  • Is scripts for meepo playing allowed?

    I wanted to ask this because I see people using scripts for meepo playing which I think it's completely unfair if everyone has to go through a trying setup just for meepo play. Manually playing poofing them all at once is impossible but only with script it's possible which is pretty damn good and unfair

    It's not allowed at LANs - only there can anyone prove script use and enforce the rule. Online, you customise and automate your keys however you want and as much as your conscience lets you

          As far as it's undetectable, you shouldn't ask.

            It's hardly impossible you just have to do it intelligently, and I'm talking about poofing 4 meepo's onto your main and then blinking and having them all land as your main meepo lands his blink

            It's not that hard and takes about 5 minutes of practice

              I am not talking about select second meepo, hit poof, hit tab, 3rd meepo hit poof hit tab, then blink main meepo... etc. I am talking about a script that allows you to give one number to your other 4 meepos and by selecting them all together you can poof all of them at once by using poof skill once, think of it as using poof on all meepos simultaneously. I've seen people doing it and it's obviously scripting and shouldn't be allowed.

                It's impossible to detect it. Because even if you'd make an AntiScript system that, for example, would detect if a meepo always poofs with the same timming, there is a way to avoid it. Just make a random sleeping from 0 to 100 ms and done, avoided.

                So it's not so obvious. Well, some people with a neutral script would be obvious, but if someone wanna use it, he will do because avoiding anti-scripting is easy.

                  its not an unfair advantage. AT ALL. ANYONE can go online and get the meepo script and macro it. You dont even need gaming keyboards/mice for that. there is no unfair advantage. Its just like saying, reading a guide to a hero gets u unfair advantage because others havent read that guide.

                  FIX MMR POINTS TO BE AWARDED FOR INDIVUDUAL PERFORMANCE RATHER THAN WHOLE TEAM SHARING THE FATE FOR THE FEEDER AND VICE VERSA. SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE +VE MMR POINTS EVEN AFTER A LOSS IF YOU DID REALLY WELL.
                  ADD THE SURRENDER BUTTON SO THE CRUSHED TEAM DOES NOT WASTE >10 MINS AFK AT FOUNTAIN
                  ADD SIZE CUSTOMIZATION FOR THE HUD.

                    You can never understand if its obvious or not.I have a friend who i'm sure he can challenge n0tails meepo.Sometimes you see meepo landing one after another and sometimes they all appear at once.He is using the old fashion way tab/poof/click/tab/poof/click/dagger/click in all 4 meepos and yet somehow he can land em all at once.It just need training.But remember.Sometimes they will land one by one with like 0.4 secs in-between and sometimes they will land instant together.Dunno why this happens but he aint using any script at all.

                      It's easier then what I said but the outcome is97% the same....and as stated since anyone can do it it's no advantage, people do the same thing for invoker

                        cheating isn't unfair guys. if everyone can cheat then it's legit.

                        next up, map hacks. make sure everyone gets one. it won't ruin the game.

                          Yes, it's illegal. But no one's gonna try to detect it in pubs, so it will continue, like invoker scripts.

                            Anyone can get cheats. So it's not unfair.

                            Just because something is obtainable to everyone doesn't mean it should be allowed.
                            Personally I think anything that makes stuff "automated" in dota2 should be considered cheating and thus not allowed, like this script.

                              Judging by the length of your post, you're not trolling, in which case you're just simply retarded
