It’s been three days since I removed the game which became an essential part of my daily life, something that had to be given time to no matter how busy, tired I was. Unlike many of the games I have played during my short life, Dota 2 has taken up most of my time – more than 1600 hours. It all started with a beta key for the game and then it sucked me in like no game has ever done before.
For the uninitiated, I shall give you some insight. Dota belongs to the MOBA ( Multiplayer Online Battle Arena ) genre. It’s complex and will take around 60 hours for someone to learn the basics of the game. The objective is simple – destroy the enemy stronghold along with your 4 team mates before the enemy team destroys yours. Like I said objective is simple but the game isn’t. I have never come across a game where there are so many things to calculate take into consideration.
