Has to be a pseudo-blink.
Tablet is bought so often, it'd make the skill so much more potent. :[ but o well.
Carries have always needed monitoring, and were always the canary that showed imbalances first, but up until a few years ago, they were pretty heavily marginalised and broadly useless in most dominant metagames...
You can easily point to the gameplay mechanics that make carries completely indispensable, and frankly, stronger as heroes than straight up supports and sane gankers, as I have done on many occasions. Sure power creep made these concepts obsolete, but carries led the curve on power creep every time, and (I'm going to use this word properly this time) it is very obvious which factors enable carries to loleasymode into the items they need in order to carry.
Carries almost never compete with anything but other carries and semi-carries and this is a legitimate problem, which has existed in HoN forever. Supports et al still get "outcarried" before 20 minutes and all the comfortably overpowered but non scalar 2000 gold items in hell won't change this as long as no reliable mechanisms exist to take gold off carries and/or outright stop them exploiting their scaling mechanics. But surely I've ranted enough about this that I'd anyone were prepared to sit up and listen, they would have instead of dallying for, what, three ****ing years over these problems.
Leaving carries effectively unchallenged in their ability to carry, except by being outcarried by semicarry gankers and other types of carries, does _not_ make the game faster, it makes it dumber...
Protip: X (mechanic) enables Y (noun) to Z (verb).
Not: X is an enabler (of what, how?).
The term enabler is virtually meaningless outside of psychology (where it describes a particular type of causal relationship) unless the various terms around it are at least defined in a cursory manner.
Using it as it is used above is akin to saying "X causes!" which only serves to obfuscate otherwise clear arguments.
Edit: this reminds me of a post in the hotbl thread I meant to reply to, but never did... Hmmm...

Now that there is finally an avatar out for BH, maybe S2 will buff him so we can actually use the avatar.
This is how ALL ARTS devs balance their games.
And THIS is how you shut down Pimp Slayer
China, how the hell did you get that fancy green shield? What have I missed??

But why would you want a colour other than purple (or, gold if you're into being elitist, I guess)?

Happy New Year Balance Forum.
And to make this thread on-topic: Balph's charged ult needs a serious cd reduction. 120 seconds is way too long, and a Balph without an ult in a teamfight is a useless Balph.
I'm still banned, apparently.
Also, happy new years everyone - and happy birthday to me for yesterday (31/12 baby, awwww yeah)!
My protip for the year: Don't drag home an orange ***** to ****, even if she does have legs that go on forever, and is hot as ****. Leave it as a fingerbang and forget on the dance floor. Hope everyone had/is having a good new years
I'll be back to being a caustic lovable **** for 2012 <3
What? You brought home a player?
How the hell did you even convince her you weren't a ?
I have a feeling there is a story behind that tip...
Also happy new year to everyone and let's hope there's a new balance patch to bring in the new year :P
I have a more compelling tip. 30mg of codeine synergises with the OTC herbal pills called zonk to reduce breathing to <6 breaths per minute in a healthy, fit 85kg male who may or may not have had a lot of experience with doses of codeine a lot higher than that recreationally before being subjected to regular drug tests.
Also, vomiting, disorientation, dizziness, vertigo, lapses of consciousness accompanied by total loss of breathing until consciousness was restored. For about four hours.
Worst New Year's Day yet. The hangover WAS better than the cure.
