So if you recognize that Dota 1 did not see this problem as severely, (I say as severely because your idea that competitive Dota 1 did not have heroes that get infinitely more usage than others is just plain wrong) than you should also recognize why Dota 2 sees the problem. Dota 1 has a larger hero pool, you have more viable picks, counterpicks, and strategies to work with.

People stop playing heroes when you destroy them as those heroes.
You're talking about low level pub games where people don't understand how to counter-pick, counter-build, or counter-strategize in the slightest.
Invoker can't do much if he's silenced
AM can't do much if he's silenced or disabled
Furion can't push anything if you have a nuker or counter pusher
Silence rapes morph pretty hard most of the time unless they go pure physical damage in which case all you really need is armor or heals to keep up with his gain.
Or you can just have a Necrolyte as a semi-carry and give him the farm to faceroll Morph all day, which is not hard considering how easy it is to predict a morphlings build based on early game items.

technically no, it doesn't fit their banning criteria unless they are shit talking while doing it

Currently, it's possible.
Riot's marketing team is certainly doing a better job.
Won't really know until Dota goes full release and is available to everyone if one emerges victorious.

Question is, why are you trying to harass with your only disable?
Harass with Nova, that way you slow both Drow and Axe.
If you catch Drow farther up than normal you get 2-3 regular attacks in on her as she backs up to safety, and if you see Axe move up towards you, he's slowed so you can back off easily.
Frostbite is all you have to stop someone so you really shouldn't be wasting it on harass unless its a solo lane opponent.
Either that or you worry about using frostbite on Axe if he stays in the creep wave long enough that all of his ally creeps die, and then you freeze him as the full wave of your creeps goes on him. You'll get 3-4 creeps hitting him for damage and your auto attacks.
You're a babysit for AM, really all you're there for is protection and creep pulling when the enemy lane is stronger.

My personal thoughts:
I can tell you right now I will only be using the grid view, there is nothing in the world that would make me want to sit there and scroll through that "trading card" style of pick screen and I don't see any reason why a new person would find it easier either. Rather than being able to mouse over and get details rapidly you'd have to stop on each hero and look.
Grid view is nice, but overall I think the rest of it is a waste of time.

community never killed it before, it won't kill it now
the existing population is big enough to support it without adding new people

A ranged hero with a AoE harass plus a regen / escape mech usually does well.
A few who come to mind are Lich, Mirana, Necrolyte and Dazzle.
I'm definitely no pro, so I'd wait for a few more suggestions.
Yeah Necro is a no-deal
His harass depends too much on getting in close enough to either get a heal on the enemy hero or stay close enough for aura and auto attacks to do the trick, either way, against any people of competent skill level, you'll get your ass handed to you every time you come into range.
You can stand back and do nothing and get maybe a creep every wave, but Necro really shouldn't be run solo v dual if it can be avoided
Underfarmed Necro is useless necro
Zapple's are all okay, cept maybe SF in a side lane, if they're smart they'll outpick that sidelane easy

You have a few games of playing well doesn't mean a whole lot in terms of averages
You're still in the realm of awfuls because of your average level of play.
That's how ELO works...

hm, never seen anything like this?
« on: May 01, 2012, 08:59:31 AM »
so its an ati card but that didnt answer my question, do you have any software for it running that lets you change settings specific to the card
« on: May 01, 2012, 02:23:51 AM »
Depends on your graphics card, do you have anything in your SysTray for nVidia or ATI?
« on: May 01, 2012, 01:23:40 AM »
assuming you're on a windows machine you can switch it with Windows Key + P
normally it's used for projectors but it should have 4 choices there total
otherwise youll have to check through the usual display options
and the same would be true for your graphics card software, whether it supports multidisplay at that resolution and if you need to change it
nvidia's software is pretty straightforward for multimonitor, idk about ATI

There are hotkeys for the shop...you can even set your own custom

Trying a standard VGA certainly wouldn't hurt for comparison, but in theory you aren't doing anything wrong.
The monitor, the laptop, and the graphics card all have their own native resolutions, but as you've stated you have other games that work just fine on the monitor.
I'm assuming you are having the monitor take the place of your laptop monitor, and not extending it as a secondary monitor
