DotA Consumes my Soul

Postby Florp Incarnate » Mon Aug 22, 2005 12:25 pm

Well, the title lies. I sold my soul for a ham sandwich in 4th grade. This game IS heavily addicting though. Enough so that I had dreams about it last night, and spent 2 intermittent hours reading the DotA forums today at work (yes my job is slow, ha ha).

Anyone who isn't already part of our Teamspeak DotA crew, and has Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne, join us!

I enjoy it but I feel dirty playing with you guys and all your hack-ola stuffs you do to the game and Bnet.

You do know that WC3 & TFT are like $10 bargain bin specials now don't you?

I'd need hax tips in advance so I don't join whatever CRAZY club pappy was in. That gives me chills! And I second Byte's claim! I tried to install one of those crazy hax0r intarweb things,and it broke my internet!

It's a two minute process regardless of whether you have legit or not, and we have about a 15 person playerbase already using this system. Join the fun!

My (ex)roommate was heavy into DotA, but I wasn't the person to get all warm 'n fuzzy with WarCrack. I did enjoy watching him, though. Damn FPS addiction. :>

Ah you get used to Ghost's sexual harassment after a while, he's harmless really.

Which is to say, a bunch of us usually play DotA together in the evening, hop on TeamSpeak some time.

Silly owl! MP5_ghost.

Velour darling, my intoxicating British love dumpling, you know you can just call Mp5 a bighead in rebuttal and he usually shut's up :P

Yeah clinkz is cool. I've been highly satisfied playing Naga Siren lately. Getting a manta sytle on her is damn good recipe for complete ownage.

As mentioned above, all those who love dota should join myself and others in the evening on the OGC ts server!

Last night was really, really fun. I assume our newfound players will be playing more to overcome their slight teething woes rather than run off, and we shall see you all tonight?

His computer crushed him first game. Then in his second game he ran around stomping nothingness after running back to the fountain lots. I'm sure if he keeps playing he'll do well as he didn't die all that much for being new.

Again I'd like to bump this thread... anyone in the community with Warcraft 3 and Frozen throne is welcome to drop by Teamspeak in the evenings and play DotA with the crew. It's an intense game with teamwork at it's core.

I should also point out that WC3 + FT battle chest is like $30.

ALL DOTA PLAYERS ARE NOW USING LEGIT WC3. NO HACKED BNET NEEDED.

I will point out, as a recent foray-er into the DotA crowd, that never, ever listen to MP5_Ghost when he says they aren't playing. Becuase it's a trick. A dirty, rotten trick aimed at getting you banned from all normal games. Here's an example of how this devious ploy works:

You log in to WC3 to see about some DotA goodness.
You log onto Teamspeak, note the 4 guys hanging out in the DotA channel.
You ask, "Hey, are we going to play some DotA".
MP5_Ghost replies, "Nah, not enough people. We're all playing <fill in the blank>".
You say, "Ok."
You join a random DotA server (since you logged on to play some DotA).
5 minutes of DotA passes (so you're right at the beginning still)
MP5_Ghost whispers to you in game, "We're going to play DotA now, come join us".
You are now faced with leaving the game and getting on the banned list, or flipping MP5 the finger.

As the victim of this on multiple occasions, I thought I should warn the greater forum of the attrocities performed by MP5_Ghost.

And Gimp is funny. Funny as in haha funny, not a chicken running around choking funny.
