What would that image even look like?

A double Zeus ulti? Skeleton King reviving 5 times? Furion farming the whole map at once? 12 Phantom Lancers on the battlefield? 4 Warlock golems?

It looks like a level 25 sniper, methinks. Squishy squishy is squishy. You counter sniper by keeping it dead, iirc.

So did I :P

Though I don't have much knowledge of league, honestly. I do sorta' remember sniper as being a fairly sub-par hero in higher level stuff, but that may have been a while back.

Sniper and ogre mage was about the only dota heroes I was worth a flip with, for the limited amount of time I was semi competent with it, but sniper was... well, it doesn't seem all that capable against people-worth-a-flip, at least back in WC3 dota.

Yea, Sniper was never competitive. A squishy carry without a farming spell or an escape spell is in trouble. Sniper has neither, unless you count his slow as a escape spell. That slow is a pretty bad escape spell... what is it, like 22% at max level? Better then nothing I guess.

Luckily there are pub games where you can sit in your lane for half an hour and never get ganked.

Yeah... it had been a while since I played DotA, and fired up the AI map... late last year? Something like that. Was surprised that sniper lost his farm spell (that laughed and ate entire waves, after a little bit) and it got replaced with a fairly mediocre AoE slow. Was like... did sniper really need a nerf? But I guess so and whatev'. Ogre mage A++, will own again. If I ever bother to get around to playing multiplayer DotA again (maybe after two actually does something :P), anyway.

OM doesn't get many kills, usually, but by the gods your team mates love you and life is hell for the other team. Love <3

OM is hilarious when the other team has a pure support caster. I.E Crystal Maiden. One lucky cast of Fireball and shes down! :D

OM is hilarious when the other team has anything with less than 1000 health and the RNG loves you

FTFY.

Well, here someone who has lost his gaming life to DOTA2. I started with league of legends, but the moment I got the invitation I changed sides because DOTA is to the league the same as Dwarf fortress to the sims (NO SURRENDER BUTTON, FUCK YEAH. PREPARE TO BE MINCED MEAT DURING THE NEXT TYHIRTY MINUTES, UNDERFED ENEMIES). My favourite heroes are Lycan (Nothing beats getting a kill after chasing the enemie to the raxes while the three towers are up and get out of there with more than half your health), Veno (I pick him when I lane with a friend. He picks riki and when we get to the lane I start harassing. After level 4 and when any of them is at half health we simply start to punch them in the face. They never escape.) and "If you farm it well you fuckin rape everyone"· guys like obsidian destroyer or Lone druid (I don't leave jungle with this guy until I have radiance, hyperstone and tarrasque). And of course THE MANLIEST HERO WITHOUT TESTICLES, ALL HAIL KING LEORIC!
I usually manage to have my win/loss ratio positive, but it never gets over 3. I hope it'll be a pleasure disscussing with you all about this game.

PD: Also, I've been randoming always since I discovered it gives you more money. ¿Tangos? ¿Salves? Ring-o'-health at minute one, gentlemen
PPD: Also, my steam nick is ranter. Send me a MP to know it's you if anyone adds me. I have micro, but Ican't speak English fast enough for this kind of games, but I can try...

Mr. Pure Skill, No-Luck-At-All is out now. Take him out for a spin to showcase your 100% l33t haxx0rs headshotz pro skillz. He now comes with custom slot machine ringing so everyone can hear how much skill you displayed!

The godawful UI is also out too. Hope they change it. The new UI is also really laggy for some reason.

*wonders who umi is talking about* *checks website*

Oh. Hai dere OM. Given that introduction, I can only imagine an unholy swath of poorly played OMs are about to hit dota2. Bloodlust is more dangerous than fireball :P

He / they actually says that, by the way.

"That was all skill! No luck at all!"

"That was great! I know, I practice a lot."

Am I the only one that likes new UI? Like the thing where you can see who uses courier, and movement speed. And it looks helluva smoother than old UI imho.
Hm OM, it will be fun to see how he will translate to current pro metagame.
