I am very bored. My last listening spree was opeth. Maybe you guys can reccomend me a good metal band that i don't know of. It can be any subgenre of metal except for metalcore or hardcore stuff.

I was a huge Opeth fan until Heritage. So I started looking for any new prog rock/metal bands and stumbled upon Haken, who are absolutely fantastic. Have a listen.

After that we went into our first game against real people and beat them with 63:3 kills with two of our teammates abandoning early because our opponents were.. less prepared.

Score of 63:3 says you need to finish games or the other team just kept running into and you were playing people that didnt have ANY training.

Exactly, they kept pushing lanes and giving us free kills from minute 1, that's my point. It was our first game against human opponents and it probably was one of their first games against humans as well but there's some legwork you can do to give yourself an edge in noob games and not get horribly flamed to death every time. There's more than enough digestible info readily available after >10 years of dota.

I spent several hours watching video tutorials and reading newbie guides, then played bot matches with a friend for another few hours. After that we went into our first game against real people and beat them with 63:3 kills with two of our teammates abandoning early because our opponents were.. less prepared.

Dota has been around long enough that there's more than enough teaching material to get you through the basics of laning at least without fucking up. After that just play more dota and ignore asshats or report them when they step way over the line. I still suck at many things but I've never head any one ranting at me in early games.

Fuck, man. Just... fuck.

Condolences to Ryan's wife, the GB crew and all his friends.

It feels weird since I never met the man, but I'll really miss Ryan. Thanks for everything, duder.

@Maajin: Well, shit. That was of course one of the first things I tried, but I never looked long enough at it because it takes a lot longer than the other eye wall to start blinking. Thanks!

Could someone please tell me how to get to the section I'm missing here; it's got to be an exit off of "Leap of Faith" that I can't find.

Cheers

I think I'm the only one having trouble with getting to "The End" from "A Jump To Far". When I teleport to A Jump Too Far, and turn around, there is just a red cube destruction field, with some cubes on the other side that I can't remove or anything to get past. I've completed EVERYthing else.

If you've got the red gun, you can get past that wall. You probably just need to figure out what the red gun does exactly and take a closer look at that obstacle.
