    No love for DOTA II?

    Recently got myself into the DOTA II beta, seriously enjoying it. I joined the edugeek Steam group not long ago, just wondered who (if anyone) plays it?

    I dabble, about 8 hours played in total, but I only really do bot fights. I'd get smooshed against players :P

    Erugh, I hated LoL.. The characters I tried just seemed, not very good, and the game didn't have much to it.
    That and the "you-have-to-swap-characters-all-the-time(unless you buy one)" seemed to give players an advantage, in that they had quite obviously purchased a hero and always played that one class.
    Maybe I was just playing it wrong.. Either way, I get more enjoyment from DOTA.

    Mostly archers, started off as Drow Ranger but now it's Clinkz. Not a massive fan of MoBAs by the looks of things, this is my first.

    Clinkz gets pretty broken if you play him right, one of my buddies plays Bounty Hunter or Clinkz, and I've seen him kick some serious ass as both.

    Drow Ranger's a very good starter for new players, from what I hear. Specifically have never chosen her for that reason alone. I'm a douche like that.
    Wind... somethingorother I think (The ginger archer) is a nice all-rounder from what I've been told, too, haven't tried yet, though.

    MoBA's are only good if you have some friends to play with. Voice chat and friends are a must. Voice chat because typing sucks, friends because nobody likes being yelled at for doing something wrong, or losing in general.

    Yeah, I've played as all three, really didn't like Windrunner though.

    I didn't do TOO bad playing with a few friends, but we only played 2/3 games. Was using Drow at the time, haven't used Clinkz against people yet.

    Is anybody looking to try Dota 2 or know somebody who is?

    I've got 8 keys in my inventory and as they're so easy to get hold of now, I can't trade them for anything! Free to good homes!

    I've given away, I think three, but I still have, I think, five more. So same offer applies from me. Look for Garacesh in the edugeek group.

    I recently gave about 6 away.. they gave me another 6 last night! Taking me back up to 13. So my stocks have been refilled.

    Shame they're not worth anything anymore

    Steam dumped five of them in my inventory yesterday. The annoying things are taking up so much space I might randomly spam my friends list with them. Grrrr!
