Trolling isn't new to me. Raging isn't either, especially in this genre. However, this is a new one on me. There is a champion called "Keeper of Light" that has the following ability: Recall - "After a short delay, teleports the targeted friendly hero to your location. If the targeted friendly hero takes player based damage during this time, the ability is interrupted." I had a guy sit in the base the entire game, and do nothing but cast this spell on us. Pulling us back to the base over and over again, and laughing at us the entire time over the built in voice chat.
I don't recall LoL having these types of abilities? Where someone could abuse it, and effectively halt my ability to play the game. This genre is, of course, a hotbed for ragers and griefers. Most people know that. In LoL, people usually would just grief by going afk, or leaving the game, but despite all that, I could still play. But here, DotA 2 is adding yet ANOTHER thing people can do to grief you, and in my opinion, this one takes the cake as it actually interrupts, or completely halts my ability to play the game.
There any way to counter this? Is there an option I can turn on to make it so another player can't effect me in this way? Maybe I'm missing something... All I know is I had a 30 minute long game where I could barely play at all. I can't leave (because then that would be marked against me). Sure, I could report the guy, but that barely matters. You report one guy, get him banned, and 3 more like him spring up in his place. So I had to just sit through the game, and take it...
I dunno, I'm kinda venting right now, but it was just extremely irritating, and from what I can tell there are lots of abilities like this in DotA 2. Ones that other players can cast on you, and effect you in some way. So no telling how many other ways there are to grief like this one. :(
