[Official] DotA 2 Information and Discussion Thread. - Page 60

post #591 of 17107
Na'ix has been added to Dota 2! Perhaps a hero that can compete with or at least help contain Antimage.

N’aix, the Lifestealer joins us in today’s update. He’s the one hero capable of hiding inside your own allied heroes and jumping out for a big surprise! In this update you will find various bug fixes, including the infinite wild axes that some of you couldn’t resist using while we were gone. We have also made a change that should resolve a lot of the visual bugs and crashes that happen when running fullscreen (and especially when alt-tabbing).

For our international testers, we have added IME support for better text input handling. Please let us know how this is working. We are also ramping up our leaver detection sensitivity, which results in leavers being temporarily placed in a separate matchmaking pool.

If you haven’t signed up for Dota 2 yet, its not too late! We are continuing to send invitations out each day at an increasing pace. You need to have a Steam account first and then fill out this survey.

You can find Today’s changelog here.

After so much of Dota 1, Dota 2 feels so messy! So many things happening, so many animations and everything is kinda small. Clicking on something is such pain.

Also, guys, can you share what keys you use for abilities? smile.gif Can't decide. I currently have:

Ability 1: W
Ability 2: E
Ability 3: R
Ultimate: T

Ability 4: D
Ability 5: F

Bag slot 1: G
Bag slot 2: B

quited dota for ~3 years, I'm *kind of* looking forward to dota 2

wish i can get into beta for some warm up though, get back my touch etc.

I also doubt if dota 2 will ever get a player base even remotely as big as war3 dota's. After all its a stand alone game and its gonna cost extra money. I mean if you pay for a copy of war3 and come across dota, you can try it and then go back to whatever else you play if you don't like it. For dota 2, you can't do that.

i disagree. give it time, and dota 2 will catch up and surpass dota 1. wc3 dota has been around for what, 7-8 years? plus, dota 1 is pretty much dead development wise anyway. people will start switching over once they see the dota 2 community and the game itself, hero count, items, growing larger, and the dota 1 community remaining stagnant. dota 2 is where the dota/moba genre is headed. smile.gif

you are correct

but that shift is due to the slow and natural degradation of dota 1 because of War3, not because of the sheer awesomeness of the new game.

It's just like father and son. Even if the father is a body trainer and the son is a lazy ass sitting at home playing video games all day. It won't matter, some day, that kid's gonna be physically stronger than his dad because of how metabolism works.

I'm not saying Dota 2 is gonna be that lazy ass son, I'm merely saying it slowly taking over dota 1's player base doesn't mean it's gonna get as successful as dota 1 once was

I recommend three things. Check out the guide for beginners in the below link, watch a bunch of games, and play games with bots so you can get used to the mechanics and get a feel for the game. Playdota.com has everything you could want in terms of Dota and is a great place to start. smile.gif

Right now I'm using z x c v for abilities and I have the 6 item slots binded to my various mouse buttons. (G700) I've got to tweak it a bit more but I like it. A lot of people like to use alt+q w a s z x for items too.

Respectfully disagree. I'm assuming that Dota 2 is going to be relatively cheap, like $30 or something like that and it is being made by one of the best video game companies out there. It is no longer restrained by the Warcraft III engine, has additional features and mechanics, and looks amazing in comparison to Dota 1. There is already something like 10,000 players online at any given time and it is just in beta. Steam is awesome too.

Still hoping for PlayDota to pick me so I can give an extra key away though thumb.gif

I created a Steam account but can't access the survey. Any ideas?
