At this point you probably have a really good chance to get a key from them. They are giving away 180 keys a day everyday and they have been giving them away for quite a while now. I got mine from that thread months ago when they were giving away just 8 a day. smile.gif

I wouldn't worry about getting scammed there, just make sure you have a good password so if and when you win a key your account and key won't get jacked.

I've been in the beta for about a month now, and I must admit, I'm a little disappointed. I think the LoL user interface is much better and I'm disappointed that Valve hasn't added anything new to the current heroes. I'd suggest they give each hero a new skill--- they need to add something fresh and new to the heroes imop.
The interface and graphics are an improvement over the original DOTA, but it's still got a ways to go before it could seriously give LoL or HoN any fear.

I'm sure you can find some people here to game with. There is also a lot of info at playdota.com that can help you out, I highly recommend it.

If Valve added a new skill to every existing hero I'm pretty sure the Dota community would explode in anger. If the player base wanted something like that then everyone would just go play HoN. I for one can tell you I would be seriously annoyed and probably wouldn't play the game.

Also pretty sure that LoL and HoN have to have some at least some worry. The innovator of the genre has teamed up with one of the best game companies out there in Valve to create the second iteration of Dota. What isn't there for them to worry about? tongue.gif

I can see what you're saying, but I feel there is no difference between DOTA and DOTA 2 other than the user interface and graphics. IMOP it needs something else new to fully draw me in-- I think it'd be really cool to have a new skill, but you may be right, the DOTA community may not like the idea.

It may be Valve developing the game, but it comes down to userability and gameplay still, and I know it's the beta, but LoL is better in these aspects. Take the DOTA name away, and I see no advantage DOTA 2 has over LoL up to this point.

Also, I know the purists may not like this idea, but imop denying is old school and adds no benefit or enjoyment to gameplay. I'd like to see it done away with.

You're right that there isn't a lot of difference between the two games at the moment but Dota 2 is still in beta after all. They're focusing on getting the game as stable and as similar as Dota 1 as they can. New features, heroes, and items will of course come with time. Also, the new GUI, features, and graphics are a pretty huge upgrade when comparing the two games. You can definitely argue that there isn't much difference between the two games but I can argue the opposite as I pretty cannot go back to Dota 1 at this point.

Denying is a pretty huge part of the game, especially early. That is another gameplay element that would drastically change the game if it was removed. How can you say it adds nothing to the gameplay? You are preventing the enemy heroes from gaining additional gold and experience which is a big deal.

I look forward to new heroes, features, and items. It'd be a nice breath of fresh air.

In reference to denying, I know it has its benefits, but I don't enjoy having to do it again; infact, after getting use to LoL, I find it extremely annoying now. I just don't think it's needed anymore, and I think those who never played DOTA will hate it.

Don't get me wrong, I want to see DOTA 2 succeed as much as anyone, but developers have a lot of work to do to make this game successful.

And I find LoL missing the ability to deny extremely annoying, it is impossible to please everyone.

Agreed. Everyone has their preferences.

Probably those that like to play HoN will be in favor of denying and those that prefer LoL will be against it.
