Its gonna be a LONG time before I even would attempt playing with other people.

You should try playing co-op bot games at least, play with someone who's willing to teach you. You can learn much faster that way.

True but it should help. There should be an option to play only with people in your region imo.

You'll get used to the controls, you should set hotkeys for your abilities and items so that they are the same for every hero. For example my hero abilities hotkeys z x c v and I have the item slots bound to my mouse buttons. You only have to change it once in the settings and it will apply to all heroes.

There is indeed a huge learning curve, probably the biggest of all video games. Using ranged heroes for a while probably isn't a bad idea and don't be too afraid to jump into matchmaking games. You'll be matched with players of equal skill.

There are a lot of resources out there so you an learn the basics and even advanced stuff if you want. Playdota.com is great. The guides there were designed for Dota 1 but the games are exactly the same so don't let that throw you off. Every hero, item, building, and even the trees are all the same. Hope this helps!

I just got into to this and I'll have to admit, the learning curve is steep but not too steep. Couple players were telling me that I was bad at the game but I just had to reiterate that I only began playing it. Wasn't playing against others tho, just playing with bots, which is still difficult for noobs I suppose. All in all, I think it's good, just have to learn of the items to buy.

That is pretty dumb, calling people bad when you're playing against bots lol. I'm sure they are bad themselves.

I can understand everyone's concern


but there are other reasons not to limit it like that. thats why the custom map scene of starcraft 2 southeast asia(SEA) region was completely died, plus people can't play with either oversea friends, that's why SC2 did finally open up the portal to let them play on US. If you buy a copy of SEA region, you actually get a free US region account.

But yes, in a 5v5 game that is dota, the impact will be bigger because I doubt anyone has 9 friends to occupy the entire game.

obviously I dont have this problem since I understand english anyway, I just don't dislike these foreign guys as much, it's probably because the ones I met weren't exceptionally bad players in any way. I have a bigger problem with whiny kids that's anti-teamwork and calling names everywhere.

Regarding controls it really depends. I could never go back to WC3 Dota now f.e

My controls are something like this

Skills [1] - 1 , [2] - 2 , [3] - 3 , [ult] - 4, addition skills Q/F
Items , TAB-E-5-X-C , 6th default as i rarely need more than 3-4 usable item slots.
Courier - Mouse 5
Stop - Mouse 4

Melee hereos aren't tanky enough to forgo making big mistakes, mistakes you don't make as ranged.

I agree when dealing with early game, ranged just has such a huge advantage early game at being able keeping melee hero's out and unable to last hit well. Which is usually why when I do play a melee its something that can get life steal as a early item and jungle as much as possible... I hate beyond any thing else overly aggressive ranged heroes (especially supports) during the early game-> I'm not talking about denies, but blowing all their mana before 3 to try kill a non-carry and then running to tower and mana potting for ages to try and come back an do it again.

that seems like a fairly complicated setup... out side of the skills section 1-4...

I have a G13 so my little Joystic is 1/2/3/4 and 5 is the little button under it. Space is above it (I use space to hold position) abilities are q w e r t y, q->r standard t and y for the extra abilities (rubric). 6 is the same, but I don't use as none active items go in this slot (Treads if I don't want them switching attributes, vlads, van guard, Battle Furry, etc)
