10 Things Players Hate About Dota 2
Lina definitely isn't one of them.

8. The prickly community

I’ve been a gamer for a long time, since before I was even able to walk, and if there’s one thing I’ve noticed, is that people, for the most part, are jackasses. People are especially jackasses when it comes to games that have a steep learning curve.  

Dota 2 has a very high learning curve and probably one of the densest communities of jackasses I’ve ever known. Why? I think it has something to do with the game requiring a large commitment of time, as a single game of Dota 2 can easily take anywhere from 35-50 minutes. Because of this, and the high learning curve, players don’t want to feel like they’re wasting their time because you know, their time is so precious (doubtful).  

Also, it doesn’t help that E-Sports are a thing now, and competitive play is easily seen and digested through the miracle that is the internet. So now, these jackasses have some preconceived notion of how the game should be played and tend to feel superior to those who lack in-depth knowledge of the game.  

Whew, I need to take a breather here. Anyways, don’t be a jackass, jackass. The world is a harsh enough place as it is. Have fun, and play nice.
