Defense of the Ancients or DotA is an offshoot of RTS games where players use units known as heroes.

Comment: DOTA or Defense of the Ancients ( D O T A ) was only a map for Warcraft in it’s time. Who would’ve guessed that it will turn into a whole game years later. I loved playing this map. There were around 100-110 characters called Heroes if I remember correctly and each of them had it’s own unique skills. This was one of the most played maps few years back. I loved it and rate it 9/10. πŸ™‚

Comment: Defense of the Ancients (Dota) Hmmm what can I say about this game??? Oh I can say that this is the best game i played in past.. I know as a kid (8 yrs old i think) i was going to the game room just for this game. Yes, you had to have Warcraft III with this cause it was offshoot.. But again playing versus bots or anything made my day hapier. Only thing that I would consider that it was a bit hard for me to buy some items in the shop, but again i was just starting so I couldn’t really know that. First hero that I played was Sven. Reason: He was so badass and good looking so i had to try him. Funny thing is that i was always buying that RING, that gives you aura or something for health regen.. I didn’t really knew much, but i coouldn’t stop to play the game either. When I started playing Centaur Warchief i started to improve my skill in the game. I played him really tanky, and his passive (Thorns) i guess it was called was really best passive in the game. So then i played all champions, Necromancer, Brood Mother, Enigma etc.
Another good expansion is Frozen Throne, really good looking, and when i started playing World of Warcraft i realized that the frozen throne character (Arthas) was connected with the Lich King expansion. I was like wow, they are making the story of game that was released, not sure exactly but i think it’s about 2003. The whole goddamn story was so good looking that every expansion of WoW was making it so perfect and you just had to play the game. But let’s get back to the DotA. The sound effects, the gameplay, was just amazing. I really can’t say anything else about this game, cause it’s really amazing, and who didn’t played this game, i just think that he missed something huge.. Just the jungle creeps, the Roshan buff (Aegis of Immortality) gaved you the full control of the game… I was like wowing when i saw someone was killing the roshan, but later i was like, meh let’s kill that creep.
So the setup of the game is simple 2-1-2 or 1-1-1-2 and there were a lot’s of heroes who can handle the pressure on top, as same as in jungle. Typical hero for the jungle is Ursa, another badass hero. I remember back there that he was the only that could kill roshan, as soon as he finish the item called (Vladimir’s something)… Really so much heroes you can learn about, so much time to even learn about the game but again that is golden for sure.
And just to finish about my opinion of 5-6 spell casters like Invoker or Shadow Fiend. Well I played Invoker, and I can say that it’s really tough to control with him, reason is because the combination of spell are hard to catch. You really need to be quick to click i don’t know like R and then E-E-E , then again Q-Q-W and another. Really hard experience with him, so i really stopped playing him. Shadow Fiend in fact doesn’t have some huge combination, and I think it’s easy to control him. And yeah, Ancient Protector and Tiny, my favourite heroes of all time. Watching Tiny growing into huge rock, and Protector clubbing guys , made the game even more better.

That was my opinion of the game. I will rate 10/10 and I will always remember her as a game of my childhood.

Comment: Defense of the Ancients (DotA) is mother of all MOBAs. Considering it’s just map for Warcraft 3, this was HUGE prior to LoL. Characters are called Heroes, there are 112 different ones with unique spells. I rate this game 9/10

Comment: Defense of the Ancients or more popular as DOTA is a multiplayer battle arena mode or MOBA.
Dota was a mode for the popular strategy game Warcraft 3. The point in this game is to destroy
the enemy base, enemy Ancient. But its not so easy. The Ancient is defending by a team with
five players (champions or heroes) on each side + creeps and giant towers. The champions are
using different abilities or skills to protect it. This game mode was really popular world wide.

Lets talk about details.
Dota is a multiplayer online game. Two teams fighting each other, five man on each side.
Sentinel on the bottom side of the map, Scourge on the top side of the map. Teams need to
defend the base and try to destroy the enemy base. Each player is controlling one hero or
champion. Every champion is different and got different skills. At begin you can pick one
of the 120 champions. Every champ got 4 different skills. They can be passive or active
and one special ultimate skill. They are three kind of champions.
Strength champions, they are mostly big tanks with lot of health and some crowd control skills.
Agility champions, they are mostly fast champions and are mostly the carries in the game with low health.
Mage champs, are casters with lot of active spells that do much damage to the enemy but dont have much health.
So before a game starts you need to pick smart choise, its a team game so you need to pick the best
combination from the 120 champions. Its really hard to play this alone vs five other enemies.
You need your team to win. Team play is really important in Dota. The game starts when
the first creeps attack the enemy lanes. They are 4 lanes on the field. Top, Middle, Bottom and Forest.
Three lanes are attacked whole time by the enemy creeps and in forest you got neutral camps.
After you kill an enemy creep you gain experience point ( you need it for leveling up, and
leveling your skills ) and when you make the killing blow you get gold. For gold you can
buy item that you need to be strong to defeat the enemy base. You need to combine some
of the basics item to get stronger weapons and some items need recipes. You can earn gold by killing
the neutral camps too, or destroying turrets or killing the enemy champions. You gain a small
amount of gold every second. But you need to care, every time you die you lose something from
your gold. So be smart and buy items when you got enough gold. Buy items that you need, it
depend on hero what are you playing. By the way dont forget to deny your minions and towers.
For every denied creep or tower the enemy dont get any god, and that is advantage for you and your team.
When you and your team earn lot of gold it will be really easy to defeat the enemy lanes.

Pos: Its a multiplayer game and lot of fun.
Game duration is not so long, so you dont need to spend much time playing a single game.
Graphic is nice, music is cool.

Counter: When you want to become a really good player you need to play with each champ some games
to understand them. You need time to learn how to positioning in team fights, how to last hit and what
items you need to buy for your champion.

Its really cool game, its the mother of MOBAS. I rate this game 10/10.Played it active maybe 2 years.

Comment: My opinion is that this is probably one of the best moba games ever. Dota 2 may be better but I like this version more, beacuse it is harder to play and only most skilled players can play it. This is one great game πŸ˜€

Comment: Dota is one really great game,i played it about 2 years and i really enjoyed the time i playing. Lets start my second review:

Dota is the moba game,looks like League of Legends,but i like Dota graphic more.

Roles: Top- this role is great role,there tanks go or some assasins.
Mid- There go mage champios like Invoker or Puck.
Jungle-there champions go in wood and gank(come to other lanes and take kills).
Bot lane- bot is for ADC (champion who shoot) and support who carry about him

More than 100 heroes are in dota here is some my favorite:
Ulfsaar- hee go top,can be jungle also,he is very good damage/tank can burst ADC fast.
Gondar-i play gondar jungle because he have stealth and its very uselful for ganks.
Barathrum- he is very good champion ,he can charge to enemys fast and he got 2 annoying stuns.

Game: Map is like League of Legends(towers on two sides,jungle,Roshan ,dragon,and river buffs).
You need to think when you play,you can combine abilities doing combos and help other teammates.Teamwork is the most important thing in this game,like in League of Legends!
Destroy enemy towers,kill the enemies,than kill base.Bot lane should play def and wait for jungler,mid should play aggresive and take kills like top,only top must take towers.
Sentinels are good side ,they are trees ,i like this side more than Scrouge ,thats bad side and there are ghouls.
About heroes, there is tank heroes(they have a lot of armor and hp) ,agility (they are assasins and fast killers),mage(the mages mostly have burst,that is a lot of damage in second,but there is other mages like Dazzle, they poke and deal fast damage),supports(this champions have abilities to save their teammates).In game you need to kill creeps and earn experience ,than you got level and money. You need to last hit creep to get gold from him,also you can kill your creep when he got very low hp,when you destroy last tower than coming big creeps.When you got level 6 you got ultimate ability.The point of game to destroy Frozen Throne if you are the Senetel or Tree of Life if you are Scrouge.You can also play a lot of mods in dota ,normal mode is AP this mode is when you can pick all champions or SD this mode is when you chose your lane ,there is also mode where you can unlimited drop abilities without cd(calldown).Roshan-this is like baron in League of Legends ,when you kill him you got one item,this item give you if you die you can revive ,really useful and this can bring you victory.
Graphic are old a bit, but i still like them.Sounds are amazing ,and there is a lot of abilities to know and learn.One problem is that you can’t use them on keyboard,i mean you can but its hard a lot,its different letter for each champion.
Gameplay are fantastic,i wrote it up.

Dota is one really great game,i really enjoyed playing it and i will recommend to all to play this game,you will enjoy a lot :). 10/10

Comment: Dota (Defense of the Ancients) is one old MOBA game but it’s still popular.
The first version of DOTA was released in 2003 by Eul.

It’s a classic moba game with 3 lanes.
TOP/MID/BOT also you can go in wood.
The greatest thing in this game is that because you don’t need to buy champions like in (league of legends,Smite…)
you have them all free.
I played dota on garena, on this program you can also play counter strike, age of empires and other online multiplayer game.

let’s back to heroes.
there is 112 heroes in Dota.
There is three categories of the heroes.
Strength (they are melee tanks,you play them on Top and they are fighters,also with some of them you can play jungle)
Agility (they are AD range,you play them on Bot and sometimes on Mid and on Mid they are melee assassins)
Intelligence (they are Mid and supports based on magic damage and range champions)

The map in DOTA is based on fight between two sides.
The one of them are calling sentinel (This is good natural side).
And another one scourge (they are undead side)

You can practice with bots which using different level
(easy,normal and inside).You can play with them and offline.

Before you start playing Host (the guy who created game) need to chose which mod you will play.
it can be AP (all pick) in this mode everyone can play what ever they want.
AR (all random) it this mode players will get random heroes. (you can also pay 200 golds to “RePick” get another random hero but you can do it just once and on start)
SD (single draft) in this mode it will random chose you one strength,agility and intelligence hero and you need to chose between them what one will you play.
These peoples usually playing there is also other modes.

On the start of the game you choosing hero and you start with 825 (if you are playing 5vs5)
You buy items and go on your lane.
You earn gold by killing creeps and heroes.
Their maximum level is 25, you getting experience by killing creeps and heroes.
every lane have towers which defense and protect lanes by minions.
There is also “Roshan” he is the strongest mob in jungle
He is really hard to kill alone, but when you kill him he will drop item called “immortality” when you pick this item you will be able you reborn when you get killed.
When your creeps destroy.
The point of game like in every moba is to destroy enemy base or enemy main object. In this situation for sentinels this is “Tree of life” and for scourge “Frozen throne”.
When you destroy it you won the game.

In my opinion DOTA is nice game with very good gameplay, maybe a little old graphic, but i still love it.
There is also DOTA2, it’s same game but graphic is changed to better.

So my rate for DOTA is 9/10.

Comment: Like I said before dota is very powerfull game, I mean dota it’s cool old game and it’s for those players who don’t have good computer and good configurations. Graphic is alright, and the most thing in game that is higly difficult. Few of player can manage to call herself a professional player of dota. I would like to recommend this game, because I can guaraante you that with this game you will have a lot of funn and joe. I know that is not good as Dota 2 but it’s with reason first dota, even tho these two aren’t that different, so like I said I higly recommend this game and vote 10. Good luck and start playing you wont regreat.

Comment: DotA (Defending of the Ancients) is a MOBA mod which was published in a Warcarft 3: Reign of Chaos and its expansion The Frozen Throne. This is the mod that started it all, and the mod where it all began : all MOBAs started their way on the first DotA map.
I’ll start with the DotA basics so you can spot the similarities with its modern ancestors DotA 2 & LoL. So DotA is a mod designed for 2 to 10 players where the goal of every round is to destroy the opposing team Ancient, which is guarded by 3 towers on every lane. After you destroy the towers on the lane, you have the ability to destroy the enemy β€˜nexus’ after which your team spawns bigger minions (sounds familiar!?). The teams in DotA are called the Sentinel and the Scourge, the names which I really much adored because DotA was the first MOBA I played and get familiar with online gaming.
In DotA, players can pick between 120 heroes (yes heroes, not champions) in which every single one of them has its unique abilities. It is really important to pick a strong combo, and strong heroes because DotA is the game where only a team can win, not one players. Its really hard to carry in DotA because the whole team needs to be fed in orded to secure the win for your Sentinels/Scourge. In DotA there are 4 moderations on the way heroes are picked: -rd (random draft: something similar to ranked picks in LoL, 1-2-2-1, etc) ; -ap (all pick where you can pick any hero you want from the tavern) ; -ar (all random which means everyone gets a random hero) ; -sd (single draft where you pick from 3 heroes – one intelligence hero, agility hero & strength hero). Also you can add -em to the mentioned mods which means that you’ll be playing it easy mod, with more gold earning every minute, creeps giving more gold and experience. And yes, I forgot to mention that everything is based on last-hitting creeps which give you extra gold. Of course, there is also a part of the map which is equivalent to the jungle in LoL. Another thing I forgot to mention is that heroes in DotA are firstly split into two categories: melee and the ones with ranged attack. The second categorization is the one where heroes are called: Intelligence heroes (casters, have very powerful magic-based abilities) ; Agility (carry-like heroes, with lots of attack damage bursts, etc ); Strength (the name itself says it all, the heroes that are tanks and the ones that take all the shots without crying).
To sum up a bit, players need to recognize and have respect for this game because if DotA wasn’t created back in 2003, other DotA-based games such as most popular game LoL wouldn’t exist in the way that exists today. I will never regret the thousands of hours spent playing this game because I’ve enjoyed it and I’ve learned a lot about MOBAs and it helped me understand a lot of similar games. I have to rate Defense of the Ancients with the highest rate because you gotta love it.

Comment: First, my rating: 9.5
Multiplayer 10/10
Gameplay 10/10
Graphics 9/10
Sound 9/10

DotA, dota is not a game dota is a map. The real name of the game is WarCraft 3. Warcraft is a strategy game, making units sending them to battle, defending your castle, attacking castles and many more. I think that dota cant be played without expansion warcraft 3 Frozen Throne. There comes the magic. In this game you can download a map from internet and play it eather with computers or with friends. Dota is a map, the real name is Defence of the Acients. In this game the poit is to pick your role, pick a champion, pick your lane, and go fight. There are 3 + 1 lane. Top, mid, bot and jungle. On mid always goes a mage, on bot an adc and a support, on top its goes a tank or a fighter, and in jungle tank or a fighter it depends how you agree with your teammates. There are around 100 champions to pick, there are 2 sides for each side is another champion. Scourge and sentinel. I always call them sentinel good, and scourge bad. Sentinels are the humans and night elfs, in scourge are orcs and undeads. You can pay to play dota online without downloading any programs, or you dont need to pay, you only need to download garena and start playing. Garena is a program that connects people together and allows them to play together. The goal in this game is to destroy the enemys main building its in their base.

Comment: 1)DOTA (Defence Of The Ancients) is a great MOBA game that has 3 lanes and a jungle area between them.The objective of the game is to destroy the enemy base and its core.

2)Towers:Each lane is protected by 3 towers and 1 inhibitor after that. When a team destroys a tower they get a global gold bonus. When a team destroys and inhibitor their minons on that lane become stronger.
3)Minons: Minons are little creatures that spawn every 30 sec. wWhen a player kills them he gets some gold. Minons are useful because that turrets prioritize them over you so you can take them down.

4)Jungle: There are lots of different jungle camps in the game. Upon killing each one you will get a gold bonus. Some jungle camps when killed grant a gold bonus not just for you but for the entire team. Aditionaly for some jungle camps you will get a buff that increases your stats. Some even increase the stats of your entire team.

5)Champions (Heroes): There are many champions to chose from in the game. Each has a specific skill set that has 3 regular abilities and 1 ultimate ability. Those abilities are different for each champion. Champions also have different roles to fit the team better.

6)DOTA is an amazing game and one of the best MOBAs out there! πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚

Comment: I have played Dota for about 2 years , but i didn’t realise that some others game are going on better..
I thought i could maybe start some other MOBA games and i saw that new MOBA games are better.. πŸ™‚
Graphic is not the best , this is interesting game , and for sure teamplay game , but i don’t like in this game cause if u play it too much you will get bored and i don’t think so that i will start it again cause im playing LOL , SMITE and some other game πŸ™‚
But in my 2 years of playing i really had some good experience with some other players , u can’t compere LOL and DOTA , really 90% less ragers in DOTA and i liked that when i started LOL .. And kinda i couldn’t find myself in LOL on start , cause i didn’t had experience with ragers that much .. πŸ™‚
It’s old game and i will remember it for sure , she got 2 years of my life on good way πŸ™‚
If u didn’t tryied it , you should for sure , if u play LOL start it and u will be really relaxed and u will not think about ragers πŸ™‚ That’s it πŸ™‚

Comment: I have 5 years experience in Dota so i’m gonna share it with you.

First of all i rated it 7 only because it’s really “outdated” now, League of Legends, Dota2, Hon and more MOBA genre games are more “advanced” than the classic “Dota” from where the MOBA itself began. Otherwise in the time i played i would have given it 10/10 !

Dota was one of my first games, if not first it’s Warcraft3 map basically but it gained so much fame that it became more played than wr3 itself hh’
There were tons of players, teams, championships and more.
It’s played online through “Garena” later “GarenaPlus” which is something like steam let’s say. You make account and you can play various games but Dota was by far most played.
The garena/dota was divided in “servers” like Europe,China,Mexico,Bulgaria, Turkey and each had many rooms, for example Europe had around 300 rooms..for each country (few for 1 country if there are many players) and “Europe rooms” around Europe 1/2/3 etc.
It’s not Dota related but there are “RPG” maps, you can try them out they are really fun !

I think you know this but in any case:
The objective of the scenario is for each team to destroy the opponents’ Ancient, heavily guarded structures at opposing corners of the map. Players use powerful units known as heroes, and are assisted by allied heroes and AI-controlled fighters(creeps). As in role-playing games, players level up their heroes and use gold to buy equipment during the mission.

It was fun while it lasted! I don’t regret for the thousands of hours spent on this game/map, had so much fun, it was great experience!

Have a nice day,

  1. Dota is prequel to DotA 2 expansion which is very good moba….As in other mobas you choose characters and play as them, you kill minions to get gold and later kill players to win the game…DotA has some lower graphics than DotA 2 but the game is much funnier to me than DotA 2 cuz i played DotA as a kid and had good memories on it…Pretty much recommend this game still is very enjoyable

  2. Dota is mod that started as World of warcraft : The frozen throne and was one of the played mods at that time.It introduced the moba genre and was so popular then the actual warcraft game itself.

  3. DOTA or Defense of the Ancients is a MOBA game that has quite stood the test of time. The unique characters, skills, gameplay is really something to keep coming back on. Being supported by the vast community of DOTA gamers, this game will last the ages as more heroes are updated. A few of the heroes can be somehow unbalanced but this usually handled through bans in professional tourneys. The graphics can be a bit old compared to its consequent game DOTA 2 but it was no joke during its reign in the early 2000’s. This is game surely worth a try.

  5. Defense Of The Ancients : Game Review

    Defense of the Ancients is the 1st version of the popular game Defense of the Ancients 2 on steam. It was once at the pinnacle of M. O. B. A. s which took the time of many plauers young and old. It was a very addicting game that offered satisfaction and fun in many ways. Other players played it as a M. O. B. A. And fought with each other, improving their skills and finally unleashing their intellect regaeding the game so far. If played as a M. O. B. A., it requires strategical and critical thinking. Fast reflexes and attentive eyes as well. Alertness and being wise in decision making is the key to winning games. The mechanics involve gaining gold, which you need to “last hit” an enemy “creep” or a neutral creep for gold. Gold is important. It is used to buy items that will boost your stat and help you in game. These items have different uses as well, mainly the passive effect, and the active effect. Some active effects are – Dagon’s purge, hex. Etc. Hex makes the enemy a chicken or a frog or a fish or a pig depending on RNG for a short amoint of time which counts as a disable. The dagon instantly cuts down an enemy’s health point when used to them. But it has cool down time and mana cost. So use it only when its needed for securing a clean kill.
    Moving on, the passive ability grants you a benefit anytime, like auras. The shiva’s guard aura grants you and your tem mates / allies to have additional armor whenever they are close to you (or to whomever is wearing a shiva’s guard)
    Theres also the radiance, which afflicts the enemies in range a loss in the percentage of landing a hit succesfully to you and your allies/ team mates.

    Bit as for me, i did not play it heavily as a M. O. B. A. im fact, i enjoyed playing the campaign / the story one. The lore of the heroes, their sad and amazing stories. Victories and also defeat.

    There’s the good campaign, and the bad campaign. But i recommend ypu to play it both. Its fun. Like how Mortred kept on tracking the supposed to be “villain” Illidan. Which in fact wass trying to save the world from the potential evil that is rising. Namely “Abaddon” who wanted to claim the Frozen throne. Mortred chased the demonic Illidan down and lost her sisters in the process. Illidan, trying to chase for the once holy “Omniknight” now a melancholic, cold hearted “Abaddon”.

    Illidan tried but failed to defeat the ever strong “Abaddon” and claimed the throne .

    Mortred’s works were in vain and hatred grew upon her. Vengeance filled her heart and so on and so forth (i dont wanna spoil everythingie)

    Well basically. What im saying is. I get more fun on stories and adventures rather than mindlessy fighting repeatedly in a map full of other players (or artificial intelligent bots) and win and witness the repetitive conclusoon / ending all over again.

    Well anyways, the game is by far awesome. Even though it’s graphics are outdated now, its still classic and fun to play. I liked it

    I will give it a thumbs uppy~
    And a rate of 5/5 !!

  6. DOTA is the father, or mother, of the new MOBA style games that we are used to watch on streams. The game is so good, the graphics are not that good but the gameplay is epic. If you are looking for a good strategy game to play with friends, I recommend you this one!

  7. It is no doubt one of the most-defining games of the MOBA genre, so great that it even generated a standalone sequel by the name DotA 2. Considering that it was more of an additional add-on game than it was its own game, since you had to have Warcraft III, I think that’s the most impressive part about DotA. And the fact that this game was released around 2003 (six years before League) before the MOBA genre even exploded makes it even more of a marvel. The MOBA genre might not even around, if DotA didn’t exist. However, I do think DotA’s sequel DotA 2 is more refined than DotA since it’s more relevant (it’s the game people are playing competitively) and modern (newer engine, newer graphics). Overall, I’d give this game a 4.75/5.
