So if you were actually physically in Dota 2, what skill/ability do you think would really hurt? Regardless of the already stated damage, I mean. Let’s just say that Spectral Dagger and Finger of Death dealt the same damage for example. My choice would be Finger of Death; forcing my body to turn inside out sounds so horrible and darn embarrassing too.
Let’s go over the most embarrassing ways to die in a Dota 2 match, including examples of professional players, various scenarios in-game, and so on.
Game-winning Dota 2 ultimates
Think about it: You’re winning a game of Dota. All’s going well, and you’re excited for your +25 MMR. Next thing you know, your whole team is inside of a Black Hole or Echo Slam, helpless and humiliated. As much as it is fun to spectate such plays, it can be disastrous as well as embarrassing for the ones inside the skill.
Dying to neutral creeps
Whether it’s overestimating your HP, miscalculating the range for pulling creep aggro, or any other reason, dying to neutrals is the most embarrassing in my opinion. Dying to enemy heroes in Dota 2 is one thing, but dying to the game itself is just humorous. There’s no excuse and no justification unless you get killed by neutral creep instead of giving your opponents a kill.
Dying to Roshan
When you face Roshan alone on a hero like Troll Warlord or Ursa, be sure that you don’t make any miscalculations. Not only can you die to Roshan, but you can also lose the Roshan kill and Aegis as a consequence, which would be ultimately embarrassing and humiliating.
One-shot kill by heroes
One of the silliest ways to die is by a critical strike on a Phantom Assassin dagger that instantly kills your hero. Another prominent one would be to be killed by Heartstopper Aura even while being chased despite having invisibility — that’s just plain humiliation and embarrassment. There are a few others in a similar fashion, but let’s keep that for sometime later.
Dropping an item, dying, and having it destroyed
The most costly and tragic way to die is after dropping your items on the ground to get some extra mana or health out of a consumable or regen item. Not only do you die, but the item gets destroyed. Like many pros, including Clement “Puppey” Ivanov and Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi have learned, obsessive efficiency isn’t always that efficient in the end.
