DOTA 2 Catch-all

Sunday 5v5? In.

I'm in, just give me a time (preferably after 4:15 EST so I'm not distracted by my NFL team getting spanked again).

I'm completely in for a 5v5.

On the subject of dicks in Dota... It's always been a problem and it's always really pissed me off because I love the game but it seems to attract the worst kinds of internet racists/trolls/homophobes. I'm almost out of reports.

Somewhat relative to the whole bit about overextending, etc. Courtesy of Day9 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iaz9e...

Cask-- I totally agree with you, and I feel similarly...conflicted about speaking out. What finally got me to speak up was when something anti-semitic was rolled out. I spoke up then. I don't know why that triggered it as opposed to the other horrible things that get said.

I do take solace in that it's only the non-gwj guys, but that makes me feel bad too.

So who's in on the 5 man? Xanta? Cask? Harry seemed interested.

I'll add you on steam nossid.

I know I'm guilty of it in the heat of the moment, I will call things "gay" or "queer" once in a while which is so out of my character. I don't know what it is about this genre that gets by blood boiling, so I will apologize in advance if it does happen. I've had to remove some people from my list that were far more heated than me, and would be a liability in every game we played together.

Ya I'm down for whatever, when I'm around.

So how does 4:30 est on sunday sound? I think me and Harry play the most-- if we get enough people together he and i can talk and split up the teams based on skill so we get something kind of even. So, we've got 5 regs commited and one xanta. I'll talk to one of our online allies to pick up a 6th if another goodjer isnt interested in being our relatively experienced player. Suggestions on newer guys? Sithload? Ulairi? Manarch? Spread the word guys!

I'm down.

I guess the anti-semtic bit was directed at me. I lived in a jewish neighborhood for a while, so I would always joke with jewish friends on that topic. I realize it's a touchy topic and will refrain from commenting as such. I agree about keeping a civil note while playing a game with other folks. My issue was I was thinking everyone is like minded, so I went along with that thinking that people would understand my level of thought. I understand that is not the case.

I'm looking forward to a pre-made between GWJ and some normal folks we play with.

Oh, and my apologies to anyone who has a Jewish identity, I did not want to offend anyone with my comments.

4:30 on Sunday works for me. Saean won't make it Sunday (he was only ever semi-active on GWJ).

On the subject of people that make rude remarks, I agree. I had no idea that particular internet friend of mine (Sexy Action Jesus) was gonna be as bad as he was. Aximus is a good friend of mine (albeit a "goon" from Something Awful) and probably doesn't go beyond saying "that's gay" or "go f yourself" to the opposing team. He generally has a decent disposition toward goodjers.

In general, I'm trying to steer clear of the worse negative types.

Oh, I have a mythic jug for the Brewmaster if someone wants to offer a trade. Since I'm not really a brewmaster kinda guy.

You are welcome to look through my stuff, I would be interested.

None of the heroes I play really have items :(.

That's my one mythical as well. The wine bottle for brew.

I have the wine bottle for brewmaster as well. I guess it's not so Mythical?

Anyone having a Strange Grip of the Swordmaster for Sven? Have that set in strange items, missing just that little sucker.

Does everyone have lots of DOTA2 invites? Cause weirdly Steam gave me another if anyone else is in need. Feel free to find me through Steam.

if you need another for a 5v5 shoot me an invite

This latest update, i think icefrog has started drinking. Drows passive is ridiculous, centaur is broken. We outplayed a team just now but because of drows passive their creeps were always in our base. Their siege creeps damage was 40+55 and just tore through our towers an base during any team fight.

Centaur+Magnus is f*cked up to play/lane against.

Yeah, Centaur and Drow are borked beyond belief.

Yeah I smell a centaur nerf incoming. Prolly one on drow too, but less severe.

Drow is fine, except for the passive on creeps.

I agree, no global. 1200 range on stampede would be fine. but being able to coordinate a 3 lane gank, is a little ridiculous.

I started a lobby. [GWJ] casktapper. name/password = GWJ/GWJ

Saw a good tip for using the secret shop from the Dire mid. Basically there is one tree you can cut down to get in range.
