What is DotA?
DotA (Defense of the Ancients) is a very popular customized game for Warcraft III:The Frozen Throne. There are two teams of five players and each player selects one of over seventy heroes which they will use to try to destroy their opponent’s base, while protectingtheir own. As players accumulate money, they can use it to buy a large variety of items toenhance the strengths of their hero and provide additional abilities.
