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.

oh also play with AI for your first 50 games.

Look at the Steam stats for Dota 2. It's almost at a peak of 250K players. :|

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?

Better late than never :)

In console type:
dota_camera_lock 1
0 to disable

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"
