The public vs AI option is probably best if you don't want to kill your stats.
Then again, if you can get 10 OCNers and friends playing at the same time, you could do a private match and have some real fun biggrin.gif

Private games can be played with humans by having up to 10 people join the lobby and/or with bots by selecting the "Fill empty slots with AI" checkbox under options when you create a private lobby.
Let me know if this doesn't completely answer or you need more help wink.gif

+1 to these. Thanks for helping out, Joe. smile.gif

Edit - Here is the latest update, as I mentioned last night Lycan is now in the game!

One thing to check out in today’s update is the new Hero Performance Rating section in your Persona page. Your performance ratings show how well you play each hero compared to other players of similar skill.

These stats are only available to you. Your ratings will become more accurate the more you play, so get cracking!

This week we are also increasing the number of invites being sent out. In addition, we’ll be giving the most active Dota 2 players some more copies to gift to friends. This will be done on a regional basis based on available capacity, starting with US West.

Oh, these might be relevant to your interests:

This week’s Dota 2 Top 10 plays.
AnGeul created a teaser for the Asian Dota Masters tournament.
Finally, today’s changelog is available here.

Edit 2 - Wow...GoDz is a part that Asian tournament and he is a friend of mine. Holy crap.

Also, I got this lovely email from Steam about a half an hour ago and I have 2 beta keys to give away! I am thinking about giving one away in just this thread and the other one in the Freebies section of OCN. So I will start the first giveaway now in this thread. Just make a post saying that you are in and I will give the key away Sunday night, possibly sooner than that. Thanks and good luck!

In my opinion Lycan is the lamest (I could use a lot of other expletives) hero in the game. I've thought this for quite a while now, maybe since even before I had Dota 2. He and his wolves get max move speed with his ulti and he cannot be slowed. So you can hex him but he'll be running at 522 ms (max ms) as a chicken. Not to mention he gets bonus hp and a critical strike. It has a 18 second duration and at level 3 a 40 second cooldown so he only has to wait 22 seconds before using it again.

The only real way to contain a competent Lycan is to pick at least a couple of stunners and gank him out in the jungle before he hits level 6. That can take a lot of time and resources and if you fail to kill him you're pretty much done for. And even if you are successful he can catch up quickly because he farms so fast with his wolves so it will take multiple ganks.

I also started a tally last night, I'm going to keep track of how many times the team with Lycan on it wins. This will be when I'm playing solo or just with like 1 friend. So far Lycan is 2 for 2.

I remember Lycan was an auto-win pick in the Chinese scene not long ago, I could be wrong, but him and Anti Mage were really dominant in term of picks biggrin.gif
