    I want one!

    I never played DOTA 1 but now with every contest I see asking me what my favourite character was or what my favourite part of DOTA was I really wish I did!

    not entering but just saying that DOTA is really one of the best multiplayer games I've played, really competitive, it takes skills, coordination and tactics to do it right.

    DotA 1 is the only game that really made me rage like hell, especially when I'm playing in public with my friends vs unknown players on the other side of the computer cafe, We would ALL shout during the whole game, trash talking everyone, getting angry on bad plays, ranting why the PCs in the cafe sucks.... etc

    Pros: Really fun, Practices all your gaming skills, its like an all in one game, Very rewarding feeling if you are owning everybody lol
    Cons: Gets addicting really fast, Steep Learning Curve, one of the most Frustrating games(esp. if you have bad games)
    Favorite Hero: Mortred, he crits like hell lol

    If you haven't played DOTA 1, you've already missed alot of fun, but no worries, DOTA 2 is here.

    As a disclaimer to anyone;

    DotA is one of the most complicated games you will ever encounter. It has a ridiculously high learning curve, and mastering it can take years. The community is very hostile towards new players, and at lower levels filled with self-entitled idiots who will blame you for a loss when they spent 30 minutes feeding with a hard carry. It will wrestle you down and break your spirit on a daily basis. People will regularly yell at you over their microphone in foreign languages where all you can translate is one thing--anger. You will encounter some of the worst sportsmanship, and some of the worst people imaginable.

    BUT

    It is one of the best games I have ever played. Even with the complexity, the requirement to learn hundreds of hero and item combinations, and the hostile community, it is one of the most rewarding games I have ever played. A game well played in DotA is one of the most exciting experiences in gaming because the game is so complicated and difficult. Nothing is more exciting than a perfectly executed gank where you land a triple kill, or a Pudge hook thrown into the fog of war at an unsuspecting enemy, or a team fight where your team counters everything the opponents have to throw at them. DotA walks a fine line between exhilarating and enfuriating.

    If you win this ticket and have little or no experience with MOBA's, prepare for the worst, and I hope you have a knowledgable friend to help you, but do not quit after a few games. Play a couple games a week, and I guarantee once you get past the growing pains, you will love this game. There is a built in system that allows you to play against Bots of varying skill levels, and they are planning to add some kind of tutorial mode as soon as they can. There is a "Learn" tab that will show you all the information about items and heroes. There are also hundreds and even thousands of sites with various guides and video guides on how to play the game, each hero, and basic to advanced game mechanics. USE THEM ALL.

    If you need help I will personally assist you because I am so passionate about DotA. I've gotten home from work at 7:30am some days and immediately jumped on Twitch to watch Chinese tournaments for an hour or two before I go to bed, or squeezed in a game or two before or after work.

    This is the first guide any potential DotA player should read: Welcome To DotA, You Suck.

    Good Luck all.

    Motred is a she though :p

    If your sick and tired of p2w f2p games, dota is a good alternative (esp when teaming up with friends). Played dota 1 back in 2007, was great with Sven and all. Just got hooked up to Dota 2 and I just cant stop playing it.

    The "steep" learning curve makes it all the more fun to play and explore the game, esp with the Dota 2 wiki and build guides (dotafire.com) out there. There are many many resources (youtube channels such as dotacinema or e-sport replays from events like "The International 2") to learn from and if you fear flaming and hostility from other "pub" players (ie public matches), then just practice your new hero in the bot mode.

    Everytime I play another f2p game, just get sick of the long and boring grindfests or p2w crap and go back to dota again.

    Not entering btw, this game is pure fun.

    I did this based on your contests, so thanks for the inspiration :)

    I played dota almost 3 years and dota 2 since october and I just can´t stop playing one of the best games i´ve played. I use Mortred aka Phantom Assassin one of my previous games i did 19k/6d i was unstoppable :rockout:

    Maybe we should create a TPU Dota2 Team

    If you guys play dota 2 give me your steam id :)

    Count me in.

    I'm a big fan of league of legends and would really like to try DOTA 2 as I hear a tremendous amount of good things about it and it just looks great.

    So far I have 3 people who want a key.
    Dota 2 is really fun to play and it´s a bit hard at beginning but with some training is pretty easy.

    Well the contest closes tomorrow if anyone still wants a key say it now.
    This is the first of many contests...
    For the people who will win a key probably will receive an email from steam with another key.
