    Its Dota. Not Doto. And do you have Warcraft 3 ? If you do , then install Warcraft 3 Reign of chaos, Followed by Frozen Throne, then download the dota map from www.getdota.com

    Oh alright. Are you playing on Garena ?

    Anyways, good hero to start with is Rikimaru. But, you might get a little stick because Riki is quite popular with the pros also. Another good hero is Centaur or Axe. Or Lion. All you have to do with lion is just Stun, then ulti, and repeat

    If you have just started its worth considering the multiple dedicated games that aim to copy dota. I wont say which is best just that you have a lot of options

    Nono. I dont agree there. HoN or LoL are both not as good as DoTA itself. DoTA is still uber-cool.

    Dota is an old game so I'm assuming a lot of players are already pros. It'll be hard for you to get used to it.

    I recommend League of Legends which is very much like DotA. It's free, has a large player base and you can even do Co-Op vs Bots so you can learn the game much easier.

    I don't want to get into which is better both have their strength and flaws but I would say being able to reconnect to a game is probably one of the best things about the competitors.

    Try AI maps, and play with friends on LAN to get used to it. You'll get destroyed and flamed online. I would know, I'm one of those ******s that do it. Good heroes to start with are gerenal tanky heroes (normally strength) and preferably with a stun (Leo, Centuar) or ones with invisibility (Nerubian Assassian (agi), Gondar (agi) )

    I already have a Garena account, I used to play a game like dota but it's in Chinese(The game is about the Sengoku period http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sengoku_period), and I want to start playing dota because my cousins go to school in Malaysia, and they all play dota over there.
    Thx for teaching me, I will learn more by playing with random players online.

    Drax, Clinkz and Lion are the best heroes to start with, particularly lion. I'd definitely start with ranged heroes initially.

    when I taught my friends dota I told them to pick 'drow ranger' or 'centaur'. But it doesn't matter really. Any hero is OK as you will get stomped quite a lot in the beginning anyways. Go on playdota website and read around in the strategy forum so you get a feel for how you can use different build strategies for heroes.

    Don't start with invoker.

    but this is why icefrog is currently developing DotA 2. so HoN and LoL can go into the trash again for good.

    The game is awesome! actually, I started about 6 years ago as well. but really captains mode started to piss me off and i just stopped playing the game. haven't played it since 6.59 which i think came out over a year ago.
    Will give dota 2 a shot though.

    I've played both HoN and LoL quite a lot recently, and I can still say that DoTA is still the best. Even with the maphackers. DoTA is a lot more easier to learn than HoN and HoN is so fast paced. Same applies to LoL
