Never even heard of it. Had to check the wiki as the original isn't on Steam: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_of_the_Ancients

Me neither. This article really could have used a little blurb to explain what the game is, or at least what the acronym stands for.

Go read about it? I supposed they should have a little blurb explaining what type of game BF3 is as well.

I don't think valve is screwing themselves by taking the time to make a good game. I don't particularly care about LoL all new map (singular)

Well out of what I've seen in the tournament so far, can't say I'm impressed.
At this time it actually looks bland and unpolished. Doesn't even come close to Heroes of Newerth.

It would at least be nice to know what the acronym stands for in the body of the article. They didn't call Modern Warfare 3 "MW3". Or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive "CS:GO". Just calling it Defence of the Ancients once would have been enough.

This trend of calling games by the initials is very annoying if you don't game often and don't have hours a week to spend reading about all the new games.

The original game was called Defense of the Ancients (abbreviated to DotA). However, this new game is actually called Dota 2 as it is what the original game was called by the players more than anything, Icefrog has stated this explicitly.

It's not like dota is new or anything. If you were really interested in it you would be playing one of the three current dota incarnations.
