Why The Original DotA Will Always Be The Best.



Ok here goes. I've been feeling in kind of a gaming turmoil lately because i will be moving to dota 2 along with most of the players in a little while and i think that the original dota will be forgotten. So here's somewhat of an Ode to it.
This is my personal opinion, i couldn't give two cents if someone thinks LoL or HoN are superior to DotA.


Why The Original DotA Will Always Be The Best.

BecauseÖ Itís just that. Itís the original, the one that drew you into Mobas, the one that taught you how to not suck, how get better, how to go from agility carries to fun intelligence and strength heroes, the one that gave you the tingling sensation of getting your first First blood, The one where you first out-farmed your solo mid opponent by 50 cs and 40 denies.

The one that Despite all the leavers and flamers, you kept playing for a long long time, the one that was before all the shitstorm of copycats that exist right now, the one where getting your first godlike actually meant something, meant you were getting better at it, the one that after a point you had learned all hotkeys for all heroes, memorized each item build, the one that gave you the ability to try out different wacky item builds as time progressed and you gained experience.

The one that taught you when to Teleport away, The one that heightened your senses to the point you could smell a gank a minute before it happened, the one that taught you that clan wars are in a different level than pubs, that actual strategy was needed, the one where you got so obsessed with high skill heroes such as geomancer and invoker to the point where you played 15 straight games with them.

The one where you first juked your opponents while you were one hit away from death, the one where you killed your first roshan and you didnít know what the aegis did, the one where you started out with boots first and always built vanguard because it made you harder to kill. The one where you stole the kills from your allies using blink strike because you thought that kills is the only thing that matters, The one where you stole the kills from your allies using dagon because you wanted to have fun.

Because underneath the outdated graphics is a game so brilliant and majestic that itís so hard to describe with words, a game where people have logged over 100,200,500 hours without getting bored of it at all. A game that has forged friendships and strategies.

Because it was the first of its kind, a true masterpiece.


BecauseÖ

Itís Just That. The One.

Laughing there's this charm in DotA that the other games can never replicate no matter how it is beaten in graphics, gameplay and community.

remember back then when I always played after school. Good times Sad

+100! DotA 2 will definitely has more fun thx to its graphics but without DotA there will be no DotA 2 right?
I love you note, tsakaman! maybe thats your final tribute to DotA cz after DotA 2 is released then 90% DotA will be forgotten

You encapsulate so well which we will all see as nostalgia years from now. :')

I share your perspective to the tee!
