Just a little insight on his experience playing DOTA 2 at Gamescom and his thoughts on the game so far. I really agree with his response to the internet-ragers who are up in arms with negativity towards a game they haven’t played or even seen first hand.
“I think the criticism is childish. The public does not know what they want. The first time I took a glance at DOTA 2, I didn’t like it also, but in three days I could stop playing it — because in reality, when you play the game — then you will start enjoying it. ‘Cause no game is really made for watching. They are made for playing. So, first play the game, then judge.”
If you haven’t already heard, Valve is livestreaming their $1,000,000 DOTA 2 tournament, “The International,” from Gamescom, giving us MOBA fans an amazingly in-depth preview and first look at DOTA 2.
Hit up this link to view the Livestream (on-air, right now, as of this posting) and below the embedded player is also a link to get yourself on the beta waiting list!
I have a handful (eight at the moment) of League of Legends beta invites to send out and all you have to do is leave a comment with your email or shoot me an email to iWinButton.jt[at]gmail[dot]com with the subject “LoL Beta.”
I’ll update this post once all eight of the invites have been taken care of.
For the less-informed, League of Legends is a spiritual successor to the extremely popular Warcraft III map DOTA (Defense of the Ancients). Check out the LoL site for more info.
