Default Diretide 2013 discussion.


Ok as we all know, Diretide is on its way with some couple of changes a valve mentioned. But I think we could still discuss strategies involving the mode.

Broodmother seems to be broken in the new patch. Stealing candies would be too easy.

If ever they would release ember and koalin those two would be a good candy thief too.

Also, I hope valve fixes things like pudge stacking strength, echo slam and mass couriers, etc.

I was about to say Broodmother all the way :3 Also QoP and AM with Blink Daggers and Force Staves would be strong. Spectre to an extent with Dagger could be good.

But I still think the basic essence are still there. Like stealing candies. Which is the most enjoyable part. IMO.

Lol I got reported a bunch of times because of this. All I do is take candies from the basket, Wait for rosh fight then, proceed to dump all the candy in my enemys. then cull them.

Maximum griefing because they couldn't do anything about it.

I think the roshan part was kind of pointless, just dragged the game longer especially at the start where people didn't know stacking EBs and dagons worked to kill him quickly.

The 2nd part where Roshan chased people around was also kind of long, a full diretide game took at least 30 minutes. Hopefully this time they can find some way to make it shorter, diretide should not take as long as a full dota game.

If they make the games shorter, they have to kill the drop rate then.

Agree, on top of that i hate the last part, where both teams killed roshan...totally boring.

Let's just sit back and relax for now, I'm glad it's implemented nonetheless, a great alternative mode to fool around.
