OMG Captians Mode!
After putting about 550 hours in the game I finally gave captians mode a try. It is by far the superior game type. If anyone has been thinking of playing it I strongly urge you to do so because it is good and a bigger population would help with matchmaking times which can hit around 5 minutes. It also auto bans a few heros that many would call OP like huskar, so they never can be picked, also everyone I have encountered (drum-roll please) SPEAKS ENGLISH!!

And that's why I hate Captain's Mode. There really is nor reason for that. Taking out those heroes is just like admitting that they're OP (even though they're not really). There's not even any actual reason to do that, if Valve don't like the way a hero works then they should just change it, not ban that character from an entire game mode. Auto-ban is stupid.

ye but then youd be wasting a slot if 90% of games banned him first.

It doesn't auto ban heroes, some just aren't enabled in Captain's Mode yet. This is normally the case when a hero is first released or if they have been significantly reworked. Valve will look at what the community and pro players think and then either change a hero again or enable it in CM once it is clear that hero is balanced.

For those that think that Drow is OP, she has now been enabled in CM for a while now and check out how often she's picked in the pro scene! Pretty much never, however she is a great pubstomper.

this is wrong, everyone says wisp is "the most broken hero in the game", shes in captains mode.

CM is the best way to play with friends, but ♥♥♥♥ed up if all people are random, especially, if captain is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ noob.

Omniphobe, you must be one of those people who play only flavor of the month heroes.

Oh yeah, he has 150h doto2. Prolly never heard of dota before, was busy playing LoL or CoD but yet he knows best what's good for the game. Jesus christ you can't be that stupid. I don't go into math forums and i don't add my useless 2 cents cuz i know ♥♥♥♥ about it, you should do same over here.

Not to mention heroes that are currently out of CM pool were out also during dota1, it's like that for the reason. But you and your LoL friends are basically bashing on the guy which we owe TI and dota2 to, because you know better.
YaMatehStyle Aug 16, 2013 @ 3:58am 
Also yes, Icefrog "slightly edited" dota since 2005. Damn those 8 years and slight edits :/

Jesus christ, another cancer for my eyes. Pls stahp posting.
