[Official] DotA 2 Information and Discussion Thread. - Page 205

post #2041 of 17128
My friend was talking about Dota 2 yesterday, so I decided to go on steam and check it out, and found out; That I actually had gotten a free copy (beta key) of the game without knowing!
So, I've been playing some games, and man do I suck. I've played a lot of LoL, and while the genre is the same, the two games are just so different. Its a pretty decent game, although my low skill level is making me rage so hard at times. Fortunately, most people are bad, so noone is calling me out smile.gif
Anyway, can you guys recommend some good players/tutorials that I can watch on youtube to help me get the hang of the game?

Actually, I wouldn't recommend those:

- VS: requires knowledge when it comes to initiation and placement. You're usually in danger due to your ult
- PA: requires last hitting to get farm so that she can be effective
- BH: i think invis gives new players bad habits honestly, i've seen many players use invis simply to stand in team fights to take down stragglers because of a fear of dying.

New people should not initiate with carry heroes unless they have a knowledgeable friend who can help support that carry.

Check out http://www.playdota.com/learn

Tons of information on some of the game's mechanics - beginner and advanced techniques.

Man, Lich is ridiculous. Just put ice armour on everyone, Q the Ursa and watch him die, and time your ultimate well and you do more damage than your carry. O.o

Not to mention keeping every wave a creep down so you can spam your nuke.

There are too many new people playing and it makes finding a decent game hard.
