Dota 2 is a hard game. When you launch it and start playing, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. There is just so much happening. You have over 100 characters (called Heroes) in the game, each with their own set of abilities. You have a community full of players who expect you to know how to do everything right from the very first game, and it’s easy to just give up. We’ve already covered some streamers that will help you get better at Dota 2, but I am going to share some of my personal experience in a video that, coupled with those people and the in-game tutorial, will help you get even better.
Recently, I’ve been teaching someone close to me how to play the game, and it’s not been easy for either of us, but it’s also been a rewarding experience, and she has become substantially better at playing the game in a very short time. In that process, though, I’ve noticed a few core mistakes that happen over and over. She’s not alone either, as other players often find themselves struggling with the very same problems.
The video that follows is going to focus on fixing those mistakes. These five tips we are going to cover will make you a better Dota 2 player.
Note: This video guide assumes you have played through the in-game tutorial and have a basic understanding of things like moving your Hero, casting spells, and attacking. If you have not played through it, I highly recommend you do so before jumping into an actual game with real players.
While I may not be a professional Dota 2 player by any means, I have spent way too many hours playing, reading about, and watching Dota 2. As such, I have gained a lot of knowledge on the game. If you do the tips in the video above, you will get better.
