post #761 of 17117
so for those of you that have played the beta, how different is it from the original?

i know the heros are mostly the same for now but what about the items?

given I quited the game during 08-09 so I'm not sure how much I know about the current game.



I can't play starcraft well cuz I suck at micro, I finished my dragon age series, been playing witcher but im getting nowhere with it, played mass effect for a bit but it didn't quite interest me.

man, I kinda wanna go back to dota already.

UI and mechanics feel less scrubby, that's for sure considering the WC3 engine is like what... 6years+ old? I barely touched DoTa so I can't comment on this entirely because I mainly got into the moba genre through HoN mostly. From playing with my other friends who played dota back in 08-09, they told me that it was just a 'upgraded' version of dota, nothing more, nothing less, except the fact that they added an in-game matchmaking which you didn't have on Garena/B.net. There's still a lot of room for improvement. In terms of skill-level, it is debatable, I've been placed into games where it's inhabited by LoL players who don't know dota mechanics to people who have basic game sense.

the gameplay feels exactly the same as dota 1. pretty much like playing dota 1 with better graphics and a more efficient item system.

Sigh I feel like I'm getting trolled in my games by LoL players...they're definitely not helping out my opinion of LoL players at all. So far it's always a riki who is just trash or a support hero that tries to attempt to go carry, nukes entire creep waves, and gets no chick or wards. ;/

The game still needs room for improvement (since it's beta) but personally I don't feel last hitting is the same as dota 1, or it is just me getting use to last hitting in LoL and not focus on denying.
The items system really help you, it's more of a "newbie-friendly" since the recommend items are pretty much useful and viable (DPS QoP oh yeah) but you actually need time to get a hang of it if you haven't play for so long.

@dezahp: I'm the only person who plays LoL in our 5s premade tongue.gif and I'm doing decent hehe

I'm definitely loving the dota 2 beta right now. It feels a lot like dota 1, and is a big step up coming from HoN. No offense, it wasn't even necessarily that the game is bad, but my friends and I had million problems with the client/engine and the player community. Dota 2 looks and feels better than any similar style game I have played. Right now the game is already pretty balanced, but I wish they would add more agi/strength. It is mainly int heroes right now, lol.

speaking of graphics....Im not even sure if it can be called "better"..... I mean, it simply looks to be a different style, and this "different style" looks A LOT like LoL......

well DotA 2 has a different engine than DotA (wc3 engine) so it looks "shinier, brighter" that's why it looks like LoL smile.gif if you compare HoN and DotA you will see they look the same (dark theme) just my opinion though =D
I don't know if I'm playing tonight guys, my exam is at 8 tomorrow frown.gif damn it I wanna get 20 wins.

ps: @sbuck333: the reason there are so many int champs is because the game was created for the tournament, and the pros don't play a lot of agi carries (AM/Weaver/Drow mostly) they like to use nukers+stunners in their line-up (4 ints 1 agi if possible too)
