    fun is when you actually win the game you know?

    that's why you play dota, to win.
    Thank god the fun commissioner has arrived to tell us the singular way to have fun in a video game.

    You have fun by winning, so do I, but there are people different than us who can find other ways to have fun. For some simply playing with friends is fun, regardless of the outcome.

    PROTIP: HAVE AT LEAST ONE TP/BoT ON TEAM ALWAYS

    Mid raxx is dead, just killed four people, Clinkz probably has snuck past us. Take bot raxx, they start respawning, Clinkz tries to BD Throne but Lion with a TP says HELL NAW! Clinkz dies, team thrones, GG. Even more satisfying because enemy Tiny was a racist Japanese guy who insulted Americans.

    GG

    Eh, this week's update was pretty disappointing. The main patch was essentially moving the test client changes to the main client and the test patch was mostly just bug fixes.

    Played on the bane character and it is awesome if you played your cards right and don't fuck up. First abilites is awesome against physical creatures and enemy gankers to reduce their strenght to prevent them from fucking you or your teammate up. 2nd ability is your damager ability, Sleep is your breakable stun, useful to get a foot or to lube yourself for raping the enemy, and the 4th ability is a great killer as long as nobody fuck you up with silence, stuns, and or anything that breaks your channel (like tiny, that big bastard).

    I've got my first win, two archers in our team (drow and windrunner), while the enemy got tiny, nightstalker, some mage, and tidehunter, and somebody else.

    I tried to teach a friend of mine the game about a week ago, after he got an invite, but gave up after about 10 minutes because he ignored everything I was saying. Linked him this earlier. Now, if he does play and feeds, my conscience is clear. :I

    Protip: Bane's sleep breaks on attack. If you attack an ally that is sleeping you will be put to sleep. Use this to free allies.

    Protip2: Don't level Enfeeble early.

    Protip3: Don't spend any money for items when you start the game. Get one level of Brain Sap, save for a Void Stone. Bane's mana regen sucks hard.

    I could write a book on how bad he's doing in this bot game I'm watching him in.
    To summarize: My face is a crater from all these facepalms.

    Skeleton King if you like tanky heroes that can deal decent damage + can revive once + have a nice stun.

    Bloodseeker if you like stronger damaging heroes with lower health but can easily regain it by killing creeps and heroes.

    And lich if you like to be a more support player and help out your team.

    I just took an easy hero from Strength, agility, and intelligence. So hopefully that will help.

    Also please go to http://www.playdota.com/ for guides on heroes and to learn more about their abilities. If you are extremely new to DOTA go up the page and there is a video explaining the game in 4 minutes.

    I have never played a game before with such absolute morons on either teams. My team just happen to get the biggest one, but we still won.

    Tinker has a Dagon. He got that after Boots of Travel, which means it was his second item. He kill stole all early game until people were too tanky for him to three shot. 12 of his kills came before the half hour mark.
    Dark Seer was just never useful. He never made a good Vacuum, he never followed it up with an ultie, he would use it with two people around, expecting them to just walk into it. I asked him to buy a Pipe and he bought a Bloodstone and Heart before that Hood he has at the scoreboard.
    Faceless Void was trolling all game. He always got people killed with his ultie. He always ultied when Death Prophet would ultie. He would always catch Sand King in his ultie with everyone else when SK would dive in. Troll, plain and fucking simple. He admitted it at the end of the game too with the ever heavy handed statement of "HOW DID YOU GUYS LOSE THIS GAME WITH ME TROLLING MY TEAM SO HARD?????"
    Natures Prophet jungled. I'm shocked that he doesn't have an A Staff. He rarely turned his Sprout trees into Treants.
    Death Prophet was the only good person on the other team. She was the single factor in why that game took so long, bar Void's trolling.
    Drow sucked. Everything she did was awful, from the items she tried to build to what she did in teamfights.
    Sand King would blow his ultie on one person. He'd use it like it was on fire and he had to get rid of it somehow.
    Bane's items are retarded. Besides that he didn't do much wrong.
