DOTA2 isn’t my kind of game. Enchanted Axes, Boots of Travel, Eyes of Looking. Really not my kind of thing. 

So it’s kind of weird that I can’t stop playing it. It’s like every time I play I understand a tiny bit more, so an hour after I’ve rage quitted I want to keep trying. It’s not like Valve, they’re usually formulaic with the learning curve (to the point where the learning mechanic is plainly obvious and kind of patronizing.. see episode 2). In DOTA2 you are dropped right in it.

Even just the menu screen. There’s so much going on. So many words I’ve never seen before (never played WOW).

So here’s a list of stuff that turned me off, scared me and made me not want to bother:

Here’s some stuff that I didn’t understand, that makes me more likely to play it.

I still wouldn’t say it’s my game.. but it’s nice to dip my toe into this genre that I haven’t played before and find out why people put up with all the stupid lore bullshit.
