Calm

    Interesting. I myself like to use "Relax you're doing fine". Surprisingly it works most of them time. They would usually stop blaming each other or just play more safely. It gives them some motivation and the feeling that its gonna be fine and it doesnt matter even if they're dying a lot because youre getting more space.

    Calm

      also the false feeling that you care about them more than you actually do. or the chance of winning isn't as bad as they think it is

        So you try to say that dota+ can win the game? Affirmative. Gaben agenda at it finest.

                Another solid reason to spam Axe to gold:

                "Axe misjudged?" - At the start of the game to say the enemies team selection was garbage.

                "I say Good Day Sir!" after every successful Cull... Polite and taunting

                "You deserve Nothing!" - As you destroy the Ancient.

                    "The introduction of all chat hero lines has provided a cheekier way to tilt your enemies." Pay2win confirmed?

                    PERFECT TOAST

                      Always funny when I see people complaining about DotA somehow becoming pay to win. Like, do you just expect all your games to be free? Yeah, lets just hand you a game and the people who make the game won't get paid. Fuck the developers. They don't matter.

                      It's only $4 a month. Less if you subscribe for a longer period at a time. If you can't even afford that, I think you have bigger issues to worry about than DotA being "pay2win".

                                  The question is not about how much it costs, but about whether the people you are matched up with have been given the same opportunities as you. Overwatch is monetarily fair because everyone paid the same cost of entry and has no barriers to gameplay content. League of Legends on the other hand does have barriers to gameplay content. If some people go in with something they paid for that affects the outcome of the game, then the outcome cannot be said to have occurred solely on the basis of the skill of the players. That being said, I'm not of the mindset that using the new all chat taunts are in any way more affective than a common message, so to me the game still does not provide a non-skilll-based tiered competitive environment.

                                      It only matters of understanding dude, Dota2 doesn't really pay2win game as we knew from the start, but as TI progress and crowdfunded prizepool rocks, and just any fundings can always help the game to the better, they offer stuff to sell without directly affecting the game itself like arcana etc, you don't expect people pays without granted anything right? So they are giving up the least affecting factor bonuses to the game as appreciation to those who are supporting them. You have a point there though because Dota2 is a mind games, just like other sports, may it be soccer of basketball, taunt is non game violation which is where you wrong when you mentioned Dota2 being not competitive.

                                        @PERFECT TOAST same goes to arcana which act like any sport players uniform, these things did not change the game mechanics, only appearance, whilst taunt is a very different form, they are substantially has the same effect on the players mind. i.e. Chinese basketball players will have a better morale when they are playing with red or yellow colored uniform.

                                          I can't tell if you are disagreeing with me or just taking my comment as a jumping off point, but the question of cosmetics definitely irks me sometimes. Drastic changes to sound effects or the color or size of a hero bugs me because it can confuse for just a split second which feels like an advantage

                                            @Espada

                                            Read over your message again and I think I din't make myself clear maybe? I'm fine with Dota adding cosmetics and taunts and stuff like that because it largely doesn't interfere with the gameplay (except for a few color changes and sound effect changes). I don't see the taunts as being an advantage because you can still taunt if you don't pay for plus, so everyone is still on even footing. Valve promised the game would maintain a level playing field years ago, and they have stuck to that very well.

                                            Never meant to sound like I thought dota2 was not competitive, but I see how my wording was confusing

                                                    I find that most [Allied] chat wheel use is passive aggression. It's often better to use chat and be genuinely constructive. Edit: typos

                                                        Currently the Enchanted Mango has a 31.18% win rate. This is a tragedy. Whether being accidentally used while still in fountain or used just in time for that clutch nyx stun saving your teammate's life, it has always made memorable game impacts. It is our duty and responsibility as fellow gamers and members of this community to give the item the win rate it deserves. Thank you in advance for your support.
