    Totally absurd.

    Suppose you don't have the arcana. The best strategy would be to insta-lock PA and feed in the event, to get into the actual game quickly.

    Suppose you do have the arcana and the PA insta-locks on the other team, the best strategy is to pick to counter her, then throw the actual match for a fast finish to maximise hat farming.

    The actual event is really messed up, but this idea is even worse.

    To avoid LPQ:

    Don't draw attention to yourself
    Don't use voice or chat except for 'ss'
    Mute all at lvl 1
    Only play in parties
    Get alternate accounts
    Limit your usage to one or two games per day per account
    Don't play too well
    Don't play on Sunday or Monday
    Wait until the developers reset LPQ status

    If you're getting matched with trolls or feeders:

    You may have been placed in a hidden pool. There is no known way out of this, apart from moving to a different account.

          Good news for ranked players. Good news for item farmers. Bad news for everyone else.

          One obvious exploit: item farmers will abandon and/or throw for a fast finish if they don't get a contract in their match or don't win the contract.

          The FAQ specifies that LPQ matches are eligible for rewards.

          Arcana pre-orderers will be unhappy about the eligibility change.

            All these greedy companies milk their game for all its worth before letting it die when they notice its decreasing in popularity. I guess finally their shitty act caught up with them. Advertising in game with no option to close it is the sad beginning of the end.

                I think it's safe to nerf pa. She has an arcana and a crap ton of people will play her for the arcana. According to dotabuff, she's the second most popular hero after pudge. Nerf her to shit and bring balance back since you already have your hat money and people will play her regardless of how useless she is.

                      Pudge isn't broken though. And he requires some amount of skill and prediction. PA has been broken ever since void got nerfed.

                      50% evasion.. seriously?

                          PA is terribly weak. Barely picked for pro play as she works solely on RNG and is easily countered with a MKB or blademail.
                          She's only popular because she's easy to play, 2 passives and all.

                          I'm seeing way to many threads saying nerf PA since this update...

                          Goodbye. Good to see some of the Giff diretide/ruin Dota 2's metacritic unthinking filth leaving the game.

                            She became popular. People are too dumb to build an mkb or zone her early. They let her get fed, and then she one-shots tanks.

                              Horrible event. Give us something like wraith night or new bloom (and learn from previous mistakes), don't completely mess up the game like this. PA-s in every game, leavers after contract is failed, kill rushing, the necessity to buy the arcana to be sure to take part in the event... It goes on and on.. A separate mini-game is both refreshing, fun and does not interfere with the actual Dota game.

                                WE SPENT HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS FOR PREVIOUS ARCANAS!
                                NOW YOU MADE THIS EVENT FOR OTHERS TO EASILY GET ARCANAS BY CHANCES?
