We're still in the beta phase. It wouldn't seem right if he mentioned the flaws before the game was completely finished.

So true. If DotA did evolve it would be in no way like HoN.

And last spell (Clairvoyance) is given at lvl 10.
So there's no lvl 13 spells now

dota didnt create this genre at all. for those that played the old school

AEON OF STRIFE

maps on the wc3, that was the first time i had ever seen it. dota came out ~1? year after the original.

so tired of seeing anyone at dota being giving credit for creating this when they so very much did not. they did make it popular, but certainly not original.

Just like GUI and Object Oriented / Mouse interface etc... Who came up with that? MS? Mac? Non.. XEROX did, but does anyone out there give the credit to Xerox? It's like giving credit to Edison for inventing the bulb when really many many inventors at his time were working on the same thing from previous inventors, but Edison took the patent in 1880 (I think?) and therefore, he is the father of the bulb. What about Sir Humphry? How about Swan?

Does that mean we should give Blizzard some credit for creating a platform where people were allowed to create awesome games like DoTA?

Everyone knows DoTA, not everyone knows AoS. Also, AoS was maintained / updated by more than one author, I am not going to compare it to Green TD, but it was just another 'random' map. Last but not least, we are talking about credit people, not crediting map. The mentioning of names of who affected who in the history of DoTA and now MoBA should have their names up there.
