    So I am in love with the new Drow.

    Already liked the hero, and now it sped up farm speed incredibly with the insta-Ancient killing ult. The XP advantage is so key on the hero.

    I wasn't sure if it was a little nerf or little buff, but I thought reddit was way overreacting when everyone called the hero dead. Just became a lot more situational, which is good. Hard carries shouldn't be 1st pick material/average to good against any lineup.

    Do you go MoM or something first item? I haven't played it yet but I figured something with a bunch of attack speed would accelerate you a lot with the proc chance.

    who has room for a MoM with treads and five wraith bands?

    No MoM, Start 6 tangos and 3 slippers.

    Then I finish 3 WBs, get treads, then Dragon lance. You attack so fast there's no need for MoM and it's reduced armor.

    Then I like SB if I need escape, but love getting Manta, MKB, Satanic, Butterfly.

    I should get BKB, but I'm bad.

    If you get a good start the game is over, but once I got shit on because I played it offlane but doesn't matter once you hit 6.

    Handcuffed and I were talking, the changes have made dota arguably less enjoyable. I feel like if I’m not picking a top tier meta hero it’s not enjoyable. Playing support feels worse, despite gold changes. With cores getting such early stat items you feel more worthless sooner unless you are playing Lich, Dazzle, CM, Lion, maybe Bane/SS.

    There’s so many “meme” heroes right now they are in literally every game.

    Honestly not thrilled with 7.2, but I really enjoy playing OP heroes so i’ll Keep spamming Drow, Slark, and Luna.

    went 5-0 tonight playing MK (90k damage, same as sniper), PA x2 (26-3 in one of them...), Drow (boring game where entire team wanted to farm our jungle so it kind of sucked), and Rubick.

    I'm warming up to the patch a little bit but the OP heroes are really fucking op. Still think the game would be better without talents and the admin could focus on just balancing the game better.
