Well, I hate to say it, but blocking DOTA would probably not really help much.

If he really is addicted, he will find ways around the block or turn to something else (another game, whatever). Nobody can really help him, before he realizes, that he is hurting himself. This unfortunately mostly only happens when facing bad consequences (e.g. getting thrown out of college, loosing girlfriend etc.)...

Then again, maybe he's unhappy in college and getting thrown out is for the better, or this is just "flirting with disaster" and he will get off his butt alone - who knows...

There was a similar discussion on reddit:

I don't know is it good advice but:
find more fast game then Dota
From fast game you tired faster, + they more rewarding for brain
-so after some time it will be hard return to Dota where matches can be 1 hr long

Does this help with game addiction – not really but it will help decrease time spending on it

p.s I can’t say that problem in Dota – you can find many same stories about
Wow, L2, LoL, Diablo 3, CS, even minecraft..
Flappy bird?

Irs not only adrenaline addiction,
its also communication addiction – like Stay all day in some Chat, Forum, social network
(and social network also have “find something new” addiction)
Man this world full of addictions Sad

It's very kind of you to try and help your brother this way.
Something you might try is to get your brother addicted to making games rather than playing them. That's how I transitioned from gamer to amateur coder.
Here is an interesting article about what makes games addictive, which might make him see the pointlessness of game addiction and the hooks that he is falling for:
Good luck!

Crap, actually I really like speech bubbles !
I think they can be fun and also add empathy for the characters.

Looks, so far, once again great! With quite some more enemy types, of course.  Smiley

Those speech bubbles... are you going to add any more complex system behind them?
Because right now, they seem like they would feel a lot more like spammy bot information than like actually informative in the final game...

Yeah not a real fan of the speech bubbles.. they are probably getting removed pretty quickly Wink

IMHO making games should be fun.  Wink
It is - but without ppl feedback(fan's) after some time it become not such fun at all)
(some times its 1-3 month some time 6) - but its moment that will come

so it's also important to find at least 10 ppl

And JGO - wrong place for this - we have low ppl population + many make own projects and simple don't have time ^^
maybe tigsource and other forums can help

p.s its very hard make games for customers-programmers they see every bug and any mistake you do =)
pp.s And when your bored from one project - you always can start new one - so simple Wink

Gentlemen! (and Ladies, of course)

First and foremost I must admit that most likely I came to the wrong place with my question and it is strange to read this post from the person who has close enough (so far) relation to the gaming.

Nevertheless, with pain in the heart I'm knocking in all the doors asking for help to solve my problem which name is DOTA and, maybe. all the online (multiplayer) computer video games.

One guy ( which is my, say, brother ) is abandoned all his life, including learning in the college for playing in DOTA up to 14 hours per day ( sometimes even more )

I tried different technical means to prevent him from over-playing but they give no result by different reasons.

In short, can anybody give a hint how to block DOTA in LAN in such way that my participation in that will be hide? otherwise all the efforts is lost...

Thanks in advance

That's great news!

Please renew as soon as possible, before you lose ownership. The company you registered the domain with might take ownership and put it on the market, at which point the asking price will most likely be a few hundred bucks.
