    Dota for SC2 by blizzard

    http://starcraft2.com/features/misc/battlenet.xml

    Near bottom, where they talk about custom maps. Watch the custom maps list.

    It's simply an example, as it is one of the most popular WC3 maps. Nothing more.

    You guys don't know blizzard. If they show something, it means they're doing it. Plus the list is a mix from classic blizzard-made, epic fan-made and unknown custom maps. Sure it's an example, but blizzard has always had the habit of revealing stuff like that.

    SCII forum moderator said that this was just an example of possible game titles that could be possible in StarCraft II Map Editor, nothing more.

    Of course they mention the best custom map for the WC3 engine.

    Icefrog doesn't have to "be alright" with anyone, seeing as he doesn't own anything. Blizzard owns all the copyrights to all of DotA. S2 asked Icefrog just to be on good terms. What do you think would happen if Blizzard just swooped in and took over DotA under Icefrog's nose, all of his followers would be outraged.

    Because Blizzard is probably busy with SC2, D3, WoW Addon and that next-gen-MMO already?

    It is just blizzard trying to attract all the WC3 custom map kiddies to buy their game and then buy the custom maps. Nothing more

    They are gonna make so much money.

    The three first titles, SC2, D3 & WoW are already some of the most popular games in their genre, and without a doubt, Blizzards next-gen MMO will be so massive everything will be dust compared to it.

    Yes, it's probably over the top but I can't stop thinking what incredible things Blizzard can do with todays hard&software compared to when SC/D1(2) & WoW was made.

    uh I dont think blizzard needs to trick anyone into buying starcraft 2, as it will most likely be one of the most sold games to ever exist.

    Except that they already announced that the SDK is being released with SC2, so even if they did charge for maps, someone could make an exact copy of it and release that.

    I bet it's going to be super balanced.

    You're reading WAY too much into this...

    All it's saying is "Hey look, you can make dota easily". It doesn't imply in any way that THEY'RE going to make dota.

    And I was at blizzcon, I don't remember that, but I might have just missed it.
