Tags: dota 2  patch  compendium  update  change 


Hey guys, so recently DotA 2 had a massive game change... well not really game change... okay when you put everything together it is a massive game changer.

Update 6.84 brings a plethora of new things to the table and changing up the entire gameplay with new items, new abilities, adjusted abilities, new mechanics, new aesthetics and of course... new meta.

Coupled with the Compendium DotA 2 has had a lot of content injected into it over the past few weeks. Compendium is for The Internationals 2015 this time around and offers even more than before. Yes it's aesthetics; those clamoring saying it's stupid well, go tell off the other 2 million players+ willing to pay for it(myself included even though I'm preoccupied with other projects). The Prize pool itself is already at a stagger

DotA 2 - The Newest Compendium of Activites and Rewards, Holy moley

Hey everyone, hope all is going well.

Today I want to share about DotA 2's newest Compendium for The Internationals championship tournament.

Because of the amount of stuff there is in this Compendium I felt compelled to write something and share it with you even if you are or aren't a DotA 2 player.

This compendium this time around is filled with even more things than the last. The amount of rewards you receive just for obtaining one($9.99) is insane. If you like in-game cosmetics there are plenty to be acquired with this one.

I'll actually be going to The Internationals myself this time around and completely geek out at the tournaments in Seattle.

Why I think this compendium is worth the $9.99 is the plethora of things you get out of it if you're a frequent DotA 2 player. As in you

Dota 2 Necrolyte Guide: The Pope of Pestilence




Rotund'jere, the Necrolyte.


Table of Contents

1. Introduction

2. Basics

3. Skills  

4. Pros/Cons

5. Item Justification

6. Hero Synergy



1. Introduction

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.



2. Basics

First off, it needs to be noted that Necrolyte is not a support.

The Steam Workshop and Dota 2... My 2 cents...

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’t

[DoTA 2] Team MMOSite - Match 2:Took way too long...

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 slide

Today, Valve released its new Hero for its MOBA Game, Dota2, The Treant Protector (Rooftrellen) together with some bunch of changes in gameplay, UI, and etc.

Here's an Introduction to Treant Protector by DotaCinema

So now, why don’t you make like a tree and enjoy these community highlights:

    The Dota Insight podcast just released their 14th episode. Here’s a nice guide on how Black King Bar interacts with a number of spells. Yeah, we don’t even know what this is.

More teams have been invited to The International, so make sure to check back often to see who else will be joining us this August.

Treant is not very happy that we cut his friend down to create this changeLOG.

DoTA 2 possibly going Free2Play (Ingame store screenshots)

New screenshots released by Cyborgmatt shows the in-game shop interface for DoTA 2 currently in testing. Indicating that DoTA2 will most likely have a Free2Play model.

Looks like Valve might adapt a similar system like League of Legends, allowing player to purchase different cosmetic weapons and armor for each hero. (Possibly lots of silly hats like in Team Fortress 2 for your favorite heroes)
