[Official] DotA 2 Information and Discussion Thread.

post #1 of 12493
Thread Starter 




What is DotA 2?

According to Wikipedia,
Quote:
Dota 2 is an upcoming action fantasy strategy video game being developed by Valve Corporation. It is the stand-alone sequel to the popular Warcraft III custom map Defense of the Ancients[/I]." Wikipedia goes on to mention that "The game is comprised exclusively of session-based online multiplayer activity, with the primary objective of each match being for the teams to destroy their opposing team's fortified stronghold called an Ancient Fortress. Each player assumes the role of a "hero", who is given the responsibility of participating in team combat, which generally takes place along a series of lanes that connect their opposing bases, lined with defensive towers. The gameplay elements are largely incorporated from Defense of the Ancients, with the game's lead designer (known only as "IceFrog") being the longest-serving and current developer of the Warcraft III mod. Dota 2 marks Valve's first fantasy, as well as Action RTS game.

Yeah me too. Seems like not too many people are getting excited about it here at OCN so I'm trying to get it some attention. Hopefully this thread picks up after a few updates etc.

That said, I think that Zues screenshot is amazing. Not my favorite hero but probably my favorite screen at this point.

Edit - No new information at this point on 9/13 other than IceFrog's post from last night which you can read in the OP.

As long as Spectre plays like he did on the tourny... I'll be happy.
