Defense of the Ancients or DotA 2 is definitely one of the most well-known online games today. This online game is becoming more and more popular all over the globe and is not showing any signs of slowing down. Believe it or not, DotA 2 has been the headline for a lot of entertainment news for the past 5 years. In this article, we will be discussing more about this online game and why a lot of people are hooked playing it.

DotA 2 is a diverse strategy game that is a mod of the ever popular Warcraft 3. The main goal of this game is to win the war by taking over the enemy team’s Ancient while you are protecting your own. The game is best played with 10 players, 5 for team dire and 5 for team radiant.

The game starts as soon as you pick the hero you want to play. Intelligence heroes, agility heroes, and strength heroes are the three main categories of DotA 2 heroes. As the game progresses, you will be required to earn gold and experience and these are used to make your hero stronger.

DotA 2 can be compared to the game of chess, the better your opponents are, the more challenging the game becomes. This is why so many tournaments have been held during the past couple of years.

Majority of DotA 2 players are from Asia. Most of the players in Asia live in Thailand and the Philippines. Players from Sweden and other Northern European nations also spend a lot of their time playing DotA 2. Since DotA 2 did not make a lot of noise in North America, a lot of teams disbanded and very few tournaments were held in this country.

The map of DotA 2 is a very big reason why this game is very successful until today. 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.

A lot of updates are still being made despite the fact that DotA 2 has no official support. If you are wondering how this is possible, it is because dedicated users/ players from all over the globe post their opinions and suggestions regarding hero and item changes.

I think every gamer will agree with me when I say that Defense of the Ancients is one if not the most popular topic in gaming news today. This game is definitely one of the best games out there and if you have yet to try it, you are missing out on a lot of fun.
