its pretty essential to know what the heros can do and what which items can do, skills also somewhat important although a little more forgiveness in this area as you can skill heros differently and still do well. the map you should probably memorize, at first glance it may look complicated but its actually very simple... granted advanced knowledge of the map dynamics may help in higher tier play.

i wouldnt imagine memorizing everything would be a good way to learn, maybe play some bot games to learn the core items/heros while you learn the map, then just start on the MMing, as the people you are going to be playing with in the very low mmr are probably worse than you anyways... assuming you have more than a few active braincells.

Thanks! Appreciate it. I do remember quite some hero from the wiki though. From what I heard stun is one of the most important element in game right?

BTW does the latency affect a lot in DOTA 2? I'm on wireless connection so latency is going to be really high for server outside my country. In TF2 I get like 400 ping for US/EU server, and 80-100 ping for local server.

I wouldn't worry about memorizing stuff right off of the bat, that takes the fun out of the game. It is just going to take time and experience to learn what each hero can do and what you should be doing yourself. You should probably try a couple of games with bots first to get a feel for it before jumping into matchmaking, and then when you do join MM listen to your allies if it appears they know what they are talking about. Also you should be fine if you can manage 150 or lower ping. Maybe even 200.

Stun is indeed very important. People generally make sure they have at least a couple of stuns on their team when picking heroes. Hope this helps! smile.gif

Well im no pro im Dota 2 but i might have some tips to help you start off if its your 1st time playing dota , the most important thing i can tell you is do not play a carry and play a support , maybe watch some videos on youtube to help yourself out ? Watch videos on heros that you are keen on playing to learn alil bit more on them . And if you are going to play a support buy wards and a courier to help your team . After alil while you will get the hang of it and can move on to carries and thats where all the fun begins biggrin.gif

Agree for the most part except where you said carries is where the fun begins. I would argue the opposite haha. Support heroes are more fun, IMO. That is just preference though.

Last couple of games I've been playing Jakiro, after the buff he feels soooo OP, is fairly tanky early game and his ice path just reeks havoc.

I usually solo queue so having a support on the team is usually the biggest difference I find to winning games (for some reason most people want to pick a carry.....)
