    Pro dota is a clusterfuck right now. Seemingly none of the old guard's teams in Europe or NA are any good.

    Sneyking is also captaining the otherwise European team that's also in WBF.

    My kid(s) are currently on a huge Minecraft phase and so I haven’t played dota in awhile.

    Big bkb nerf seems massive for pro meta, right? Extra 15 seconds is huge, feel like this is going to make games really fast. If enemy core uses bkb you can really punish them.

    allowing immortal effects with any set is a massive, massive change too

    BrickTamland where did you meet that truefury guy?

    i met a dude randomly in a game ("Lucifer") who seemed pretty chill and was an awesome support for me. but i guess he and truefury have some sort of beef and lucifer said truefury tried to harass and stalk him. i had a 67% win rate with Lucifer but he told me he was taking me off his friends list because he needs to avoid truefury.

    the guy seems a little weird in trying to keep super private but at the same time, truefury (who i added to my friends list maybe a month ago after we played with him) seems like a certified weirdo in my recent games with him.

    I’m uninstalling the game. I don’t remember who gave me the ogre arcana, RonBurgundy maybe? I want to give that back (arcana is complete now, blue ogre is yours.)

    The enjoyment I get out of winning is so much less than the anger I get from losing. Just not worth wasting my time on it. I’m too old and too busy to get better, and getting better would just put me up against better players anyway.

    Nah, I’m done. I’ve been thinking about this for a while.

    My brother stayed with me for a few weeks. He took over my office while he was in town because he works remote and needed the space. I was so happy those two weeks without dota. He left, I played a few matches, and was immediately miserable.

    It’s all my personality. I have a bad temper. It’s not worth playing anymore. The lows are so much worse than the highs, and it’s a huge time suck.

    I uninstalled last night. miles left a while ago. RonBurgundy left a year or two ago. BrickTamland left most recently. Playing dota solo can often suck.

    I had one very terrible game where I was lagging and, at min 1, asked for someone to swap. I was hoodwink (barely any hp) and died to a high-skill Arc Warden. Played shitty sidelane for the rest of the game. We got completely run over. Everyone flamed me and I was mass reported. Somehow, that gave me a comm abuse warning and I couldn't talk last night in the games I was playing. I'm not a rager or anything but getting shit on by shitty players (e.g. a PA who doesn't build bfury against a PL) and not being able to type anything was miserable.

    Immediately uninstalled.

    Dota's a pretty amazing game in optimal conditions, but Valve's fairly "meh" attitude toward making improvements to matchmaking kinda ruined it for me.

    I’ve been playing a lot recently:

    https://www.dotabuff.com/players/112963446

    I am really enjoying the game and the patch. I like the current meta. Very fight oriented.

    I have the opposite issue, I actually prefer solo queue ranked. Like the competition, but I only like to play support and I don’t like turbo. Makes party queue games really hard. I’m around my highest MMR ever right now and enjoying the game (Ancient 1).

    I don’t really get mad at teammates anymore, I just instantly mute anybody toxic and it works out well and prevents me saying anything to antagonize them more. I guess dealing with preteens at home has made me a better position 5 lol.

    I also haven’t seen many smurfs like Reddit complains about. Idk. Probably like 1 every 20 games at most.

    65 minute game, playing as pod 5 Zeus.
    Spec got super farmed and an early aghs. So he could solo jump me from minute 18. So hard. Was so hard to stay alive, spec haunt, solo haunt, refresher, could do both again.

    teams traded rapiers a couple of times.

    65 minute pudge with reworked damage block, 4.5K HP and a billion flesh heap stacks nearly unkillable. Global silence. Just pure chaos.


    So much fun. I fucking love Dota.

    -Also a BrickTamland classic rush greaves, keep your moron teammates alive game

    Game starts in classic fashion: Techies and OD laning top swearing at each other in Spanish/Portuguese mixture. Doom getting flamed for going mid so he starts all chatting about South America deserves to be poor and that they are all dumb because they have a poor education system.

    We are getting absolutely destroyed, haven't taken a single tower at like 30 minutes, massive net worth disadvantage, my team has no items.

    So, dire gets cocky, stops pushing as 5, we pick off a bunch randomly and then end up team wiping and proceed to take all of bot t1/t2/t3 and melee rax, Kunkka says he's afk in base because Weaver sucks and won't buy BKB, we take rosh and a few more towers, Weaver gets solo killed by techies and Dire all chat erupts, we win 2 more teamfights with golem/refresher and it's gg.

    Not sure I've ever seen a massively winnable game so easily completely flipped like that in a long, long time.
