Blizzard DotA for StarCraft 2 Announced - BlizzCon

Blizzard Dota
After having so many DotA Genre games like League of Legends, Heroes Of Newerth and Valve's DotA 2. The PC games giant Blizzard has announced 4 new maps for StarCraft 2 on the opening day of BlizzCon 2010. Surprisingly, Blizzard's DotA was one of it. Blizzard developers said that StarCraft 2 DotA will be based on Warcraft 3 DotA by IceFrog. All the heroes, items, farming even the whole gameplay style will be implemented in the upcoming Blizzard's DotA.

Blizzard DotA StarCraft2
Blizzard DotA:
Wage war with the most powerful heroes from Blizzard Entertainment’s game universes in this explosive new multiplayer game.

Blizzard's greatest heroes have been drawn from their respective universes to do battle on a chess-themed battleground. You control a hero and must level up, buy items, and work together with your teammates to defeat waves of units and ultimately destroy the opposing team's King Tower.


Blizzard DotA map for StarCraft 2 will be released in near future via Battle.net. It will be free for everyone who owns a copy of StarCraft 2. Till now, We can predict that Blizzard's DotA is more likely to be a sci-fi oriented DotA. Blizzard is updating StarCraft 2 engine, map editor and continuously adding features so it can support the Blizzard DotA.

Blizzard is making a huge mistake porting DOTA to StarCraft 2, it belongs to Warcraft 3 and it should remain there. if Blizzard DotA comes it'll kill the point of playing Starcraft 2.

i really dont care if it's free or paid.. blizzard is just killing the dota by putting it into a sci-fi strategy genre

Why i don't like StarCraft 2's DotA...
1. StarCraft 2's icon too bad...
2. I think the spell pack not good against original DotA...
3. DotA heroes can fight with Machine??
So better play Valve DotA 2...

Kennerds Wayne said...

1st...
I don't think ancient heroes can fight with machine ~
2nd...
I don't think starcraft 2 can make the spell as good like original warcraft 3's dota...

if using starcraft 2 play dota should us pay cd-key's money?? Ofcouse we need play free games...

1. Not liking SC2(The RTS type game) doesn't necessarily mean you'll hate BlizzDotA just because it's on SC2, since the gameplay is different, basically. As with WC3 and DotA.
2. Ancients. They exist whether futuristic or not dumbasses. They don't mean medieval themes or barbaric people or whatever man. THINK. (Xel Naga anyone?)
3. ICONS? LIKE @#@$#@% DUDE. ICONS CAN BE MODIFIED. LIKE IN WC3 DUMBASS. (YEAH THAT's YOU KENNERDS WAYNE. STFU)
However:
4. Well yeah, copying DotA is kinda cheap and all. And I do agree it sucks cause SC2 doesn't have LAN capabilities(Though hacks provide the way lol)
5. This could be good, in a way. Paves a way for Sci-fi fans to get in to this whole Hero oriented games.
6. DotA 2 will probably be better still though.

Also,
Which was made with DOTA in mind from early developing on?
Which will feature love to details like custom voice-work?
Which will have the superior matchmaking-system? (looking at you bnet 2.0)
Which will have the better community-integration?
And most importantly: Which will have the better support?

@Akhil above, yea, i am totally agree with you. everyone will like, some goes to Starcraft's DotA, some DotA2, some remain in Warcraft Dota, everyone will be divided. Sad, the large DotA community will become smaller and smaller..

Perhaps later on in the future, private server will be released, just like now we have private server of HoN... sooner or later, private server of DotA2 or Dota Blizzard will be up.. and the community will get even smaller by then..

Sigh, these bastards are really trying to bring down DotA2 while earning their fucking income.

Sorry guys but your all pretty dumb.... W3 will still have dota like it always has and sc2, valve, riotgames, s2 games are just copying what icefrog has implemented on w3. It is an "option" to play "dota" on any game format that you have. They are not saying buy every single copy. just play dota on ur prefered gaming platform bc u can bc its an extra option on ur game that u love to play already.

all i'm saying... dota 2 is far more better for DOTA players, because there are just small changes that occcured, but for the people who really likes challenge and more complicated tactics and strategies to play, they can play blizzard dota. All i say, it's no competition, and if it's a competition, it's anybody's game.

I don't think that Blizzard DotA will reach competitive scene. Probably, it will be a huge fail because Valve Software's DotA 2 will be dominating in that area. Also, StarCraft 2 does not have LAN support so no Garena user can play it. Only those who have paid for Blizzard account can play it.

Starcraft2 is well designed and extremely fun. If you think different you're probably not that good at RTS games - Sorry.

I have yet to see Blizzard fail. Every one of their games has been extremely successful. It will either be as good as Valve's or better.

And as if sci-fi will make Dota crap. Dota is essentially already sci-fi if you look at some of the heroes... it's the map that isn't you idiots.

Well, first of all DoTA is not an actual game, its an abuse of gameplay mechanics forced into works by a very talented modder.

Hiring IceFrog would indeed bring another DoTA but what if DoTA could become something more?

A real gamedesigner would probably give up on the idea of MoBA since there cant be too efficient controls like in Starcraft 2, the controls are just awsome.

So with the im not gonna say bad controls but mediocre a crucial part of your skill is learning how to move your hero as efficient as possible.
In League of Legends they put everything that made DoTA unique and started to take away and add features that was necessary. Now im gonna say that when League of Legends came out it was King, I even liked better than HoN (sure laning phase wasnt that hard in LoL but I didnt have any problem with it in HoN either)

NOW however Riot has become a company that feeds on casuals. Its an evil circle, if u make it too hardcore no one will play it and thus creating no playerbase for there even to be a competitive playerbase.
So they are just trying to make more money by as of now releasing Champions every third week or something. (in the beginning there was like 20-30 I think now it is 63! in like two YEARs!)

HoN released like 10 heroes in one and a half years but they patch and do balance changes like a prof company however, they took the safe root and made a DoTA with better interface.

MoBA needs to have faster gameplay and some Dual Stick action!

Well you guys don't have a point, Blizzard create warcraft 3 and ice-frog create Dota map without warcraft 3 no DOTA so STFU and play it before judging OK.

Maybe, but they the one who created all the image. For SC 2 fan sure love this. But you guy cant judge without even try it. Think carefully. No blizzard no icefrog. If blizzard never make warcraft III the DotA mod never exist. Blizzard make warcraft III and icefrog make DotA in warcraft III. If you all complain blizzard ' Stupid mod stealer '. Then do you think blizzard have no right to make a idea that people make inside warcraft III?

1. Learn basic English.
2. IceFrog did NOT create DOTA.
3. The word "Dota" is trademarked, NO ONE has the right to use it on their own games, that includes Blizzard.
4. Dota was not created by blizzard either, it was created on one of their gaming engines but they did not create it, so if they make an official Dota game, they would have to change the name, otherwise they will get lawsuits.
5. Learn Grammar.

however, unlike many others (fanboys mostly) im not mad at blizzard for "stealing" dota, after all it wouldnt have been created without sc or wc3 as stated in this video, im just happy this magnificent genre is evolving and that MOTHAFUCKIN BLIZZARD is taking its turn in creating a dota-like game; its a bit weird that they actually call it DotA, not a very smooth move imo, but still, theyre doing great games and i was already regretting buying SC2 (not very good at micr ^.-), which will hopefully change soon :)

icefrog is making a full game. people who dont have 60$ will not play blizzard dota. dota 2 would probably cost something like 40$. besides, i dont play starcraft 2 for dota. dota 2 would beat this blizzmod.

Why is everyone assuming, that people will buy starcraft 2 only for the dota map? And how can this icefrog own rights to dota if he made it on blizzard's platform?

Since the dota isn't the only game mod of sc2, maybe you should base your comparisons somewhere else than between the 2 games.
If you want dota only, maybe dota 2 will be a better choice, but I don't understand why you should pay any attention on blizzard's map.

Ok, after reading every comment on this page i can say that at least 80% of the people that did comment here are sold out to valve and have no interest in Starcraft 2 to begin with. I've played it for a long time and since blizzard isn't charging extra for the DOTA map why complain, to be honest there are already some user made DOTA maps on B.net already, a very popular one is SOTIS: Storm of the imperial sanctum. I've played this so many times and really enjoy the change of pace from the intense macro and micro management from the SC2 ladders. I believe anyone that posts any comment like onces i read a moment ago. "i'm not going to pay 60$ for blizz dota" are just victims of mental health issues as if you really played SC2 you would already have the cd-key, so those people must have simply cracked the game. what a waste considering SC2 is just so much fun and probably the best RTS game there is out right now.

B.net community is a really good one, you will rarely find smack talk on it, unlike this forum where it seems to be used only for this. Most of you should just think about the comments you posted and bring your own lack of knowledge to your attention rather then trolling blizzard and favoring valve that simply took a map created in the blizzard community and is making a profit off of it .... the way i look at it, blizzard isn't the money greedy one, valve is. Blizzard seems to simply want to keep it's fans happy by releasing something that some of them will enjoy so they don't need to waste money on valve's so called "DOTA trademark". Doesn't anyone here think that for a game MOD valve is going a bit too far and not thinking at all about it's community?

well i hope this could help bring a better point of view but i know most people won't even bother reading the whole thing.

Wouldn't it be cool that we make something we present as new and use our own character names. Then we can sell you a game so you play this MAP. That was inspired by Dota. But this is not Dota this is Blizzard Dota. Can't day at least don't use the name DOTA. Call it Blizzardia. Or SC2 fail cause of again 10 time more speed then RTS game should have. And totally worthless for the normal players. So here we present you a crappy copy of DOTA (omg not one more we go so many already) with the incredible characters of Blizzard. Buy more books so you can read about them. You already got WoW DOTA what do you need SC2 Dota for ...

Don't just hate this because it's on SC2. Don't hate it because it's a ploy by Blizzard to make money(it isn't; the map will be free like the other 3 maps Blizzard made for Blizcon). Don't hate it because it uses the name DotA, even though they probably should have used something else. Hate it because you've played it and didn't like it. If you don't have SC2 for whatever reason, then don't bother commenting...you can't play this, anyway...
I played this at Blizcon, and must say it was very good. I have no doubt in my mind that DotA2 will be better, but for a free map(whenever the heck they finally release it) it was worth playing.

half of the comments are stupid, 1. its just a custom map for sc2. 2. for people that say dota is for wc3 not sc2, go read up on dota they got the concept from sc. NUF SAID!!!

Ok i didnt want to post this but the amount of not knowing anything about and still talking about it is killing me.
Firstly some of you need to fix your spelling asap, secondly i think and i think most of people playing the real dota think what i think, DOTA should stay in warcraft 3 it was invented there by eul, made better by some guys i forgot and made even better by Ice_Frog later on, valve just wants money like everyone else making dota clones and blizzard probably felt betrayed by the fact IceFrog is cooperating with valve on the new dota2 nobody has any idea about excepting its in production and who is making it (+some art)so they did their own dota in attempt to keep dota in blizzard community, thirdly sc2 doesnt suck, people just hate it cause its not as balanced as sc1 and it has 1000 times better map/spell/unit options then wc3 (but the sizes of custom models and skins would be "a bit" too big to upload it) so if someone feels like he has no life he can make exactly the same dota from wc3 but with s2 graphics in sc2, personaly i think dota 2 and sc2 dota cant be compared cause one of em is a videogame by itself and one of em a mod for another videogame (+ if its from valve itl prolly be on steam). so dont spit on one and worship the other untill you know what your actualy talking about or tried both of em. and btw if you hate blizzarrd you hate warcraft meaning you hate maps for warcraft hence you hate dota too (logics ftw)

uhm...
what idiocy..

i mean
DOTA
an acronym for
Defense Of The Ancients

"Ancient Heroes" + "Future Setting" = Mega Crap!

hey retards
do any of thsoe heros look like ancient fantasy style heroes?
than stfu and wait for dota 2

Anonymous said...

@Matteo
Finally, a comment has been made that isn't "Hurr, it's not ancient and medieval, it's crap". Seriously, take a step back. Just because its adopted the SC2 setting dosen't mean its backwards and wrong.
Or has everyone already sold their souls to Valve despite years of enjoying DoTA in Warcraft 3?

DOTA means Defense of the Ancients. why the heck they are making a Dota version on Starcraft. FAIL

Anonymous said...

come on guys.. give the guy a chance :D
about 5 yrs ago, people treat DOTA as just crap warcraft map that didn't deserve tournaments.. and look what it reached now.. Philippines is the origin of DOTA right??? i saw people here playing dota about 6 yrs ago.. i think that was version 6.20+ or something..

How about instead of calling it crap to begin with, take it as it is....try it, if you don't like it afterwards, then don't play.

dumbass!!! why everybody complains about blizzard, the original DOTA was made in Warcraft iii(a game owned by blizzard) they can clone whatever game they own!!! even if it sucks!!!!!!!!! shitheads! dumbass! amoeba brains! FYI Icefrog is working w/ Valve( which has no connection in DOTA community..duh shooting games) DOTA 2 is created for money making!!!! Warcraft iii(Blizzard) is the original home of DOTA!!! fuck you all!!!

Anonymous said...

YOU IDIOTS, THE ORIGINAL DOTA DESIGN WAS A STARCRAFT CUSTOM GAME!!!!!! BLIZZARD HAS FULL RIGHT TO USE DOTA AND THEY DIDNT COPY SHIT THEY MADE IT FIRST SO STFU

Anonymous said...

I think this idea is not bad at all, except SC2 needs lot's of PC requirement coz of it's exceptional graphics and it's not for free :D ...
Defense of the Ancients??? Xel'Naga, Protoss and Zerg are more Ancients than Night Elves and the Burning Legion, not to mention Hybrids(Dark Voice)...Medieval Humans are not even Ancients, but it's acceptable
Icons & Sci-fi graphics ???? oh come on.. thats why we have an Modifier/Editor...and Blizzard owns both SC2 and Warcraft III so they are basically the same thing.. DOTA couldn't be possible w/o Blizzard's Warcraft III... so they have the rights to clone it...

Starcraft Dota will be a fun mini-game to sc2 but i don't think it will be played as much as either original dota or next generations Dota2.
Its true that the original "Dota engine" needs to be updated. But all the current contestants are not flawless. And as long as they are not perfect, i will consider them as "third-party games" to Dota.

BLIZZARD DOTA will suck balls!! i tHink that cause look at the images....it's like drawed in paint!!

Valve dota will be the best hit ever!!! it will crush Blizzard Dota And Dota in 3 days...

Maybe Blizzard Will Create Warcraft 4 Before They Make This Map !SC2 Is Sucks It Is Only Science Fiction It Will Be A Epicfail if they do this . it will be good if they remake warcraft then create dota . that's will become a good ideal .

Seriously guys... have any of you even seen the original interview where the staff introduced this ??
They paid all homage to the old DotA that they need to.
Hell they explicitly said they created it because they DID love the old DotA.
They also created it to put the idea into the community.
To see what we did with it.

A game engine that can do everything WC3 did and do it better.

A game engine with superior graphics compared to WC3.

Sure it can't compare to the nostalgic feeling the old WC3 DotA has but hell, almost NO SEQUEL EVER can.

Stop whining, I get the feeling most here are die hard fanatics that would stay in the burning boat even as it smoulders to ashes and sinks right under your feet.

Times change, games change.
Hell even the players and player base change.

I feel what Blizzard did was awesome if for no other reason than the fact that it will be immensely cool to see where the fans take it from here.
They gave us the basic tools, 1 map, some characters and the ground rules to build on.

Where Blizzards little mod goes from there they have left to us, the users. And if nothing else, as a free gift, that is a really cool thing to do.

Will it beat the other DotA's I have no idea.
But it will be interesting to see where they go with it from here.

PS: Seriously though... stop complaining. Over half the posts read as childish ranting and little else.
Even if some of you have a point.

People stupidity is astounding.. you people do realize with out Blizzard there BE NO DOTA and the fact your screaming how blizzard is offering player a FREE game mode to owners is a sell out compared to a guy who sold his talents to valve to make a game were getting for free but you have to pay for speak level of your mentality to me.

"DOTA IN SPACE DOESN'T WORK!?!?!?" this is the dumbest one I've herd, if the game PLAY the exact same who the fuck care if it fantasy or sci-fi the mechanics of the game there.

It just comes down to the fact people wanna think valve is some kinda "for the underdog" developer… I’d like TF2 to speak different about valve character.

You now get crate you have to open with a key you have to use REAL cash for.

Ya that totally not a sell out company.

DOTA = Defense of the Ancients

An ancient on a Sci-fi future based game? It seems so unreasonable and stupid.

I think a sci fi ascpect would be super cool, great new graphics etc. I don' t think ping and user control will be what it should be on the sc2 engine, as of now at least...
