DOTA 2

PotatoCthulhu

I've been wanting to get into DOTA 2, but I have literally nobody with whom to play. I barely understand the basics of the game but I learn quickly. I'm looking for more experienced players to teach me the basics and with whom to play regularly. I know it's kind of silly, but I'd feel more comfortable (less awkward) with people in my age range (14-17, I'm 15)

 

Thank you for replies in advance and for taking time out of your day to read this   :)

I may not be the person you're looking for.

 

But I know many people have suggested to get good in mobas, simply watch twitch streams. Maybe try that?

there are thousands of guides out there just google them.

 

As for videos just search for them on youtube there are tons of 1 minute hero guides,

 

some terms/techniques you can search for: last Hitting, Basic to Advanced Warding, Easy Vs Hardlane, Creep pulling and stacking, Using bottle, Picking Heroes in PUB games etc.

 

other than that it's just hero guides and knowing which items to buy and what/when to kill enemy heroes, knowing where you fit in in a clash all of which are better taught through experiencing it yourself.

 

But I would recommend playing with bots first just to get a feel for it.

Agreed 100% but remember not to be too scared of trying vs real players, every single one of them were at the point you were, heck one of the best mids in the world is only 16ish. Get THIS. It'll show you the streamers with the most views (most of which tend to be pros) and also show you tournaments. Really good to have and will allow you to pick up things once you've got the basics of the heroes and items.

One of the best ways to get better at DotA is to watch professional streams and tournaments and practice what you see in pubs.  Check out DotaCinema, FNG, Draskyl, EE, ppd, Aui_2000.  These are some decent streamers.  They are all all pro players except Draskyl, who casts pro tournaments.

 

You should also check out joinDotA for tournament info and stuff.  Check out this guide by Purge Gamers for some basics, and the Steam Community for guides as well.
