If you don't mind muting half your team or your opponents every match DOTA2 can be fine but the learning curve is huge.
    Well, I think you are talking about every online game ever made here. There are people of "questionable maturity" in every game and unfortunately Dota 2 is no exception.

    Game itself is very difficult but fun though.

      I play mainly Dota 2 but I am interested into testing other moba-like games.
      I do.
      i5 4x3,2ghz, Ati 4870 (yeah, weird setup), Xubuntu 15.04
      Settings all low (i dont like pretty graphics in multiplayer-games anyway), 1080p, mesa drivers + gallium-nine results in 70-120 fps.

      Everything works perfectly so far. No glitches, no crashes. Really amazing considering the game is quite demanding/badly optimised (don't trust the 'official' system-requirements).
      If you can't use gallium-nine, make sure, you're using a CSMT enabled version of wine. I was playing the closed beta without the Ati-Card on my Intel HD 4000 (?) and got between 28 and 60 fps that way.

      I added a couple of native libs via PlayOnLinux which were recommended for SC2 (same engine). Not sure if they are necessary.
