Default Dota 2 Hero names...


Are they gonna take the Title or the Name of the heroes?

In the artwork released, we saw;

BloodSeeker - Title
Lina - Name
Drow Ranger - Title
Morphling - Name/Title

I honestly would prefer all the heroes either given their Titles or names instead of mixed.

2 titles vs 1 name (not counting morph)
Maybe they will have small name changes. but only heroes such as Anub`arak or shit.

They will take the one that stands out the most.

Cause if you saw a hero called Aiushta, you would go WTF who is that just to realize it was in fact Enchantress.

Imo it would be very bad if you mix the two... Just keep it to Titles, or change it to other names if they sound akward.

But i'd still go for the Titles.

I want to see only the name that most people call the hero. No mixups.
Lina, Zeus, Axe, Beastmaster, Dark Seer, Witch Doctor, Night Stalker, Lycan (no fkn ...-thrope or Banehallow), Panda (not ..brewmaster, not Mangix) a.s.o.

I have bad news for you. Like 1/3 of heroes will get new names, and their design will be changed a lot. I mean, bareheaded Lina is merely a setback, you will see that trolls won't probably be trolls anymore (I'm not even sure about TW), pandas won't probably be pandas, there will be no Frozen Throne anymore, and World Tree's name itself makes me feel that tribal theme that displeased some of you will possibly be dominant.

Etc.
I believe it will be this way.

Don't worry, there will be none of Mangix, Banehallows etc. By the way, since when Balanar became Night Stalker? I mean, I've never heard anyone called Balanar in some other way in his speech, except short form (NS).

I wonder what they gonna do about heroes whose names will be definitely copyrighted by Blizzard (Kel'Thuzad the Lich, for example)

Who cares. All these 'Dota 2' threads are useless and just make the wait seem longer.
