    Default Blizzard joins the Dota genre wars

    source: Blizzard Dota



    The very much so popular 5on5 game hailing from the Aeon of Strife and early DotA stages in WarCraft 3 have had numerous of clones. With every gaming company hoping to land the massive crowd for the Dota genre, Blizzard themselves have entered the fray as Blizzard are soon ready to roll out their custom map "Blizzard DOTA".
    Awesome! Lots of games in the Dota genre this year.

    Let me quote some comments..

    Don't understand why they're doing this now when they could have done this ages ago =.= when there was no competition.
    The thing is the community where dota emerged from never supported the CREATOR of the DotA custom map for WC3 TFT. It's his trademark actually not Blizzard's nor Valve's. It's his decision not Blizzards. And he decided to sell the map and idea to Valve not the I-love-money community aka Blizzard.
    DOTA through SC2 engine is plain stupid idea. I mean if the feel of the game is changed then there game itself has changed and majority dota players won't even bother to try it

    The same stands for DOTA 2 as well. Valve guys must keep the same feel of the game. Otherwise this WC3 dota will remain the most played DOTA map.
    Blizzard trying to milk yet another cow.
    Well, they can go to hell as far as I'm concerned; they used to be a company that had an oldschool spirit in the old day, but I guess WoW's model made them businessmen-like rather than game developers with a strong ethic they used to have.

    I well know they're not going to make money off it.. ( well, let's forget revenues that will eventually be made even though it's free ) It doesn't change the fact that they're trying to rip-off a custom map to which they didn't give any proper support, claiming it as somehow "their own".
    It's funny how they suddenly realise how cool and awesome a DotA map would be, when Valve announces Dota 2 - while they didn't really do a thing when the other clones popped out.

    They just want to have something to present in front of Valve. Players will have an alternative on SC2 engine - which doesn't really fit, but that's not an issue - and sure, that's always good to take. Any opportunity to widen the DotA offspring is always somehow positive.
    But the spirit behind this "Blizzard DotA" still is foul. If they were just offering the map like that, and not trying to "sell it" with such a rethoric, then it'd be just fine to me. But nobody will have me trust that Blizzard still has the good spirit it used to have years before.
    If they really liked DotA as a whole, they'd have supported the map since a long time.

    Hope you got my point, no hard feelings
    ha ha ha.. wowFail!
