Sounds legit.

You play warcraft, then you defend some kind of ancient.

Why not? If it makes the game more enjoyable, there's nothing wrong with it...

If it's a popular mod, why not add it? Got a problem with that?

Nope. It's just fun to see Blizzard FINALLY taking note of Dota after all these years.

Your point?

I'm not sure what you're trying to say to be honest.

Is it because Icefrog and Blizzard?

DotA has been a popular custom map for Warcraft 3 for over half a decade yet Blizzard never made a stand-alone / hired IceFrog / created a Dota map.

They only made a move when Valve announced Dota 2.

It's long overdue.

Overcompensating by adding Dota modes in 3 separate Blizzard titles.

Which game did Blizzard release after Wc3 FT? WoW only (bash it all you want, it's the most successful game ever... from a business point of view). Their next game (other than WoW) was Sc2. They had the intention of making a custom map ala DotA. You could blame them for taking forever to make a game...

Beside, Blizzard was already supporting DotA in its own way. They released a few patches to help DotA out... as well as increasing map size. When the custom maps were dangerous (virus), DotA had access to information and had time to modify&fix the map (correct me if I'm wrong on that point). Blizzard never attempted to obstruct Icefrog's efforts.

Dota2Panda is right, Blizzard is too slow and they took an eternity to do this. I can't wait to try that out along with HotS!

Actually, there is a community-created mod of WoW which represents DotA (with existing characters).



Well, it was matter of time for Blizzard to import the idea. As you know, it's the thing they do best

Wow, nice, someone should tell him that WoW textures, skins, etc. cannot be extracted and used for other stuff.

I mean, I was surprised why the grahics of the map looks too good, and I realized it's because he just extracted I think Arathi Basin's map texture.

If you thought that that was in Warcraft III man you are so dumb.

Its a modified World of Warcraft client with different models and stuff. The UI of the Warcraft III was just pasted into the video.

Theres no need to hire Icefrog if they're aiming for a lot of changes and totally overhauling the content/mechanics. They notice icefrog may not develop DotA anymore so they want to continue the legacy or atleast give someone a platform to become the next euls.

Uh, I already said it's possible?

It's okay for me to be dumb not knowing that it's just a modded WoW game, at least I know extracting everything from WoW and putting it on WCIII is possible.

What's with your newfaggish assumptions, go gather information before you write such shit. W3 UI wasn't "pasted" into the Video. Man you are so dumb.

LoL , HoN , blizzard dota and a pile of rip-offs do you think ice let them make these games without any profit ? He could sue every single one of them. I dont think the fashion of MOBAS is taking place when ice doesnt give a fuck.

1) IF can't sue anyone for one can't copyright a vague idea, just specific realisation of it. Otherwise every FPS creator would've been owed idSoftware money, for example. Blizzard can't demand anything either, because by the time WC3 was out, there was no license clause about "any map, mod etc is owned by Blizzard" (it exists in SC2, tyty IF).

2) IF wasn't even the one who developed an idea of DotA. He just taken over the project started by Eul. But even Eul just copypasted Aeon of Strife. And if it's not about idea, but about name "DotA", it's Eul's / Guinsoo's / IceFrog's problem that they haven't registered the name before it was too late.

3) DOTA was always used as a name for a genre before those "MOBA", and "action-rts" abominations were invented (those names don't even represent game process properly lol). It's ok that people started to refer to this style as "DOTA". Much more honest, plus free advertisement of original product, problem?

P.S. What the FUCK with you, community? Why so many such aggressive IF fanboys these days? Are you afraid of variety or what? If no, why the hell my noradrenaline-o-meter going off-scale?

Go away with your "moba" term that was pulled by some Riot smartass from his arse. Bonus points if you slam your head against the wall thrice in the process.

On topic: noone, including IF, posess exclusive rights on anything DotA-related. End of story.
