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 DotA is not even near Warcraft DotA and with the incoming DotA2, they have no chance.

Blizzard is just making a last minute bold action cause they didn't support Warcraft DotA for these years and is failing at making a new game that can be as popular as Warcraft DotA.

@ anonymous

I totally agree man... valid points...

Wow.... there is allot of good and stupid comments here.... first dota always going to be dota no matter in what way you play..... so if blizzard decide to make dota for starcraft 2 is ok just a new way to play dota whit your friends that all... so what is the big deal if you like it just play and if you don't keep you bs and funny ideas to yourself

You guys are silly, DOTA was built on BLIZZARDS map editor. So giving all this credit to some guy that came up with the concept and made it work on an easy to use program made by blizzard is just retarded. Dont forget he released it for free to the public, but now is looking to profit? I mean i would want profit too but i would realize that i made it for free on someone elses program with someone elses tools knowing that THEY own all the rights to anything i created. And no offense but the dota for wc3 was great for its time but its terribad now. I know you all like it and what not but its a dinosaur. I for one am looking forward to blizzard dota to be another possibly fun, free moba. Also im tired of goblins, mages, trolls, and elfs. I will be looking forward to something sci fi in this genre to play. As i own sc2 already, if i didnt i would just play lol instead. If dota 2 is free i will try it too, but if its anything like the original where i have to remember weird item "recipes" and go to 10 different shops just to get an item then i will not be interested. Although im partial to the lazy style of these games i must say that i think the future in these games are completely skill based without the "snowballing" effect of killing and getting gold and buying items and whatnot. If that sounds good and interests you check out bloodline champions, its free and its exactly what i just described. Lets not forget that Aeon of Strife was the original. Im not sure if icefrog created that one but i doubt it, so if you really wanna be a fanboi to the originator of this genre find out who made that and fanboi them. Peace

it's just like before...

you can't appreciate the blizzard dota at first...

maybe after you try it, there'll be a better real judgement than judging the book by it's cover...

When is this Dota going to be published?

Anonymous said...

Dota is a game for angry raging nerds kids anyways...do we really want them to infest starcraft?

Anonymous said...

Funny thing with all the people that talk shit about Blizzard cous they are making a DOTA map to SC2. I wanna play it. And besides, DOTA is based on the WC3, hero, items, units ide etc and most parts of the DOTA concept is made by Blizzard themself.

VALVE, S2 games and all other companies that is making a DOTA clone to is the real greedy bastards. Cous Blizzard made the major design of DOTA and put alot of money into making the map creator for maps like DOTA to come up. If it is any company at all that deserves to make a DOTA clone its Blizzard.

We should thank Blizzard cous making sutch a great game and map creator like WC3, else DOTA wouldnt even exist.

Enough said.

if starcraft 2 dota will support lan to lan then i will go to stardota, because dota is originated in warcraft 3 which is developed by blizzard they own the design of the heroes and characters in dota, blizzard will not allow valve to use dota hero designs

Anonymous said...

Even though Blizzard has Epic Artist, I think they should hire kunkka at deviant art for the loading screens... He only just made most of the loading screens in DotA...

Anonymous said...

He sounds really nervous ... like, really really nervous. I couldn't help but notice the constant quiver in his voice and ... oh. Blizzard DotA. That's cool, I guess, and definitely something designed to be fun rather than competitive.

And to all the people saying that Valve will sue Blizzard: Can it. As well as the fact that Blizzard DotA is (presumably) not going to cost anything, Blizzard and Valve actually have quite a healthy corporate relationship at the moment.

Anonymous said...

SC2 is the epic game of the moment, but DotA in it? thats a fail...

Anonymous said...

dont know of dota 2 or blizzard dota.. dota game is already a new game, blizzard dota is just a map following the old dota, just in a new game engine, blizzard can always release a new patch for better maps for starcraft,, icefrog didnt made warcraft 3(most popular game engine for dota), blizzard did not made dota (i love that map),,..
why does no one hire buffmeplease??? just saying

Anonymous said...

Dota 2 is already a new game. Blizzard dota is a map.
Blizzard did not made Dota, it was other people not ice frog, ice frog is the current editor of dota maps, blizzard made Warcraft 3, the most popular game engine for dota. ice frog did not made Warcraft 3,, it might be that in the near future that blizzard will release a game thats almost the same of Warcraft, with the same perks of Warcraft 3 like the editable maps and LAN connection and multi player. just saying.

if u know anything about warcraft lore, azeroth could very well exist in the same universe as starcraft, but yet undiscovered. I think when people defend dota by calling out the "ancients" part of it, you are too narrow minded thinking that A) thers only one planet in the universe, and B) ancient things are only relative to our current RL timeline

Whats worth the wait? dota 2 or blizzard dota...

The problem with blizzard is "Near future" could mean in the next 10 years, but usually its worth the wait

What's all this bitching and complaining about? It's free! This is awesome. If you don't like it, don't play it.

The people saying that DotA was made in blizzard map editor is actually wrong, most of the work done on dota is with 3rd party tools. Look it up if you don't believe me.

this guy should never talk again. doesnt know how to explain anything. not to mention this game looks like crap

Anonymous said...

Dota on WC4 would be better. BLIZZDOTA vs. DOTA2= missmatch

Anonymous said...

Jesus, DotA originated from and old Starcraft map called Aeon of Strife. Which is why the genre of these ''games'' are AoS, and the reason the guy is nervous is because it's the first time he is up there, sitting in front of thousands. And you all shouldnt forget Eul & Guinsoo. IceFrog really don't deserve credit for the ideas.

This will be goood. Blizzard can make new models it's easy for them :))IMPORT THINGS MAKE IT HD/HQ those who are saying blizzard is stealing from icefrog THINK AGAIN DUMBASSES

FOR EVERY MAP CREATED ON WORLD EDITOR IS A PROPERTY OF BLIZZARD DotA is just a mod from EULS -> GUINSOO -> ICEFROG

Oh people quit yappi'n and just play the game!!

be happy that there's a DotA version in SC2

yeah I gotta say that it will kill the SC2 classics.. but uhh

who cares? let's have fun!!

Anonymous said...

Well people, if you thinking that's it's killing DotA Warcraft or the classic of Starcraft 2.... it's already killed by the time they put and allowed Starcraft 2 Galaxy Editor Map...

Just like warcraft... before DotA came to fame... It's all about buildings and units...

Hope you read this but uhh...

The orc like characters sucks... it doesn't bring out the "Starcraftness" it's turning like into a 3000 year old Warcraft... not starcraft... but the tauren looks great...

Ze'Muro sucks... futuristic orcs....Well, let's the barbarousness of orcs transformed into a civilized futuristics? that's so not orcs... orcs just doesn't fit in sci-fi world... do you get my point?

it's really cool if you'll replace the orc race... I dunno maybe protoss? or some uhh... but just not orcs...I mean they're so common.. and old..

Thank you

One more thing...

About the stats

Replace "Dex" as "Agi"
cause Dex looks like it's a ranger

also Replace "Int" as "Psi"
to bring out the uniqueness of starcraft 2

that's all :)

hope you read this

LOL. die valve! YOU WILL NOT TAKE OUR WC3 DOTA AWAY

Anonymous said...

pff flame wars, firstly all of the "blizz wants more money *noob face*" its kinda the goal of every gaming company in existance (including valve), judging from what we know atm about dota2 (meaning 2 or 3 concept arts) we cant possibly mark it as good or bad, i suggest sticking to the original or if you dont like the old graphics get LoL, its not that bad and it admits its an attempt at a improved dota (also the original dota allstars author Guinsoo made it, after all nothing beats the first one

Anonymous said...

Since DOTA was originally owned and designed by Blizzard, as you can read on the popular League of Legends website. They are a branch off of Blizzard and probably have a partnership with them.

its a starcraft 2 custom game that will probably be fun... if u dont want to play it on sc2 then dont.. damn

All of the people saying that dota needs to stay on warcraft 3 ....lol keep whining. who cares about the theme. its the game play that really matters. Warcraft 3's engine is out of date and SC2's engine will be way better. Who cares if some of the aesthetics are exactly how the original dota was.

its cool to see Dota with a face lift. Its a precursor for dota 2 from valve.

DrunkLurker said...

ROFL. Most people don't realize that first DotA map came from Starcraft. Google "Aion of Strife" if you think I'm wrong.

LOL Im not god at eng but most of u are fucking idiots. :D Look retards DotA(Defense of the Anciets) is just name of this map. Blizzard cen make mape with rules like DotA but in Sci-Fi and other name right? SO WHAT IS A FUCKING PROBLEM? If u h8 them then fuck out. Look i rly like DotA wc3 but this game is kinda old and all this LoL, HoN are pice of crap. So why dont open on new, stop h8ing and check blizzard map? GG sorry for my english.

I think DoTA on WCIII is the best since its original...
If DOTA 2 does not have similar gameplay it will be a big letdown..

Keep it up blizz!

Anonymous said...

Pooh DotA is a registered trade mark of blizzard and Blizzard dont have any need to show its domination over strategy gaming world blizzard is ruling and DotA 1 is much more powerful. now here the launch of valves DotA 2 shows the domination of Blizzard as valve is launching it and blizzard is not launching fucking counterstrike so here is the conclusion that "Blizzzard Wins"

Anonymous said...

crazy valve lovers should know that DotA is of blizzard so what valves making DotA2 is a cheaper idea to become revolutionary. crazy valve lovers dont try to compete fucking valve with blizzard because its not now blizzard its "ACTIVISION BLIZZARD" who does not only posses a PC gaming crown with WOW but now on XBOX-360 and PS3 with the title "Call of Duty" :D So "ACTIVISION BLIZZARD" WINS AND VALVE LOSES

lol a bunch of faggot whinners saying "i dont like starcraft 2.. it looks too sci-fi blah blah blah" well i say fuck you bitches. you never tried it yet and you complain shit. it sucks if you cant afford but it sucks more when you complain on the shit you never even tried. well, fuck you

Anonymous said...

Players are shiting with the issue why blizzard didnot release warcraft 4 or Dota's new version and i also thought the same thing and finally i have solved the puzzle Blizzared launched Warcraft 3 in 2003 and the very next year 2004 it launched the world biggest game of game industry "World of Warcraft" which was and is much more profitable for the Blizzard as compared to Dota just calculate how much Blizzard is earning from WOW 12 million i dont count 12 million we assume 10 million which is lesser and Blizzard charge fee of 15$ from each player and earns 1.5 billion dollar and its continues only one game is giving a tremendous amount so thats is the reason why Blizzard ignored DotA

Anonymous said...

THere will be no DotA if there was no Blizzard guys.
And dont be so dumb saying that Valve will rule!

I think BLizzard DOtA should be in Warcraft3.

do you guys know.. that in the eula of warcraft 3 map editor.. that every map created in the editor belongs to blizzard.. therefore "warcraft 3 dota" belongs to blizzard. the only thing that icefrog can claim is the hero names/items/skills bla bla bla and the idea ofc. the reason why blizzard isnt making this in a seperate game is because valve already made it.. it would be just a bonus game mode in sc2 and dont worry .. most of you dont like sc2.. most sc2 players dont like dota also :P

StarCraft2 "wings of the liberty" has received an IGN's award for the most competitive multiplayer game of the year 2010 so SC2 doesn't need to show its power of gameplay and also StarCraft2 has an honor of its being a part of curriculum for the student of Engineering of UCLA(University of California,LosAngeles) this show the power of StarCraft.

It's nice, I suppose, to have choice, but like the original DoTA, the interface will be a bit haphazard to fit with it's base game. That's why HoN and League work better ... although HoN doesn't really have enough content for the money.

Anonymous said...

Ah well, as far as I see it it isn't even an compitition. It's just an extra thing for sc2, just like dota was an extra map for warcraft 3. Only diffrence is that this one isn't made by players but by blizzard. It's not that people would actually buy sc2 JUST for the dota :P. Sc2 is just a great game, and this is a nice extra thingy ^^.

Anonymous said...

You morons do understand that this is just a side project by Blizzard? It is not being made to "compete" with dota2, hon, or lol. It is being made to promoto the new arcade, and as an homage to the original dota/aos.

Blizzard announced starcraft 2 dota was based on warcraft 3 dota by Icefrog? When was this? I don't remember them saying anything about icefrog. Dota was created by Pendragon and Guinsoo along with their friends, Icefrog had nothing to do with it. Hopefully they will sue icefrog for everything he has.

Dota 2 really blows in comparison to the original. It's like they took LoL and changed the heroes, items and landscape a little. I expected more. And istn't it logic that blizzard asks money if u want to play SC2? The dota will be free tough if u own it. It's not like valve will give dota 2 away for free.

I am really looking forward to blizzard DotA. It is a Blizzard game, so you know it is going to be good. Plus, they actually have good matchmaking, and with a more balanced, smaller game, the matchmaking could actually work. Also, Blizzard is one of the only companies that knows how to create a good community. Looking forward to 15-20 minute games rather than 40-60.

I never liked Dota anyway... but sc2 dota looks different. that's why I'm gonna play it. Dota 2 is just a copy of Dota 1 with better graphics, nothing special. sc2 one is more fun. besides when i play sc2 I don't play sc2 I play multiple maps, like I do in wc3... not just dota. ppl who don't like dota sc2 don't like it cause they don't wanna buy sc2, they think dota 2 will be cracked.

Ok really people, all you saying that Blizzard Dota is going to be shit. You need to stfu until you play it. How in the hell do you know it will be shit. Just because you think it looks like shit now doesn't mean it will still look the same. Its not finished yet, so stop badmouthing the stuff. For the Dota name part. Yes its wrong for Blizzard to do that. I don't see anyone else on here badmouthing the other people coping DOTA play style. Also who cares if its Sci-fi. So all of you just need to stfu.
