Nobody likes my layout? Sad

Anyway, I suggest some heroes like Sven, LION, and LICH. Sven will get you ready to have carry potential and feel the speed of the game compared to LoL. Lion and Lich both have money shot skills and are really great utility heroes. Lion has practically the same ulti as Lina but has more dependable disables than her. Lich's ulti is easy to pull off if you can understand it. Smiley Try them out!

All the heroes are cool anyway and you can play every hero differently as they can be played in a variety of ways. All of them except Drow Ranger because she is boring.

Also putting your cursor on top of the skill icon will show you the range it has. It's also written sometimes.

re: range

type dota_disable_range_finder 0 in console. it shows you the range in the form of a green line when you press a skill. if you move the cursor outside the range, the line turns red.

also dota_range_display 1200 is good if you're playing anti-mage or qop or to want to get used to experience range. very handy if you're trying to leech xp and trying to be as far away as possible.

But why is timbersaw a micro hero?
Short cooldown abilities that require special targets. That's micro to me, but you're free to disagree.

The problem with Timbersaw is that some of his skills need trees to work, and his other skills destroy trees. This makes him highly unintuitive to play compared to other heroes. He's also not a very good hero in general. I think his win rate is almost as low as Meepo right now.

One of my friends used to make fun of me because I get Tranquil Boots on Rikimaru. I couldn't help smiling when I watched this N0tail video and noticed he had a pair of tranqs on. Vindication!

There is now a Lina hat in the store for $35~

I wouldn't exactly call it a hat, though. You put it in the Head slot, but it actually changes everything about Lina, including the portrait, spells and icons. With that in mind, the price tag seems fine to me.

For those of you who have followed the Dota 2 beta since the beginning, it's based on the original Lina concept art.

The $35 dollar cosmetic is so fucking outrageous that articulating why would cause me physical pain.

But Hotline Miami isn't free, so in that case the paying customers don't have to carry the financial burden of another, much larger crowd that doesn't even own a credit card.

What I'm saying is, comparing prices between items in F2P games and traditional purchase-based games is sort of silly.

You do have to understand that creating an item with a lot of value that can easily be acquired without any smoke or mirrors.  It's probably good for the economy to have an item that a kid with too much money can get his hands on and put out there.

if you compare the item to the legendary skins of LoL, which I believe is a far comparison, you get an idea of how high the price is.

legendary skins in LoL change nearly everything about a hero, the skin/model, animations, voice over, artwork, particle effects, etc. and they cost less than half (15 dollars) of what this lina item does.

but whatever, if people want to pay that much then go for it. though I am under the impression this is just another one of Valve's pricing experiments. probably testing the waters to see how much people will pay for a single fancy item.

People will pay for it, whatever its priced so they can attempt to impress people. (See rich people that buy scribble paintings with absurd prices.)

It's worth noting that League skins have no resale value (if you buy them they are chained to your account forever) while the Lina hat can be traded for videogams or other items should you ever grow tired of it.
