Seeing as how they just announced this game, I take it the entrants are big names from some other similar game?

It's basically the worlds best DotA players. As of right now it looks a lot like DotA ported to a new engine.

AWESOME! I've actually been considering reinstalling warcraft just so I could play some good old DotA again.

Yeah, I can play the hell out of League of Legends, but not Heroes of Newerth (which is a closer clone of DotA) and I'm not really sure why.

Things I don't like about DotA 2 (which are things in HoN as well):

- Couriers... I like that if you want to buy in LoL, you need to leave the lane. Makes buying things a tactical decision in my opinion. Sure the couriers can be killed and the enemy can take your loot, but that's far too much of a risk for my gaming taste (guess I'm too carebear?)

- Denying. I don't get the concept. Sure you limit your opponents ability to last hit your creeps and thus limit their power over time, but then you are in the same boat because he's doing it to you. Stupid concept to me. Just last hit and harrass the other champ.

DEATHFORCE: There are certainly crazy things you can do with this game, you can generate a world that is 3 times the size of earth before it starts having errors, although I dont know how long it would take to generate a world that large anyways lol

TRASSIN: I'm guessing about 21 days? Assuming you take a break every 7th day or so.

Just got five copies from Valve. I've given two away. Who wants one?
