    Whale ruined this game

    I mean compared to 3.0 4.0. I remember games when we switched to aos where we would have 15 kills at the end of the game (even in tournaments). That shap didn't happen in sotis.

    Obviously it's a matter of opinion but that's pretty much what the entire EU community had been saying for years. I think this game peaked in 4.0 when it was a very fast paced dota/lol hybrid with the small map and kill heavy lanes. Then we switched to 5.0 which had the retarded creep mechanics but wasn't too bad otherwise. What really killed this game for me was the switch to 6.0/aos where the game became pretty much a lol clone and completely boring. Individual skill stopped mattering, and finally the removal of tps and the jungle buff was the nail in the coffin, there was absolutely no counterplay to jungling with so little mobility and 3 lanes. And every game started to look like the next one, with kill lanes being nerfed so much that the first 20 min of the game were absolutely useless.

    Things that need to get changed in EU inhouse

    I haven't played in an extremely long time so maybe my experience isn't valid but I'll give my opinion anyway and you can decide for yourself if it's relevant. One of the reasons why I decided to switch to dota instead of aos is the extremely low level of coordination during inhouse games compared to dota. I'm not sure whether it's because of the geeneral level of play or if it's the consquence of people's attitudes. My personal analysis is that people forgot the importance of the captain role and how it translates into a game. I started playing in late 3.0 and got introduced to the inhouse community in early 4.0 and quickly became a regular player in those games. At the time the way games were played were different. The captains very simply the best players in the lobby, it was their responsibility to pick the players, pick the heroes and lead the team ingame. They had to pass their knowledge and educate the players. The ingame leading part and education part totally disappeared from the inhouse community last time I played and it made for extremely unenjoyable games, low skill and horrifying coordination. A clear example of this was a player that was first or second pick at the time in inhouse and was splitpushing with Jax when his team was taking fights. And he wasn't even flamed by the team. There's the problem : when I was playing teamfight heroes in 4.0, if the team was ready to take a fight then the captain would lead the team and make sure the proper heroes would be ready. This is strategic planning and proper coordination. Today's inhouse games are just pubs with slightly better players. The veterans need to step up and improve the quality of games. The reason why inhouse games aren't played so much is because they offer very little compared to pubs, apart from some form of matchmaking. I encourage anyone to watch the vods from old tournaments if you can find them (2009 to 2012), you can see that good teams move together and obviously communicate much more than what I experienced in inhouses. edit : I realize this sounds harsch but it is my honest opinion, I think this is up to the inhouse regulars; there's a reason why the best players are often very good in-game leaders (an example of this would be starz, who was average-good in terms of skill but a fantastic leader), it's because communication is extremely important in mobas and it has been somewhat forgotten by aos players in my mind

    help guz is braindead moron!

    What the flob did you just flobing say about me, you little boii? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the flob out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my flobing words. You think you can get away with saying that shap to me over the Internet? Think again, flober. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re flobing dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shap. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your flobing tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shap fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re flobing dead, kiddo.

    So..I want to use the beta map for tourney.

    What do you mean hate ? He asked a question and people answered, I don't see any hate in there. All I see is people explaining that it seems a bit silly to play a tournament on a version that hasn't been played much and still has a few bugs. Quid and you made it into an EU/NA hate thing, not anyone else. Also afaik the Russians organized several tournaments this year, so get your facts straight.

    Well this is exactly what I meant, there are 3 guys that want to play the beat and don't explain why, then you have about the same number of guys who make a detailed explanation about why they don't want the beta with rational arguments. If that thread doesn't change your mind you weren't going to change your mind anyway, so I am a bit confuse as to why you made it.

    Which brings me to my point : why did you make this thread ?

    I'm not stirring the pot, it's your tournament do whatever you want anyway but it's funny that you ask for feedback, the only constructive posts are against using the beta map and you disregard them completely. So one might ask himself why you made this thread in the first place ? edit : I mean your argument for using the beta map is that you start the tournament earlier ??????????????

    - Hey guys, I want to use the beta map for the tournament what do you think ? - Meh, we don't really want to for the following reasons (insert lamedude's post). - Whatever flob you all I'll use the beta map anyway.
