That's correct. In most Dota 2 game modes, duplicate hero selections are not allowed. This includes Captain's Mode, which is the the primary mode used in tournaments. The exception is Mid Only mode, which can only be played in private lobbies. In Mid Only mode, Creeps only spawn in the middle lane. Duplicate heroes allowed.

A unit is any entity that can be selected and is not a building or a ward. Creeps are units, heroes are units, summons are units, illusions are units. Note that this definition is not specific to Dota 2, and is used by the vast majority of RTS games.

As a general rule of thumb, each hero has 4 abilities - 3 basic abilities and 1 ultimate ability. Every hero has at least 3 basic abilities and 1 ultimate ability. Some heroes, such as Shadow Fiend and Broodmother, have sub-abilities. These are associated with 1 or more of the basic abilities. For example for Shadow Fiend, Shadowraze (Medium and Far) are ...

The wiki does talk about the limitations of Rubick's spell steal, and it does provide a list of spells Rubick cannot steal: Cannot steal passive abilities, item abilities, or active attack modifiers (except for Walrus PUNCH!). Cannot steal spells which have no use on their own (aka sub-spells, such as Launch Fire Spirit or Shadow Poison Release)....

Moment of Courage can proc during Duel Duel applies the Taunted status to both Legion Commander and her target, which combines a Silence (cannot manually activate abilities), a Mute (cannot manually activate items), and forces the unit to attack a specific target. Nothing about a Duel disables the passive effects of abilities of items, so Moment of Courage ...

That's not what is happening in the video. In that clip, the Tinker drops the Aether Lens and the Dagon, then picks them back up by just clicking on them.

These are some of the longest cooldowns in the game. Unless I have missed one, this should be every skill with a cooldown greater than 120 seconds. Note that some of these cooldowns are accurate only for having 1 level in the skill. Keeper of the Light's "Will-O-Wisp": 120s Bane's "Fiend's Grip": 120s Lone Druid's "Summon Spirit Bear": 120s Sand King's "...

According to this thread on Reddit, unfortunately without further source, it is a maximum of 17-18 seconds between kills.

Those are consumable items and actions available with purchase of The International Battlepass 2019. From left to right, they are: Trusty Shovel, used to dig up treasures such as Battle Points or the "cosmically-rare" Honey Heist Baby Roshan courier. Silly Monkey, which cheers for the player's last hits and denies, and flings poo at enemy heroes attacking ...

Here it is. The Underhollow, originally only available to players who purchased the 2018 International Battle Pass, is available as a custom game this very moment.

You can steal all active hero abilities with Rubick's ulti. However, there are some abilities which doesn't give you the full utility of the skill. Devour(Doom's first skill): You can eat creeps and get bonus gold but you won't get the abilities of the creep. Chronosphere(Faceless Void's ulti): You can use Chronosphere but Faceless Void won't get frozen ...

You just start the replay and record it yourself with a video recording software. I used to do it with Fraps (Download Fraps). But the free version of Fraps has some restrictions. Most people these days use OBS (Download OBS). So after you have setup Fraps or OBS you need to put the "Record" function on a hotkey. Then when you are ingame you press the "...

The first year a person could receive a replica Aegis was TI5. International Compendiums were available since TI3, but the first year the Aegis reward was available was in 2015 with TI5. Here's the official blog post announcing it.

Yes, all of Omniknight's abilities can be used on himself. This was something I found unintuitive at first as well (with Dazzle's Shallow Grave, but same concept). Most ally-targeted spells can be used on yourself because you are an ally of yourself :)

That is correct. The way i think about it is that multiple factors of amplify/resist spell damage add, not multiply. So if let's say you have 3 factors that amplify the dmg, you actually do (initialDmg + 50% + 50% + 50% = 250%), not (initialDmg + 50% + 75% + 112.5% = 337.5%). This could lead to huge amounts of dmg.

EXP and gold you get in DOTA 2 come from landing the killing hit on an enemy, be it a player or one of the creeps, which are the minions heading towards your base. However, you ONLY get rewards from you or an ally landing the last, killing hit on an enemy mob. It doesn't matter if you did 95% of the damage yourself, only the last hit counts. Because of that,...

It means that the virtual method InstallSchemaClassBinding of one of the schema bindings from libschemasystem.dylib has a registration error because of a local class not locally-scoped. Although you didn't ask for a fix, I would suggest a clean reinstall. To fix this manually, you'd need to bypass the anti-data tampering code, which I would not ...
