>Forget to pick a carry that's halfway decent with him
>Have to settle for gyro
>Forget to pick a support like bane that can lock down puck and juggernaut and make up for the fact that their lanes are crap
>Give meme spirit to jeraxx because hurr thas muh hero
>Give le surrender french monkey man the worst mid hero this tournament
>All of a sudden dark seer gets shut down
Arteezy was right.
>[A] player is doing well on using an unusual hero
>B-BUT THEY'RE JUST LUCKY BECAUSE OF THE PATCH
>>Linken's is a farming item
Items that give you both manareg and hp reg
So which item do you go for on Weaver?
>excited to make some fresh memes
>pick tusky dusky
>void is picked on my team
>first time void
>"im a girl btw"
>convince void to swap for my beloved dusky and have to play stupid void so we have a chance
>do okay but just never have enough damage and get bursted down like a bitch a few times
theres just no logical reason you would pick this hero when you could pick say, WK instead. unless enemy team is weaver skywrath mage or something.
i had fun even though i lost. i'm trying to have a positive attitude! Yosh!
I even told tusk that she did a good job.
better watch it bruv I ll smack ya round
you can see the catheter right there
But it's true. This patch entirely supports Alliance's playstyle.
>Return to push dota
>Run a three-core style with S4 on an aggressive hero, bulldog on a greedy offlane and Loda on a greedy safelane
The absence of a particularly strong set of heroes like in pervious patches helps too, but wisp being good; chen being good; prophet finding traction and lone druid finding traction? It's entirely Alliance's patch.
Honestly this is all futrher proof that icefrog is dead.
Icefrog died, the rest of valve took over. The rest of valve are redditors and only care about getting their dicks sucked by le reddit. As a result, everything reddit bitches about gets changed and the game is slowly becoming league of legends.
Now, they literally make a patch to deliberately buff Te[A]m Reddit, an otherwise dogshit irrelevant t3 team. Could they be more blatant about it?
Did Bulldog just fuck them with that throw? If ES gets Aghs going highground becomes hard as fuck.
more like loda is absolute dogshit and cannot even outfarm anyone in a game the other team was never ahead as a fucking bfury jug
alliance lost this and its all becaoseu of how dogshit loda is
even bulldog would have like 50% more farm as a jug this game
>Based Jerax getting Our Guys back into the game
What now, redditors?
>Implying Earth Spirit should not be removed from this game.
He said GO MEN BECAUSE HE WANTS A BUNCH OF DUDES TO FUCK HIM RATHER THAN BUYING THIS PIECE OF SHIT STARCRAFT 2 FUCK YOU BLIZZARD FOR SPLITTING IT IN 3 EXPANSION FOR FULL PRICE FUCK THIS FUCK THIS I AM OUT
You can't be THIS 2k. Seriously you just can't.
>implying it can
>implying those don't instadie in that fight
>implying they can do a 2k range stun on the jugg to kill him again
>all of Bulldog's heroes get banned
>forced to play Weaver
>he builds a Linkens when the enemy team has a grand total of TWO targeted spells
>builds Diffusal for no reason
>doesn't go Desolator
>doesn't go BKB
Alliance does it again!
The biggest crime the boomers seem to have commited is to have told people to get a job when there are few if I go by what the internet tells me. Which goes to show that one of the worst things you can do to another person is offend them.
Remember the time when comebacks were not every game ? That was the time... No real hype since that fucking patch
It was obvious that Alliance would throw the game with that line up. It'd like my pub games, tactical feed they call it
>-4% max hp drain per second
>that goes through bkb
secret was literally second last major
they are now top1 to win the next one since og is a one tourny team
just because they lose in sunday cups doesnt mean they are in the dumpster lmao
>every Secret 2.0 player is doing well except for Puppey
What a coincidence.
Loda has been there from the start. He has invented 50% of all metas in Dota history.
Now there is that untalented punk kid abusing a completely broken thing in the game.
He is way above shitstains like Jerax abusing things that should not be in the game
>stay up all night watching EG
>pass out on the couch
>it's only game one of cucklliance/liquid
what the actual fuck happened overnight, that's like seven hours
It's not that strong.
Plus DPs lategame is pretty lacklustre, you can tank those ghosts ez.
>Black dragon fire spell does 85 damage per second
But she doesn't have enough mana! And she lost her speed! And her ultimate is worse now! And all she got for it was a useless charge based spell! Also no one will pick Oracle, he is just bad Dazzle.
-/vg/ after the patch
reminder all you have to do to get on a top pro team is just spam a freshly added hero and get good at it
jerax had like a 40 winning streak on kaolin when he was added and look at him now
if he didnt have that streak reddit wouldnt know about him and he wouldnt end up on any team
REMINDER WHEN THE NEXT HERO CREATED BY VALVE GETS ADDED TO JUST PLAY THOUSAND GAMES ON IT AND ENJOY FREE PRIZEPOOL/SPONSORSHIP MONEY
because i cant find the cute pic of dp
>finals will be alliance v EG
thanks for the free lan, I guess
it's weird because i feel like all ES pickers think he's not even that good since they're so used to his old mega strong iterations.
he's just normal right now. lots of heroes get much stronger with aghs. wd for example.
>Alliance is once again the best team in the world
maybe this meta isn't so bad
>It's a "Madman Gyrocopter vs the entire world" episode.
>Alliance is back
I'm pretty fucking happy honestly
>SAVE THE GAME MULTIPLIE TIMES
See how shit DP still is?
Her ghosts become pathetic so quickly.
Her winrate at Starladder has gotta be like sub 30%
Actually I would be posting a reminder but I don't have the picture. Can someone post it please? It was pic related with EG's faces.
It's called representing the hair not 100% obscuring the eye
Like, you couldn't expect the artist to draw the 100 different spaces between every hair that allows her to see out
Reminder that Puppey is not the king of honeypot lan
Reminder that TI3 is the biggest honeypot lan
Reminder that S4 is true king of honeypot lan
>TUSK AND ES ABUSER SHITSTAIN MONGOL FUCKING EXPOSED
>CAN'T EVEN WIN WITH HS ONLY HERO
>FINLAND 0 OLYMPIC HOCKEY GOLD MEDALS
It's hot though can't wait for the same to happen to Llama.
>yfw master drafter ppd has created all the strats to counter these 2nd tier teams
Never schedule EG to play first.
loda is shit
thats about it
loda cannot outfarm his offlane as bfury juggernaut where they were ahead the entire time
its not that bulldog had amazing farm, its that loda HAD NO FARM
>disguising ur position 1 as offlane
>disguise their position 1 as midlane
>disguise position 1 as jungle
next ti winner will disguise their position 1 as roamer
ppd will throw this final senpai
He is not that stupid to show all his cards
>literally a match to see who gets to lose to EG in the grand final
liquid please take this series, i hate to see this alliance garbage in tournaments, somehow they always manage to worm their way in and win some important games while providing the most garbage dota to watch, fuck alliance
how are u guys still flaming bulldog
he went 15-4
who the fuck cares what he built lmao
>but he could have done better!!!
yea so could usain bolt but who gives a fuck
also i think his build is fine
>tfw perfect female height
Time to trap I guess
Death Prophet is my girlfriend bro. Back off.
Great waifu, after you die you just end up having ghost orgy sex forever with her ult.
>secret eliminated and shitters like cucklliance and throwG are advancing
ITS NOT FUCKING FAIR
>decide to sleep when gun game turns on after EG defeats lgd.
>wake up 6 hours later and only missed one Alliance versus Liquid game.
Also fuck the summer. >have shower
>be sweaty an hour later.
>picking the 2 heroes with the highest pick rate but lowest winrate
>dp now with 26% and gyro with 23%
>they actually expected to win
>literally only bandwagoning one memeteam
>not just enjoying good dota
this is my smurf i just calibrated
post me your main lmao
i'm sure this is higher but i can post my main if u follow up
I build diffusal on Weaver all the time if there's a BH or Slardar, so I don't have to rely on Time Lapse to get rid of the debuff. Slow also works wonders and double mana burn reks people.
>teams keep drafting that double penetration french ghost
>d2g keeps whining about how OP she is
>these teams keep losing games
not super sweaty just that damn cool feeling like one hasn't dried off in the shower.
Enough to make it a bit annoying with sheets.
BULLDONG I GIVE YOU MY ENERGY FROM NEW ZEALAND.
was born here cuz
it was 35 degrees celcius at night here about a week ago
my air conditioner leaks. I've played a bucket beneath it
my two options are to burn to death or slowly go insane from the DRIP DRIP DRIP sound
>meanwhile dp picking prophet again
there is no cap you tard thats why oracle abusers ruined high 5k low 6k games
you are actually clueless, valve just nerfs the most popular methods and they already nerfed oracle too
soon something else will get fined out and nerfed next
stop talking kid u are clueless
Really pro teams are such shit nowadays. Only EG barely respects the audience and that's when they're on.
Looking back, TI4 had so many great teams on the main event that the current scene seems like a joke. It got panned for its stomp finals but the concentration of great teams and teams on top form in that tournament was among the highest in Dota2 history.
>Implying PPD doesn't control every aspect of the team
No PPD = Shit EG
She's our guy.
Also, more feminine than Sheever, Soe or Kelly.
Is Mason ignored the throw order real or just a meme?
is that a modification of a trap or trans subhuman? Not sure because yeah.
Could others confirm? because I want to know if I want to wish that this poster gets shot and ran over by lions and lit on fire by his wife's son.
>Alliance vs EG in the finals
I bet this fucker is pleased.
>/d2g/ prefers a man with fake lips and tits over an actual cute girl just because she cut her hair
Are you this insecure about your sexuality?
But that was the whole appeal of it. VG discovering the memepush and going so balls-deep with it to the point they were winning games in 15 minutes in a meta where the bread&butter was supposed to be lategame stalemates, and the fact they had so much confidence in themselves to succeed at it and STOMP the dominant teams, is one of the best stories of TI history. Actually WATCHING them dismantle the whole meta that DK and EG had created over a year was so, so good.
Newbee just played vs them like they'd been playing, pure form, and won by outskilling. But even then, games 1 and 2 of the GF were extremely high level and coulld've gone either way off small details.
I don't get it. How does he have the TI trophy if it's from 2014 and eg won TI5?
