"Finally, the ultimate ability R is a far-range incendiary round on a short cooldown that lays down patches of fire that hurt friend and foe. It was on a short cooldown, but if you put too many down, you're going to impede your team as much as the enemy. "

Griefers rejoice!

Not a fan of the cheesy "story" part of it to be honest. The game doesn't look bad, but nothing at all special so I'll be sticking with League of Legends. Plus I'd rather support the smaller guy, Riot, than the Blizzard/Activision behemoth if at all possible.

@(Unverified) Not to mention, wasn't DOTA a fan made mod that got insanely popular and aren't those people the ones that went on to make League of Legends? Blizzard's taking all the credit for it now huh?

Actually, one went to Riot for league of legend, the other one went to Valve for Dota2. The community manager of Dota also went to Riot.

@(Unverified) The guy who initially created Dota (Eul) is working for S2games (HoN). The guy who made Dota Allstars and the popularity went through the rough, Guinsoo, and also the guy who made the dedicated Dota Allstars Forums, Pendragon, are now working for Riot and League of Legends. The guy who is currently updating Dota is Icefrog and is also making Dota 2 with Valve.

I've laughed at WoW so hard today... but this and sc2 heart of the swarm are imo, going to be pretty good.

Looking forward to playinth this alongside Wrath of Heroes & SWTOR.

What an odd selection of heroes. No Thrall or Diablo?

This was funny. FUNNY. Blizz do funny. But with serious combat.

Blizzard didn't create DOTA... That would be the modding community, right?

And as far as I know Blizzard hasn't been too kind to those guys considering Diablo 3 and the like.

True Blizzard had nothing to do with what became DOTA. It started as a map for Warcraft 3 based on a map from Starcraft ;)

"Warfield has some pretty fun abilities. His Q ability puts him into an immobile siege mode, increasing his range and damage dealt at the expense of movement"

Sounds like Xerath from LoL :P

So there is Blizzard DOTA and Dota 2 from Valve? And none of the companies have said anything so far? I'll be surprised if this ends well.

So reading this article leads me to believe this will be a LoL rip off with blizzard licenced graphics....wonderful!
/sarcasm.

Mind you I lvoed blizzards games for almost 15 years, but lately..i dunno they just seems to be %100 focused on the cash grabs instead of delivering the FUN they used to embed into the core of every product they created.

What the hell is a Dota? And how does this relate to MMO's?

...and oh:

@Utakata

...so it means Defence of the Ancients?

But how does that relate to StarCraft II, since they are entirley two different games?
