    That was my first impression after getting into the beta because the game took forever to load, and then I found out that my laptop doesn't have a graphics card good enough for it. All I could see was heroes/creeps/shop in BLACK and the terrain was GREEN on radiant, and BROWN on dire. It was a piece of crap, kind of like I was playing dota 2 in the matrix o_O

    But then I ported it to my dad's insane new laptop and OMGWTFBBQ I jizzed my pants. Seriously. Dota 2 is amazing.

    But here's a few random questions I had, thought it'd be cool if you could answer them.
    1. Are the heroes and creeps too small in your opinion? Or is it just me.
    2. What is the best mouse scroll setting to feel like dota 1?
    3. Do you use QWER or legacy keys?
    4. Does the ingame voice chat work yet? (haven't tried)
    5. Am I the only one who feels the font in skill description is TOO small?

    1.It looks awesome, and the size is correct
    2. MAX out your camera acceleration. to the right to have the warcraft 3 scrolling.
    3. Legacy ftw.
    4. Yes it works.

    I've only played once with my friends (solo practice otherwise) and we were using skype since we all were logged in right after a dota 1 clan match.

    Btw, how do I play practice with AI?

    Also, on QWER I tried it but I just can't get used to it D:
    My pinky finger hurts when I try to press 'a' to deny when using this setup o_O

    im not in beta and iirc there are 50% newfags
    also legacy keys ftw... already tried QWER with customkeys... undoable imo

    Scrolling as in, moving the camera around with the mouse

    Yeah I find QWER unduable too...

    I tried WERT and it was a bit better, but I keep getting confused with the legacy keys D:
    For example, I kept pressing R on WR for powershot but then she kept windrunning and then I was like
    FFFFFUUUUUUUU

    Agree with number 5

    Use QWER - better than memorizing the Legacy keys

    1. Are the heroes and creeps too small in your opinion? Or is it just me. Kinda just you.

    why need to memorize legacy keys when you memorized all already? :3

    Anyhow, what I hated the most in DOTA2 is mainly the interface at options, I can barely see the numlock hotkey :/.. But otherwise it's fine, except for being raped by sand king that deals epi damage of lvl 16 + aghs at lvl 6..

    Very pro tip --> Max out camera acceleration = dota 1 camera scroll :)

    Oh by the way, in the options for keyboard right under the skill part (where we can change our key settings-to qwer, legacy etc) there are some other boxes it says something like 'autotip 1, 2' or something like that. The font is too small

    If I click on any of them the game freezes for a bit and I don't even know what they are

    1. Just you.
    2. The middle.
    3. ASDF
    4. Yes, of course it works.
    5. It's small, but you should already have a general idea of what each skill does.
