    Gyrocopter homing missile speed

    Here is little comparision from dota1
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=nH6I97SwGFQ#t=07m42s
    to dota2
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7G9bpQIqb8

    As u know map in dota2 is smaller than dota1 because of that i think homing missile speed in dota2 should be increased since it mby not visible for other players but as i played a lot of gyrocypter in dota1 its serious nerf for me since chasing hero for example with phase is impossible since he can reach tower in dota 2 much faster than in dota1 and missile cant gain speed so fast because of small map. tell me what u think about it
    btw in that video is only shown small run of riki since he had only normal boots and he wasnt runing from max range cast rocket but he was next to it when it started so you cant see too much more distance run by riki in comparision

    and sry for my english i know i sux

    i was a bit baffled myself, when my homing missile didnt reach the enemy yet even after he had passed his third tower already.

    not really sure how to deal with this. as the map will most likely not be rescaled and changing the speed of the missile will have other balance implications.

    Well the speed might be wrong, especially the acceleration. When it's at topspeed it seems fine, but it takes a very longtime to reach topspeed.

    First thing is boots. Can you re-do either in dota 1 with boots or dota 2 without boots? You can see in your dota 1 video (briefly) at 8:12 that riki only has a bottle

    Holy my, but that's just about the answer to why is it so hard to play Gyro nowadays. You sir are my savior, I can just pretend that it's bugs and not my horrible, horrible Gyro what's causing me to lose oh so many games.
    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.
