Ok so Slark isn't inthis game but the discussion while queueing was so funnny I had ot leave it in. I played Keeper of the Light this game. Always fun to play giving unlimited mana to your team. Can be a problem in the laning phase. I have to be careful I don't disrupt Luina's farm too much by pushing with illuminate but at teh same time I need to constantly harass Windranger. I can't easily trade with her so it has to be spells

Decided to try out a Lina support, with the bonus mango to start beeing far too appealing to pass up today. Lina has great range on her right click which allowed me to continually trade with the Phantom Assassin and the Leshrac

Its always a difficult decision on Treant Protector as to when to get ags. If you have a great start and get it early it can be devastating to the enemy team if you get it really fast. When yo ugo late it can be amazing to look for pickoffs before trying to close a game out but a midgame ags can often fell underwhelming. When who has the best vision can decide who wins a game of Dota 2 it can make or break a game, as well as the ability to farm lategame. with 1000+ gpm once you ge the wards up.

For Frostivus this year we have a selection of mini games played in rounds of 10 games. You get points each round. Theres no ranking so its just for fun. There are a lot of game modes which are randomly chosen.
Copying invoker, lose hp when you are too slow or invoker wrong.
Zeus race through a Techies mine field. use Lightning to see the mines.
Spirit breaker ring outs, bash people out of the ring.
Crystal mainden gets abused by pudge as he keeps trying to hug her. Freeze your opponents so pudge hugs them instead
Many, many more....

So this game had a rough start for me. I was playing Phoenix and kept overstaying my welcome expecting to be able to dive away. I kept getting stunned by Sven or Slardar just as I was about to dive away. Terrible start to a game vs a hero I need to have a lead on before they have echo Saber or I cant ult safely. Enemy team also had an Invoker, another hero who can be scary late game

This was a super fun game of Dark Willow. I haven't practiced her much but after I worked out how to make Shadow Realm deal over 9000 damage I decided to play a few games and test out the buildup and see how well she stacks up against different lineups. I started mid vs Medusa and I really don't know who should, win that matchup, I mostly play support so I'm definately not used to playing Dark Willow as a core.

Well this game started off really weird. I told the captian what heroes I played well and hadnt put too much thought into our whole team lineup. Then iot seems the captain was afk so anotehbr captain gets randomed. That guy asks who wants to be captain. Without realiseing we had used all our reserve time with the afk captain I said me. So we ended up randoming our 4th pick and going with a sub-optimal pick for last pick, my comfort hero Phoenix.

Ogre Magi is one of my favourite heros. I love the way Dota 2 gets there heroes chatting to each other and Ogre Magi talks to himself. REminds me of my twin brother. This game I was solo support, which is painful. Yes there was a pudge in the game but hes gonna want to be greedy. Thankfully he did help out a bit so I could be greedy too.

So Morphling is famous for the shotgun, maybe shotgun is the wrong word for Dark Willow. Maybe we should callit the HEAT build (High Explosive Anti-Tank). You can hit someone with Shadown realm with 9k damage and the closest you have to get is the 900 range for the bloodthorne. Bloodseeker has to get a little closer of course but thats his problem, hes a melee hero hes used to it. All he really needs to do is bloodrage and use his own Orchid. Bloodrage has an 800 cast range so realistically you can do this combo without anyone in your team getting closer than 800 range.
