It indeed will be possible to make a DotA-style map in SCII. However it will take enormous amounts of time and effort for it to be anywhere near a stable map. There are so many things that would need to be done...Create heroes with levels that have inventory slots and abilites...Create items literally from scratch...Terrain...Creeps...Make the heroes and creeps give and/or receive experience points...Theres just so much that has to go into it that it would be a long time before it takes a hold of SCII like it has War3. Besides, we don't even know if the editors of DotA will be taking it to SCII. I would rather see a standalone DotA myself but that is another story.

I dont think dota is really good enough to be a standalone game. I have played war3 alot and having one unit being so crucial to winning is flawed. SC had the 3 races balanced perfectly and they went away from that to get flashy with heroes units/skills. I think they will make it more intuitive and simple to put items/experience into the game since MANY players have asked the devs for tools to create a DOTA for SC2.

Warcraft 3 and Starcraft were both awesome games. Can't wait for SC2 or a WC4.

Back on topic. I have not bought a video game since WC3. That is how much fun it is.

EDIT: I have played a total of 478 hours in ladder games. Now factor in the other 500 hours in custom games, and I have spent a total of days straight playing that game. Gotta love it.
Days... impressive... I guess....

My current wow main has 35 days on it. My alt has 7. My original main thaat I no longeer have got to 16 days. My second main that I no longer have got to twenty or so.....


Holy ****, i should cut back

Having one unit being crucial to a game that is not relative to Starcraft or Warcraft is not flawed. A comparison between DotA and any other game is whats flawed. DotA is its own game whether it is played on War3 or not, everything else is irrelevant.

Again it is possible to create all of this on SCII but I can't see the devs making it easier for anyone by creating shortcuts in the map editor just because people want to play DotA on SCII. If you want to play DotA go start up War3.
