  • Locked game modes

    I am not sure where this thread was supposed to go, and I looked it up but some of the information seems outdated. I have had dota2 since the beta and I just happened to stick with the original for some reason. but now i have a new pc and dota2 works better on here so I like to play but I'm restricted from playing certain game modes. Ok fine, maybe I need to reach a certain level to unlock new modes, well I'm at level 4 and I should have unlocked a new game mode by now, but apparently I haven't. so what gives? I am kind of sick and tired of everyone constantly picking gondar/slark every single game. how does this teach people to play heroes when they pick the same damn hero every game? It makes no sense whatsoever. I can't pick the heroes i'm not too good with because i'm playing against "I am pro slark" every single game so I have to take the same damn counters game after actually makes me want to NOT play dota2 at all!

    Reach level 13 and you should have everything unlocked.

      Buy a 400% battlebooster off the steam market, find a reddit or vg chat channel and stack with other people who also have the booster = less games to get to lvl 13.

      Also if one of your friends has the other modes unlocked, he can queue them for you.

        So in other words I'm forced to pick and repick the same heroes game after game until I reach level 13??

          In my last 200 games I have mostly played meepo even when the enemy had ember spirit. No you are not forced to pick the same hero every game.

            You can't play ranked untill you are Level 13. There is no other gamemode which is locked or?

              AFAIK you cannot play modes like -AR or -RD right away on a fresh (level 1) account.

                Everytime you level up within level 1 and 13, new mode unlocks.

                  Just ask someone in a channel to let you queue with him, it should work I think.
                  A Dota player and a LoL player are in a bar. The Dota player says: "I think Dota is way better." The LoL player couldn't deny.
