu senpai
It doesn't say one continuous line, just one line. And that's exactly what he did, he put one line through each door. If he were to do something like this it would be wrong.
He was on safari and threw a large piece of meat and a lion right outside the window of his car leapt into it and killed him. (Being killed by an animal does not count as murder)
>this is the ONLY possible explanation because it's the one i thought when i came up with this, i'm so clever right?
Okay, since I'm not a complete fucking dipshit like most of the people here and realize the spirit of the question is to connect 3 POINTS to 3 other POINTS, this is mathematically impossible.
I doubt it. Seems pretty clear you stopped improving and got tired of the game. Which is completely understandable, it happens to me all the time. But don't pretend your new skill suddenly revealed that the game was bad the whole time or something.
think it as mini rpg battle
like in wow world pvp is "fun" but its not because people started playing in different time and nothings balance, but in dota everyone started their leveling in the same time
In that case, I pass through the door of one house, and using an underground tunnel come out another. Puzzle=solved.
WoW world pvp was fun because of the uncertain and chaotic nature of it, at any point a 1v1 could turn into a 1v2 or 1v3, and you had to deal with it accordingly.
It quickly turned to shit around the release of wotlk though with how watered down the game became.
just lay down and accept it
>people have become multi millionaires thanks to getting really good at Dota.
And people have become multi millionaires playing for an average sport team.
To try and get a stable income out of playing dota 2 or LoL is not what a normal, well adjusted person would do. Perhaps if you have spent your entire young adult life on this game and you have no other quality, making that decision would be understandable.
I doubt the legitimacy and prestige of MOBA will ever go as far as some of the fans proclaim.
And it's not due to the stigma of being a "competitive computer game" either - rather it's the inherent quality/performance assessment issue, the perpetual rebalance of the "game".
For example, games like chess, or football or basketball don't have this issue because the rules and elements to the game are fixed on both sides, to win at these games requires genuine skills - skills that are appreciable by every functional person in society, not because "I can farm 500 creeps in 30 minutes" or some strategy is exploitable, or *insert heroes are being OP pls nerf etc.
From the ancient to modern ages people will always applaud the winners of real sports (mental or physical) and I doubt someone who proud themselves of being super skilled in dota will ever be taken seriously.
>lol im such an oldfag
>us neets huh
>a bloo bloo bloo normies ruined everything
gas yourself faggot
TF2 for me.
Super fun when I knew nothing
Frustrating when I got a bit better and understood the game, but got btfo every time.
Pretty fun when I got good
Got stale when I got good enough that every pub match I'd be in first no mater what char I picked.
>start running joke builds to see how well they fly
>still end up topping the scoreboard as a spy who never cloaks or disguises purely with stock + ambassador
I'm glad it's over.
If a game isn't naturally compelling enough for you to want to improve at it on your own, then it's probably not a very good game in the first place as far as the individual is concerned.
