I suppose it does but you might be pretty confused by the time DotA 2 comes out. Pretty sure HoN mixed and matched a lot of heroes' abilities and things of the like. wth.gif

Yep, maybe 20 are the same, the others are either different skills or completely different. But it'll be fun re-learning the heroes and experiencing the thrill of "WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ABILITY! BULL S***!" xD

I used to play Dota on Battle.net, feels like centuries ago.

Hopefully I'll get to finish some of the single player games I've been putting on hold because of social life cause when Dota 2 comes out I don't think I'll be playing anything else for a while.

Yeah thats how DotA has always been for me. I've probably played literally thousands of hours.

...Guess who got into the beta? ninja.gif

Yeah seriously I just played 2 games of DotA 2 thanks to my friend who let me use his Steam account. First game ever I started out 4-0 with PotM but eventually failed to win the game. Second game the enemy AM beat the crap out of us because our lineup was bad and he is such a strong hero in his current state.

I enjoyed it a LOT too, seriously a lot of fun. Shops are very awkward at first but I can see how it'll be a lot faster once you know where everything is. Also don't know what most of the hero and item icons are but that will also come with time.

Started playing dota 2 versions before Icefrog took over, must have been 2004, play hon at the moment, can't wait for Dota 2, the hard carries in Dota were just so much more fun than the hard carries in hon. To be honest, I can't wait until november, my schedule is going to look like Skyrim - November/December, Dota 2 Beta - Possibly (if I get invited), December/January, D3/Dota2 for the rest of 2012.

I've been following and waiting for dota 2 since it got first announced. For those of you who are hopefully waiting to get into and play the beta remotely anytime soon...don't get your hopes up.

We aren’t planning to have one big beta invite tomorrow. Right now the beta primarily consists of the tournament teams, Dota1 beta testers, and other players that might compete in upcoming events. We will gradually give access to more and more players over the coming weeks and months. The Dota2 development process, like with Dota1, is focused on getting incremental player feedback to help us prioritize features and functionality in the game. There won’t be an immediate million person invite all at once, but rather a gradual buildup as we develop new features and test various aspects of the game in order to to make it an enjoyable experience for an expanding player base.

Well, I USED to like you. tongue.gif

More importantly, how does it react? Does the source engine do this type of game justice? Does in UI feel laggy at all?

Pretty much sounds the same as me minus Skyrim. If Dota 2 and DIII come out around the same time my head is going to explode. Dunno if I'll be able to handle it haha.

Well that news isn't all bad, it just means they aren't going to be inviting huge numbers of people all at once. You still may be able to get into the beta.

Hahah. Yeah man the spell animations are crazy. I saw Pugna's Life Drain for the first time and I was like holy **** thats bad ass. The GUI is pretty sweet too. It actually reminds me of B.Net. You sit in a chat channel and all of the game's menus are right there. I experienced 0 lag whatsoever during those 2 games as well.
