    Dota 2 launch

    Not sure if anyone here plays dota or mobas at all, but the Dota 2 beta on steam officially ended yesterday and valve is opening the floodgates gradually:

    Been learning the ropes. I understand the concepts need to figure out if it supports a gamepad/controller.

    After playing the game a few days playing tons of co-op bot matches I realize that I really suck at this game. That being said the game is great fun, the dota community from what I have experienced are pretty much all assholes though if you aren't the perfect player.

    Everyone sucks at dota, good players just suck less.

    And yeah, competitive game with unforgiving learning curve, and anonymous strangers being forced to work together seems to breed those attitudes. Games much better with premade teams.

    Yeah learning curve is steep as hell. I am happy enough to play bot matches with people. doubtful i will ever venture any farther than that. The bots on easy are brutal I can't imagine higher settings.

    There's exceptions to everything stated and all tips can be situational, but in general this will give you enough info to play pub matches.

    This game sounds like the most ass kickingly unfun game ever.

    this thread would be more successful if it had video links informing you wtf this game is. it's bad when the only thing i've heard about it is along the lines of what gant said above: insufferably douchey community.

    i've gathered it is called defense of the ancients, leading me to believe it's a multiplayer tower defense game? if not...their marketing team is less effective at messaging than a diapered chimp on speed using an etch-a-sketch to deliver the gospel.

    seems to be more like torchlight

    Here's a video narrated hilariously unintentionally by a dude I call "It's-a-Mario"
