The new Blade Mail, discussion and usage on Crystal Maiden



Hello guys I'm presenting you may thaughts about Blade Mail. I will give a closer look on using the item on Crystal Maiden. To start off, I will explain how the item works and what changed during this patch, which made it in my eyes a legit pick up for Crystal Maiden and many more heroes.

Blade mail



So what the item does is rather simple. It returns damage. It has always been an item that returned damage and it still is. Traditionally this item was bought by tanky heroes and especially tanky heroes who force to fight against them. Those heroes were Legion Commander, Axe and Clockwerk. Other heroes where a Blade Mail was sometimes spotted on were Centaur Warrunner , Huskar, Bristleback and Undying. Sometimes other heroes would purchase the item as well but tend to lose or get reported by teammates. I think we can say that blademail was a rare item which was countered by bkb.

However a little buff changed a lot f…

I am trying to get back into magic and need inspiration and this community is the only nice one i am much apart of and I've tried reddit but everyone on there is an ***hat and I am bored and need someone or anyone to talk to about magic and I figured hey y not the dota community so let's talk.
I recently made a copy of this deck http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/back-once-again-with-the-mill-behavior/ while working towards getting this http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/slave-to-the-grind-4/ but I don't have it yet for budget reasons
And this one http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/mr-darwin-would-be-proud/ I've had for a while and it is pretty damn OP

Anyone else want to talk anything about magic

Hello fellow dotaforeans! How are you all? You must be thinking why is ultra making a blog post? Or you might have guessed why after reading the title. At any rate, I need your help people of dotafire.
I have to submit a small assignment for a course of mine. For that, I need some data. Since dotafire has so many diverse people I thought I'd post it here too. At any rate, it's just a small questionare. Please take some time out of your busy schedule to fill this up!
Thanks!

Why hello there! I bet you're all wondering what I've been up to! Even if you're not interested, too bad! Because I'm going to tell you anyways! Since I've apparently managed to get a month ahead in classes, I decided to play some dota this past week... with a TWIST!

Sure, some of you might be curious about the #roadto2k and rightly so, but after seeing what happened to our good friend Xyrus, I've decided to put ranked play on hold for the time being, in order to avoid the burnout or worse, lose the ability to have fun playing this game. (But if you MUST know where I'm at, you'll be pleased to know that I'm sitting pretty at 1.5K, the halfway point so to speak)

It's actually convenient that I bring up the whole 2k Quest and the brutal MMR burnout because it does segue more or less into the aforementioned twist I've implemented this past week. What could this twist possibly be? I've done nothing press the Random Button for each match I played this week!

Before I get too into depth, l…

War. War never changes.

Sure, the faces may be different from time to time, as Icefrog's mighty hand buries some into the trash tier while invoking others to positions of prominence. Hell, even the terrain itself may be swept clear and remade as seasons come and go. But at the end of the day, it's always a bunch of scared kids charging out into a senseless bloodbath, defending a hunk of magical rock that never did a damn thing for 'em.

It's times like this it's good to have a friend by your side: someone to watch your back. Because the world isn't nice to small, fragile men that waddle from place to place. Who was stupid enough to follow me into battle, you might ask? None other than the master of all cuttlefish himself. Damn fine soldier.



Cuttleboss:

We had Sniper planned beforehand, Cyn hoped for a miracle. I was prepared to give him the next best thing, Abaddon, a hero that can pair very well with Sniper, since Sniper really just needs a tank who can lead charges wi

Dear Dotafire community

I am highly surprised by the number of bot posts, **** posts and troll posts that are doing the rounds of this fine community.

It is rampant. And no one other than a mod can do anything about it. However, even if they do, it is in vain because of two perspectives:
1. The troll/ ****poster/ bot keeps doing it again and again
2. We do not derive any entertainment value from these trolls anymore. Even lord of troll kyfoid has lost his sheen. His armor has holes for *****s.
3.Positive debating gives us more to think, post and enjoy. Evidenced by hamstertamer's 6.87 Wishlist thread

I have devised a solution to this trolling

YOU NEED A COUNTER TROLLER

1. One who trolls the trolls. So the trolls get counter-trolled. And I can go techies style" Counter trolls win"
2. You derive entertainment value from the ensuing debate where i put meaningful points forth in the troll thread thereby aligning the thread to be a serious one or I beat the troll with their own logic.…

Kyfrog this is for you. Dota needs fixing and only you can do it.

General

- Heroes in their fountain can no longer have their position changed by any spell or item controlled by enemies.
- Fountain now has true strike and can attack ethereal units as if they were not ethereal.
Death to fountain farming.

- Courier respawn time reduced from 3 to 2 minutes

- Ultimate Orb moved from secret shop to base
Why was ultimate orb removed from side shop again? Right now it's such a pain in the *** to buy skadi, linkens or whatever item based on it. Why?

- Sentry Wards no longer reveal enemy wards if placed normally. They still reveal invisible units.
- Placing Sentry Wards while holding the ALT key now places Ward Detectors, which are visually different from normal sentries. Ward detectors reveal enemy Observer Wards, Sentry Wards and other ward detectors. However, they do not reveal invisible units.
The idea of this change is to remove any interaction between dewarding and countering

So I'm a numbers guy, yeah? Lemme drop a little stats on you.

No one talks about stats like that. You are NOT the cool, young fresh Nahaz.

Shush. Anyways, in my many years of playing Dota 2 I have engaged in 1227 matches. A lot of Dota, for sure!

Jeeez. How many hours do you have logged to Steam on this thing?

Only... 3000 plus... shush, I have a life I swear. Anyways, that's not the statistic that matters, here. What matters is this: as of this writing, I have never played more than 43 games on a single hero.

... what? How the heck is that possible? You don't have a main hero? Something you spam to try and win games?

The only hero I spam is the random button.

You are the worst kind of filthy casual game-ruiner in existence, you know that?

Fair enough. It does have its advantages though: when Dotabuff released their arbitrary achievements, I was ASTOUNDINGLY close to the Every Hero Challenge. I've won games on practically every hero there is: I'm versatile like that.
