    I don't even know where to begin. I got an invite to this a while back, but after a single bot game, I gave up. I play LoL on a daily basis and absolutely love it, so figured this wouldn't be too hard to get to grips with, though it seems I was wrong!

    I was all over the place, I had no idea who I was playing or what to buy. Kept seeing a flying donkey about the place as well. I've tried finding/watching a few tutorial videos, but none have been too helpful. Can anyone recommend a site/guide which would be of use?

    Cheers guys, definitely helpful! Bit of stupidity on my behalf when I didn't think to check the Dota2 subreddit, especially when I spend most of my shifts on reddit.

    Because they're fun?

    I hate the schtick of "If you don't like something, don't comment" - I think it's very important to let people who like something and people who don't like something have a discussion, if that's what they want to do. That said, it would be really appreciated if you didn't post the same snide little comment in every thread about this topic, especially in a thread that's obviously just someone looking for help.

    I just like seeing how people can get really upset about someone disagreeing with them in completely subjective matters. But okay, fine. I guess you can discuss that video game if you really want to...

    No, we're fine with people disagreeing. Just posting inane negative sentence fragments is simply bad trolling however.

    ... Correct me if I'm wrong, but are you talking about watching us thumbs-down a post that is nothing more than "lol, people who play Dota" in the subforum for Dota?

    Also make sure to leave games half way through to take out the rubbish.
