There is no point in using all his skills, ever. Not even accounting for the fact that a team fight doesn't last more than 8-10 seconds.

Yes there is a point. They do damage, CC, buff, or a combination of those.

Team fights often go on longer than 8-10 seconds, especially if neither team gets a strong initiation or an initiation gets cancelled. Unless you don't count chasing down survivors as part of the teamfight.

Spells that should be cast nearly every late game teamfight (including chasing down survivors or getting away): meteor, deafening blast, tornado, EMP, cold snap, sun strike, alacrity, spirits, ice wall.
Spells that are more situational but are probably still cast quite a bit: ghost walk.

Tiny is a rock. He's harder than Invoker.

LOL oh. I thought you put it in caps and bold to make it seem that Tiny is a lot more difficult to play. My bad.

My GTX580 maxes it out at pretty damn high framerates, close to 200 when nothing is happening, and pretty damn fast even with heavy teamfights, never noticed any slowdown but I haven't recorded properly.

Just saying, there is little need to get Dota2 to run at 120FPS constant, it's not the kind of game where that benefits you.

Ya I'm not looking for an advantage with the extra frame rates, I saw my friend playing Dota on a 120hz monitor and it looks delicious.

Oh I see, thanks for pointing it out smile.gif

You've got me thinking myself now... I have an IPS monitor, is 120Hz really that much of a difference?

I don't think its that much of a difference unless you're playing a FPS game.
