Here's the thing:
Nerf Now is primarily a gaming comic, there are going to be a lot of references; some of which people won't be familiar with.

Dear Whiners,
Jo draws the comics that he wants to draw. You can read them or not read them. Bitching about a certain theme or game appearing in too many comics changes nothing.

Take this strip for example from another artist who pays rent with his comic: www.ma3comic.com She(he?) really liked some of her characters, and wanted to make more strips with them. Made 3 so far, linked on the main page, and they all update whenever.

(cont) to pick up from just art work, or at least specific magical aspects. A TF2 chars, Diablo, Starcraft are pretty obvious. If there were 6 diff mages in D3 i think the same problems would be present.

[url=#user_comment_233924]@Serenity[/url]: Can't agree more with the last comment. Jokes about certain rare guns in TF2 arnt funny unless you get it. But the personalities of engie tan heavy etc are great. Personalities for these blighters would be cool if they were introduced. I think the problem is magic isnt an easy trait..

@I Got It Wrong: Ditto. [url=#user_comment_233940] @Lama051[/url]: Because they still require basic game knowledge. It's not obvious the midget with a shovel who has been called both OP and food in previous comics also has a copy ability.

Meepo is the best character in all DotA2.
I installed DotA2 only to play as Meepo, since playing him feels extremelly similar to playing Warcraft3 (moving multiple tropes around, trying to make your best time, etc.).

The fact I always end 1/9/3 is complete unrelated. :p

There is nothing inherently wrong with DotA comics. It just kind of spoils the humor if you have to look up an explanation of the punchline to get the joke.

Insider comics are hilarious to those familiar with the content, but boring for those that aren't.

Is Meepo not wearing pants?

No, fuck that, lets just let Jo do what he wants, I find the dota comics entertaining anyway.
Freezestar
over 11 years ago
After seeing all of this fighting I may have a solution that would make everyone happy (maybe). What if Jo splits comics into two comics (maybe three), one that is just Dota comics (that way Jo can make jokes that only Dota fans would get) and one for the other comics (maybe one for just tf2).

Dota also has tons and tons of free passes and is still rather new. numbers don't mean a damn. Also, if managing what to use during each fight and responding to what your opponents do doesnt require a brain, then you're just being a hypocrite
Kraid

*sigh* I hate comments like "Fuck off Fanboys" and all that. All honesty though, I understood the comic despite not actually playing DOTA.

A character got attacked by someone who can either a) multiply, b) disguise or c) copy.

Fuck off TF2 fanboys, dota has 4 times the number of players your shitty game has and it's not even released. You're all noobs who can't play a game that actually needs a brain to play unlike that mindless casual hat simulator

(oops, typoed name last time, cont) It doesn't matter what the comics about, if strips abut all games started being like this it'd still be getting just as bad. Like if Jo threw out TF2 character personalities and went to making nothing but inside jokes based on weap stats and abilities. Would suck.
Sereniy
over 11 years ago
(cont) and everything that made it lighthearted and fun. It's not the DotA 2 comics ruining it, it's how the comics are handled. Constant oneshots and puns based on in depth game and character ability knowledge, with no emotion or attitude. It's becoming increasingly bland.
Serenity
over 11 years ago
@Red R Hood: This, exactly this. dota2 comics aren't bad once in a while, and having them often would be more tolerable if the characters had their own characterizations like Engie-tan and the rest, rather than just being based on in depth game knowledge. The strip's losing it's personality and feel

Dota comics are fine and all, but they would be better if you would personalise them more. TF2 doesn't have Medic-chan, that was author embellishment on the original characters.
Game commentary and jokes are good, but if you had a stable and unique dota cast it would be better I think.

Also his core item (aghs) gives him +1 meepo (2/3/4/5 meepos). His based around micro one clones into ganks while others farm. Or do a train.

TF2 comics all stem on the defined personalities of the 9 characters and whatever Gaben throws at us over time. Dota comics stem from the undefined personalities of the 100+ characters. There's a lot more room for creativity. How many times are we going to see a "lol it was spy! XDDDDD"
Joreal
over 11 years ago
I hope Gaben releases Half Life 3 soon, not because I've been waiting for it for so long, but so Jo will do something other than DOTA2 for one comic.

Kinda surprised he went two comics without it, I thought one would cause his lungs to start collapsing until he started scripting a DOTA followup.

Not gonna lie... I find most of the Dota 2 comics funny, but I also agree that they're getting old. TF2 comics at least had defined characters, these are just "game mechanics joke" "game balance joke" "gameplay joke" "repeat cycle".

@Freezestar (misspelled name, whoops) These Dota 2 comics however make a lot of references to things that some of us don't get. Heck, I have even played Dota 2 and I don't get these references. All I see from this comic now is Dota jokes and you trying to give your opinion through jokes or straight.

I am going to have to ask you to stop making Dota 2 comics. These jokes are getting boring. When you made the Starcraft arc I thought it was funny but it was just one arc (and some other Starcraft comics later) and you never made any references to the series that people would not get. ...
