A new thread for posting anything about the game Dota 2 rather than cluttering up Binerexis's poor thread.

No you have to be invited atm as it is a closed beta, but you don;t need any other kind of game. It isn't a 'mod'.

Having a load of fun with this game.
I feel sorry for everyone that is play League of Legends because they don't know what they're missing, especially when a couple of us from UKCS get together and start destroying faces :D

Am starting to wonder how many of us are playing this game and wondering if we could try and arrange a 5v5 using everyone from UKCS :D

Edit: Also, Wizav is too good at this game :/

19 people on my friends list play :(

If tribes wasn't scratching an itch I'd be positively lunatic lol

Played HoN for a while in the beta ages ago then stopped, only just seen it's free to play with priveleges for people who bought it so I'll be continuing to avoid that. Might have to try LoL even if most of the players seem like.... phalluses to put it lightly.

One day....
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

31 here.
Had a quick look through them to see how many was UKCS members, I counted about 14 including me so it could be possible to try and arrange a game some day. Might be a bit unfair because not everyone on that list has much game time or I know personally they're pretty new to the game which is just fresh meat to some people :<
Could be fun nether the less :D

Also, How the hell do people play Beastmaster. Trying to control 3 entities at the same time was so mind-boggling when they all have completely different characteristics that it completely thew me.
I had about 3 deaths in lane because I was trying to work out how to make it easy to select what I need...

I really want to learn how to play invoker properly , was watching some videos on youtube and some people can cast upto 10 spells during a single half a minute team fight and make good use of them to boot, It's almost like having an extra 3 heroes on the team, amazing hero once he's mastered.

deafening blast > meteor > emp > summon minions > cold snap carry > cast alacrity on your own carry > Ice wall > sun strike/tornado any heroes on low hp trying to get away. If it that fails cast ghost walk, escape unharmed and try again in 30 seconds :cheers:

Wonder how many invoker games it takes to even half decently pull something like that off :scratch:

Who do I have to murder to get a key for this ? I had signed up since the International, filled in that survey and yet to sniff even a chance at the game.
If you guys hear of a chance ( without me needing to give out all my details to some random page , preferably ) to nab a key gimme a yell please.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Same boat as you Flare, think Screweh and Pope took the only keys for Wales. Gits.

Won't be happy with DOTA2 until I have techies again.

Clearly the best character in the game.

Strongest pub hero by far is Centaur Warchief.

Mid game you can easily have 2500+ hp with a hood and plate mail which gives you an EHP of close to 5000 health. On top of that whenever a hero attacks you they take 50+ damage, Which means most of the heroes in the game kill themselves faster than they kill you unless they get life leech and a good base damage and then you just get a blade mail :cheers:

It's so funny watching heroes gank you, hit you and realise they just did more damage to themselves and run off then lina comes and ulti's you and your still on 80% hp :lol:

I dont know, strong against people that wont intentionally counter him in the same way stealth heroes are. Necrolyte is a ridiculous counter to him, as is naix, and they will be able to kill you far before you have the hood and blademail to resist them.
