you rule makers do know Astro has a mechanic that stops it from being spammed. You can only be healed by 1 Astro every 25 secs, ie 2 Astros is enough to heal constantly, anymore than that is a waste because they dont work.
Backdooring is pressing an advantage you already have.
If you don't want to get backdoored don't let them have that advantage.
It's like banning a team from controlling the map and farming SORRY GUYS YOU MIGHT BE WINNING BUT YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT BECAUSE WE DON'T LIKE IT!
Just so we're clear your opinion on the matter is that it matters who DESERVES to win in this game? No thats stupid there is only WIN or LOSE, not deserves to win or deserves to lose.
I could try to come up with some scenario where it would be harmful and youre going to have your theoretical THEN I WOULD DO THIS, and we could sit here and having a typed chess match but thats stupid. you think youre right, I think im right but 95%(fake percentages iknorite) of all tournies/leagues/ladders etc etc do not allow backdooring and its for a reason.
I have three questions for you:YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO... BECAUSE WE DON'T LIKE IT!
Do you think there should be restrictions on what items a team can have and why?
Do you think there should be restrictions on how you use a hero's abilities and why? (e.g. Behemoth creep-blocking)
Would you be for/against implementing the ability to pool items in this game and why?
Honestly given the current items there probably shouldn't be any restrictions on items right now. The restriction on sheep/cyclone is the only relevant one really and if you don't want all the casters on the other team to be disabling you then you probably shouldn't let them farm massive items but overall item restrictions don't bother me that much unless they're incredibly stupid.
An example of a good restriction was necrobook (puzzlebox) pre nerf and mek (astrolabe) when you could stack them.
I haven't dealt enough with behemoth creepblocking to know if I'd want it or not. Is it annoying? yes. Do I want it to happen to me? No but I don't want to die or get ganked either. The only thing that matters is if it's overpowered or not.
Item pooling should never and will never be allowed in serious games of either dota or hon.

awesome thanks for the answer fenald...mine is something quite similar..though creep blocking in dota is only allowed by hero model and not by use of spells like fissure..unless its accidental
Behemoth creep blocking the start of the game can pretty much deny an entire wave of creep experience, but then again it has it's downsides. Mid tower takes damage, Earthshaker has less mana or shows up late to the lane.
