Pretty much every moba is a game of throws. Unless you are part of some crazy crack team of experts at the game.

I always want to play some Dota. Which is why I hate you, Brad. You did this to me. You!

And yes, the lore is in a book on the training page, although I think it might all be unlocked from the start. But you do get a "common" set of gear for Sniper for completing all of the training. HATS!

Brad, we can read your chat. Don't lie to us or your stream friends about couriers or whatnot. C'mon man.

I'm not sure, but shouldn't you actually describe what the player did wrong when you report him?

Or is the only thing that matters the amount of reports?

Magic carpet does make him the best courier ever, no doubt.

Man, that first game

Brad didn't pop his healing ward once. That was incredibly frustrating.

I don't think you can sell anything above £260 ($400).

@uber_skedy: You can probably find Brad's account in the Giant Bomb group on Steam and spectate from there.

My one game with elder titan looked just as painful as this one. I get that he can be good, but he is not the type of hero I like to play.

That Elder Titan play could have been a lot tighter. You need to hang back, throw the spirit where it will catch the most people (luckily it has a really long cast range), and stomp as soon as the spirit is deployed; don't give them any time to react (unless someone else can zone them into its range). If you catch them, you need to ult right away too. Elder Titan has a decent debuff aura, but his basic reason for existence is that 3-step combo.

If used correctly, just the threat of it can deter enemy pushes for a long time, and punish them badly if they try to execute one. All this makes Elder Titan is one of the best anti-pushers in the game, but you need to stay alive first.

The spirit should also be spammed a lot during the early laning phase, not to stun anybody, but just to walk it through enemy heroes and creep waves, which can be pretty effective as harassment (it will damage units it passes through).
