Enigma and Sand King are fairly situational bans tbf. Invoker is pretty core though.

Had my worst game, right after a bad game...

Went Lina and was rocking, saved my Viper several times as support and got a good set of kills... but somehow the other lanes fed a Earthshaker 15 fucking kills... he was first to level 25... our lot couldnt fight thier way out of a paper bad, I ( as support Lina ) had to somehow get in and stun before the others could do anything... and with the enemy Weaver 3 hitting me it wasnt easy.

Then came the worst game... short rant : I went Lion , and the team sent me mid solo AFTER I blew my gold on a courier... ahhh, my Sniper and Drow both decided to sit in the fountain and admire the artwork the the whole game.

I guess thats going to happen a lot, at least until Valve puts in this asshole tax they mentioned a while back.

EDIT: Talk about hot and cold , from my worst game... then to the next game is my best , 10 kills, 3 deaths and 9 assists as Lina ... ohhh the Enemy Sniper was not very happy with me, those Lagunas hurt and its not nice to be stunned ( especially the one time I was invis and the AM on our team baited Sniper and Death Prophet , stunned the pair .. sent the death prophet on a flight with the Eules and Dragon Slaved the Sniper down low HP for AM to enjoy, I took the Death Prophet with a Laguna when she came down ).

Flare, go for Dagon and agahnims on Lina! Scepter + Laguna = rape, add a dagon charge to that = double rape :D Same applies for lion :)

I would but I tend to play the support role as no bugger else at my level will. I buy the damned donkey , I get the wards and I leave the CS to my carry and concentrate on denies and harrassing the enemy ( and pulling my moron carry out the fire when he gets caught out of position ).
Getting that much gold for Aghs and Dagon ( Dagon level 5 is I believe the most expensive item in the game ? ) is hard, especially when I am also getting Arc boots and Mek for my team.

I am close to going bugger it and take a carry, from what I can see I can out hit most of those who are on my team anyways ( I got more lasthits than my carry in my last Lina game, and that was as a support... I caught up in farm on other lanes, and not by spamming spells either... I simply had TP's and kept an eye on the map. )
Heheh, watch me get a case of beers and when I get nice and unreasonable , take a carry and totally rage at everyone :P

Hmmm, I think I should start taking some melee heroes soon though... like a Skeleton King or Sven as I am getting too specialised in ranged heroes. I prefer ranged as melee heroes tend to be all in types, you can poke and go oh shit bad fight and leg it... melee is jump in and ah screw it and die.

... I'll leave pet heroes for much later :p

I am greatly disturbed by the number of times I'm forced to play Bounty Hunter or Riki as a carry.

Wow. I just watched all 3 games that was casted by Greg and Will last night and I've learnt a couple things.

1. I really need to stop blinking in the middle of the enemy team as Queen of Pain before other people have gone in/before I've used my ult.

2. The really stupid things I do, are REALLY FUCKING STUPID. I now realize there is a 3rd stage in the thought process of doing something stupid.
Step 1, Bad idea forms and I go for it because it looks like an amazing idea. Step 2, I actually do said stupid idea. "Wow, ok, that was a little dumb, could of done better, but it could of gone worse". Step 3, Look back at it via a cast. What...the...fuck was I THINKING. How did I even THINK that was a good idea...
That first game, Seriously, I nearly stopped every time I watched myself do something because it just was just terrible play...

3. Greg really hated my QoP play most of that game...

So yeah, Need to stop being stupid and doing silly things...

For the price of the aghanim's + the bonus damage you actually get from it (like 150) its really not worth the scepter...

I still find mana management to be an issue with many heroes , the sheer number of times I had to let a near dead enemy walk because of no mana... like Pudge , one hook and your shit out of mana. Lion is pretty bad too , Spike and Hex often cost so much as to not have enough for a finger... I do auto attack as much as I can to avoid needing a hex before a finger but still even if I get the kill it leaves me with hardly any mana for further actions.

I tried to change up my heroes a bit, went Drow one match and... shes not bad, and I love the cheap harrass with frost arrow ( manually applied = no minion aggro ) but she lacks any escape at all until I got a shadow blade... didnt help I was in a lane with an Ursa who took full advantage of my harrassing the enemy AM to steal all the last hits, 15 min in and all I had was boots of speed and 2 wraith bands ( agility mask like things ) and hardly any CS... and the dratted Ursa would push up the lane then go jungling/roaming and leave me needing to leave my tower to get exp/gold but get ganked by the enemy AM with his babysitter Slardar. Won that game but only because of a Spirit Breaker on our team seriously kicking some arse .
Tried Pudge as I am usually pretty good with skill shots, but that was a disaster... rarely got a chance to clean hook an enemy and all too often I would toss out the hook to grab a escaping enemy and end up pulling back a Storm who got in my way, fed a Bounty Hunter but he was pretty good... better than one would imagine for the level I am in and his profile claims he had only 8 matches.

Servers seem to be having an issue today , got a match and it took nearly 2 min to find a server and the server had 70+ extra ms ping to my usual...took me from 82ms to 150ms, luckily one of the players failed to load... dont want 40 min of lagging responses as I already find DOTA2 to be slower to respond to my actions.

If you're having mana troubles, try Lich or Outworld Destroyer.

Lich can eat friendly creeps for mana, which also acts as a free deny, keeps the line towards your tower, and is great for laning. You can harass or assist with Frost Blast as much as you like if you spec Sacrifice first, and level that and Frost Blast before putting any points in Ice Armour.


Outworld Destroyer has something called Essence Aura which, when 4/4 and you've got about 1400 mana or so, means you can spam your primary nuke endlessly and never drop below 60% mana.

Scrap my previous statement, only idots play at the times when I'm awake. I'll never learn :roll:

Edit: I should clarify as it gives the idiots more credit than they deserve. I can't actually get into a game as people join the lobby to swear at eachother before leaving. Learning curve is bad enough without having to try and find non-assholes at 7 in the morning.

Yay Double Edit: Jumped into a bot game to see if I had learned anything. I have. I've learned that playing with bots is useless :x
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.
