Valve has a hand in it.

nuff said.
Noobs obviously value quantity over quality.

(Having 100+ heroes in a game where only 10 are picked in one game is dumb, especially considering how more than half of them are never picked competitively.)

Well if half of them are picked competitively, that means a game with 100 heroes has 50ish (depending on how many less than half are used) competitive heroes. That ends up giving quite a high number of different possible teams. I always enjoyed all random games as well, more heroes is nice for that.

Im just saying that people won't buy a whole new game just for a few new heroes. (HoN already has at ~60 DotA heroes) S2 doesn't chug out heroes as quickly as Icefrog, but they are a lot more well rounded and viable. DotA2 will probably be a perfectly fine game, I just don't see it stealing people away from HoN which is essentially the same game.

I Google image searched DotA and got pictures like this:



I Google image searched HoN and got pictures of naked men (I'm totally serious, try it yourself).

My point? Branding and popularity. DotA 2 will be more successful than HoN based on that alone. All my friends have heard of DotA and have a general idea of what it is. Most haven't heard of HoN. On top of that, expect some real marketing pushes for DotA 2 from Valve upon release. Valve has twice the resources than S2 has. The only thing that might ruin DotA 2 is Icefrog.

I don't understand why he (icefrog) continued to produce this when there are already 2 other games that came out SOOOO much sooner.
Seriously. I actually liked HoN, but in my opinion it was balanced very well. I used to take quite i few baths with nighthound back in the day.

Double post.

Who hasn't heard of HoN? They should get punched in the tit.

looks like this game is almost ready, there will be a DOTA 2 tournament in a couple weeks for the first public showing

http://blog.dota2.com/2011/08/announ...international/

Quote:
Dota 2 Championships: First Public Showing at Gamescom

Valve today announced The International. This tournament will be the first time Dota 2 is shown in public, and will take place August 17th -21st at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

The International features the 16 best Dota teams in the world competing in the Dota 2 Championships through a group stage, double elimination playoff format over the course of Cologne’s five-day trade show.

The tournament will be broadcast in four languages (Chinese, German, Russian, and English) free of charge. The winning team will receive $1 million.

“The International is the first public Dota 2 event and will give the tens of millions of gamers playing Dota around the world their first look at the new game,” said Gabe Newell, president and founder of Valve. “I have had the good fortune to watch the competitors as they prepare for the tournament, and the level of play is extraordinary.”

In addition to the cash prizes awarded by Valve, NVidia is providing all the hardware for the event.

Dota 2 will be available for the PC and Mac later this year.

disturbed, the argument that people wont switch from HoN to dota2 is kind of silly.. even when HoN was still in beta players were wishing they could just be playing the original :/. dota2 is going to blow up simply for the fact that its dota, and its almost garunteed going to have better support. if you are even barely part of the HoN community, you know S2 is a pretty immature, and mishandled company..

tl;dr, dota2 will kill hon because of the name and nostalgic factor, while being backed by a company called valve.

s2 does a decent job with support, people are retarded. the fact that dota 2 has infinitely more money behind it it why it will be better. s2 is only an immature company if you suck *** and want someone to blame. mishandled is another story, they are to small to run something that big (still do a better job then runic IMO)

First of all, that doesnt make sense. the original dota still exists and people could play it over HoN all they wanted.

Secondly, this is an old thread an i made those posts before HoN became ****. Dota2 and HoN are both shiny versions of the original. There was no reason to switch before but now that they copied LoL's stupid "Free" to play model(which makes them more money) I can support moving to DotA2.
