Default Background Music


I'm used to the warcraftish background music, frankly speaking Blizzard did a good job in the sound system. How many of you will miss warcraft's background music once you've transitioned to DOTA 2?

I'll miss Power of the Horde (-music special). There aren't that many gaming company's staff that can rock. Valve hired Warcraft III's former composer though so I think most of the sound will feel similarly epic like the main menu music.

There's not much music in DotA2 yet, but I think it's not going to be bad.

Currently main meny theme is pretty generic, but ok, I think. Picking phase music is pretty short, but I really like it

Ok, let's see how things will be played out

Didn't they say that some of the composers from the original war3 worked on Dota2's music?

Edit: yep Jason Hayes works on Dota2's music.

I actually have the Warcraft soundtrack CDs, and they are awesome to listen to as ambient type music. Very calm and relaxing.

Actually I've always hated wc3 soundtrack. IMO dota 2 soundtrack is 10000x better.

The song dota2_music_battle_002 always give me shivers.

Maybe, maybe not. Some of the best MMORPGs have hundreds of tracks... And believe me when I say it will make the experience for each hero even more unique. The music connects the player to the hero.

Yeah, still. Blizzard makes good and by far, best background music for games like Dota and Wow. Going to miss every single BG music they had in Dota. Unless.. If possible.. Valve inserts some of Blizzard's BGM into Dota 2.

I'd imagine AA's theme to be chilly and cold, Spectre's ghastly, Axe's orcish, Chen's holy, Sven's brave, Doom's dark, Pudge's disgusting... Something like that. Oh and Storm's electric.

Well in that case I suggest Valve to ask their buddies over at Bethesda Softworks a favor and let them use this as Dragon Knight's theme:

Any Megaman/Rockman fans here? If you count the theme music for all the Mavericks in the whole series I think there's enough to cover all dota heroes.

i just love the this song, it plays during the first few minutes of the match, and IMO helps to rise the tension levels before the match starts, you know, that uncertainty feel, not knowing who's gonna win the match at the end, if you are gonna get first blood or not

Except their lead-composer, Jason Hayes, left them. He now works for VALVe. On Dota 2.

Also, my favorite track is this one, I think.
