  1. Hello, you know this is not the correct section but to answer you: Your points are bannable and get banned on a daily basis. Keep in mind that it's called excessive verbal abuse so unless there are racist/homophobic/deathwish lines 1-2 outbursts are not sufficient. Calling someone a noob (which is not an insult per se) needs to be really excessive (15+ lines). Foreign languages are handled in a similar way, however, our AI is not able to handle all languages so these needs to be handled manually. This means that sometimes 2 reports are required if your report karma is too
  2. The described problem is one any int hero faces basically. The solution is an item that actually pierces spell immunity on all spells. (maybe 60% spelldamage is converted to superior magic damage and maybe Grimore is a good item for such thing). For magmus, there are quite some nice ideas, I'm still in favor of making him able to move while in sandstorm. I wouldn't directly buff his late game scaling with SOTM as this is a global problem and it requires a global solution imho.

    Thx Devs

    Other games do have a similar mechanic of some autobans depending on pick rates/win rates with some rng included on top of the regular bans. Considering there are soo many heroes to play, this could be an option to implement at some point as it also adds some more variety to the game.
  4. Hello, apparently that's not always possible. Just on certain events. You could try contacting customer support and see if they can provide you with a possibility to do so.
  5. Yeah, some trolls are doing that for quite a while.. Closing for now as there is nothing to be done about it.
  6. 15min seems a bit much for the junglers core item but yeah, that's not bannable and the game shouldn't be lost within that time frame. It surely happens but then again it likely wouldn't have made much of a difference as mid and shortlane were losing either way.
  7. Mind elaborating this further? I'm not sure what you mean by afking for 15 minutes. Either the timer kicks in after a few minutes or you are avoiding afk detection which should be reported.
  8. You should at least provide a match id and some timestamps for this..
  9. Mitigating that issue is not really possible, especially when it comes to connection/hw. Also, I don't see hardware/connection as a problem here. This is just a rare case. A solution could be similar to other games: You do not instantly random but lose some starting gold over time extending the timer for the picking. You only random when you lost your starting gold. The downside of this is that it can extend the picking phase by quite a bit.
  10. For me, also the easiest thing to do is giving the bottom circle a different color. Easier in a sense that visual effects on heroes are irrelevant and it's easy to distinguish regardless of what hero/avatar you play.
  11. Mag is in a fine spot, I agree his SOTM is not really worth picking up. A possible effect could be being able to move at normal speed while steambath is active and slightly increase the damage and/or give enemy heroes a miss chance when effected by steambath.
  12. If you go through silver bracket games, the amount of "inappropriate" item pickups is wide spread. This is not due to origin of the player. There are always cases where this happens - even in higher brackets. Considering the amount of people that were banned in the past for going scout codex and play for KS only, those were not only Russian players for example but it was fairly even split. People tend to jump on the Russian blame train. Yes, I agree the language barrier is partially a problem. But generalizing is still inappropriate. Like half of the people are considered Russian jus
  13. Russians were never a problem. Obviously, if you spread hatred from the start of a game people might act worse. Every game has these kind of issues. There is really no point to bring that "discussion" up over and over as there is no feasible solution. There is no benefit from country based servers. This brings large infrastructural problems aside from the problems with the playerbase and that you will never be able to find an actual game if you do that. Scratch the bias towards other countries. It's the same with Turkish people or Latin players. I can see the hatred spread towards other n
  14. Also, if needed, he can use his Q as an escape mechanic. Honestly I think apex is in a really good spot atm.
  15. Great stuff, I'd love to see veiled rod granting allied heroes invisibility as well. Maybe at a slightly higher cost. It encourages teamplay much more (at least that's what I experienced in my few hours of dota2). Really interesting change to kraken ult. Gonna try that asap. Same goes for Cthulu and Engi.
  16. Correct. Grinex is also one of my favorite suicide heroes. However, if you really purchase the full sb item including recipts after having a good early game, you are basically done as you have no survivability and no farming potential. Getting SH after SB is often a real mess therefor I stopped getting sb early (or leave it at lvl 1) to get sh asap. It is decent if you can get it really early into the game but you could as well get a cheap lex and a sh/pk/bulwark or whatever item instead. Also, if you pick it up on a carry (nomad was pretty popular to pick it) you basically have to
  17. Cases are rare when shieldbreaker is a decent pickup. Maybe making it ignore a % of the enemies armor (similar to the spellshards approach) would make it more viable. I much rather pickup a cheap Lex + a different damage item than a shieldbreaker.
  18. Hello, this will be your last warning as neither your suspension, nor possible other players offenses are allowed to be discussed here. The place is as mentioned above: https://rap.heroesofnewerth.com Your appeal was handled 1-2 days ago already so please refrain from spreading false information here. You were banned for griefing. If you don't want to get a suspension on the forums as well, you should stick to the rules when creating a post. Also: Losing 3 placements games where the player properly participated doesn't mean he meant to manipulate stats. Clos
  19. its not allowed to call out people here. Please file an inquiry next time. Besides, what you posted alone was not sufficient for a suspension.
  20. In the end, it is the logical consequence of the introduction of this server. NA playerbase split up. For now I guess you have to decide yourself whether you rather want long queue times or tick both servers and playing with high ping until there is a better solution..
  21. Hello, we suspend people manipulating stats permanently every day. It's not allowed to call out players on the forums. The only way to prevent this is by giving accounts a higher value. There is something in the works but it may take some time..
  22. I didn't really think of it in a defensive manner but more in an offensive one. Like you jump in and make enemies run into directions away from cthul to split up enemies and follow up team could catch the one running into their direction. But sure, it was just a thought, I still think there should be a change on the ulti to make him feel better. If you force them to attack cthul when within range for like 2s it would be more reliable but likely too similar to legios taunt..
  23. I think his Q->E combo is quite fun. My main problem with cthul is that his ulti (at least the 2nd part) is quite unreliable and feels a bit lackluster. I feel like this could be reworked. Currently it has a bit of synergy with his E, however, it might be better to remove that synergy and rather add something unique to the game. I could think of some fear spell forcing enemies to ran away from cthul without being able to control their hero. Or some aoe perplex.
  24. How about making his E passive (adding MS if a spell is casted, similar to pyros attack speed gain). Downside of that is that it cannot be cast on teammates anymore. To fix that, his W could be cast on a teammate with a similar, but turned around effect (slowing blitz while speeding up the allied target). That way he would still have a save mechanism.
