But, more importantly, it is that you can learn how to play on these castes, very, very cool. There are several reasons for this. For example, the duration of such a game is 10-15 minutes, i.e. even with a great desire - your little one - will not have time to bomb. With such a mini-game, you can pour with impunity at any time. Yes, you will make the game more tedious for the rest of the players, but again - they can stop playing, following you, or they can play to the end, since, as mentioned above, the game lasts about 15 minutes.
Such custom can help to develop a player’s skill level without sacrificing the account’s winrate and teammates, and can also make players feel better after a series of defeats. In Dota2 - there are a lot of mini-games, but only some of them will help hone your game skills. Which ones - you will find out in our article.

They inflict 32 units damage, have 250 units health, 3 units armor and 120 units speed of movement. These zombies will follow you around the map. Killing zombies gives 20-35 units gold
The fewer kills your team have, the better item you will get from the package. Items can be transferred to an ally or sold in a store. Play on heroes who have high nuke and escape potential and who can hold out for a long time in battle. For example, Queen Of Pain and Storm Spirit. Do not play heroes who are highly dependent on objects or creeps. For example, Specter and Chen. Skills like Song of the Siren or the Chronosphere can help you get a piece from a package. A good strategy will be to stand aside from the fight in order to steal the murder in the future.
Skillshot Wars is a custom coaching skill in a geometrical progression.

The game involves 8 people. Before each of them is a field of 8 to 8 cells, as well as 8 spare cells. A donkey courier is walking around the field - you can assume that it is you. A bar above means your health supply, and you’ll have selected items in your backpack. But the donkey will not participate in the battles.
The task of the players: to buy heroes in the shop and collect their army, which each round will fight with a random opponent or creeps. The cost of characters varies from 1 coin to 5. You can earn money to buy them thanks to victories in battles. At first, a player can put on the field only one hero, but with the leveling of the donkey (also for money) the limit will increase.
You cannot control your characters during the combat stage, they will use their cooldown abilities themselves. Therefore, the whole point of the game is to properly form your army and place it on the field.
Each character belongs to a class and race that has its own advantages. The combination of characters of one class or race gives them significant gains. In addition, the characters can be pumped. To do this, you need to have three identical figures on the field, and they will be folded into one reinforced. At the same time, his characteristics will increase. So characters can be upgraded to level 3 (stars). In this case, the more often the players buy one character, the less often he appears in the shop. So if everyone rushed to collect Ax, then it is worth considering whether you need this hero, if there is a chance that you will never pump it?
The success of the game will depend on how skillfully you will combine heroes with different characteristics and the number of stars to give them the necessary bonuses.
The game consists of two stages. First, for 30 seconds, participants buy heroes and place them on the field. Then within one minute there is a battle between random contenders. The loser takes damage, which depends on the number of surviving enemy heroes and their level. The number of lives for each player can be seen in the table on the side. Victory wins the one who remains the last survivor. But in fact, players are happy and getting into the top 3.
