    DotA Allstars have change since the release of Dota2 and IceFrog has abbandoned warcraft 3 and moved to Valve to produce Dota2! Defence of the Ancients 2.
    Since then only 2 guys is left working behind DotA 1....DracoL1ch and Santy Keller...


    DotA Allstars - an upgraded and updated version of the original Warcraft 3 DotA. It's not a secret - IceFrog has been busy with DotA2 and for many years now, he doesn't care about Warcraft 3 at all. Of course, we understand his motivation to focus on Dota2 and the associated time-management issues. Why should we be forced to play without any updates for years? So we thought: Nobody can do it better than yourself, right? So we did it. Better. Clearer. More powerful and shiny than ever. And we're strictly following DotaA 2 - the game with almost 8.000.000 monthly players. To ensure distance between IceFrog's original creation and our branch we called it Allstars, like DotA was originally called years ago. DotA Allstars features a compilation of tweaks and changes, which rejuvenates WC3's and DotA's old mechanics and engine. It also stays up-to-date with DotA2.

    We were in contact with IceFrog for a long time, back when WC3 was still important to him. But since over a year, contact broke off completely. IceFrog made it clear - he doesn't need any kind of help. And - since it's about the same answer as "go develop yourself", I did.


    DracoL1ch - main programmer, screenwriter and project Founder. Maybe you heard about his work Legends of Dota (ex-OMG DotA), which also has a successor - Ability Draft (DotA2).

    Santy Keller - modeller, artist and project co-founder. He kept DotA Promode alive for a long time since Unexpect3D left. When it comes to models, he's always nearby.

    Community - loyal players, who actively test and promote DotA Allstars on different platforms. Zloy_xex and LeTruck - the most eminent of them. We wouldn't finish it without your and everyone else's help.

    Special thanks goes to Kuarinofu aka Nobody knows my movies.

    Exceptional mention for all.love.coca, the best designer I've known, for help in days of the past and for his help on this project.

    Because we can. Because we enjoy development almost as much as playing. And it's always fun to try to overcome Warcraft's (and IceFrog's as well) limits.

    Map's landscape properly updated
    The terrain now completely matches DotA 2's terrain. Getting stuck or not being able to use common paths from DotA2 should be a thing of the past.

    Powered Circles of Power
    Circle of power now automatically selects when you die. This allows you to buyback faster. And that's only one of the many improvements:

    • Circle of power now grants access to various settings:
    1. Camera setup configuration;
    2. Direct items selling from it's inventory;
    3. Toggling "right click deny" option;
    4. Option to share your draft on the "Single Draft" mode with allies;
    5. Option "Wheres courier" which displays the courier's location or the location where it has been killed.
    • Additional info is now displayed above the Circle of Power:
    1. Net worth (the sum of current gold and items worth in your inventory). The Numbers become red if the player cannot afford buyback.
    2. Courier respawn timer.
    No lags or delay
    • Improved gameflow perfomance.
    • Reworked most abilities or effects which normally caused a drop in performance
    • Every Warcraft 3 map has "Random delay" option, which randomly delays every given attack order by 0-0.25 seconds. Originally DotA didn't change it, but we did. Every given command now perfomes as fast as possible.
    Testing: Made easier
    • We introduced many new chat commands which allows you to test everything by yourself, in single player.
    • All damage instances are now displayed with float numbers to precisely test for number errors.
    • If you're playing Single Player, you're automatically granted access to the Secret Shop and Flying Courier recipe.
    Even more statistics!
    Observers now have the access to additional data (these fields are also available at the final game table):

    1. Gold and Exp per minute metrics (GPM & XPM);
    2. Total damage done to the heroes and towers;

    • Many icons are also replaced, including Death Pact, Doom, Global Silence, Guardian Greaves, Hook, Moonshard, Octarine Core, Poison Attack, Psi Blades, Requiem of Souls, Skeleton walk, Solar Crest, Spin Web, Moon Shard.
    • Added visual effects for runes, some Aghanim Scepters, Corrosive Breath, Stone Gaze, X Marks the Spot, Moonlight Shadow & Shallow Grave (last two are only visible to allies).
    Modes and commands
    • Modes -xl/-lm have been deleted (outdated).
    • Easy Mode no longer affects the game in any fashion.
    • WTF now supports charged abilities.
    • Normal Mode (default mode if blue does not select any mode) has been deleted and replaced with -AP mode.
    • Removed commands "recreate" & "quote" (useless).
    • Added -cam chat option, allowing players to manipulate the camera's height.
    • ESC button can now be used as an alias for the -clear chat command.
    • Added chat command -names, which changes all players nicknames. 3 types supported for now:
      • Type 0: No changes.
      • Type 1: Players have their player number instead of their nickname (1-5, 7-11).
      • Type 2: Players are called by their hero names (Centaur, Storm, ...)
      • Using -names without any parameters switches the state to the next option.
      • Using -names 0/1/2 directly switches to the desired option.
    • Added chat command -gg.
      • It can be used in order to fast finish the game you won't win anyway. (also known as forfeit or concede)
      • Since you've voted, you cannot change your mind for another 60 seconds.
      • Once whole team called -gg, the main structure will be destroyed in the next few seconds.
      • Command -gg is only available after 15 minutes.
      • Using -switch nullifies a player's vote.
      • Leavers are automatically counted as forfeited players.
    • Chat command -terrain from older versions is now available. It's effects are unclear and could affect your perfomance. Use them on your risk.
      • -terrain default - switch to the default landscape;
      • -terrain city1;
      • -terrain city2;

    Phase Boots
    No longer causes critical strike and bashes to malfunction. Be aware that red numbers with critical strike damage could be lower than usual, but they deal normal amount of damage.

    Bottle recharging now happens 3 times faster than before. Runes are now placed into the bottle automatically on pickup. Using a stored rune no longer interrupts the hero. You can also share a bottle charge with an ally, by dropping the Bottle directly on him. He will be healed and the Bottle will be returned automatically. Be aware that he needs at least 1 empty item slot in order for this to work.

    Smart courier
    You no longer need to drop items on the ground to get proper item combination. Courier will combine every possible thing you could achieve with given items. Just press "Deliver" and enjoy - this even works with full inventory!

    Every item is now droppable
    Using items no longer causes them to be stuck on the hero while they're on cooldown. You can now freely change position of your Dagger or Boots of Travel, or any other items. Reduced the amount of undroppable Aghanims. The few items which still immovable can be swapped with a new command -swapitem (or -si).

    Easy disassembling
    You can disassemble any item which states that it is disassemblable in the description within your inventory. Do it with 4 right clicks over the item. Free inventory slots are required for this to work. Be aware that Tranquil Boots can only be disassembled on the Circle of Power.

    Full price selling
    Last bought item could be sold back for 100% of it's price. This doesn't work for items which has been completed or could be consumed. Doesn't work for Ring of Health as well. You have 10 seconds to sell the item.

    Fast buy
    You can now buy the entire item by just clicking on it's icon in the shop, if you have the gold. If the item has a recipe you need to click twice on the bought recipe in your inventory. Recipes that can be doubleclicked to buy the components now have a purple tint in your inventory. The game checks for every item held by you, your courier and items which lay on the ground in the fountain area.

    Rubick, son of Aghanim
    Rubick can now steal Morph, Shapeshift, Chemical Rage, Firefly & Elder Dragon Form. Moreover, he's also able to steal Spirits, Trueshot Aura & Refraction. We want him to be able to steal whatever he wants - just like in DotA2.

    If you are playing at a platform with an old, outdated map, you can point out to the administration that reborn DotA Allstars can provide much more pleasure to players. It contains all the same content as it's successor, DotA2. DotA Allstars got rid of most bugs that were in IceFrog's maps. Finally, it updates faster and provides more valuable content. Help us to grow stronger by telling others about the map!

    The map is constantly updated, changing many big and small things.. We are taking care about everything, starting from laggy abilities and finishing with user experience. For your knowledge, there are more than 100.000 lines of source code and only a few thousands less text lines. Nobody can test such project on his own. Thats where you can come in by testing and reporting bugs.
    Play the map and report discovered bugs. Report issues with any texts or tooltips as well - English isn't our native language, and grammar-nazing will never hurt. You can also test everything on your own, in single player, thanks to the implemented advanced test commands.

    You can report bugs in here Report bug < D1Stats

    Feel free to ask, discuss or complain about DotA Allstars or anything DotA-related at our forum.

    Open for suggestions
    You have an idea that you think should be implemented in DotA Allstars? Share it with us!

    Please do discuss and debate with us over any aspect of the map!

    I dunno, haven't heard much from Draco himself here. I also doubt much interest in the community, though that's me being ridiculous, as usual.

    Shouldn't it be 2? :wink:

    I think that they might need to get another copy of the game; the updated version, that is, just for version control.
    I might see that as a burden, though.

    Who on earth still plays DotA Allstars? I got bored with it after about 20 games.

    I am interested how the random delay was reduced. Where is such a setting?

    I don't feel that this would fit as news for Hive. However, if you upload your map to the database or to this thread, we can move it to the Map Development forum.
