I agree 100%. Although I freely admit I'm a Blizzard fanboy so in my opinion unless Blizz wanted to sacrifice my first born son I'd pick them over Valve in anything lol.

Dota was just some silly hero mod until IceFrog came in. Look at the heroes Guinsoo introduced, they were so ridiculously imbalanced. He put zero thought into any kind of balanced gameplay and just introduced fun game breaking heroes.

True. I know I'm stating I'm a fanboy with my previous post, but I am a Blizzard fanboy. They've done a lot for PC gaming not saying Valve hasn't. However, Blizzard has done more imo. Every Blizzard game I bought I've enjoyed every second of it and Blizzard has never let me down. Valve just hasn't given me the same feeling blizzard has besides Half-Life 2.

Pretty much these.

Blizzard has done a lot for PC gaming.
Valve has done a lot for gaming.

Therefore Valve > Blizzard. wink.gif

What is important to remember here is that dota is a custom map made by people outside blizzard. If this person was working officially for blizzard, and they paid him to do so, blizzard would have rights to the name and everything related. However, blizzard does not own the work that people outside their company do in the same way photoshop does not own pictures you create, and canon pictures you take.

Its a huge difference.

I suppose that it was a gray area until the two parties agreed on its disposition, but now it's pretty black and white.

If you are going to nitpick on this sort of thing you may want to post more than a pair of sentence fragments. wink.gif I don't care as long as the sentence is understood. biggrin.gif
