I just spent basically the entire day cleaning the upstairs of our house and my room and fell asleep and just woke up. I have nothing to do since it's already too late to go out especially when none of my friends want to pick up my phone calls. I don't mind helping you out and give you a few pointers.

edit: let me know if you have vent because that'd be a lot easier

Hey guys, are there any item name changes in the shop? I was also wondering if the suggested items are actually good and should be used in DotA 2? Thanks! Hope Valve sends me a key for Christmas.

Everything is basically the same. The suggested items are somewhat decent and are good for "noobs" which is basically the purpose of recommended items lol.

Int heroes which are generally support are the most easiest to start the game with. Lich, Shadow Shaman, Dazzle, and Warlock are really strong support heroes. There's a lot of aspects of the game that doesn't include just learning the characters that you need to learn and grasp. ie: warding, stacking creeps, pulling creeps, counter warding, dust/blue wards, last hitting/denying, etc

It really is lol. When I first started playing, I actually wanted to learn the game and not just play however I want to play cause I generally really hate losing games. Took me about I think 3-4 weeks to really get a good grasp of the entire game. Don't worry about if you come across people who get raged at you whenever you're playing solo. Just tough it out and you'll eventually get the hang of things.

Well int heroes in LoL would be AP champs. Support/mage units like Lux, Morgana, etc. Last hitting is hitting creeps when they are on very low hp in order to get some creep kills without pushing the lane into enemy territory. Pushing lanes is done by auto-attacking enemy creeps. Denying is done by hitting 'a' and clicking on a friendly creep when it is on low HP to stop the enemy hero from getting gold. You can also deny friendly turrets on low hp for the same reason as above. Warding and counter-warding is similar to LoL. Runes are found in the river and spawn every two minutes. These are helpful for ganking. That concludes my knowledge of LoL compared to DotA haha. When it comes to items or champs don't ask me as I am still new to those aspects lol.
