Blizzard DOTA, their take on DOTA2, HoN and LoL. ... r-edition/

May be free to anyone as long as they have SC2 Starter Edition.

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.

Will this one be allegedly shit as well?

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

Blizzard are actually going ahead with it...

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.

Heroes of The Storm

Yeah... Im not very taken with the game either, after a few games. Will give it a bit more of a chance, but a lot of the fun is taken out of the genre when you remove so much of the personal character development through a game, I think...
