    Yeah, starcraft two has both koreans and blizzard fans. It won't exactly die out. But its quality, well, since I'd trust other things than panther-anthro's word, kthx, we'll just have to wait and see.

    Wc3 only seems dead during these times

    3am-5am GMT : London

    :) Any most of the maps are Dota maps so it seems kinda dead because most people don't like dota maps.

    ...no. They don't eat, they don't sleep, and they don't love. They are not born. They are created.

    the only problem i have with wc3 is the number of imbalanced maps. like on footies vs grunts, which used to be a fun map, now has little tiny bunny heroes that are extremely imbalanced. versions before that had an imbalanced marine. Hero Line Wars is corrupt completely, some heroes extremely rape everything and others can hardly survive the creeps attacking them.
    another thing i hate to see in the wc3 community is EVERYONE vs 1 person. these maps are dying down but they are still there. in most cases, people never want to be the 1 enemy. there are stupid maps where its 11 people vs 1 "ultra" guy, sure sometimes it may be fair, but no one wants to play a map where they are isolated from everyone else while everyone else is having fun building up bases or what not. like helms deep, people are willing to play as the orc but people always want to be the humans, since they have to hardly do anything except for sit back and sometimes move the hero. one thing ive also found retarded in these type maps is that the orc hero always gets killed and never has a chance to level up, where the human heroes sit back with the archers and get tons of free exp as wave after wave of orcs are sent at them, then you have a lvl 20 hero that cant be stopped.
    well, thats my rant on wc3 and some of the maps out.

    In footies v grunts, most all custom heroes are very imbalanced, apparently.

    footmen frenzy (5.4) is well balanced but there are cheats for it everyone knows
    dota is extremely balanced but most people have a sort of anti-fanboy feel about it not to mention most players are assholes and dont allow room for newbs

    They NEVER sleep. If one dies off from exhaustion, another comes to replace it before you can blink an eye.

    Only a few heroes in DotA are actually balanced. And those are the ones people play. What's the point in having 80-something heroes if only a few of them are actually balanced?

    This is one of DotA's major flaws.

    If people cant watch a TV series consecutively enough to where they know exactly whats going on JUST for that reason why would those people want to learn a map for more than 10 minutes? >< And dont start saying this statement is false and that things like 'Heroes' is needed to watch consecutively. If you watch something like Beast Wars and miss 2 episodes you may have just skipped something that will be brought up later, and itll get real confusing once that starts happening.

    They can die? I thought, like bacteria, they just split into two younger DotA players. Haven't you ever seen DotA colonies before?
    Something doesn't have to have a 10 minute tutorial to involve more depth in thought than "hungry hungry felhounds". Those games are fun for a while, but in the end, they're still minigames.

    not true..heroes on dota are bsaically good heroes and average heroes, then other heroes that to their own tasks. if you play ar, which is what most play, you usually get a balanced team of all 3. good heroes like the bloodseeker are easier to play and will dominate if not stopped early game. average heroes depend mostly on the players skill level, they could break even, or maybe get mega kills, depending on the players skill level. other heroes such as the broodmother excel in lane pushing and sneak attacks, or the techies, which if the player is good enough get their triple kills once in awhile. ive never encountered an imbalanced hero though.. if you think there is one, id like to hear who it is.

    I just simple hate dota, who knows who was the first guy who have made dota (Icefrog has just stolen it), i have read on a chat forum a topic about dota, and there some guys have asked "does i need warcraft to play dota?". This is wicked sick :thumbs_down:. It is not such a bad game but it should not be so popular.

    Dota was originally created by Eul on USWest i believe, the original dota website was Thewarcenter.com and i did like playing dota then because it was a good game for RoC, which didnt use tombs (big + there) had custom units and custom spells with custom models animation etc. all before TFT came out. Games with simple TFT functions on RoC are greatly appreciated, there was a game called The Summoner for RoC that had the ability to get to level 100 and each hero had there own summon spell... This is probably the reason dota rose to fame in the first place but once icefrog made Allstars it got out of hand and is just rediculous

    If DotA was made by Eul, then what the hell did Ice Frog do then?
