Wwhy, I havven't seen such a pack of glubbin tree wweasels since wwe rousted the Tremblin Isles free of the... er, tree wweasels!
...I could be completely wrong though.
oh no oh no
you just got your Homestuck in my DotA
NOW I CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT WHICH HERO CORRESPONDS TO WHICH CHARACTER
Much like Homestuck, DOTA has a million characters.
Much like DOTA, the characters in Homestuck die for ten seconds then respawn.
So far all I've come up with is that Karkat would play Axe
Aradia might play Krob
Sollux would play Tinker, Tavros would play Enchantress, Eridan could play Anti-Mage when he isn't Kunkka, Rose would play Enigma and build Necro 3 every single game, Dave might play Lanaya or Mortred, Dirk would play Juggernaut, Jade would play Nature's Prophet. That's all I can be bothered to think of right now.
I wonder who Broodmother would be...
Dave would play Alchemist to be ironically shitty. Because seriously, what does Alchemist do?
Alchemist tanks all the things with his ulti. That and his stun.
The only good thing I can see about Alchemist is that in theory, if he gets to freefarm for absolutely ever and has a full item build of carry items, he's probably in the top 10 at pure DPS. Maybe.
Vriska would play phantom lancer. Eight illusions. Hard carry. Totally her bag.
Jake would play gyrocopter maybe.
Sollux as invoker? Eridan as silencer?
Nyx, Light Keeper and Visage should be on the test server some time today, did anyone say that already?
Visage looks like the most interesting mechanically, I hope Nyx is as close as they can stay to the Anub'Arak model though because Anub'Arak is a BAMF.
Visage just seems... odd. Limited CC, weird damage, hugely micro dependent, and with a weird slow+aspd slow thing.
I always hated playing as visage..
Keeper is really good but not very fun
Nyx is basically a melee version of lion with cooler stuff
Seeing as they both have the same stun, another form of CC, a mana draining skill, and a high burst damage ultimate... yeah, they do seem very similar.
Disruptor is a lot more fun than I thought he'd be.
Just gonna say that Venomancer is played as a support hero so much that it doesn't seem like people know how scary he can actually be.
Case in point: I just played a game as Kaldr (I'd forgotten how much fun he is) where our Veno got twenty kills.
Veno's a killing support and does very well with a level advantage, but he really does not scale that well with items relative to most real carries that have some kind of steroid or multiplicative scaling.
I mean, I played Pipe Mek Wardbitch Veno and got a dozen or so kills, but by lategame it was our carry (IIRC it was Skeleking) that was stealing the show and bringing the thunder.
Yeah, I'll admit that he's more of an early game hero than anything else, but still.
And another thing: It's kind of disappointing that whenever I'm in Dota at the same time as people on my friends list from here (yes I know it's a mouthful) they're either in a five-stack or they're way above my skill bracket. :c
