    I was playing Lina and just minding my own business bot, farming, defending, my score was 1/1/0.

    Then our DK starts screaming at me because I was just sitting there and says I'm shit.

    Then he goes 1v5 because he had Immortality and makes us lose the game

    just lol

    In 33 min too.

    Not to kill the feel, but with the team they were against and how fed Riki and BH are, if they lost it would have been a travesty.

    just decided to start playing this since i got it ages ago, basically resulted in: oh god everyone is angry at me and i keep getting killed.

    so basically my question is how good should you be before hopping into a server? i want to avoid giving another Dota player a nervous breakdown.

    i haven't even touched online versus players yet, i've been doing co-op vs ai this whole time. the confusing part is that you should, in no way, compare bots to actual players because bots can both be shittier or better than a player could be.

    I played alot of LoL before I came to Dota, I recommend playing LoL for a while before jumping into Dota until you get hang of the common mechanics.

    Eh that just wastes time learning about their heroes and picking up bad habits. It's best to read guides, play with bots, and/or play with a friend that knows what he is doing.

    I played LoL before Dota and I don't recommend it. While most of the gameplay is the same, they are very different.

    Edited:

    Plus it doesn't teach you the different play style and heroes in Dota.

    Because its 100% direct port of all abilities, items and heroes. The only thing changing is engine and team, as Icefrog has joined Valve, thus Valve is now take care of Dota 2.

    While fresh populus is always nice, bringing much needed vitality into a game where new ideas and creative thinking mean a lot, for Beta purposes they need people who will spot even the slightest differences between proper mechanics and bugged mechanics.

    People often say in-game "This ability shouldn't work that way, it doesn't so in Dota 1!". Would a freshmen know, for example, that Spirit Breaker's Illusions shouldn't benefit from his Greater Bash Ability ? Or what if "Power threads switching" wouldn't for work for some reason, would new people even know about Power Threads switching in order to gain mana/hp ?

    + Dota was/is the most popular map/mod in Warcraft III's multiplayer. Warcraft III is superb game, you dare to say you didn't play it? If so, then I thinking not stumbling across Dota while browsing for some X Hero Siege is rather hard.

    Yeah thats something common in Dota 2 games if the carry keeps up his farm while getting kills.

    So I just heard Blizzard announced a new f2p game. Blizzard DOTA. Atleast, someone told me.
    Can anyone confirm if it's real, and if it is, is this why they started being dicks because Valve copyrighted DOTA?
