Oh God. My friends and I play this every time we go to a net Cafe.

The fact that the map has been remade by VALVE (possibly the greatest gaming company to have ever existed) can only mean wondrous and spectacular things.

Guess I'm gonna be the first to preorder it, then...

No episode 3 then, never even heard of DOTA until valve bought it or whatever.
Same here.
The first time I heard about it was when that guy named Icefrog went to Valve.
This might be the first Valve game I'll never buy because I'm not interested in it at all. The only thing I want to hear from Valve now is ep3 and a bit Portal2.

I could've sworn there was some other game they were supposed to be working on... nah, must've gotten something mixed up, that's all...

So, I guess the only Valve game we're getting this millennium is Portal 2. Oh well, as long as they keep the free shit coming :D

Looking forward to more fancy hats (that I will never get, but still appreciate the possibility of getting, because they are free).

I, for one, am glad to see Valve trying something new with a different IP, and not just another first-person shooter (Portal still counts, even if you only shoot portals).
Of course, I'm still waiting for Ep3, though it will be about 3 years next month since Ep2... at this point they need to announce HL3 or something to make up for the wait.

Okay, I guess I'll have to be the one that asks the question. What do they mean by "another" ? What other game have they made that started as a mod?

I refuse to play Portal until Valve confirms they won't pull a DNF manouvre on Portal 3. I have no idea if the story stretches over more Portal games, but I'll play it safe this time.

I played WC3 a lot in my day and I never really saw what the big attraction to DOTA was.

retain "functional aspects to the art that are pretty significant to the players," Valve's DotA 2 project lead told Game Informer. The aim is to make every hero's visual style and animations unique enough to they can be identified immediately.
A design choice which will undoubtedly work fantastically [HEADING=1]UNTIL YOU RUIN IT 2 AND A HALF YEARS LATER WITH ALL SORTS OF POINTLESS JUNK AND MEANINGLESS SHITTY VISUAL "COSMETICS" CONTRARY TO YOUR ENTIRE GAME DESIGN PHILOSOPHY JUST FOR THE SAKE OF ADDING SHIT. LIKE, SAY, HATS.[/HEADING]

...Yeah, I still love Valve, but I just wish they'd stop ruining one of my favorite games for absolutely no reason but to appeal to the mouth-breathing crowd...

Day of defeat source and i think even counter strike source.

I think I'll just leave these here....



OT: I would have rather had Episode 3. We'll get it eventually though, I mean if Duke is coming then Freeman will eventually catch up.

Whatever, just wash your hands.
Im unconvinced by this, I mean I already play league of legends and its free, I have to wonder what dota 2 (so weird to make a sequel to a mod) could offer that lol couldnt

Is it bad that the only reason I knew what DotA was before seeing this is that annoying Basshunter song?

^ Nope, not at all, the only things that will annoy you are the people that just cry all game/blame/and shittalk nonstop and theres plenty of them lol

Well for one, dota is not "free", you have to buy WC3 to play it....

Its pretty fun and should be interesting. Its all about teamwork bro and icefrog is da man

P.S. LoL/HoN blow...
