Blizzard DotA

Discussion in Gaming started by Peter, Oct 27, 2011

    Serious discussion. What do you [those who play action RTS] think about this? What about those who love anything about the Starcraft/Warcraft lore? I find it pretty amazing. I always wondered what it would be like to have Zeratul fight against Thrall.

    So I ask you to discuss and remain on topic about it.

    They are kidding right?

    Not kidding. I think it's pretty legit. Depending on the pricing on release, I'll take a look at it.

    Can't they get sued for using DOTA like how notch used SCROLLS in his game?

    Sorry if that's random, but that's a question that I cannot answer. :frown:

    Honestly Peter, while the warcraft lore has always interested me, the starcraft hasn't, Imma star wars/ warhammer fanatic when it comes to sci-fi... ANYWAYS, from an rts aspect the warcraft series has been amazing, but with the let down (to me) of starcraft 2 i would not suspect much from a warcraft 4.
    BUT WITH DOTA, hated DotA on warcraft 3 because of the people. Bunch of faggot assholes who bitched if you didn't know what you were doing because THEY wouldn't let you stay in the game, i got kicked constantly by everything... AND I STILL DON'T THINK THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO KICK FROM WC3 GAMES!!...
    Anyways, this looks more of the same, the same faggots will inhabit this and the same faggots will cause me to hate DotA...

    more of the same stupid shit...

    Looks pretty cool.
    The graphics seem pretty fancy shmancy.

    Well, DotA is based of a SC map so it's kinda gray area. Valve bought the rights for them to make Dota2 but I would believe Blizzard to still have some ownership of the name.

    Thanks Josh.

    Unless this game is very cheap I would be strongly against it being a stand-alone game since I'm willing to bet it can be made in SC2 customs right now.

    What fuck am I reading.

    Blizzard Entertainment is also developing a free mod for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm entitled Blizzard DOTA.

    AoS was a SC map that DotA was based off, so he's almost right.

    Oh so this is a SC2 custom game then? I missed that bit.

    Looks like another regurgitation of WC/SC to me.

    It is SC. :razz:

    I thought it was a joke when I saw the trailer yesterday... They had the chance to make DOTA2 and passed on it, so it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to make this legit unless they realized they made a mistake which is perfectly viable.

    I wish it were playable with wings of liberty because I'm not sure I'll be getting heart of the swarm right away.

    I wouldn't hold my breath, I'd imagine this will be a selling point to some extent. I will most certainly be jumping right onto SC2-2 though, I absolutely loved the story in 1 and 2 so far.
