    Is any1 for a concede option?

    Also, are there rewards for winning a game?
    Valve's considering it. Personally I say no. I'd like one, but I also don't want 20 minute surrenders because a Pudge misses half his hooks. I like to see games end at the Ancient.

    A win on that nice counter beneath your profile picture, and good looks inside of your Dota Profile.

    Valve's not stupid, they're not going to let one person concede the game, make it a 4/5 vote or something, and only after 25 minutes.

    I don't like having to play a 50 minute game that will surely end in a defeat, either

    Just played a 80 minute game, (Lost. only just though, we were attacking their ancient as they were on ours) and had loads of fun. I'm loving this game so far.

    well, maybe an in-game currency like in other mobas?

    Edited:

    it feels sort of meh, playing for absolutely nothing (after some time of playing, of course, I don't get bored that fast)

    I'd say 15 mins in then 5/5 can concede then maybe 40 then 4/5 can concede. Something like that.

    In my opinion, the game shouldn't end until A) You win or B) Everybody gets mad and quits.

    I do feel good when I'm improving, that's not what I meant.

    Let's take my experience with CoD 4 as an example:
    I played for at least 300 hours, unlocking every weapon and having lots of fun. Eventually, I got really good at the game, and I was mostly playing for the weapons that I had not unlocked, and I stopped playing it when I finished doing that.

    It's not that I don't like playing solely for improving my own skills, but I think that some "motivation" wouldn't hurt.

    (before you go full "hurr durr call of duty kid on me, I played it when I was 12)

    When they added the "How you compare to other people who play this character", I think it's safe to say that I was disappointed in myself. I mean, I didn't think I was extremely good I just though I would be above 50 percent. All of the recent heroes range from 40-49 percent.

    Call of Duty - turning this generation of gamers into loot/reward whores. If you cannot play a game simply to enjoy it you really need to take a break and get some fresh air Zukriuchen.

    If you leave enough games you will be placed into low priority pool. Ive seen pictures of queue times being in the hours to find a match. I believe it's only temporary(like 24, 48, etc.. hours).

    I really have no idea what you guys understand by motivation. I only used in-game currency/weapons as examples, anything else could serve as a tool for helping you improve

    "How you compare to other people who play this character"
    This, for example, is what I call motivation. Gaining EXP and leveling up is also a good way of making people like playing the game, and improving. If there's nothing to motivate you (be it rewards or just statistics that compare you to other players), you may feel like you're not getting better at all, and that you're really playing the game for nothing.

    People are motivated in different ways. Personally I enjoy the feeling of just winning matches. The bitterness of losing makes winning so much more rewarding as well. I can see I'm getting better when I play, I don't need to look at stats to see that.

    I understand your point that eventually you'll master everything and not feel joy from doing the same thing over and over again with no reward. But I don't think anyone will completely master all of Dota within any short amount of time. I've seen players who have played for years say they still learn new things from time to time. And don't forget that there will most likely be more heroes after the current Dota 1 pool, and probably even maps/gamemodes (from both valve and the community) throughout the coming years. So I don't think getting bored of learning the game will be a problem for a very long time.

    Well, it's in beta. If you're looking for skins and stuff in store like in HoN or LoL. Wait for it. We'll probably get hats too. I hope.

    Play with friends. It's way more fun that way.

    Edited:

    Are they doing the hexed with the character's item on purpose?



    This is glitched?

    Lost a 3vs5 because my team was stupid enough to underestimate the power of 3. At the end to the game, they were to well fed that there was no stopping them.

    Atleast I got to test out Death Prophet and find another fun hero to play.

    I think it's glitched. The ones where it's glitched are the characters who are split into different MDLs. Windrunner's head is completely seperate to her body, same with Clinkz.

    This is my personal build, seems to work when you got ranged support with you in the same lane.
    Tangoes, Quelling blade, soul ring recipe, 3 branches
    Boots, Wand, Midas, Soul ring asap.
    Armlet, BKB, then occasional items. Good ones are heart, AC, Rapier and MKB.

    bkb isnt needed, but if they have a lot of disables (invoker, rhasta etc) then you should get it

    otherwise no, because you're supposed to be the one that they burn all their abilities on and then die from your team

    Assault Cuirass or Mjollnir, though AC is probably a better idea for him.

    Shadow Shaman is really fun to play. In fact, almost all heroes I've tried are fun to play.
