* CatharsisFactor: Got trashed in a legit match? Start a single-player game in a bot-available version, select the heroes that just kicked your (team's) ass, turn on God Mode and kick THEIR asses.

* HellIsThatNoise: "FOR KHAZ MODAN!" is either this, or MostWonderfulSound, depending on whether or not the source is on your side or not.
** The distinctive roar of a Mask of Madness being activated after being charged by a [[CrutchCharacter Spiritbreaker]].
** [[LargeHam "OUR BRETHREN'S TOWN IS UNDER ATTACK"]]
** The sounds of ''any'' enemy [[InvisibilityCloak windwalk]].
** And more recently "THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS."
** AHHHHHHHH FRESH MEAT!
** In [=DotA=] 2, SILENCE! SI-SI-SI-SILENCE!

* GameBreaker: Item pooling. Recently [[{{Nerf}} nerfed]]. Also backdooring (no, not THAT backdooring) and cutting off your opponent's supply of creeps (the latter is debatable). The Fun Tavern (only available in versions where you can team up with and battle the AI) reveals that some heroes of past versions were even more broken.
** Backdooring was never a gamebreaker. People just didn't like it.

** There are *lots* of mechanics that fit into this category, usually mechanics similar to denials that were either bugs, or unintentional side-effects of the Warcraft 3 engine. Most of them are kept in because the devs and lots of players believe it adds skill, but many still believe they're arbitrary.

* {{Griefer}}: [=DotA=] 2 has a ''terrible'' problem with people who leave the game. It's slightly nullified in that if someone leaves, the game declared unfair and lets other players leave without penalty, but in this usually just makes the situation for a losing team ''worse''.
