      tinker with midas is OP..

      Greentoa123

        I sense this article has been long needed, and is a bit late. The pace of the game seems to be in a constant state of speeding up, making many late-game strategies all but irrelevant. Midas perhaps has suffered the most from these patches. It is too expensive, offers too little, too late. I found the match used to show it's use rather amusing. A Chaos Knight is excellent at fighting, and typically has no need to have a midas. Much as the article says, a maelstrom could have easily replaced it, offering more damage and AS.

        In other news,

        Currently the Enchanted Mango has a 29.60% win rate. This is unacceptable. It is our duty as fellow gamers of the DotA 2 community to put this item in the position of power it deserves. It has been there for us when we needed mana for reincarnation, when we had that clutch nyx stun saving our teammate's life, and when we accidentally used it in fountain before the runes even spawned. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

                            read patch notes, CK illus do

                            AstralClocktower LadyMaria

                              Hand of Midas benefits into some pool of hero (but mostly, they're situational). Arc Warden is the only hero truly needs this item since its mechanic are unique. Invoker sometimes need it and mostly people build it anyway since Invoker is one of the most highly dependent level hero. Other hero such as CK, LS and Slark has better farming option or might never need them anyway. Some greedy 4th post such as Warlock and Winter Wyvern rarely needs them but usually favor them well. BTW, Illusion now benefits from raw attack speed change but only CK can keep his illusion in check since he has the strongest of them all.

                              On the other news,

                              Stop assuming other heroes gender. Some hero like Morphling, Io, or even Arc Warden never stated their gender (mostly they don't have gender or just unknown). If you're unsure which gender phoenix are (he's once stated as " infant son of suns ") just use it. (pls dont take this one seriously)

                                Illu benefit from aspd since 7.00 or smthing

                                And phoenix, hero with the biggest ball out of 115 heroes, yet u assume him as her...?

                                  Arc Warden is the only hero who makes Midas viable

                                    Why the comment are so triggered with virtual hero gender?

                                      i don't think it's as bad as stated here. It's about a 13 minute payback. if you get it at 7 minutes and you are a character with a 20-35 minute power spike, it can be good. For example, lone druid with midas helps get radiance much easier. The attack speed is good on the bear so the item isn't a waste in the early game. That's one situation, not an awful item.

                                        This might actually be a sign of the health of the game, since turtling strats are lame and boring to play/watch. Maybe the item should be creatively repurposed, like it boosts your allies' xp gain or something.

                                        feeding time

                                          Boosting allies XP? That's going to be broken AF...

                                          The Future Looked Bright

                                            Could it be repurposed to spawn a bounty rune? This would synergise with bottle and make it an interesting choice for other heroes as it would globally boost the team economy. The cooldown could be adjusted to ensure it's not silly powerful.

                                                        this article was late this time of the meta due to how many players below 3k dont understand that midas doesn't provide that much exp and gold anymore. Invoker can go power treads and 2 nulls to be useful. He can cast his 3 spells. Tornado, cold snap, meteor. Thats what players don't do in other brackets in mmr. Likewise this will take a while for players to adapt and understand why midas isn't great below 2k.

                                                        Queen Myxine

                                                          Midas died when it stopped giving as much xp.

                                                          Calamity-

                                                            why the fvck are you mentioning pheonix's gender here dfuq?

                                                            Target

                                                              Seems like Valve is nerfing farming intensive items or removing them entirely (e.g. PMS) in an effort to discourage excessive stand alone mentality.
                                                              Also since the change to bounty rune gold being divided equally between the team highlights the fact that player's were behaving so selfishly that even Valve considered it a problem.

                                                              Its a shame that Icefrog has sought to make these changes not to enhance the game but to remove some of the pitfalls of mmr seeker's cutthroat mentality to get ahead.

                                                              Alchemist aghs seemed like a great attempt at utilizing farm intensive playing for the betterment of the team yet instead most alchemists in my experience farm in a mercenary fashion.

                                                              A couple of games ago our safelane bounty hunter skipped ult and solo farmed; actively avoiding teamfights to obtain his battlefury.
                                                              Even in the midst of our team consecutively winning teamfights to avoid a lategame scenario this player showed little to no interest in securing substantive gold advantage.

                                                              Its disheartening to see DOTA's teamplay based potential limited by single minded individuals where tunnel vision gets the better of them and they don't integrate into the ebb and flow of a changing.

                                                              Its no accident that IO is one of the least picked heroes sub 4K.

                                                                    Dreadnought325

                                                                      Цей коментар був відредагований
