  • Fountain Farming

    Id like to propose some serious changes on how the fountain works based on my experiences in one of my latest games
    id: 573752064
    After the enemy team won all lanes handily they went into our base without atacking a single tower and started farming kills at our fountain
    Thats not that unusual but they also bought items to do this indefinetely without ever dmging a single tower or rax
    So they proceeded to keep us hostages in this game for something like 15minutes before the creeps finally finished this game and released us from this.
    Fountain farmeing was never a thing i quite understood in terms of gamevalue and yes i did this myself from time to time but never to this extent and id not miss it if i could not do it anymore
    Why does the fountain not have truestrike or sth like that ? I could see no detriment for the game with a stronger fountain.

    fountain is not there to oneshot people. Even in pro games you will see people chasing and even diving a couple steps into the enemy fountain if that means they gonna get an important kill. On your case now, since they did not break a single t3 tower (based on what you saying), you could always grab a teleport and run to the woods with a smoke. Im quite sure though that if I watch the replay, your team was walking out and actually fighting in a hope of grabbing a kill or two.

      Like Valve's Eric Johnson explained in this article, things are like this becouse the winning team deserves to "have fun". If you didn't know, it's apparently great fun when you win the game and then proceed to keep the helpless enemies trapped in the fountain & game for another 15 minutes; it's even better when they make a thread like this afterward. ValveLogic FTW

        Id say anyone is entitled to his/her optinion but since u didnt even bother to watch the match i can hardly see any credibility to your post and no we were not able to even leave the fountain - slark was tanking fountain nonstop with heart +5x snake bracelet and as soon as any of us spawned we got instakilled by storm/timber

        And btw if i for example i was playing this game for the first time and this was my first match i would instantly uninstal this game and never touch it again and thereby never buy any cosmetics or other microtransactions. This form of fountainfarming serves no purpose whatsoever but griefing and does add nothing to the game but frustration and possible loss of customers

        Im not saying the fountain should instakill you its obvious that sometimes it might be important to snatch that low hp hero right as he steps into the fountain to secure the push - but tanking the fountain for up to minutes without dying is just ridiculous - adding truestrike to the fountain would not prevent the first case to happen, just the second one

          Play smart, if you know enemy has heroes that can dive your fountain or hook you (pudge), once your base gets destroyed, purchase a smoke or tp to the furthest building and hide somewhere far away in the trees. Too many threads on fountain farming on forums.
