DOTA Madness - Chapter 100
In DOTA, killing soldiers on the same side was called Deny.
For the soldiers who were denied, the opponent can only get half of the experience and no gold coins. Yan Yuelan relied on her skills in last hit and deny to suppress Zhao Dingguo. This caused that she first reached level 6 when Zhao Dingguo just reached level 5!
That was quite a gap!
Moreover, in the previous match, she had exhausted Zhao Dingguo’s supplies.
Under such circumstances, Yan Yuelan was ready to use Poison Nova to kill Zhao Dingguo in one fell swoop. However, Zhao Dingguo was aware of his danger. Therefore, he moved more carefully in the next alignment and used the Animal Courier to buy another Ancient Tango of Essifation and a Clarity Potion from the store.
Yan Yuelan didn’t know that Zhao Dingguo was carrying supplies, but she knew that now was the best opportunity for her to take the initiative. So, after waiting for a while and not find a good chance, she took advantage of Zhao Dingguo’s effort to place a Plague Ward, and resolutely crossed the line to prepare to kill Zhao Dingguo!
Seeing Yan Yuelan’s movement, Zhao Dingguo was shocked. His response was also decisive, and he immediately retreated back to the tower. In addition, through his own prediction, he shifted in advance to avoid the opponent’s Venomous Gale skill, and at the same time placed a Plague Ward!
This series of actions undoubtedly made Yan Yuelan somewhat surprised.
To be able to reach the Dawn rank in just six battles, this guy has talents!
However, although her Venomous Gale was missed, Yan Yuelan’s determination to kill Zhao Dingguo has not wavered! Her white tender finger lightly pressing the shortcut key V, and the ultimate skill Poison Nova was released. A large group of green venom rings appeared instantly around the Venomancer and scattered all around.
Facing such an AoE skill, Zhao Dingguo was powerless even if he wanted to hide.
Level 1 Poison Nova could last 12 seconds and dealing 36 damage per second. Combined with the passive skill Poison Sting, which dealt 15 damage per second, Zhao Dingguo’s HP dropped rapidly! He could only keep moving back to the tower, hoping to rely on the deterrence of the defense tower to make Yan Yuelan give up the pursuit.
“Do you still want to escape?”
Yan Yuelan looked at Zhao Dingguo, and at the same time controlled her Venomancer to rush directly to the tower. Although her HP dropped rapidly under the attack of the defense tower, Zhao Dingguo, who was hit by Poison Nova, was also very unhappy. Seeing that he could not escape, Zhao Dingguo simply stopped under the tower and began to attack Yan Yuelan!
Maybe this will result in a mutual kill?
However, he forgot that Yan Yuelan’s Magic Wand was full of charges!
When both Venomancers’ HP fell to the bottom, Yan Yuelan quickly used the Magic Wand, and both her HP and MP increased by 225 points. After released the last normal attack, she retreated gracefully, leaving the tower’s attack range with more than a hundred HP left!
And Zhao Dingguo was unfortunately killed…
Zhao Dingguo, who thought he could take the opponent with him, was disappointed. This was the weakness of pure pushing style, using Plague Ward too much would give the opponent the chance to recharge the Magic Wand. A fully charged Magic Wand could sometimes break the balance!
This was not the first time Zhao Dingguo has seen someone use it to fight back and escape.
Maybe, in the future, I should consider paying more attention to this item!
Because the level was not high, Zhao Dingguo was soon resurrected in the fountain. After giving himself a Poor Man’s Shield, he used the remaining money to buy a TP and flew to the middle. At this time, Yan Yuelan, who had taken the First Blood, reached level 7, and she also bought Phase Boots and an Empty Bottle.
In DOTA, the Empty Bottle was a very special item.
It could be charged with three charges in the fountain. Each charge could restore 135 HP and 75 MP in three seconds. This was an item that can help replenish on the lane, though the price was a bit expensive – 600 gold coins! Of course, although it’s equivalent to six Healing Salves, it could be used repeatedly. After being used three times, you just needed to return to the fountain or load a rune to refill it.
Although there was no rune in the river in the solo mid, Yan Yuelan could transport the Empty Bottle back and forth through the Animal Courier.
It’s by this method that when Zhao Dingguo arrived on the line after the resurrection, the other party’s state HP was almost full again!
How can I fight?
The overall backwardness of the level and equipment left Zhao Ding feeling powerless. However, he was not the kind to give up when facing headwinds. Although the situation was unfavorable at the moment, Zhao Dingguo still played by the pure pushing style, forcibly destroyed the first tower!
The reward of destroying a tower made Zhao Dingguo’s economy slightly better.
Solo mid’s victory condition was three kills or two towers. Although he died once, he successfully destroyed a tower. If he could take away the second tower before Yan Yuelan completely suppressed him, then it’s still his victory!
However, Zhao Dingguo, who was about to push towards the opponent’s territory, forgot a small problem. Once he followed the line of soldiers, it was tantamount to losing the protection of his own defense tower. Fighting head-on, Yan Yuelan has a 100% certainty to rely on equipment and level advantage to kill him. If he withdrew when seeing the other party, she could also push him out of the experience zone.
If it continued for a long time, he still had to lose!
The essence of the pure pushing style was to rely on destroy the tower quickly to accumulate economic advantages and force the opponent to keep defending. But now, Yan Yuelan suppressed him and she also had the First Blood. Faced with a stronger opponent, Zhao Dingguo’s pushing could not advance. If he rushed, he would be dead! Even if he wanted to change the playing style, it’s too late now!
After being seized by Yan Yuelan and killed again, Zhao Dingguo took the initiative to type GG and surrender.
In fact, the game was not over yet. Yan Yuelan needed to kill him one more time to win. But Zhao Dingguo knew that he had no chance. And this solo game was only used to test his ability. Even if Yan Yuelan made a serious mistake, let him seize the opportunity to push off the second tower, what’s the point?
Both sides were smart people, so this solo mid ended before the results appeared.
“He’s pretty much what I want!”
After pushing the keyboard away, Yan Yuelan looked at Old Li, nodded in approval, and then extended his hand to Zhao Dingguo: “Welcome to join my temporary team!”
This even determined the position of the fifth person of Zhao Dingguo!
Knowing this, Zhao Dingguo rejoiced in his heart, but tried his best to keep calm, and said, “That’s it!”
Yan Yuelan smiled and flicked her hair slightly, which was quite charming: “The match will begin in two days. Tell me your ID, I will use a special prop to pull you in. But I think it is better for us to run in advance. Isn’t the Order of Light providing training battle service? Let’s set the opponent to the level of 1200 AP and play a few matches! ”
Zhao Dingguo certainly had no objection to this.
Yan Yuelan gathered them together with a contract, which appeared to be a bug in the eyes of the BG platform, so matching opponents were either a well-prepared team or passers-by with a slightly higher average level. If they wanted to win, they must mainly rely on the tacit understanding between acquaintances. Therefore, it’s necessary to train together for two days in advance!
After all, he was willing to participate in this special mode, in order to win 800 BP. As long as they could get the final victory, hard-working in these two days was nothing.
