    If this happens to be true I'll have to see and then decide to play it or not, assuming that it is DotA. We seem to get these DotA's a bit too fast, original DoTA ---> HoN----> LoL----> This?

    League of Legends is created from those people that created DoTA, HoN just some other DoTA game.

    yea iv been playing ALOT of leauge of legends recently and i got to say taking away denies was a good idea made the game more face passed aswell as keeping your money after you die dont have to sit there waiting for 1hr and 30min for the game to end. I hope this is for a good price or even free since it valve i wont mind spending any amount of money they always deliver maybe not always on time >_>

    I'm still curious to know who actually legally owns the rights to the name Defense of the Ancients. I started playing back when it was developed by Eul's, and Guinsoo gets 100 percent credit for the recipe system. Icefrog had so little impact on any actual innovation with the map, it's ironic his name is the one associated with the map. It will be interesting to see if they run with the name DotA, and how Blizzard and/or others respond to that if they do. I think there will be some inevitable legal hoopla crop up if they do.
