Just a heads up: Dota 2 is now officially out and free to download by all. It can be found in the free to play section of Steam. Hope to see you all in-game!
Dota 2 Officially Released
I might give it a try so I got in the que.
I am worried I'll suck at it, get yelled at, and immediately delete it... so there's that haha
Maybe I'll find some cool Giantbomb people to play with or something.
They have a tutorial in place now (I think they're still gonna add to it) that I find pretty helpful. Also join the GB and Giant Bomb chats and you'll find plenty of people to play with. I've played only like 3 games, but they've all been fun and no one was rotten or anything. Quite the opposite actually. Super helpful.
Sort of odd that they just flipped the switch today. I expected a bit more buildup. Then again I have been playing Dota 2 for two years now, would just feel weird to have them make some major deal about the release.
Anyways though, new players who want to give this a shot you can go watch my series Dota for Dummies. I try to cover everything you need to know to at least get started and enjoying Dota 2.
