Hello there. So as you can see from the topic we are going to talk about Dota/Dota2. Here you can express your opinion about first game/mod, and your thoughts how will the second look like. Have you heard any news on dota 2 or any rumors ? I have a picture which proves that they are testing dota 2 servers http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/534/unledpm.png/.

P.S. I dont know if there are topics like this, but i couldnt find them.

I never played the first but it sounds like it had a nice concept so I'll probably buy DOTA 2 just because Valve is developing it.

I don't really want it to be. The whole F2P with micro-transactions concept is something I don't really like.

I don't mind the F2P+MicroTrans model, but it really decreases the average capability and game-fluency of players. That is unless they're ranked according to play time, which is a system that's relatively analogous to how Battlefield Heroes works.

I'm honestly fine with F2P with micro-transactions, as long as it's done well. Take the Koreans for example, they have the system down really well and their F2P games go very well with little complaints. I don't want to go into detail on how they do it, but I will if you really want me too.

FTP with mictotransactions really makes sense as a profitable system, especially for a developer with Valve's "games as a service" mentality. You hook people from a larger pool by letting everyone play, then they're tempted to purchase stuff once they get invested in the game.

Hey I received several free copies of dota-2. I also have not one person to give them to so anyone who wants one can friend me on steam (meffer4).

note: I received 4 copies and have 3 remaining and it is first come first served.

This is probably because invites seem to be getting sent out like hot cakes.
