[Official] DotA 2 Information and Discussion Thread. - Page 37

post #361 of 17105
I've honestly never messed with mouse dpi settings or anything in my entire life. Maybe I'm stupid but I just don't see it helping or hurting me by changing it so I just use what is comfortable to me.

Edit:

What's everyone thoughts about an OCN.net chat channel? I'll be in it every time I log into Dota 2 if anyone wants to try it out.

At the main menu simply just hit the + icon and scroll down till you hit the OCN.net tab and join it. This will be a nice place for us to get together and talk in game if we aren't grouped.

Also to create the channel if it's not in the list follow these steps.
  • Right click Dota 2 on your Steam library, click Properties, and click Set Launch Options.
  • Type -console
  • The console should auto run when you launch it and the default show/hide is `
  • Type chat_join OCN.net
  • This will join the OCN.net channel, and if not already made, will create it.


Thought this might be something we could use.

You can also find a bunch of different command such as changing the value of the health segments on heroes, right-clicking to deny, and seeing your fps/ping.

What mouse do you guys use to play Dota and at what sensitivity/DPI?
I have never messed with my sensitivity so believe it is at the default. Also, I use a DeathAdder at 3200dpi. After reading a few threads, it seems like most people almost never go over 2000dpi. And even then, they lower their sensitivity. So not only do I use a higher dpi than most, I think my sensitivity is higher as well. I am just curious as to what you guys use.

i use a fingertip/claw grip mouse for rts games, since they require quick wrist flicks. i find it hard to do that with larger mice like the DA and mx518. my abyssus is at 1800 dpi.

Deathadder at a lowered sensitivity. I think mines the 3.5 DA with sensitivity around 6-8.

Mine is right around 2,000. I can adjust it on the fly if I need to via the buttons on my G700. I never adjust it in Dota, though. I don't use mouse acceleration either.

Sounds good to me, I'll try to remember to join it when I'm on.

So what does everyone think about the in game voice chat?

For the most part I haven't heard anyone use it that much but I just had my first game where 3 people were annoying the hell out of me. Our pudge was non-stop calling people "stupid Fs" "dumb *******" "stupid twats." It was the most annoying thing ever.

I actually wish voice chat wasnt implemented because if I want to voice chat, I prefer doing it over skype. Not to mention, I didn't want to mute him because then I might miss mia calls or other information. I just feel skipping over text when someone is raging for no reason to be a lot easier to handle then hearing someone shout in your ear. We still won, but man, that really made me not want to play Dota 2 again. He wasn't even yelling at me.

You can mute people lol. Its on the scoreboard, those diamond shaped things. Click the one next to the player you want to mute. Can't believe you dealt with that all game haha.

Yeah I know I can mute but god forbid I mute and miss an important mia call or something like that. That's why I find dealing with a rager via text is easier to handle then voice. I can easily skim through chat to see if it's important to read, but with voice, you have to suffer or choose to mute and miss info when they aren't *****ing.

Pubs tend to not call a lot of the time anyway. Just keep an eye on the minimap to see if anyone is missing, map awareness is a huge part of Dota. Totally not worth dealing with people like that.

Edit - Really need to get a group of people to play here so you/we don't have to deal with stuff like that etc.
