Experience: I've got like 600 hours in Dota 2 (along with probably twice that in HoN), so, uh... "Veteran?"

Favorite Role: Hard to say these days, as now I play a bit of everything. Mostly support and ganker roles, I suppose.

Add me on Steam if you're interested in pick-up games; feel fry to shoot me an offer to play whenever if I'm not doing anything else. I'm mostly looking for cool duders to play public matchmaking with or teach the ropes to. Also, if you haven't already, join the "GiantBomb" chat channel ingame!

#21 Posted by Sweep (8974 posts) -

@mrpibb: That's a question for @rb_man, he's the dude with the plan.

The ingame chat is pretty quiet yeah, but I added a bunch of people to my friends list and there's usually enough guys online to form a matchmaking team.

The IHL is dead in the water. Because of me being sick for 2 weeks and then someone else in my family being sick for 4 weeks after that. By then everyone had scattered and what not. So it just kind of died. I have been think of starting a new one but it behind other stuff I have to do for real life.

@rb_man: Hope everything is well. Family comes first.

Finally got my head above water, so I'll prob play a couple of games tonight ~9pm PST. Definitely low level MM so don't expect craziness but I'm up for stacking or doing in house if we have enough people.

Favorite Hero: Lina all the tiiiiime.

#31 Posted by YI_Orange (1172 posts) -

Anyone playing consistantly? I've been fighting an urge to give DotA 2 a shot since I got burned out on LoL(same 20 champs every match whoo!) I don't really wanna jump in without a group of people to play with though.

Steam: YI_Orange

Location: US East

Experience: Used to play plenty of DotA in WC3, but haven't for years. I played a good bit of LoL. I know my way aroud a MOBA so if people need some help with the general practices of the genre I can help with that, I have to relearn the hero interactions and items for DotA 2, though I'm sure I know basic build theories and such.

Favorite Hero: N/A. I haven't played DotA 2 yet. In the WC3 map I played pretty much everybody and was at least decent with most of them. That's how I like to play. If I join up with a group I'm not looking to get dropped into playing one role all the time or being locked out of a role. I don't care how good anyone is, I just want versatility.

#41 Posted by ripelivejam (4769 posts) -

if i joined this group with the express knowledge to others that i would suck pretty fucking badly my first few (or more) times, would everyone give me the third degree if i make a stupid mistake or 5?

cause after bombcast/TNT i kinda really want to play this. :(

#42 Posted by mrpibb (470 posts) -

looks like a couple of the devs are interested (not going to name names), but will try and get a couple of them into games this weekend. Might be as simple as bot games to do some last hit practice but people are welcome to join in if you see us online. Maybe we can get some "fun inhouse games" (oxymoron I know) in to start the addiction.
