    something similar happened to me. there was this 13y.o. kid who happends to be in mu friend list and was bad mouthing this guy in the mid with medusa. i had drow so i wanted mid. so i asked him if he could handle mid and he said he could. but the kid kept bad mouthing and calling everyone a douche and everyone started flaming. so i told everyone to shut the fuck up and be friendly if they wanted to win. one of the players rage quit, but the others were good. medusa started killing like crazy, and i had leveled up as well, so we won!

    Just played a match and won despite having a feeding Slardar. Guy was pretty terrible, but was brand new so we cut him a lot of slack. We ended up using him as gank-bait then rolling over the other team.
    Ended with the typical name-calling by the other team, and apparently our heroes were all OP.

    We weren't OP, we just used this rare and magical ability called teamwork! :D

    umm being OP is one of the primary aspects of the game. you cant expect to overthrow the other team without overpowering them. teamwork works when the average strength is more.

    Usually in multiplayer games, a player yelling OP means that the hero or class is severely unbalanced.
    This is usually a phrase uttered by poorsports or baddies.

    In this game, no hero is truly OP unless the opposing team is very bad, or picked a very bad team composition. And even then it's usually a player skill deficit and not unbalanced heroes.

    I humbly disagree with your comments: the game is more or less balanced at the highest levels, but it may not be the case for lower levels of play. For example, there was a time Huskar was known to be one of the best noob killers out there, but he was absolutely useless competitively. Same goes for Slark: very powerful for lower levels of game, but as you go up his effectiveness decreases somewhat.

    you dint disagree with him. you just confirmed what he said.
    game cant be balanced on high lvls and unballanced on lower. game is either balanced or not balanced.
    skill of behind keyboard divices is unbalanced. as you said huskar and saladar are noob killers. when noobs arent noobs anymore huskar and sala's killing spree is gone. no balance here. just some heroes need more effort ot master then the others combined with fact that some ppl learn faster/have better reflex then other and you get "unbalance" at low levels

    Not many people can spend hours perfecting the game, and hence they will only stay at lower levels of the game. Hence the game will always be unbalanced for them.

    yes and this will be only their subjective point of view.
    game itslef is as balance as it could be. it inst game's fault that you or me or someone else dont have time to play it and to master one or more heroes.

    Just played a game after breakfast, and it was terrible. 3 Support not providing support, and stealing the creeps/mobs from our carries. Pinging for ganks, and then not participating in the fight. Also feeding at the weirdest times.
    I think they were trolls/griefers as all 3 of them were muted.
    Thankfully, it was a short game.

    just finished a game with spectre,
    that hero is pretty hard to use,
    but you can farm at the other side of the map, without having to come late to a teamfight.

    she hits pretty hard too

    I think it just shows your position in the list lol.

    Been playing vengeful spirit nowadays, having alot of fun. Just deny during laning stage (letting carry farm). For some reason I find her stun easy to use as well (its fast and follows the target type), can get tanky too (got a recent buff in str) and got nice damage later too (she got dmg buff and armor reduce nuke).

    Hi I am new here :D
    Been playing dota since 7 years ago but still doesn't seem to improve my skill at all :p
    If anyone wants to play together, especially in SEA or Aussie server, you can add my steam ID = mlazenzan or you can ask me to add your ID.

    Thanks :D

    >Another game against Riki+Bounty
    >Have trump player that picked Ursa
    >Player (Ursa) leaves mid game
    >We loose because no carries

    I am so sick of this. Players that leave mid game should be banned from playing. A week without playing or a month should teach them to stick around and make sure they have the time for a whole game. Geez.
