DOTA

Thursday, June 05, 2008

I despised this game before, but now, I despise those who despise it.

DOTA is an abbreviation for Defense of the Ancient. It's the most renowned custom scenario of Blizzard's Warcraft III. The objective of the scenario is to destroy the opponents' "Ancient", a heavily guarded structure in each corner of the map. Players use powerful units known as heroes, and are assisted by allied heroes and AI (artificial intelligence)-controlled fighters called "creeps". As role-playing games, players level up their hero and use gold to buy equipment during the mission (from Wiki).

I hated the graphics before. Gamers get crazy about it, computer shops get full because of it, and the more I despised it, the more I got attached to learning about the game. Clyton introduced it to me, and the first time I played it, it was easy and non-addictive. I never got hooked with it until I found out that everyone's learning the game, even the women. My closest friends seem to get along with it as well, and I got left behind.

Bla, bla, bla, I got hooked with the game. The church seems tempted with it as well, they went with the flow and it became our Friday fellowship after youth services, haha. I downloaded the game and practice it. The more I get myself into the game, the more I get myself out of my self, haha. Well, I consider this game something that should be learned before everything gets blurry with requirements and examinations this upcoming school year. DOTA is best when played with your closest friends. It's also the best game to engage with lost people, and later on evangelize them, haha.
