He questioned my credibility, while, having none of his own. Fanboyed Valve like a 12year old girl. Made an account just to comment, more than likely because he is already banned.
Yeah... totally on me.
I can take a good guess on who the account belongs too. ^^^^^
Are you O.K.? Do you need a hug?
On topic, I will definitely be playing the shit out of this game. I just find it humorous they, Blizzard, had the key it's pocket. Had the market cornered, AGAIN. I love the schadenfreude.

I gave my experience with early stages of DOTA:TFT. Simply said, that the game, DOTA2, won't garnish as much of a following as LoL. Mainly because LoL is the market. I also praised the game in the same breath, and gave no critique. LoL is like WoW in comparison, already gave my reasons and I stand by it.
You can go ahead and throw your 2 cents in, I just make more money that way.
There's something darkly amusing about the sequence of events that just happened with a mod coming in to quell a ridiculous argument followed by a random spammer advertising a vehicle won by "Uncle Zachary".
I've been awake for way too long.
Anyway, while Heroes of the Storm would have been a pretty janky name for the next expansion, I figured it would have made a decent title for Blizzard's new ARTS or whatever it's going to wind up being. I wonder if they're going to keep the DOTA style stuff down to the letter, give it a few twists here and there like Smite and Dawngate, or try to mix things up entirely and craft something that doesn't really fig snugly into most of the usual standards.
I need to comment in a different thread with a picture, but it wont let me until i post a few times elsewhere. But, i cant post more than one reply to anything, within 30 seconds. I just want Blizzcon tickets, i mean really. The hoops.
This is one project they should cancel, it is not going to be a money maker for them.
Where is your evidence that they begged Blizzard? Show me, if you can't then you've got jack all for credibility. Oh wait you didn't provide any proof and expect people to believe you blindly. Amazing.. yes and I was there inside the shuttle for the moon landing! I don't have any evidence for this but you must believe me! /sGuinsoo and later Icefrog, both BEGGED. BEGGED, Blizzard to give official support of the game. They laughed! Laughed, at Guinsoo. I remember later when Gunisoo quit having anything to do with DOTA, and started on the "client" he called it, which would later be called, you guessed it, League of Legends. I was in the chat room, when everyone was saying "goodbyes" to him even though he officially quit off the screen.
Blizzard is a for-profit company. They seek to make money. They have seen how popular these types of games can be and it is only natural that they'd incline themselves towards what could be one of the their last opportunities to break into the market.Now Blizzard wants part of the pie. Sorry, but League is the WoW of MOBAs. While, DOTA is a good game, it just won't drag as many people around like League has and will. Egg in the eye, Blizzard. Egg in the eye.
You seem to have soiled yourself. Allow me to sincerely apologise for having a different opinion than to your own. Call me a nerd and a fanboy if you will but there are few gaming companies out there with the experience and loyal fanbase of Valve's (Blizzard is one exception).
I talked about:
- Dota 2 having 6.5 million active players (not including WC3: DotA players)
Throw in all the other non-LoL DotA-style games and that's a good 10 million or so players in the genre who aren't playing LoL. LoL =/= the market.
- It's a more solid title with better production quality, more depth and more diversity within the gameplay.
My opinion and shared by a lot of LoL players too.
- It's proven its longevity while LoL is more of a fad...
DotA-Allstars is still going strong in the form of Dota 2 after 10 years of existence. The latter half is controversial, yes, but that's my opinion based upon my experience with it.
- ...poorly balanced and the company (Riot) treats a good portion of its players like shit and handles the game disgustingly badly...
Again this is my observation and based upon the general dissatisfaction of a lot of its gameplay balance tweaks (especially amongst pros) and upon their crappy client, poor server stability across multiple regions, shoddy customer support amongst other things.
- Valve is a well-respected company with 50 million + active users on its Steam platform and has long valued custom mod support.
Am I wrong?

I giggled. A lot.

If they ever get their MoBa out, sure, they could feasibly balance it. But their track record of balancing with WoW, Diablo 3, Starcraft 2..... I won't hold my breath. Bliz is making this game because they see LoL turning into an epic cash cow that rivals WoW at its peak.
Funny thing is that Blizzard had the chance to be in the position LoL is currently in and they laughed at the idea. Oh well. Their loss, and it is too late to get in now.
