Entertainment News: Why Is Defense Of the Ancients 2 Very Popular?
One of the most popular online games today is without a doubt, Defense of the Ancients 2 or DotA 2. This game is taking the world by storm and is not showing any signs of slowing down. This has been the topic of of many entertainment news for the past 5 years. In this article, we will be talking more about DotA 2 and why this game is taking over the entertainment industry.
DotA 2 is a diverse strategy game that is a mod of the ever popular Warcraft 3. The objective of the game is to destroy the opposing team’s Ancient while protecting your own. The game is usually played 5 vs 5 (5 for team dire and 5 for team radiant).
The game starts as soon as you pick the hero you want to play. 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 have the chance to earn experience and gold in order to buy items and upgrade your chosen hero.
DotA 2 is very similar to chess, the better your opponent is, the more competitive and difficult the game becomes. This resulted to a lot of tournaments for the past years.
Majority of the population of DotA 2 players are Asians. 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.
One big reason why DotA 2 is very successful today is because of it’s map This map was first created by the very talented Steve Freak but he later on passed the responsibility to Ice Frog (game developer). Even if this is the case, he is a big reason why DotA is very successful until today.
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 undoubtedly one of the greatest games created and if you have yet to play it, you should give it a shot soon.
