    No one cares what reddit thinks, the fact you are pulling up reddit comments in this thread, just proves the point that valve listens to reddit scrubs.
    All this patch did was further buff flash farm meme carries, in turn nerfing any kind of support or roam hero. The skill cap of heroes has been lowered for ages now, and carries have been buffed since we hit the 6.82 generation. Everyone was talking about "more gold for support", but that doesn't mean anything if the carries are getting faster gold and thus the game is tending towards EM. I think the only buff to supports was the bounty on wards, that was it. Apart from that everything has been inadvertently buffing memes.

    Take the current jungle spawn for example. The -20% punishes every normal jungler, however the 1min respawn time with the extra camps from the prev update, has meant jungle is now buffed for every flash farmer who enter jungle after their first big item like BF.


    Tl;DR 5 carry meta, bad balance.

    My only joy in this game is the death ball meta - 5 man group meta, I like walking around with my team stun locking people with supports, or roam ganking. Every update, this becomes harder to do.
    And every update the lane phase becomes more boring and lower skill.

    I feel like this is what casuals want.

    Playing carries 24/7, because supporting is boring and lower skill.

    Valve is prob trying to get dota2 onto a broader playerbase. Which obviously is bad for everyone already playing it. BUT MONEYS.

    I would have literally given my left testicle for new DOTA2 maps to play on (back when I cared).

    But eventually one of them would catch the Dust 2 syndrome anyway, so whatever.

    I wonder why they never did that? I mean HoN tried it I think, but nobody ever played that map.

    A new map wouldn't be that difficult to do, would it?

    Yeah but if one tree is in the wrong place, bitches will cry that it's imbalanced. They can't even balance this one map properly, imagine if we had 4 or something.

    What is even the point of denying now as a support? Better to just harass enemy out of lane and let your carry treat denies as part of his farm.

    (70% up to 100%) vs (100% up to 130%) [Condition: left side doesn't deny]

    It's another way to outplay your opponent and win your lane = Another factor that shows the difference between 2K and 5K.

    Spoiler: 

    Denying got buffed by 10% in favor for the denying person if done correctly.

    You obviously did not understand the point my comment was making. Go back to reddit please with your patronising crap.

    Yes. Valve is on the good path to make the difference between 2K and 5K even more visible.
