TUTORIAL OF THE VALVE Dota 2 guide to survive
Dota 2 guide to survive Shortly before the release of the final version of DOTA 2, Valve has a built-in menu tutorial is divided into chapters, of course aimed to explain the game mechanics to newcomers. In our opinion, the result is far from perfect, for several reasons. First, it was decided to add to what is in fact a simple tutorial unnecessary contextualization in terms of plot, not very effective at the level of entertainment and above all too able to stretch the time needed to complete each chapter Dota 2 guide to survive. As, indeed, the material offered by the guide to be valid, and quite thorough as far as everything you need to know before you take the field, we would have preferred a more dry. We recommend, however, especially if used in combination with the matches together with the bot, which allow you to put into practice what they have just learned. However, as regards to tutoring, a special mode that should allow most experienced players to volunteer to teach newcomers the basics of the game, unfortunately there are still no concrete news about the addition of this valuable function in the game menu Dota 2 guide to survive .
PUSHING Dota 2 guide to survive
Dota 2 guide to survive The push is the act of “pushing” (literally) to one of the enemy towers, with the aim to get closer to the enemy base to destroy it. Since a push sensible always involves the majority of the team, or even the entire group, it is a delicate step, which requires planning and ends irremediably to leave discoveries defenses. From this arise often the reversals that characterize many DOTA 2 games played by participants of the same ability (when taken individually). When the team lacks communication and team work, a push born evil can easily benefit the opposing team which, neutralizing it in time, it can then exploit the second time you respawn to attack in turn. In other words, and as it may be very difficult when you play with people who do not know, always try to organize the push, or to listen when another player on the team to propose it. Never give anything for granted, always respond to calls in text chat, and especially if you organize the push you, make sure that everyone understands exactly when it is time to attack and what is the designated line Dota 2 guide to survive. A second important rule to follow during the push is to focus only on the objective of the latter, whether it is one or more towers, or the Barracks, ie the structures placed around the enemy base, which once destroyed greatly increase the health and the attack force of creep allies. When you push it in, it is very likely to encounter early in the resistance of the enemy team, and get carried away by the collision can be all too easy Dota 2 guide to survive. In these moments, you will need instead to remember exactly what is the designated goal, and pursue it, even if it means giving up some killing. If the enemy were to realize the impossibility of defending, and should retire, it will be much more important to take advantage of it and destroy as many towers as possible, rather than wasting time hunting them. Survival Guide – Part Conversely, if during the push phase the opposing team turns out to be stronger than expected, try to avoid to give him a chance to clear your entire team, retreating in a controlled manner as soon as the enemy is evident supremacy . In this way, you still have time to get back on defense and avoid, at least in part, a huge reversal of fortunes in the field. As regards the more general discussion, relating to when to start with the push phase, this should in theory low only once all the heroes are close to the maximum level, and already have a good number of quality items. Moreover, especially when the laning phase sees a certain supremacy by the enemy, break the lines and give away team to fight a little earlier than the Roadmap can also be a good idea, and solve some problems of supremacy in individual paths Dota 2 guide to survive. It is not said that a team that has dominated the laning phase is equally efficient in clashes 5 on 5, as long as there are striking individual episodes of feeding (ie heroes opponents who have scored a large number of killings, accumulating then objects and money with excessive speed). Clearly, a guide will never reveal exactly when is the exact time to take a certain decision and give away your offensive maneuvers Dota 2 guide to survive. Rely on your common sense and your instincts. Over time, you will learn the right timing. Above all, always be aware that a push wrong can be fatal in a short time for the game, so think very well before proposing, and if you listen to the counter team Dota 2 guide to survive .

Other objects are used instead to temporarily recover health and mana, or to provide other types of benefits in the field. Fundamental to each team is the purchase of at least a courier, a creature that can be sent by players of the same team to recover objects at a shop, and then evolve into a form more quickly. This is convenient both to avoid returning constantly according to new purchases, both to get quick access to shopping secrets, partially hidden in the jungle and can provide some of the more powerful items from those available.
