Probably not. They'll probably bring out easy mode from Dota 1 sometime I guess, which I've heard is faster.

It certainly doesn't last as long as Dota, unless you make an effort to not destroy the enemy base. Towers don't regenerate health, and the game doesn't have any backdoor protection either. Of course, it depends on other factors like what characters you choose etc (protip: Lonestar ends games fast)

I've heard that Bloodline Champions is sort of like a small scale MOBA as well, but I never played it myself so you can take that suggestion with a grain of salt.

bloodline champions is strictly pvp. I didn't like it much, but it's free and worth a try. basically just dota style combat in short arena matches, I guess would be the best way to describe it.

league of legends has a capture the point style game mode, you start out at level 3 and you gain gold gold and xp at a much faster rate. matches in that last around 20-30 minutes but it lacks the tactical feel that makes the genre good.

if you don't have 40 minutes to an hour to play a match then this genre isn't really for you. you're probably looking for something else.

i like bloodlines but its not the best of games. It's fun though
games are much faster than dota if thats really what you're looking for but there's only players, its just a little arena fight type thing and healers can make a match drag on

I played 3 times with slark
1st went with vanguard, did horribly
2nd im9 said "just build a yasha or somethign" so i went yasha-deso, had some kills but our team was people who cant play so we lost
3rd yasha-deso-animeblade, 29 kills, gg

That one is quite good, but the lack of character progression makes it too much rock-paper-scissor.

Well, from the games people recommended i've played all, so maybe the kind of game i'm looking for doesn't exist. ):

What i'm trying to say is that, in Bloodline Champions, if you choose hero A it will always lose to hero B and there's no way you could change or avoid that. While in DotA there are ways to overcome it, or at least part of it.

Also that's not entirely true. Heroes in BLC are certainly weak to some other archetypes, but no one hero "always" kills another. It's a lot more skill-oriented.

I was just notified that I can participate in DOTA 2. Does anyone have some tips for me? I played the original maybe two times. I'm a nub. ;_:

Just remember to be EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS, try to last-hit creeps (including your own creeps, to deny your opponents) and start with games against bots.

Good luck!

So I got around to playing one game last night against bots. Protip, don't take sleep aid medication and then try to play a game you're unfamiliar with.
