Defense of the Ancients (Warcraft III Custom Map) most famous developer Icefrog has been hired by Valve to create DOTA2. It may not be named Defense of the Ancients, as everything created in the WC3 map editor is Blizzard property and thus it's DOTA2 with no "acronym" attached to it.

You must be a console player, not very familiar with PC gaming, as this game goes across, from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos to StarCraft II, played by millions, most likely numbers comparable to World of Warcraft across the world.

It's the combination of Hero Arena & Aeon of Strife(AoS) custom maps and the bringer of a new genre to the table which Heroes of Newerth, League of Legends and others are a part of.

Yes, I am a console gamer. I used to game on my PC way back in the day grew tired of installation issues, glitches, and upgrading my computer whenever it became obsolete. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Man I really hope this game is good. I want DotA 2 too destroy League of Legends. I played LoL it really was a fun game, but the community is horrible, and the server are eve worse. I hate how riot games don't even pay attention to the people at all.

I personally never had troubles with the servers. I have seen people get kicked out, but I've never even had a hint of lag when I play.

Silly Valve this is misleading as Turtle rock studios made left 4 dead and vale made left 4 dead 2 and somewhat helped on part 1. Its the reason for bringing the original maps to l4d2 to erase application existance of l4d2 as Turtle Rock is now signed to THQ.

When L4D was released, Turtle Rock was part of Valve.
