Entertainment News: Why Is Defense Of the Ancients 2 Very Popular?
Out of all the online games that were released in the past, Defense of the Ancients 2 or DotA 2 has been the most successful game until today. 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 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 be required to earn gold and experience and these are used to make your hero stronger.
DotA 2 can be compared to the game of chess, the better your opponents are, the more challenging the game becomes. This is why so many tournaments have been held during the past couple of years.
Majority of the population of DotA 2 players are Asians. Two of the most popular countries in Asia that plays DotA 2 are 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. 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.
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). 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 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.
