Abstract. The culture of DOTA (Defense of the Ancients) has taken the Philippines to storm because of its very creative gameplay that caused millions of Filipino students hard for them to avoid playing the game; and it is also evident from media to the internet. This game has brought such intense effects to the Filipino youth and its everyday life; up to the point where they are affected physically, psychologically, and their respective careers. Because of DOTA, the computer shops in the country have been growing massively since its release; the youth are gathered there to play informally and to show their enthusiasm and foster friendship, teamwork and camaraderie. It follows the ‘booming’ computer shop industry and culture in the country. Also, some people handle DOTA tournaments to encourage other people and make this gaming industry to grow in the country. Because of the addiction of the people playing the game, they also express DOTA through the arts and music, language, internet and the social networks.

Due to the popularity of this game, many players indulged themselves into it; some spend lots of hours playing it over and over again and that‟s why it “sets a Filipino gamer apart”. Majority of the gamers in the Philippines are playing DOTA and regarding it as their specialty compared to playing other games like Ragnarok, Tantra, etc. These factors make playing DOTA to become culture here in the country, and it continues to flourish since 2003.

The paper will also present the research methodology executed and the interpretation of the data acquired.




omputer gaming is one of the most favorite hobbies and pastime of the Filipinos aside from watching television and playing sports, until the Blizzard Entertainment released Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and Icefrog, Eul & Guinsoo released the DOTA custom map for Warcraft. The invasion of DOTA in the Philippines is very massive, that millions of Filipinos are getting involved into it. Many other people are encouraged and influenced to play this strategy game that led to their addiction. “The culture of DOTA in the Philippines sets a Filipino gamer apart.” -Sir Malacaman, 2012


rawing inspiration from a popular Starcraft mod known as Aeon of Strife, the first version of DotA was released in the middle of 2003 by an individual known only by his pseudonym "Eul" (Feak, 2009). In Eul's original DotA, players could choose one of 32 heroes, and hold up to six items simultaneously from a pool of 39 available options. This rudimentary predecessor of the current DotA paved the way for the future innovations that have led to the success it is today. On May 29, 2003, Blizzard officially released the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne expansion pack which added a breadth of new features to Warcraft III, including a

new and improved World Editor. This new tool provided map-makers far more options for customizing items, skills, models, tiles, etc (Feak, 2009). Utilizing these newly released tools, many spinoffs of the original DotA were created with vastly superior sets of features, including the first versions of Steve "Guinsoo" Feak's Defense of the Ancients: Allstars which is the focus of this postmortem. Guinsoo originally began development on DotA Allstars because he was frustrated with bugs and balance issues in the version of DotA that was most prominent at the time (Feak, 2007). Contrary to popular belief, DotA started on Reign of Chaos before the expansion, The Frozen Throne came out. It was based on the custom map "Aeon of Strife" from Starcraft, a team game focusing on hero combat. There have been many different versions of DotA, but only one shines, IceFrog's DotA Allstars. Since then DotA has come a long way, from terrain changes, balances, bug fixes, new heroes, new items and graphics, IceFrog does it all (Neha, 2007). To do all of the changes, IceFrog built a new community site where everyone can suggest and contribute contents that can help him develop the custom map. Now, you can choose over 100 heroes and choose from over 50 items to equip. “My goal is to have a format where everyone that wants to help can contribute in a productive way.” -IceFrog, 2009.

Second, there is only few research papers published about this topic. Third, I wanted to know more about its culture. Fourth, I am also playing DOTA.
