If I ever get a beta key, I hope to be able to play with you and against you as the lack of challenge made me a little rusty.

I can't remember what version it was when I started playing but I've been playing Warcraft III for so long that I remember the AoS map and DotA before it was called All Stars. I played it sparingly back in those days and started to take it more seriously like 5 years ago or something like that. I'd be happy to play a few games with you when you get your beta key. smile.gif

although axe saying "you lose, good day sir" may give me reason to launch this game again.

The heroes' stats and abilities are exactly the same as they are in Dota 1 so you can just read the plethora of info at playdota.com. Dota 2 Cast is useful for newer players as well.

He is the same in both games just like all of the other heroes. thumb.gif

I need to play with you guys, even though it'll be a bit laggy. I've already gotten used to going like 20-1 and still losing the game because people leave (if they actually stay, we can win, it's just that I can't defend all lanes and push) :/
I hate how there's no indication of whether I'm being matched against stronger opponents... although if I keep losing I doubt that'll ever happen tongue.gif
I usually play Ursa in these awful games, jungling and killing Rosh for insurance, then I can rape. I got 5 wins and no loses doing this, but I've now had 4 games in a row where all but one person in my team left frown.gif

Dunno if you are from the US or not but if you are you should have only the USWEst and USEast servers selected for matchmaking. I also lag in the other regions and people will actually speak English haha. And yeah pubs are a pain right in the butt, really need friends to play with. Feel free to send me a message via the Steam Dota 2 OCN group. If you aren't in it yet you can send me your Steam ID and I will add you to it.

I'm from Israel (so EU is better latency-wise), but it's unplayable because of all the idiots... my steam ID is comanoodle, please add me to the group tongue.gif

It used to be fun to just rape idiots as Ursa, but I'm not getting anywhere with this losing streak :E Had another game now where Omni went afk before even going to his lane... still managed to kill AM in lane somehow (I guess the other team is just as bad).

Ah I see. Just invited you to the Steam group. Going to play a few games now before I go out for new years!

Just came off of a terrible losing streak with 2 wins in a row. Met some good players and have been queuing with them!! Been doing well on lion!!! biggrin.gif

I think in the first win i came out with like 21 assists, and second game i had 33 assists! DAT ULTI lol!

My team applauded me, but am i playing lion right? I was watching videos and it says try not to KS with his ulti etc. Just focus on bursting people and let your team finish.

More or less yes. In real games its important to try and let your carries get the kills so they can get farmed up etc. Glad you are enjoying the game. smile.gif

Pretty much heroes like Lion and Lina you want to throw your ult out onto the opponent rather early so that you can get the maximum damage output done and kill them as quick as possible. Blink Dagger is a great item once you get the hang of your hero too so you can blink onto people and stun/mini for easy kills.

Currently sitting at 47-3-1, definitely feels like pub Dota.
