hooray for subscription to icefrogs blog :P surprised not more people have hopped on this

and i'm surprised a pricing quote wasn't included in the Q&A, although I'm sure he was spammed with that email - even though it's too early to tell.

LOL, I actually checked DotA2.com a while back and one of my questions for the Q&A was, "I've noticed Dota2.com isn't taken, is playdota.com going to be the website for DotA2, or should I register that now?"

in b4 free to play with buyable heroes.

srsly though, this is one of the two games i would call day one purchases in the next year.

the Q&A stuff looks exciting as well, you can see direct jabs at the important questions blizzard short-sightedly did not address like resume support, resolving lag issues(if you live in NZ and play on SEA, you know what I mean), and region lock.

Yeah, seems like every game that I want to play will get released at the same time. Will I play dota2, diablo3 or starcraft 2? Maybe I won't play at all!

from l4d's developer commentary though, we know that valve is one of the best developers when it comes to understanding the importance of suitable graphics in gameplay. Based on this I think we can rest assured that it will have the least 'messy' graphics of all dota clones.

^ HoN's true hook right now is the 'Dream' hero creator. at least that's the way i see it. With these two titans having a throwdown over DotA right now, that's the only thing stopping them being swept away.

No, seriously, fucking awesome! I can't wait till it's released. Though I gotta say, no buyable heroes. It's gay. And also, no "Valve" time please. Give the community a real release date.

Why? In DotA 1 leaving the game ruined the game, but Icefrog just said that in DotA 2 you can either have bots take over, or have other players jump in. Games will most likely always be a full 5v5 from start to finish because of this.

Bots can never mimic actual players, and not everyone wants to fill in for someone that bought stupid items for a hero that left.

Did you forget there is matchmaking? Most likely all players will be at the same level, so they wont be buying stupid items like a new player would.

The most I see being done is tracking how many times a player leaves the game, and that can be seen by everyone. But at what point of the game is it not ok for a player to leave? If the throne is almost dead and there is no way for it to be stopped, can you leave 5 seconds before it dies? Or should that be tracked as being as harsh as a "feeding then leaving" type of leaver?

Q: Will the replay system allow me to move freely backwards and forwards in time rather than having to watch a whole replay? (by Luciando)
A: You’ll be able to jump around to any point in the replay, add bookmarks for easy referencing, view detailed stats and graphs while the game is going, and watch through a specific player’s view (with regards to their camera movement). You’ll also be able to watch replays with friends if you want to review a game or learn from your mistakes. To aid videomakers, the replay system will have flexible camera angle and speed controls. There will also be a bunch of commentating and editing features you can add to your replays.

Then make the Bots a 10x insane player.

Once again, good luck, IF & Valve.
Though keeping things like "...animation cancelling" seems to be strange to me, but then again, it's the thing we currently have, so np.

You can be a 100% sure that it will encourage leaving!

Oh well....

Can't do much about it!

Leavers will always be leavers!

At least this feature is better than the motherfreaking annoying -switch!
