    Kunkka always looks really fun when I watch other people play him

    And then I try him and I'm just not a fan at all

    I'm gonna start playing Ogre more for supporting. Bloodlust scales insanely insanely well late game with any hard carry. Plus laning phase is just ridiculous.

    We faced a WK with a supporting ogre and LC press the attack. GG.

    If the game goes late and you can pick up an aghs he has some pretty ridiculous lockdown/damage as well

    Also enjoyed that Veggies game, miles.

    Jungle Tide, straight stats lane support Enigma. Safelane Drow, Luna mid, forgot what they put offlane...

    Fun times.

    Has MSS even played 3 before? Wasn't he the 2 on Shazam?

    In his early career, Arif 'MSS' Anwar quickly made a name for himself by standing in for well-known American teams like Team Liquid and Evil Geniuses. He was one of the top offlaners in the NA region before taking a break from the professional scene to focus on college. A promising player and a force to be reckoned with, MSS returns this year and will be playing the offlane position for Team NP.

    He's probably the best player on that team tbh.

    That was a fun game. 74 minutes with a mid Lion (Merlini) and safelane carry Treant. I think they randomed 4 supports and somehow beat a global strat.

    Just been playing some bot matches to try to improve my farming.

    Went from jugg to messing around with weaver and I had no idea how bad weaver's attack point is. Man, that is actually a huge adjustment.

    You mean move-attack? I started after seeing every single pro player do it.

    nah, there's an option you can turn on that hitting A just makes you attack wherever your mouse is close to/on. Seems beneficial for things like move attacking and denying but also might be more trouble than it's worth for me right now.

    Been having connection issues the past couple nights, and I'm not good with network issues.

    Essentially my connection drops in team fights (heavy download/upload scenarios.) As best I can figure, this is packet loss. The problem resolved when I reset both the modem and router, but occurs again in the next team fight setting.

    Tonight I'm going to try running straight of my modem to make sure the router is truly the issue.

    As it stands, I've updated my router's firmware and restarted everything numerous times. That's the extent of my technical ability.

    Any other suggestions?

    Some in here might be able to get a few things out of this video. Purge coaching a 2.7k player which is right around where a lot tmb'ers are. There's a lot of obvious problems like missing easy last hits, but there's some good stuff in there too. I had no fucking idea eating an iron branch tree with a tango makes it heal twice as much.

    Just had one of the most fun games I've played in awhile. 60 minute back and forth end game team fights for last 20 minutes. Ended up losing but was fun as hell. Thinking I went wrong getting MKB instead of heart or AC end game.

    Also harass their laner with W as much as possible. You may lose some last hits but you can completely drive them out of the lane and get a big xp advantage

    So I just played a game with a guy with 624 MMR. He just demolished our team as an AM. Look at his yasp/opendota account: until 4 games ago he had match data turned off, then turns it on and goes rapes a couple of ranked games like 31-4, 19-4, our 10-0 game then 20-0. Dude bought a 600 MMR account lol. His buddy had a 1.4K account so I'm sure he wanted to party with him, but dude was clearly ahead of the game average of 3.2k. Like light years ahead.

    Here's his opendota/yasp

    Then immediately after that we had a cliff jungling Mirana and a regular jungling Morph so I lost safe as Drow to dual Jugg/CW and top Kunkka got raped by PA/necro

    The type of game that makes you want to take a looooong break from dota
