Dota 2 Thread: REBORN SOURCE 2 HYPETRAIN NOBRAKES

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

I have not played yet. First impressions are RIP junglers, experience is now more important than gold (there are some stupidly strong talents), and diffusal blade not purging just killed PL forever.
Part of the problem.

My friends and I tested some super janky interactions with new morph.

If you get an aghs then you get upgrades to non ult abilities when you morph a hero like sk or lone druid. You also, unlike with wisps new talent, get new abilities. My favorite thing we’ve found is that you can buy an aghs, morph lifestealer, consume an ally, and unmorph. They stay inside you. And what’s more, you can morph ls again and consume someone else because when you remorph him it doesn’t remember that you already used it. So you can literally have morphling serve as a vehicle for his entire team.

In terms of actual games we played 3 games yesterday. My favorite was a pos 5 shadow demon game (I picked it as a counter pick to dark willow) where I got a ton of space to farm with 1 second cool down shadow poison. With aghs and the level 25 talent he can nuke three people for 900 pure damage. It’s pretty absurd.

ez dark willow guide:

go mid, start with tango+wand

get a point in shadowrealm, then a point in brambles, then one in cursed crown, then max brambles. once you hit 6 you can kill the enemy mid easily with brambles + ult (the spinny shooty one not the fear)

for items go phase boots > orchid > nullifier > (linkens/bloodthorn/solarcrest)

get the +200 attackspeed at 25

general gameplan is throw brambles at enemies, phaseboots right up to them and ult for massive spinny shooty damage. if you get ganked, shadowrealm and phase away. brambles and cursed crown are good for teamfights, and if you're in trouble you can always just fear the enemy team.

earlygame you rely on your ult for damage but once you get bloodthorn+nullifier you can do massive rightclick damage and when you hit 25 for the +200 atkspeed talent you can manfight pretty much anyone with orchid+nullifier and rightclick the helpless silenced+muted+slowed enemy.

cursed crown isn't as good as you think it is and you should max it last but it's worth one value point earlygame.

remeber to gank often, at level 6 you can kill anyone on the map with brambles+phaseboots+ult

Cursed crown is I think a bigger deal on support willow. It’s pretty scary to deal with a 2 second stub at lvl1 for certain offlaners.

But it becomes less significant as people build escapes.

So I don't post much here anymore. But I did want to note a milestone.


I started playing dota 2 four years ago. I played a bit with BBMolla.


I don't know if he realizes this, but that was before Ranked MM, and I had only played 75 games when I first played the first one with him..

I just looked through those games. I built brown boots, soul ring, and Vlad's on CM 5 games in a row. I built Sange and Yasha, Halberd, and Butterfly on BH 15 games in a row.

I only ever bought boots of travel. The rest of the boots added too many buttons. And back then.... I didn't actually use the keyboard. I clicked abilities.

Today I have 2,800 games. I had a 40% winnrate for most of my dota career. Today it's at 50.23%. And i'm 3k, from 1800 a year ago.


I'm also kinda proud to say, that my versatility rating almost never drops below 8. Last night was the second time I've gotten above 3k. I did it on a 5 game winning streak. BS, Zues, Jugg, Lich, SF, and PL.


The only heroes to repeat in my last 20 games are invoker x3 and BS x2.


I'm seriously so excited and feel accomplished. IDK where the climb will stop, but I'm excited.


.....Fuck.....


Seasonal Ranked.


In other news. Storm Spirit lvl 25 with 30 charges is fucking dope.

Yeah the new mana regen change is bonkers. Storm + CM is super super broken.

You can just zip zoop and don't even have to right click half the time.

versatility 8 is impressive... mine generally hovers around 0.1, and never goes above 1

Builds 4 years were different. BH used to be my most played hero by far back then with like 65% win rate, and my build was phase deso heart. Physical dmg build BH was how you killed people back then.


For dark willow, if you really want to play her mid, I've seen phase euls. If you so much as get seen by a dark willow as a support you're dead, because she'll just crown you, euls bramble and ult you to death.

Out of the two new heroes though pangolier by far the more broken one.

Lol rtz, is he still a flamer in pubs? I haven’t seen his stream in forever.

In other news, I actually play this game now. Gave away my pc a year and a half ago as I was too busy to play games. Getting another this upcoming week. I’ve followed pro scene but that doesn’t mean I have any practical skills, just an understanding of things.

Disclaimer: I still suck, probably worse than all of you. I do know what all the heroes and most of the items do now and I don’t believe my builds are awful (but I just use the guides lol). If anyone wants to play (non-ranked only though), playing with people who speak English would be great and I’d love to learn more if there’s anything to be taught. I’d also just like to play with some of you since I don’t think I ever did when I first posted 6 years ago. Steam profile. Cheers.

No, he was quite positive and appreciative of my giant stacked camp.

Then again, our pos4 did work.

Waiting for valve to pull the hero of the season thing

Like, he updates it every 2 weeks or someshit then at the end of the update the final patch just gives us the new hero without announcement

dota2 has changed so much. I recently played a game and it looks completely different and better.
In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power, the passion, the danger. Her courage will change the world -Xena Warrior Princess, Coming Soon!!
