CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND INTRODUCTION Defense of the Ancients (DotA) is a custom scenario for Warcraft

III, based on the "Aeon of Strife" map for StarCraft. The objective of the scenario is to destroy the opponents' "Ancient". The two teams' ancients are heavily guarded structures at opposing corners of the map. Players use powerful units known as heroes, and are assisted by allied heroes and AI-controlled fighters called "creeps". As in role-playing games, players level up their hero and use gold to buy equipment during the mission.[1] The scenario was developed with the "World Editor" of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, and was updated upon the release of the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. There have been many variations of the original concept; currently, the most popular is DotA Allstars, which has been maintained by several authors during development. Since its release, Allstars has become a feature at several worldwide tournaments, including Blizzard Entertainment's BlizzCon and the Asian World Cyber Games, as well as the Cyberathlete Amateur and CyberEvolution leagues; Gamasutra declared that DotA was perhaps the most popular "free, non-supported game mod in the world".[2] The map has gone on to influence other maps and games, including the upcoming strategy game Demigod.

DOTA GAMES have now been with us for over 30 years. The Atari 2600 is nearly 25 years old. Civilization is now nearly 10 years old. Yet, many Americans fail to recognize these complex achievements as more than fads or child’s play. Ask most people what they think about video games, DOTA and many will respond that they’re a waste of time. Many critics argue that games produce socially isolated people or promote violent behavior. DOTA games are simple, mind numbing entertainment. Playing

games is a waste of time. Some of these criticisms may (or may not) be true, but to view all game playing through this lens is to ignore the broader history of games and the diverse range of game playing experiences available. In fact, the DOTA games sales charts reflect this diversity. The Sims –the

“animated dollhouse” game where players create and play out digital fantasy households has dominated the charts for 18 months straight. There are so many

computer games which is being addicted by the children or students either in high school and college and even the elementary really like the DOTA games or video games. Today millions of students has been playing DOTA games and become their habits it is so hard for them to avoid playing DOTA games.

school. While it was difficult to set a parameter of classifying games according to types and quality since I and my friend believed that the characteristics of the games have something to do with the addiction of students to playing. KHAN. level of . and other highly innovative and competitively graphical games.CHAPTER II Review of Related Literature and Related Studies Related Literature According to Waldbridge. Developing this attitude is not a personal choice alone. player and fan. we thought that it would be safe to just assume games as if have the same characteristics even though these games are under of different types and of the different level of complex graphical presentation. "Responsible gaming is an attitude we need if we are engage into Computer Game. it has led me to study the effects of playing computer games such as DOTA. The purpose of the study was to establish an understanding of to what extent is the effect of playing online games. it requires the participation of society (parents. network games and other types to the studies of the students in the university where I graduated. game developer and government)." As a computer game user.

real-time experiences." . Thus. This means that women has started playing games as early as 4 years old as the time of engagement of men revealed. and they women also spent closely 5 to 8 hrs on the average everyday just like men does. However. the plot of story it is trying to project and a lot more qualities. and it has given me knowledge on the magnitude of effects whether it is health. and family and even money issues. it requires a rigid classification and parameter identification to clearly qualify and quantify the impact of this activity to the life of students and Human in general. "One of result says that female players is exactly the same compared to male players when it comes the time of engagement to games. This shows therefore that in studying game addiction. the extent of its impact is relatively different when we talk about the degree of variation to students experiences towards gaming. I encountered several unique experiences when we did the study. if we quantify the effects then assumption holds that each game that we have studied has a relatively the same impact to students considering its character/quality. social. study.

DotA is not easy to master and play like a Pro. there are many type of gaming modes. which initially a strategic game similar to Red Alert series. What is the content that DotA offers to the gamers? And how's the excitements that it brings towards the gamers? And you may ask a key question. the youth. Almost every people especially the youth has played this game at the very beginning of the years. local LAN. For me. to be particular. Gamers can play DotA on a wide range. Because there are lots of gamers who are more expert than me exist in the DotA community. or LAN over internet connection with various country's gamers. There's no need for me to explain how the game is conducted and the features of the game. There contain variety of Heroes to be chosen as your character. There are lots of effects which DotA brings to our society. and different type of map for the game modes. how long will this DotA effects last? DotA basically is a game expanded from version of War of War Craft. But eventually evolved into current state. from single player.Perez says that. But one things to remind you is. With no doubt this game is one of the hottest game in the market. In every cyber . DotA effects have been continue for several years since the launch of the War of War Craft and the Frozen Throne. this DotA is not a difficult game for amateur. you can start play DotA anytime and familiar with this game easily over 2 or 3 days. You can take up to several years spent on this game but still behave like amateur.

They can discuss about the weapons. no time for the family 4. the grade will be failed 3. Actually DotA serve as a platform for youth to communicate. it is more good for the students spend their time at computer games rather than in drugs. with their face full of concentration and excitements finding ways to defeat their opposing team or enemies. ADVANTAGES Some of the advantages of the DOTA games are: 1.cafe you can see gamers stick with their screen and mouse and keyboard. 2. because this game provides a common topics for every of the teenagers. Teenagers who initially don't know each other can easily become friends through DotA game. 2. and the tactics. it will give knowledge to all the students DISADVANTAGES The following disadvantages of the DOTA games: 1. the students must learn how to cutting their class. the heroes. they should not eat their food properly. .

dissatisfaction often manifests itself amongst some players regarding their inability to do jack shit but sit there and take a fat Blademaster cock up the ass when they get raped by ownage combos. a good player at all. Excuses are many. In many cases especially in the Philippines. to "LAAAG" to "LOL I WASN'T WATCHING (tharfore surely i wud have owned yuo)".Related Studies: Lodaya conducted the study that the favorite pastime of 95% of DotA players is to make excuses when they get owned. DotA just became a shitty medium to condescend to their total lack of actual skill in real time strategy gaming. . in a pathetic attempt to shield themselves from the harsh reality that their own shortcomings have just been exposed for the world to see. DotA is already an excuse to fail IRL. Warcraft 3 is now called DotA. ranging from "lag". In this example. or Encyclopedia Dramaticunt. people who become "PROS" in this so-called "game" turn out to be n00bs in real life. and to try to maintain what little crumbs the other players probably never held in their minds that the dead player in question is in fact. usually in the form of post-death mockery such as "i can push one buttens and get kills WOOO". At least 100 years ago. Ask a regular dota playing Filipino what Warcraft is and he will LOL WUT? Also. Such people are called DotArds. "WOOO" is the noise of a child uncontrollably shitting its pants and crying. See retard. or another favorite one "Where was my team! What you guys doin?!?! Yall jackin off over there or what?!" On top of this. They play DotA as a lame excuse so that they can tell others that they play Warcraft.

It is also known that your head can will explode due to the sheer retardation level and shittiness of the game. the people who obsess over DotA get a great deal of pleasure reminding you of how their mastery is far superior by choosing the "all random" mode .Many variations of the DotA map exist. this isn't because the game is near impossible to master properly (like Pacman) but rather it is completely and totally over complicated. In DotA. which is why most DotArds play their shitty game 24/7. A study conducted that one of the dreadful effects of watching or playing DotA is the reduction of a bit of your IQ. horrible death due to internal hemorrhaging. Those whose minds are simple/retarded/stupid enough to somehow TAKE the overall shittiness will have their minds liquefied into a fine goo and transformed into an addict. Some maps cater to Narutards. Others. To make matters worse in order to actually acquire good items you have to merge items together in what they call a "recipe" which causes the simple decision of choosing an item to increase your agility to take 60 seconds or longer which adds up because you have to keep buying items or you will get pwned hardcore. there are roughly eighty one hundred characters each with their own stats and unique abilities and almost as many items. One would expect that you could simply stick with a handful of characters you actually like but you'd be wrong. Another is a slow. cater to fuckwits with a scatological sense of humor. This complicated system results in literally over 9000 different combinations. As stated above DotA is not newfag friendly. like Tides of Blood.

but who wants to live with that kind of shame. I though first DOTA is actually the name of the game until I found out that its just a map based from warcraft 3 Frozen throne and you can also play different maps of Frozen throne like for example "fight of characters" try to play that. When I started out this game i was fully amazed with the numbers of heroes you are to choose from. I do play this with my officemates and online also through the use of garena. Try to learn all heroes and learn to know how to "Counter them" sometimes you can beat Experienced Players using their counter heroes. This has been very popular up to now. You also need to know what is the equipment they wear through combination of .which means you could be playing as any of the eighty characters available and to make matters worse all the "hardened" DotArds expect that you have had extensive experience with all characters and memorized all item and ability related documentation. In the event you are unable to live up to the standards of the benevolent veterans you can expect to be slandered and mocked at every turn. its also getting popular. When we talk about this game most of the questions are " who is your character?" I always just answer them "it depends" who is your the character of my opponent. Eventually word will get around about how much you suck so you can expect to be instantly booted from any DotA games you try and join which will prevent you from gaining any useful experience leaving you no choice but to become an hero or go back to Halo. A student says. You also have to consider mastering at least one just for you to make sure you can have a game win at all.
