Default IceFrog considering LoD mode in DotA 2


Forgot to post this a while back. This is from my PM.

LoD is the current version which basically allows you to pick the skills your hero gets as well as your hero. The ways in which this happen are dependent on the mode chosen with the most common mode being -sdso. This causes some taverns to have 1-3 hero icons in them from which you choose potential skills and then ultimately choose 1 of those heroes to be the one which the skills go on. So just asking.

It is something we are considering yes
So, that makes me happy that at least there's a chance for some all passive goodness.

Good thing IF's working hard to try and cater to as much of the community as possible. It's only an optional mode, but I guess it'll make some people happy.

He is clearly referring to Lord of Destruction, the famous add-on of Diablo2.

I did. Not OMG nor LoD meant anything Dota related to me. So yes it was actually confusing.

Q: Will there be anything like the AI maps in DotA or a “training mode” with difficulty levels? (by L.Pham)
A: Yes there will be bot support if you just want to play by yourself, or you can create a party of friends and fill the rest of the slots with bots. There are a variety of different settings you can use in order to configure the bots, ranging from selectable difficulty levels to specific behaviors that you want to practice against. For example, if you want to practice your lane control, you could configure the bots to be stronger at denying, last hitting, and harassing. We’ll also have some specially crafted challenge scenarios, similar to things like Pudge Wars, which I’ll elaborate on in the future.
From dota 2 Q&A

Icefrog will create different variation of the game...

Edit: also I kinda want a deathmatch scenario were everything were neutral creeps and heroes spawn at random point and lvl up and gain gold faster..
and such types of scenario like SF wars.. or even KAEL WARS

I think Ice should implement those Dota related custom maps like:
a.[Hero]Pudge,Mirana,Nevermore,etc Wars
b.OMG/LOD
c.Imba
d.etc

Since those are reducing the retiring to play Dota now.

Hmm, I just wanted to show proof I wasn't lying. Fixed by a mod so it's ok now I guess.

I wonder if IceFrog will change the soundsets on heroes in DotA 2. He's no longer being limited to using what is there. I call dibs on James Woods doing voice acting for Clinkz.

Of course he will. Duke Nukem voice actor has already been hired by Valve to do voice overs for DotA 2

BTW, what do letters LoD stand for? I mean, I know what is this game/map aka "OMGDotA", but still?

I play only LoD DotA nowadays.. but with all matchmaking scores and all, and people wanting to get better/look good, I wonder if anyone would ever play the LoD mode under the DotA 2 platform. Unless those games'd have their own seperate scores too.

One thing thats bugging me is the amount of bugs&uncodability issues in the current LoD DotA. So in DotA 2 LoD you could pick meepo ulti+3 other skills. Now that would be fun.

Yeah, to the poster above, I suppose that's possible, but this thread was hidden last night and now visible again so it's probably safe to assume that on at least some level this is confirmed.
