    from one bot game I know just how mobile tinker can actually be with TP boots. Also abusing item actives in his combo. Also pew pew pew!

    currently like Lone Druid a lot right now. quick ring of basilius for me and the bear, then double boots, double OoV, double phase boots (although I should start trying TP boots for Druid while keeping phase for bear), then double bashers. proceed to pwn with stun and root and uber natural tank.
    Messing around.

    I can't wait till they release the 13 other heroes so I can screw around with them.

    The main issue is that LoL is very easy to learn, and people learned champions as they were being released. If you play Dota 2 and you never played Dota 1, first you have to learn about every single champion which is very hard and time consuming because there are very complex champions and different builds unlike in LoL where every champ pretty much has one "OP" commonly used build. A good example is Evoker, very hard champion to play.
    Then you have to learn what to buy and how/when to buy, which is also much harder to learn.

    The gameplay is also completely different, LoL is based on last hitting mobs for quite a few minutes (or half game) while in Dota 2 you have to last hit and deny enemy creeps/towers which requires much more skill. It's also more gank based and not so much last hitting in a passive way.

    That being said, Dota 2 is not newbie friendly and takes a lot of time to get started and i'd say years to master it unless you played Dota 1. In LoL however you can learn everything very fast and somewhat master the game in a few months at most.
    my thought exactly. After the launch of LoL (from DOTA), I was somewhat spoiled with 2 additional summoner spells and the "B"
    Whereas in DOTA 2 you won't get those flash, ingite, cleanse, exhaust, etc and free "B" (Assuming that you aren't prophet or carry tele scroll). LoL abilities are scaled with champion's AP/AD, whereas DOTA 2 abilities output are most likely fixed.

    That being said DOTA 2 is very much enjoyable. I would say harder with creeps denying and takes time to learn all the heroes. But as of now, I'm just hooked with LoL.

    I was thinking before about hosting a fun OnRPG tournament. Most likely during the summer after school is off the radar. Just need to know if people would be interested.

    i'll add on this list:

    Strength Heroes:
    Sven - Has an AOE-stun and two buffs that make him extremely strong. Also has a free battlefury as a passive.
    Sand King - Has an AOE-stun, invis, and a amazing ult that can destroy teams.
    Axe - Has a passive counter that causes him to do a 360 AOE attack around, the only hero to have a taunt in DOTA, a very annoying and damaging DOT spell, and Darius's ult.
    Tidehunder - Range single target slow/armor debuff and an amazing AOE stun/pop-up ultimate.
    Skeleton King - Has only one active skill and it's targeted.
    Nightstalker - One of the best gankers in the game. Single target nuke/slow, longest silence in the game during night phase.
    Undying - He's a zombie who summons more zombies. Has an AOE sap spell that can steal the enemy's STR stat and makes him stronger.

    Agility Heroes:
    I wouldn't recommend new players to learn any carrys starting out. If the other team is competent they will gank you relentlessly and make you hate the game. Although there are some easy to play carry heroes in DOTA, but if you seriously want to learn the ins and outs of the game its better to learn these types of heroes until much later on.

    Intelligence Heroes:
    Crystal Maiden - An AOE-slow, a root, a mana regen passive, and a decent AOE ult.
    Windrunner - Low cooldown skills with amazing utility. Ranged stun that can hit up to two heroes at the same time stunning them for nearly 4 seconds, a line nuke that can snipe enemy heroes and clear creep waves, and finally an amazing escape skill that makes her immune to all physical attacks. Here's a tip though, most players ignore her ult until last as her other spells are just that damn good.
    Orge Magi - A bit of a luck based hero, but has a great nuke and dot, also has Nunu's blood boil from league.
    Lich - Can restore his mana by denying creeps, has a nuke/slow, and has Brand's ult but 100x better.
    Lion - He has two types of CC skills, one amazing single target nuke, and a skill that can drain mana and restore it to himself.

    My advise for new players, pay attention to the map, if you are playing support buy wards and keep the rune spots warded at all times, learn how to pull the jungle creep and do stacks. ALWAYS have a TP scroll with you at all costs, ALWAYS!!!!!! When the game starts buy tangos and a healing salve, tangoes for heal overtime, salves for a large amount of HP when you're extremely low.

    It was already said but I would like to point that out AGAIN-
    You really need to get used to Dota2 and it will get frustrating for sure (!), but once you learned it atleast a bit, you going to have sooooo much fun. I played about 100 matches, my first 50 matches weren't that good and I was most likely feeding and kept dying, but once I learned the heroes, the skills and the items I did way better!

    I was an active League of Legends Player, but now I'm just finding myself getting bored in LoL, because its soooo much simpler than Dota2 is.

    Yeah, the initial learning curve is a big factor to if players will stick around. Coupled with some rude players that get annoyed (which is reasonable as one player can ruin the game, but still they should be nice about it) I really hope that Valve's tutorial system is decent. Already there bot AI is very nice and can provide great practice for new players.

    Pretty easy hero, those who starts the game better try him.
    Outworld Destroyer is also a really easy hero, did 37 kills with him.

    If you want tips, advices, how to improve or even spectate scrims or "how do I get better at X", I can probably help you.

    Here are a few DOTABUFF stats pages from a few scrims.

    Yeah, the community is still going strong. A lot of events and tournaments take place on a regular basis, you can almost always have some tournament in progress.

    A recent example was Beyond the Summit, a group that broadcasts and hosts tournament events, was looking for contributions from the community for a new studio. The $25K goal was met in 24 hours!

    I've been playing dota 2 for like 2 weeks, Im not the greatest at it but im decent enough to understand most about the game. But, meh I want to get invites so I cant send my LoL friends Dota 2... because they still think LoL is a better game, while I keep telling them that Dota is just different and more complex than LoL.

    That's because Dr00d needs a solo lane. He can do fine in a 1vs2 scenario depending on the amtch up, he's great in 1v1 and can even do 1vs3 if you use your bear to pull creeps under your tower and last hit there. Get Tranquils on your hero, Orb of Venom on bear and once you hit 6, you can jungle pretty efficiently with your ult + tranquils. If you want, you can go Radiance into AC or a Maelstorm/Mjollnir + AC.

    He needs a lot of farm and a bit of micro on the bear during fights though.
