Hey Giantbombers, I am starting up a new video series that is directed at brand new players coming into the world of Dota 2. The goal of the series is to start at the very basic level, then slowly give you the foundations to at least jump into some games of Dota 2 and not feel completely overwhelmed...all while keeping the videos as short and sweet as possible.
Dota for Dummies is an extension of the usually shenanigans I do for Dota Insight as well as the coaching / teaching I do for Flipside Tactics. The first episode just went up, it covers the base basics such as movement, hot keys, and courier usage. I also have the next few episodes lined up, which will be: How to pick a hero / new heros to focus on, Explanation of the attributes and types of damage, Jungle Information, and Stacking / pulling camps as a support player.
The reason I am coming here, is that I have spent a lot of time teaching and assisting a ton of new players from the Giantbomb community over the past year. Now with this series, I really want to make it as useful as possible to the new players stepping into Dota 2. With Brad's recent infatuation of Dota 2, the Giantbomb community in Dota 2 has exploded with a lot of new people...hopefully this stuff can help your transition to Dota 2.
I really would love to gather feedback from you guys on the direction you would want me to take these, as well as any various topics that I could cover that you believe could be beneficial for your personal advancement in Dota 2.
