i5 2500k and Radeon HD6870 here, so not that ****ty no.

I doubt the survey mattered much, but said I had 500+ hours and games of DotA played, 100 heroes played, 50~ hours of other of those types of games, and answered the item and gold questions as best I could but I could've been way off. Had Lich, Lycan, AM, Pudge, and CM as 5 favourite heroes.

I'm in, ( and sorry had my two keys promised to mates )

Its fantastic, graphics are wonderful and the little details are great, there is nothing like killing Mirana with Balanar, too have him say "Mirana, the moon favours me !" or picking up a blink dagger on Magina and him raging " Blink dagger?? what a waste ! "

Still noticeably Beta, MM is quick with the recent waves of invites. But its completely pot luck, either hardcore Dota players who are good, or friends of players / staff who blow so hard.

Still alot left to implement, and ALOT of russians ( those who played some hon know what I mean ) Nothing worse then starting a game

Teammate 1 picks Void, 2 picks axe, 3 picks puck and four picks Riki, so I play crystal maiden to support void or riki.

Riki storms mid with no regen ( doesn't skill cloud till level 12 or so ) Axe with two stout shields and a set of tangos wants to lane with void, leaving me and puck top, we lost ... hard


Have had a few good games though

If anyone else is in and wants to play PM me your steam and I will add you, MM is much moar fun with frunds :I

Indeed, I rarely play if we don't have 5. The amount of dribbling spastics you can get is unreal. It is good but does feel alot slower then HoN. I'd prefer HoN if it was balanced properly but it is very far from it and getting worse with every update.

So yeah after playing a few games with this you can really tell that this game has a LONG way to go before being a finished product. That said I can't see this being anything then a F2P game just don't see what it is offering people that you can't experience already for free.

The UI is my main gripe, it gets in the way a lot of times and imo takes up too much of the screen. The shop interface especially has to be changed cause at the moment it's a ****ing mess if you don't know the items off by heart, probably the worst thing about the game imo.

Gameplay is okay again it's not eluding to something new or different it's the same old Dota gameplay and mechanics so if your expecting something mind blowing then don't look here cause you won't find it.

It's a good game and im enjoying it with friends at the moment but I don't think id ever pay money for it.

On another note Valve better use this spectating tech to their advantage in future releases, it's one of the best features iv ever used.
