Mid Bud

This would explain a lot, actually.

I can get behind this. The amount of bitches I find in my bracket makes me wonder whether Darwin made it all up.

EDIT: I have not heard this song in years.

No wonder I keep running into so many mid Nasus picks!

A dog playing DotA2? I'd watch that.
I don't play DotA2 or any other MOBA, but if I did, I'd probably be one of those guys you're all complaining about.

I played Dota 2 once. The other players asked me if I was drunk. I don't think I'm very good at Dota 2.

I say give it a go. It can't be any worse than the "Air Buddies" spin-off movies, which just keeps on pumping out uninspired sequel after uninspired sequel.

Below is a sequel to a spin-off of a sequel to a sequel to a sequel to a spin-off of a sequel to a sequel to a sequel to a sequel to a movie that wasn't that great to begin with.

I'm all for people enjoying what they like, but Lordy I can't even imagine sitting through that as an eight year old. I can only imagine these movies are purchased as bulk gifts by hurried aunts and uncles grasping at straws or nine-hundred year old grandmas grabbing crap randomly out of the bargain bin for their unfortunate sixteen year old grand daughter who she still thinks is six.

You can't argue with that pedigree.

My friend and I just recently went through initial ranking after playing about 180 regular pub games. We were thinking we were pretty good at the game and expected to get an average ranking of 2500-3000. Nope. Not even close. Our ranking was 1355. We still swear that we're good at the game, but are constantly dragged down by shitty teammates.

There always seems to be a Sniper on our team who feeds the enemy mid like it's their day job no matter how many times we gank mid to help him out. I have never played with or against a good Sniper other than my friend (Sniper happens to be his best hero, but doesn't play much anymore cause he's pretty boring).

Trust me man, your MMR is about where I'd expect it to be after 180 games. I've got over 600 games (300+ wins) and I got a 2.5k mmr.

Dota 2 is a game so deep sometimes I despair of every learning all I can do in the game and still I see stuff where I'm like "wait what happened there".

Your MMR will go up but I don't think it will if you keep blaming your other team mates. Think about it the other team has guys with the same MMR as you on it, the odds of having someone that feeds just as much is the same as it is for you. You play enough you get good at making decisions and taking fights your mmr will climb.

Also finding where you're really bad at is important.

For me its farming and last hitting. I'm awful at it, but in game decision making is questionable at times as well but no where near as bad as it use to be. I think that if I got better at last hitting and farming in general I'd be a mid 3k player.

But how would we know they're dogs if they're on the internet? Also, it's nineties with that extra e.

lol why is Erin playing with a castle and space ship like an 8 year old?

Why does Suit and Glasses always look pissed off at Erin lately?

Ah, the MOBA - the genre where you either play by a bunch of arbitrary rules veteran players have made up, or you're apparently terrible.

Well, there was that "Goldfish plays Pokemon" stream a while ago...

MMR? To me, that means measles, mumps, rubella and is usually a reference to that combined vaccine. I'm guessing it means something else for Dota, though.

Or playing DOTA actually gives you measles, mumps and rubella. The way the players are always whining or something or other, it might just be true.

Did I miss the memo about legos in web comics? I like 'em fine, but it seems like everyone's doing it now.

Perhaps playing against the dog will make for more intelligent conversation than a lot of other MOBA players. Even most of who plays on XBOX LIVE.

Question, why do we allow people to harass/berate others in online games? You'd think after that whole crackdown in LoL and the whole OMD dev going full retard we'd think we learned our lesson.

"someone's getting fed" cracked me up, good stuff. One of the better once of the last while IMHO

Weaver:

Because the castle at least is Lego and Lego is fun for all ages. I don't care what it says on the box. All. Ages.
If you leave someone alone in a room with a box full of Lego and they don't start playing with it then they are clearly a lizard-person from the Earth's core that hasn't quite mastered the art of living amongst us

Wasnt' there a thing called Game Dogs here a while back?

What's with the gigantic anime eyes?

I don't play DotA2 or any other MOBA, but if I did, I'd probably be one of those guys you're all complaining about.

The problem With MOBA's is that you really rely on other people more than mot genres. Everyone has to know and fullfill their role for the team to work most effectively. The genre is balanced such that dragging a dead-weight player is like playing with a team one short or in some cases is WORSE than that. In a small team of 4 or 5 that is a big deficit. MOBAs have small margins that snowball over time so even a great team can't really pull that extra dead weight over the course of a match. If you get matched up with a poor or disruptive player on your time you might as well quit at the onset. But because of how MOBAs work you have to complete the match or you reputation gets hammered (dropping out is a big sin in competitive games)

It's an issue with the genre, especially with the role definition needed for an effective team. They seem to be hostile to new and learning players almost by design.

Well I'd rather have a dog barking at me than screeds of cusswords and insults when I get ganked. I always felt that the majority of DOTA pros aren't human anyway.

I used to love the air bud films as a kid.

I would totally watch this.

The link says Dora 2 but with dogs, is this intentional?

I was wondering this my self... I thought they might make a reference to dora the explorer where Erin kills the little girl by sicking dogs on her. I think I got my hopes too high....

Objectable:

Yes, it was Godawful. One of the worst things The Escapist put out.

Shadowstar38:

Probably cause she had Suchong piss on his head.

Unfortunately, Air Bud is now a senator from Kentucky because there wasn't any rule saying dogs couldn't be senators. He's probably actually on the anti-gaming side of things.

Darwin was dead on. Unfortunately, adaptation doesn't necessarily make you smarter. In fact, I have this hypothesis that the gene responsible for offensive dumbasses on the internet is the same one that is responsible for excessive fertility.

Matchmaking Rank, according to teh googul. All I could think of was the MMR vaccine, too.

In Russian dominated MOBA, dog feeds you!

I feel like I'm missing half the joke as I have no idea what MMR means ...

Matchmaking Rating. Basically an e-peen extension and matches you with similarly ranked players online.
