Roughly a little over a year and a half ago, I was becoming bored of the habitual and mundane games I was playing, and decided to look to play others. One particular game grabbed my attention from the start, Dota 2. With nearly ten million players and a dedicated fan base, I decided to give it a try. I was hooked immediately.
