    Try a new style of play,  try a character with a certain item and the like,  but then people say NO that is not how your meant to play. Or NO you need to buy X then do Y. It stops being fun if your being told you have to do everything in a certain way. This is why I don't play much anymore as we as a team started to get to that point where it became serious.

    And yes that charge was EPIC :)
    Sharz, I am more than happy to play drunk DOTA again. It's much more fun.

    My other favourite moment from last night was Tom as NP:

    'Ah I'm dead, sorry guys'
    '...you're not dead Tom'
    'What?'
    GYRO OWNS MRTOMFTW
    'WTF?!'

    Somehow Tom ran away, then teleported to Fountain but left before fully healing, then clicked back at the fight, and then Gyro's super slow homing missile hit home and one-shot him :D

    I had teleported within our base, JUST outside of the fountain. He must have launched that as it was channelling.

    I totally called it.

    Ahhhh.

    Still, nothing beats my numerous failings on DOTA. Could make a documentary all about my cockups ;(

    Second game was grand, gutted we lost. It was down to the wire :( Seeing as I'd never played QoP in proper games, and BB had never used F Void, was quite good.

    This issue has gotten me killed twice tonight and half a dozen times before that I can recall, it's been in the game for an age and is still not fixed.

    I posted on reddit about it if you'd like to vote up my post and reply with your own experiences :)

    Had a superb game last night. Victory, 60-58, 52 minutes. I was shit as Lion (always am, don't know why I picked him), and we were losing most of the game. But one move won it - and their stragglers were picked off, leaving them exposed.

    It's always the way - do NOT GO BY YOURSELF GOD DAMN IT.

    I had the worst captains mode ever:

    Bloodseeker
    Zeus
    Huskar
    Nightstalker
    Spirit Breaker

    Luckily the other team was terrible and we won, but it was just a terrible line up.

    Also why if someone abandons do you lose points if you lose but you dont get any if you win?

    Tempted to give up the game. I think I'm at the point where playing solo/half a team is just suicide, over and over again, or going on and playing nothing else.

    I wish there was a 'casual' mode or something, where Phantom Lancers were banned... ^^

    True that. But I'd only play captain's in a team - not letting some random chump pick. Why is it that the strangers on my side like nothing more than dying, whilst the random players on the other side are all pros having a lazy day?

    I think if we want to take this seriously we need to look at pro tactics, for example Huskar is dealt with easily in pro matches. I guess the same for phantom lancer.

    Personally I don't take it seriously so can't be arsed to watch enough games. And I agree captains mode only if we're a full (noob)team, no randoms.

    If you guys really want to get better at the game but can't find the time or people to 5 man captains mode. Just play AR in a party or solo. your knowledge and skill of the game will get ALOT better than playing the other modes, especially AP.

    you will notice a level of skill difference when playing AR to AP too. I can't enjoy AP unless with friends etc as playing solo is far too easy.

    and if you're having problems with phantom lancer which is an OP hero in casual games, you're best off playing AR. He doesn't get randomed that much tbh but in AP and noob games he always gets picked. You hardly see him in pro games though.

    I agree Xuiton on that one actually, its a really good way to learn the chars you can play and levels the playing field (somewhat) for lower level games. You can still get steam rolled by a much superior team pick but its less common.

    Also the best advice is to watch some videos, or give me a shout and ill play a few with you. Im at the stage now where Im trying to learn new heroes and expand what I can play well.

    Xuiton you dont know us so i will let you off :) but we never play AP. Our prefer is single draft and we often pick the class we least understand but we can still get some team balance.

    The problem with AR is you can end up with pure melee carry for example, you cant learn anything if you cant test team dynamics.

    I think SD offers a happy balance. We just need to play as a 5, with Damo or something ^^ It's such a frustrating game, but so good when you're doing well ;(

    Fair enough about not playing AP.

    there is still a level of difference in terms of player quality in AR and SD. I mean if you're soloing and find you get idiots on your team who feed .

    Random Ability Draft:

    Very fun but you would need to be with relatively smart people, there is a good reason why strength heroes shouldnt have loads of spells.

    I think the most potential in it is to combine strength heroes with passives and a good ultimate. Wraith night + chemical rage and his life steal passive was brutal.

    I think it is a good joke mode, but not sure of its long term value. Apart from the Pro game at TI4.
