Giant Bomb Dota 2 Community

#1 Edited by ErrorOperator (458 posts) -

Since the amount of invites is ramping up significantly, there is probably a lot of you who are in the beta! I was thinking of getting all of you Giant Bombers together for some games. Just to drum up numbers at the moment, who is interested? if there is enough interest, I would not mind creating a steam group and getting some fun games with you all! Like they do with all of the other games.

I had a few ideas in mind for the group, so some feedback on that would also be nice. Firstly, skill does not matter, I have read many a thread on these forums of people saying that they are in the beta but aren't very good, that shouldn't be a barrier for entry, the other more experienced players should be able to help you instead of raging at you! Secondly, voice comms, I was thinking of renting a mumble server since they are so cheap and awesome, the only problem there is if people would be willing to download it and join, it would certainly make communication easier for us instead of having to type "SS" and "gank now!", however it could even be that the in game voice works fine(it doesn't!).

So if you are jonesin for some fun people to play with but still want to have fun(i.e. not going troll items). Reply here!

EDIT: Steam Group created! - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/GBDota2

I am known as David in the group.

Do you have any invites to send out? I'm dying to get in, as League of Legends has recently been making me want to rip my hair out.

Could you please make a steam group cause it is really hard to find people to play with.

#17 Posted by CheapPoison (733 posts) -

Steam group could be a good idea.

I bet there will be enough interest in soon enough.

Went pretty well we played about 3-4 games only 4 people showed up but that was cool. Had fun. We should do one on Friday.

#28 Posted by Richardpie (15 posts) -

anyone want to do a GB community roundup and just queue together? i think itll be fun.

#29 Posted by eagle6002 (47 posts) -

Does anyone want to start a giant bomb dota 2 group on steam?

#30 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4536 posts) -

I'm down. I'm totally new to the genre so I don't really have a favorite hero/heroes yet. I played a practice match (all my matches so far have been practice lol) today and tested out Death Prophet and I really like her. Again, I'm a total newb/scrub/whatever so I'm probably missing out of some (read: all) of the nuances of playing her, but so far she's the only hero that clicked with me right away. I haven't had a test run with every hero yet so I may or may not find a better match soon.

#31 Posted by Mechwing (265 posts) -

how are you people getting these keys!?. XD

#32 Edited by Lively (302 posts) -

I just got tired of waiting, you can buy an invite for about ~$25 now.

Same. How do people get them, just luck?

That's bullshit, I've spent so much on Steam they should give me something back! (besides, you know... the games I bought.

#34 Posted by NissanSkyline (106 posts) -

Im ready to play. What server you usually choose? US/EU?

#35 Posted by Richardpie (15 posts) -

hey lets see if we can get a group together on starting this Friday, regardless of skill level.

#36 Edited by Mr_Skeleton (5145 posts) -

The link doesn't work for me, can you invite me to the group. My user name is MrSkeleton.

I am so sick of people quitting mid game...

Edit: nvm I'm in. Looking forward to playing with you guys.

#41 Posted by Mechwing (265 posts) -

#42 Posted by khronosdm (7 posts) -

What's the skill distribution like for this group? Or is it just for fun kind of thing?

I'm interested in this idea, but I am not very good so I wouldn't want to ruin peoples records. :-P

#43 Posted by Richardpie (15 posts) -

I assume it's a fun kinda thing. is anyone up for playing setting up games tomorrow? not sure about a specific time or anything.

#44 Posted by khronosdm (7 posts) -

Yeah I'm up for it. I'm in the group as Khronos. Send me a message on Steam and we'll see when we can do this.

#45 Posted by Richardpie (15 posts) -

I guess this isn't happening :(. I think we need some community awareness for this game.
