DotA 2 Announced, Coming in 2011

DotA 2
After a long wait and all the rumors Valve has announced official release of DotA 2 in 2011 which will be released on both Mac & PC. As you may already know, IceFrog was hired by Valve in late 2009 for the development of most popular Warcraft 3 Mod - DotA. Now, they are about to release Valve DotA 2 in which the whole DotA concept will be ported in upgraded manner.

DotA 2 Utilities has been launched.
Now Providing DOTA 2 Updates, News & Guides

DotA 2 - LinaDotA 2 MorphlingDotA 2 Drow Ranger

The vital change in DotA 2 is that it will run on Valve's Source Engine which will remove all the Warcraft 3 limitations. All the heroes, items, terrain, buildings will be ported same as in current version of DotA. Anyone who plays Warcraft 3 - Dota will instantly recognize DotA 2. However, there are still some things which are new in DotA 2.

Following are some features Valve introduced about incoming DotA 2:

DotA 2 BloodseekerIn-game Voice Chat:
DotA 2 will have integrated voice chat feature which will allow players to communicate during game without using 3rd party software.

Leaver AI replacement:
Disconnected players will be replaced by AI bots which will take control over the hero. It will be available in unranked matches.

Heroes Voice:
DotA 2 will feature new voice work. You'll get amusing lines from heroes as they deny the enemy team last hits on creeps, and champions who have backstory connections will trade quips when nearby.

Rewards & Matchmaking System:
Valve is using it's traditional Steamworks as a matchmaking & community rewards system which will allow you to create in-game rewards for participating in community forums.

Coaching & Training System:
Once again, Valve is coming with a great innovation of coaching system which will be used to train a beginner to learn DotA 2 to sustain a respectable position in the community. It will allow veteran players to login as a coach. Coach can see beginner's screen and can get private voice chat during the game.

It is indeed a revolutionary & surprise step taken by Valve by entering in the world of MMO-RTS games with the help of IceFrog. Finally, DotA Fans had some relief after hearing some of the features of the upcoming DotA 2. The upgraded heroes are still looking remarkable in the images. It's good that Valve DotA 2 team revealed something but fans will still consider it as a drop in a ocean that IceFrog still refused to disclose his name in the community.

Stay tuned for the further updates, DotA-Utilities will be your final stop for all the news & updates for DotA 2.

what's with everybody whinging that it should be free? do you wan't the game to be good or do you want it to have no funding and suck ass? OR do you want to bombarded with ads everytime you die?

i mean, it's not like dota was free, you had to buy WC3. unless ofcourse you illegally downloaded it, which DOESN'T give you the right to it.

Introduce a re-connection feature........
Supposing The player gets disconnected Let the AI replacement work its way only upto the point where the player returns. Or it just wont be fair,considering the fact that the AI might be better then the original player himself.Also i've noticed AI use 'hacks'<--- NOT EXACTLY
i have seen them use kelens dagger twice in 3 seconds and more.So the improvements should go around these factors

Nice to hear the release of DotA 2 this very year and hope it will be a blast and all but i sincerely recommand that the requirements and other supporting stuffs should be made so that nearly all of the DotA population can play it.After all its a game which has already grasped the minds of a lot of folks so will be disheartening for them 2 if they dont get an opportunity to play it.But am happy with all the work and all and thank you valve for creating this wonderful game and hope it will be more of a success than DotA. :)

Dota 2 will be a totaly great game, cause Valve makes great speceffects like for HL2 , CSS e.t.c Dota 2 would be their first Strategy game (except Portal) Hope IceFrog will make the standart heros and add more items , heros , skills , balances , cause I would not want to say good bye to Lifestealer , Huskar , Bara , Juggernaut , Ranger , Sharpeye , Earthshaker e.t.c Dota 2 will kick ass HIGH...

I agree to make it cheaper for us. And one more thing, let us have the opportunity to buy the game in various methods like money online (mol) and not just credit cards. I have been playing dota for almost six years now. an account should not be more than $30. if you have something better in mind, w/ respect for the player's capability to pay, then feel free to make it FREE. just kidding. :D

I'm a bit sure any of those shitty computers can run this game pretty well because according to the system req it requires only a ggraphics card equivalent to Nvdia 6600 and a CPU of 2.4MHz

Players of DOTA all-around asia especially the philippines...Don't worry about the game not being free coz some hackers gonna hack this game and turn it into free.

Good to here that its still the good old dota with improvements , and its F2P! how good is that!

i dont like how HoN and LoL is presented kinda crappy for me, LoL turns dota into somekind loony atmosphere and HoN feels players a bit heavy character handling something like that

I'm totally disappointed from the Dota 2. May be because I expected too much from it, but in my opinion it looks terrible. We live in 2011 and if you look all games which are released you will noticed that every game gets better and better with its graphic, sound, effects and Dota 2 ... silence.
The look and feel of the game gets me back in my childhood with the simple cartoon animated films. The motions of the heroes includes, hmmmm 1 basic movement - is that all? Am I right? Could it be more complicated - some steps back and front while they are attacking? I'm so much frustrated. :s
And what about the sound? They've changed the announcer voice but some how they missed or forgot the old announcer of first blood and so on. So ridiculous...
What about the new features - a couple of new key bandwidths and reconnect , AI when an allay is disconnected ?!?!
Defenatly reconnect, bandwidts are a must, on the other hand AI is a new feature which we haven't seen before in dota game followers but I keep asking myself - is it worth?
I was so impatiant of Dota 2 release but from that i saw i think valv has failed. It looks like they've appertained with their task lightly and this is the result - the feel of couple of months rapid dev and disappointment ...

I hope it would be FREE of charge....

NOT REALLY

Tyler said...

Hope they decide to make this buy to play. If you could afford warcraft 3 plus its expansion then whats the big deal?

I think this is going to be great; however, I have a couple concerns.
- First of all, is it just going to be the same map? We've seen this and frankly its starting to get repetitive. I really like how LoL added new maps, gave a nice spin. Too bad the gameplay wasn't like in warcraft... the perfect delay.
-Also, its the same heroes! I understand the love for some of them, but there truly is nothing new here. We've seen this before it is a little upsetting.
-How will the official Starcraft 2 dota affect dota 2? I currently play starcraft 2 once or twice a week and am absolutely bored of custom maps. When they release starcraft 2 dota TONS of people will jump on it. I feel as if dota 2 really missed the boat here.

I am going to try this out if it slides in before diablo 3 or guild wars 2, but the new additions and graphics aren't really what this game needed.

Someone said that they prefer dota 1 then dota 2 ......
Actually dota 2 is the same format/style as dota 1......
But there's some differences between Dota 1 and dota 2,
Dota 2 ,awesome graphite/new item.....
Dota 1 ,low graphite/old item .....

As a result : Dota 2 is better then dota 1

People who do not like it(reason): i.)They PC's are noob

It's valve, so the game will be good. Hopefully the community will be better than the HoN and Dota community and more like the LoL community.

Since Intercontinental match concluded there are several speculations for the Valve’s promoting module about how to showcase your DotA only two. You'll find at the least about three choices:

liberal to participate in
advance settlement involving 40-60$ while other high-end online games charge
monthly/yearly request for you to DotA only two

Liberal to participate in

1. 6 trillion UNITED STATES DOLLAR ended up being expended just straight into Intercontinental match pertaining to gifts. Valve acquired a person's eye in the games packed areas via across the world all of which will have to have that will money back. Consequently many of us feel that liberal to participate in will be the very least probable option.
Do you perhaps desire F2P sport? This means that will builder doesn't have a requirements by any means about how the action are going to be current along with recognized. That can separate a sport perhaps whether it is no cost.

Up-front settlement

Setting up a 60$ settlement for the sport is often a major determination to generate. A lot of will certainly be reluctant along with loose time waiting for avid gamers expertise ahead of generating your invest in.
Valve can be supposed to proceed preserving hosts along with establishing the action in your case. Nevertheless precisely what while that income goes out and about? Precisely how very good assist could many of us count on eventually?

Request

Why don't you consider a new price involving 3-5$ 30 days. That creates thirty five for you to 60$ 12 months. Quite expensive appropriate? Effectively of course however you could keep the action when you desire. Valve becomes income monthly along with continues modernizing the action and provides assist for you to avid gamers. Valve might need to create their ideal in retaining the action exciting along with fresh new.



What on earth is your current stay in pretty much everything? In a very review consumed in “DotA only two Price” a lot of decline your consequently named regular price.
