    I just played, The russians are here.

    Glad we got local servers though. Playing on a 50ms ping is hurting my brain after playing for so long on around 130.

    i haven't had any russians yet, but did have terrible a drow ranger on my side with her aura off all game and just generally feeding and being bad. that and their PL which we once again failed to shut down.

    how the hell do you deal with that guy anyway (in pubs)? i know he's theoretically easy to counter, but it seems to require a bit of teamwork and coordination in the early game, which isn't really there with a bunch of randoms at 8 am.

    actually thinking about it there's plenty you can do as long as you too get equal or not so much farm ahead. says OD ult, or undying tombstone, or anything with crowd control can do. thats the beauty of dota i guess.

    First thoughts from someone who was fairly into dota many years ago, but hasn't touched it in about 2-3 years:

    Opened it up hoping for some sort of bot match to get the hang of things. Couldn't find any but it seems like there was a grey button that may be implemented later?

    Anyway, I just set region to australia and joined a game. Picked Clinkz as I loved playing Clinkz when I used to play.

    Awesome, clinkz abilities are the same and a lot of the items are the same, this helped me pick it up quickly :)

    Ended up losing but had great fun, I was level 21 at end game which I was quite happy with (second highest on my team). I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be playing more :thumbup:

    Cant you take control of the toons of players that have disconnected? Cant you the just drop their stuff on the ground.

    I wish the ai took over when a player left.

    keep playing, it'll get better. Virtually there's 1/20 matches i'll get random quitter/leaver and troll, the rest are fun games, even the one we lost. And I was almost solo Q the whole time, unless i got my bum buddy on steam.:D

    Got off to awesome start, at bottom me and team mate actually worked together to kill the other 2 (who clearly weren't working together) at level 2. Killed them again when they came back, one ragequit, the other returned, killed the other as he was now alone, then he ragequit too :thumbup:

    FFS...how many battle points/levels do I need to progress out of the noobs pool?

    Match making tries to keep you at 1:1 win/lose ratio. It can be a bit erratic at times but it'll throw you a hard game soon. :lol:

    So good. :weirdo:
