    Changelog v2.13-2.17

    Yes, now there is more similarity. They both involve jumping in a target direction, latching on to the first hero hit, and CC'ing them while dealing damage + On hit effects. As Mother said, the effect once you hit is different in that it's a root and that it temporarily buffs other aspects of his kit

    Changelog v2.11

    Lol, basically yeah.

    Changelog v2.11

    I found the problem. Cauterizer is broken and results in people getting insane amounts of bonus healing from it instead of reducing. So just encourage your teammates not to buy it, until this is patched.

    Zoom out?

    If heroes are half your screen size, then there's something pretty funky going on with your computer. Either way, some time ago the game used to allow you to zoom out a little further. I wouldn't mind adding another zoom level or two

    Why I do not play aos anymore

    How so? Reasonable. You think wards are too important due to the current number of cliffs and bushes. I welcome criticism. I tend to be quite critical myself. I can agree that I preferred the vibrancy and lack of terrain consistency found in previous maps.

    Why I do not play aos anymore

    What is the downside to having more jungle camps? I would argue that creeps were too weak before. But I'm willing to change my mind. I like the ability to make plays using bushes. What don't you like about having many bushes? What makes having many ramps frustrating?

    Interestingly enough, people also say it's a lol clone.

    Fc dat sht dat important and i know da wae

    How exactly did you think devs worked? Did you think we constantly tried every hero and item combination just to find bugs or that we played the game to have fun?
