Here is the simple guide on how you can play dota using garena so you would not have to play over and over against insane AI available on latest dota maps. When playing dota on garena you need fast and reliable internet connection available in your country like PLDT DSL if you are connecting coming from the Philippines. Unfortunately, in the Philippines I was able to enter dota game created on garena, but I was not able to play since my globe broadband internet is so slow and often lag.

Anyway, here are the simple steps with pictures so you would not experience any difficulty following instructions.

    hey barry you need to match the version of your warcraft to the version of what is required in your room. In my case here in the philippines we use version 1.26, in your country it is different or same im not sure. you can find out what version they are using by reading the title when you enter your room or just ask the people there. you may need a warcraft version switcher, try google it. Good luck and merry christmas to all!
