Can't think of a proper n...

    I hope for the hero changes, specifically some insane reworks of abilities and talents to make players try out new things, to have some new fun strats + some overall meta tweak from teamfight=win.

          Give MKB a cooldown for the proc like basher but just a quicker cooldown.

            ^why don't just reduce mkb's chance instead? like %75->%65

                    I am firmly in the 'remove neutral items entirely' camp. Either they are relevant and therefore imbalanced due to their random nature, or they are a distraction that, while giving free stats, don't have impact worth spending time trying to acquire.

                    If they are to stay in the game, I'd rather see the items be handed to players upon reaching a target, and they can select which item they get from the tier. Target could be cs, xp, networth, or a combination of some stuff etc. Items can be picked up at the outpost OR the secret shop OR exclusively at the returning side shop.

                      Make drum of endurance lvl up by buying recipe, like Dagon. Just refreshing charges in not enough. It also should increase stats or bonuses it gives while activated. You have never seen someone buying another recipe because of its useless. And for the love of god make Doom’s infernal blade to have a true strike: how should I break with Aghanim PA passive if I’m not able even to hit her.

                            Nerf Clinkz make him unable to eat huge zombies in Diretide. Please don't nerf Sven. I love Sven <3


                              Aside from balancing, I hope there will be more innovations like map changes, new items, or even some new stuff. I'm open to try new innovations added to the game

                                  I personally think they should remove neutral items too but they seem to add the talents they have and neutral items to try and be inclusive to the hero pool as much as possible and maybe have found out that it's essentially the same thing its always been.

                                  It truly depends on what their next goal is. Is it to just shake up the meta on the same foundation? or is it to move Dota in the next direction. Because if they want to move dota in the next direction then adding things like Shrines, Outposts, neutral items isn't the way to go. It just causes unnecessary inflation. Something has to be changed or a core mechanic needs a rework. Adding things is just making it harder for newer players to learn and making the game more irrelevant for your mistakes.

                                            Nice wishlist. Here is mine: Actual new item.

                                            The game kinda needs a refresh, but that's because I'm bored. Anyhow, I welcome a heroes' update.


                                              Please, i beg you, just rework the current LS, his feast needs to be like before... his rage must reduce BAT, and he doesnt need any passive AS, cause desrroys every lane, his ultimate needs a better aghs or atleast give the aghs to his open wound or his rage...


                                                You should buff Ursa, this is guy is suffring a lot!

                                                  Pointy Shoes

                                                    Neutral items are good and should stay. The whole point of them is to allow for having a jungler OR 2 heroes in the offlane.

                                                    All abilities should be vector based with changed cooldowns. That would really make dota evolve.

Either remove them, or make them non-random (announcing pre game what items will drop so people can arrange their match-up according to that).

                                                                                and also please nerf the mobility creep. Mobility creep has gone so bad that it's no wonder hero like sniper is falling off. Haste used to mean something right? Nowadays most heroes just casually walk in the 450+ range. Bounty hunter at level 10 can already move at perma haste, it's so retarded.

                                                                                      The laning phase feels worthless enough as it is without being made more irrelevant

                                                                                      nitro dubz

                                                                                        My main issue with neutral items is that there are several neutral items especially in tier 3 that if you miss out on you're put at a big disadvantage. Tier 1 & 2 items seem fairly balanced, Ocean Heart is pretty garbage and should be reworked/removed but for the most part all the items in these tiers have their uses and they're weak enough that they don't give a huge gameplay advantage.

                                                                                        Tier 3 items are where the big offenders come in, and where the major neutral item imbalance comes into play in my opinion. If your team misses out on Paladin Sword & Titan Sliver and the enemy team gets both of these, you're gonna have a bad time. Titan Sliver especially seems way too good, literally everyone wants this item. Either remove the status res altogether or drastically nerf it down to 5% or something. Greater Faerie Fire, Craggy Coat & Enchanted Quiver seem underwhelming as well.

                                                                                        Tier 4 and onwards feels balanced enough and it's late enough in the game where a neutral item isn't going to make or break the game necessarily, although you could argue a couple of them like Minotaur Horn & Flicker are overpowered.

                                                                                        Kobo Anjing

                                                                                          Balance on how neutral item can be acquired instead of RNG.

                                                                                          All team meelee, you get Ballista late game, or maybe the physical carry just not suitable using that item. Congrats.

                                                                                          Ex-Machina just a dogshit item.

Also it is possible to have a team consist of low mana lineup, especially in solo Q.

                                                                                          Magic Lamp on the other hand felt worse than Shako.

                                                                                          There is situation where someone can get fucked over if they get Trident on a losing side and cant simply purchase 6150 item.

                                                                                          Aside from that, every item also wasnt worth the same. Brooch, Arcane Ring, Jelly, Shovel, Mango Tree simply better than any other dogshit item. Then again there's a chance enemy getting those good items and you get PMS, keen optic, Iron Talon, and Ocean Heart.
