You'll all do pretty well there if youre good at MOBAs in general, but I'm not sure where this idea of less punishing = easy comes from. Remember, your opponents have it exactly the same too. It reminds of people saying adding more features to chess makes it a better/harder game.

So anyways, back to DOTA2 .. I'm sometimes saddened by all the changes I note. Force Staff? Smoke of Deceit? Why? Why would you do this!?

It's good because it makes the EARLY GAME matter more. Without the punishments for mistakes you can always say "meh i screwed up at beginning, as always... who cares I'ma just gonna do a 'long term' build and win this!"
With the extra punishments you consider the "not dying" more than "argh just 1 last auto-attack!"
And denies? Well, it give supports an actual purpose for the laning phase and also doesn't make it a game of "getting last hits with occasional harassing".

What's wrong about them?

I'm not a purist of by any means so I'm not going to debate anyone about the merits of one game vs. another, I'm just surprised how eager people are to readily make a statement of "superiority" vs. simply "different"

I haven't started playing yet, but when I do, might try Medusa seeing as I enjoyed her in Dota. She's pretty accurate to her looks in mythology.

I guess you are right. Talking Objectively about Items or the 2 games is quite useless, since people are always biased one way or another (e.g. which of them you played first, wether you actually did play both etc.)

What's wrong with them? They are tactical options that add more to the game. It's not like they're easy to use.

I think Willx is talking about Force staff being nerfed slighty a month or so ago? Not sure about SoD don't think anything happened to it.

I've always loved force staff. I think some people really found ways to work wonders with that thing. Personally, I could only use it on certain characters with success. It can definitely be fun on Techies, though, lol.

The more mobility you have on certain hero's can determine how well you do, like Rubick. Techies as well, force yourself into a group of 5 and detonate

Still have no interest to play, Drained myself of DOTA last year Went on it today to see the store and watch a live game. The store has some amazing items. Game is still a lot of fun to watch too. Hopefully soon I will want to play again

Oh and Tuskar is in the patch notes, fun fun. Also Silencer and Medusa are in CM.

Yet it's mega overpriced just like TF2 items. Granted, though you can randomly get items from matches and you get one item every level you get. I got a legendary courier from that .

I too am burnt out still from DotA 2. I played a lot way back in early fall but haven't touched it in several months. I want to go back but I'm not ready to commit to it again and I'm partially waiting for a good portion of new heroes to be implemented before I go back

I don't know if they are really over priced, some of the sets I could say are overpriced. I only buy single items

Recently got back into it after a few months of inactivity. Quite a bit of new heroes came in during that time. The newest one, The Elder Titan is epic. His ult is so bad@$$. IMO his sleep-damage ability needs to be fixed.

I gave in and bought a few keys for some chests and got some pretty "rare" stuff including a couple taunts. Can't wait for The Elder Titan gear to come out, that's only stuff I'd be willing to shell out some money for. Oh, if anyone has dota 2 stuff they wanna trade, I'd be willing to trade some TF2 hats/items...just throwing it out there

So many Dota 2 Invites, Still I think people who really want to play Dota can now, unless they live under a rock or only play released games.

When i got my invite they send me 5 invites week later another 10 (they still send them to me with 2 up to 5 invites sometimes).
Im not even playing it that much ,i was kinda forced to try it out by few friends.
And just as you said those who i know that want to play it already do, so i thought why not giving them away on a gaming forum to those who want it.
