Hey everyone. I've been interested in DOTA since Brad streamed the daily DOTA. The Invitational got me hooked even more so I tried out the tutorials. Man, it is pretty boring. I feel like I'm not really learning much other than learning the barebone basics. I need a crash course on warding, when to buy items, and a bunch of other advance lessons on how not to suck at DOTA2. I've been trying to read up on Purge Gamers' "Welcome to Dota, You Suck" article which has a lot of great tips, but I feel like the best way to learn how to play is to play with a posse.

If you have the time and patience to help me not suck at DOTA as bad as I do today, hit me up on steam! My steam ID is Yeah! PCE PCE or you can just add me from my steam profile: steamcommunity.com/id/pppoet.

Mostly when there's dumb fanservice in games. Especially with anime/manga style games. I love that medium, but hate the fact that the dumb fanservice, like when Patrick spoke about in Danganronpa, reinforces the stereotypes and stigma surrounding it. It more of a "oh come on" than being outright offended though.

So fan service like a man fucking a horse in south park or a guy masturbating is fine but a women/girl in her underwear in bed is not?. I do not know how you sleep but I guess you do not sleep in your full clothes at least^^

I never spoke about south park or anything like that. You're putting words in my mouth. If I played that shit and felt offended, then I would say I was offended. I never played the game, and I barely watch the show. So maybe if I did, I would agree with you. In fact, the notion of it sounds extremely offensive.

I'm just talking about the anime/manga stereotypes with fanservice. Its kinda hard for me to recommend stuff that has it without feeling stigmatized. I mean, if you are into that kind of stuff, great, there's plenty of that shit for you, but it does more damage than good when there are western fans who actually like that medium. Anime fanservice in general is the reason why people have the misconception that its all about "tentacle rape" and "hentai". I understand why Japanese companies bank on that stuff, but it just constantly reinforces that stereotype. I guess, if its done tastefully or is consistent with the plot/tone then it's all good, but usually its just blatant everywhere.

I'll leave this right here to back up this thought.
