Default DotA 2 Releases in 2013


This seals it, I think?

http://www.joystiq.com/2012/05/11/bl...ota-is-now-bl/

''DOTA 2 is due out next year.''

What do you think? Are you disappointed?

Of course it will... who cares? I can play it.

There are 33 heroes left, that means more than 7 months at a rate of 1 hero per week (very optimistic)...

The server capacity isn't high enough to support all the players, for example.

they can solve this problem for a week.its not a big deal.Valve just want to increase the interest,but the only thing they do with this pushing time is losing fans and desire to wait this game.Leauge of Legends for example did exact the opposite thing.they released the game and now they fixing,working on the servers and they doing everything right and every day there is more ex-dota players move to LoL and here lies the problem!

DotA players aren't switching to LoL, except the really bad, immature players. Most still play DotA 1.

Secondly, creating servers to different countries takes more than a week.

There are obviously more reasons to keep it as closed beta. It's Valve, they totally know what they're doing here.

I dissagree,even the top players like NS or LaCoste playing LoL.But the fact is that LoL more Popular the Dota 2 And Valve have the members of comapny around the world along time ago.its just a business tricks or some other crap that i still cant get.I dont see any good reason to NOT release it

I posted that link before. Also, if you count on it, it makes sense, one new hero every 2 weeks and 33 heroes missing = approximately 66 weeks til it's released.

Also of course, you can't trust that site 100%.

They're probably keeping it closed for server load. Only releasing keys as they can cater for more and more players. Or there is some intrinsic intricate marketing scheme that I wouldn't understand

More popular based on what? Accounts created? That's a good base for popularity.

I'm sorry, which part of that "Seals" it ?
It wasn't said by Gabe , it was just stated by Joystiq .
This very same thing can be found at Gamespot

http://asia.gamespot.com/news/second...to-pax-6376254

"Dota 2 is scheduled for PC and Mac release this year."
And under the image
"Expect DOTA 2 to leave beta early next year."

Why these websites wanna make assumptions is their business but let's not CONFIRM, its true unless stated by an official.

It doesn't matter what people think, it doesn't matter how calculative you can be, all we know is the officials are aiming for release around the end of this year, that's all we can really take now.

Top players mean nothing. What means is the regular mass that consist most of the playerbase.

They want to release the game to the public at it's finest, which will result in huge amounts of new players.

You are making assumptions on how Valve is running things and you are also making assumptions about how people are gonna treat Dota 2 and its popularity levels. Let's not shall , we? Unless you've ran a successful gaming company that's only released highly regarded game.

Is dota 2 released yet? Do you have hard evidence on these statements? Let's not talk too much out of our ass.

Whatever reasons they might have, I'm sure they're valid. Valve aren't idiots, buddy, they've been doing greatly, just leave it to them, I'm sure they'll do the Dota world justice. Plus in the end, they're gonna reset everyone's accounts, so it makes no difference, everyone's gonna get a fresh start, so those who don't have it now, can just practice on regular dota until it opens up.

Give me a link where Lacoste and Ns play Lol
and
you really want them to release the game now with many bugs , not enough servers , no way to get money and not polished ? I just think you're mad because you didn't get a BETA KEY ( and they're invredible easy to get )

Also think that if they take their time to make the game better, this can only be a good thing.

Seven months is a long time to polish everything.

Making it ten is enough to perfect the game in it's current version(6.74c imported to DotA 2), along with some UI fixes on the way.
