    I'm guessing it will be crafting recipes and items for this event.

    I'm guessing that as well. What I worry about is how they'll judge value of items offered... since some mythicals are much rarer than others. Steam market prices?

    Very disappointing event. Much more vile threats and attitude than in regular games. It's only good with 5 man (and 5 man only) stack. I feel bad for people who spent money to gather ingots and just ended up wasting them in the end because 99% of the time the other 4 people on the team don't buy anything and just leave as soon as they hit 100k damage.

    Didn't have much patience for the event and had a relieving sigh after I got 3k tokens and just cashed my first and only mythical box.

    Would it be possible to gather 5 people together here to form a party for a few Year Beast runs once he returns to earn decent amount of Jade Tokens? Since it's weekend I will be playing 24/7.
    By forming a decent party I mean that we all actually spend gold to buy equipment not just go for the 100k damage minimum which is honestly a waste of time.

    I have rediscovered Drow Ranger. Can't believe I avoided playing her. Nothing but easy wins with her, except obviously stomp games where my team goes 1-35 in first 15 minutes, other than that it's win-win. Also, seeing how many builds are saying you to get Shadow Blade, I honestly feel it is a huge waste of resources. Instead of Shadow Blade you can rather build Helm of Dominator and Crystalis and you will be hit like a ****ing truck even early game. Engaging without Shadow Blade might be a little harder, but the engagement does not make it OK to spend 3000 gold on an item which can easily be countered and made useless by Dust (180 gold for 2 uses) and Sentry Wards (2 for 200 gold).

    Just go Power Treads > Helm of Dominator (so you can switch to semi-jungle/full jungle farming if lane very hard and farm is low, also to be able to exchange more damage and survive easier + start stacking those ancient camps by yourself) > Crystalis (pretty much the point where you just become a killiing machine)

    The rest is really up to what enemies you are facing. Black King Bar would be recommended but if there aren't many stuns on enemy team I don't see why you should get, then better go for Satanic immediately or Butterfly if you know your team can cover your ass.

    EDIT: This is how Drow Ranger looks like. No, that loss doesn't count because the game ended at 15 minutes, Sniper mid was 1/10 and top lane was 0/8 together. All the others were decent games, good chances for both teams.

    Yes, that is a great build. I'm not a big fan of Lothars on Drow either. I like getting an early manta on her as well, I love the extra survivability and move speed.

    Lost another game with Drow but only because of dumbasses again. 25 minute game with 2 feeders, Io and Slardar, 0/16 and 1/23 accordingly. Other than troll games like these my Drow run has been flawless which makes it 13 wins in a row.
    Made my own build I play every game.

    Congratulations!

    On another note, hoping to get my ranking up more. Got it up 200 points 2 weeks ago, and this week it went down about 120. On the bright side, it's slowly climbing...

    I managed to top 10 with random pubs too. We were just short of 20 million damage in the 2.5k ingot rank. I don't think it's that hard anymore since people don't really care about highest score, just enough to get the max number of tokens.

    Drow is good, but not great... I find she goes along the line of Sniper, they're easy to play but not great
    Ice arrow -> Viper is better for that
    +% more damage for range people -> Nevermore and Weaver do that for everyone
    Silence/push -> Kinda a saving grace.... but again BKB/Linkens is common on carries and does nothing to save you
    +agi -> 400 range... really so 225 range from your attack range, this seems like a bad version of clinks 1-2 combo +120 attack speed and 60 physical damage no matter how close you are

    again the problem with her is BKB/Magic Immunity/Link stops her and has really no good way to deal with the silly if well played carries, and someone in your face makes you loose a very important skill

    Weaver with 2 second down time stealth, who 99% of the time will get a linky so stealthing him who will generally be behind you will cause you to waste silence and him to shacuchi, his - armour isn't stoped by BKB since it's physical

    Windrunner without a BKB is just a dumb windrunner, you either get truehit so you can hit her or she gets the super mario star for 5 seconds and pelting you with max attack speed hits

    But eh I mostly play support, I just win as Chen... WOO CHEN TOP TIER MOTHER ****ING SUPPORT!

    She definitely isn't one of the better carries because of how easily she can get shutdown, but a lot of fun to play, at least for me. Any team that won't let her attack causes her to be useless, you just need one person to get in her face and cut off her ultimate.

    I don't like Drow pickers in my games. She's way too easy to shut down.

    Is it because she's a bad viper or clinks?

    Or viper can Q you and you loose 40% of your move speed and attack speed also removing your Q

    Seriously Viper is silly

    50% magic resist, makes him bulky to burst
    His slows effect move speed and attack speed
    and his images proc the bonus damage from his W for 100% of it's damage? and his passive which slows on hit... he wins with spectre with heroes silly with images

    seriously if you want a disgusting wind runner with BKB and crysalis

    Enemy goes to focus you
    BKB,Wind run 5 seconds of both magic immunity and 100% evasion enjoy, and when you ult there is a chance you do full damage with your ult with 4 attack with a second with a 50% reduction is like picking up a double damage rune, now if you crit during that one second your damage spikes to
    50%/50%/87%/50% = 237% more damage then the number shown before armour and reduction.... then when you upgrade to delicious this spikes up to 50%/50%/120%/50% giving you = 270% more damage, also with how crit chance works (if you dont crit the +% increases even at 20% your guarenteed a 1/4 hits then with daed it's like every second hit or third causing a possible 170%/70%/170%/70% =280% to 340% more damage in a second, now

    for 5 seconds your invulnerable doing a possible 280% to 340% of shown damage per second lets be fair and average it out to 310% more DPS per second and near impossible to interrupt

    If you're that farmed then the game is probably already over or their carries would have gotten MKB by that point to counter windrun. Also windrunner is incrediby squishy so as soon as your BKB or windrun runs out you're pretty much dead.
