I hate it because there are much more enjoyable AOS maps than dota.
I hate it because it's overrated and overplayed.
I hate it because it has too many heroes.
I hate it because items play a too big role in determining the winner.
I hate it because of the short fights and stun locks.
I hate it because you can't buy units.
I hate it because of the bad terrain.

That sums it up for me.

I don't hate the game, but certain elements about it. Like having to "know" which items to get, and how people call you noob when you don't know every single mode, what every single ability/hero does, all the items and all the strategies.

I also hate people who play it, die, blame the team, call us noobs, start flaming and when I tell them to stfu, they tell me to get a life and act like a 12 year old nerd.

Dota... What can I say? It does fill up the custom games list about 4/5 is dota. People play it over and over, get over it already. So many people host it, it's like it needs its own filter!
- Any Type
- Melee
- Custom
- Dota

Whats the big buzz about it anyway, it's boring.

I also don't like the fact you can end up with ridiculous damage and attack speed. It makes many spells useless. It disables a big part of wc3 spells- channeled spells. It doesn't disable activables, but they're still not in DotA.

Last DotA game I played, my ally, who played the heroine using Dark Ranger model, had a 600 damage bonus o_O

even though i'm an avid dota player, i'm really not interested in wasting my time on pubs and it's so hard to get an aos game that's not dota (OR THAT BAD NARUTO GAME) up cause they take forever to fill, people need to dl, people leaving once it doesnt fill/dl fast enough, etc

probably #1 most annoyance for me. but i still like it.

that bad naruto aos (3rd shinobi wars) was inspired by dota. even the items are quite similar. I hate it.

Umm I think this thread is useless and full of nonsense oppinions on a to much played map.
Probable this thread would he more useful if there would be voting poll.
It could took like this.

Why you hate dota?
1. I am bad dota player
2. It is too much hosted
3. It steals all from others
4. If just annoys me
5. All 4 reasons!!!!!
6. I don't hate it, I dont like it.
7. I don't hate it. I love it a lot!!!

this would be all opinions I saw in this thread for now.

Alright, here are my reasons for hating the map.
1) I hate it because it too popular and ruins the mapping community because it stops some creative map makers to actually put their ideas into life.
2) The map is too much hosted which result in good maps never get popular and usually fade away.
3) The map has too much content.
4) The DoTA map is beginning to be considered as a game which is totally silly.
5) There are probably a lot more but that is all I can think of at the moment.

1) and 2) are nearly similar reasons.
3) I don't understand how a map with a lot of content is bad.
4) If it's not a game then what is it?

My reason for hating dota:
I don't like the map. And in more details,
1. Items matter more than the heroes.
2. Experience matters more than skill.
3. Stunlocks are annoying.
4. Farming takes way more time than the battles.

If Dota didn't have any of these, I wouldn't mind if it became the most popular map ever.

Yes, the creators of dota suck for stealing things but don't you think it's the n1 map of all custom since it is the most played and there r tourneys? I personally play this wtf just for fun, coz I don't like that game or any custom non-melee.

But this getting kicked when u dont have lag in some stupid 'nordic only', I'd say kick all nordic in non-nordic games. I don't play this game and i don't care... but it has happened and irritated me.
