Dota 2: Pace and RPGs as a Business Model

What makes Dota 2 so great?

I’m going to try and answer this question without diving into the meat and potatoes of the game, so I’m not going to go off about how last-hitting adds a great moment-to-moment challenge to the early game or the impact of good ward placement.

If so. there are many awesome videos, write-ups and people waiting to help you in your journey and even I will gladly help in any way I can.

Decoding Dota: Introduction

What are the first words that come to mind when I say “League of Legends”? What about when I use the term “MOBA”? If you’re like me up until about a month ago, the negative connotations with the two words are likely quite high. Maybe you think of a phenomenon you feel you could possibly never understand, or perhaps the feeling of rejection when you got up all your courage, downloaded the free-to-play game, jumped in and were berated so badly you begin to question why you’re alive.
