Hacking in online gaming has always been a great problem ever since a game starts gaining popularity, the programmers engage themselves in creating cheats/hacks for games. The Warcraft 3 – DotA is facing the similar problem for the past few years and even Blizzard’s official Battle.net servers were vulnerable to various hacks.
Lots of 3rd party programs and multi-player gaming clients were made to prevent maphacking in DotA but all went in vain. As we all know, Valve has acquired the project of making a sequel, DOTA2. They have a good reputation in the past for keeping their games hack-free using renowned Valve’s Anti-cheat (VAC) on Steam platform. They will certainly include a strong DOTA 2 anti-hack system to counter the possibility of any sort of maphack.
Like Heroes Of Newerth, DotA 2 will have all the games hosted on server-side, it diminishes the chance of maphacks & custom kick. Although, some might abuse in-game glitches/bugs for their advantage which can be easily fixed through regular patch updates. Also, if any site is providing Dota 2 Maphack download; keep in mind that most of these cheat tools contain viruses/keyloggers, don’t fall for it. We’ll be updating this page for further news about DOTA 2 hacks.
