I’m not sure if you’re trolling or not, but “the real DotA” is only DotA. Okay, there’s many versions of DotA for Warcraft III, still every single one of them is a “true” DotA to some extent. Let me show you some examples of what I’m meaning. Do you want the original Defense of The Ancients? Play Eul’s DotA on RoC. Do you want the official sequel? Play Thirst for Gamma. Do you want the map most played by the community? Play DotA Allstars on TFT. Do you want a standalone version of that map endorsed by Eul (Kyle Sommer) himself ? Play Dota 2. Do you prefer the older versions of DotA maps released for Warcraft III? Play those. Almost every old map would work on WC3 Reforged, or would work with minimal changes, Blizzard said.
You know, all mobas originated from Warcraft 3 Dota but this is DOTA+++++
Dota 2 too has many improvements over DotA. And if you want different, faster games, there’s League of Legends or Heroes of the Storm. And Smite if you want even a different point of view of the battle.
And it got f*cked because bad management company. HoN was THE moba in 2012/2013/2014 until Dota2 came.
Sadly, that’s utterly false. League of Legends, released in 2009, in 2012 was already the most played game in the genre by far. Also, in 2012 was pretty simple to get access to the Dota 2 beta and a lot of people already played it. In mid 2013 it was released and according to Steam stats it was already the second most played MOBA/ARTT in the World at that time.
But Dota2 is nowhere near quality of HoNs unique avatars/gameplay/competition.
That’s your own opinion.
Its just the REAL Dota.
There’s no “imaginary” DotA either.
I think Blizzard should buy copyrights,
No need for that: they already owns all the copyrights for the «real» DotA characters (more like: the Warcraft characters, because last time I checked DotA was based on them).
they can knock out Dota2.
Like they did with HotS? Also, the one to knock out is the most played game in the genre: League of Legends. Dota 2 is “just” in the second place.
Just it needs to be balanced,
Right! Something easy to do to begin with, and that Blizzard has been able to do for every single one game of their own except Brood War (oops, it’s more likely the contrary!).
the ranking balance is joke now with unlimited accounts, endless cycles of stat abusers and bad management made this game like “dead”
HoN became “dead” the very moment it was put up for sale when instead League of Legends was free to play. See what happened to Fortnite and PUBG.
Now it isnt just me, but dota2 and lol look like a bad joke compared to HoN xd
The bad joke is a videogame that started as a standalone version of DotA but that was then dumped by IceFrog. I hope that Garena/Frostburn Studios are managing better Heroes of Newerth than S2 did. Said by a guy that enjoyed a lot Strife before they abandoned it.
