post #1591 of 17105
http://www.dota2.com/survey/experience/

Not sure if its still valid but my friend got his account through the survey recently. I signed up like last year. Just didn't have time to play till now.

If not, make an account on playdota.com and I think they're still giving away keys.

I never did get my extra friend invites for Dota 2.

OMG I just lol literally!! Love that pic!!!

So I had a few minutes last night after work before I needed to leave for my dodgeball league and decided to try out lycan. Wow I have to say he is super OP, I was just going against bots so the other team wasn't that smart but I left base without buying anything (not paying attention) and was just trying to read his skills for the first 3-4 minutes of the match (so I should of been way behind). Somehow I ended up 4 levels up on all the bots (after 15 min) and what taking out the entire other team without blinking an eye....that is scary if I can do that good on my first time without play even close to optimal....I want to try sillabear this weekend and see how OP he is.

Yep lycan is practically a gg biggrin.gif.

btw is anyone on dota 2 right now? My find match button doesn't work, so it looks like I need to group up....

[EDIT: After clicking "Find Match" a billion times it finally started searching]

Well bots are really, really bad so take that game with a grain of salt. With that said I also feel that he is probably the strongest hero in the game with Shapeshift (ultimate) being imba. 40 second cooldown with 18 second duration means he only has to wait 22 seconds inbetween uses. And when he does use Shapeshift he moves at 522 ms (max move speed), cannot be slowed, gains hit points, gains 2 armor, gets a smaller collision size, and gains a critical strike. He also attacks faster and his wolves also gain the ms bonus. All for 100 mana.

Yeah. Its too much. Lengthen the cooldown, shorten the duration, and increase the mana cost IMO.

Ugh wish somebody who knows all the neutral creep blocking wards would show me.

Thought wards in certain places blocked neutral spawn which could counter lycan (though warding in pub games is like a crap shoot).

They do. Generally the only ones that people block are the creeps that are pulled into the lanes. Click the link below to learn how to do it properly. Its pretty in depth and even experienced player can learn some things from this guide. Yes the guide was written for Dota 1 but because the map is exactly the same in Dota 2 the same techniques apply.

So what is the longest game you guys have played? I have played 2 games that both lasted 86 minutes, and happened the exact same way.

Was Dire both times, lost mid rax, top rax, and both tier 4 towers, and turtled it up to make a crazy comeback smile.gif
