    Just. Don't. Play. It.

    Nah, I dunno. If he keeps the icons like that, it won't work out. Besides, a big portion of the DotA players went to Heroes of Newerth / Leagues of Legends (LoL q.q), so my guess it won't be that popular.

    I don't know what everyone is making such a fuss about.

    The original mapper of DotA most likely won't make a direct conversion for SCII. So what we'll get are a lot of crappy wannabe DotA maps. Until someone manages to make a proper AoS, which will get popular enough. I don't think somethink like DotA will happen again in SCII. But you'll never know, everything is possible with the new editor.
    Everything it takes is a dedicated mapper.

    I'm tired of people hating on DotA. It's an okay map, and with the new hosting system it doesn't even look like it will take up the entire custom games list. No need to worry (as if there was anyways).

    You don't like it, don't play it. Simple.

    Seeing how they hate Dota just cracks me up. So I enjoy watching anti-dota threads. :)

    Somehow this is the last of my concerns for Starcraft II custom maps...

    Dito. And if you check the corresponding video at sc2mapsters, you'll see that the current gameplay quality isn't at its best, especially by mixing up fantasy heroes with future warfare which stays quite noticeable.

    Great, then you have a 1:1 copy of the original map rather than using the chance of creating something refreshing. That's the possibly worst thing they could do and thus, i'm totally not afraid ;)

    And honestly, importing the old models for this? SC2 doesn't even offer the spell-related circumstances the map is using in Wc3.

    Sure, DotA was a good map. Although it was not as good as the hype it got. I mean I know players who only joined to Wc3 to play DotA. They have been AoS nearly as good as DotA, just not as detailed.

    Well said. It feels totaly out of place. I'd play any other AOS with the starcraft theme over this (and I like playing dota).

    Dota's strong point is balance. Other AOS maps usually lack the balance dota has to offer (but you can expect that, since the map is being constantly balanced over the years). AOS's also suffer from dota fanboys who (as you said) refuse to play something other than dota.

    Besides that, Icefrog is working with Valve to make a stand-alone dota game at this time. That's why he isnt gonna remake the map in sc2 (that, plus he agrees that dota theme doesnt fit in sc2's theme).

    I agree with Paladon because I expected a futuristic Dota, with Protoss, Zerg untis not War3 untis and icons ... again... So yes I also won't play i much. I mean you can get this better in war3 and no need to import models. why need magic and heros in sc 2 ....

    I agree here. However, an Sc2 dota would be a lot better, just look at the sc2mapster's Spell Contest, all those spells normally require a lot of coding in wc3 while in sc2 they are made just with the data editor. I think a well made AoS in sc2 will be definetly better than wc3's dota.

    Wasn't there a thread about how you could register map names by submitting junk projects and the names would be entirely unusable by anyone else? So, just spam lots of DotA/DotA Allstars/DotA 4lls74rz/etc. :mwahaha:

    I kid, I kid.

    Also: LOL @ everyone saying a StarCraft-themed AoS would be cool. Uh, gee: Aeon of Strife, which was the genre-namer (AoS) and inspiration for subsequent maps including DotA, was a StarCraft map.

    Its the snobby community that most of us don't like. Well that's what I don't like anyways. Also the fact that (at least before the major bot hosting era we are in) half the custom games list is different dota games.

    DotA was WC3's scape goat for people making crap maps no one wanted to play. If anything goes wrong, blame DotA. It sounds so childish so those people should grow up...

    Currently it looks like any normal crappy AoS people will play once and forget.

    Yes indeed, if blame so much dota, why not do something that will be played more than dota? Currently SC2 shitty bnet doesnt allow mass dota games anyway, so such 'let's bash dota' is super useless

    The irony is due to all the bots, dota is no longer the spam hosted on battlenet. Yes it is probably the most hosted but you struggle to see whole lists of only DotA anymore.

    People still want to make AoS maps? I thought DoTA ruined the whole 'fun' factor of the gametype.
