Ugh, accidentally added the DoTA 2 Hardware Survey to my library because I thought it didn't come with the full game. Lo and behold, I'm now unwittingly the owner of the full version of DoTA 2. Was planning on trading it for some sweet TF2 items, but I guess now I'm stuck with it. I'm more of a first-person shooter kind of guy, but I guess it's cool to branch out every now and then. Just wish I had known beforehand...

You'll love Dota if you give it a chance. Huge learning curve so don't say you weren't warned. smile.gif

Just want to know if anyone here is interested in some high level competitive play? Currently putting a team together and signing up for some tournaments this week. If you are interested let me know your steam profile and we can play some games together this week and see how it goes.

I wish there was a newbs league or something. I find playing dota 2 unless at a lan is hard. as we all know the dota community has sucked since day one. Kinda hard to absorb all the knowledge you need to know in a game or two. Im finally at the point where I am starting to see who picks what in on my team and choose around them.

Neat thing I did find out this weekend is you can adjust the suggested items to some you want or find in guides for those characters. Kinda cool. Prolly wont be playing much Dota 2 until tomorrow getting a new SS Xai in the mail supposdly.

Yeah, you can do that in-game with the edit button or out by changing the text files for builds. So nice to have all your options right there instead of flipping through tabs (although there is also a text search).

Hi there and welcome. There is already a channel that people use on Dota 2, look for OCN. I know there are a bunch of people that automatically join it when they launch the game. smile.gif

So untill i opened this thread i never knew what DoTA was ph34r-smiley.gif (Hides) i had heared of it a few times but thats all.
Anyways its still in beta right? When is the release date is that announced? And what are the odds of getting into the beta high or super low?

Looks to be a pretty awesome game i might want to get, is it hard to get into? Whats the communitie like?

Dota 2 is still in beta, no release date yet and still up in the air if it will be free to play or not. As for getting into the beta, it seems that they are giving out keys fairly often and many times they give extra keys to people already in the beta to hand out to friends, so someone here might have an extra key to give out if you ask.

As for the game, it is SOOOO much fun BUT has one of the steepest learning curves out there. I've been playing for just over a month and while I've gotten some of the basics down I'm still a long ways off from being even an average player. They are still adding in heroes from DotA and tweaking the heroes currently in the game every week (or every other week) but if you like strategy in games you play you will like Dota.

The community is mixed, there are quite a few player who are helpful and understand that it takes a while for noobs to learn the game while there are other who will just troll you the entire game for being bad. Just ignore the latter and practice practice practice and you will enjoy the game!
