So, I've started learning Dota 2, given that I've never played a MOBA or whatever the hell they are called it was and is quite intimidating. However I was pleased to learn that I can create a private server and populate it with bots to learn how to play. I also found that their is a 5 player co-op versus bots mode that allowed me to play with real people without so much fear of being ridiculed for making a mistake. So far I'm having a blast though I haven't found a particular character that sticks out for me. Luckily there are at least 40 already it seems.

All that said I have like 6 beta keys to give away, so if anyone else wants to jump in and give it a try let me know and i'll be happy to hook you up. One thing to say about this beta is that it is a Valve game which means this beta is better than most fully released and patched games out there.

That's good to hear. I played the original Dota pretty heavily, as well as one of its predecessors Tides of Blood. I've been out of that for a while now and a bot server would be a good way to get back in. I'm interested in giving it a whirl.
Anyone seen my banstick?
