So who plays Dota 2 on here? I just started, been trying to read/watch every newbie guide I can find to understand the basics of the game. So many chars....kind of confusing. But I do like it.
If anyone is looking to play with me, send me your Steam info via PM.
What's striking is the balance all these heroes seem to have whenever you team up to go into battle.
I don't think I have played a game that emphasizes "team" as being the indicator of your success or failure. Every act and thought you do in game has to be in consideration of your team as a whole, always. If I die in game, that's going to put my team at a significant disadvantage (I can't level up my own character when I'm dead, and I'm missing out on accruing gold, defending towers, etc) and also strengthen the opposing team.
Last game I was in, some guy was ganking all in the middle lane and got his level up to 22 while I'm still at 11, crazy. That guy ended up carrying us all the way to the end.
I just hate playing as weaker characters during the laning phase, cause I kind of like to jungle a bit too but if I'm too weak I don't stand a chance against those enemies.
Otherwise it's a blast, deep game for sure. I like the ability someone else can coach you.
