Imagine in-game chat with integrated google translate. :shock:

Every man ought to understand that he's a goddamn faggot first, if any progress is to be made.

I didn't know anyone still used them ever since the Chinese got the Perfect World server. Amazing.

Also the amount of terrible SEA/Russian players who go on the Australian server is baffling.

For some reason there are a lot of Chinese players on the European servers. They tend to refuse to communicate until you ask them how hard it is to get a wife, how bad the corruption is, insinuate that their friends googled "human rights" whenever they disconnect, etc.

Frankly, I'm surprised they're interested at all in a game that is not blatantly pay2win. Like LoL, although its fanbase will debate you about this until they killed off what little neurons they had left.

From what I have read Wc3 dota is more popular than DotA 2 and pretty on par with LoL. There seems to be a massive stigma against playing LoL in China if you are a university student.

For us it's just mostly broken English and a lack of any awareness. I had a Medusa this morning who didn't know you could farm the ancients for 20 minutes to get fat, who instead decided feeding their PA was a more appropriate playstyle

Oh really, do tell where you got that information. I'm intrigued.

As for your game, that's probably the skill bracket you're in. Just get better.

Medusa farming the ancients is super predictable though. You'll get killed over and over.

Or a support dedicated to blocking the spawn with wards will ruin your day.

Anyway, the bracket in which that strategy works is great fun. You get about 80% wins with Medusa that way because you get guaranteed farm every single game if you don't mess up your stacking.

I honestly think it was something I read on Reddit when they were circlejerking about LoL, but judging by the amount of people who stream DotA 1 on yy.com I wouldn't be surprised if it was a little true.

For me I'm dabbling between normal and high depending on god knows what factor the MMR system has but yeah it seems to work very nicely in normal bracket because people just seem to think that you don't exist until you come out with gear really early and shit on lanes.

Lawl. I wonder if the dickbag who "made" (actually just took over from the original creator, then proceeded to ratchet up the suck) Element TD for Frozen Throne will be all butthurt.
