    And me!

    Played Keeper of the Light today, first time, he is sooo cool! Though, I don't know when to use his teleport ability in pub games.

    I generally use it if our carry is AFK farming and the team is pushing, if we can't get the tower / lane without him I grab him mid fight to turn the tides, or if I see a gank coming I'll often use it to get him out of a jam. Otherwise I never really use it.

    Is it just me or are the graphics in this really poor ?

    I've only really just started playing it, but after playing HoN / LoL, I was very disappointed in the quality of the graphics.

    Gameplay is good, hard not to be, it's a fairly well established game type.
    but yeah, the graphics thing....

    that was my first impression when i watched TI 1, it seemed so dull. But now I am accustomed to it and I think it really helps to recognise what's going on with all the spell and animation of casting rather than seeing shiny rocks. Each to their own but you should give it a go until you feel comfortable with the game, you will never wanna go back to HoN or LoL. At least that's what I feel.

    Especially with casting and turning animation in Dota, it's a big part of the game to be able to disable your opponent before they can pull their initiation.

    LoL graphics look like a game from the 1990s though?

    I think it has more to do with the hue and colour palette Valve chose to do with their art direction rather than the technology. But that said, I hate playing faux 3D game. That sort of technology belongs to Commandos, even Commandos 3 has better 3D implementation than LoL. /bashing the other game :D
