  • Game wants me to pick Phantom Lancer everytime

    Usually the card-layout is supposed to initially jump to the hero that you picked in the last game.
    However, when you pick OD, then next game it always jumps to Phantom Lancer >
    Pretty annoying after a while.

    :/ Who cares? Most people don't pick the same hero every game, so it doesn't really matter. Surely picking OD every games gets old too?

    Even if you consider it's a bug it's not a gameplay bug. It'd be hero picker or something like that...

      It reduces the speed I can pick a hero with, so it enables other people to quickly pick him or random him before me, so it affects my gameplay.
      Also I'm feeling disadvantaged to Pirate (the guy who always picks Sand King), because this problem doesn't affect Sand King.
      Furthermore, I was unable to find a "hero picker bug reports subforum".

        It's not like pirate isn't leagues ahead of you... I think that you trying to relate to him, considering his skill and the versatility of his hero of choice compared to yours is being a bit too full of yourself.

          It's funny, because he played 2000 games with Sandking, and because Matchmaking matches me against him.
          I think I'm playing more versatile than him.

          Also, he told me in TS that he uses this technique to prevent anyone else from picking Sand King and he suggested me to do it as well. But I had to explain him, that it's not possible with OD due to this bug.

            Speed of picking? This is NOT a gameplay bug...
            If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.

              Explain why you should have an advantage in picking speed over other players.

              Also rofl, there's a huge difference between someone who mains a hero and only gets a ~50% winrate with it and someone who pulls a 60%+.

                Explain why I should have a DISADVANTAGE in picking speed over other players! Why would someone who always picks Sand King have an Advantage over someone who always picks OD?
                Fact is, this is a bug, either fix it, or remove this feature so everyone has equal chances to pick the hero he wants to.

                Oh someone who thinks abusing the MM, picking one of the easiest and most versatile heroes and then have a 60% winrate = skill.

                  When the average win rate of the "easiest and most versatile" hero is 50.20% and you have over 62% with it.... uhhh, yeah, it kind of is skill.

                    I know people who have over 90% winrate with Wisp. They must be extremely skilled then!

                      This is simply not a gameplay bug and THAT is a fact. If it behaves different to other heros, it is a bug, but it doesn't belong here and you know it and you ignore it just because it's OD.

                        If this is true then I agree it's a bug that should be fixed. I'm not sure why people are complaining that it's "unfair" because it works like that for every other hero.

                        However, I'm sure you know the post belongs here and will probably receive much better feedback as well http://dev.dota2.com/forumdisplay.php?f=358

                          I didn't think that you could report bugs there.
                          I might going to ask a mod to move it to there.
