Exams and sheet. Will have to slog for a month or two now. But then I will try getting keys for my friends, around 5 more, who will play Dota 2 for sure. That way we can kick mule. :D

The shop is confusing as hell in the beginning.

Yup, it is, but you can purchase stuff without having to shift your focus to the base. Also, the shop now shows a tree like structure of what can be made from an item or what items constitute a recipe and allows you to buy it there itself without having to browse around for the individual items. Also, you can set items as quick buy.

Don't lose heart. People used to tell me as well, but you won't learn unless you play. I am still not so good, but now people don't tell me anything.

Anyway, here's from one of today's match:

Tried to get all last hits on the enemy heroes. Would lurk around for a gank, wait for the right moment and then Blink strike the ones who are low on health followed by a coupla back stabs to finish em off.

Actually, Ursa and Juggernaut were noobs. Killed them both on 1-2 levels. Bara was no challenge either.

Your primary aim should be to survive and not kill. Keep some points in mind (I am not a very good player, perhaps someone can give you better points):

-Stock up on Tangos and Potions start game.
-Take a ranged hero and keep your distance from the action. Don't be all "Leeroy Jenkins". If your health is low, retreat, eat a couple tangos/potions and return. Try not to retreat to the fountain too often.
-Pair up with a hero who is a good tank or a good stunner (Tank will gather all attention, allowing you to take potshots at the enemy. Stunners can stun the enemy allowing you to take them down together.)
-Do not go in alone, always have backup, either of creeps or a fellow teammates. If you go alone, you will become a easy meal for gankers.
-Hug towers if you do not have cover.
-Keep an eye on the map. Look to the map every 5-6 seconds and observe the positions of all units, especially enemies.
-Keep and eye out for teammates calling out "Miss". That means that the enemy hero from that lane is MIA and could be moving towards another lane (or towards you for a gank). So, be careful. In such a case, if you have no cover, hug a tower immediately.
-Do not die, if you die, your team will become weaker, hence becoming a decisive factor in you losing. That's why your teammates go mad when you die.
-Play defensively. Try to farm often (with cover, of course) and level up. Undertake something dangerous only when you are strong enough.

BTW, what hero you usually play with? and what's your inventory?

I'd recommend you start with Sniper, since he has the longest range than any hero (can attack towers from out of the towers range, when the appropriate skill is maxed). So, max the range skill and take out enemies from a distance, without getting intimately involved in the action.

Make Lothar's Edge to escape from sticky situations.

Hero names are not changed, if you read the lore, their names are written there.

Also, Shadow demon is not nevermore. Shadow Demon was introduced in Dota 6.72, I think. Hence, incorporated into Dota 2. He's a very good at early game harassment.

Also, not many hero names have been changed. From what I have noticed:

Obsidian Destroyer = Outworld Destroyer.
King Leoric = King Ostarion

That's about it.

From todays game, featuring Harsha.

Never played DoTA much, is it much different from LoL? I heard it is a lot more punishing for newer players, which would you prefer?
