D2D #1 - What will happen to DotA 1?


CLOSED


Welcome to the first "Dota 2 Discussion" topic! We will be creating discussion topics like this in order to increase our Portal activity. Furthermore, you will be able to win some cool stuff, mostly Dota 2 items, simply by joining our conversations! I will be donating items directly from my personal inventory and reward those who are most active and constructive! So, let's proceed to our first discussion!

As you already know, Dota 2 will be a F2P (free-to-play) game once it comes out from the "closed" beta phase. What do you think, what will happen to DotA 1 once the Dota 2 is out? Will it slowly die out or last forever with a small community? What will happen to the platforms like RGC (Ranked Gaming Client)? Share your thoughts in the comment section bellow!

How to win Dota 2 items?


Very easy of course! I will donate 2 items from my inventory for each discussion, starting with this one. Sometimes those items will be uncommon, sometimes rare but mostly common. We will start with 1 common and 1 uncommon item for this discussion and those will be

Stone Guard

Winner : MR.DEVIL
Raw Hide

Winner : neph7

Important info!


There are a few things that you should be aware of. Yes, we have over 50,000 posts, but we want more! Smile

1. You have to have at least 15 posts in order to win the item(s).

This doesn't mean that you have to post 15 replies in this topic! Don't spam with simple "one-word" posts, we hate that! Razz You have many cool forums on our site, browse through them and reply to some. Easy as that! For example, you can promote or comment clans in this topic, or you can take a look at our interviews with famous Dota 2 teams and people like Na'Vi and Toby and share your thoughts! Furthermore, you can say hello to our new members or simply make your own introduction! Remember, 15 posts and you are secured for the rest of your life. Smile Our advice - land at least one comment once you read our first blog entry, written by Sairex! - LINK

2. Only constructive replies with a good content will be taken into an account.

Don't just say - Yes, I like this idea. Tell us what you like and why! We will read every single comment, don't worry. We also plan to join you and discuss with you! Of course, breaking the common forum rules won't be tolerated (double posts, cursing, trolling etc.)

3. When will we decide about the item winners?

We will do discussions like this very often, so there is a high chance that you will eventually get something cool from us. Once we publish our next discussion, we will again read through the comments from the previous discussion and randomly reward 2 guys (2 items) with the "normal" comments that have more than 10-15 words. Help us to create a nice discussion environment and I promise that eventually we will provide you with very, very cool items! Smile

Back to the original topic - What do you think, what will happen to the DotA 1, once the Dota 2 is out??

Well honestly, in my opinion, i still think ice frog will develop on Dota 1 but focusing more on Dota 2. But when the full Dota 2 project comes out, it makes you think if Ice Frog will keep developing Dota 1. With the recent updates Ice frog added new heroes to Dota 1 (which names i do not know), i think hes going to keep working on both games because of how everyone in the community does not like dota 2 and prefer their OG dota. Just my 2 cents.

Well according to me dota 1 became the best online playing game so far so dota 2 is going to become more popular after some years because this type of games
take skills and much important through out whole 1 hour game u r not going to be bored at all theres always a challenge in every match i must say this game will lasts
forever and always remain popular.
and in future there will be very less dota 1 players i think.

OMG, I was about to contact you and tell you that D2P should start with something like this! Very cool idea!

Back to the topic,

I've played DotA 1 for like a few years. Even though War 3 engine had some crazy limitations, I was never completely irritated by them. It was and still is one epic game on one epic engine. DotA is still a most played game on our local LAN parties and will be for a long time. But "unfortunately", Valve is an amazing company. Dota 2 has, even though it is a "copy-paste" of the original, a much better gameplay and Steam options are here to give a + to a 5 grade. I will eventually transfer myself completely to Dota 2, as soon as all of my friends get access. I might play DotA from time to time, but that won't be nowhere near the past times. Sorry DotA 1 Razz

Yea, just as Rachel said (welcome back btw Smile ), if most of your friends have access to Dota 2, there is no point in coming back to DotA 1. We will certainly play it for some time till D2 gets some LAN options, but once it does I am sure that will be a final bb from me. Sad

Once everything from DotA 1 has been ported over to Dota2, making improvements on DotA 1 will just increase the lag time between when we see the cool new things on a better engine (DotA 2). In fact, I think IceFrog should just apply all of his updates to DotA 2 since they will end up there anyways. Wc3 is becoming obsolete, and while DotA2 has a ways to go, it is the future of DotA as we all know it.

Well, Blizzard isn't going to increase the map size cap and I figure that DotA 1 will eventually fade away like the sands of time. Well, because DotA 1 is going to be behind DOTA 2 in terms of hero count. Graphics, which isn't the most vital thing in every game but it is still important will keep new peeps from playing DotA 1 but instead go to DOTA 2.

i think dota 1 will still continue, since there is still a lot of people here in my country(indonesia), playing dota 1, and not wanting to UPDATE dota 2 every week Shocked because of the 'slow' internet connection here
and icefrog ever promised that he will continue updating dota 1 Very Happy

^i will not commect on the person's response ..to much...

You certanly are one of the noobs if you say that and most certanly you have never played dota 1 to feel a true difference between them.

The most part that difference dota 1 from dota 2 is the engine and the graphic size-over-things-matter.

In dota 1 everything looked more bigger more easyer to approach and more raw as the parts of graphics,while on dota 2 everything is supposed to be smoothly and very small.

For experienced players they know what i am sayng there is a big difference from the view of dota 1 and the view of dota 2 nor the controlls or the animations aren't even more different.

To summ it up and end it dota 1 will not die because of it's assive mechanism and sustainer called w3 engine,where people grew up on it and bearly after that started playng dota ,furthurmore it is in my opinion easyer to train on an low graphics game rather then the new dota 2.

I will always continue to use dota 1 because it is part of my soul,this doesn't mean the upgrade to dota 2 isnt awsome even more,but il pay tribute to dota 1 every time i'l have the possibility and to w3 engine aswell.

Best Regardz.
Blood4u.


P.S. : Truth be said i eagrly await the fucntion in dota 2 to stop sharing my little pwny courier with the other butchers on the map Very Happy.

I actually think that dota 1 is gonna become like on of these games or things, only known to "hipsters". I don't know how large the dota 1 community was/is, but if we assume that Dota 2's is gonna be bigger once the beta is closed up, i don't thik the newcomers are gonna care about the "ugly" thing before the 2.
There are for sure gonna be guys (and i'm gonna be the first in lane probably) saying "y'know kids, i played dota before it was cool, ho ho ho".
It should, for its honors, end in a museum ; Dota 1 should have something like an aegiss of the immortal iG recieved this year, writtend "Dota 1" on it, or something. Y'know.

Plus, from what i remember when i was in the subject, LoL and HoN players always mocked Dota 1 on its graphics. Well, it's changed in the 2nd. So why bother an play a game that's actually far behind from teh graphic point of view? At some point, i agree a lot with the sir above, Blood4u.

My first game at Dota 2 was awful. I couldn't last hit for three minutes. The shopping system seemed awkward. Not to mention that the movement speed seemed way slower than in w3 machine. Took some time to readapt. Some people say that it's better to learn acoustic guitar first, then go on the electronic. Well, I don't think it's the case, though I first learnt the acoustic. Same goes for Dota I guess : why bother to play a game that requires just as much skill to earn ?

I guess there are always gonna be people playing dota 1 ; I'm even sure of it. My friends and I often play it when drunk as heck, and we laugh when one of us can't buy a chicken for 1 minute. "These hotkeys not working man, I swear to God! ". Highly doubt any competitive plays will remain though. Be it tournaments or just gaming clients, they will all forget about dota 1.
I've played it for over 5 years now, I guess. 5 great years with loads of noobs, loads of QQing, ragequiting, farming, learning, thinking, trolling. I still enjoy playing against bots, when i'm bored with dota 2 community, which still has to grow up to reach dota 1's level.

Pretty much this. I believe that DotA 1 (worldwide) will still be here but dying... slowly. And because Dota 2 will be free I doubt that DotA 1 will be gaining much more people then were it's at now.

Also Blizzard most likely doesn't want to continue to support DotA 1, they are creating Blizzard DOTA, they might even go as far as pulling the plug on DotA 1.

Edit: This is pretty much how I imagine DotA 1 dying.

Well , I think dota 1 will slowly disappear after dota 2 will reach the same number of heroes and open the official game. But the legacy will continue
