trailer looks very much like source, screenshots look only vaguely like source. kind of reminds me of a zelda style

Well, it seems that many old classic items and heros is gonna be present and if valve does everything right with the gamemechanics, this is gonna rule them all ;)

Also, trailer has good graphical spots but mostly I think we are fooled by lightgray leafs!

Okay, so I've never actually played DotA, so maybe the game is just kinda like this, but was I the only one who was watching the trailer and thinking "DotA 2: Aladdin"?

I mean, maybe the guy is supposed to have a Russian accent instead of an Indian accent, but he reminded me of the street merchant at the beginning of Disney's "Aladdin."

Well the original DotA is a Warcraft 3 mod so it looks like Warcraft. Valve put their own art style in to the mix so it looks distinctly unique if you compare the two. But yeah the merchant does sort of resemble the one in Alladin. Hell that might have been a reference they used.

that's an intense amount of network lag I'm seeing.

Judging from the tournament stream it seems like a pretty solid game. Once I saw the water in motion I could clearly tell it's source :)

I was kinda expecting something more from Dota 2 since It just seems so much dumbed down from what I'm used to see in Heroes of Newerth. Maybe it's just the very clean looks that fools me.

I hate HoN's art style so much. Maps look like mud and everything runs together and the GUI is hard to get used to.

I do love the announcer stuff though. Like when the gay guy says "Hissyfit!" when someone ragequits. Fucking hilarious. They go a bit overboard with all the different announcers but it's still funny.


PS: The videos are live streams if I'm correct, so that's probably the reason why it looks like the game is lagging a lot. I could be wrong though, but you'd think they would play tournament matches on a LAN.

For people who don't know why there was lag.
The stream started with using the DotATV in game streaming set up.
Once the stream broke 1 million viewers the game started to bug out so they had to split it off over to ownedtv set up on another side computer (why we lost the shoutcasters).

They forgot to split the China stream and that broke 1 mill on it's own so it made another huge lag spike.

By the end of the game there was over 2.8 million viewers of the main stream and it was making issues for the person spectating.

Trailer wasn't very impressive to me excluding the narrator's face in the ways of graphics.

Also, its easier to use more effects and stuff on topdown perspectives, bigger budget and no need for vis-like optimization, you can't look out and see a bunch of stuff at once. Also, from the screenshots, it looks like Valve is still using their out of date form of RTT shadows, if this ends up being final, I'll be slightly surpised(AS had code for topdown projectedtexture based sunlight and Portal2 had a console command for what looked to be RTT shadow model receiving).

I hope it runs better than Alien Swarm did.
