I wanted to make a thread where we can post and talk about our own matches, because i didn't quite feel it fit into any of the other threads although it can be shoe-horned into the "How was your day dota edition" thread.
I want to start off with two matches:
Looking at the stats of this game, you'd say that the Luna did a good job carrying her team. This why stats don't tell the entire story of a game.
This luna had a safe-lane, got early kills and rushed midas. She then proceeds to go a farm-heavy build and farm farm and farm, the tide-hunter went for a quick vlads and also farmed the jungle. This team could have pushed and won quickly, instead the tinker, tiny and kotl were left to defend towers on their own. It was only after luna began being ported to the lane that we were trying to push that she actually joined the pushes.
We could've won quickly, but instead we won at 50 minutes. I lost mid to the kunkka and tried my best to recover which i succeeded at in the end of the game.
But yeah this luna would save up 6k raw gold and then buy an entire butterfly as her second big item and continue farming. We won, yes, but 30 minutes later than the opening we had and it gave the opponent and way back into the game that they didn't abuse, but could've abused.
When your opponent picks lifestealer and huskar in a pub, what do you do?
You counter-pick the ever-living pomegranate out of them and absolutely stomp them. This game felt great.
Didn't get to finish my refresher though, made a heart and in retrospect that wasn't even that great of an item against a huskar and a lifestealer.
