Daily Dota 5/30/2013 -- Why the Kunkka blame?

#1 Posted by Avaren (61 posts) -

I made this video to showcase some Dota-level blamery that occurred today.

I hope it can be avoided in the future.

This doesn't seem like a big deal at all.

First boat actually only hit Panda and Pugna (torrent hit the other two; Weaver dodged both). What they were complaining about is the fact that they didn't initiate with the boat; it came out after they had already been jumped. Second boat was a good boat and they labeled it as such.

No he is actually right. You use the boat to start the fights rather then once the fight is already starting. Which is why Knukka is one of the harder heros to play, the boat can be amazing...it just requires precision and foresight. Plus saying "We need a boat" is pretty polite. They could have freaked out on Knukka and called him all sorts of names / told him to uninstall...etc the standard insults. That second boat though shows how great a pretty much perfect one is, which he was complimented for.

I find it pretty funny you felt the need to make a video but anyway. @ajamafalous and @indiefinch have pretty much summed up my thoughts, I think it's fair to say we all played poorly in that match.

Brads team could have initiated across the river if they knew that the panda wasn't an illusion which they didn't, they also didn't communicate in any way to kunkka that they wanted him to initiate. Even with perfect positioning and precognition Kunkka could not have offset the radiants terrible positioning, limited vision and poor farm once the fight started.

Whining on the Daily Dota is probably it's biggest problem, especially when the game isn't going their way. I know it's easy to blame other people during a game.

Have you ever actually played Dota? "Need a boat to start things off" is advice, not blaming and especially not Dota-level blaming.
