    Wow, I didn't even know Warcraft 3's modding community still lived. I always figured Valve saw the modding community as dead, and therefore never release DotA 2. But I guess I was mistaken. It seems in Asia it is extremely popular.

    Although, personally, I could care less about DotA 2. Where the hell is Episode Three...?!

    I am tired of that game genre. But for those still into aos games this is great news. Once I did a quick google search for dota hacks and saw how easy it is to cheat, I lost all interest. If dota 2 gets rid of hacks I may come back to the genre. They have bots basically to play the game for you, even experience hacks, gold hacks. If this convention isn't played by these teams in person its really a 1 million dollar joke.

    So what is DOTA anyway??
     
  17. LOL is for noobs (not a bad thing, we all start somewhere). LOL players will find dota a lot more challenging. If you're a LOL player who has never touched dota and can become a high level player dota player, respect!

    Unfortunately, you need Warcraft 3 to be able to play it, so unless you do, just wait for dota2. To those who don't know what dota2 is, just wait for Valve to release the game then try it. In the beginning, prepare to die and get flamed a lot for bringing your team down. ;)

    If you can get past the steep learning curve, you'll find the team competition a very invigorating experience.
     
  18. I just think Dota 2 might just feel like a HoN port I could be wrong iwe will just have to wait and see :|
