Rare drops are bullshit. Best to wait for those drops to hit the market and hope they don't go for more than $10. Thankfully they got rid of those awful infusers for this treasure though.

Almost all recent sets have been garbage.

It's been at least a year since anything good has come out.

We've reached peak hat.

It's gambling.

Treasures are slot machines with some level of guaranteed payout.

They literally have a roulette wheel for battle passes.

There isn't even a currency system like Overwatch so you can pick what you want to buy on the "rare" spectrum of items. Either you continue throwing money at it or give up and buy it off of marketplace at a premium.

The extremely rare sets go for $60-120 bucks per chest per major.

If percentages didn't shift, how would 5k be the new 4k? MMR is a zero sum game with some inflationary but also deflationary processes.

I've been seeing a lot more people on a huge downward spiral from 4k and a lot of new accounts.

Hopefully that new round of VACations related to the Sandboxie program will do some good

you can spread out the top ~5% pretty significantly without changing the bottom significantly.

Exactly. League has worked the same way. Silver 4 has been the 50th percentile for years but gold 5 went from being the top 15th percentile to the top 25th.

Guys, can you please tell me how I could've countered a very fed Anti-Mage in https://www.dotabuff.com/matches/3005665582this game as Necrophos please?

The obvious answer is that we should've finished faster and gone all out to take their last barracks, but it was really tough against their lineup and Techies had bombs all over that lane and barracks.

The real problem however was Anti-Mage, we just couldn't deal with him at all, and once both him and Juggernaut used their Mantas it got so chaotic that I didn't feel entirely confident using my ulti, none of us knew who to focus, and they wrecked our base so quickly :(

Your team need lock-down and wave clear late game. Necro needed shivas and/or sheepstick, LS needed basher at bare minimum.

Thanks! That's a great shout, I was reluctant to get a sheep stick because I would've been in the same position of not knowing who to target as I had with my ulti, but Shivas could have been amazing! I'll know for next time, thank you :)

Troll, Jakiro, Mag, and I all force favorable fights and take advantage of Track Gold to stay in it until we can pick of AM and force enough buy backs to win. Game was straight fury.

Game 2. Our Pudge decides to roam and dive into them at level 3 or 4, then rage, feed twice, and feed our courier twice making it really hard for us to do anything for the first 10 minutes. Then he decides to stop complaining and we immediately start stomping them.

Two games that without insane levels of toxicity probably would have been easy 25 minute wins, but nope. Everyone's gotta whine and complain. Back to Gem TD for me.

What ever became of the big push for community developed bots? Are those available? I feel like I never heard anything about them after the announcement. If there are bots that don't suck or make insanely questionable decisions then just maybe.
