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 unique strategy game and is an upgrade to 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 usually played by 10 players (5 for each team).
You start the game by picking your main hero. Intelligence heroes, agility heroes, and strength heroes are the three main categories of DotA 2 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.
Just like chess, the better your opponents are, the harder 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.
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.
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.
No one can deny the fact that Defense of the Ancients 2 is one if not the most hottest 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.
