To describe Dota 2 to my mom, my family
or someone who asks me, it's something
where I don't even know where to start.
Best of luck to anybody trying to fit Dota into 100 words.
It's really hard to explain.
Dota 2 is five people trying to take down
another team of five's base.
I think it's like a virtual chess where there's
a lot of actual mechanics involved.
DOTA is like no other game.
There's 110 different individual pieces of chess.
And now you have to learn everything that
that chess piece can do, and that chess piece
can do now four things.
You don't have turns, you just move all the time.
Then you have a throne to defend.
You have to be able to have really fast reaction time.
You have to have great hand-eye coordination.
It's something similar to capture the flag.
I've heard that people compare it to basketball,
because it has this team aspect.
You have to work together, you have to overcome differences.
I call it Wizard Net Football (laughs)
There is so much depth to the game
that it's almost impossible to simplify.
Once you learn it, you'll never give it up.
