    *sigh* I really like Heroes of the Storm but the lag is quite bad so now I have to shift to League of Legends, since that’s slightly less toxic than Dota 2. On the other hand, Warcraft III Reforged! Woohoo!

    @dragovorn the issue is that you're playing dota

    If Persona 5 comes out on Switch I'm actually going to be upset instead of happy, I've already bought it on PS4 and its been on my "to play list". Issue is I can't find the time to go downstairs and actually play it, if I had it on Switch I'd be playing it between Dota queues.

    @Cnut_real Missed this! They do seem to help a little, but I don’t think they do much to address the underlying issues in dota, which is that dota needs real governance but valve is not incentivized to provide it.

    @thenaughtysquid tbh I think the issue was always gonna be that its a paid game. It's such a hard sell! Should have given it to, say Dota Plus subs for free or something to start

    Shame I can no longer play @DOTA2 after 5 years playing the game just because of what seems to be a unfixable bug. Gone as far as formatting my computer and it still refuses to not crash after 5 minutes. Well it has been a fun one...

  • Slasher
    Rod Breslau (@Slasher) reported

    @RalfReichert @mbCARMAC Over saturation and too much content definitely isn't as big of a problem as other issues in the industry - like an entire game's esport dying due to lack of revenue or viewership - but it's still there. Valve's reigning in the Dota 2 circuit has helped that ecosystem.

    @Liam_HotS @endemicesports u used 8-10h into a game that was already having rly low views and players instead of focusing on games like LoL or dota 2, i mean theres none to blame besides u be happy ur dream got crushed early enogh for u to fix ur life

    @ChefEff @Discord @EpicGames Consumers have choices aside from Facebook and Apple. And I think Apple has issues for sure. But Steam has had a monopoly and on top of that, Valve ******* crowdfunds its Dota2 prize pool RIDICULOUS. It profits from other people's work. It generates markets to exploit. It's awful

    @runforestrun23 @Grummz They didn't get the IP, they got the Devs/community members who made the original DOTA. Dota2 is called just "DOTA2" It's NOT called "Defense of the Ancients 2" That's to avoid the IP issues

    @panick1n @Thooorin That's not exactly true, Originally it tried to address most of the problems the games like LoL and Dota 2 have. It tried removing the obnoxious lasthit mechanic for example (which resulted in the game becoming super dull and laning phase no existing) (1/2)

    @DOTA2 @dota2updates @dota2reddit @Cyborgmatt okay so, when you use slark and there's an enemy arc warden's illusion (ult) dies near you (after you hit the illusion once or more), you get 1 permanent agi, even if the illusion's duration is over, you still will get 1 perma agi FIX

    @Maxyusc @StarCraft @LeagueOfLegends @DOTA2 That was definitely an issue, yeah. HotS had great potential to AT LEAST challenge LoL/Dota (probably not overtake though), and Im trying my best not to be biased there. But they've ****** over their pros time after time, and have let some dubious things happen in the scene (1/2)

    Its same problem with Microsoft closing down Age of Empires Online. Closing down a good fun game over shitty mobile phone games... Why can't we have games last forever. Its not fair that Dota 2 and League of Legends continues on while Heroes of the Storm doesn't....

    @GraydonIIIVO @PlayArtifact Money isn't an issue, the issue is the current business model is hampering a great game We're what we call whales in Valve's most successful game called #DOTA2. (Over 15,000 USD on Dota 2 alone) There's no need to emulate Hearthstone's grind when the Dota 2 model exists.

    as heroes is now dead--its great that no one on their design team ever actually spent any amount of time playing dota, so they had the experience of dealing with problems that dota had already solved 6+ years prior it was like watching a train wreck in slow motion

    @runycat I alway found HOTS to be the least toxic of the MOBAs. In my literal first match against real opponents in DOTA, a team mate told me to kill myself because I picked the wrong starting items. DOTA and LoL have some major community problems.

  • TheWonderCow
    Ryan 'Gorgon' Jurado (@TheWonderCow) reported

    My biggest issue with Artifact is that there's no compelling casual-competitive experience. Either you pay WHENEVER you want to play competitive or you play long, meaningless, no-stakes wastes of time. In this way, it fees as contrary to the Dota experience as is possible.

    My relationship with Dota is a complicated one. I enjoy watching its esports, and like playing it occasionally (nearly all ability draft) and hate playing it the rest of the time. This disconnect stops me from ever treating it with the attention I had previously given DG. :x

    @Purificationone in my opinion , fight fire with fire just make all the champions equally broken that would be a real balance instead of trying to get the same champions on the same Level of power , that is what Dota2 have done basically

    @Loving_Angel77 @Slasher @Cylints i agree with you. one of the underlying problems is the insane negative consequences there are for leaving a game sometimes. like, in some of the more popular games that i love you get perma banned for leaving too many games *cough* LoL *cough* DotA. it is stupid.
