comment How the Arcane Boots + Soul Ring trick works?
Well with a Bounty Hunter, Nyx, Riki or some hero with a Shadow blade or Invis Rune, this is always a risk. Plus someone could just run into you and get a stun off and deny your items. It is a risk, jsut like taking off your Tranquil boots for jungling. And I can't remember if any other games do this, but I find this is an advanced mechanic that better players can use, with that risk of loosing the item.

comment How the Arcane Boots + Soul Ring trick works?
@Waterseas Actually I think it's a neat way of handling it. Otherwise how should it be handled fairly? You have the same amount of mana (eg. 100 mana out of 100), if you pick up a +1 int item you should have 100/107 mana? This would be increasingly worse there more int an item has. This way you don't get screwed over by picking up new items, but you can ofc "game" the system by using the above mechanic. But since this carries a risk (an enemy hero picking up or destroying your boots), it's fair.

comment What hero abilities can kill illusion heroes instantly (or close to instakilling)?
Legion Commander's Overwhelming Odds does increased damage to illusions/summons, so it's good against Naga and PL. But ofc, it doesn't kill them always, just does a lot of damage and it's an AOE ability. Earth Shaker's ult is also quite good against PL and Naga.

comment How can I set Brewmaster's Pandarens to permanent control groups?
I actually thought it already did this, after you've set them up...

comment Can I make my HUD take up less space?
You could look into buy the MLG hud on the Community Market, it is a bit smaller than the others, but not amazingly small. Dota is just meant to be played with a little "viewport". Plus I'm quite sure the game is made, so that people with higher resolutions see more or less the same as those with lower resolutions. Otherwise it would be unfair.

comment What is the cause of so many people disconnecting at the beginning?
I would also add that some people will do it after character pick, if they encounter problems/lag. Ie. their game is running poorly for some reason, so they pick and quickly restart Dota2, to try to resolve the problems.

comment What is the genre of HoN/DotA/LoL?
I think the reason Riot made another name, was to not reference the original game, plus it makes sense to move away from names that are based on the original games. FPS'er are not called Wolfensteins or Maze Games.

comment Support: When to be offensive or defensive as a support?
Very good guide, though I feel it is based on a high(er) level of play and not so much lower level pubs etc. In lower levels of play, you can be more greedy, as everybody else is (that's why you have 4-5 carries sometimes).

comment Blademail damage return type
I think an example would help here. Eg Hero A casts a 100 dmg, magic resistance takes that down to 75 dmg, which gets reflected as pure damage

comment How does the directed camera choose what to show?
I think it's mostly unknown. But I think it's some sort of AI like the "Director" that was used in Left 4 Dead, that governs what is "important".

comment What are “Reliable Gold” and “Unreliable Gold” in Dota 2?
Is killing the Courier also reliable gold (like a hero kill) ? I haven't found any clarification on it.

comment Are there hidden costs to buying Dota 2?
You could also go to: reddit.com/r/sharedota2 and ask for a key. Otherwise it's a free game to play. You will once in a while get a chest (like a box in TF2) that requires a key to open. This key costs money. But you can just not open it. There are also tournaments, that cost money to spectate, if you're into that.
