I meant people who like Valve games, but yes it is mostly(entirely) FPS.

A lot of cs players switched to dota. I was playing competitive cs and most of the people I used to play with or against switched to dota. Counter-strike community and Dota goes together imo (competitively speaking)

In all seriousness though, I am unsure about the *legal* aspects behind this purchase. As far as I know, Icefrog was not the original creator of Dota and only took control of the DotA team after the old leader Guinsoo had departed from the company.


What company are you referring to? A custom map is not a company!

There's nothing wrong with having an informed and justified opinion. What you posted was a display of ignorance. An opinion should be the result of thought, not a substitute for it.

Icefrog didn't make DotA, Eul did.

Alright, Then:

(Of course they also wanted the guy who worked on it in the first place.)

Point still stands.
I never cared for DOTA and really it might be the first Valve game i scoff at....

If you want a starting point,
Portal was their try at an innovative puzzle game, thus branching into new user groups.

This is natural for a company to provide their talent and apply it to other fields.
In this case they want to tap an RPG-RTS crowd.
And of course the DOTA crowd XD.
