Is Dota 2 Suitable for Beginners?

If you are a newbie and wants to explore the world of online gaming, there is no doubt that Dota 2 will give you a perfect start. Although it seems overwhelming for the new players, the developers still made sure that they will be given the opportunity to enter their multiplayer matches and enjoy the game moving forward. Valve has added two exciting features for them. The first one is the limited hero selection, while the other one is suitable for players with better scores.

There is a selection of 20 heroes for the new players that they can use during their first 25 matches. This rule is made so that the new players won’t get overwhelmed by the 114 hero selections that Dota 2 has in total. The available heroes specially developed for new players are:

  • Witch Doctor
  • Zeus
  • Sven
  • Sniper
  • Jakiro
  • Tidehunter
  • Wraith King
  • Viper
  • Luna
  • Axe
  • Bristleback
  • Dragon Knight
  • Lion
  • Clinkz
  • Death Prophet
  • Lich
  • Juggernaut
  • Ogre Magi
  • Shadow Shaman
  • Phantom Assassin

Since these heroes like Wraith King, Axe, and Bristleback were designed for new players, you should expect that they also come with easy-to-understand kits. They have straightforward functionality and heroes like Witch Doctor, Lion, and Lich features a dynamic balance between survivability and utility. Other heroes such as Sniper, Death Prophet, and Luna also bring quick progress aside from being easy to understand. With these qualities in mind, we can say that these heroes are not complicated to use while their functionality doesn’t require a great experience for anyone to understand how to use them. You could use them if you want to practice the strategies you have in mind.

Valve also has a goal to improve the social atmosphere of the game. They match the new players with others who have already established a good behavior in the game so that the newbies will also get challenged. That also allows both parties to achieve an excellent social experience while they are in the process of mastering the game.

This regulation will hone the skills of the players until they familiarized the turnarounds. Once these new players will also be able to maintain a good behavior in the game and have mastered some of the rules of the game, they will in turn, advance to a more complicated gameplay in Dota 2. By that time, they are ready to face a bigger responsibility in the game while maintaining their social relationship with the other players.
