Dota 2 is doing rather too well for a game that hasn’t been released. According to Steam stats, it’s the second most played game on Steam right now, ahead of Counter-Strike: Source, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim and lots of other games that have actually been released. Dota 2 is currently in an ever-expanding beta that’s been running since late last year.

Dota is one of those games that a lot of people are completely unaware of but has a huge following worldwide. I know that CS:S is huge but I'm not surprised that Dota 2 is more popular than it.

No, it is Valve's now. Blizzard can use the Dota trademark noncommerically, in other words Blizzard and their fans can use the term but Blizzard cannot make a game using Dota in the name. This is why they changed the name of Blizzard Dota to Blizzard All-Stars. (Balls, lol).

Valve now has the rights to use Dota commercially which means they do not have to change the name of Dota 2. The long of the short of it is Valve essentially won the case and no longer have to worry about the Dota trademark and can use it however they like. Blizzard lost out and cannot use the Dota trademark in a game or other commercial means.

The two giants of the gaming world, Valve and Blizzard, have come to an agreement regarding the "DOTA" trademark. The short of it is that Valve can continue to use the name "DOTA" commercially, including Dota 2.

Blizzard, on the other hand, can use the term in a non-commercial way so that their own community can just use the phrase freely. Sort of like how "Kleenex" applies to all tissues? Yeah, sort of like that.

"Both Blizzard and Valve recognize that, at the end of the day, players just want to be able to play the games they're looking forward to, so we're happy to come to an agreement that helps both of us stay focused on that," said Rob Pardo, executive vice president of game design at Blizzard Entertainment. "As part of this agreement, we're going to be changing the name of Blizzard DOTA to Blizzard All-Stars, which ultimately better reflects the design of our game. We look forward to going into more detail on that at a later date."

"We're pleased that we could come to an agreement with Blizzard without drawing things out in a way that would benefit no one," said Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve. "We both want to focus on the things our fans care about, creating and shipping great games for our communities."

SO, how does Valve plan to to recoup the cost of development? It's amazing that the game has been in beta for such a long time and they haven't made a single cent from it (have they)? They can't love the fans that much, or do they? rolleyes.gif

Edit -

I think they also get money from sponsors when they put on tournaments but I could be wrong about that.
