Unless you've been under a rock, iG beat Na'Vi in the finals of the International. And I have to say, as a proficient League player and a low-level DotA player, watching the International I now feel that DotA 2 is more entertaining to watch and harder to master.

Overall I think as a support the only think i could have done better was buy wards, but I didn't because they basically would have been for myself early game, laning mid when you can't communicate with your team. And into late game it felt like the enemy team was never in the jungle (I *may* be wrong) and we were moving purely off... "body language?" I guess if you could call it that, and pings.

We're playing 4v5 since Pant never connects.
Nevertheless we keep up the fight, getting the upper hand in most team fights and keeping a steady 10 points ahead.

40 in, a fight breaks at their 3rd bot tower. They win it but I manage to escape when suddenly

I try to restart the client and it says the server is unavailable.

League of Legends is free, super easy to get into, and full of the whiniest, most mean-spirited bitches you'll ever find in an online game community.

Or DotA 2 if you want to pay for a game only to quit it 5 minutes in because you can't figure out what the fuck you're supposed to do.
>> No. 163360
DotA 2 is free, but you can buy a beta invite that includes bundle bonuses. It's 30$ and you get additional one you can send to friend I think. Pretty expensive but it might be worth it so check it out.

Anyways, all of you fill up the DotA 2 beta survey and wait for a key (that may take a long while to arrive).
Meanwhile, download LoL and get the hang of the game, that will also take a while.

One thing to remember is while the games may seem like carbon copy of each other and while they share many similar traits, their feel and style are completely different. Personally I find DotA 2 more dynamic and hard but I enjoy both games a lot.

LoL community is terrible the asshole to awesome ratio is 100:1
DotA 2, as far as I can tell, is better. I've seen a lot less assholes but than again I played a whole lot more LoL.

What's a good key binding layout for DotA2?
I bind my items to 1-6 because that's what LoL did and it worked for me.
Now micromanaging units became a pain, and I kinda like playing Beastmaster.

Well... I have Items on 1-6, like you. My skills are QWERT and my ulti on Y. Attack Move is X and select hero/center hero is Space Bar. I have voice chat on V, level up stats on C, and select all other units on Z. Finally I have Courier on O and shop on P.

Welcome to the MOBA community... Yeah and don't recommend randoming, just find a few heros you like and play them til your comfortable with the game. And this is not League, so boots, 3 health pots doesn't work.
>> No. 163973
Randoming is just how I'm going to find the heroes I like to play. I can't know till I try 'em right?

Well there's also the fact that I'm good at SMNC going into the equation. But I do want to branch into other ones.
Is it possible to set up a Player Match or is it all Ranked or whatever? I think a game with the guys from +4 would be fun and a lot less intense in pressure and attitude.

Dota2 has so many leavers , I only got to play 1 game out of 6 yesterday without someone leaving early.
>> No. 164025
I think it's because Valve's fans mostly play FPS'es, where ragequitting is normal. They're not all used to MOBA's (or a lot of the genres that have TF2 tie-ins- I know a lot of people who forked down cash on the Total War total pack, back when it was $80+, and never played any of the games), unfortunately.

I'm still waiting for the tutorial mode when the game goes out of beta so I don't act like an asshat.
>> No. 164049
You can't expect people to have the "honor" of playing a losing game.
In a way, I can see defending them. It is just a game, and if you're not having fun why continue playing a game? But there's also the obvious points as to why you should continue playing. The chance to come back, the experience of learning from your mistakes and trying to improve, the netiquette, and so on.

I also learned yesterday that going random gives you more money at the start of the game. Enough to buy a courier and more. So that's what I've been doing and so far so I've been on winning teams each time and discovering new characters.
>> No. 164210
I admit part of the appeal of DoTA for me is all of the TF2/Half-Life references. S'pecially when Lich says "POOTIS".

I wonder if that was Valve's idea, or Gary Schwartz just ad-libbed it. He's actually a pretty funny guy on his own, judging from the "Meet The Sandvich" outtakes.

It's premise is entirely identical to these other games. Choose a character, guide the mobs, kill enemy mobs, upgrade character, kill other players, destroy the opposition's [valuable static object].

The biggest (and it's quite big) difference is that MNC is FPS. The premise is that of a game show meets sport, but gameplay-wise, you're getting the same thing as the rest.

I'd try to lure you out to DotA 2 but Its hard to sink time into more than one Tower Pusher and SMNC really deserves a solid player base.

How crowded are the servers nowadays?
>> No. 165907
It probably wouldn't work anyways.

How full is SMNC? Imagine the bottom of the chip bags after a 6 hour LAN party. Should be an accurate visual for how desolate the game is. It hit STEAM with some TF2 hats and everyone went wild for 'em. Then soon enough they all went back and left the few people playing before and the even fewer stragglers who liked it and abstained from the exodus back into the Holy Lands of Team Fortress.

Queues can take anywhere from a few minutes to over 20 and, from personal experience, it seems there's always at least one person who drops while connecting, plus the ones who may drop from getting beat.

I don't know what it is about the game, but it's like some kind of destined force of player hemorrhage and destitution.

But man, when you're playing. There's nothing like it. The announcers, the atmosphere of the hinted at fiction of the world, SMASH TV style gladitorial arenas wherein athletes, robots, animals, and clones compete for cash and marketing endorsement deals. It's goofy normalized blood-sport of an unseen future Earth and it's fun as hell.

Blinding effects aren't available on any weapons any of my Mercs have, but EVERYONE else has them all the time

Froggy's Wave Splash has fullscreen range, cooldown by the time you're out of the stun it puts you in, but why would he use that when he can tornado for a constant tick. It's guaranteed that running into Froggy is half your health gone and that's IF you can get away after the stunlock
