    Wasn't there already a 5v5 option for rbgs ( and even 15v15) at some point, but they scrapped it? Eitherway, we already got 5v5....in arenas.

Blizzard did say that they would make a DotA style BG, plus - I'm pretty sure they own the trademark on the acronym DotA - so that could either be a means of rubbing that in, or securing the patent that they are still using it - or just because they can.

    Ultimately it's a proven map / game format though - and it can be very fun - I'd be interested to see how it works out in WoW. My guess is there would be problems though. You see, in DotA style games, the reason to split up (2/1/2 or 1/1/1/2 splits) is so you all maximize your early gold and experience to get gear, to do more damage / have more health / etc. In a WoW version, we're already max level - and we already have our gear - so there is no reason to split like that, we would just turret rush mid or w/e. In fact, I'd bet solving that strategic conflict is why the BG style got scrapped in early MoP beta when they mentioned it.
    It sounds great in theory but has a lot of draw backs in practice. Do you honestly think people would enjoy being scaled back, losing the advantage they worked for when it comes to gear, losing attributes, possibly skill and other stuff? I think things such as Sota have proven they don't, Occulus and Malygos just showed how much people really disliked that.

    And yes Dota is a proven map/format, but so is command and conquer and that wouldn't work here, would it?

    Unless it is entered into the RBG rotation. Also you'd be forced to run it 100th times at least.

    Half of dota is about farming items. This would be like playing dota with a decked out hero, so only the final phase of the game would really matter.

    That is, of course, assuming Blizzard don't add dota mechanics like gold and temporary items. That would be highly interesting.

    Anyone remember ENFO from Warcraft 3? That would make a good scenario.

    This BG is going to be flooded with the classes that can burst 1v1-2 and so many specs are going to get shafted by it.

    This is going to be sooo fun, I can see it now... Might as well just start playing Frost Mage/Warrior, even after the nerfs they're still going to be ridiculous in this style of BG.

    I agree, the point of my post is exactly that they scrapped it because it's an unsolved problem. That without gearing up, people would just turret rush mid and ignore laning phases - dota wouldn't work in wow. Helps to read posts before you respond ;p

    I did but I might have misread what you meant, we usually disagree so I just assumed wo do disagree on this one aswell. How about you just change your opinion so I was right?

    They did talk about having scenarios with more than 3 people. If this doesn't end up as a BG, it could very well become one of those scenarios.

    What I see now in the new video, and what you will see soon, will make you really believe that this is something really DoTA Like.

    Video will be up in 160min :P http://youtu.be/t8HcLfZx8vY
