You can change this now in User CP.
This thread is ringing off an alarm in my head.
Don't we have a rule against DotA threads? If not then my bad.

There are rules against making threads related to DOTA, or at least there was. Unless this has changed expect this thread to be deleted in due time.

Curious what "Rage" is.

Always thought banning the discussion of DotA was silly.

Hope the 2nd one comes out smoothly next year.

I can honestly say I hated DotA, not so much the game, but the community withen Wc3. The public games weren't noob friendly at all, if you even tried to play you would get flame and hate up the ass for one death, then after that black listed. *sigh* I play League of Legends now and Love it, and im fairly good in my opinion, I wouldn't have been able to even see my potential in DotA.

I agree. I used to be a pretty avid DotA player, but now I play LoL and love it. However, I do like some of the DotA heroes more than most of the LoL champions.

I got into the Dota 2 beta recently and it's awesome! Definitely a lot better than league :)

I know exactly what you mean. Totally agree with Sajin and tommerbob.

I played DotA for 3 years, and then after about a week of playing LoL i just couldn't turn back to DotA. It just felt so limited :/

Personally, "BLIZZARD DotA" or "DOTA 2" is going to fail imo. But sure, I'l give it a try when it's released.

DotA is not noob friendly at all. Even the Bots wont give you a chance :p

Unfortunately whenever I log into w3 nowdays, it is always the most played map and I commonly hear the expression "yeah i just logged into dota" -_- sigh.

But yeah, LoL > DotA and HoN in waaay too many ways.

Do any of you play on the NA server?
Add me, InflictedchaoS - something like 1100+ wins last time I played.
And the same Nick if any of you are BloodLine Champions players.

So I suppose since we're not talking about the map...

The community in DotA 2 is a lot better than in <itthatshallnotbenamed>. But you're right, it's not very noob-friendly. HoN is even more elitist. They only accept the best, so unfortunately, if you don't already know how to play, it's tough.

LoL is fine I guess, but it could be improved upon a lot in my opinion. Also, it is too easy, ^^

Well, DotA has always been a game centered on pure competition, so a certain amount of trash-talk and "hate" is to be expected. The problem with the game was that the learning curve was pretty steady and to win a dota game, you need to win as a team, so "noobs" were hated during the game for they gave their team a loss almost automatically.

That can be fixed with quick and efficient tutorials and a user-friendly interface, which DotA 2 is achieving quite well.

I think this thread should focus more on DotA 2 / LoL / HoN than the 8-years old, over-discussed, DotA 1.

Explains their drop of sales, I can't wait till it crashes and burns.

Yes, lower level games are noob-friendly for those who are new to the game and the style of game.
It ranks you in games according to your level. So people complaining that the game is too easy, have not played it at the competitive level that it can be, similar to the level of similar games. The only difference is LoL gives new players that opportunity to play with other players of their skill level without being trash talked.

I've played all of the above mentioned games, and LoL still has the best community. And the game acknowledge the input of the players. Their suggestions and critism, adjusting the game to suit the players. The fan-base is huge, much bigger than any other game of the style.

This reminds me of the common mistake of people calling it DotA instead of DotA Alstars..

    You would probably have to take a loan to get the Rice cert it is like 14l
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
