I used to be a very addicted Dota player. However, I have been out of the game for a while and with all of these additional add-on players I'm really confused. Which new character since 3.14 version would you recommend and why? I use to be in the top of my game especially with sniper utilizing the shoot and run method. Pretty straight forward strategy that always worked for me.

My vote goes to faceless void too. But it is important to know that in most of pro games there is no late game at all - check out some clan war replays and you will see that game end at level 13, 14. That is because AOE damage and teamwork is much much much more important then hero killers.

Well, you're right about that but what's the point if we're not there to kill heros? That would take off the fun out of the game for me. For me personally, I can careless about AOE but I'm more of a hero killer. But ya, I do understand to seriously win any game you have to play team work. Sometimes though, if you don't play with your buddies even saving them would cause ya!

Try using Shendelzare, agility type-long range...skills you need most- magic missile,command aura,and netherswap then all excess skill points to attribute. Lower your opponent's HP then stun him/her if he/she runs away use netherswap and hit him/her again....

Ic, Is Shendelzare similar to Genomancer? What I've heard about Genomancer seems to fit into the description or with similar ability which you talk about. He uses traps too right?

their skills are very different..except for their type(agility) and range(long-range)...Venomancer has a damaging ultimate unlike Shendelzare....

Lina, isn't it he kinda cheap and is hated by all people? lol, I remember using her and people always run away when they see me. But then again, late game if you don't know how to use her well you'll be an easy target and FEED!

Bradwarden Centaur Chief!! He's wicked!! Because of his hoof stomp, enemies have a hard time escaping. When he's on level 16+, enemies will start to flee every time they see you. The last time I used Bradwarden, I got 20+ kills!

True that Centaur Chief is one tough cookie, but everytime that I end up using him I always get gang banged. Wtf? I hate that, don't you though?

Dark Terror is kind of cheap, I personally think that particular hero is kind of boring.

right now I like to use axe (mogul khan), its fun to use, easy to get money from the creep, and kinda hard to defeat by normal strengh hero, the burn spell, the counter helix and the berserk rage is too great for those to handle, and the culling blade too, its a beginner hero, just add 3 stout shield, and axe is immune from enemy creep.

You know, Mogul Khan was my favorite hero. However, when you have a stunner who keeps stunning him IE Troll. Things get a little bit annoying and although his helix is deadly, it's virtually impossible to break free from the perma stun. Back to the topic though, my question is who's a better new hero? Since I don't know much on the heroes that are new I really need some help from people!

Dota means Defense of the Ancients, a game which involves with warcraft 3 which I was addicted to around four months ago. Since I have been out of touch with this particular game, I was curious as to what its updates with players with some experience with it. It's an addictive game if you ask me. I wouldn't recommend it to those that have not started playing it. To shorten the version of explanation, it revolves around a team of 5 players versus 5 players which players from each end of the map horizontally. The objective is to destroy your opponent's base, once you have done so the game ends. The usual play time has been around 45 minutes or so, however in an expert game it can take a lot less time.

My favorite hero in DOta is Bounty Hunter.. When i use that charater i never loose.. You can kill as fast as you can and you can also escape if you want as fast as you can.. The 1st item i make if i use bounty is Divine Rapier it makes me feel untouchable.. No one can ever kill me if i build that item..
