View Full Version : Who's waiting for DotA 2?

08-16-2011, 12:41 AM

So DotA 2's trailer is out, a couple leaked screenshots can be found at www.dota-two.com (http://www.dota-two.com). I'm just wondering who here is excited? I'm sure there were a couple HoN, LoL and DotA players on this board. Are any of you considering converting?

From what I saw in the screenshots, it looks eerily like HoN. While I loved HoN, I was far too tied to DotA and remained with it. DotA 2 looks like it'll be an easier jump, especially since the interface looks quite similar, and the heroes are perfect ports.

Isn't that just to watch the tournament...?

Well seems like they removed the BETA sign up as soon as the tournament started. It was up for a good like 12 hours at least.

That said, game looks pretty good, very similar to HoN in style imo, but a little... more fluid? The tournaments have been interesting, haven't seen too much just yet, but still, looks like I'll be buying this day 1.

BETA sign up is back up

I'll be buying this as soon as I can, signed up for beta too. It was down during gameplay, and I watched a bit but having never played DotA only knew a few heroes (from my 1000 games of HoN).

I am very keen on this, it woulda been nice if our organisation had gotten to shoutcast haha :D (I'm a caster toooooo)

Not sure if you guys are watching the tournament, but that last match was rather good. Mineski vs ok.Nirvana.cn, very very intense, 66 minute match.

There was a 94 minute match on opening day but it was a huge turtle fest :(

I'm slowly catching on to the heroes haha, watched um.....One of the games last night. Puck, Sven, Faceless Void, Lich and Clockwork (Pharaoh??), we tried the team in HoN...and lost haha.
