DotA 2 is the sequel to the revolutionary Defense of The Ancients, mod created with Warcraft III. Valve took the development duties – and even entered a dispute with Blizzard for the name rights – and with the help of the original developer (IceFrog), created a free-to-play MOBA game that should finally give some real competition to the acclaimed League of Legends.
As is widely known, in multiplayer action arena games such as Dota 2, players control a hero that is assisted by a number of other units, with the task of destroying the enemy bases. Progress is rewarded with experience and new equipment and gameplay is more tactical than a novice might expect when first discovering the game.
