To be fair a lot of that is due to people wanting to jungle, but not being able to play Ench/Chen/Enigma, pretty much the only support junglers. Because of that a jungler becomes absurdly greedy, even though it’s not meant to be, it’s more to free up a lane for solo xp and provide another farmer who can gank safelane than a chance for Doom to farm a midas and be useless half the game (You could play Doom as more of a 4 but almost nobody does, Blink Arcane Mek 4lyfe).

Good luck finding some people though!

Searching for 1v1 mid, what should I play?

Bored, might as well see if someone has a suggestion while I wait.

How many times do I need to ping >we need wards before the bots will buy me wards: a scientific experiment

Bots do not respond to chat wheel prompts. They will move positions based off of pings, but this is not recommended as in some cases they will simply stand where you direct them to go and cease all other action for a while.

DotA 2 Headcanons

Meepo never really fought experienced warriors before fighting for the Dire. He mainly beat up fellow ruffians and ne’er-do-wells. So when he says “How did you DO that?” it’s because he’s actually baffled: He’s never lost a fight, because he always had such a huge advantage from his clones. Being even remotely hurt in combat’s strange to him, he was always untouchable before.

First time playing Zeus

One game per day I say… I wonder how long this will go for?
I seriously need to learn a Zeus build :/
The game ended with a victory to my team but that was due to the 2 abandons from The Dire.
I started with a Ring of Basilius, Stick, Clarity.
I guess they didn’t last long…

Go mid with one tango, 3 iron branches. This is a bottle rush.

Quickly farm up bottle, then go for Arcane Boots (You can get a wand/magic stick after brown boots if needed), into Force Staff or Blink Dagger. From there, the build can split:

If you’re getting the opportunity to get items and use your ult to dominate fights, Agh’s Refresher will shred opponents.

However, I often find I need to resolve Zeus’ lack of disabling/survivability, so I go Eul’s into Linken’s/Scythe, depending on whether I need the hex or need to avoid a key spell.

Oh, and skill wise you go like this: q e w w w r w e e e q q q for the first 14 levels (15th is stats, 16 is the last one for ult). Reason being is that Chain Lightening’s mana cost goes up with levels, and the damage doesn’t scale too well. Static field is a boost in damage for ALL 3 of your spells at no mana cost.

I still can’t see why Vici refused to draft anything durable after their first game. They won not only because they had push, but because they were difficult to burst down in spite of their aggression. But then they had shit like Nature’s and Venomancer and Weaver, all of whom are really squishy and, while good at pushing and being aggressive, can’t lay siege when the enemy has things like Ember that’ll just do huge damage and wear you down if not outright kill you.

I mean, if they got banned out on that kind of stuff, I’d find it hard to believe, given almost all their heroes in game 1 suited that style, but not ALL of them were necessary (And Newbie likely isn’t just going to ban out the entire enemy team from their last game).

another completely random idea that sound plausible but is dangerous to play. mask of madness on juggernaut. the idea behind it is you would get the attack speed letting you hit between intervals more. not exactly the best idea but I think it ‘might’…

At that point you spent 4k plus on attackspeed items and not only no survivability, but vulnerability.

If you want lifesteal, Vlad’s at some point suits Jug as a midgame pusher. It also opens you up for Deso, another effective item on Jug.

As a midgame hero who doesn’t want an immediate BKB, MoM will leave Jug feeling vulnerable and might make it harder for him to play as aggressively as he’d like. Even if it’s good with his ult, it’ll just make him heavily reliant on it, preventing him from maximizing his dps without his ult up.

Go maelstrom, it makes getting attacks between slashes potentially proc it, adds attack speed, and allows Jug to push/flash farm easier. Not to mention it builds into Mjollnir.
