Yeah, I don't understand how it's good for consumers to give them less options. Whether EA Access ends up actually being a good deal or not, I'd like the opportunity to make that decision for myself.

@zgoon: I've just been playing Normal and it's been going OK - it only gives you three heroes to choose from and generally everyone else in the queue is similar skill to me.
I've also found that Purge's videos (https://www.youtube.com/user/PurgeGamers) are helpful, though they are pretty long. Really just playing is probably the best way to go, though I think just jumping in to play against real people is the best way to learn.

I'm relatively new to DOTA, but played a lot of LoL. Working on understanding the heroes/etc - so far leaning towards Ranged Support, really like Vengeful Spirit and Jakiro.
Your steam name FuriousJodo
Your location and what times you are available to play WA, USA - Generally at night (6-10PMish Pacfiic but only one or two nights a week)
Experience - Intermediate? Played a lot of LoL, and understand DOTA but haven't played it a whole ton.
Favourite Hero/Role Generally like to play support classes, though right now I just do Normal mode and pick one of the three heroes as I try to get more comfortable in the game.
I bought Too Human at Half-Price Books the other day just because I like living outside of the law.
Also, I think it was $3.
I think it does a lot of new stuff in really awesome ways, and it also does a lot of old stuff in really terrible ways.
I kind of trust MS to improve it though, the 360 dashboard saw constant major upgrades, I think we'll see faster iteration with the One and a lot of the things that are really annoying right now will get resolved.
Getting more and more excited as Friday approaches.
I was disappointed that Kinect Sports was delayed, I feel the only way to accurately test a motion control is with a bowling game.
There is a "Pre-Season" version of Kinect Sports that will be available at launch for free and has a few of the game modes.
