You have to finish it. However. playing each quest once is enough, you don't have to do 5 mid lane and 10 limited heroes matches.

You need to complete the first two tutorials and watch the short video after completing both tutorials before you can play the game. It's somewhat time-consuming, but it's designed like that because you'll need a decent grasp of the game before you get into it. Dota 2 features tons of gameplay elements that give it a significant amount of depth but also make it discouraging for newbies who won't be able to grasp it all within the first few hours of play.

It's highly reccomended that you play a bit of the third tutorial, too. It gives you a grasp on laning, an important element of the game. Read up on your Dota too (See what I did there?). There are some wikis on Dota 2 that will point you in the right direction. Read up on guides on Steam, too. You'll save yourself hours of frustration and possible cluelessness over why your teammates are yelling at you for saving up for the ring of health at the start of the game.

Oh, and you'll need a lot of hours on Dota 2 before you can consider yourself to have a lot of knowledge on the game. I myself could use about 200 more hours of this game. (Don't start whining about OP heroes after your first few games.)

If you've never played before and are new, you need to do the tutorials. Do not skip them and ruin the game for others because you then don't know what to do because you didn't go through them.

1-Right click on the game name, in the library tab of steam. Click on "properties". Now that you are in the Dota 2 properties window, click on "set launch options". On the new window write "-console" this will enable the console! Click ok and close all the tabs.
2-Start the game normally
3-Once the game is loaded, the console should popup to you. Write this on the console "dota_new_user 0" and press enter
4-Done! Close the map and now you can play the multiplayer of dota

It's annoying to have to do some tutorial when I've played DotA ever since it was a map for WC3, as well as LoL, HoN, etc.

Hey, do you know how to pull, stack, block, last hit, and deny creeps? If you don't, then you need to play the tutorial.

My friend is telling me the tutorial while i play in a differnt way so its no so long and boring

You see, it's ben psychologically proven that if someone is given two different perspectives of the same thing, they are more likely to be better at it. In other words, if you don't want to be flamed, then do the tutorial please.

Sure cause the game is so frigging hard, that YOU DO NEED TO DO A TUTORIAL, not.

so if ive played dota for the last 10 years, hypothetically, you assume i should do the tutorial because its different when its a carboncopy of wc3 mechanics down right to the wacky buggs that the wc3 engine had and got reimplemented : pudge chen hook is a bug, that got implemented it was never a intended feature. ( just google for the devlogs on this if u have trust issues ). Seriously i hate having to redo the tutorial on a second account when i use that one only for TMM and scrims.
