G'day AJSA, fellow Dota 2 players and anyone else reading this

The forums have become quite the mess over the past couple months so I'm doing something I should have done a long time ago.

This thread is going to be my submissions of old threads, posts and links that have appeared previously in the AJSA's Dota 2 forum but have since been dragged down and lost.

You're free to add any threads/posts you've found but I will be moderating this thread so please be serious. This is a thread to help people see what a great community we have and hopefully help people along the way.

Red titles are very important, Orange are important, Blue are less important but still something I felt was needed in here. Pink are what I found fun, less informative but still something I wanted to put here.

SPECIAL thanks to Thrower for helping me out with this, took me a while to dig into the forums so his help was super valuable!

Edit: For future additions I'll insert the date I added the link to this thread

Well this is cool to see. Lots of Nostalgia for me, especially one where I said I was 400 hours old. Did not think I would see so many posts from me. Fucking go offline for one week....

 

Still, it's a nice thing to read, and newer players should find this shit informative, albeit long. So yea, good job! Dem 3 hours of your life totes worth.

This is a great idea fool. This could be a good way to get the LoL forums a little more organized too since they are quiet dead.

Thanks for the kind words man, it was a lot of effort to dive into 8 pages to find the good stuff. But it was definitely worth it if it helps newer members of the Guild.

I didn't mean to say it like that :P, more like i wasn't as useful as I could've been in the thread. I was playing a game of doto at the time i think.

Great job with the thread, very nice compilation. I am also appreciative of the thread mention and giving it the label of epic haha. The forum does need some cleaning up I believe, at least with the pinned threads (perhaps unpin any outdated or unnecessary ones). Surprised by how many threads you posted, quite a lot of patience in doing so I imagine :P

 

I am still awaiting the next major patch (which will be after The International) to make a new thread, so I am waiting patiently.

There's a ton of great stuff posted on the AJSA in the past and also a ton of...less great stuff. I just felt it was needed as the forums have been pretty dead for a while.

Thanks for the kind words friend :)

 

Edit: Also the "epic" was because it's literally the most helpful thread on the forums for new players. Hell even some of the stuff in there I've found useful and I consider myself average at the game.

Oh and the new patch will no doubt bring Techies, so prepare to weep over your keyboard while you type up that thread!

I'm glad you thought of the thread so highly. I would have loved to have had these resources when first starting out on DotA 2. Of course I had playdota from the All-Stars and some experience from playing the beta UMS of DotA in WC3. This game has one of the steepest learning curves so having these resources becomes very useful (although not the steepest hehe). 

 

As for Techies it is pretty much guaranteed he is being released after the event. I would be surprised though if they do not add oracle as well since his skin is already designed, the skill animations are already in the game and he was originally the furthest completed for the remaining 5(?). When techies is released, I probably will only play -SD, -AR, or -ARDM. I am also most likely going to make another smurf account (so... 4 accounts now lol...) specifically for techies.
