If you are going to participate in the map contest... You shouldn't have posted this thread. If I recall right you are not allowed to show off any of your work to the public before the 13th or something. Correct me if I'm wrong (They might have changed it).
Does it matter what we call it?
S2 doesn't deny that it's DotA 2.0. (S2=Maker of HoN).
And to the somewhat strange dude saying the UI of HoN is a ripoff from Wc3.... Compare C&C with SCII for me ... I cant recall the difference...
Anyway. This is news, never has it been confirmed that Valve was making a new dota. I would even dare to say it's pretty stupid to do it right now.
Many players are staying at Wc3, afraid of changes or not willing to pay for something new. Others are playing HoN / LoL, but honestly. I do not think there is much more room for any other game. You got them all:
DotA - Original, cheap.
HoN - Upgraded engine and new content.
LoL - Free with altered gameplay.
As stated before, the community is not big enough for 4 games.
When I did this, I had 3 barracks. Around 30ish workers on the minerals and dual marine addon on those barracks.
Just spam marines until around the 2nd rescue thing starts (The one were marines show up in the zerg area of the map). Then gather your forces, go from right and work your way from there.
If you keep spamming marines (Use the new ones for defense) you should be able to take out the upper right hatcheries (3 of them there). Then work towards the opposite area while adding more units in groups of 10ish and rush 1 of the hatcheries, because here they just keep coming. Oh, upgraded weapon and armor is given.
