No.

Just...No.

I get that it has a story to be told, but Valve has a lot of other stuff on their plate they need to get out before worrying about the 'story' of a 7 year old game.

For those that like playing Dota, consider playing LoL. Heard it's really fun.

Super stoked for Dota 2.

My buddies and I refer to HON as Dota 1.5, and LOL as complete shit.

Try LOL out, if you like the style of game - graduate to HON and wait for DOTA2 to come out.

Go big or go home :)
