DOTA2 |OT16| The Last Thread

Sumail so young and still maturing. I’m glad he has held back because it sounds like he probably made a mistake a lot of people make when they are young.
 
techies does need a buff though

BUFF PHOENIX
Buff slark and legion. Also necronomicon
give phoenix the highest base regen in the game

more damage to spirits (% based?)
These speak for me.
 
Who are the most difficult heroes for Icefrog to balance (or the ones that he would probably view as the most challenging)? Alchemist and Invoker are probably in the top 5.
 
he's using the same argument mobile legends did right?
i think valve will probably send him cease and desist and he'll comply, doubt he has the money and balls to fight in the court
 
didn't realize huskar's base damage was so bad. had a completely free lane against a lina but I still ended up at 44@10 which opendota assigned a 77% to it. also failed in my armlet toggling mega hard dying to rosh early and plenty more times so I got a bit of practice to do. need to have huskar down as pocket pick which should take like 3 games to really understand the hero

Here are the Dev's thoughts
Thank you for dropping by and your thoughts.
I myself am a huge fan of Dota 2 and a regular player, so good to see someone else spotted it out.
However, rather than "taking" them, I would use the word "inspired from". Our characters are simply inspired from D2 out of our love for those heroes/characters, we donot take any elements or concept from the game itself.
As Voltaire put it, ”Originality is nothing but judicious imitation. The most original writers borrowed one from another."
How about copyright?
I am not a legal expert at it but pretty sure the heroes themselves are not copyrighted as they are derived from WC3/Dota 1. The copyright itself exists for Dota 2 logo, name/title and maybe other things.
We have not taken any concepts from Dota 2 or using its name or even hero names, we have only inspired our characters from the look of D2 characters (or you can even say WC3 charas) because we love how they look and felt good for the setting.

Again, if we are breaking any copyrights, Valve would have noticed it as the Game, store page and the build goes through a manual review process and passed it.
So this guy does not understand copyright law at all. Even if the characters concepts are public domain (Which is one of the things that the maker of Mobile Legends was trying to argue in their court case with Valve/Blizard), the specific artistic renditions in Dota 2 are owned by Valve, and this guy does not have the rights them.

Guys, a bartender got me wasted with 2 drinks, what do? I don't know if he just made then stronger than expected, or the lack of other stuff in my system is making it comparably stronger. I also had a shot of gin 4 1/2 hours ago, and a vodka + red bull at this dance club.

Got to eat before you drink.

Just like you got to drink before you play another game on this patch.

Nah I'm kidding, I'm just playing anything but all pick now lul

I ate a bit, but it was pretty light. Feeling slightly hung over, but nothing too bad, I think once I get a bit of water in me I'll be good.
