So before the weekend I put up a small piece about my result dive into the devilish world of DOTA. That time sucking game that takes people like Brad, chews them up, ruins their lives and all this happening while being berated over voice chat about how much they suck.
I love this game.
As of writing this, I've played around 15 bot games, now even though I didn't finish them all I got through each hero enough to figure out if I liked playing with them or not.
I've played around 5 online games, all with the GB crew, and each time has been a fun and unique hour of fun, tactics and being amazed by just how much depth this game has.
So at the weekend, I had enough spare time to squeeze in one game. After quicking joining MM with the duders, I was thrust into my first random draft game.
Here was me, figuring out who I was going to play and right there and then my whole world was flipped upside down with three heroes right in front of me that I had never played.
I am a noob; of course I am. However I know fine well at this stage I shouldn't be playing at a Carry or an Initiator. That left me one choice.
Now little did I know that he was a bit of a mashup of a Hero, but in I went with both feet trying to figure out just what this guy was all about. Being the previously mentioned noob, I went forward with all blades blazing and began to rank up as quickly as I could.
Then it happened.
What? Here was me, little old Silencer, getting THE first kill of the game against Pudge. Obviously after that, everything else was a bonus, but after finishing was a respectable 3 kills, I was quite happy with my efforts as part of helping the team using my ULT to silence the whole field and let the killers do the damage.
And then when the game finished... a chest!
This n00b has a chest... oh yeah.
Next game? I fancy Tinker.
