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. A lot of people are becoming more and more engaged playing this unique game and DotA 2 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 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 by 10 players (5 for each team).

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 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. There are also a lot of players in Sweden and other Northern European nations who are hooked in playing this massive online game. Sadly DotA 2 was not very popular in North America, this is why very few tournaments are held here and most of the teams decided to disband.

A big part of DotA 2’s success is because of it’s amazing map. The creator of this map is Steve Freak but he later on passed the torch to Ice Frog (game developer). Although this is true, DotA 2 owes a huge chunk of their success to this man.

Despite the fact that DotA 2 has no official support, multiple updates are still being made every now and then. This is possible because of the players/ users from all over the world, they show their support by posting their opinions and suggestions when it comes to 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 has the potential to be the best online game in history and if you have yet to try it, you are missing out on the fun.
