Default WoW and Dota 2


Every since i played Dota 2 and I see Valve's model of Omniknight:



I keep comparing it to blizzard's paladin:





I can't stop seeing WoW or WC3 with a new skin... like if Valve bought WoW and WC3 from Blizzard and change all the models...

...Do you think it would be interesting if Valve designed WoW instead? ...lol....

I think it would be interesting if you stopped making Omniknight threads.

Valve wants nothing to do with that sinking ship

Dota 2 can't make as much money as WoW because Blizzard has perfected the art of money sucking.

WoW still makes more money then any other game ever so it's not exactly sinking. Even during cata when it was in it's worst state it made more money then any other game.

Omni doesn't feel right to me. It's not that I want blizz palading to replace him, it's that just he sounds, looks and is animated like a creep, just boring.

OT: Nvm that Omni uses Blizz paladin model in DotA1 and was modeled to be recognizeable in DotA2. It should go without saying that those guys are somewhat recognizeable in WoW aswell.

This thread reminds me of an old concept of posting rights and thread creation rights being separate...
Nope, I'm totally not implying anything

In this case, denying access to the internet is probably the only true solution

It means that the discussion which went on here http://www.playdota.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1281197 had some valid points, mostly by drfrank.

He's saying that perhaps certain users should be refrained from creating threads, while still retaining their ability to post in others' threads

Yeah, I hope those users should get the message and stop making thread. No body needs bad threads around... it's like poluting the system.

"Famous" is not the word I'd use

you gotta give Blizzard credit, they have done a good job of making WoW showing up in every possible top 10 game list for a while (not f2p, that is).

It just got outclassed this 2 years or so by a lot of others in several aspects.

Just because wow is at 9.2m subs doesn't mean it's "dying", it just getting old. Many old MMO's are still around today, and I would imagine wow will stick around for at least another 5-10 years. 9.2m subs is still more than any subscriber based MMO RPG out there, and likely higher than even f2p MMO RPG's, tho I don't know for sure. Also at new expansion releases everyone flocks back and WoW's subscriber base goes back up by a few million, Pandaria being a recent example of this.

Also Dota2 is f2p and completely feature complete because valve wants to attract more people onto steam to make bank (I.E they make most of their profit from more people using steam, rather than off of dota2 specifically). If valve wanted dota2 to make high profit on it's own they would've likely made it B2P or at least a more "aggressive" f2p model ala lol.

It's extremely likely your account got hacked, and then was used to spam tradechat to advertise gold selling websites. It happened to my friend as well who didn't play the game for like 6 months. It's pretty easy to get it unbanned just phone up blizzard customer support. They actually have great customer support compared with what I've experienced with other huge gaming companies, was always really easy to get my accounts unlocked, or to take off an authenticator after I lost it etc.
