what was original posts?

Who would be the best hero to main while trying to focus on learning the game?
I've been playing for ages so I have decent general knowledge already but need to work on game sense, decision making and mechanics.
I'd prefer to do it with a mid hero or an offlaner.

Help I can't stop talking in memes
Memes are the wildcard of words you can drop a meme in place of many nouns and get a sentence understandable by the most advanced meme processor on earth, the human brain
Your're in captain's mode drafting against this guy. What do you do?
well d2g, i for one hate jews everywhere, but yet I respect them, the ability to brainwash msot of the fucking planet is something you cant help but admire. There's probably cucks reading this going "anti semitist" while not realising how fucking brainwashed they are.
>mfw 4chan accidently human language understandable globally
thats a me me i can meme for
ive never thought i'd see the day where graveler, is posted on d2g. he's my favourite pokemon, t-thanks anon.
i overheard funny, yet inspiring talk today
One guy was talking some nonsense about religion and how hindu worship hundred gods etc and so on, 2 guys were laughing about him talking about shit no one cares about.
Somewhere between 4th guy heard those 2 guys laughning and asked them, "and which God are you guys worshipping ? money ?"
That gave me quite depressing thought, that slavery is still a thing, all over the world. Except its not whip making you do shit that you dont want to do. Its the money.
I know i didnt discovered anything revolutionary, but what is truly depressing, is that people have no clue...
In the end everything will fade away. Even time, so why bother with this life if reincarnation isnt a thing ?
I wish Drow was my mom, things would be different aroun here.

"I think PPD. -blushes and looks away- I think there's a lot on his shoulders... like all the time. You may not see it, but he has to think of the draft - he does all the drafting by himself. He has to, like, guide the game for us. He tells us what to do. He's a real leader. Other teams don't have leaders and maybe that's why they're not as good as us."

nothing matters in the end, but i was born so you know wtf may as well enjoy it . probs aliens ayy lmao past us and theyre like oh cute a species. hey wanna take a visit? nah who cares, gotta pick up silicone brain transufsions in the next 2 parsevx anyway bro, ok man ayy lmao!!

HOW CAN YOU NOT THINK SHE IS ADORABLE?
SHE IS 5K MMR SOON TO BE A CS MAJOR AND SHE LOOKS PRETTY QT.
Insil is our queen.
depends on how much money you are willing to spend. if you got like 50 bucks you can havea pretty good deck or can at least make one off gate. if you are trying to grind the cards out it takes a lot longer unless your playing arena and then its all up to how well you can manage a deck
I've been playing Hots instead of dota recently
Its the same basic game, but removes the frustration elements. And since its so much more casual, you dont feel as bad when a retard teammate throws the game.
The game seems to have a much stronger focus on "Fun" rather than competitiveness. Which is nice. Because I'm not competing for money, I'm trying to have fun.
I just dont think I can go back to dota at this point just to face another jugg/troll matchup while valve blames the community for not fixing pathfinding bugs for them in blog posts
What is with all the 3.4k blogposting lately?
Is this a new meme that I am not aware of?

wtf did I do wrong as bristlebong
I went full farm vacuum and I don't know what i did wrong despite farming all I could
Is it not having AC ? I'm sure there's something else
- StarLadder qualifers
- The Summit qualifiers
- ESL One qualifiers
- Dota Pit
- Dota Champions League
Remember, no oversaturation at all.
Okay i should go and stack ancient if I trouble against the safelane support
How fast can he clear the ancient and what relation does it have with having vlad ?
I was searching of a way to boost my LH thx
Nah dude I usually have sucess and this build doesn't look good to me
Plus I had a good team who kinda fucked up at time but not flame worthy since they were always better than me
I just kinda tilted at the mjoll voker, hex or refresher would have been better as far as i know
As long as Valve doesn't change the workshop/hat system there will be a gorillian tournaments to promote some useless pixels.
And btw le oversaturaion meme is relate to 2gd or memestudios not LD
Why aren't you playing WW the goodmorphling d2g?
>forced 50 doesnt exist guys
>if someone feeds on purpose its your fault
Found your problem, get a snowball carry o pl and win the dammit game by yourself.
I don't deserve to have these teammates
Why the fuck is matchmaking so broken
Fuck this shit game
If you actually wanna win games it revolves more around getting the best out of your teammates and playing with what you got.
Pub-dota is something completely different from competetive and you need to be good at playing with strangers rather than just being the best on the team.
If you rage before your throne is being destroyed you ask to lose the game.
c9 won a couple of games with trash7 on np at dac
this was the most notable game
to win that game you had to take control of the enemy jungle so PA and AM could farm.
The doom looks like he was farming and he had three deaths, you didn't ward their jungle or gank him, you didn't dominate the map to give space to your team.
You lost because of your poor decisions.
we had 1 carry and np wasnt doing shit except tping to lane and dying to nyx
and over and over and over
later he dced, came back and teleported a bunch of couriers to the enemy fountain for NO REASON
tell me again how this is my fault
>Tinker, in general
I've officially been triggered
you flamed him enough to make him lose interest and wanting to grief.
You didn't help in a good manner, triggering the following events.
You didn't move from your lane, complaining about the situation and being unhelpful.
You lost because of your poor decisions.
>2 ally carries get easily shutdown by the enemy's Doom
>let him farm up blink, aghanims, and refresher
>meanwhile, you farm kills on storm and necro
Kills don't win you games scrublord
Some games are unwinnable. This might be one of them.
Fact is that you will have people completely tilting and doing things like dc'ing or feeding or afking on the opposite team aswell.
weaver is versatile enough right now that you can get away with a lot of shit with 4th/5th picks.
venge lion weaver is a strong enough tri to survive early chen aggression if they choose to go aggro, all while shutting down jugg (troll is harder but you can choose to not go tri)
weaver as a mid is probably one of the better heroes to lane against sniper with if you want to go for a lategame draft.
I'm obviously not going to go for a solo offlane weaver because that's retarded, but as a safelane carry weaver does somewhat well now since peter hasn't drafted skywrath mage in forever. If he doesn't pick axe in the first 2 picks (which I guess should be one of my first 2 bans instead of bat/storm) then I can easily get away with a radiance weaver that gets super fat.
I feel like there's still a lot of variations to go on in this meta, even if it's all going to revolve around sniper troll jugg axe until 6.84.
>Playing against a team with 2341324507 AoE slows and stuns
>Playing against a team with even more magic damage
>Doesnt build a BKB
The team let you down 100% you deserved to win that one my friend.
How the fuck was I supposed to gank their carries when my teammates were retarded enough to get 2 hard carries.
Me, Earthshaker, and Rubick were hopelessly outgunned by their draft early game.
Doom was literally nowhere in sight until he had aghanims and blink.
And Rubick and PA somehow kept getting caught out by Jug's ult whenever I wasn't looking
>All disables now also work on buildings
How would the game change
How to fix Pudge, the butcher:
- Meat hook now has 1/2/3/4 charges
- Charge replenish time is 20 at all levels
- Dismember can now be used on allies to make them and Pudge invulnerable and does not go on cooldown
- Rot now does 5/7/9/11% of your max HP as AOE magical damage
- Flesh heap can now be activated to remove all stacks and gain a bonus 50 gold for each
>Doom was literally nowhere in sight until he had aghanims and blink.
GEE I WONDER WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU HAVE TO FUCKING DO
You won your lane, congratulations retard, but you weren't useful at all, you focused on that shitty storm and their 5th possition support.
weaver is probably one of the few heroes that can trade well against sniper (the other being lone druid)
I mean everyone knows "shrapnel + right click somehow takes away a third of your hp per cast", but germinate + shukuchi does that too - especially given how little hp sniper has to begin with.
dude i love synderen but hes so bad at dota :(
>Get matched with a mid or feed pudka that skips bottle and goes straight to force staff
>Farm jungle anyway out of a losing lane
I think I'm going to build a troll shrine in my room, boys.

Sauce: Pic related
Lina spam + Necro cancer aura
Game is hard sometimes.
Also cunt related
objectivelly and figuratively not true
not really, takes some time to get used to and get the "feel" of spells that you need atm.
In current meta with memeback gold its win mid game lose late game hero
He's not either of those.
You just have to autistic enough to memerize 10 spells and all their comboes, then change build according to situation.
Even then all his spells get fucked over by BKB.
Tell your friend that you don't need his garbage opinions, then defriend him.
>tfw can't stop stomping bads as the most underpowered hero in Dota 2.
Anon, you're triggering my vietnam-dota PTSD!
I really regret not playing more quickscope man before the headshot nerf.
biggest range of melee attack if that counts
other than that game is balanced
>bigger attack range than TA which is ranged hero
Yes, he is pretty much the hardest hero to play. No, he is not the best one since heroes are good or bad depending on the situation.
Pic related, the official list of hard heroes to play.
spec shouldn't be there
yeah it has fucked up laneing stage, but if you survive that you are a god and game is over
and it depends more on your support, unless you are playing with shitters
TA should have 5 on positioning, and 1 more point in surviving.
i'd put maybe visage on that list, plus its prob missing a few in there
thankfully we have porn sites to clarify it for us
Go easy lane or mid, woods can do aswell, tho your farm will be shit until lvl 6, but you'll give your allies more exp and farm by not being on the lane. You should farm woods exp-wise as fast as you'd fast duo lane. If you go woods be sure your team can survive without you for a while, also make sure you have a ward to not to die in the wood.
Build PT+MoM as a core, then go for yasha. Mom helps you escape if you're about to get ganked, gust helps aswell. In the deep lategame you can build satanic+skadi+manta to be fat enough to not die in teamfights, in case no one is about to build an mkb - get bfly.
Also - position yourself well and don't try to outdamage enemy carries if you have anyone within 400 range.
i mean dotards have no one but themselves to blame, its not like there werent warnings
Alright nvm guys, my team picked luna for safe farm and ursa for jungle
needless to say it didnt take them long to end the game
good news is I won my 1v1 offlane vs their clinkz.
such is life at 4,5k mmr
So what's the opposite of dead? Alive or Undead?
More regen is good for him while laning and jungling
The extra armor is incredibly good on him since he has next to none
Tranquils is incredibly fast even when broken
And is the cheapest upgrade to boots so it doesn't delay more important items
Phase is a good alternative but it means you won't last long in the jungle or lane unless you're getting runes or a source of healing other than Scourge Earth
midas is really not necessary on doom (especially in this patch having lots of levels can be counterproductive), tranqs give armor and health regen (and the movement speed is very good for ganking), soul ring lets you actually use your ganking creep skills AND doom.
i was talking about jungle doom, since doom is not a good offlaner imo.
