I'm terrified, HELP
I just played Dota 2 for the first time, needles to say, I sucked at it. Everyone was super mad at me for not being perfect at the game. I'm a casual gamer, I play games to have fun, not to rage at noobs like myself. Should I give the game a 2nd chance?

Play some matches with other people against bots (Find a Coop Bot Match). You should find it much easier than playing against other players. (And likely your teammates will try to help you more).

Who cares about those other players. Play the game and have fun. Everyone was a first timer at one point. You'll get the hang of it eventually.

This. Don't play against bots. You are always worthy of playing this game, don't let people like the above convince you you need bot practice before you're worthy. Especially people who butcher their typing so bad, as the above.

Would definetly disagree with this, if you are playing with people within a month of installing this game, you are doing it wrong. You will suck, they will rage, and you will be turned off playing the game. You would be better off playing with bots until you get familiar with a lot of the heroes, items and hotkeys

Yes. So true. Have a lot of practice in short.

^This. Its not like playing against bots is the lowliest of the low or a complete bore fest. Its a great way to try new characters and chat with other new players while you learn the game. I still play some bot matches every now and then - its very fun.

To be honest people will rage regardless if its player vs player or player vs bot. I've seen complete ragemaniacs inbot matches just as often as normal matchmaking.

OP you should give the game another chance...if you have a thick skin. The community is almost 90% raging elitests.. Is great when you have that friendly few with you, the rest of the time you just gotta learn to let the rage slide.

I got this a month ago. A week after I first played, against players, I might add, I tried a bot match. It sucked. People are better to face.

this game shows your inner beast, the type of beast you never want to know, can you handel it do messed up all day long? its not jsut they get mad when you die they will get mad when they donot win and the one who could be the worst. Maybe you paly supporter? then they get mad because yo udidnt ward, you wardet? they geet made cause you wardet wrong, you are forced to play a initiator cause all took 4 carrys? you are the noob cause you feed like hell when everybody wants an initiati even when they donot got the farm to make damage. You play a nuker? you are a noob cause your level 1 lina isnt making over 9000 dmg. People in this game are the most normal humans you can see, they show with their figner to other to insult, its like in real life its never you who failed always the other. I would tell you to not play this game but do one thing to give it a fair chance, when someone insults you, mute him. Have nice day and match.
Mute all when they all yell at you. Ok they cannot talk to you now but whats the matter? they will jsut say thinks like: hey feeder drow gtfo of this game, noob pls deinstall dota 2 and play with your puppies. so mute them and try to play. And getting experienced means nothing in this game, i fought with alot level 39 guys, it takes alot effort to get this far and they suck, not just normal its like they never played dota 2 and why is it so? cause this game is palyed reverse not how good are you and your team its how bad is the communication and coordination of your enemy team.

i was knew dat feel
play with bots on mid lvl first time, after that when you learn basic rules play with other players

i feel the same way op..i have 7 hours of gameplay and completely suck at this game..never before have i failed at a game so hard and i've been gaming online along time..i just chalk it up as moba's not being for me..if i cant learn basic strategies and builds in co op play with bots(hell i dont even know what a courier does yet i am constantly asked to buy one) in 7 hours of gameplay then i know its not a game for me..I bought it on christmas sale for $7 so not a big loss..Same as starcraft 2..i am horrible at that game..I consider myself above average in online fps's and mmorpg's so my gamer ego lets me swallow my pride pretty easy when i know i suck at a certain genre and try to not waste anymore time with them..It's why i'll never try league of legends after my dota 2 expirience either..same game from what i can tell

Playing with bots doesn't help you understand the game - just the heroes, items, and hotkeys. Understanding the flow of the game is more important for a noob - and bot games do not teach that. Bot games AFTER you understand the flow of the game to figure out how best to do what you have learned you want to do in the game is good.

Bot games are for players that are not noobs but not yet good.
