DOTA 2 Details Leaked by Beta Tester

Sponsored Links:

Dota 2 LeakedAn anonymous poster who claims to be a DOTA 2 Beta Tester has revealed some precious & interesting information related to the DotA 2. According to him, DOTA 2 currently has the highest priority among all Valve’s projects.  These disclosed details are not official but they look promising as some of them are mentioned in DOTA 2 Q&A and Leaked patch notes.  If these features are real, DOTA 2 will become king of Action RTS genre.

DotA 2 Details by Anonymous:

Special Steam Client:

– Valve has given special ‘unlocked’ version of steam clients to closed beta testers which can be accessible by certain users.

DotA 2 Game Modes:

– There wil be several modes in DOTA 2 along with Classic DotA mode:

Classic Mode: None of the changes, 100% WC3 Dota
Normal Mode: Orb updates, bug fixes, etc
Easy Mode: No EXP loss from deny, no gold loss on death, etc
All Random All Mid: I give you 1 guess.
Fortress Mode: 1 team is attacking while the other defends, defending team can buy traps, attacking team can buy creeps.
Arena Mode: FFA or teamed death match
Wild Mode: Random heroes with random skills.
Free Mode: No cool downs with no mana cost on skills.
Commander Mode: When you die you are changed into another hero with the same items and same level. The first side to run out of heroes or to lose their base loses.

• Improved User Interface

– The new UI aids the user in last hitting creeps, especially for  meelee heroes.
– Shop layout has been beautifully designed inspired by Heroes of  Newerth.
* Auto Item Buy abilitiy depending on your gold.
* Item Suggestions will automatically popup with you go nearby the shop.

Game Duration:

– The Classic mode game lasts same as TFT DotA.
– Easy Mode average game goes to 20-30 minutes on most cases.

Improved Mechanics:
– Orb effect system remake.
– Animation Cancelling remains the same.

DotA 2 Heroes & Items:
– DotA 2 will contain all the heroes that are present in current version. Similarly, all the items have been ported with different names (For e.g. Sheepstick for Guinsoo’s Scythe of Vyse)

* Some Hero Models have been modified but easily recognizable by their  look and abilities.

DotA 2 Maps:
– There are 8 maps right now tho some of them only really work for their  modes (like the All Random All Mid map).
– 3v3v3 Maps for fun.
– Ganking style maps.

Free-to-play or Micro-transactions?
– This is still a mystery, Valve currently has a in-game shop for skins and other items for DoTA 2. However, it’s still undecided whether these items can be gained using achievement points or real money.

DotA 2 Beta NDA ending date:
– DOTA 2 NDA is set to be lifted on 17th August and GamesCom will be  held on the same day. We can expect a playable Demo or public beta start.

Legal Issues:
– Valve/IceFrog are worried about DOTA trademark and they are deeply concerned about ideas being stolen by other RTS game developers.

DotA 2 Graphics:

– The game over all looks bright, the map has nice contrast to the heroes and it is east to see units on top of it. The units over all have vary complex models that look great if a little on the dark side. Techies (who I play the most) is now a cart with 2 goblins in the back  holding a bomb and 1 goblin in the front. Their spell effects look  really good too. Phantom Lancer looks much more like a lion man and is  a darker blue. Pit Lord is fully redone and looks like a huge hell dog with two heads and dragon wings. Overall, the game indeed looks great.

Regarding Images:
– Unfortuately, still no Dota 2 gameplay video or images are available.

DotA 2 for beginners:
– The game has more organized in-game guide/coaching system for beginners, It contains guides & video tutorials for each and every hero available on DOTA TV.

DotA 2 Launcher:
– The game launcher has full support for community forums, achievements & clans tournaments. If you are organzing a tournament, you do not have to write rules, hero bans and modes every rule and regulation is pre-selected by Valve.

– Fully automated tournament system based on player/clan rankings.
– Spectate live public/league games using DOTA 2 TV with detailed statistics of every player with clean UI.
– In-game video maker.
– Seek replays to any point.

    Tnx for the infos who ever you are. I wish Valve and Icefrog would release a public beta test. May i ask something Mr. Anonymous if you can read my comment, Do you have a clue when would DotA 2 would be released? And can you Take some pictures from DotA 2 Characters and Skills by using Print Screen. Hope you can. 🙂

  • Annoymus

    fuck, i hate the HoN Shop


    Will DOTA2 will be like an interface of GARENA? a community interface which presents several rooms and network dedicated for playing DOTA? I think this is their answer against GARENA GAME MODE NETWORK AND GAMERANK. in which both have a dedicated servcer for DOTA, HALFLIFE. BLACK OPS. etc.

    Currently this Game networks uses an internet interface for playing DOTA online so the real quetion is whats the difference??

  • AoN

  • shumbinho

    is there a single player mode? I want to see if the old bugs and exploits still works (sk burrow strike a hill and appearing on another place instead of the target, rhasta ulting a hill and snakes appearing on the other side of it, lich’s ulti someone and before the ulti hits, the target gets killed, his ultis goes on another person very far from there, etc)

  • Adae Neemo

    I just wish it would’nt need permanent internet connection ,like all the shit that is being released nowadays .
    And is the game free? Warcraft 1.21+ doesn’t need any activation and that makes it popular where I live…

  • Raizen_perez

    As ive seen in the graphics i cant see any resemblance i can feel the soul of dota in to it the simplicity is lacking which makes Dota stand out to all. I hate to say this but It just look like a HoN wannabe. Im disappointed just wish that they just stick to the graphics of Icefrog because it looks like shit. Valve is really stupid if they think they can fool the real players of Dota in making us believe that nothing has changed. Actually they just messed up the best game ever Fuck the valve Fuck Dota 2. I will just have to sitck to the original Defense of the Ancient instead of patronizing this HoN wannabe.
