Barely won a game last night where our mid got absolutely demolished by a rubick who built witchblade into daedalus into satanic and was hitting for over 700 crits with a pretty high AS.

What happened in the patch that made that work?

Nothing that I can think of caused any of those specific things to happen tbh you probably just ran into someone who does fun things

Glad to see people experimenting more with shards these days. Like every patch reviewer was going "this sucks, this hero will never get 1400 gold!" in both big shard patches. Like okay I get it, it fucks with the timing of alot of life saving items your low farming hero needs to not die or a powerspike a hard carry really doesnt wanna miss, but they're waaaaaaay overdramatic about how much 1400 gold is. Then there's the lazy option where you don't get a shard cause it gives a new ability and "I don't want another button to click" or "I'll forget to use it".

I mean... Every streamer tried basically every shard and aghs when they launched. Lots of them were weak af. This Luna thing, for example, is new.

Luna as a pos 5 is very viable. Maybe a little weak in the early game, but you have the potential to farm the jungle when walking across map so you aren't poor as poo poo.

What's the appeal of Luna pos 5? I know some Chinese teams ran it in the previous patch. If it was pos 4, I can see the appeal behind her Aghs ult.

In my two last games with somewhat passive lanes as pos 5 I've managed to farm a raw ags at 24 min, then transition into a shard about 4 min later. That's with about most of the wards on the map. The farming potential once you secure your lane let's you get item timings to support team fights before 30 min.

A little dota2 boy asked his father, "Dad how did I get my name?"

"Well, son, when your sister was born we looked out of the lobby and saw a spronking enchantress, so we named your sister Spronking Enchantress. When your brother was born we looked out of the teepee and saw a scouting hawk ,so we named him Scouting Hawk, so my son, Dirty Techies Spammer. when you ask how you got your name....

Man, I feel so embarrassed listening to Jenkins. Heís like a walking critique of the society which produced him. There should be a narrator superimposed on his life, earnestly telling us how we couldíve made a difference for this troubled young man before it ever got this far.
