Who finds neutral items fun? Should 2nd rosh be so strong? Discussion from returning dota player.

Explore DOTA 2's heroes and find detailed hero information such as skills, talents, stats, and more

I haven't played dota for nearly a year and watching the recent major there are some changes I'm not a fan of.

So I really don't like neutral items for many reasons: RNG, doesn't feel earnt/not satisfying, adds even more complexity to the game that I feel is not needed (late game just feels like an absolute mess), makes heroes super powerful earlier (I like a more gradual trajectory in power), lastly they give heros the ability to be played in more ways ( which I dont think is a good thing since dota already has A LOT of flexibility/variance, now calculating different situations has just become so hard).

W.r.t to the second rosh, I really don't see why ags shard should drop too ( is agis cheese not enough) I cant remember the last game I watched where the team that gets 2nd rosh didnt win…

I wont go into in detail about all these points here since I want to hear other peoples general opinions. But to me it feels like dota had a bad spell (low player count) ( pre pandemic ) and to save it they added loads of casino rng and big power items, and the game just feels a bit messy.

Do you think valve will ever remove neutral items?
