Hi guys! Gil Bot here! :) For those who read my Anti-Mage guide, thanks again because it is the reason that I will write more guides so be ready for that. For those who haven't checked my guide it is archived at the moment because it is kinda outdated so I will update it to be applicable for the 7.01 patch but I'll tell you guys if it is done already as soon as possible so be sure to check it out!

Thanks and have a good day!!! :)

Hello guys! I'm a new member here. And this is my first blog post.
I want to talk about a controversial item in dota 2, the Aghanim's Scepter. Why does it become controversial? Because so many heroes in dota 2 have aghanim upgrade. It can upgrade spells, grant new spells, reduce spell cooldown, etc. Aghanim's scepter itself costs 4200 gold and grants a few attribute, health and mana bonus. At its price, I think that bonus is not worth. But the ability upgrade is the thing that makes aghanim is a core item is some heroes. So, is Aghanim's Scepter a good item? Well, the answer depends on the hero you use.

Here's the criteria that I use to make this list
  • Does the hero really need aghs? (Weight: Heavy)
  • Is there better item for the hero than the aghs by the cost and the effect? (Weight: Heavy)
  • Can the hero farm aghs? (Weight: Medium)
  • How good could it potentially be? (Weight: Medium)
  • In what stage of the game is the aghs usually purchased? (Weight: Low)

Remember that it's my own criter

Hello! It has been some time I know, but I've just now had the time to goof around with 7.00 and figured I'd write a blog about my thoughts (Since everyone is entitled to my opinion).

New UI
In keeping with the OSFrog philosophy of "If it ain't broke, thoroughly **** it up." The complete butchering of the UI was disorienting for me and absolutely unnecessary. The previous UI had all the info you needed with requring you to hold down keys or hover your mouse over a microscopic icon.

Ultimately, the changes mean I will have to learn how to play this game again.

Hero Remodels:
I love the new models for Viper and Slardar, but I didn't think that Enigma really needed a new model, especially when Jakiro is in desperate need of a visual overhaul.

I haven't had time to test out all of the talents (Though I've gone through Shadow Fiend's and while his level 10 talents are a tad redundant for those who favor the casual Yasha, the rest are fairly solid) but I find it interesti…

A Newcomer's Sights

Huh, how do you exactly use this "Blogs" anyway? Oh well. Salutations! Welcome to my blog. Have some crumb cakes.

It's not everytime I join a community and the people here are this nice. I joined several groups before, but the majority of them acted like the community consisted of only their friend group. If not, it's complete drama. Here, the people are nice, no drama, a very easy going and non toxic aura! It really feels like a happy family here.

Adding on, there's a lot of stuff to do here. As a coding lunatic, I can do my thing and code guides here. I find it really fun. Not only it teaches others, but it also teaches me new things when I research the data. And now that I've discovered that blogs exist here too, I'll be more than happy to start writing stories about the adventures of the Dota 2 characters.

The only thing that has made me sad, is the fact that we have so many registered members (about 2000 I believe), but at most, only 9 members are o…

I don┬Ęt know whether you remember me or not, but I feel I haveto apologoise for my inactivity in "hero discussion" I signed up for. Unfortunatelly, I had "serious health issue" - I got run over by a car - and spent almost half a year in hospital with my arms and legs not working properly.

Anyway, I am out of hospital now and my reconvalescence will take at least 8 more months so I'm going to punish this game as I'm bored as **** and hating my wheelchair.

Hope you are doing better than me.

Is Dota becoming to commercial?

Hello everyone

I haven't shown myself anymore for a long time mostly because I stopped playing Dota. However I think that the following topic is a pretty interesting one and one of the few not trending about the in game mechanics but actually about exterior game mechanics. I will be discussing how Dota, and a lot of Valve their games doing the same thing, are becomming pure commercial.

Some of us are already playing for a while now. I started some years ago, so I'm not the oldest player in any means but yet I can call myself decently experienced with the game evolution. Also I do have a decent knowledge of Dota since I did watch a lot of the ti1, ti2 and of course the ti3 games. ti4 was the first international I watched and followed intensively, while not having a compendium. Since I did watch the ti 4 that intensive I decided to buy a compendium for the ti5 but that compendium was almost garbage in comparison with the ti4 one. Especially since you co…
