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.

From the one week when i have bought this game i have no comments to say that how good game it is and i will suggest to every one at least play this game once.

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..

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.

    Have fun, do your best, something about Edison's light bulb not working until he stole it.
  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore

    Or walking with my then-fiancee through the night until dawn, just talking
