Isn't it technically a violation of the DOTA trademark which Valve owns?

Yes, though only actual legal action has been taken by Blizzard against Valve for the argument that it cannot be trademarked because of the original people behind the modification aren't involved or what not.

I fail to see why Blizzard sees the neccessity to start fights with people. Just pick a different name and use their imagination.

Most of the time these legal actions aren't done by the companies themselves. Just their lawyers being lawyers.

See: Bethesda and Minecraft "Scrolls" incident.

Surely the companies would be notified and be able to tell their lawyers to stop being morons?

I mean, especially the Scrolls incident, while it wont hurt Bethesda that much I'd think for company you wouldn't wanna seem like that big of assholes

It benefits Bethesda / Blizzard. I wouldn't stop them if I were either of those companies' heads.

How exactly did the Bethesda v Mojang thing benefit Bethesda? Last I heard they didn't really win. Though it may not be over yet

For stupid reasons like thwarting a company's product name. It still benefits them in a dickish and irrelevant sorta way.

Oh I love you.

IMO it looks very bad, but I don't have any doubt it will be better than LoL. The art style (chess board) is interesting and better than some stupid Warcraft 3 fantasy land that Dota, HoN, LoL and Dota 2 follow

Updated title.

I'm very confused by this game's choice of title, they want you to call it Heroes but people will just call it HOTS, which is the name of the most recent StarCraft 2 expansion. What a joke.
