Sorry, but after HotS I can never go back to DOTA 2 ;p The removal of items, and the lanes no longer being sticky as fuck due to gold/xp only counting if you are involved in that kill, makes the game infinitely more smooth and fluid. It rewards strategic movement away from the lanes towards objectives and camps which believe it or not, can even happen in quick games. Maintaing the lanes is not even important anymore, as even a team pushed back to the citadel can turn an ENTIRE GAME AROUND by overwhelming an enemy that overextends their push.

This in turns makes games that are hugely open ended and not decided by 1 guy with tons of skill. If a public hodge pock team ends up in the same push behind a boss minion they just freed, then that is something you will literally never see happen organically in a random game in DOTA 2.. EVER.

I don't know how people describe Dota this way. I don't even care for it that much personally but those sorts of comebacks happen all the time, in fact the game was patched to try and lessen them because players felt the games yoyo'd too much. If a team plays like shit all game then they shouldn't be able to win through a single fudged push in my opinion, that's fucking retarded. HOTS is a game without much complexity, its just nonstop teamfights. If you like team fights without much nuance beyond 'i played my role properly and so did my team' then that's fine, some people like a little more depth which Dota barely even qualifies as.

MOBAs in general are not for me but I find the whole schtick of 'dota is too deep so it sucks!' to be a weird sentiment. It's not a particularly complex game to be blunt and HOTS is downright simplistic. If you have fun with either game then cool, fun is fun. I only play vanilla Minecraft and I won't pretend for a second that its a deep experience. I just don't know how people ever handled RTS games in the past when we're talking like these simplistic moba games are tough stuff.

You are completely right, would it surprise you if I told you my favorite RTS are CNC Generals, Dawn of War 2 and World in Conflict? I am not from a Star Craft or other micro heavy RTS background (in fact I hated Star Craft, liked the setting, but not much else). So I find a more shallow MOBA rts exactly right. Also as far as RTS games go, there are not a lot of em that I like, and even less that I would ever want to play online. DOTA2 is very stressful, it had nearly completely soured me from online RTS games ENTIRELY.

And no, DOTA 2 is not shallow. Items, Lanes, Minions and Upgrade path are VITAL in that game. This adds TONS of constant micro management to the game. Which is the kind of thing I really don't like

By the way, the reversal I meant was not a yoyo. We lost 2 fights in lanes pretty badly (4 guys dead at some point to a surprise heroics combination, don't often see Raynor picking Raiders AND mage picking ring of stun ;p) and that gave them a huge objective dominance. And we reversed that by defeating their citadel push and gaining objective dominance. This wasn't a "1 teamfight reversal" It took well over 15 minutes to gain that dominance and the resulting fights were thrilling and fun.

by the way, if you read my post again, you will notice one of the main things why I hate DOTA2 is that team can indirectly dictate what hero I play. That may sound good for the team at first, but when I am shit with a set of heroes I won't get better with them by team forcing me to play with em for 40 minutes of my life. I play to have fun, playing heroes I don't like, and literally suck at playing with, ain't fun.

In the end, all you need to read is this -> I hated any MOBA so far but.. I don't hate HotS (yet)

And hey, it's free. And I mean really free. Fair free to play (for now)

That kind of comeback can happen in Dota. Not in every game, of course, but it's not an unrealistic scenario. The hardest part is probably winning that first fight.

it is the kind of MOBA where you have fun tons of unique characters from Bliz Franchises and where elite pro games can still be elite, but not necessarily always end up winning a game.

If you squint, Dota 2 is that game too.

Hehe, I can't squint that hard. Also themed maps beat DOTA 2 into submission. Playing the spider arena is as awesome as playing the plant terror arena. All require different strategy and objectives.

In HotS the first fight is not as important (unless it's the skull mines, but even then since there is only 2 lanes even a bad team USUALLY ends up gaining at least 40% of the skulls). First levels revive time is under 10 seconds and you still gain XP from team. This means the entire team levels up at the same time meaning a dead guy can still end up reviving at just the right time with full skills to reverse a push, assuming the team doesn't stay and fight a hopeless fight, though I have had a teamwipe turn to a complete victory already in random pub game. And as you don't have gold and inventory to worry about, a death doesn't put you behind as much as it does in DOTA2. Meaning you can take more risks, and even if you fail.. well yeah, it gives the enemy 1000 XP or something, big deal. But you might have prevented that enemy from pushing, as now he has to go heal instead of going for objective ;p)

I won't say both games are better or worse. Only that for me personally (a MOBA hater!) HotS is way more fun because less micro management and more focus on macro strategy. It is.. a casual MOBA, and this is the level of RTS where I can have fun. In fact I would go even so far as to say that HotS is a good RTS. Sort of like Dawn of War 2 where you had the hero fight mode.

Or better put.. HotS is the casuals MOBA, and more importantly, it is the kind of MOBA where you have fun tons of unique characters from Bliz Franchises and where elite pro games can still be elite, but not necessarily always end up winning a game.

I hate MOBA's (specifically DOTA2) to the core, but I enjoy HotS, not as an addiction to play 1000 hours, never. But as a one off kind of game, 2 matches or something with a hero I just want to play that moment. No longer are you ramshackled into a hero choice by the team. Thank the fucking god. God I HATE that about DOTA 2 so much, I literally never played more than 5 games against humans. In HotS I am already at 31 games (27 of which are victories.. so yay for match-making or whatever)

So yeah... DOTA 2 has it's fans, but for me, HotS is.. more fun.

Also I never paid a single cent in HotS. If you do the math, until level 20 you get 15000 guaranteed gold +500 every time one of your heroes gets to level 5, and daily quests + rounds earning you about 15 to 30

This means if you are not caring about 10€ skins (lmao) then you can unlock the entire game without paying a single cent. And thanks to hero rotation, you are never stuck. Though, it is of course, still kinda grindy. Especially to level up heroes to lvl 5 you need 600k XP (so 2 to 3 rounds at the very least) only at lvl 4 do you get all skills.

RBR had better tracks and physics.. and a proper cockpit view.

Tell me, how the fuck does one make a trailer for a RALLY game, and not show off the cockpit, the fantastic turbo boosted engine whine and tire screeching... instead you have this shitty pop music and tracks that look flatter than they were in 1980's arcade machines.

What utter fail.

Re: Tornado Chaser Stops at the Wrong Location. In Soviet Union...

Maybe I'm really slow this morning, but what does the "In Soviet Union..." mean?
It means someone missed the memo about the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the USSR. Or they still think that joke is funny.

Blue back when I had a porch I'd roll the grill up to the most open part where the stairs are and grill there. Try that. Also unless your standing underneath a tree your chance of getting hit by lighting is so small its almost not there.

When there is a thunderstorm no sane person would ever grill outside. As the word implies, aside from thunder, there is also storm often accompanied by hail and rain.

Also the joke is "In Soviet Russia tornado chases you" you sourpusses .. and it's still funny

All the while wikipedia moderators and admins have become ever more entrenched in their cultural spin bullshit. Any critical piece of information is censored, false information enforced by top admins, topics blocked when admins disagree with changes even though they correct wrongful, spiteful or flat rout false information.

Let's face it, Wikipedia is part of the NSA at heart. If you want ideology free information, this is not the site you want to visit.

Of course not, but it's scary how some people live and breath by it as it if is all accurate and true.

The only thing I find it useful for is looking up music/bands info, movies & TV Shows info, video game stuff, because if that kind of stuff isn't accurate, who really gives a F&$K in the grand scheme of things. I also look up 'some' space & science shtuff, but mostly go to NASA or ESA.


Yeah, but I am pretty sure the wikipedia founder would not be happy if we told him we use WIKI only for marginal information

Also this goes 100% against what Wikipedia was supposed to be about, but considering how Wiki defines "relevancy" it doesn't surprise me. If you take corrupt media as source serious you already lost imo. And then all it takes is 1 corrupt admin and the whole thing is down shit creek.

Just sad, imo.

Finally is what I say on that matter, Ask Toolbar is one of the most annoying malwares ever. And that Java bundles this shit to scam people into over loooking that 1 checkbox should be illegal (same problem for Flash and that shitty AV bundlecrap).

These 2 things are the scourge of the internet. (Java and Flash, as well as the bundlecrap they come with)

Is it really that hard to break a car window yourself? (he wasn't underwater or anything)

It never used to be. I once kicked in a car window (rear door) to open the car to save a dog that was trapped inside in the heat.

Modern windows are probably a little more sturdy than ones in the 80s, but even so, shit, nobody could find a fucking brick to toss through the window??

Queue another big-ass lawsuit heading GM's way.

They're designed to blunt the force...do a youtube search on sparkplugs and car windows.

The trick with the sparkplug is ceramic, a tiny piece of it, thrown with full force against a car window, will shatter it. So breaking a car window is stupid simple, if you have a glass breaker in the car (which.. is required by law) then it's even easier. Side windows = 1 swing.

Am I evil that my first thought was "dementia" ?

And yeah, car features not being explained by dealers is a HUGE issue too. Just sad story all around
Where is a glass smasher required by law? It's not anywhere I've lived.

No you are actually right, I was wrong. It's not required by law (googled it after posting it.. hehe) turns out I have one though. So clearly it's common knowledge (I use my car like once a week)

That Corvette story is both awful and absurd, how the hell can you die inside a car that is just "locked" ? Sounds more like suicide.

Also the people trying to get him out don't break a window and rather let him die? WTF?

It's running more smoothly than Windows 7 did and it boot a lot faster too.

I just wanna mention something, on a high-end SSD rig with state of the art UEFI bios and Intel Hardware, win 7 pc cold boots in under 5 seconds from Power ON to login prompt. If you enable Uefi quick-boot and install the Intel drivers for that (And you really should not) then that's half a second from power on to login, you are actually faster on login than LCD screens turn on from stand-by. But it makes the whole system very susceptible in case of crash or power outage ,p

So Win 7 boots plenty fast already

So 700k, puts PC sales of W3 to about 1.2 million if you take steamspy (450k~) into account.

Dude? Did you even go to the link and watch the video? No, you did not because if you did then you would know that the numbers are 693,000 GOG Galaxy and 613,000 all other PC platforms combined = about 1.3 million PC copies out of a little over 4 million total so far.
I'm also not sure which version of SteamSpy you are using but the one that I know of has The Witcher 3 at approximately 575K owners.
So if SteamSpy is correct we're at 693,000 GOG Galaxy, 575,000 Steam, 38,000 others.

Arguing over 0.1 million guesstimate? Really? did you not find anything else today worth arguing about?

I dunno if I should feel honored or insulted.
