  1. Being a brony isn't a requirement. Having Dota 2 installed is. Or at least being able to do so. We are two guys who aren't new to the game but aren't that experienced either. We have played a little less than 500 hours each. So if you're an experienced player, this is probably not going to be for you. But if you are still relatively new to the game and just looking for some fun with a team to play with, feel free to reply to this post or send me a PM. Also I would like to add that if you've never really played the game but want to start doing so, feel free to join anyway. We will happily try our best to help you get started.
  2. As the title states, what is your favorite hero? (Heroes are listed here, and items are here.) ------- I think my favorite has to be Nature's Prophet. There's just so many ways you can play him. (personal preferences and wall of text here) You can play him as a pusher, buying a Shadow Blade, a Necrobook (and then leveling it up), maybe even a Desolator for the minus armor on towers or maybe a Mjollnir, Assault Cuirass or a Moon Shard (thank god for new items) to just push down towers and other buildings in seconds, leaving more room for your team or helping to win the game. You can also play him as a carry, maybe rushing a Hand Of Midas, getting some attack speed from Mjollnir or Assault Cuirass (but AC is more late game-ish) or just getting some early damage with either Desolator, Monkey King Bar, Daedalus, or Orchid Malevolence. Don't forget your Black King Bar as you'll probably get targeted by spells. You can even play him as ganker, getting an early Dagon or Solar Crest, then later on you can get Ethereal Blade (you can combine with Dagon for massive damage) or Scythe Of Vyse to disable a target of choice. He's really a hero that is quite variable and can really play any role due to his Sprout and Teleport abilities allowing him to set up kills and ganks, his Teleport (again), Nature's Call and Wrath of Nature allow him to push very fast all around the map, and pretty much all of his abilities can help him to carry his team quite well. ------- What's your favorite?
  3. I couldn't really find an active thread anywhere that really has dota discussed here, and I would like to discuss my favorite game with other people that love this game as well. What's your favorite heros? What's wrong with the meta game? What team do you think is doing well/poorly latley? Feel free to discuss anything dota related!
  4. I noticed we have a League of Legends thread, how about one for its rival game Dota 2? What I like about Dota 2 is how it's one of the few truly 100% free to play games out there. You literally cannot gain an advantage over others by paying any amount of money, every single item that costs real money is purely cosmetic. I also love how everyone starts out with everything unlocked, which means that the only decisive factor is skill, not how long you grinded to get stronger. Try to avoid turning this into a LoL vs Dota flamewar. I'll try to kick off a discussion by asking what everyone's favorite heroes are. Venomancer has many great DoT abilities that can make laning with him hell as your health is slowly whittled away. His slows are also great for gank, he can easily ambush anyone and even if they get away, the poison damage will often kill them. Ogre Magi is a lot of fun too. He is 100% skill based and has zero luck influence on him. His Fireblast is a great skill. Don't think of it as a spell that only has a small chance of doing its full effect, think of it as a powerful nuke and stun that has a chance to become even stronger. When it comes to playing carry, Luna is one of my favorites. Her Lucent Beam has good damage and range, which allows her to catch fleeing enemies, but the coolest thing about her is how her Moon Glaives bounce around. You can clear a creep wave in three seconds! When you get Manta Style, there are a dozen of them flying around at the same time, wrecking everything in sight and looking badass. Centaur Warrunner is another one of my favorites. It can be hard to get enough gold for a Blink Dagger, but once you do get it, no one is safe. Blink in, stomp, then use your ultimate to let everyone rush in and massacre the enemies.
  5. Hello everyone! So, I've recently started looking into DOTA 2, a game I never thought I would ever show any interest in. But, given my recent creed of trying not to judge things before I try them, I've found that the core concepts of DOTA are actually pretty fun to me, and so I've done a bunch of research, watched a bunch of videos (both tutorials, and game replays), and played the tutorial and a bot game. Overall, my experience has been good! But I've been incredibly nervous about hopping into a player game. I've heard that the DOTA community at large is very mixed. Sometimes you'll enter a game, and everyone will be awesome, supportive, and kind. Other times, you'll get yelled at for every little mistake you make! I'm also obviously not very good yet... Because of this, I've been wanting to maybe seek out someone, or a group of people who already play DOTA, to maybe play with them so as to acclimate to the game better, and in a friendlier, more supportive environment. In other words, would anyone be interested in playing some DOTA 2 with me? I have Skype, so I can voice chat easily with people during games! (I can also use in-game voice, though I prefer skype, so that I don't have to keep track of yet another key to press in-game!) Thanks!
  6. i have no idea what to post with my bad english Soooo there it is a new Dota update they get now finally phoenix and Terroblade for Chineas new year or somthink like that so i play it and first game epicnes over 1 houre my dudes just nooblike get no kills and i must save the day and in the last sekend we just finally win when evry hero where lvl 25 and full equipt just a "holly shit" moment yeah and the sekond game was just worst ... yes ....... yes it happend like that so God chineas new year or somthing like that
  7. So this was always a topic I was going to talk about at some point, but seen as there was a topic about strong Christian parents stopping people playing games I decided I would write this post: So I will answer 2 questions: Are Video games demonic? Are videos games a waste of time? (mainly from a Christian perspective). Making stuff: So lets look at Genesis: Genesis 1&2 – The Creative God •V1 – God creates ex nihilo •V3-25 – Filling and Forming creation Ultimately, everything that God creates is said to be "Good" and we are "Very Good". This is important as the next paragraph will show. And then, God creates man ! and we are: •We are co-creators with God – Filling and forming •Eg naming the animals •Continuing the creation God started So overall, everything that humans create in essence is an imitation of what God created. I mean just look at computers! Some works of art are amazing, we also listen to and enjoy music, films, TV-shows (MLP woop woop) so why should video games be any different? Further evidence of us enjoying creation from the bible bellow. Then after this there are examples of us enjoying Gods creation: 1 Timothy 4:4-5 •Enjoying God’s good creation •Giving thanks and glorifying God in enjoying things Now then, here comes the ugly part. Christians believe that Sin entered the world through "The Fall" (link to Genesis 3: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis+3&version=NIV). Without recanting it, Sin enters the "good" world that God created. Practices such as magic and demons came into the world along with sin (such as death, pain, anguish, shame, greed, and all the things that comes with that). So where do video games fit in with all of this? Are they full of things making us susceptible to demons and things hurtful to God? Playing games as a Christian - Engaging with Video Games Now I'm going to come at this from a very Christian centred way, but this will explain my beliefs well and hopefully challenge Christians who think its all bad, if it has not already. Video games send out an array of mixed messages to us, just in the same way as films and books which are a mix of truth and lies, beauty of the Gospel and ugliness of sin. The two worst things that Christians can do when it comes to movies, books or video games is: 1.Ignore it and blindly take it in. Passively take in the content and not really think about what you are watching or reading. 2.Dismiss all media and culture. Brand it as a waste of time or evil. Encourage Christians to stay away from all of that. So as a Christian I tend to ask myself these 8 questions (I don't do it formally most of the time, but I still think about it and have these questions in mind as I'm playing): 1.What’s the story? 2.Where am I? (what world you are in?) 3.What is good and true and beautiful about it? 4.What’s false and ugly and perverse about it? 5.When I play this game, do I notice any change of attitude of behaviour? 6.Is this a game I could easily walk away from or is it addictive? 7.How are men and women portrayed in the game? 8.How does the Gospel apply here? Now, using these questions I can asses the game thoughtfully and expose it for what it is trying to show. Most of these questions I feel everyone should ask themselves just to game in a healthy manner. From this I look to learn from the game, games often show aspects of real life and I believe that you should be able to learn something from anything. By looking at and Identifying what is Ugly/perverse IE killing/rape/demons/magic I am not just letting myself be influenced by them. I may choose not to play a game because it changes me as a person (long stints on WoW used to make me angry with the world and I also become addicted to it, thus I ended up not playing it for a while). Other thoughts games: •Anti-Christian content •Violence •Sex & Gender issues •Immoral actions •Alternative worldviews •Are these things a corrupting influence? For a Christian, living Godly is our aim. If a game (such as wow I mentioned above) stops me from doing that because it effects me in some way, then I won't play it. I'm not saying the game is wrong for a Christian to play, but for me it is not indicative of a Godly way of life because it effects me. Non - Christians Dealing with controlling Christian Parents: Now as a non Christian, very strong Christian parents can feel very controlling with these things. My advice would be: After reading this, try and understand why they are doing it (usually, they want to protect you from what they see is harmful to you). Discuss with them the game/s in question and get them to explain to you why? Games may be seen as demonic, and talk about demonic influences. I believe demons are very real and it is important to guard yourself from them. Your parents don't want them to influence your life at all. Yes there are demonic/sinful practices in games (that should be obvious) but once again it is important to perceive this and not let it effect you (talked about more in the next paragraph). If your parents are not letting you play games, then go through the risks with them, show them that you know what the risks are and that you won't let them effect you (I know this can be really hard for a non Christian, as often Christians see things very differently). If you show understanding, and explain why in ways games are good (point out things from points 3. and maybe point 8. lots of games have redemption stories and reflect the bible in this way, or may even contain Christian themes within them such as MLP). Ultimately, (and I urge you all to follow Jesus), for a non-Christian, your aims are not to be Godly in everything you do, and I'n the end that is your choice which is a choice everyone has. I would still say to you, think about the video games you are playing and how they might be effecting you (using the criteria) and don't let them adversely effect your life (particularly with addiction, everything in moderation ). (I also talk about how video games can be great for Christians/Christianity but this doesn't fit here). If you have any questions ask me, Ill try my best! If your a non-Christian I will thank you for reading ! Your welcome to read the rest but it is basically only aimed at Christians . Extra Advice for Christian - Playing games as a Christian Part 2 – Dealing with dangers Three Important things regarding this: Apply the Gospel. Know your own limits in these things. Treasure Jesus. Gaming is also an amazing way to build relationships! 1.Gaming can be part of a community whether an online community or having your mates around to play a game together. 2.Set up a gaming society at Uni or join one? Make friends, chat about games, play games together and build relationships that are authentic. 3.Gamechurch – gaming convention – give out free beer and tracts. Could you do that at your uni? Could you do that at a UK gaming convention? 4.Set up a CU event for those who enjoy video games. Play games together. Eat food. Share your testimony? Remember as a Christians we are called to be the "salt and the light" in everything we do . A quick thought from one/the most up to data Christian literature: “It’s high time for the church as a whole to realize that this is not a passing fad, something to be ignored until it fades… The church has seen fit to engage other media (books, TV and films) and there is no reason to ignore games. God’s people build communion and community in all kinds of situations. The fantastic worlds of video games certainly have room for us.” – Of Games and God, pg169 Overall, gaming is not bad for Christians, and if you apply the above you can't really go wrong! One thing I live by is: "Doing what you love, and taking Jesus with you!" Thanks for reading and feel free to ask questions ! Ill do my best to answer!
  8. Ok, so, i've given away a few DOTA 2 invites so far, so here is another one. I have 1 spare copy of DOTA 2, if you want it then just post on this thread, i will pick one person at random tomorrow to receive it. Requirements: YOU MUST HAVE STEAM! - Dota 2 is a Valve game, therefore it requires Steam to run. YOU MUST PLAY IT - Don't enter if you are not going to play it, i've given away atleast 7 copies of DOTA 2 so far, only one person played it for more than a few hours. The last person who won on this forum played for 1 hour. How the winner will be decided - I will load up a random number generator, and whoever's post number comes up is the one who wins it.
  9. Epic new announcement. Although as a LoL player I don't want to have to side with one Thoughts??
