It wasn't anything too serious, as we only played with about 3 of the girls from the team, but still fun and competitive!
I use mIRC to find CW and 5v5 matches and out of the blue, Sayuri asks me if we can scrim on USeast. Next thing I knew, we would be playing together for the next 3-4 hours smile.gif
Another cool thing was that we had Korok from team Its Gosu watching us on one of the matches biggrin.gif

Ah okay cool. That's pretty awesome that you were able to play with the for a while. Thanks for the info.

My question, should I just start playing games against people and suck, pissing my team off, or continue to practice some more? I don't want to gimp a team by sucking....

I would go ahead and and play matchmaking games. After a few games you'll be matched with similarly skilled players so I wouldn't worry about it too much. The only real way to learn is to play and watch replays.

NA is a fun and really annoying hero for the enemy to play against. I used to get so mad when I got 1 shotted by a competent NA haha.

Yeah, I saw that too. That was such an unfortunate battle for him... If he wasn't stuck, they most likely would have gotten the aegis and potentially beat NaVi.

Is the game taking longer to load than normal for anyone else? Usually takes seconds for me to load up a game or start watching a game but today it's been oddly slow. Maybe it's a latency issue for me? But like I said just started doing that today.

Can you add me to the OCN group as well. Steam username is Acebeans.

Steam server screws up a lot of time, even if I have 50 ping I still can't move sometimes frown.gif Valve needs to do something better than that.

Seems to be much better now.

I got by beta invite about two weeks ago and I've played 60 games so far. I really like this game. I always played league of legends kind of on and off but dota 2 really has got me hooked. I don't know what it is I like so much more about it but I just feel like it's a better game and I have tons more fun in it most of the time.

Every game I play in dota 2 seems to be against people that have almost never played any other dota type game, i.e LoL or HoN.

Went like 30 and 2 on riki the other night and 20 and 5 on sniper the other day.

Game feels clunky though frown.gif not smooth enough in terms of animations imo.

Really? I think the game is incredibly smooth and polished especially for beta. I've heard other people complain about the animations and how they relate to dealing damage etc but it just doesn't bother me at all.

I have played nearly 400 games at this point and while the servers are sometimes down, I've never been unable to move my hero around. The only times I've ever lagged in game was when I had uTorrent open or something of the like. Hope that problem goes away for you.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the game and trust me I know what you mean by being hooked. I've been playing Dota for a solid 5ish years at this point. smile.gif

If you keep winning games you'll start to be matched with and against better players, trust me it gets harder. As far as the clunkiness you speak of goes, it is probably just adjusting to the game engine. It is awkward for pretty much everybody for the first dozen or so games. You won't notice it after a little while. smile.gif
