10 Fun Facts of Dota

10 Fun Facts of Dota

 Dota 2 is a multiplayer online battle arena video game and the stand-alone sequel to the Defense of the Ancients (DotA) mod. Developed by Valve Corporation, the game was officially released on July 9, 2013 as a free-to-play title for Microsoft Windows, concluding a beta testing phase that began in 2011. OS X and Linux versions of Dota 2 were released on July 18, 2013. In most regions, Dota 2 is exclusively available through Valve’s content delivery platform, Steam.

So, for all you DotA fans out there, here’s some stuff that you might’ve not known. Read up, and who knows, they might just help you win your next DOTA match, not necessarily DOTA 2 match 🙂

1 – SF having Wisp’s orbs as his ult

Yes, when SF first came out, his ult was basically permanent Wisp’s orbs that could be expanded and contracted, and dealt pathetic damage.

2 – Zeus’s static field was an active

With something like a 0 secs CD and less %. I remember how useless I thought it was, and how it got me laughing out loud when I ganked a Zeus and he spammed it desperately (the animation was hilarious, like he was doing squats) doing close to no damage and then died.

3 – There was a hero called God of Wind

No one seem to remember this hero, not even me. I don’t know what skills he had, the only reason I remembered his name was because he came in the same patch as BS and both were removed. I noticed BS came back, but God of Wind never did.

4 – Deso Clinkz was the bomb

Aside from SA, rushing first item Deso on Clinkz was the second most popular way to pub stomp. And it was surprisingly effective back then. No one seem to ever mention this, but Medusa Aegis Rapier is commonly brought up.

5 – Dazzle’s ult was Shallow Grave

This would have been beyond imbalanced today. Basically the long ass duration lasted longer than it’s cooldown so you can cast it on more than one person. If the person dies, he loses no gold and respawns almost immediately.

6 – FV had Carrion Swarm

Probably the most out of place spell I can remember. Everyone remember his old ult stunned the entire map, but no one remembers that he had Carrion Swarm in place of Time Walk.

7 – Ogre Magi had 100% multi-cast

There was no chance, only leveling up your ult and getting aghs.

8 – SK’s two forgotten spells

He leaves behind a trial of dust that debuffs enemies with miss chance, and it only worked when he was on Sentinel. And he could burrow indefinitely and stuns when he comes out.

9 – BOT used to cost 2700 gold

And the only other boot upgrade was Treads. And there was no such thing as TPs. Or couriers. Or even tangos.

10 – This one is still here, but I bet very few in Dota 2 remembers this now.

You can literally walk to a spot near the enemy fountain and appear back in your base as a shortcut. I’ll give you an apple this didn’t make you go “OH YEAH”.
