    I don't have exact numbers, but yes, the games me and TU played were about 30 minutes long and we ended at around lvl 15 - 20, with items and artifacts. I'm talking full conquest mode.

    Ehm, I'm starting to think you haven't even played DotA.

    'Specific hero builds' - what the **** are you talking about? There are no specific hero builds. Your build depends on your enemies and allies, and not some preset 'ideal' .. well, that's the best part about DotA, it's a teamgame, not 10 players playing on their own, all getting supported by one of the two AIs - that's how you try to describe it, right? - to be honest, I don't play Demigod like that either. I buy items to support my team, and win the game, instead of ensuring that my own 'score' looks 'good' or anything like that.
    Besides, heroes in DotA are mostly capable of taking care of themselves as well.

    Yes it is. Describe a situation with action involved in a Demigod game.

    The units are more important in the end, when upgrades have been bought, and you need to bring down buildings. In the beginning they are only for gold and experience points. That's how I view Demigod, and most people I play with.


    Aye, but can you nodge it up to at least 50? So that you get a 30min game or more? It's so silly to play 10minute matches that take 5min to set up.

    Perhaps this is stating the obvious, but if Demigod didn't have action, it simply wouldn't exist. I'm clearly being very literal, but you say something like that, and you leave yourself open to literal.

    This is just to show when this thread switched from being about Demigod to being about DotA.

    Also I'd like to add that just because few people like DotA, and are willing to defend it still, it does not mean that Hive is over-populated by DotA haters.

    Also I'd like to agree with Gilles from the first page, for those of you who don't know what I'm agreeing with, here's the quote.

    Stardock made this thread 'about DotA' (if you can call comparing two games a thread about the game you compare the topic-game to) when they claimed that Demigod would be a revolutionary remake of the popular WC3 Mod DotA. Not exact words, but the essence of it.

    Aight, I gave you a free hit, but everyone realize what I intended to imply. Example-wise, if you put on an action movie you've seen too many times, and play it off at half speed, you won't get the feeling it's an action movie (especially if you also cut any scenes with explosions and intense gunfights). That's what I see in Demigod. It's DotA, ripped off it's action-filled parts, at half speed. It's simply not fun, not intense, it's plain boring. (To me.. 'cause I've played 'too many' DotA matches.)

    Yes, it is. I have not seen any other WC3 Fan site with as many anti-DotA forumers as the Hive. If you put up a poll about it, I'm sure the results would be pretty much:

    Hate DotA (for either gameplay, community, it's popularity, and/or other) - 70%
    Accepts DotA (as a well made game with some flaws) - 20%
    Love DotA (for gameplay, community, and/or other) - 10%

    Never even heard of EotA (new stuff?), must be an America or China exclusive map.

    EotA is hosted on nordic by bot HostEm all the time... And it sucks. I run the map with constant 20 fps and I picked a hero using Mountain Giant and every time I casted one of the spells my fps dropped to 1.
