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

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.
