Famous community member Purge has made a new ongoing Youtube series "Learn Dota"
Beyond that there are dozens of learning resources, but the game takes hundreds of hours to learn and thousands to master with people have been playing for decades. Simply speaking it's a team based game of 5v5 where you kill heroes and towers in an effort to kill the enemy main base structure. The how, when, where, and why of it all is the nuance that creates all the excitement since there are countless strategies to win and counter strategies to every hero.

Okay so I'm going to be completely bogged down with all the games I want to play... 7.07, Destiny 2 PC, Super Mario Odyssey and I really want Assassin's Creed Origins.

So... what kind of economy changes are necessary to bring back hard scaling cores into the competitive meta? I wanna see some Chaos Knights one-shot squishy supports.

Shadow demon and elder titan need buffs/reworks, they're just garbage to play
Also most heroes with 2/3 passives need some merging (hello WK)
