I tried out LoL recently and actually didn't find it that bad. The free to play mode attracted me but there was a bit of a learning curve, and I just didn't have the time to invest into it.

But I really like the whole concept of these types of games. You have kind of that PVP MMO feel mixed with RTS - I think its something I could get into. Will likely try out DOTA2 when released.

Wonder if Valve is going to be charging top dollar for it, seeing as how their hand in the development was actually very minimal, as they even said themselves that they simply took most everything from the original game and fancied it up a bit.

Valve should try finishing a certain game before making anymore...

Cool Reality check

For those of you who think valve should focus all resources on Half Life 2: You do realize that not everyone who works for valve is qualified to work on that title, right? I mean, if they go out and recruit talent that knows how to develop for something like DotA, those people may not even have the skills to develop for HL2. Also, even if they could have 10,000 people all working on HL2, would it help? At some point the coordination of a complex project is not helped by simply throwing more people or money at it.
