You can buy into the beta, it will be a free to play game once released. If it was released why are they still sending out beta invites lol

I tried to play online but just couldnt get it

What are we supposed to be doing?

The greeveling, ok why would you want to change to a greeveling when you can be a hero?

As soon as I went near an enemy they just killed me straight away with like 1 hit so what is the point of the match?

They are selling "early access to dota2 with lots of cosmetic bundles."

Dota 2 will be a free to play once released and it wont have any "pay to win" elements.

This is not a game you will be able to understand just by playing once or twice and wont be able to reach "mid skilled" level before ~300 to 500 games. Learning curve is more steep than any other games.

Yet whenever I decide to play I'm left looking at the screen for five minutes and no games are found :(

So far I've only played one game which despite half the team I was on leaving we won but I did enjoy it

I think it's because most players aren't in the low skill bracket. If you just start to play, you'll be able to find a match right away but after awhile it'll take longer. Even at my level, it can take as long as 5 minutes to find a match.

How do you lock the camera on the hero?

So I don't have to worry about the camera - I couldn't figure it out. It Leage of Legends there is a button for that on the interface and keyboard - 'c' I believe - what is the equivalent in DOTA 2?

I went though the controls couldn't figure it out for some reason -.-

Also the store items are not sortable or is it just me?

You can bind that to a key with the following command (where X/Y = any key):

bind "X" "dota_camera_lock 1"
bind "Y" "dota_camera_lock 0"

I missed this game's release and now I'm addicted to it.

 

I think it's cheesy what Valve's done, but since the game is free, I have no complaints.

 

I'll be playing it till Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm comes out.

 

PM me if you want to team up or just chat. :)

I've put so many hours into it (close to 1,800). What do you mean by "cheesy"?

Am I the only one who gets all excited whenever I see a thread about Dota 2, but only for the split second where I mistake it for Day of the Tentacle 2?

So with Diretide given, Dota 2 has hit a new peak record of 702k players and is currently sitting at 666k.

 

Meanwhile TF2 sits at second most played on Steam with only 70k.

how's it cheesy, atleast say why. Dota2 is far from cheesy, its competitive, grueling, action packed, exciting and involves flexible skill caps ... sure. Cheesy, not so much. Also, the new earth and ember spirits are fun to play, i've had more success with ember, doing -> phase, ring of aquila, drums, b.fury, desolator. It solves two problems : mana and damage spread. Also mjjilnor is really good on that hero, I did the sleight of fist with multiple chain lightnings, so good. I've yet to try and get linkens on him, it would solve alot of problems.

 

also yes add me, 'Im keen to jam with some neowin folk i'm ' Kaa-ching' :D
