  • Magnus ulty need to be changed, FAST!!! + few other things

    ulty from magnus look weak and dont represent the magnus that i remember from wc3 dota games, big, scary and powerful that can melt enemies in a sec, weapon could be better, and his back just looks too simply ... this magnus just aint what he should be... im disappointed big time, all excitement gone in a sec

    no hard feelings valve

    i dont agree. the ulti in dota2 is way better than its counterpart in dota1. basically it is a war stomp in dota 1(exactly the same as centuar's hoof stomp)

      yes, in dota 1 the slam effect and the overall ulti animation looks better in combination.. the hero animation fits perfectly (he holds his spear with both hands, the spearhead points to the sky and he simply raises his spear a little bit up and while doing that everybody gets teleported infront of him)

      in dota 2 it looks like he is just slamming the ground with an explosion.
      there is a little effect which represents the sucking effect but it's not enough and it doesn't fit, since he actually doesn't suck them he teleports them infront of himself.
      and there is no camera shaking for such a strong ultimate

      rest is fine ^^ i looove his skewer and shockwave animation

      EDIT:magnus ulti.jpg

        Maybe it's just your nostalgia speaking? I never played the original Dota, so I don't see anything wrong at all with the implementation in Dota 2. I went and looked at some videos of Magnus in WC3 Dota and to me honestly that Ult looks underwhelming, not this one.

          It is quite lackluster, but still way better than in Warcraft 3.

            update 1 ulti is better than update 2 that with 0.4 sec pull time, total 0.4 + 4 = 4.4 sec
            But now change back to original instant stun.

              Only thing I dont get, and this isnt really a dota2 thing but more of a dota thing, it dosnt explain in his lore how he seems to control like gravity/polarity or whatever o.o

                I can't fathom how can one think that anything from WC3 looks better than its DOTA 2 counterpart, those graphics are 12 years old and the effects plain suck - if you look at the from today's perspective. If you wanna put up a realistic argument then just talk about what you think can be improved in the DOTA 2 animation, which I personally think is fine. If anything it can be improved by making it more 'slammy' with dust particles on the ground like Echoslam.

                  Doesn't matter if the graphics are 12 years old, and just for the sake of the fact, they are 9 years old since warcraft 3 was released in 2003.
                  And YES, the ulti in original dota was SO MUCH BETTER than the one in dota 2, just because the graphics are better, doesn't mean what they do with it is better, go play warcraft dota and feel your ulti when you do it, now you don't understand what happens, the ulti is so lame, a blue wave and poof, someone is stunned, how the hell does that happen. He should slam his enemies or something, they could have done something awesome with his ulti, instead it is such a fail, graphically speaking.

                      exactly, i dont say that graphic are better in dota 1 i say the ulty effect is more powerful there, this ulty on magnus i dont know, its like keeper of the light spell with... not like some strength hero which have one of the best ulty in the game,

                        People who prefer the visual effects of WC3 DotA are like people who have a pixelated porn fetish because of their 56k modems.

                        WC3 DotA Magnus ultimate effect looks like shit, deal with it.

                        If you think the Dota 2 effect could be better, then tell us how (remember that the skill is called "reverse polarity", not "herp derp stompy stomp").

                          The only problem with Magnus's ult, for me, is the sound, it just doesn't sound badass enough, in dota1 it's like DOOOMMPPP, here it's too SLWEEESHEEEE, not nearly as manly :-|

                              That's besides the point
