Valve's Bringing $1 Million (and Dota 2) to Gamescom
I can only hope for good ranking system so i can play without fucking noobs and whiners. Thats the main problem in original dota for me.
Well, you're an asshole.
but yes, good ranking and matchmaking is vital for playable MOBA games. DotA is a disaster, by necessity, but any game that tries to improve on the model needs to put work into it.
Player dislikes anything about a PC game = console gamer babby

Oh nvm that would actually require skill, better stick to consoles and talk shit about things I know nothing about.As long as DoTA is the home of all nerds who take out their sexual frustration on new players, this will actually be the first Valve game I haven't bought on release...you're not wrong, the communities in these types of games are fucking atrocious.
Gimme a fuckin' break, man.
If I was able to convince my relatively casual-gamer girlfriend to play LoL with me (and she really enjoys it,) then the community is not all that bad. Just as a point of reference, most of her gaming consists of the Sims, Farmville, and the occasional Minecraft session.
And I even got her to play some player matches with me, so it isn't all bot co-op.
If DOTA2 is even close to as accessible as LoL is, we might give it a go!
Again, I'm sure valve is aware of the stigma surrounding the community of the game and is probably going to ease new players into the game.
You mean like in HoN where they had the 'Noobs only' games where you in the first 20 seconds of the game get verbally harassed because you didn't buy the "right" item from the item shop. Fuck this world.
@babblinmule: I never played DOTA, but tried HON. Worst community ever. Mate convinced me to try LOL a year later, and im loving it. There is a meta game where you level as well, with 30 as cap - and they use that to match people. Found the community friendly and helpful, and the changes they have made from the typical DOTA clone make it much easier to get into.

1 million dollars for playing dota blows my mind.yeaaaaaa.... I.... don't really understand, either. I work 60 hours a week and I'll never win a million dollars, clearly I'm doing it wrong. I need to play elitist nerd rage enthralled warcraft mods from 2003 80 hours a week.
LIFE IS SO UNFAIR RIGHT?! >:(
