Probably alright with me, if I have internet. Might not be able to join until later though, if we decide we're going to do anything that night.

Same here, more likely than not. :)
I'm GMT -6, though, so ping times might be an issue for one or all of us. >:-P

So, how many are we expecting to play today? from what I could tell it is something like 5 or 6 people?

I'm thinking we'll only have 4.

Also I've now played the game four times and I suck. Also I would expect my suck ratio to increase, very slightly because I'm pretty close to maxed, as I'm going to have to play on a laptop without a mouse.

Wooo!

On first glance it looks to me like... 4 people? Oh well, more can always pop up. :P

I'm probably going to suck as well as my internet is kind of shitty at the moment... And I suck by default as Theis has seen. :P
Oh well! We'll be the suckiest team in history. :roll:

Event starting in about two hours! Be there or be square! (Dusk is so a square)

Are we going to meet up on skype or...?

That's why Co-Op vs. Bots was invented. So the sucky can learn to be ... slightly less sucky, at least. :P

Skype would be fine, or we could use Steam's built-in chat/conference-call stuffs. I'm not picky. :)

We can also just split up in two teams playing against each others. I should be able to figure something out creating a game in the lobby part :)

Alright, Theis has begun gathering everybody in a party- If you wish to join make sure to notify him through Steam. :)

Seems the laptop couldn't handle multi, only bot play. :wall:

Sorry for the time waste. Give me a week and a few and we can try again!

It's nothing Rodgeir. Sucks though. :(

Anyways, we played and me and Theis discovered we suck at this with Lunix basically winning for us. :P

Dusk briefly showed up but DCed so sorry he remains a square. :P

Hey! You try playing a game at 1 frame every 5-10 seconds! :P

Anyway, yeah, turns out phone internet DotA doesn't really work too well :roll:
Any chance we can try again next Saturday/Sunday, when I've got proper internets?

I would love to do something like this, but the only games I have that can do multi-player are ME3 and Star Ruler. This is not including MMOs.

If my new processor/mb/ram get here this week I'd be up for another game next weekend.

I was quite looking forward to it.

I'm enjoying the minecraft server. I'm building a port town on a small island about 6000 blocks south and 3500 blocks east of Spawn. Even making a lighthouse, using brick!

OK...... I checked Steam for DOTA 2 and it said that I already owned it, although I am 100% certain I have never bought it. So once I check it out and learn how to play I would be up for a game.

That is (al)most certainly the Spectator Client. You can watch other people's games, but not play in them. It's the Beta Pass (what M0rt/Theis are offering) that unlocks the client's ability to start/play matches.

Probably a little late, but ya, it'll be a spectator pass. Look maybe 20 posts back and you'll see where I said nearly the same thing as you...

Well Arydra let know if you need a pass. They're all like little puppies I need to get rid off... :P

Anyways... Might be able to join this Sunday if we're doing a dota event. We'll see.

Also... Apparently they made a age of empires II HD remake! With apparently support from Steam to launch multiplayer games... Just thought I'd mention it. I might buy it, but we'll see. Bioshock infinite, far cry 3 and a few other titles are also very high on the want list right now... :)
