    Great work torte! As someone who stopped dota for 8 months (2~3 patches with 1 huge one (item addition) ) I can refer to this as I try to get back on my groove.
    Question though, how would you like these builds to be discussed ?
    Here ? ( which can get quite messy and when new patches hit, they get irrelevant) , steam page ? (which seems to not have much discussions going on) , or individual threads on PD ? (which also might not get attention (or yours specifically as the creator/data miner) )

    Thank You

    Thank you.

    Feedback is generally appreciated here or when the /r/HeroBuilds subreddit is setup (I'm trying to figure out a bot that can transcript my patch changes).

    LiquidDota will still be the place where I am actively posting in - but I will post each 15-day published changes (and stats) here and respond to inquiries/feedback.

    As for feedback, the ideal way for feedback is to provide an explanation behind a suggestion. I cannot implement all suggestions as I prefer to keep the builds succinct, but I do respond to feedback rapidly.

    Phenomenal work, keep it up! :)

    One thing that could be fun - a little section "something fun to try out", be it a certain item build, skill build, lane combo or something else. Of course, not necessary for every hero, but it could be interesting.

    (maybe check out claniraq's builds for that)

    Thank you.

    I would love to do fun/funny builds, but 150 builds (and Monkey King coming) is my actual limit. Maintaining these guides is 3-4 hour daily responsibility. When a new patch hits, I have to do update or verify all texts, titles, item/hero builds in the next 48 hours (otherwise I get spammed) and the follow-through of two weeks of closely monitoring builds both in-game, via Dotabuff, feedback and on community boards/opinions.

    Here is an excerpt from my Year-in-Review article:

    It would be great if PlayDota had Dota Hero Icons under the 'Smilies' Tab
    Also, when changing titles to include '[HERO]' brackets, please add a space after (e.g.: "[Meta] Standard Hero Builds Project"). Specifically for the guides subforum, topic titles should be allowed to be publicly edited from the original poster.

    Damn that's a huge time investment, and your guides never let me down, even bigger props your way.

    Maybe one day (especially if you get someone to work with you), there is a little "fun" section under every guide :)

    The doom builds have a typo in the second sentence it says "...can fulfill two roles: One being an auto-attacked..."

    It should be auto-attacker. The icon for infernal blade is still the LVL? Death icon as well

    I cannot.

    Thank you.

    Since the guides are on my Steam Account, there can never be a way for someone to truly 'work' for me sadly. I have to do all the changing myself. With financial support, I can dedicate more time and expand the project to more guides.


    Thanks I'll fix the typo.

    The icon being outdated is a display issue - it reverts itself to the Infernal Blade icon in-game.

    You need to update your OD build really bad. You have the 86 skill build on OD still.

    Also not sure if this is a guide issue, or that your Invoker is out of date, but you can't/shouldn't skill invoke level 1.

    86 skill build?
    I'm in the process of moving, so I have not updated the builds in a month or two.

    Invoker: It's a guide issue. It displays getting level 1 Invoke, but in reality - it is already level so the guide skips to what is set at level 2. In other words, it's bug display problem and not how I've set the actual leveling for the hero (the correct leveling is properly displayed in-game)

    By 86 build, I mean 4-1-4 build. Everyone goes 1-4-4 nowadays.

    I have it on my 'to-do' list of heroes to check. Will get around to it by this week at minimum.
    Thanks for the heads-up.
