That's the point every pro-DotA thread contain. But global strategies are always shifting, with remakes and trend changes. And having strategy mirror every game... Well, it's common for dota, but breaking this tendency is nearly impossible.
At least, you can enjoy innovations every time metagame/trend shifts. It's less boring than playing a game for 5 years or more to see same things over and over again, even if it involves more strategies. Watch some old RTS games if you want an example.
And, after all, you always can play some CM pubs or not-so-serious inhouses trying something new just for fun.
Competetive games vs fun games are just like real warfare vs action movies - they are about different things.
BTW, a rare sight of a trilane raped by soloer really worth all described "boredom".
