One of the most popular online games today is without a doubt, Defense of the Ancients 2 or DotA 2. This game is taking the world by storm and is not showing any signs of slowing down. A lot of entertainment news has talked a lot about this game for the past 5 years. In this article, we will be talking more about this amazing game and why it is getting so much attention.
DotA 2 is a diverse strategy game that is a mod of the ever popular Warcraft 3. The objective of DotA 2 is to beat the enemy team by destroying their Ancient while protecting your own. The game is usually played by 10 players (5 for each team).
You start the game by picking your main hero. The three main categories of DotA 2 heroes are the following: intelligence heroes, strength heroes, and agility heroes. As the game progresses, you will be earning experience and gold and you will use these to upgrade your hero.
DotA 2 is very similar to chess, the better your opponent is, the more competitive and difficult the game becomes. This is the reason why a lot of tournaments from all over the globe have been made.
Here’s a trivia: did you know that majority of DotA 2 players are Asians? Thailand and the Philippines are two of the most popular countries in Asia where players love to play DotA 2. This game is also very popular in Sweden and other Northern European nations. Since DotA 2 did not make a lot of noise in North America, a lot of teams disbanded and very few tournaments were held in this country.
The map of DotA 2 is a very big reason why this game is very successful until today. The creator of this map is Steve Freak but he later on passed the torch to Ice Frog (game developer). Even if this is the case, he is a big reason why DotA is very successful until today.
A lot of updates are still being made despite the fact that DotA 2 has no official support. If you are wondering how this is possible, it is because dedicated users/ players from all over the globe post their opinions and suggestions regarding hero and item changes.
I think every gamer will agree with me when I say that Defense of the Ancients is one if not the most popular topic in gaming news today. This game is definitely one of the best games out there and if you have yet to try it, you are missing out on a lot of fun.
