What the hell is tempo?
post #9112 of 17124
I'm confused - doesn't windrunner have powershot? Why are people saying she has no push power. That + her ult are not bad for pushing. And she has a decent escape ability, and shackle works if you're dodging in trees as well. At worst it's mid-tier...which in dota, is fine for the beginning.

If I went that route I might go Force Staff/Guinsoo into DPS like daedalus or even an early linkens (which I've seen a few times). In pubs it's fine. People might get annoyed if you don't get mek/orchid but if you're going a guinsoo no one will complain about that.

Momentum, sorry. Musical upbringing makes me say tempo.

Dota is a game of momentum. If you can control it, you can win the game. WR peaks early so she can have a huge effect on early momentum.

If you're pushed back almost to your base, she can't push back fast enough. In cases like that I rather have a sustainable split pusher.

She has so many other strengths to play to and I've tried making a split push WR with double Mael. I think Sun remembers when I tried and it was awful. tongue.gif

Edit: OMG I missed the 6.79 buff on Mael. Time to try double Mael again!

Ultimate orb is a really nice item on Windranger, but saving up for it is risky as hell. stocking 2100 gold is really really hard to do, when I could be splitting it into pieces of 500 for different items like the parts for orchid.

Kay I'm going to rant. take it with a grain of salt, and take no offense, but it really irks me


I

HATE

when people shorten things out of "efficient" (cough LAZY) behavior.
ESPECIALLY NAMES

It's Windranger/Windrunner
WR seems like such a lazy dispresect to someones title/name.

I also freaking LOTHE people shortening names and breaking phonetics, like in League of legends, people call Shyvana "Shyv" and it drives me nuts. it's SHY vahn Ah "Shai Vahn Ah" not "Shiv" People who say shyv i wanna smack.


PLUS people drop these little abbreviations and acronyms expecting everyone and their dog to already know them and it's just aggrevating as hell.
Someone said to me "theres potm"

What the bloody hell is a potm?!
OH YOU MEAN PRIESTESS OF THE MOON?!
And you know if you'd have to written it out the first god damned time there would have been a need to write it out completely in the end now wouldn't there!?

People do this with MMORPG locations too.

I have no damn problem writing out Windranger, everytime, even in game, and I have no issue typing out Skullcano,(insert name or object here)

There are some acronyms and abbreviations that make sense or come with a generic understanding, like CPU or GPU, or come with a specific reference and definitions, like DPS, APM, but most of the time, the usage of acronyms is irritating, and lazy.

WR? I'd rather give her the respect and write her name out.

I can understand a bit in game where things are quick and you have to be quick with communication, but this is a forum... there's no rush or reason to abbreviate her name like that

I can understand nicknames l like Windy, but cmon "WR" on a forum post where you have all the time in the world.

(once again I'm not trying to offend anyone i just want to rant)

Good day everyone!

I just saw there is an OCN dota group on steam.

May I join?

My steam ID:

http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198000326999/



As for Fran's rant:

I think some people find it cool to use acronyms or maybe more pro somehow.

Like:

"What? You did not get it when I said SF? Shadow Fiend of course!" hahah

Staff of Wizardry will give you the same damage. Only thing the Orb nets you is some extra health and the Staff can me upgraded to more utility items faster.

Take a look at Force Staff, its amazing on WR. The movement helps get a perfect shackle or an extra powershot which is devastating early. 2 maxed powershots can down a support or squishy carry early.

Or maybe blink. I don't think WR needs more damage items unless you lost game momentum badly.

Oh and never calling her Windra**** and she's not Windrunner anymore so... WR will have to do for me. Should have seen how riled up I was about the name change. Also calling her Windrunner might add unnecessary confusion to people just joining the thread.
