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 discussing more about this online game and why a lot of people are hooked playing it.
DotA 2 is a strategy game that is based on 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 earning experience and gold and you will use these to upgrade your hero.
Just like chess, the better your opponents are, the harder the game becomes. This resulted to a lot of tournaments for the past years.
Majority of the population of DotA 2 players are Asians. Thailand and the Philippines are two of the most popular countries in Asia where players love to play DotA 2. Players from Sweden and other Northern European nations also spend a lot of their time playing DotA 2. 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 Steve Freak was the original creator of this map but he alter passed the torch to Ice Frog. 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.
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.
