But I'd just like to know the reasoning for not having gold loss upon death.

I understand this game caters to a more casual gamer as well as the hardcore, but I don't think it's right a 5-5 Yi can have the same level of items as a 5-0 Olaf (I don't play Olaf, this is just an example).

I think it would promote better team play and strategy, rather than some of the current players who just get a beefy/high DPS hero and tower dive not worrying about any consequences.

You'd have to think before you acted.. not that you don't now.. but I think there should be a bigger degree of repercussions for being a kamikaze.

Don't flame me for it, it's just my opinion and I'd like to know yours.

... NO.

Dude, don't make it worse for team who got feeders. PLEASE DOn'T .

This just makes people be able to rolfstomp easier, and that's exactly one of the points that RIOT tries to avoid in this game to make the game better for everyone.

It slows the game down. The gold your opponents get is plenty punishment for dieing.

do you know why there's no gold lost in this game?

because there is no Scroll of Town Portal.

you will have to walk and lost XP and gold over time if you die. fair trade?

I understand that, but my counter-argument to that is if you're able to kill that enemy carry once or twice you can cripple his income.

The Olaf will have better items and exp because he is farming when the Yi is spending the time being dead.

Why would someone not spend their gold in the first place?

The problem is that teleport characters like TF or so, or anyone with teleport, will just go b, and teleport back so they don't lose their gold.

All the game itself will have to change.

It's way too game changing and IMO not enjoyable at all. it's one of the things which made me not like Dota that much.
