DOTA (Defense of the Ancients) is a mini sub-game from Blizzards Warcraft III. It let you choose from 80+ different heroes of your choice with different special abilities.Your mission is well…. to beat the other team and destroy their base. You can play this game from 1v1 to 5v5 which most Filipinos preferfor more actions and excitement.
So why is this game all over the place?
Free, everyone loves free right? You don’t have to pay a single cent to play this compared to blizzards WOW except for the computer rental if you don’t have a PC at home. Base on my observation, kids ranging from 10 years and above knows how to play this game. It is easy to learn, user friendly and fun.
So if kids play it? so everyone does. Not to mention …”affordable”.. PC rentals in the Philippines are going cheaper and cheaper due to mass Computer Shops opening almost monthly. $0.30 cents per Hour.. Who would not? And even cheaper if you play 3 hours or more with some promos…
As more mature teenagers get better and better in this game, pride most likely to take over. Team vs Team, Area vs Area, my clan versus your clan, a minimum bet of Php 1000 ($20) per game or even up to $100 per game in Manila.As your team wins, pride goes up for more territorial battle. This is one of the reason why DOTA is very much in demand everywhere.
Base on experience and current events, DOTA had been running in the Philippines for about 7 years now, and still growing. With constant new patches adding
new heroes, features and bug fixes, this game will continue its reign of dominance throughout the years. It is the longest running PC game everywhere beating Counterstrike which only made around for about 5 years lifespan here in the Philippines.
It’s from Blizzard’s Warcraft 3 (so love it)
Fun (it is always fun killing someone ingame)
Constant changes ingame made by the developer(IceFrog) to maintain excitement.
The objective never changes, kill and destroy your opponents base. I really hope they could add something new into it.
Young teenagers learn to gamble.(Very bad)
