This is exactly the point. Blizzard Dota is a reflection of the utter failure of the mod community as a whole, why i felt compelled to post here after all this time. This game was the last hope for this community in my opinion.
As for what we know of titan (according to Blizzard): It has massive broad appeal, it's been playable for a while now and everyone seems to be enjoying it, it's a brand new IP. It's an MMO.
So tell us, what did you expect? It looks like a DotA in "not very serious" mode, just something to play for fun (and ladderpoints, okay). Like as if at any time there would be a 1million$ tournament for it like there is for DotA2.
I think Blizzard Dota takes just the right approach:
The map does not take itself that serious. They know, they cannot compete with a full-fledged game, so they don't even try. They make it to just what it is: A funmap.
Hots is just awesome, what the trailer showed made me quite curious about the campaign, so I do stop on buying HotS.
I love integration of characters from more than one game or world, I've always been fan of that! And I've always mixed frm various worlds when doing something. The idea of bringing Diablo III Witch Doctor in SC2 like in Blizz Dota is a pleasant surprise, having Arthas, Sylvannas too.
This is also bye for vjeux's Storm of the imperial sanctum which was nice SC2 Dota but it still had lots of unbalanced abilities and heros, funny NO LEAGUE Dotaers who abused OP characters, so yeah I played it frm time to time but for me that aint skill.
For WoW: I never liked it but I can say it's a nice idea Pandaria. But soon they will run ouf of places to add, then what? I really dont like these cartoony graphics anymore, they had no choice since these are all expansions. WoW is getting behind in graphics development.
Diablo III on the other hand, shows also improvememnts in cinematic graphics and all. The little I played of a friend's Beta didn't grab me that much, nor did the Cinematic. Of course, could be as epic as Diablo 2, I dont know, but from what I see so far, nothing that can't be missed. I would still play it, but from others who have it apparently, I will likely not buy it.
