you mean you got the impression of valve from dota2 "website" i.e.blog? LOL
also there's an upkeep on the number of developers, and I don't believe vavle has more devs working on dota2 than S2 working on hon.

http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/sh...d.php?t=218930 amongst many other things, this one just struck me as.... obvious
I highly doubt Blizzard is going to sue Valve for DOTA2 seeing as how Valve already released a what 5-7pg article about Dota2 and its upcoming release. Why would Blizzard allow one of the most syndicated gaming magazines to publish that article without making some fuss; assuming they were planning to sue them.
They are going to come up with a realignment patch, which will take some heavy testing before released for the public.
Haha, I copyrighted coca-cola, which means that Coca-Cola would be taken to court if anything(wow you're stupid.)
Blizzard's DOTA is not using the SC2 engine, what you are mentioning is merely a custom game within SC2, another notch on your dunce cap.
INSERT VALVE LINK OF MAKING MONEY FROM POSTERS. I mean come on, you think you have some Julian Assange level of information extraction.
I can't quote my sources but you may have to trust me on this one, notably, if you saw the most recent Blizzcon, consider the way in which the panel dealt with the DOTA2 question. Happy hunting.
It's silly that you think we're not a "legit" game developer. Also, how "big" your company is doesn't matter. There are games out there with huge development teams, global offices, and huge investment capital that still don't have functioning replays!
They can't, but better find new ways to generate $$ before its too late!!!
Anyhow, Icefrog ; Who? we have Nigma, Nome, Mspudding & Diva.
HoN. Viva la revolución!
one million sales
You people think he is a huge game developer? You people think if Blizzard made World of Minecraft it would out sale the already one million sales that Mojang has sold?
Also remember S2 has both savage games which have done well as well as a supposed secret game or two they are working on.
I don't think S2 is planning on not dumping more money in HoN.
Nome btw how has cash shop effected sales since going into effect? I see a lot of business reports always showing a great increase in revenue from opening such shops.
And even if HoN does fail in the eyes of DotA2 they could always release their next game, make HoN f2p and profit off cash shop. Many proven examples of games going f2p then tripling in annual profit. (LotRO, DDO)
i have like 2400 coins and my shop doesnt work. trying to learn how to fix it proved fruitless. Valve (i hope) will completely bury this cowboy company that just robbed DotA
So the DotA2 website that is basically a 1 post blog has convinced you the game will kill HoN ? Well that's nice and very smart of you to draw this conclusion only from this, you must be some kind of genius like the rest of the people around here with their DotA2 sigs.
It could have been argued that S2 could put up a fight, but it's so obvious at this point that they're trying to make as much money off the community as they can by making LoL-like additions to attract a new crowd before DotA 2 drops.
What exactly is the OP's problem? Why does S2 have to prove anything? Why would they care when they're an indie developer that has made a successful game with a fairly large playerbase, especially for an indie game? You make it seem like there's some sort of deadline where if S2 doesn't somehow prove something over Valve in time then a black hole will swallow the Earth.
The fact is that Indie developers are some of the last true game developers left who strive to simply make a game people will enjoy and hopefully make enough $ to cover the cost. Hell, some small developers are just happy getting their game played, look at the World of Goo name your own price promotion. Your post essentially puts EA, ActiBlizzard on a pedestal when they ruin a lot of good things for games. Valve's a decent developer/publisher for their size but stop gobbling their dicks and just enjoy the games these people make.
TLDR This is a game forum, not a business forum.
