    I can't stop wondering why so much dota hatred on the forums. Why is it that everytime someone wnats to mention a crappy map they end up saying dota?

    I know the general dota community really sucks (but that kinda applies for all multiplayer games) but the map itself is a quality one.

    Personally, I really like this map. It's addictive, it's highly replayable for an AoS and it has some really tense moments.

    DotA kicks ass. It was a great and origional map, well made and advanced for the time.

    It was then stolen to make DotA:AS. We don't like stolen maps. We don't like great maps being screwed over by someone wanting to become famous off the back of someone else's work.

    And we also don't like maps that revolve around shooting your own troops, last hitting enemy troops, and spending most of the game item whoring and avoiding dying.

    And the DotA:AS community sucks (I mean, they think using leavers' heroes is cheating...).

    i think the main reasons that alot of people dislike DotA is

    A. It is massively overplayed, 2 out of 3 maps hosted will be DotA
    B. It isnt as good as many other fantastic maps which dont get the recognition.
    C. After 2 years of me playing it, im getting very bored of it.

    D. Most spells and icons have been taken from the old but ancient wc3sear.ch which has been turned up to thehiveworkshop.
    For now, the creator is ripping original spell idea's from people here, and remaking them in JASS.
    Before this, he just ripped them off.
    Don't believe me? I have the living proof of a map which spells are included by dota.

    DotA l33ts are annonying. They think that they are gods on the top of the world. Usually I hate DotA because of the people who like to play it.

    This should go on Warcraft III Discussion.

    And what killed Battle.Net was World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft is the 2nd DotA. Somewhat good, but overplayed.

    And the second thing that is about to kill Warcraft III is Starcraft II.

    Thats the whole point of these communities? that you can use the recources. I dont think that the spells creators care about the credits since so great map dota turned out to be

    If almost all of the maps hosted are DotA, isn't it the community's fault rather than the map itself?

    And I know there are better maps out there, but this is indeed a quality one and most of the other maps that deserve recognition are not AoS, they're very different from dota and are also great.

    The only true reason I see to dislike DotA:AS is that the map creator stolen may have stolen resources from other people and crediting the accordingly. If it's heavily overplayed, it's the bnetters fault.

    The problem with DotA is not that it's a bad map, it's just that people don't seem to want to look at anything else. Dota makes it so that it is the only thing that gets the real attention. DotA's made itself into more than just a map. That means that all the DotA players get in the way of the people who only play custom maps, if you take my meaning.
