this text will be a lot of mistakes, so to use the Google translator.
after a long search for players in the Russian-speaking forums unsubscribe here hoping to find someone who has the desire and the ability to play.
about me personally - I'm 22 years old , playing in 5/4 position for 4 years. looking for a team which is ready to accept me, or players preferably from 6500+ mmr but with a strong desire to play in the team. a single rating of 6300 but I don't really like to play the game in public ( the gap of points between players 1000 MMR).

Hi guys,

I've got an announcement to make : I'm quitting Dota.

I've decided to stop playing this game for good. The reason for that is very simple : it's way too time-consuming, and I want my free time back because I need it for my real life.

That's really all there is to it.

So no, you won't see me rant about the MMR system (it's mostly fine).
Or buying into the "dotafire going into a bad direction" trend (complaining is useless if you don't do something about it).
Or rant about the bad community in dota.
There's really none of that here. I just came back from holidays, and I decided that I want my free time back, that's it.

Because MOBAs are actually among of the worst in terms of time sucking / addicting video games out there. Maybe even worse than MMOs. Because just like a MMO where you have to spend thousands of hours leveling up a character to get anywhere in the game, in MOBAs you need to spend thousands of hours leveling up an account to get anywhere in the game. And the g…

Bit of a longer one now, I'm doing a writing course at uni so I figured I'd best start... well, writing, again. Brave new world, new characters, darker but less edgy. Have fun fam :)

Insurrection


A legend of a world far away

Z'hara tapped her foot impatiently as she waited, arms crossed, by the door. She checked the timepiece stored in her pocket. Not that she'd been waiting long - no, the dark elf was just used to things being done now.

"Quite finished in there, Ren?" she called. A snarl was her only response. Shortly thereafter, her companion emerged, shaking his head at her.

"I know you consider biology an inconvenience, but it's still a necessity."

Z'hara shrugged. "There's a time and a place to take a bathroom break."

"We're not running on that tight a schedule."

"No, but there are other things I'd rather be doing than working."

Ren snorted, flicked a lock of silver hair from his eyes. "What, like that pretty high elven diplomat? You're so very mono-dimensional, Z'hara!"

Hello dotaforians,
I haven't been that active recently (not that someone would have missed me) because I am currently in Portugal and experiencing the friendly, open-minded portuguese people - well...most of them are.
But even if I wasn't busy visiting Portugal I would probably visit the dotafire forum less than I did in the past if at all.
Why?
Because the forum has changed. Don't get me wrong, change can be a good thing:
New faces, new ideas, etc. But it's just not the same anymore.
Dotafire used to be about people discussing in a friendly way, sharing ideas, theorycrafting, sharing their amazing ideas of heroes and lore (looking at you Terathiel).
When I joined dotafire everybody seemed to be acting completly natural, saying what they thought without anyone's feelings being hurt.
But recently there were a lot of discussions going badly, people pointing fingers at people, people were starting arguments where in the past there have been discussions.
We seemed to be no longer able to c…

Greetings From Exile! While I may not be playing Dota at the moment, that doesn't mean I've been away from the game or this site! Since the current trend is everyone making their own version of 6.89, I figured I may as well join in! Hope you enjoy! And I'll probably add more stuff that I recall.

General:
-Fixes a glitch where a hero called " Slark" appears in the hero selection pool.
This glitch is absolutely game breaking, I think this hero might still be in development since his abilities clearly aren't properly balanced yet.

- Elder Titan Is added to the game.
I really liked this hero in Dota 1 and I've been waiting for a long time for Ice Frog to add him in Dota 2.

- Silver Edge debuff (the break and damage reduction) are now dispellable by becoming spell immune.
PA, put down the Battle Fury and pick up the Black King Bar

NEW ITEM:
THE WABBAJACK!
Builds From: Level 5 Dagon plus 1500 gold Recipe
What does it do? A more appropriate quest would be what DOESN'T it do? Each time …

Janitsu's July


Hello, and welcome to my 5th(?) blog post on Dotafire! Since the last blog post, not much has changed; I am still the very overlord and dominator of Dotafire, I still enjoy watching you suffer get very sad from your suffering and I am still Finnsve!

But to be fair, this month is one the best ones in my life. I have been asked to teach at the music academy in Stockholm for a week due to my acknowledged expertise with violin and its different aspects! I am currently in Stockholm to meet relatives and eager to begin giving lectures :). It's a full-paid trip (food/accommodation included) but I receive very little actual pay for this thing; however, it doesn't bother me as this is going to be a duly great adventure in my life!

Other things that have been happening in my life:

I have begun to play Path of Exile and Hero Siege actively on Steam and Guild Wars 2 outside of steam. If anyone wants to play any games with me, just hit me up!

My birthday is this month and I …

Safecyn's 6.89

- Nerfs to heroes that I don't like playing against
- Justification as to why these heroes are OP and can not just be drafted around with heroes I don't like playing.

- Buffs to heroes that I like playing
- Justification as to why these heroes are weak because I can't win every single game with them.

- Gameplay adjustments that cater to my specific playstyle

- New item that would make some of my favorite heroes really, really, really strong.

Yeah, this is the rodent's 6.89 I suppose. I tried something new and balanced around balance as opposed to rule of cool and taking a **** on Windrunner. Though I still did the latter because **** it.

Whatever let's get into it. Nobody reads my intros anyway so nobody will read this sentence and if they do read this sentence they'll realise it's excessively long and doesn't really serve a purpose except to confuse the people that do read this intro into no longer reading the intro which makes this sentence even more pointless.

General



-Roshan now gives 250 (up from 200) gold to the team that defeats him. Snatching the Aegis now grants 200 gold to the team that does so. Roshan kills before the 1-minute mark award a bonus 100 gold.

I still want to see crazy risk-taking Rosh shenanigans.


-Heroes are now credited with assists if they helped with non-damaging abilities such as Overgrowth and Global Silence. Shackleshot is excepted from this rule.

-Heroes are now granted double thei…

Do you think I'm worse than you?

Some of these heroes I'm not sure are balanced at all, so I put a trigger warning next to them.

Abaddon

- Mist Coil cast point from 0.35 to 0.3
- Aphotic Shield cast point from 0.452 to 0.3
- Aphotic Shield now deals damage equal to actual absorbed damage upon bursting


Alchemist
- Acid Spray radius from 625 to 375
- Acid Spray duration from 16 to 8
- Acid Spray damage per second from 15/20/25/30 to 30/40/50/60
- Acid Spray armor reduction from 4/5/6/7 to 3/4/5/6
- Unstable Concoction cooldown from 16 to 10
- Unstable Concoction maximum damage from 150/220/290/360 to 100/170/240/310
- Unstable Concoction throw range from 775 to 800
- Greevil's Greed no longer provides extra gold bonus per stack
- Greevil's Greed base gold bonus from 6/8/10/12 to 7/8/9/10
- Greevil's Greed now can be cast on an enemy creep, ward or mine to provide 120 gold bounty and 50 or 1.2x/1.3x/1.4x/1.5x experience, whichever higher. Has a cooldown of 125 seconds. (Grants 58 e

Let's make a 6.89. The general idea is to make some cool heroes playable again. And to give a *fair* nerf to the meta in very high scrub tier pubs.

- Sven

* Storm Hammer cooldown rescaled from 13 to 22/19/16/13 seconds
* Storm Hammer damage rescaled from 100/175/250/325 to 25/125/225/325
* Warcry coooldown rescaled from 32/26/20/14 to 17 at all levels

**** the 1/4/4 value abuse build. Seriously. That build is the reason why he gives a 20 armor bonus to his entire team at the 10 minute mark, which is broken as hell.


- Kunkka

* X Marks the Spot cooldown rescaled from 26/20/14/8 to 25/20/15/10
* Ghost Ship rum duration reduced from 10 to 7 seconds

Yes, that's a Kunkka nerf. Because the point is to balance heroes around their actual strength, not their pick rates...Right?


- Dragon Knight

* Breathe Fire mana cost reduced from 100/110/120/130 to 105 at all levels
