About the Game

Dota began as a user-made modification for Warcraft 3 and has grown into one of the most played online games in the world. Following in the tradition of Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, Team Fortress, Portal, and Alien Swarm, Dota 2 is the result of Valve hiring the community developers who built the mod and giving them the chance to finally build a full product out of their idea with the help of a professional team of developers and artists at Valve.

As for the gameplay, it’s a little hard to describe. The camera is set in the traditional RTS perspective, but it wouldn’t be fair to call Dota an RTS. And while each hero starts at level 1, and many times hits the level cap of 25, it wouldn’t be fair to call it an RPG.

DotA 2 is a session-based online multiplayer game. Each player controls a player character called a "hero", who is given the responsibility of participating in team combat. The primary objective of each match is for a team to destroy the opposing team's fortified stronghold. This generally takes place along a series of lanes, that connect their opposing bases, lined with defensive towers.


I assume that player who used to play Dota (Defense of the Ancient) would be familiar with the idea of the game therefore I will not need to elaborate much futher on its gameplay.
