Previous Thread: >>128662112
I've always wanted to be Tresdin's squire. I always enjoy fantasizing about entering the fountain with her after a long battle and slowly removing her armor, starting at the helmet and making my way down to her boots. The embarrassment I feel doing this in front of other female heroes only adds to the allure of the situation. She sits down on a stool and commands me to kneel down and remove her boots one at a time. "Is that a boner?" Rylai says. Akasha licks her lips, Rylai giggles, and Shendelzare glares at me. I try to cover it up out of embarrassment, but Tresdin kicks my hands away. "You haven't finished yet." I don't understand because I had already removed her armor, but after she gives me a look I realize that she wants me to remove her shoes as well. I take off her shoes and reveal her gorgeous feet, surprisingly soft despite her being a strong warrior, and extremely sweaty. "Lick the sweat off my feet, squire," she commands me. I hesitate for a moment and look over to the other girls. They all start giggling at me and whispering. Then I feel Tresdin's foot forced into my mouth with the other one covering my nose. The smell and taste of her sweaty feet causes my raging boner to grow even more. "Alright, squire, stand up and remove your clothes." Although embarrassed, I take all my clothes off. Suddenly I feel my position swapped with that of Shendelzare. Suddenly I'm lying beneath Akasha and Rylai, who had both taken their boots off, and were pressing their feet against my member. "No," Tresdin said, "He's mine." She runs over and gets on top of me. It's only now that I realize that she's holding Aghanim's Scepter, and I understand that nobody will be able to interfere with us. Her technique gets more and more intense until I am unable to hold back. I cum inside her pussy with the force of a hundred megacreeps. She gets off of me, and as I lay there quivering in pleasure she gets dressed and begins to chuckle. "Only 9 inches? Pathetic."

This is how this game died.
I just had a CM that put 0 points into Nova and that wasn't even the worst part of that match.

Why is this thread dead on a Friday night?
The chads are out having fun but what about NEETs?
/vg/ is complete garbage when there's no esports, so every non-autist will be doing anything except being on /vg/
I'm going to sleep now so I wake up with enough time to work out before slavladder
Well /d2g/, through out my years on the Internet I've met/seen the most autistic fucks the world had to offer. Recently, I had the opportunity to lay my eyes on the prototype; autism incarnate, the grand daddy of autism, the most autistic mother fucker I've witnessed in my life.
Never in my life have I lost more faith in humanity than the moment I saw this troglodyte in action.

no I only have 6k hours
besides he only has 3k games, which means at least 6k of those hours are just from having the game open
I don't really see the big deal, not even with the MMO hours. He probably spent a majority of the time socializing or just grinding or just having the client open.
Even if he did spend all the time, how is that autistic?
>alliance 2-1 secret
I had the worst game one idiot was salty he decided to troll for the whole game, because someone else took mid.
Eventually we lost when he built a divine rapier and gave it to the other team.
It's just Alliance shitting on every other "top" team
Yea no buddy, I spectate a ton of games + have more games than him + play customs and I only have 6k hours
its just from idling, probs just leaves dota running in the background inbetween games
what happened to this game/general in the last like 2 weeks
How do I git gud with Zeus?
I don't just mean abuse his obviously somewhat overpowered-ness against most team comps, I mean actually be good at him.
How to into mana management?
What items do I get?
How the fuck do I last hit reliably without using Arc Lightning?
After Bottle do I rush mana boots then blink dagger or what?
That mask thing that gives you extra damage really helps, plus if you are in a team fight your passive combined with your ult does a lot of extra damage.
Late game zeus is best played as semi support though, never go alone, help out with wards and shit.
snapchat alone is already terrible
but then you go ahead and make it even worse
>keep getting worse and worse teams
>just now i got a 0-17-5 rhasta, a brood going radiance, am in a trilane with a 40min battlefury and every single time the enemy rotated on me in mid no one tp'd in (because obviously it would be too much to expect to get allies rotating and helping me ever)
How the fuck am I supposed to win matches like this?
>aryan purge is the radiant
>queue for ranked on eu west
>matched with 9 russians
>How do you go winning 1v9 these days?
Play ranked, the moment you lose a match play unranked until you win, then queue for ranked again.
Use the power of forced 50 against the game.
>trying this bait in the gayest general
Nothing was nearly as bad as being pinned against the walls of a closed bathroom cubicle, with a cloth in my mouth and three hungry highschoolers queuing up behind me, taking turns to "fuck the gay out of me".
I staggered home, my face washed of the cumstains that would forever haunt me.
Dota was the drug and I was the addict, as focusing on landing a perfect Mass Serpent Ward would take me away from the still-open scars in my anus that would open up tomorrow, and the day after that, because my "pussy" needed to be "satisfied" by those 3 people.
The ghost-white walls of the cubicle, my pale face with what felt like buckets of cum and hatred on it.
Those last hits contest in which the loser becomes the bottom, and I would always pick something as horrendous as a CM so as to deliberately let him win.
I would snuck under his desk working my magic while he played his position 4 Wisp feeling constantly Overcharged.
This is exactly what i'm talking about, seems the winning start these days is forcing dumb mindless fighting and trades 24/7
It's a shame Dota got changed so hard in order to cater to retarded third world shits
>huskars maximum magic resist is on par with AM's constant magic resist and just a bit better than itemless centuar
has here been a bigger kneejerk nerf?
/d2g/ WEBMS AND REDDIT THREADS
I also use plastic utensils and ketchup with my steak.
>This kind of retard is Valve's intended audience
No wonder the game is so shit at the moment
ITT: things that make you regret your bet
>they draft a puck
If you have ever played in SEAnigger and US West (aka second SEAnigger) servers you probably come back to US East, praising those rat ass Peruvian dumb kids as the best Dota 2 players in the fucking world

>our carry tries to blame our Puck for not building a Dagon
We were winning until WK started splitpushing, and then we got ass reamed in teamfights because 4v5 we can't fight without our carry. And even despite that we were STILL winning because we had a better team comp.
But then suddenly we just get five man wiped by PA because she finished farming. She's the fucking easiest hero to deal with, what the fuck, just buy a mkb, neither our Jugg nor our WK bought a fucking mkb. Aaaauuughhh they had more than enough farm. THEY BOTH BUILT A DESOLATOR WHAT THE HELL.
WHY DO PEOPLE THROW
so what do you guys think about the new xvideos layout?
yeah, but you should have used your urn on sniper or cent
>bring up region locking for dota
>all the peruvians, russians and other subhumans come crawing out of the woodwork saying how bad it would be for the game
I picked Pugna to shut down the enemy LC and Skywrath, and it worked wonders. Got our WK two duel victories even by making him ethereal since duel ignores disarm but makes you immune to physical damage, make Skywrath completely irrelevant past the laning stage.
And none of it fucking mattered because WK built a goddamn Desolator after Juggernaut already bought one.
If you picked Omni you could have done that and more.
Bitches can't avoid PURE damage.
>If you had friends I bet you'd like it too.
I don't have 2nd and 3rd worlders friends. I play with IRL friends.
there is no point in discussing it. its never going to happen
the reality of the situation is that russians, SEA monkeys, and south americans dont want to play with each other because they know how awful they are as people. and seeing as how they make up a good 50% of the playerbase minimum suddenly forcing them to play with each other without whites holding them together they will quit
Again, why would I want to play with peruvians and russians? You sound desperate.
>there is no point in discussing it. its never going to happen
Of course not, the majority of the community consists of 2nd and 3rd worlders and Valve wouldn't want to piss them off.
However it's a shame since the community will remain shit forever for this very reason.
>tfw random the worst hero in the game
Why doesn't icefrog just delete him?
>people who don't max OD's passive first
>people who max zeus' passive last
>always the worst players on the team that have been the most useless that say "cmon don't give up"
Maybe you shouldn't give up if you're so great?
Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Totalbiscuit. We have been working on this DOTA set for about a year now with @ravafx. It's been through many stages of refinement and we finally have it in a place where we're happy to put it up for Workshop vote. The set took various inspirations that fit Pudges character, from Jack the Ripper to Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street (who baked his victims into pies, seems very Pudge-like to me).
We felt that Pudge as well as taking his victims skin might like to try on their clothes as well from time to time, after all, he has a strange sense of humour. Unfortunately, they kinda don't fit, but Pudge doesn't mind. It's certainly one of the more outlandish sets to be submitted but definitely not the most out of character. Surgeon Pudge and that weird viking/gladiator barrel Pudge thing are both in the game so we didn't think this was pushing it too far.
If you'd like to vote for it to make it into DOTA by all means. It's a collab for everyone involved and we fully endose it.
>"I'm a pro carry once I've got Radiance we'll win"
>Supports win the game while he still doesn't have a radiance 35 mins in
>Pudge becomes cancerous in the meta
>TB set shows up
>tinker feeds first blood and goes 0-10 and dies every time he tries to push a lane
>30 mins nothing but bots ring and bottle
>i play tinker all the time i'm normally much better than this!
He's the worst or the best carry depending on the enemy team.
If they invest in a lot of single target disables and that kind of shit, then picking him is a great way to go around and delete the enemy team.
If they pick AoE ur fucked m8 lel
No but really he need some kind of buff to be anything more than that guy that gets picked in 2% of games, and just increasing his damage numbers won't help.
Earthshaker completely and utterly fucks him so hard it's not even funny.
Maybe he gets special illusions that take 50% damage from magical sources but 200% from other sources, and count as creeps. Like, they're a special summon type unit like Golems or Necro units rather than illusions.
>point out multiple strategic errors in the last team fight
>your own included
>don't worry guys we've got this next one, I'll put some wards up and buy a smoke

>feeds out of control
>he says 10min in "why do i get these bad teams"
It's not endorsing when he clearly says "We have been working on". He actively had a part in designing it.
> that fit Pudges character
No they fucking don't, he's a barely-clothed disgusting abomination, he wouldn't be wearing anything remotely fancy.
What if alchemist got greevils greed gold from denies?
It's just a fucking set. Everyone and their dog has a set now.
You should be bothered about the announcer pack

>implying this wouldnt make dota infinitely better
why doesnt valve JUST DO IT
i'm more bothered that as far as i know he's not actually played dota for about 2 years or talked about it on his channel.
so this seems like a very cynical cash grab.
then again i heard chemo was expensive.
Just as it's not balanced now it wasn't balanced then. That being said WC3 dota was for the most part not played in the tryhard, "modern" manner. Furthermore heroes that are now very different were balanced around being mirrors of their sentinel/scourge counterparts.
which hero would star best as an anime Protag?
I'm thinking Juggernaut, and he uses Omnislash at the end of every episode to defeat someone else.
DAILY FUCKING REMINDER THIS GAME IS A FUCKING LOAD OF SHIT AND WANTS TO REWARD GOOD PLAYERS WITH SHIT PLAYERS
Are some heroes still like that?
Because if you don't say -ap at the start of the game, then you are forced to pick sentinel and scourge heroes. What if they brought this back? It would be pretty good wouldn't it?
>everyone realised DP wasn't broken after one day
I'm trying to think of a team composition that puts the four Fundamentals together, Io, KotL CK and Enigma, but it's kind of difficult. KotL can't solo offlane, you could put Elder Titan there as a solo offlaner, but then KotL has to mid, and I'm not sure how that would work.
don't be that "LET ME PLAY THE GAME MY OWN WAY" guy
when they push out of base while we have megas on the tier 4's, do I just sit there trying to deal with it on my own? no
and for the same reason you don't just let the juggernaut waste his ultimate on the skywrath with a ghost sceptre every fight
Do you mean five fundamentals?
I could mid for you
>not going mid with FREE autoattack damage ice ghost
Just got 8.4k building damage on my 3d game of lycan. Did I do good?
still threw with 10k gold in the bank and no BKB because my team didnt deserve to win
Did I do good?
has any'noe else been getting 5k games where people who have 4k hours of dota logged onto their accounts play like complete and utter shit?
i'm talking about like snipers with 0 map awareness who die 8 times in 4 minutes and the like. this is happening a lot more frequently now.
>using the word transgender as if it were legitimate
sorry you cant escape the negative connotation of transsexual by pretending gender is a social construct. you are a mentally ill freak that wants to cut off your penis, youre not a victim.
>knowing anything about science
Gender IS a social construct. You think females are genetically predisposed to playing with dolls or cooking? You're confusing gender with sex.
Transgender is a real word.
> You think females are genetically predisposed to playing with dolls or cooking?
Yes, they are.
Only sissy cuck male feminist and jew psycologist believe otherwise.
Source, I am peruvian.
Hey guys, Dota bot coder dude back. Sorry for the enormous delay between my updates.
The bot has finally learned how to play Techies. He can project hero movement in fog and while invisible. He can immediately tell when and where sentry wards are placed and deny all bounty to opponents (but only if he's not close enough to Force Staff them beforehand). He not only understands common player behavior, but adapts to the very playstyle of his opponents as the game plays out (mostly for how they react to a minefield sign). Of course, flawless mine kill threshold knowledge is included. He also projects when his opponents are likely to surpass these thresholds in the near future, and will place extra mines before it becomes an issue.
Up next is Meepo, to be followed by Storm, and lastly our very own pos 1 Abaddon meme.
>You think females are genetically predisposed to playing with dolls or cooking?
not my fault, they can stop doing it whenever they like
but they wont, and you cant do a damn thing about it, but sure act like this isnt an objective fact faggot. B)
>five and a half hours until esports and im already starting to feel a little tired
