The Dota 2 Thread

Vellu

Real eyes realize real lies.
Thanks for that info, Sim! Maybe the most different thing between Dota 2 and LoL is the strenght champions have. In LoL's scale every Dota 2 champ is OP, because the ranges are higher, the damages are higher and usually everything is a lot faster. I have to get used to that.

Yes but at the same time that means the enemy team is stronger as well. The biggest difference between LoL and DotA is how much DotA emphasizes on positioning. Many games you think you have won can be lost due to your team being caught out at the wrong time, causing a big shift in the game. That's why this game can be so exciting! :D

It sounds like you need to play around a bit with the heroes. In LoL the heroes do not have as cut roles as to what they are best at doing. If you want to add me on steam ([email protected], username Whitesock!) and play I can help you get your feet on the ground and start off well.

Is riding a roller coaster...Wee!
It took me a good 5 games to get used to the changed grafics. Although i like it better. I wish things had sharper edges, and more realistic. but it has a nice theme.

Currently Level 2 as of last night. :)

Hm, a lot of people are playing both SC2 and Dota 2 I'm sure. Me, for example, I play and like SC2 but I didn't buy HotS but Dota 2 is free so it's easy to just continue playing.

This was the biggest e-sports tournament in history. 2 million dollar prize pool.
Crazy games. Congratulations to Alliance.

Ha, those clutch ults by S4 helped them so much. Yeah, I was so sad when it happened twice for Na'Vi getting their tp's interrupted.

After XBOCT made a double kill versus 4 people on level one and a third one was left on 1 hit. I kind of wanted Alliance to lose.

I also don't really like Loda too much. Anyways, good games!

Ps: What immortal did you get? Did you unlock all the courier styles?
I got the abbadon one, Have all styles except the purple crab (have regular one) with almost full effect (10 more games to watch)

Overall I will miss the bonus battle points.

$2.8 M, actually :p

SC2 is part of an old-school business model where you release expansion sets and expect to sell copies of video games for dozens of $ a piece. I think that Riot Games and Valve (and numerous other gaming companies promoting free games) have showed us that the way to go popular is by making free games with customization, which cost $.

And SC2's competitive edge is centered around the 1v1 match-up, whereas the more popular sports have shown us that viewers prefer team games. (Soccer, football, baseball, Hockey, etc.)

Team games are simply more complex as not only is individual skill important as well as strategy, but the players also need good coordination and execution together to win.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.

    I found out you can't delete nor hide redirect links to existing threads. It will just stay there. I have no choice now but to start moving thread redirects to News Archive.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is not the way that it works for me I can delete redirects you just have to hit refresh sometimes big deletes will take a while as long as moves\
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You don't have to do that you can just leave stuff there in headline news for up to a year it was already down to like 8 months there is no rush.
