What's Dota, you ask? Well... as a game, Dota has been around for quite some time now. It began its life as a simple Starcraft map known at the time as Aeon of Strife. However, once the much more advanced Warcraft 3 rolled around, it got rechristened as...

The fact that it’s completely and totally free to play in the way we wish all free-to-play games could be isn’t just one of the most generous propositions anywhere in gaming, it creates a level playing field where skill and cooperation is paramount. May the best team win.

The experience of playing Dota changes day by day--some evenings will be exhilarating, while others will kick your morale to the curb--but there are few games as worthy of your time investment as this. Those who choose to commit to Dota 2 will find many happy hours within this immaculate update.

Also, you always want a Bottle when in mid-lane, and runes spawn at 0:00 and again every two minutes. Practice last-hitting before you go online. And if you're jungling, memorise where the low-level Creeps are.

Free-to-play multiplayer games are only profitable if as many people as possible have access to them. So, it's hardly surprising that Dota 2 is not a particularly demanding title. It's really meant to run well on the lowest common denominator. Our little...

These differences probably won’t be enough to drag anybody obsessed with another game to DotA 2, but I get the feeling Valve hope to build a community from new players who use Steam. In the long run this might make combat for veterans a little too simple, but for now things seem quite balanced and, on the whole, relatively civil.

Womöglich verzichtet Valve bewusst darauf und nutzt stattdessen Spieler-Bewertungen und das Mentoren-System, um sich eine freundliche Community heranzuzüchten. Eine Community, die einen Neuling auch mal unterstützt, statt ihn anzupflaumen. Das wäre, für Dota-Verhältnisse, geradezu eine Revolution.

Since it’s free-to-play and available right from the Steam program, there’s no reason to think that it wouldn’t be a massive hit anyway. Thankfully though, there’s also a great deal of quality in there and the proof is that I couldn’t find one entirely negative thing to say about it.

Dota 2 es un juego mas estratégico e inteligente, sin dejar de lado la acción, gráficamente espectacular (artisticamente al mismo nivel) y con un gameplay mas lento.

Despite his aggression, he’d taught me something. Sometimes you want to play, not learn. But when you want to study, to master something, there are few finer, slicker classrooms than Dota 2.

Vi befinder os i sommeren 2010. Den amerikanske spilgigant Valve har netop annonceret, at de arbejder på efterfølgeren til en af alle tiders mest populære fan-modifikationer, WarCraft III-spiltypen Defence of the Ancients, og ingen kan rigtig blive enige...

„Dota 2“ ist im Jahr 2013 genauso wie seine Konkurrenten „League of Legends“ und „Heroes of Newerth“ ein ungewöhnlicher Titel. In Zeiten, in denen man als Spieler eher unterhalten als gefordert wird, ist das MOBA-Spielprinzip in den ersten Minuten...

Происхождение видов Впрочем, назвать DotA 2 «детищем Valve» — значит, как минимум, слукавить, ведь корни всей задумки идут еще от StarCraft. Точнее, от фанатской карты Aeon of Strife, заложившей основу DotA-жанра. Некоторые называют его MOBA...
