  1. No issues at all with neither 2080rtx not 3080rtx here. FPS are around 220. I also don't think that GFX card matters much in regards of HoN. 

    It's very well possible that the combination of components causes an issue or it could be a driver issues. I would try to reinstall windows (if that was not done yet) to ensure it's not any driver issue (that's quite common when upgrading a graphics card..). Other than that, you can provide your other specs and try some benchmarks to compare your overall performance..

  2. If the root was physical, DW could solo kill most of the carries regardless of shrunken head throughout most phases of the game (at least the important ones). That would indeed be concerning. Having the damage physical while the effect itself being magical seems to be a decent game to me..

  3. I don't want to see any of the mentioned heroes in jungle to be honest. I'd much rather see current junglers being viable on lane.

    Tempest and Ophelia are already decent if played as supports. Their harass and deny potential is really good. Imho underrated as supports. 

    Legio is not really viable on lane, neither is parasite but I'd love to see them in lane more often. While legio is rather easy to adjust, not sure what to do about para.

  4. It was always a very decent item and the effect is really strong. It provides crucial attributes, especially the movement speed. Aside from that it provides the most important thing: survivablity. The longer the carry lives, the longer he can output damage. Escaping a potential gank or surviving a teamfight can be gamechanging.

    Also the damage is decent. If your carry has 300 damage per hit you have 200 extra just from those illusions. I usually pick it up almost every time I play an agility carry - especially on ranged it's great. Depends on the matchup of course but I personally can understand why it was nerfed.

    In my eyes BH is just such a overpowered noob hero. 

    When playing against him, he comes around and presses R and Q and you can't do a shit. 


    They even made him more noob-like putting away the boosted dmg of Q-effected targets ...

    Before 2016 you had at least think to put your Q on yourself or an enemy.


    His utilities are extreme. A global sight on health-low enemies with a boosted speed and revealing invis. Even more, the whole team see's it. 


    The range of his R is a joke (1000 range !!!) and as it is Superior Magic Dmg you can't even counter it with a SH.



    Sorry to say but in higher brackets he is a non factor as on every position there are far better alternatives. He is an anti carry but can be countered heavily by items (don't forget that you also have a team). He needs to pick up kills as he has a rather poor farming potential compared to carries. A tp counters him early on. Voids on supports, SH on cores (it doesn't counter the magic damage but it gives you time to port out or even counter his silence). His main benefit is to ulti the enemy carry in teamfights so he can be kited easily (or even has to port out/using sh). However, even if you get ultied by BH, carries usually have more farm - if they have lifesteal they can just stand and autoattack and still be a threat to him. He is one of the few melees that can survive a midlane but that's about it.

  6. I think I had more diamond chests than silver chests. From my experience cs:go is far worse. It's all about luck, not about a rigged systems. If you expect something, you should not gamble.

  7. Responding with insults is not and was never tolerated. It creates a further toxic atmosphere and makes you part of the problem. If you start to reflect your behavior instead of trying to find excuses and blaming other players for your actions, you will notice that the system is actually fine.

    What manu said is correct. The majority of verbal abuse reports are handled automatically as context does not matter. If someone insults you or griefs, it does not allow you to breach the rules yourself. You don't have to respond with insults. You should report him and move on.

  8. How you determine that someone is not playing "his" role? And who dictates roles and forces you to play one?

    Just because you are fast in selecting your lane/calling your role it doesn't necessarily mean others have to adjust. I mean, sure it would be better if people adjust but in the end people can play whatever role they like to play. Picking phase should be used to build the best possible team. If someone else wants to play the lane you called, you may as well adjust (especially if the other player is the better one or e.g. a carry-exclusive player).

    Also, in Dota, if you select the same lane as someone else, you will not get suspended unless you grief and as long as you play the game normally to win.

  9. How does it prevent anything? You can still have multiple people selecting the same role. Even if that wasn't possible, people can still go anywhere in game.

    This still happens in other games too regardless of the role selection. Problem is that people think that this is "fist calls, first serves" and are not willing to adjust.

  10. Play calm, don't get mad if other players are not doing what you expect them to do. Be versatile on picking phase - play the role that your team needs instead of insisting to play a role at the start of the game. If people are trolling, don't feed them but adjust your plays.

    Most important: Don't blame other players. In 99% of the cases you die because of your mistakes, not because of anybody else. If you reflect your mistakes, you will get better.

  11. Hello,

    disagree on both kraken being weak and the restrain should be reverted.

    The restrain addition was great. He is now a counter and a threat to enemy heroes with an escape ability. Kraken deals tons of damage with his E. Even if they won't reach the center you will likely get 2 E's off if you ulti someone. It's forgiving already as even if you don't perfectly hit it, you still deal tons of damage with 1 E and your other 2 spells.. If you manage to pk + w stun 1-2 enemies they are likely dead.

    I don't see the need in buffing him further nor do I see the need to nerf him - for me he is in a healthy spot..

  12. Hello,

    first of all, you are breaching the forum rules by discussing RAP related stuff in here and calling out players on the forums.

    Second, IF you do, you should not be twisting my words. I already told you that ChinaViruses is a generic word not necessarily racist. It could be any other country as well therefor it's not explicitly forbidden by our guidelines. There are all type of viruses (biological, technical etc.) created/worked on in almost  every country.

    I also told you that in the "new" pandemic context it could have a offending meaning but there was simply no internal discussion yet on how to proceed with those. Since there was not, for now the nickname is allowed, I also told you that this might change in the future. Aside from that, you have not provided any proof and from my knowledge there was no banning of any of these terms yet.

    Next time, please stick to your inquiry instead of creating a forum post or at least stick to the forum rules and create an actual discussion thread.
