I watched a couple DOTA 2 games and was not impressed. RoTT and LoL look much better IMHO but I will have to give DOTA 2 a try because I loved DoTA.

Anyone else in the Dota2 beta? I just got my invite email, will try later this week. Total noob at it, any pointers would be appreciated. How big was the download size?

Wow ya, I tried my first coop bot match tonight. We came back to win but by sheer luck. I don't understand it: is it just a pseudo-tower defense game, where you slowly push forward as you rank up and wipe out the enemy base? And that's it?

I was so confused at the start, didn't know how to eat trees to regain health, my eat ability wouldn't activate cause it wasn't in the right toolbar, and i don't know if I Was using the best weapon, or how to use other abilities from the Store. The game escalated so fast the other guys wouldn't talk me through it.

I checked the playdota forums but they seem to be aimed at dota1, and I couldn't find a thread explaining those basic gameplay commands.
I can see why it's free2play, the gameplay is so old school, but the menu interface is awesome.
