How is VALVe ripping off a community project? They hired the two responsible for creating DOTA from WC3 and gave them amazing opportunity to use VALVe's resources to make a better game of a brand new genre. The original devs working on it is not ripping of, all VALVe did is capitalize.
Anyone who thinks he did, just doesnt know jack. Icefrog is talentless tool, who steals the work of others. Not to mention the fact he has lied about all kinds of stuff. I have no respect for him, or people that would hire him. I personally felt valve would be above doing something like that.
