a lot of people asking about how do i type all in hero picking/drafting, or how do i check ping. I told them to enable the console and they ask me how to enable console.

To enable console :
1. Right click on dota2 and click properties
2. Go to general tab
3. Click on set launch option
4. Type in "-console" (without the ")
5. Click Ok and close it.

Now everytime you start the game, you will have a console ready. To open and close console, press (`)

To type all in hero picking / drafting :
- press (`)
- type "say ....................................." (without the ")

To check ping :
- press (`)
- type Ping

That's the only thing about console that i know tho.
