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.

Installing the Garena or Garena Plus is very easy. The installation process is very simple, just run the setup then follow the instruction there after. Once you installed the messenger follow the step-by-step guide below.
