DotA Discussion / Re: new map 7.00
« on: July 24, 2020, 12:39 »
Had a few games, so here's my 2 cents. The map's overall pretty fun, nicely structured and more action-packed; it certainly requires more brainpower, but a few games are all you need to adapt.

Folks complaining about gold icon being shifted to the bottom right as a HUGE UI change is just... laughable.

You people literally need 1 game to process these "huge" changes, and maybe 2 mins to process "huge" UI changes.

Someone mentioned us being "stuck" with Drako's Dota changes, and that we have to simply obey to everything he does - yes, you do, the same way you did with IceFrog's versions. Or gather a team and start putting effort into creating your own "flawless and immaculate" Dota map and see how exhausting that actually is, maybe you'll start appreciating the work being done by Russians more.

Each and every time people complaining when the new map comes out. Embrace the changes and acclimate or host your own private 6.83 (the worst fucking Dota version ever) IceFrog maps and see how many people join your lobby.

We complain all we want as long as we dislike the map.
Im a mapmaker myself of Lords of Europe so i do know a few things about mapmaking and balancing.unlike you.
But whenever I made changes to the map, i always asked the players oppinions about it and made changes it stays fun. I never pushed it down on somebodies throat just because i could.
My opinion stands. The UI sucks, and dota2 sucks as well. Any changes made toward that direction is killing dota1.

''For sejanus and corristo stop talking shit about the game you dont understand any patch came before this was bad when I played this one. ''
Fatality: i dont want to take this personal as you do.but i have my opinion and if you dont like it you can fuck right off where you want.
Any patch before this was bad? 10 years of Dota 1 was bad, but the first map coming out with dota2 resemblence is suddenly good now? OMG, what a pathetic statement you got there.

A few rational thoughts
- we should give the map a chance for some time and give constructive feedback if you want to change something for the better
- v7 is not even final yet, a temporary reversal back to v6 is not a problem
- like Icefrog dota was the-map back in the day, d1stats is the-map today. When Icefrog did something bad we just had to accept it and move on, now it is at least possible to contact the developer directly and give feedback, whether it is accepted or not.
- staying on v6, if decided by the community, is not a viable long term solution unless there would be some kind of an LTS program for that version. Even then, we would miss any good features coming after v7.

I think we should stay on v7 for a few weeks, collect feedback and then decide if we go back to v6 for a period of time, stay on v7 or what the next steps should be. If there is no consensus within community one side will have to give in since hosting both versions is not an option, it will diminish the available player pool and make lobbies longer.

Just a few thoughts about this.
1) Our problem is not to move on with the map. Over the last 10 years, we always had new heroes added, new skills, new items, and minor map changes. But they all came step by step, while always staying loyal to the main concepts. They were just furbishing the game. Obviously mistakes were made, unbalances were fixed later.
We adapted and learnt the new ways. This is NOT our problem.

2) Our PROBLEM is that this map wants to make DOTA2 from DOTA1, and it's unacceptable for me, and for others also.

3)I dont like and don't want DOTA2 MAP terrain in dota1. No need to copy paste it, new runes, outposts new roshan location. No need, and no like. I don't know who asked for it ever.

4) The new user interface is a catastrophe as it is. Everything is bigger, takes too much of the screen, icons are misslocated, minimap change also dislike.

5)If you want to add new heroes have my upvote! If you want heroes rebalances GOOD. New items? FINE. Keep the rest as it was, classic UI, classic terrain (minor changes are ok if really needed).

6) The game feels like APEM. Easy and fast farm. everybody is having expensive items after 20 minutes, this reduces the importance of gangs and farming skills for individual players.

7) Make a POLL, let's see how many players would like to play v6 or v7. Or make it possible for us, classic dota1 players, to play v6 again. If we can play both maps simultaneously.

8 ) Missing any good features from v7 in the future? Or just avoiding any more bad features perhaps? It's a matter of point of view. What if the majority of players doesn't like v7 and the way where Drakolich takes Dota1? We have to go that way because nobody else works on the map?

9) Lastly, for last time: Don't morph Dota1 into Dota2. We can go and play Dota2 already. We are here to play Dota1, and if you force us to swallow this, we (Me) will simply abandon LA as it is, as it's not enjoyable anymore in this form.

love it!
"unneccessary information"
yeah, it's really annoying when you can see your enemies list, it's better play with eyes closed to not receive any excessive information, just use your ears
"gold label down the way"
hell yeah, keep playing your 13" desktop. it's such a pain in the ass to move eyes top-down all the time you try to buy a thing. Hope your eyeballs are fine there.

Drakolich, just roll back the interface as it was, but keep the hero and terrain changes. Like it or not, but you fucked up the interface hard. This is my opinion, and sorry if it hurts you. I know you probably won't give a shit, and just keep it this way, rather than acknowledge the players opinions and make some changes, but I HAVE to tell it anyway. Take it as a feedback, and make the changes accordingly. I will check back, when I get back my classic dota1. At this stage, the map is not enjoyable for me.

You'll have to give more information on why you think the new version is bad, saying the new map just "sucks" won't get you anywhere.
If you don't understand the new map and need to learn how the new stuff work then it's not because the map "sucks", it's because you need to adapt to the new fresh patch and stop doing the same things (picking same heroes, going same item build, same strategies etc.) which you were previously doing in the last patch.

It's not about learning new stuff. The map simply sucks because the new UI, the way it looks. The player ''interface''. Why couldn't he keep the classic interface of the game, and just implement the hero balances, new heroes and other upgrades. What bothers me the most, is the new interface which is annoyingly informative, the whole screen is filled with unnecessary information, while he moved BIG YELLOW GOLD counter bottom right for no reason. I feel like sitting behind a fighter jet, looking left and right while everything being more annoying than informative.

The map lost it's classic feeling, it's a cheap copy of dota 2. We don't want dota2 in warcraft3 ok? We want dota1, CLASSIC dota1!

Ok, my first impression is, that this new map sucks hard. Give us an option to host 6.9 version, or just throw this rubbish into the bin. If I want to play Dota 2, I go and play Dota 2. No need to ''upgrade'' it into this. Thank you very much drakolich, for fucking up our classic dota 1 map. Sometimes LESS is MORE, and in this case, it's totally true. Lost all my interest in playing this trash just after one game. Super disappointed.

Technical support / Re: Installer problem

Thanks this worked. Plus I had to run windows updates, after which I was able to install the Microsoft Visuals c++ 2015 as well. This solved the issue.

Thank you all for the support!

I just reinstalled my windows today. Win 8.1 PRO  x64.

I'm trying to install the installer, but it gives me an error "The program can't start because api-ms-win-crt-heal-1-1-0.dll is missing.

I understood that I need to dl and install the Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 x86 or x64.

But when I try to install the Visual C++ at the end it gives me another error: 0x80240017 - Unspecified error.

Any ideas?

You have to provide:

1: Your ingame nickname?
2) Moderator's nickname (as in subject).
3) Why you are not happy with Moderator's decision / behavior.
Bad decision, abusing commands.

He insulted me by saying ''Moron'' to which I replied ''You mother is moron""
Later on he asked me for apology, and I apologized. For some reason he still banned me a few minutes later. Anyway, it wasn't meant seriously, but as an inst-reply, which is common in games.
At my unban request he said I didn't apologize, which I did, proof in the chat.
41:05    Jimmy    [Allies]    corristo ill give u one shot to apologize
41:09    Jimmy    [Allies]    for that
41:12    Corristo    [Allies]    you called me a moron
41:15    Corristo    [Allies]    for what reason?
41:16    Corristo    [Allies]    tell me
41:18    Corristo    [Allies]    then i apologize
41:20    Jimmy    [Allies]    im gonna call u a moron
41:21    Jimmy    [Allies]    again
41:23    Jimmy    [Allies]    and an idiot
41:25    Corristo    [Allies]    should i thank you for insulting me?
41:27    Jimmy    [Allies]    but i wont insult your mother
41:34    Corristo    [Allies]    sory abou your mother

Since he muted me ingame, i asked him in whisp why the mute instead of simply ignoring, for which he insulted me on whisp again.

Im not sure if this is a proper admin behaviour, but alltogether he insulted multiple times.

Thirdly,why multi-ban me for past things which I did in 2016 (!) and 2018 (!)?
I was banned for those already, and it was 4 years ago.

Can any admin please unban me, and ask him to stop this childish behaviour?

41:23   Jimmy   [Allies]   and an idiot
41:27   Jimmy   [Allies]   but i wont insult your mother

You took out sentences from the context.
Here how it does looked like:

41:05    Jimmy    [Allies]    corristo ill give u one shot to apologize
41:09    Jimmy    [Allies]    for that
41:12    Corristo    [Allies]    you called me a moron
41:15    Corristo    [Allies]    for what reason?
41:16    Corristo    [Allies]    tell me
41:18    Corristo    [Allies]    then i apologize
41:20    Jimmy    [Allies]    im gonna call u a moron
41:21    Jimmy    [Allies]    again
41:23    Jimmy    [Allies]    and an idiot
41:25    Corristo    [Allies]    should i thank you for insulting me?
41:27    Jimmy    [Allies]    but i wont insult your mother
41:34    Corristo    [Allies]    sory abou your mother
41:39    Corristo    [Allies]    you are the retard
41:43    Jimmy    [Allies]    yes
41:44    Jimmy    [Allies]    i am
41:46    Corristo    [Allies]    ok
41:47    Jimmy    [Allies]    and im an idiot
41:53    Jimmy    [Allies]    but insulting someones mother
41:56    Jimmy    [Allies]    i not allowed
42:06    Corristo    [Allies]    abusing your power isnt nice neighter
42:10    Jimmy    [Allies]    abusing?
42:13    Corristo    [Allies]    muting?
42:16    Corristo    [Allies]    why not ignoring then?
42:31    Corristo    [Allies]    i coudlnt comunicate with team
42:36    Jimmy    [Allies]    because if i ignore
42:37    Jimmy    [Allies]    u can flame

This was the whole conversation, and as you can see, I did apologize.
But you wanted to ban me regardless, not becasouse insulting you or you family, but becaouse this is the person who you are. You were just looking for a reason to ban me, and here you found it. I've seen players asking for ban for more serious insults, and they were refused, this was nothing compared to other players insults.Plus you provoked me.

Please rethink you decision.

1: NickName?

2: Who banned you?

3: Why did you get banned?

4: Reason that forced you to break the rule?
He insulted me first, for which i replied from reflex. Wasn't seriously meant, and later I apologized in game.

5: Explain to us your general vision about the situation.

I don't like being insulted, and flamed by.I counter insulted him by reflex, for which he asked me to apologize. I did,but he still banned me.
He also muted me multiple times in game, which is considered admin abuse of power.

Again sorry for insulting you mother Jimmy, but if you insult somebody first, expect a counter insult. The thing that you still banned me for it, even after apology shows your character and the level of which this server reached.
Admins can freely insult others, abuse their position(Mute), asks for apology, and still giving ban for it.

I know its possible to set to permanently show health bars, but I don't like it.I preferred to keep it clean

Thats my boy
Thats why he will forever be an 1400 player

Sure.I was 1700+ 5 years ago. but you are probably right. I will be forever 1400 player. Like psr matter when you play with noobs in team, or every 2nd host plays with stacked teams prepared.

U can disable it in Settings under , ill upload a screenshot.
Its Options>Gameplay.

Uncheck this Box , and use manual command to display HP bars.

I already had it unticked. How to set manually command? I'm not using any 3rd party hotkeys.

DotA Discussion / Health bar hotkey
« on: May 05, 2020, 21:02 »
Hey guys, sorry for the stupid question.
I played dota 5 years ago, rejoined it recently. Back then, when I pressed ALT it showed the health bar of units/heroes. But right now it shows the radius of tower's range, and neutral creeps.

Is there a way to set ALT as hotkey for healthbars again, or was it moved to a different key with recent patches?

I know its possible to set to permanently show health bars, but I don't like it.I preferred to keep it clean, and pressing ALT whenever i wanted to.
