    It shouldn't have been close, the other players on our team were horrendous. The opposition's Queen of Pain hit lvl 25, had half their kills and only managed lvl 21.

    I picked Anti-mage to as an experiment counter their phantom lancer, but that didn't quite work out as PL never got going. AM is fun, but with no slow or stun (other than his ulti) its hard to kill anyone with an escape.

    Yeah i saw that but you can only beat what is in front of you.

    I have had a string of really bad games, im finding it difficult to play carry at the minute. Too much harassment in lane.

    Need to rethink my strategy or learn to play gryo.

    In the space of three days I have convinced two people to start dota, yay Iam no longer the worst.  So what would you say was the number one tip to someone starting a battle arena game?

    Personally I said to be cautious, slow down and don't charge in to all fights.

    Epic game last night, me (Shadow Shaman) / Pigeon (Carry Abbadon) / Ultrafud (Veno) and 2 randoms Broodmother and Naga Siren. After 15 mins we were 10 kills behind after Brood lost mid lane against QOP.

    The game should have been over 15 mins later with QOP and Bloodseeker running rampage. The game ran for 70 mins and we came very close to winning, with some great crowd control.

    Was a fun game which we should not really have been in. So tired now.

    :( i was Abbadon and carry Abbadon sucks. though he is ridiculously easy to last hit with. with someone decent on a proper agi carry we could have stomped that.

    though thinking about it I should have built differently. a MoM into skull basher would have probably been a better bet.

    just don't auto attack the creep line. last hit only... ever.

    Im still playing but my watercooling decided to leak into my blueray player over the weekend while I was away. Upon restart the CPU hit 100 degrees.

    Currently being sent back to replace the water cooling and hopefully not a full PC.

    So ill be on with my backup PC from tomorrow.

    I've been busy the last week or so but should back around this week. I will probably be playing some single player games I need to catch up with, dishonored, tomb raider, splinter cell etc

    If there is space in a party feel free to whisper me but I won't be hanging around the lobby for hours on end.

    Ok I played my first game with humans in the training mode. Argh. Trying to take it all in, this may take some time. Could choose the Dragon Knight as he was already picked, the only other hero I'd played with was the sniper and he'd gone too. Chose the Juggernaut and really had no idea how to play him? Obviously melee combat, but is he a medic/healer? I was getting killed a lot, is that something that's normal during play, or do you try to stay alive by retreating? Obviously the respawn timer is quite punishing.

    So far though, I like it. Can feel the hooks catching me with this game.

    Always retreat if you go too far. Come play with us and we can do some teaching.

    Thanks guys, that'll be great. I was running away from one guy who was a Dragon Knight in dragon form, was quite funny. I have a headset in the post, so hope you can put up with my desktop/webcam mic for a bit. I'll test it out later.

    Gah, did another training game, oh dear oh dear. 3-18 kills/deaths. Really didn't stand a chance, I don't know what was happening. I thought this was supposed to be new players? Got the feeling these guys knew a bit about the game.

    Going to read some tips and watch some youtube videos I think.

    Sometimes you play vs 'low level' humans and they're in fact a bunch of twatcunts who make new accounts to toy with genuine noobs like me. Bunch of dickheads, tbh.

    Still fun though when we have an all EG group :-)

    Well we found out my old PC can no longer cut it, playing against bots yesterday was like watching a slide show with weird time jumps back and forth.

    Sorry not been on much, went a bit off it. Not sure why. Happens with games for me though - I was off Planetside 2 for a month, same with GW2. Now back on the latter with a vengeance.

    I think solo play is alright - it's working as a team that needs the time putting in. Knowing when to push, how, who for, etc. Lot of time dithering, asking 'are we gonna ward' rather than just doing it. All practise, I guess.

    Still, I enjoyed :)
