    Good reasons why you're not buying it.

    No, it's not my type of game, but I will get it at the release date anyway.
    It's Valve, everything they touch becomes gold.

    Anyone who thought this surprise was going to be Episode 3 is an idiot.

    We've been hearing about IceFrog's project for months, there wasn't any indication that it was going to be anything other than DOTA related.

    Fuck, I don't want hats in a DotA game.
    What if they're helmets? I'm all for hats if they're helmets that make my hero look badass.

    If that's how fire looks and acts in-game, then it's a huge improvement to Source.

    Quite messy though, but don't worry guys When Valve is ready they'll show us. If you haven't learned by now, being a Valve fan means having to wait but the end result is always worth it.

    Plus all these engine upgrades are a good sign that EP3 is going to look awesome when it's ready.

    I already am not liking the sound of it simply because it's falling back upon DotA's original mapstyle. One thing I didn't like about it was the lack in variety in the gameplay since it was just 1 straight lined up map. And denying just sounds awful, haven't tried a DotA game with it but it sounds more like an open opportunity to grief rather than a gameplay tactic. Things like this are why I liked LoL much more than DotA.

    Not only that but the fact they're probably making this a game you buy rather than free to play and the fact that this game is getting a graphics kick-up, meaning my crappy comp most likely won't run it. Too many reasons not to play this.

    A RTS game in Source?

    This is going to be laggy if they don't optimize the engine first.
    You're right. Source, an engine misunderstood and criticised for not updating to today's high standard and in the process making it a resource guzzling bitch, needs to be optimised.

    Thanks for your input.

    And gaming graphics in general, if it was good enough to make that type of fluid rendering possible in real-time on computers they would get awards for it.

    I'm not a fan of strategy games that are multiplayer only, but I'm sure the game will be decent.

    I was turned away from these types of games when I watched a friend play HoN. The learning curve looks enormous, I don't want games to feel like a job. I want to have fun with them.

    I feel the same way, at least when it comes to dota. I expect Valve will follow their tradition of guiding the player through the learning process, plus they have confirmed a "coach" feature which will pair you (new guy) up with a friendly player/teacher (pro). We'll see...

    You can't imagine how much fun I had with my DoTA and HoN days, especially with some friends or my brother.

    It sure has a huge learning curve but most RTS/RPG online games do, the problem is the community which is absolute shit in both games, that's why most people hate it.

    What's already known is that IceFrog did not created DOTA Allstars alone, but he made the biggest part of it. All of the actual gameplay wouldn't be like it is without him.
    Erik leads the project.
    Erik Johnson
    Project Manager
    duh
    As for him being a dumbass, I'll totally believe someone who created a Blogger today, right after the game was announced, right ?

    Yeah because Erik Johnson has anything to do with the original mod. He doesn't, he's the project manager because Valve don't just hire people and leave them to do everything with no help at all.

    Why is Icefrog afraid to give out his name?
    Are there any haters for DotA? Not quite sure due to my not playing any RPG type game at all.

    As for me, I am going to wait and see how it goes before thinking about buying it.
