DotA 2 is a strategy game that is based on Warcraft 3. The objective of DotA 2 is to beat the enemy team by destroying their Ancient while protecting your own. The game is usually played by 10 players (5 for each team).
You start the game by picking your main hero. The three main categories of hero you will have to choose from are intelligence heroes, strength heroes, and agility heroes. As the game progresses, you will be earning experience and gold and you will use these to upgrade your hero.
Just like chess, the better your opponents are, the harder the game becomes. This is the reason why a lot of tournaments from all over the globe have been made.
Majority of DotA 2 players are from Asia. Two of the most popular countries in Asia that plays DotA 2 are Thailand and the Philippines. This game is also very popular in Sweden and other Northern European nations. Sadly DotA 2 was not very popular in North America, this is why very few tournaments are held here and most of the teams decided to disband.
One big reason why DotA 2 is very successful today is because of it’s map The creator of this map is Steve Freak but he later on passed the torch to Ice Frog (game developer). Even if this is true, he is still an icon and a key creator of DotA 2.
Despite the fact that DotA 2 has no official support, multiple updates are still being made every now and then. This is possible because of the players/ users from all over the world, they show their support by posting their opinions and suggestions when it comes to hero and item changes.
