Default DotA 2 sucks?


That was my first impression after getting into the beta because the game took forever to load, and then I found out that my laptop doesn't have a graphics card good enough for it. All I could see was heroes/creeps/shop in BLACK and the terrain was GREEN on radiant, and BROWN on dire. It was a piece of crap, kind of like I was playing dota 2 in the matrix O_o

But then I ported it to my dad's insane new laptop and OMGWTFBBQ I jizzed my pants. Seriously. Dota 2 is amazing.

But here's a few random questions I had, thought it'd be cool if you could answer them.
1. Are the heroes and creeps too small in your opinion? Or is it just me.
2. What is the best mouse scroll setting to feel like dota 1?
3. Do you use QWER or legacy keys?
4. Does the ingame voice chat work yet? (haven't tried)
5. Am I the only one who feels the font in skill description is TOO small?

1.It looks awesome, and the size is correct
2. MAX out your camera acceleration. to the right to have the warcraft 3 scrolling.
3. Legacy ftw.
4. Yes it works.

I've only played once with my friends (solo practice otherwise) and we were using skype since we all were logged in right after a dota 1 clan match.

Btw, how do I play practice with AI?

---------- Post added at 07:13 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:12 AM ----------

Also, on QWER I tried it but I just can't get used to it D:
My pinky finger hurts when I try to press 'a' to deny when using this setup O.o

Yeah I find QWER unduable too...

I tried WERT and it was a bit better, but I keep getting confused with the legacy keys D:
For example, I kept pressing R on WR for powershot but then she kept windrunning and then I was like
FFFFFUUUUUUUU

Agree with number 5

Use QWER - better than memorizing the Legacy keys

why need to memorize legacy keys when you memorized all already? :3

Anyhow, what I hated the most in DOTA2 is mainly the interface at options, I can barely see the numlock hotkey :/.. But otherwise it's fine, except for being raped by sand king that deals epi damage of lvl 16 + aghs at lvl 6..

Oh by the way, in the options for keyboard right under the skill part (where we can change our key settings-to qwer, legacy etc) there are some other boxes it says something like 'autotip 1, 2' or something like that. The font is too small

If I click on any of them the game freezes for a bit and I don't even know what they are

Yes, it fucking sucks at the moment. But it's in beta, so don't assume early.

sucks when you hover your mouse on your opponent or allies.
no green or red circles appear, makes it hard to identify who you're attacking

I have to agree with the font in the status bar. Kind of small for me, a little enlargement would do.

Also the gold number position.

Nah, position you can get used to. The white fonts on gold background without any outline whatsoever is impossible to read, even with a 21-inch screen.

I was thinking moving to legacy keys.
Played Dota 2, then original Dota again. I was pressing Q,W,E and R all the time.

So. The game sucks because your laptop cannot handle it? Not sure if srs.

We recently got our own key. Can say that the game definitely does not suck. But the only thing to beware of is matchmaking, with all the new beta keys out, you will either run into a bunch of noobs, or have a buncha noobs on your team, or just run into a bunch of ex dota/hon comp players No need to worry about LoL players because they are bad
