In short: stay close to your brother, try to understand his world and game, not find a way to disable DOTA
I'm trying to understand him all the time: Partial success.
What about the game ... I ain't gonna really block it. I just want to stop the gaming madness in the critical situation.
In long. I think your last message point that you have a problem with your brother, not he with DOTA. Frankly I'm not sure you try to understand (from your messages) his passions with game. Game are rewarding but also demands time. A lot!
I definitely have the problem with my brother as well as he definitely has the problem as gaming (especially Dota) addicted
there's a crystal silence in the room. it lasts half an hour, hour, suddenly:
C-r-r-rap!!! Wadda hell?!! You, son of a bitch, what you're doing?!!! Where you're going now??!!! Stupid bastard!! Get f*ck you out of here!! Bitch!!!
and so on ... Even now when I'm writing, this the similar happen again ... "his passions"... it should rather think about his mental health ...
How old is your brother?
18 years old.
He's at school? University?
He's in college.
Where the money and food come from?
Does he have a girlfriend?
AFAIK, not. Anyways, he is at home all the time.
Does he have friends? How much real-world friends and how much in DOTA?
A friend of mine stay in WOW loop for three years before he leaves and even now talks about Wow, not the game, but about virtual friends from all over the world.
He has. One real-world friend is from the college. A few friends are from the school. The rest are the DOTA-friends.
It's hard to understand but virtual relations could be powerful and meaningful in many ways.
And we are talking right now, "wasting time" on an online forum on line game. Maybe your brother cannot understand why you ask help or wasting time here, instead to go with him and play DOTA together
A lot of questions, I know
Well, Excuse my familiarity but It seems to me that I speaking with a preacher ... "play DOTA together" ... Do you repeat this after all I posted here?
