[Official] DotA 2 Information and Discussion Thread. - Page 6

post #51 of 17115
Minor update. Apparently there will indeed be a cosmetic store so you can change what your hero(es) are wearing. Not going to be like LoL in which you buy heroes, its just for cosmetics.

Also there appears to be a way in which you can download DotA 2 and watch replays without a key. You can't play the game but from what I've read you can mess around with the GUI and check out replays. I don't know what you have to do to get it and even if I did I wouldn't post directions here.

yeah i always tell my friend that it would be bad ass if you could actually see a cosmetic change whenever you buy items for your character. glad to see they added it in dota 2.

Yeah its cool I guess, just not sure how I feel about spending actual money for that stuff. Apparently there is a similar system in TF2 that is pretty popular so I imagine it will work out fine in Dota 2.

Welcome to OCN and this thread! I remember hearing about that SC2 DotA-based map but never bothered to check it out. It has nothing to do with IceFrog or the real DotA so I was like meh. Is it any good? Why were you annoyed with it?

I play DotACash games all the time, maybe I'll see you around. smile.gif

I sent IceFrog a PM hoping to get a key. Not holding my breath on that one though.

I wish they would just start sending out keys instead of making us run around, sign up for these sites, and subscribe to their Youtube/livestreams just for a 1 in 1000 chance to get a key in a contest.

As far as I know, I think every key is bindable to whatever you want.

I personally go with WASD to move the camera, numbers for skills, then the keys surrounding WASD for items and whatnot.

Yeah it kinda sucks to go through that song and dance just for a really slim chance at winning a key. It is rumored that there is going to be a large key giveaway in the near future though.

You can assign every ability and item slot to any key on your keyboard. Not sure if the number pad is still the default but you can change it regardless.

Honestly I don't get how people can scroll the camera by moving the mouse to the edge of the screen. By having camera as WASD, I can keep the cursor close to center screen or my hero should I need to quickly self cast an ability or run into the enemy and need to fight. I don't ever need to scroll my mouse from the edges or corners back to center since my mouse is always near center.

Personal preference I guess.
