  • Creep blocking

    An essential part of meta-game, creep blocking isn't nearly as effective in Dota 2 as it was in WC3 Dota. Although some of the mechanics remain, it seems that creep blocking is less feasible in Dota 2. It's an important tactic used for lane control, and it would be disappointing not to see any changes to it.

    Here is why creep blocking is so important.

    That YouTube video is almost 2 hours long... Did you expect me to watch the whole thing? Do you have a time stamp?

          I can creep block in Dota2... if you can't you need to practice it.

            I have played Dota 1 WC3 for 3 years and Dota 2 for 6 months.

            Creep blocking is nearly exactly the same in both of them. I have no issues.

            I am able to creep block effectively in Dota 2, so Im not sure what Original Poster is trying to prove or imply, or if there is any difference or bug.
            He's the hero this community deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt his identity, because he can take it, because he's not our hero. He's a silent buffer, a watchful nerfer. An IceFrog.

              I can too. Creep block the same like in dota1. You need practice.

                Moved to Brainstorming.

                Personally, I've found no issues.
                Always read and follow the forum rules. If you need help from a moderator, use the report button ()
                Before posting new bugs:
                -Check the Known Bugs List and search the forum for an existing report.
                -Make sure its a bug (test in WC3 Dota, visit playdota guides and adv. mech, etc). If you're still not sure, post in Mechanics and Gameplay Bug Brainstorming instead.
                -Read the Bug Posting Guidelines on how to report a bug properly.

                  It's different, but it's not worse. In fact I feel it's much easier for dire now.
