"The farming was very promising with Juggernaut rarely missing a cs, there was very little for Crystal Mayden to do other than a few denials. The night came with the realisation that the creep line was too pushed thanks to the suspiciously lack of opposition from the dire side. As both of them were moving back to the safety of their own tower, all hell break loose as an extremely sharp scream pierce through their ears and the earth split beneath their feet. Lying on the ground, Crystal Maiden remembered the ultimate duty of a support and got on her feet using her last remaining health and mana to delay their pursuers allowing her partner to escape. Juggernaut kept running, as he didn't allow himself to make her sacrifice go to waste, but could not hold back the shedding of a single tear from his left eye."
Hi, TL. I already spent around 500 hours on Dota2 and countless on Dota. I'm trying to get an invite for a friend.
I played Dota in the internet cafe with friends a lot before I moved to study in the US. It was so addicting that sometimes we skipped a period or two of school to play lol But, in my high school in the U.S., I cannot find a single person who plays dota. So, I just stopped playing and played SCII instead, until I got Dota2 of course.
Still, I missed the commendatory when playing Dota with friends: helping each other come up with a ridiculous build, laughing hard when someone fails, getting food to eat inside the internet cafe, and all those good jazz.
Now, I'm at college. I might get to experience that again. After my roommate sees my play Dota2 almost every night, he somewhat becomes interested in the game. Hell, he learns that Lycan is op, morphling is a prick, and supports always get shit on. And, there's another guy on my floor walks by my room as I am owning as clinkz. He asked my roommate what I am playing. My roommate says he's playing Dota. Befuddled, the guy walks in to see my screen; then he says with a surprising tone that he used to play Dota too. He is also interested in Dota2, but he doesn't have an invite.
It would be awesome if I can get an invite so I can get to play Dota with someone in rl again. ( I know I can tell them to cough up $5 to get an invite. But, we are poor college students. )

its the endless possibilities and the real time decision making ... no two dota 2 game is the same, even with the same hero choices and item build ... the on the dot decision making and strat adjustments made while on game makes it an interesting game to play and watch ...
I played dota for 5 years, I want a beta key to play with my friends, I am the only one how don't have it =( I like to play because is a team game, I use to play with my friends and my gf, is great when you can save the day with heroes like drow ranger, nevermore, raijin and so many othres.
I will never foget, when I was playing with some random guy, he was mid solo with sniper, and keep complaining that he was playing 2v1 in his lane, he was playing against terrorblade, the guy was using one skill how make some copies of him. It was funny, he keep cursing the team.
Hi, I play DotA ever since 2005 or 2006, I don't remember anymore, I had the opportunity to learn from someone who already knew the game, basicaly our guild had 2-3 guys that played dota and the rest had never played it, so it was a 5v5 with one good player in each team, eventually everyone got decent and we had great 1 hour games, really exciting, DotA is amazing because you can always learn more, not only about the game but about how certain types of people react in different situations, of course there are epic times like when you can fool the entire enemy team in the woods, turning an impossible scape into an amazing trap, the feeling when I'm techies and I'm about to blow the entire enemy team up is so damn good haha, I wish I can get a dota 2 beta key, My friends have it, but we play HoN instead because we want to play together and I don't have a beta key Also the quotes in dota2 are amazing, I've heard every single quote from every single hero in dota wiki, yes, I'm this passionate about this game !
Cause I wanna comeback to shake the earth with my Earthshake, what is best to go with a big Tauren with a Totem in his hand? I play Dota for a long time with my friend and I wanna play more with them with Dota2. I hope can get the key

I never really got a chance to play Dota, but I've been playing other MOBA's with friends and using the spectator client to watch them play Dota 2 (I'm the 5th guy in their group but can't afford to outright purchase the key) and I can really see why TeamLiquid decided to add it to their page.
This game has far more depth and strategy than any of the other MOBA's. Unlike other games (Smite for example), last hits are extremely important to building up your gear! Not only that but you can deny the other team their last hits by last hitting your own mobs to further turn the tide in your favor. Want a faster path through the jungle? Just chop down some trees! Need an item but don't want to go back to base? Use a courier, but don't let it die! There are also several unique buffs in the river like invisibility and illusions. Combine these things with a huge list of heroes/items and you've got yourself many things to think about. The spectator mode is hands down the best I've seen. All the information you could want is right at your finger tips, even graphs of various stats during the actual game. You can free roam, follow a specific player, or be automatically directed to the big battle sites.
With so many things to think about and work on in your gameplay, I see the competitive scene really shining. Dota 2 is gonna be one hell of an Esports platform.
Favorite moment: Every now and then you get paired up with players that are being jerks or you want to just mess around with a friend. Dota 2 gives you the option to have a little fun in that regard. One of the heroes has a skill that lets you switch places with a friendly or enemy target. Simply wait until they're low on hp while you're in the middle of a group of enemies and switch places with said target. It's a douche move, but sometimes necessary to teach 'em a lesson.
Grinning malevolently, Yurnero brandished the ornate blade before his eyes. The setting sun gave the weapon a crimson hue. Slowing his breathing, the tattoo-marred berserker began swinging the sword in methodical, weaving arcs. Stiff, cracking muscles loosened in his boulder-like shoulders. Suddenly he surged forwards, whirling and twisting his honed body. The blade; a blurred, sweeping shadow as it spun before the warrior. Cleaving the cold air as it sang its song of death. Yurnero's bladework was immaculate. Every movement finely balanced and controlled. Cut, thrust and parry; the sword transformed into an extension of his arm. Rylai glared at her companion contemptuously, her flowing, flaxen hair partially obscuring the apprehension in her face. She did not share the belligerent savage's thirst for battle. Thoughts of the ensuing onslaught made her cringe.
Above, the livid sky was low and threatening. Heavy rain fell from bruised, dark clouds striking the rolling plains and sprawling, ominous woods beneath. Amidst the blackened rocks and stunted, twisted trees, shadowy figures amassed in their hundreds. Their silhouettes clawing at the sky like gnarled fingers grasping for victims. The two heroes' gazes met, Rylai almost taken aback by the stirring violence in Yurnero's eyes. No words needed be spoken, no gestures made; they both knew there would be no victory on this day. As they charged down the sodden, well trodden hill that had been their sanctuary for so long, the tolls of death boomed deafeningly like an approaching thunderstorm.
Even though we ended up losing that match, my friend and I both recognized the true spirit of Dota: teamwork. There's is nothing quite like playing a game with other like-minded people (be it friends or temporary teammates) and together, through communication and selfless dedication, becoming an amalgamation of unconquerable force. Crushing your foes and toasting on their graves. There is also, like the story above, a place for great heroes and undying memories. Stories of old where fearless warriors do battle for ephemeral lust, unattainable power and boundless glory. Their unwavering loyalty matched only by their prowess in mortal combat.
That is indeed what makes Dota such a remarkable game.

I started with the original Dota. Dota was then brought to new heights by Guinsoo's All-Stars. Guinsoo faded away. Dota didn't. Icefrog took over, and Dota is taking over the world, harder, better, faster every time.
I have left Dota many times. I have come back many times. Dota has left me many memories. Now I realise, dota has never left my heart.
All my friends are playing Dota 2 (They all have been lucky to receive a beta invite from Steam). However, without me they have not enough support to dominate the opponents team If you would send me a beta key, I'll be the happiest ex HON Player in the world :D
Dota is awesome because of the variety of combinations which synergise together or are just awesome. It has been a while, but something that I always remember is trying to set up Pudge hooks into spider... I mean techies mines.
