    I’ve played only a handful of games since TI, but link your steam account and I’ll look through your dota items.

    I don’t think I have you on friends list anymore

    Think I’m gonna try to play tonight.

    I think these are bigger changes than Shrines + talents in 7.0.

    I like 90% of the patch but RNG jungle camps dropping items is fun for pubs but it’s going to fuck up the pro scene.

    this much RNG is not dota

    i actually really like the changes for the most part, and void spirit is fun as fuck to play

    pretty much have to relearn the entire game though

    I know this was a meme, but he's picked 47% of games, and has 54% win rate in 1 day of 7.23

    Trying to brainstorm how to optimally play void spirit. I don’t think he’s gonna be a great support. Tons of magic nuke but no team fight and not much utility.

    I think the play might be to go mid and build like leshrac with movespeed/magic amp. Problem with that though is you have no edict/building damage which you want as a mid.

    You could maybe even go Dagon. Get it early enough and you have enough magic damage to burst anyone on the map.

    games seem quite silly now.

    The best I’ve seen him played is as a 4, does good damage and hard to lock down. His little remnant thing is really good at controlling choke points in fights. Building pipe and aura items gives him team impact since he stays alive so easily in teamfights.

    cookie grandma is trash tho.

    cm, AM, ursa and Venge all nerfed in quick patch.

    yeah no one knows how to play optimally yet. Game is completely different. Intermittent jungling from 5-10 minute mark and courier sniping might end up being huge. Deep warding early super important since courier provides base gpm that’s lost when sniped.

    jungle is more open and hard to choke/control. I don’t even know if taking offlane t1 first is best anymore, given outposts.

    team fighting used to happen before 5 minute bounties, but now getting both outposts right before the 5 minute exp bonus is suuuuper important. Controlling outposts leads to snowballing like crazy.

    No one knows how to play with these changes yet. Gonna be a shit show for a month at least.

    What does a position 5 even do anymore? I saw some pros using flying courier at 15 to do all the warding and dewarding with shift queue commands since couriers can use items now.

    I honestly think we might end up seeing 2-1-2 lanes until 5 minutes then 2 man gank squads until teamfights start.

    Playing pos 5 feels amazing right now too. As a CM I had tranqs, double bracers and a cloak (into later glimmer) at like 10 minutes and had 50% magic resistance.
    Dewarding is ez because obs are free so I have tons of gold just sitting around

    Haven’t played it yet, but deep wards + NP = all dead couriers. NP seems busted right now too.

    Queue times seem a lot longer than they used to be. Turbo takes 5+ minutes. Ranked AP fast queue timer keeps resetting after 2-3 minutes even tho the game join doesn't pop up.

    Neutral items don’t really seem to be that big of an issue. I frequently forget outposts exist.
