Hello and welcome to DOTA 2! Sequel to Defense of the Ancients: All-Stars, DOTA 2 has a prime lineage of moba awesomeness.
"What is DOTA?", you ask, eyes filled with tentative wonder. Well...
DOTA is a fast paced strategy action game....thing. You kill dudes, get gold, gain exp, all so you can kill more dudes with the eventual goal of killing your opponents Ancient and winning the game.
Here's a guide so I don't have to regurgitate shit and make this op a billion pages long:
Read that shit again and again and again.
"How do I partake in this amazing fest of carnage and racial slurs and unintelligible nerds yelling at each other?"
Well, the game is in closed beta, so you either buy in or wait for the eventual free to play launch.
"Valve? I BET THERE ARE A MILLION HATS AND STUPID SHIT LIKE THAT"
Sure, but unlike another valve game *cough* most of the cosmetic shit fits the style of the game and NONE of it has any gameplay effect.
Good competitive match videos:
