First of all I want to say that I dislike MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena). Too many people curse at you, you curse at too many people, the matches take way too long mostly and it just is annoying. I played Smite and LoL. I quit both after 1 day. Smite I quit because I noticed you have to pay a little too much and LoL was just annoying the sh*t out of me.
But I decided to try Dota 2.
This blog was actually meant to be a review of Dota 2 but while browsing the internet I stumbled across something else that I wanted to share about htis game.
Dota 2 was released on July 9, 2013 and is a free to play MOBA from Valve Corporation. The game has a wide variety of heroes to play with but it can only be lauched through Steam.
Dota 2 is a quite active MOBA. Last month it reachedContinue Reading

Dota 2 Necrolyte Guide: The Pope of Pestilence
Rotund'jere, the Necrolyte.
Table of Contents
5. Item Justification
6. Hero Synergy
Necrolyte is a Pusher, Carry and Tank. He is one of the best Intelligence heroes which scales well into late game. His abilities damage enemies over time and in a big radius, so he thrives off of living long and being right in the middle of action during combat. His ultimate, Reaper's Scythe, devastates a single target, finishing them off and securing the bounty for himself. This hero is for those who don't mind a weak early game and want to fight their enemies head on.
First off, it needs to be noted that Necrolyte is not a support.Continue Reading
Razor is a semi-carry that is built for durability and as well as an anti-carry role. As Razor you want to stay in the fight as long as possible to drain the opposing team’s damage and use it against them. Razor cannot hard carry so he works best when the team already has a hard carry. If not then you want to end the game around 40 minutes.
Plasma Field is Razor’s nuke and makes a circle around Razor and expands and goes back. The targets take more damage the farther the Plasma Field is from Razor. This makes it great for attacking people who you are chasing and as well as pulling multiple packs of neutrals. The damage is amazing for early game and still pretty great for mid game, but in late game Plasma Field’s power starts to die down. It’s also great for getting visiContinue Reading

Some of you may doubt that :"DotA is a MOBA game and 99% players are guys. There even romantics in DotA, are you kidding me?" Ok, here I am proving it!
First, let's take a look at a romantic story in DotA:
It is a love story between Crystal Maiden and Shadow Fiend (Two heroes in DotA).
It is a DotA fan-made MV called "Still a Rainy Day" (from Chinese translation)
Details about the story
Part I: Crystal Maiden and Shadow Fiend are apart. They can not meet each other in DotA world. What they can do is to miss each other without day and night.
Lyric translation from Chinese:
Still a Rainy DContinue Reading
Hey peeps, today I was looking for some information about Dota 2 and its characters, when I found some interesting stuff, the Steam Workshop. The basic concept is that you help the growth of Dota 2 by making stuff for the game. Professional stuff! (Dota 2 is the center of attention in this blog entry but the workshop also works for other games).
I have to be honest, , I have my doubts about the future of this feature. It’s the way it works that really shakes the foundations of my soul. Some things are sketchy and they give me the wrong kind of feeling…
I have to point out that certain life experiences do something to the way you think and how your perception works.
So… What the hell I am talking about?
Well, I was reading the Workshop documentation and as I said before, some stuff is kinda sketchy. They said that you are going to get money if you help Valve by doing stuff for Dota 2. After they mention that, they start talking about how to get things done correctly, so your stuff doesn’tContinue Reading

It's been a long while since I've posted the last DoTA match for Team MMOSite. For the people who have been waiting for this, I'm sorry that it took so long too many exams hitting me hard. This match was played 1 year ago so bear with me as I talk about a really old match xD
MMOSite is still trying to increase their DoTA 2 community making it more interactive and we're getting a bigger team this time. Again we allowed the community to vote on which hero you wanted us to play as. Although the team composition wasn't great we still pushed forward and tried our best.
Our team, the Dire once again selected Lich(Zephy), Sniper(Collussus), Shadow Fiend(Kelleranna), Lifestealer(Nak123), and finally Tidehunter(iLovecat). Although iLovecat wasn't supposed to use Tidehunter we let it slideContinue Reading
So I finally got around to playing some Dota 2 after my friends had been talking about it for several months. Dota 2 is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game more similar to Heroes of Newerth than League of Legends. It certainly has a lot of depth and complexity compared to League of Legends, which is simplified and lacks as many strategic elements. Unfortunately, you have to learn many of these mechanics as you go as there are no guides to really help you with the game.
EDIT: I will probably be redoing my League of Legends review once Season 3 starts. The changes to Twisted Treeline and the addition of All Random and The Proving Grounds has made the game quite different.
EDIT 2: It seems that Dota 2 will be getting a bunch of seasonal game modes for events. Diretide was for October and there is a new one for December. Unfortunately, I do not find this one as fun.
Something about 2 groups known as the Radiant and Dire are fighting it out for control. It does noContinue Reading

Recently, the issue that RaidCall and its branch office in Vietnam, CENS, which was the exclusive sponsor for the DotA 2 RaidCall Asian Cyber Games Vietnam 2012, has decided to self-withdraw the sponsor contract with the organizer is IGN.vn, is making wave in Vietnam DOTA 2 Community.
As IGN.vn stated, from the beginning, when CENS had known about the DotA 2 Asian Cyber Games Vietnam 2012 qualifier to select the representative to compete at The Asia in Malaysia, they came to IGN.vn to offer to be the exclusive sponsor for the tournament, and change the tournament’s name to DotA 2 RaidCall Asian Cyber Games Vietnam 2012.
According to the contract, CENS must transfer 70% of the sponsor package to IGN.vn before August 27th; however, CENS kept delaying the transfer with unreasonable excusesContinue Reading

This is going into my new category of Guides since its the first I felt I should mention it :P.
Now before anything is read I just want to mention these builds are simply for fun or ridiculousness I don't know its viability/usefulness since every time I've tried it its either complete success or doomed failure or the masses come flaming. I don't think anyone would actually build this since I haven't seen any of it in game other than from myself but I do remember in the DotA 1 days some friends laughed pretty hard when it was achieved. Apart from that I still do it in DotA2 and works very much the same (Yeay to Valve for literally keeping what they said, "The game mechanics will not change and be very familiar to that of DotA 1")Hero: Juggernaught Game items:
Power Treads(INT) - Okay... sure... wtf INT?
OR Arcane Boots over Power Treads - Ok you're a noob bye.
Scythe Vyse - Wtf?
Refresher Orb - Uh yeah maybe?Situational:
Force Staff - Seriously...?
