  • The fountain is not safe if you're losing

    The fountain: A safe haven for healing and mana regeneration, or a feeding ground for the enemy team?
    I think it's more like the latter. Every game where I end up on the losing side, the enemy team camps my fountain and kills my team over and over again with no intention of finishing the game.

    Here's the latest example of the enemy team camping and ALMOST GETTING MEMBERS OF MY TEAM ABANDONS because we couldn't even leave the fountain and get XP:
    Match ID 53575743

    Watch the end of this match. Drow (who is ridiculously overpowered thanks to the latest update) camps the fountain for over 5 minutes racking up kills with no intention of attacking the fountain. It's ridiculous that this is even possible. WHY is this possible? Campers ruin every game that I lose.

    I'm begging you developers, I'm pleading for you to either increase the range of the fountain's attacks far enough that not even Sniper can reach anyone, or make heroes invulnerable when inside the fountain to prevent the enemy team spoiling our games with bad sportsmanship and greed.

    You're just a bad player.
    If you can't defend your own fountain, just uninstall the game.
    Besides this, the fountain is NOT a safe heaven for healing and mana regeneration.
    Spawn killing is what you deserve for poor play.

      No need to try and troll me. Your hostility tells me you're a spawn camper yourself. It's not a pleasant experience to the victims. I'd like to be able to leave the spawn without getting killed almost instantly by much higher leveled, greedy players.

        I agree with OP. The fountain range should be increased (more than Sniper) taking care that enemy is still able to buy items at enemy shop.

          You cant make fountian a "safe place"... I remember lots of situations where game wasn't over, getting crucial kills inside enemy fountian.. and also losing equal games, getting sniped while running into fountian.
          What about AA's ultimate, Sunstrike etc. often you search for kills in enemy fountian.

          Sell your items, and buy a blinkdagger/forcestaff and go to safety, if they start fountian farming you.

          It is a fun part of the game, dont be a cry baby!.. Sometimes its even fun beeing in the fountian, forcestaffing/hooking enemies into the fountian, or trying to juke/stun them when they dive. I enjoy fountian battles.

              I agree with the OP regarding the fountain camping.
              But then again the game was 100% lost for your team when:
              -your team doesn't buy a courier
              -you (clinkz) had 5 creeps after 10 min in a 2v1 lane... trax getting 35 last hits and 12 denies against you and pudge in the same period (and he is bad at last hitting)
              -you don't know to last hit and keep auto attacking.. you don't know how to skill your spells
              -trax won a 2v1 lane killing your teammates in 9 minutes (yes you fed her in the first place)
              -your invoker was premade with a friend having 50 wins in a 400+ wins average game... and feeds
              -you are afk in the fountain long time before they start fountain farming

                -your invoker was premade with a friend having 50 wins in a 400+ wins average game... and feeds
                XD Awesome

                To OP:

                Play 50 games more and you will understand the game better, watch youtube videos and occasionally you will understand that your thread is senseless
