They let you download the client to spectate matches even if you don't have a key, but it's 'spectate only' and you can't play. If that's the case, I also have 6 spare keys. Either way, have fun!

Have they changed anything from the first game? Or is it still just about getting late game stunlockers?

I don't know if it's because the game is vastly different or because I face better quality opponents, but I don't see any 1v5 Lifesteal+Butterfly+2xBasher Antimage/Troll/Naix anymore (although Naix is a different hero and Troll hasn't been ported, but the point is carries don't have it as easy as I think they did back in DotA). Even when your team is dominating you need to have some kind of teamplay or you might get caught off guard. Playing the ward-b**** role is a lot better in Dota 2 than it was in DotA IMO.

I'm used to Demigod and have absolutely no idea what I'm doing in this one.

I haven't played Demigod. Is that the one in which you need to manually aim everything including your normal attacks? Make sure you're playing the actual Dota gamemode, not the Christmas 'greeviling' event.

If you're looking for a basic introduction, this is a community favourite. If you feel like you're in way over your head, don't worry, that's perfectly normal. It takes ages to simply get the confidence to experiment with item builds. Don't be surprised if you get smashed by bots; they're a lot better than the players you'll encounter at first. Just stick to the recommended items for the most part, get advice from the friendly players and be patient until you make it out of the scrub zone in matchmaking. After that you'll encounter far fewer flamers and the players will be more friendly in general.

P.S. I still have plenty of keys left, if anyone's interested..

Just play LoL - it's a lot more fun IMO. I played about 10 games of dota.... and over 1500 in LoL. :D

I don't want to be the cliche Dota2 playing LoL-basher here, but I can't stand that game. The free teleport to the fountain, bushes, no denying, etc. I played the original DotA for a long time (from the start of 6.xx to ~6.4x-6.5x) so I prefer games that stick to the DotA formula.

HoN was pretty good for a while. I played ~1000 games during and soon after the beta but I stopped playing soon after they made it free-to-play and made the UI incredibly cluttered and glossy. I recently gave a friend my account that had been sitting idle for over a year and I couldn't believe how ugly it looked. No regrets. They went completely overboard with the cosmetics too. A relatively cheap set would make a hero look completely different (Predator, who normally looks like a bear, could now become a rabbit or the Alien from the Alien movies). I don't intend on memorizing each hero's 4-5 looks, thank you.

IMO Dota 2 is the best of the lot. I can't wait till they release the map editor so they can port all the other custom maps from Warcraft 3.

I'll check it out later, thanks. I'm just used to games being learnable on their own I guess.

I don't really do PvP in anything but FPS. (The bots on Medium did work my team, but we still won...took out their barracks in the center and it was mostly downhill from there, even though I was still getting killed every time I turned around.)

I still like Demigod a hell of a lot more, but I've played that enough.

Sure. Post/PM your steam ID.

Edit: sent. Anyone else? Oh and FWIW, Australian servers are up. So any Aussies suffering with high pings in other games might want to give this a try.

I just got 5 more in addition to the ones I already had, so if anyone wants, feel free to ask. They're just rotting away in my steam inventory.

I have 10 passes available to whomever wants them (and manages to catch me online).

Add me on Steam and shoot me a message if you want one: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Waco

EDIT: After you add me - just shoot me a PM on here and I'll try to get the games sent whenever I have time.

I have no idea why, but Valve just sent me 23 DOTA 2 passes. Send me a PM with your steam ID and I'll add you then send the pass over.
