After playing LoL for a while and just starting to get the hang of it, I've been waiting for Dota for ages.
Finally the Mac version is out and I gave it a try. So far so good, did the two tutorials then a bot match with a friend on my side (2 vs bots). Was fine, went to play another, selected a hero and... crash.
Now everytime I select a Hero, it crashes on "Play". Other tutorials, bot matches, anything. A search reveals the same problem for loads of people, including sound glitches, missing announcer (I had this also).
How on earth can Valve release the game in this state? I get that it's a Beta but you have to be able to play it to test it, surely. Bad show, Valve. Bad show.
