When it comes to Dota 2, you usually have one thing in mind: the different heroes. There are so many of them, and all of them are free to play - looking at you League of Legends! And thank you, Valve. But there's one downside to this: The selection is huge and new players get lost way too easily. Where do I even begin? Do I want to play as a support or as carry? Who is this jungler guy everybody's talking about? Which item do I have to build first? And who is killing Roshan on my team? It's tempting to get overwhelmed and just quit, especially when you feel like a moron for not knowing every hero. But all that struggle is a thing of the past now, at least if you keep watching our guides!

In this guide, you won't get the usual babbling about details and strategies that you won't get anyway, let's be real. Instead, you get a short and snappy overview of all the things that really matter. In the beginning, there is nothing better and you have to learn about as many heroes as you can. Not only to play them yourself but to know what to expect when they are on the enemy side! Everything else is just learning by doing, or you can check out more detailed guides on our website.

Honestly, you have to at least have a few favorites and a basic understanding of your preferred role, otherwise you'll be lost anyway. That's what we're here for. So then, pusher, nuker or support, what shall it be? Either way, you'll rock this!
