    http://blog.dota2.com/

    Bear in mind that there will not be an update next week as we will be hibernating during that time.

    ....

    You will have to bear with the fact that there is no update this week.

    It's really hard to teach new players because DOTA is so complex.
    That's one of the reasons why you just don't want to q with people who are new. It's easier to teach an experienced player if they're doing something wrong, while with newer players your advice might just go straight over their head because they don't know what you mean.

    It's not that they aren't listening, they just literally don't know what to do. If you tell an awful sniper that he should buy lothars, for instance, he's not going to know what that is and he might not know how to even buy it piecemeal. And then he might not know how to use it properly, and he might have built/farmed Sniper rather poorly so lothras wouldn't help much.

    Meanwhile if you tell a more experienced newbie to buy lothars, he's probably farmed & built Sniper up pretty well and he understands what to do. It's like there's a threshold for being new, and there's a cut off point wher eyou just can't help some players.
    Well maybe if you didn't call it a lothars or at least tell them it's the Shadow Blade in the store as it's name, I'm sure they would probably be more likely to buy it rather than going "what the hell is a lothars"

    "It's so hard to teach people who are new to the game" (who probably haven't played Dota 1)

    "Fuck calling it by its Dota 2 shop name, I'm going to confuse the shit out of them."

    Doesn't seem very helpful to me. You could have a really good Dota 2 player who hasn't played Dota 1, but has no idea what the hell a lothars is, so he doesn't build it which more or less handicaps him.

    Valve is trying to keep some of the old names and stuff.

    I think if you write Lothar in item shop search bar it will give you Shadow Blade.

    Those names ain't hard to get used to either. I played very little of old Dota and they don't seem to confuse me.

    Becuas eif someone ever says they are new, they are shunned and abused.
    Actually a lot of people will be nicer if you admit you're bad, etc. I remember when I was still sort of new to this game and said "Sorry guys new to this game, wouldn't mind any tips or anything." The whole game I was given tips and most of all they would try their best to protect me (Walled around me somewhat in teamfights).

    So I am watching Dendi's stream and he is playing Lone Druid and has farmed 7 battle furys. I assume this is not the recommended build. His team has a 60k gold lead.

    Not sure if DOTA is coming out next week, but some folks down in Southeast Asia who put in their beta key have gotten receipts for "DOTA 2 retail," not "DOTA 2 beta."
    So I have no idea.

    Maybe that's because Dota is confirmed to be F2P TF2 style, so all we getting with this beta is early access to full client that is getting updated on regular basis. On top of that Dota 2 Test was added.

    Thats it.

    Both him and the bear had 6 battle furies.

    The other team got completely stomped, it was a 70 minute game, they only got 15 kills.

    That's what the word is on the street. Also, if you go to your Steam store under "DOTA 2," it says that you currently own the game.
    Unlike CS:GO, which won't say that at all.

    You know what's fun?

    When the enemy team has Drow, Huskar, or any other Auto-attack dependent heroes.

    And I build Halberd as Sven.
    I can confirm this.

    I doubt CS:GO will be F2P. Maybe cheap, but not F2P.
