I really do need to post more often, and not just skim topics...  :unsure:


I've managed to regularly beat normal AIs, one-on-one on the small to medium sized maps.  Larger than that and by the time you've found them they've either out-numbered, out-teched, or out-creeped you.  Or some combination thereof.

The AI cheats, which really isn't fair.  They see everything at once (without fog of war, either - they always dash straight for you (usually when you're out of the base creeping), or your expansion), and can *do* everything at once... perfectly micromanage battles, explore, build, research, expand... Feh.</rant>

And it's night elves, not wood elves. Tongue


Does anyone have favourite races?  I personally prefer Undead and Night Elves, although humans are good too.  The Orcs lack a decent healer for the early part of the game, and witch doctors can't really be classed as 'decent', even when you do finally get them.

you'd be amazed at how much skill and strategy is required for dota... for an add-on, it's a spectacular make

Then there's Wintermaul... which would be more fun if my computer could handle it.   Sad

Oh, and night elves are the best- just build a force of chims and mountain giants, and you're all set (except for all the resources you need...)  Cheesy

The bots are so easy to work over it's not even funny. There are serious problems with their micro that no amount of maphacking can smooth over. However, I do find that if you 2v2 with 3 insane bots, the one on your team appears to gimp himself in order to provide you with a greater challenge. It wouldn't be too much of a problem except for the XP they end up feeding.

WCIII isn't the type of game that you can just pick up and play. You really do need someone to come and teach you the set. Even reading online guides can only take you so far, the good players that I know all had people to teach them face to face. If you're not so fortunate then, well, I'm afraid you're doomed to struggling even against poor competition. The most I can recommend is watching wcreplay, even so, you will probably find yourself wondeirng more often than not why these pros are doing something.

I play human for the flexibility. Fastcreeping the goblin lab /w militia will get your AM to lvl 2+, and 3 with another creep, fastcreep+expansion on Lost Temple is still viable, or the Sky AM/BM dual santcum + towers, if it all goes south you can always revert to standard spells/rifles, there's just so much variation in what you can do. As human it is absolutely essential to know when to press the advantage and close the game, failure to close will usually result in losing, it's not desirable at all to be fighting desto/abom bears/dryad as human.

As for custom games I can't get into DOTA at all, not even in the slightest. I simply don't care enough to look over all the weapon combinations for all the playstyles of all the heroes. I do play the odd game of Footman Frenzy though, which is pretty fun. Best record is probably 27 hero kills and win in 21 minutes on 3.8 NE fast tech, other than that there's DH 20 hero kills and win in 21 mins.

Thanks for the detailed response, Everous. Smiley

And, unless it's a noun, the 'Enjoy's' in your thingie shouldn't have an apostrophe.  <_<
