DOTA 2

Post by Cephas » May 9th, 2014, 1:16 pm

Hey guys, Just wanted to talk a little bit about DOTA 2.


Image

So for a time when I could not play LoL I picked up an early beta key to the game called dota 2, I heard of dota (The original) and thought it would be like LoL.

And it suprisingly wasn't like LoL it's learning curve was rough and way less forgiving of your mistakes.

I played over 400 hours before picking back up LoL and then i decided to stop playing DOTA 2, but I play it every so often and if anyone else would like to start playing this even as a for fun game on the side i think that'd be good, I have never seen another christian clan have a spot for DOTA2 then again i could be blind.

Image

So I was thinking if I could take just a few players over to dota 2 who are interested in it, and try to get a community going in there. This is a side project I thought about over the week and wanted to share it.

I currently have pretty limited time due to the things going on, But I can get on evenings, though i need to keep most of time in LoL I'd love for CCG to have a few members reach out in dota 2.

So the goal is just to get into games, learn about dota and find people who like to play this, and when you get into a game even in solo queue, try to be friendly and helpful and get a bunch of friends and then try and talk with them about CCG, Not like a sales person...but like a casual friendly conversation.

"Hey you should check out CCGaming.com it's awesome!" - Ehhhh

or

"Hey me and a few other friends are playing some dota, want to join?"
and then from there try and be friendly talk with them and grow the player base.


Where did this idea come from?
A couple of areas,
A- I use to adore this game and it still holds a place in my heart
B- My brother recently started playing this and has begged me to play with him, I thought it'd be nice if I got him so cool friends to play with when I can't.

Image

Pros-
Expanding CCGs reach
Creating a christian environment for the Dota scene

Cons-
I have limited time
Unsure on how many people would like to help


So all in all I'd love for you guys to help, if you'd like to help please post below.

If you want to help but have never played Dota, then do not worry everyone (Including me) who wants to help will either be rusty or just kind of new.

Here are some channels you can watch to learn more about the game-
https://www.youtube.com/user/DotaCinema
This is dota cinema on this channel you can find guides and other useful things.

WHile Dota cinema is the most educational channel and most well known here is some others -

So some fun facts!

All champions are free - There is no 'B' back button like on LoL - The meta is different - there are over 100+ heroes - when you die you lose gold - you can buy items while not at base (They go into your stash and then you retrive them or send the courier to bring them to you) - Skins are free! - There not skins they are parts - you can mix and match your skins - you can trade the different parts of your skins for other parts - you get skins at random for doing well in game! - this game is fun!

Image

So there you have it, I think that I want to try and schedule some kind of meeting for everyone who wants to join for this upcomming weekend or monday or tuesday, where I will be answering any questions about the goals and more importantly how the game works and everything.

For me Dota I play a little more relaxed then I play LoL but if you invest time into Dota then it'll get to be very competetive.

Last thing when signing up I want you to include your Steam name and then we can work out a time to meet up and do some games (It cannot be saturday that day is full of stuff for me, and sometimes I can't even do that.)

This is a documentary on the pro scene, I encourage you to watch it, you'd probably become a fan of Dendi like me :D

A fun fact also - there is no summoner spells in the game. It is all about skill. Also, the meta is VERY different. There is usually sometimes 3 top lane, 1 mid, and 1 bot or 3 bot lane, 1 mid, and 1 top. The jungle is also VERY different, it spawns different creeps every time and there is no timer or way to predict what it will spawn in the next camp. Playing jungle is probably the hardest role in this entire game if you ask me. There are no tanks technically because every hero can carry very hard especially the supports. The difference between this game and LoL is HUGE. But, overall, it is kind of fun to play and there is even more of a challenge.

Those of you looking at joining the group I would suggest you also take a look at these videos, they should teach some things about DOTA that will really help with the learning curve.

Here is episode 1 but watching them all is a good idea.

Anyone can come to this I just need a few people but i'd like lots of people.

Keep in mind, some of the same mechanics from LoL can come over to DoTA2 and vice versa.

another fact ( not related to game play) DOTA was around before LOL, the makers of LOL created LOL after leaving DOTA crew, I believe one of them was phreak himself.

I played league back in beta and this was talked about a lot and which game was better. It didn't take to long before LOL pulled ahead of DOTA thus for the major reason for creation of DOTA 2.

I have been playing Dota 2 for awhile now. If you want to start playing it's absolutely necessary that you watch/ read guides on how to play. Dota 2 is an amazing game, but it has a terrible learning curve and it's not for everyone. Before playing a hero (that's what the champions are called in dota so get used to it or people wont know what you're talking about) you need to learn the heroes skills, how to use the skills, what skills to put points into, what items to get throughout the game, how to adapt to situations with skill build and item build, and what role to play the hero in.
Here's a reddit discussion about switching from Lol to Dota 2: http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/ ... _should_i/
