Eul coined the name DOTA. He works for Valve now and never worked for Blizzard. He just started a mod.

Wrong form of "its" in the thread title. Looks very unprofessional.

I hope Blizzard learned an important lesson here. They own their games, they do not own our work. I would like to thank Valve and Riot for their foresight. Those guys are the best.

I was referring to Eul. He works at Valve now.
I never mentioned Ice, not sure where you got that from.

I think that when we talk about Dota we mean dota all-star. Eul made a map. Guinshoo made Dota allstar.

Riot sold it's trademark applications of dota, dota allstars, and defense of the ancient under the company Dota allstars LLC to Blizzard.

i dont think its a gray area tho, since blizzard never had anything to do with the dota name. eul made and coined dota, never worked at blizzard and now works for valve.

You're right, sorry. Either a mod will have to fix it or it will have to wait til I get home.

Valve shouldn't have won, Eul's version is so different from the current gameplay mechanics that popularized the game.
