This week my static LOTRO group was down to three and so it was suggested to skip LOTRO this week and play some DOTA 2 together.
As I mentioned in my Steam post, I tried DOTA 2 once before and had a horrible experience. I was willing to try it with friends though and we were going to be fighting bots so no one to call me names. No big deal right?
Why? WHY do I suck at this game so bad! It is so flipping frustrating!
I honestly have no idea what is happening 90% of the time or what I can do to help. I never found a tutorial how to play because even the starting screen confuses the crap out of me. Hoppy says there is one and that its not super helpful anyway.
Hoppy and Opidum tried to give me pointers. I swear to you I tried really hard to follow them. Didn’t much matter because I always ended up dead. Or it felt like my character had a mind of her own and would go head off to her death before I could stop it. The enemy bots could smell my fear and weren’t afraid to chase after and kill me while Hoppy and Opi killed them all.
I literally spent 30 minutes trying to figure out how to eat a tree, people. I am that bad. In my defense though WHO THE EFF EATS TREES!!?
I don’t understand anything in this game. I am useless and the entire thing makes me feel stupid. Not Dum cuz that’s awesome. Stupid.
Just to add to my frustration the last game my computer decided it was just done playing so I didn’t even get to see the end and kept entering and disconnecting the game until it was over.
Things I did like about the game are the adorable flying pony things. I basically just wanted to sit and play with them the entire game. They probably don’t eat trees or one shot me or tell me my bottoms are missing. WHY ARE MY BOTTOMS ALWAYS MISSING!?
Maybe I’ll go back and try to find the magical tutorial and try to learn all these basics that seem to be completely over my head. Maybe I’ll try to find a character that fits my play style like Hoppy suggested.
Or maybe I’ll just uninstall this game again and wash my hands of it. I’m happy for you who enjoy it but it just upsets me and I hate it.
P.S. If you leave a comment telling me how easy DOTA 2 is and that I’m lame for not getting it, know that I will likely replace your comment with a picture of a kitten or something. I can do that. Don’t make me abuse my powers!
Now excuse me, I have a feeling I better start googling pictures of kittens…
