Buyback mechanics - cheat death concept or not
Buyback mechanics - cheat death concept or not
Buyback (BB) – is a mechanic that allows you to avoid death pause time and return to the active game. Buyback is the same fundamental option in Dota, like Roshan, Aegis, or BKB against a tremendous amount of magic spells. BB’s formula hasn't changed in the same way for the last 3-4 patches. At the same time, there is very little information on how to BB correctly. As a result, mucho low-ranked players don’t even think about the importance of BB, even in early games.

“No carry” Dota or what is the importance of pos-1 role
“No carry” Dota or what is the importance of pos-1 role
It’s a good idea to reduce the number of players in the Dire or Radiant team by getting rid of the “carry” role, and thus reduce the team's dependence on the most toxic “high-skill” player. However, all this looks like a good solution until you realize it in practice. Dota 2 is not about fast “button pushers” and massive electric 5x5 team fights. This is a strategy where the central aspect for winning is the game economy, from which players are required to build their role profitability. That is why you can’t win a match without distributing the game resources (gold, farm, space, and experience) correctly.
