Just here to say my GOTY 2012
post #1202 of 17115
Got in the beta a few days ago... spent the last few days getting used to the controls and view angle. Definitely pretty fun. Just added myself to the spreadsheet so let's get some games going!

Definitely needs more hp. Was such a headache without key bindings to use nature attendants, orchid shiva's force staff phase boots midas! Messed around by getting force staff instead of guinsoo which is probably why i died 6 times but still fun. especially impetus + force to see how much dmg u can do...and how much it affects the arrow trajectory

Wait...you weren't using key bindings? Why not?

Can anyone suggest some sites/guides/videos that I can use to learn? I played some LoL, but never got deep into it. I love the art direction and many things about Dota2, but so far I just can't get into it because of how badly I suck lol.

One thing I do really like, and have been actively doing is the watch feature. I feel like I've spent more time so far watching games than actually playing.

Watching games is a great way to learn how to play the game if you are watching good players. It might not be so useful if you are watching a random game full of bad players. There are a bunch of links in the OP that you can check out for replays, strategies, and things of the like. I highly recommend that you visit playdota.com and read some of the guides there. They were written for Dota 1 but the gameplay, mechanics, items, and heroes (including spells and recommended item builds) also apply to Dota 2 because they are the same in both games. Here are a few guides that are definitely worth reading. Hope this helps! smile.gif

We are working on a new update process that will allow us to build new features while minimizing the risk of destabilizing the game for everyone. To achieve this we are creating a new version of the game specifically for testing purposes. Everyone that has access to Dota 2 will find the new test version in their Steam games library, under the name “Dota 2 Test”. Instead of releasing the new content directly to Dota 2 each week, we will put it on this Test version first, where we’ll be monitoring it for any glaring issues. The week afterwards, we will update Dota 2 with the previous week’s Test version (while also releasing more new content in the Test).

As a result of this, both versions of the game will be getting updated each week. If you want to help test the new content, or just try it out ahead of time, you can play on “Dota 2 Test”. If you are more interested in stability and don’t mind being a week behind on new content and features, then you can keep playing Dota 2 as normal.

Unfortunately, the switch from previous update process to this one has been a little tricky, as we get the back end set up for Test, so there’ll be no update today. We still hope to have an update ready in the next few days

No update this week, sadface.

You can custom bind almost everything, though. I have my items set to Z/X/C/V/B/N so I don't have to leave the left part of the keyboard.
