bug related to new update

by technophyleboi. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

so the new update dropped which made some Dota plus features free, but for some reason levels aren't working neither am I getting the voice lines for level 1 even though it says I'm level 1 and I can't progress past level 1 since after each match it resets my level and then increases it again based on how I performed in the match meaning i can never go past level 1

DotA 2 the game where it's literally impossible to fight without BKB/when it's on cooldown

by qStormz. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

idk i came back into the game after 2 years break and i can literally die from 3k hp to zero hp in immortal bracket, without people blowing a single big cooldown because of how stupid new heros crowd controls/damage are

in late game i don't even understand whats going on and it's 10x worse, i can literally die as a pos1 to a pos5 AA's ice blast + spirit vessel

give carries items for magic resist or something, supports scale better than real carries in late game and i dont think that should be a thing

Don't get got for non native english speakers

by Mokelelasi. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

I was happy to see that SUSD is having a Kickstarter for new set for Don't get got. I was about to pledge on one game but then started to think: Is it worth it for players that are all non native english speakers. Are there lot of missions where you have to use english in order for the mission to go through (in the original game)? At least the mission that is common for all the players is annoyingly one of those.

Resident Evil 7 problem

by trevor1973. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

I’m really enjoying the game. I have done everything but when I tried to leave the house I had no ox statuette. I know I got one earlier in the game. So annoying. It was after the garage fight. I really don’t feel like putting in all that time again :) sickening

Happened to anyone else ? A solution ?

i don't know what to do

by TeleC1assy. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

i want to start this post just by first sharing with how frustrated i am to have to deal with this problem. i accept up front the fact that this issue i'm having is entirely my fault, and was entirely preventable from the very first time i played dota. i am pretty confident in my abilities but it has become such a prominent issue for me that i can't really enjoy the game like i used to.

when i first started playing, simply because i was left handed and it was more comfortable for me, i remapped my hotkeys to be centric to my numpad and the keys around it. my courier hotkeys, abilities, items, unit selection and scrolling, and map controls are all on the arrow keys, numpad, and the six keys above the arrow keys. this is hardwired into my brain at this point - i've tried many times to use normal or alternate hot key layouts and have never succeeded because of how different it is. i just tried again and feel utterly hopeless.

the problem now is that, since this last compendium update, valve has configured the inputs of my hotkeys to change based on the state of the numpad differently from previous updates. what i used to have to do every year is remap both states of my numpad in the console to my desired hotkey layout, and now with this recent update, rather than the keys registering as two different states of the numpad, each active/inactive state registers as either a numpad key or a normal keyboard input. this wouldn't be a big deal if the alternate states for all but the 5 key didn't register as normal inputs that i already use, effectively cutting my total hotkeys in half based on the state of my numpad. i use the numlock key as my stop key, which gets used often, so the state toggles often - i've used macros to double tap the numlock every time i use it, and this is where the problems start.

often in game when i would use my stop key, i would begin to experience an input delay with ANY input, from the mouse or keyboard. this is problematic for many heroes, but most notably the most complex heroes who require constant diverse inputs. i believe what is happening is an anti cheat mechanism is preventing multiple inputs from being spammed in a short amount of time, and because i'm double tapping my stop key every time i press it, the server thinks i'm using a script to issue commands faster than humanly possible. the best example of this is when i play invoker and am cycling orbs to invoke spells while simultaneously trying to last hit or block creeps. when i issue stop commands or move commands while doing so, the game will simply not respond to certain inputs.

originally i just tried using less inputs, but this does not work when many inputs are required in a short amount of time. i find the game very hard to play in this state and am really seeking a solution to the problem. i know some people might say "just try normal hotkeys" or something along those lines, but i've logged so many hours with this configuration that i find it nearly impossible. i want to exhaust all possible options before resorting to this. i fear relearning the game because i've felt so much progress in my gameplay over just the last few months, despite this handicap, and it would be a massive waste of my time and passion to have to revert so far back as to learning how to use hotkeys again.

if anyone has any ideas, please help me work around this problem. i've messaged both steam support and sent feedback to the dota feedback thingie and neither have been helpful. i don't know what else to do.

just to put it out there, the issue has nothing to do with my internet or software on my pc. i've tried on multiple pcs, accounts, and hardware configurations, and it always happens eventually.

PS5 will make PC games more optimized for NVMe m.2 high speeds?

by jump_in_the_caac. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

The Nvme m.2 port has a higher read speed than conventional SATA SSDs. If you by a m.2 that has a speed higher than a SSD you will notice this just during the transference of files and things like that, games are not optmimized to that speed, is not hard to find m.2 SSDs that are 5x faster than a SATA SSD but the loading times are generally just a tinny little fast, when it's not the same. The PS5 has a NVMe on it that seems to have 5Gb/s reading speed. Now that technology has come to consoles, do you guys think that this kind of SSD will become a lot better on games?

Have a great day!

Xbox Resolution/performance database

by joe298. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

Does anyone know of a service where you can see a list of games alongside their resolution/frames per second, and also where you can see whether they have been patched for next gen consoles? Been looking for a good resource but there doesn't seem to be anything obvious. Would be useful for series x launch if you could see an up to date list of games which will be performance boosts.

Yesterday, I played the worst game of my life and no one flame me, and we ended it up winning. WTF just happened!!

by ace-s. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

I have 10k behavior score and people still flame each other for no reason what so ever.

I was having a rough personal day and wanted to play 1 game before sleep. I was already mentally fucked and depressed before the game even started

The opponent last picked pudge mid and we were all confident that game is in the bag. I was dominating the lane for the first 2 waves and I guessed where his ward was and I ferried in a sentry. When I went to deward, he hooked me and I died. (I was out of focus from the start)

I apologized and laughed it off on the mic so people dont start flaming but I died 5 more times in a row. My face was red, my mind was blank and my horrible day became even worse.

Probably my worst game in my life but no body flamed me and we ended up winning the game. I went 0-10 to 7-11 by the end.

I was expecting people pinging my levels, items, flaming me on chat, flaming on mic...etc. but the opposite happened. They were 100% focused on winning the game.

Immortal 6,3k free coaching on live stream again!

by jvbernardyc. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

Hello guys. I have posted like two or three weeks ago about my project of free coaching people while live streamming on twitch. Today I will be live again (as I am doing almost all days) and anyone is welcome there, even people who don't wanna get coached and just wanna watch some chilling immortal 6,3k Dota gameplays (with didactics and also some feeds by me) or even chat a bit!

We are actually building a very interesting learning community there, a lot of people are frequently coming with replays for analysis while also participating and contributing in other people analysis. I’ve been getting really good feedback from people there saying they are actually improving a lot their gameplays.

So, just grab a snack, a drink, a replay and come chill while also discussing a bit about dota!




by Squ1gly. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

I just got one! They are spacing them out every few minutes but go get one!!

Update: I guess the series x is gone. That was quick!

Update Update: Now it shows the X as available for preorder. It looks like they are adding inventory slowly.

Sometimes (about 10% of games) I can't use skills fast / can't move

by EnergyGood. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

Usually everything is good, but once in like 10 games it just happens so I can't use skills fast one after other. What happens is if I'm trying to use many skills at the same time, character just stops processing any commands it receives, like I'm being rate limited. It's not even any complicated combos, just for example using item, skill and click on the ground withing one second is enough to cause problem. At this time also ping doesn't increases, packet loss stays at 0 too. Also I can see what other characters do without any lag or anything. What is it and how to fix it?

What's wrong with Lina and a possible rework

by nikcek. Posted on Oct 24, 2020

I guess it's not only me, but Lina doesn't feel good at all right now.

Despite her Q and W are multi target, at the end of the day you using them on a single target only, her E is probably her best ability, and her ulti does too little, late game you can't take away 50% hp from a support.

To land a stun you have to waste Eul and do a difficult combo when others can do the same sipping water, and you have Eul on CD instead of protecting yourself with it.

Compared to skywrath or lion, they both start single target to end multi target through talents and Agh, Lina? Why can't she too?

IMO there should be changes like

-Q is 2 times larger

-W has a larger area and/or less delay so you don't need Eul

-E should grant damage or become an aura for allies too

-R needs a damage buff or CD and mana reduction

All this can go straight away or through talents/agh. I don't think they wuold make her OP, just more enjoyable to play and having an impact because now I cannot feel that, she's boring and weak
