I've had contact with one of the Chinese beta testers, he told me that he felt the gameplay was more like DotA then HoN, in that it felt a bit slower, just like DotA.
someone should make a dota2 forum for former HoN players. this way members of the hon community that play dota2 will have a place to gather.
IF has a history of letting heros go OP for quite a while. It all depends on how far away from eacother the patches will be in DotA2.
Unless the porgammers came up with some ingenious method it's simply not going to happend.
WTF mode probably will, though.
i'm sure icefrog will step up his balancing for dota2. i don't think Valve will let dota2 not be competitively balanced.
Comment on gosugamers:
How ****ing clueless can some be LOLThe video was made/rendered with the Source Video Maker and that means that all scenes are from ingame and that is what you can expect the game to look like.
The trailer brought me back a few years ago playing DotA...
If Valve can provide a proper set of gaming servers (which S2 seems to be unable according to the EU servers issues), I will definitely swap to DotA 2 on the long term.
For now, wait and see.
You know, CSS. TF2.
Both those games are comparable to DotA2 in the sense that they were classic games, with competitive playerbases, being revamped into a new game by Valve. Both games failed at the competitive side, and went for casual appeal.
havent heard about the other teams.
the new cs wont be pc only there goes ur competitive playerbase valve
Don't be so scared, it is just a game.
dota2 will have its place and will succeed when balanced.
graphics are cool, because you get that medieval magic feeling.
i wouldnt compare it lol or hon, it is a game of its own as those two.
there was a time when ppl enjoyed games. Now everything kinda sux for everyone. Because many trolls came and established divisions like "this game sux no skill no brain", "no, your game sux my game rox". To such i say **** YOU i'll play all the games.
trailer is awesome ! any information about the release date? so i can uninstall hon from my pc.
Holy ****, so much mad hatred towards S2 in this thread. You guys seem very tense, I think you should try getting laid or something..
