    Skill cap is huge. Super fun hero though. I can’t play the hero and not have fun, like playing dagon SB

    Had a Lion first pick mid, he's DotaPlus level 25.

    He decimates mid, up 3-0 on their Veno. our BS carry has a 6 minute midas and an early radiance.

    Our pos 5, ss, takes the 10 minute tome. SS is level 5, our mid Lion is level 11.

    "GG SS STOLE TOME WALKING MID"

    Lion then feeds 15 deaths walking mid and we lose.

    Also when all 9 of us threatened reports he said "This isnt even my main account"

    (It had 4 arcanas and a level 25 Lion dotaplus. Pretty sure he's just a huge piece of shit)

    lol, just my annual break from the game. I got annoyed by how bad matchmaking had been after the seasonal reset, but I'll be back to my abusive relationship soon enough.

    My friends and I finally upgraded from Civ 5 to Civ 6, and I’m still trying to finish Pillars of Eternity 2, but I end up bored with those and queue for some Dota instead

    sold a bunch of my dota hats for $150. Probably have another 100-150 still in there.

    I think spent like 800+ over 7 years

    I don’t really have anything pricey. I have all the TI immortals since 2016 and that’s about it. I sold back almost every treasure instead of opening duplicates and I’m pretty sure I’m neutral cash wise from TIs, but I didn’t make my money back from any of the seasonal battle passes. + I’ve had DOTA Plus for 4 months. Probably ~$100 over 3 years.

    One of the best changes to the game in a while was giving TP's and BoT separate cooldowns. Almost single handedly made split pushy strats viable again after the multiple years of deathball/5 man meta.

    Before my break I basically started playing batrider for the first time in pubs because the BoT 2nd/3rd item build is so good where you can shove a lane, wait for players to TP and defend, then TP back and get a pickoff or take a fight with a numbers advantage.

    It's interesting because I so rarely see BoTs anymore now that TPs got their own item slot, freeing up a spot for TPs. And yet, they are stronger than ever before.

    Also, it's hard to remember how miserable life was playing support with 6 item slots, no TP slot, no backpack, and always having to carry a TP.

    Wards, TP, boots, dust, stick... you get 1 empty item slot for something. Wind lace, raindrops both were more recent item additions, but I just remember never having any fucking room ever. Never carried smoke, always had to fly and use from courier.

    So many amazing QoL changes.
