Got a very strange bug.

When searching for games I get the screen pop-up with the Dota graphic, but I don't get the dialogue box which asks you if you would like to accept or decline to join the game. I am stuck with the Dota 2 graphic for about 30 seconds with just the 'Leave game' button below it. Finally I am thrown back to the searching for game screen and the whole process starts all over again. This leaves me unable to join any games. Does anyone know what might be going on?

Loving DOTA so much. I'm getting a nice mix between the higher ranked matches and lower. Generally, when I'm playing with two or three friends we're in the top ranks due to every boosting me but when there's two of us it seems we get entered into the low bracket and there's one guy I play with where we just go Venge and Luna. We end up dominating the early game, get some really good kills and an early tower, then from there it's easy. Just ended my recent game 10/3/19 with Venge and got 4 kills in a row on my own at the end. 23 minute match.

Love the auras so much.

Apart from that I've not really explored any new characters. Still playing Venge, Lich with a tiny bit of Nightstalker in there. Really have to play carry sometime. I'm kinda ignoring them for now cause I don't really like having to get last hits. Too much reliance on me playing good when I'm better at supports.

Fun times.

You can join me anytime if you like playing support, as long as you ward. :) I'm getting sick of playing games with supports how just go out for the kills and never bother to ward. You are at such an advantage in public games if you can see what the other team is doing.

Is your Steam name Scrappy?

That's the one :)

Warding IMO is such a game changer. You can be the best at getting last hits and kills, but without a good ward you're at a disadvantage. Warding has won so many games for us purely based on the fact we can see runes, people coming through the river and the opponents jungle. Always carry wards with me when I can.

Yeah and it sucks when you are a carry and have to waste money on wards, oh and the courier.

Yep.

Just played Drow and had to buy the courier AND wards. THEN got blamed for being a noob for complaining that the Venge in my lane was pushing, didn't buy courier and wards.

I fucking hate lower ranked matches.

Big changes in those patch notes; an extra rune, tower glyph cooldown changing as well as the Rosh move. They have also buffed some of the jungle creeps eVol which will help Enchantress as well.
