Can't ask for too much as a new comer (I understand you're a very experienced LoL player, still), I've had friends feel the same way and eventually didnt get through the training threshold and therefore never really got into the game.

Threshold = the amount of games one needs to get so familiar with the game that skipping the game for one whole year will have minimal effect to the skill level

You would go Linkens over bkb if your trying to avoid getting lock down by fiends grip, doom etc. http://dota2.gamepedia.com/Linken's_Sphere

please allow me to add that linkens is mostly gotten on heros that have a very reliable escape mechanism such as invis(BH) and blink(QoP). Sometimes hero like DP just cuz she can make use of everything of the item.

Say if you are sniper and you can locked down by a spell that can go through BKB, even if you can dodge it with linkens, you aren't going anywhere and you might still die at the end so linkens isnt really a big deal.

But if you are say QoP, and you can dodge whatever stun that goes through BKB, that is a chance to blink out for you and is therefore a huge deal.

And good players, or een decent ones can trigger linkens with less important spells and then do the main spell

Linkens also gives you regen which BKB doesn't.

Just on magic immunity I think BKB is better but sometimes Linkens could be a better choice.

Harris, you forgot Weaver!

I just like the idea of a 5 Linken team. You all bubble one guy and have some fun.

So is there a meta in this game? I have no idea how the lane setups are supose to go, or team compositions.
post #8900 of 17124
There really isn't a "meta" almost every hero can go any lane and even woods. Depends on what type of role you're going with. It isn't like LoL where Oh I'mma pick this champ so top is mine all the time and make it so predictable and boring.
