Let’s Keep DotA Clean – Don’t Cheat!

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

mop and bucket

There’s many text on Internet about cheating in DotA. Some evil authors writes about tricky ways to cheat in Garena. I call you avoid that dirty business. Don’t cheat in DotA games, even if you think it’s just a couple of times for fun. When there’s many people just trying it for fun it creates atmosphere like “they all cheat, so why shouldn’t I?”. And it birth the growing snowball of cheating. So, please, just enjoy the pure fun of DotA and resist desire to cheat if you see someone is playing dirty in your game. That’s weak people, don’t pay attention to them. Just forget about cheats and enjoy DotA :)

P.S. You can tell your opinion in comments.

Roshan is a highly competitive and integral portion of DotA that should not be underestimated. Whether it’s to obtain an early extra survival item and team gold as someone like Lycan, Ursa or even someone like Undying, or a lategame buff to your carry/central hero, it’s important to incorporate several important factors:

1. Roshan/Rune Awareness: Having vision over this area is quite important, many players neglect this when there is an early Roshan, giving up both a free kill and 1000 gold or so. This is a must have in games with Lycan, Ursa. If the enemy Ursa has a Vlads or is reasonably levelled, (use -ma and hero clicking to check), begin scouting out the area on occasion. Making a few extra steps when you scout/go for the bottom rune won’t hurt if you decide against warding.
