Default Dota 2

It has come to my attention that there are DOTA fans on heresy online. (obviously) however, since i'm not sure you have all heard the news, i give to you DOTA 2:

and some pics for the fans.

yep, and they've got icefrog working on it. Personally i'm excited about it. it'll be nice to still have DOTA and be able to free it from all of the problems the warcraft 3 engine gave it.

of course..........it'll cost money instead of being free.
personally i can live with that. i've benefitted from a fun free game for many years now and i wouldn't mind paying a tiny bit to help compensate for icefrogs hard work.

You should play Heroes of Newerth then, its just DOTA and cost about 20 euros with huge improvements to gameplay and has most of those heroes ported straight or changed.

Lols DOTA2. You've had this with League of Legends, Heroes Of Newearth, and all the custom maps people have made for every RTS with a map editor.

It's a tried and true game style, but I'm waiting to see the price to determine if I get the game or not.

i've seen heroes of newerth played but i have yet to play it myself.
i figure if i'm going to pay for a game, it might as well be Dota 2.

Personally i'm sticking with icefrog made versions because he's a genius and very good at balancing the game.

Icefrog makes games better therefore pay money for Dota 2 and you win.

Meh.

I'll stick with league of legends. Dota is too much "srs business" for my liking.

From iron, cometh strength. From strength, cometh will. From will, cometh faith. From faith, cometh honour. From honour, cometh iron. This is the Unbreakable Litany, and may it forever be so.

Didnt like myself League of Legends much. Heroes of Newerth though like more and would never even touch original Dota anymore. Peoples shouldnt stick with names too much, HON is great if you liked Dota. Of course sequel might be great also. And HON has only cost 20 dollars to buy and new updates few times a month atleast and within 1 year they have already added close to 15 heroes.

If you havent tried HON, suggest you do cause you will then never know wether you liked it or not, just talk about sequel to game without knowing anything about others. Course if you dont like Dota, you wont like HON. Was same back when i played still WOW, one guy said its greatest game he ever played and i asked him what other MMO games has he played. He only replied are there others games like this?

I did try HON and I am not a fan . It's the same reason I don't particularly care for dota; too much srs business. I am about average or slightly above average in these sort of games but IMO, you need to be pretty decent on HON.

My mate fooled me and said "Download HON, it's just like LOL." but it's not.
It's harder and much more unforgiving and just no fun at all for me. Especially with the hate aimed towards me by my supposed "Comrades".

So I stick to LOL. I am not saying it's a better game, just that it's in my comfort zone of something challenging but still fun and (sort of) forgiving.
