    Pause Screen Tip Suggestions

    With the return of the loading screen tips, now displayed during pause, we'd like to add some more tips to that list. These tips can either be general gameplay advice, which are randomly selected from, or tied to a specific hero so the tip will only appear if that hero is actually present in the game. We'd like to educate not only players new to Dota, but also highlight some of the less well known corners of Dota gameplay depth that experienced players may not be aware of.

    If anyone has suggestions for tips you'd like to see in the pause screen, please post them here. Thank you!

    There can be thousands of suggestions of tips. But the best one has always been 'be nice to noobs'.

    -Magical resist not work vs Pure damage
    -(blood seeker ulty Rupture) not deal damage when enemy hero use blink on large distance
    -You can turn of autoatack in the settings menu. (when your hero affected by rupture, bloodseeker ulty) (in game setting menu, you can bind key that will disables all movements ur hero and your hero will not aggro on any units who's near you)

    -armlet, shadow blade, can be toggled when hero teleporting.
    -roots not canceling teleport.
    -Basher not work on heroes who have passive skills stun. (void, bara, slardar, trol)
    -enemy building cant be attacked when no your creeps near them. (backdoor protection)
    -Cracken snield (Tidehunter) dont stack with items what block damage.(vanguard)
    -When your hero affected by nullifire (new item) your hero still can use skills.
    -use buyback if your hero suddenly got catched by enemy, and you have a time to use teleport to get faster in fight and help ur team.
    -stacking neutrals can give extra gold to your supports.
    -always watch out on game time and try get bounty runes every 5 minutes this will raise networth all your team.
    -when you already 6x slotted, help your supports buy wards.
    -moonshard can be used on any part of map on ur team mate.
    -blood stone make your hero respawn faster.
    -silveradge disable only passive skills, not inventory (aeon disc).

    -When at your easy lane spawned 2 range creeps - go pull this creeps to neutral camps stack. (2 range lane creeps make lane pushing, and then enemy hardlaner can get farm)
    -When you block neutral camps with any type of wards - this can help you get farm (good for hardlaners) because enemy cant make pulls when camp blocked (but can be dewarded with sentry wards)

    When you playing on Bounty Hunter or on Clinks, they have active invis skills.
    -When this heroes in invis and moving and you use dusts on them - this heroes will be slowed. (so when you playing on them and won't be slowed, you need some how out from invis and your hero move faster) For example (swap powerthreads, or hit some unit on map and it reveal you from invis) and you have more chances to survive.

    Dear developer,

    If you want to request for tips or feedback from the players, why you don't share all the tips available to the players at here? Players who are much concern on Dota 2 will be able to read all the tips and learn better as well because of their hard work. Tell me, what is the problem to hide all the tips if you want us to give suggestion for tips? If the suggestion is already in the game, then how? Wasting of our time or maybe wasting of our time to look around and see what loading screen tips can compromise to be next tips.

    [Suggestion of tips]
    - My suggestion (reason why I suggest so)
    ================================================== ========================================
    07-28-2018 at 12:13 AM
    - Silver Edge can disable the passive skills of a hero but it does not disable the passive ability of an item (I noticed some players especially those in lower brackets still thought Silver Edge can disable the evasion of Butterfly or lifesteal of Morbid Mask).
    - Scan can be used on Roshan's pit but it does not detect hero inside the pit. Only nearby hero can be detected (Many players especially those in lower brackets still using Scan to detect enemy at Roshan's pit but they don't know which part in Roshan's pit can and cannot be detected).
    - Standing or attacking Roshan at nearer distance is safer in order to avoid Scan by the enemy (Many players especially those in lower brackets always attacking or try hard to kill Roshan by standing at the spot where Scan can detect them. But they don't know Scan can't detect them if they stand more inside).
    - Using Tango on Ironbranch Wood is better than using on normal Tree because it double the amount of heals (Many players spend 3 Tangos on normal trees instead of using Ironbranch Wood to extend the heals).
    - Using Smoke of Deceit for self-hiding in the map and go for warding is safer because it helps to detect incoming threat from further distance (Many supports don't know how to avoid being ganked or attacked when they wanted to go for warding. They forgot what is SOD and always feed the enemies whenever they want to ward).

    Update (29 July 2018; 00:01 AM)
    - Shareable items such as Tango and Observer Ward can be given to ally by holding the CTRL button and target the item on the ally (In low tiers, many players probably the newbies still don't know how to share or separate shareable items because they were asking me when I requested for 1 Observer Ward).
    - Enable the Neutral Spawnboxes at the Interface part of Advanced Options allows you to check which spot is best to place Observer and Sentry Wards in order to avoid blockage on neutral creep respawn (Many players in low tiers still mistakenly placed the Observer and Sentry Wards in Neutral Spawnboxes. Plus, they don't even know what is Neutral Spawnbox! So, the developer must tell them to go check at Settings!).
    - Earning high kill score in a game does not mean a player can win in higher rate because enemies might able to chase back the networth with a better farming or killing other allies of yours. Therefore, the lesser death can be better to help your team carry to consistently farm his networth (Many newbies always thought high kills means can win but they never care how many times they died. Such nonsense if they keep killing enemies' support only but keep feeding to enemies' carry as well).
    - Higher kill score on a team side does not mean that team is already owning or 100% win a game. You still can try hard and work the best with teammates to chase back the team kill score listed on top (Many newbies always gave up when saw their team score on top was lower than enemies).

    -Axe Utimate can kill curier, and heroes under duzzle grave, or abadon or oracle ult. If trashhold health (HP) allows you to do this.
