nope, HON didnt steal a community operated project, or try to trademark a mod.
I only bash valve when they deserve it. Which is pretty much DOTA, and the fact that they dropped lfd1 fast and went on to create l4d2 instead. Other than that i have no problem with valve. They make good games, just not ones i am interested in.
Give it a rest VALVe is a company like any other trying to make money. The difference with VALVe is they are actually really awesome to the PC community where others fail.
Plus, VALVe did not steal anything if you think Icefrog did thats fine but VALVe hired him after he took over DOTA. All VALVe did was hire a guy who took over dota. If you wanna blame icefrog fine but VALVe dident.
Plus, had you actually done your homework you would realize if VALVe was doing anything wrong then why do they have the ok from Blizzard?
Bottom line your a hater and thats all there is to it. VALVe is awesome, you no like? VALVe no care.
