considering there is no rules/report to prevent this kind of game ruining this is why i'm writing this thread
this is now the 4th game i play and people backdoor
doesnt matter which side does, i think it just ruins game
if 1 backdoors, then the other team full backdoor, and it never ends
ruins game, and make it extra boring in 1/4s
so i'd suggest in the actual game, there won't be such things
backdooring isnt forbidden, i can imagine, but without this rule Dota is just another unmannered game where people are animals and trash each others
my opinion is:
have every building invincible untill any of any enemy creep is around it
something like 800-1000 square
(creep passive aura making building vulnerable for example, but not changing any of the graphics, and ofc not seeing this aura on the creeps)
-> backdooring becomes impossible, no big game changes,
hope you will consider this, and at least try to find a way to fix it,
These whine posts are so annoying. Boo hoo I got owned so the whole game should change so I can win. Am I getting this right???
How about in the meantime, and it will be a long meantime, since I doubt bd will ever be completely disabled, you think up a way to counter people who backdoor? It sounds like what you're saying is that this "backdoor" strategy is overpowered or something, so why don't you capitalize on this knowledge? Could it be that you're simply too inept to pull this strategy off yourself, and this is what upsets you? News flash kid, this is a skill based game. Don't come crying cuz you lack the skill to deal with a strategy the game mechanics allow.
I'll tell you this much, if you play this game under the delusion that everyone will adhere to your personal set of rules & guidelines which are IMPOSSIBLE TO ENFORCE, expect frustration.
Instead of crying, why don't you go abuse this supposedly amazing bd strat, surely you should be able to win easily, creating more butthurt people like yourself who will come complain, which stand a much better chance at getting the game changed than your single whiner post.
i find it funny that window lickers say "there was a rule about backdooring in dota"... when they're partially right, but totally wrong. the "no bd" rule was a pub thing, TDA games allowed it, and if you look real hard, you'll see nice big bold "BACKDOORING IS ALLOWED" wording in the game info...
learn to counter it, or learn to play another game... either way LEARN, because this kind of thing gets old after a while. kiddies cry because it's to hard to play because of x mechanic, so to keep the 6 year olds happy they change it... same thing goes for every game from dota to wow to hello kitty island adventure, and it needs to stop.
Some leagues indeed disallowed backdooring. I'm not against bd, at all, I think it's valid when the whole opposing team takes a massive liking of standing in the base and nailing us when we try to attack.
Just, well, call no backdooring and kick the guy who backdoors. I dunno. Homecoming stones are your friend, though.
Backdooring will always be a hot debate, most league / ladders around the world will state that BD of the first 2 towers without creep support is allowed but you have to enter the base with creeps, from then on you can move to any other buildings inside the base. Most people abide by this in PUB games as well.

Once they implement the health regaining changes from DotA it should be fine.
But also, having played competitive DotA, it's only really considered backdooring if it is a base tower. And in that case, if you have creeps in their base in another lane, it isn't backdooring. Outside towers being killed without creeps is generally accepted. They even added glyph to this game so be aware and always carry tps if you really care about the outside towers. But if they're in your base killing your towers without creeps, I don't agree with that.
