    I always get matched with bads that don't know how to pick a proper team.

    Imbalanced

    I think Fayde is really broken. I don't build codex on her and I still net 20 kills a game in 1800 pubs.

    It gets to the point where their entire team does small neuts together.

    But Fayde is just a Pebbles that can't use Portal Key.

    (Well, not as effectively)

    I like Fayde a lot more. Treewalking... Treewalking. Invis... Invis.

    Can't see me! Oh, and she destroys Magebane... All these Magebanes I've been seeing lately. Makes me mad.

    I think balancing for pubs is a terrible idea, and I think Deadwood needs a buff.

    That would be Nome.

    On another note. RA is really pissing me off. Every ****ing game I see this easy mode hero dominate.

    Noxious cloud can't damage even creeps at level 4, let alone heroes, increase damage.

    Midas obligates the whole other team to buy mystic vestiments because he has too much damage.

    Either start increasing S2 heroes cast time for abilities or balance accordingly the old dota heroes cast times (Defiler, Succubus, Blacksmith i.e.) they take too much time to cast compared to the new heroes which could be one of the reasons they arent being picked.

    Stop buffing Armadon, ty.

    1800 pubs still don't buy revelation wards, fortified bracers, mystics?

    Yeah they deserve to jungle together then.

    As for my QQ rant, I hate all the strength heroes with escape mechanisms. Kraken, Midas, Maliken, even Drunken Master. Why can't I kill them AAAHHH!!
    Every hero below has one or more new ability effects, Check them out:

    I pick Fayde when I see an enemy EW or MB and gank them mercilessly (yes I still rep codex hard).

    I then ****-talk them in all-chat to drive down their morale.

    Lack of strategical diversity (as opposed to tactical diversity) drives such a plethora of bad habits and perceptions in this game. It's scary how bad it's gotten.
    Let me spell it out plain for you
    Angry people complain about the things I do
    I'm not changing direction, I'm stepping my game up
    Maintaining my name, the same way I came up.

    Truth is, I thought it mattered
    I thought that music mattered.
    But does it? Bollocks!
    Not compared to how people matter.

    Midas is str, ranged and has an escape mechanism.

    How many hero design "rules" were broken there?

    He's only STR because he'd be too strong as an int hero (he'd gain 0.8 more attack damage on average per level).
    His STR gain isn't exactly high for a strength hero. And still not the highest for non-strength heroes.

    He's only above Ra for str gain per level for strength heroes.

    Kraken is the STR hero with an escape mechanism where it might pose an issue.

    Rampage should be banned from being on the other team. Or at least, if he's on the other team I should get a free Nullstone.

    I'd sing you a song, but
    I'm just a little hoarse.
