Defence of the Ancients ( DotA )

Dota, one of many custom made game from WarCraft, and is very successful. Definitely one of my favorite computer games of all time. The game existed long ago and still growing. In just a few years it grows rapidly, bring a lot of changes, new play style, more option, flexibility and excitement. The number of player increased fast and still increasing.

Unfortunately many people out there have a wrong mind set of Dota. These people are usually those who get bullied in the game and quit because they can’t resist the humiliation. Another group of people are those who never play or see what is Dota. For those who quit because you got bullied in the game, please don’t give up easily. If you give up easily just for a game, what makes you think you can go through thunder storm when you go out after bigger deal. Thomas Alva Edison did not gave up when he failed, he keep on trying and improve from his mistake until he successfully created a light bulb works well. Of course, the player who bullied them are wrong as well, they shouldn’t scold the newbies like they got no dignity.

Dota is not about killing, it is about flexibilities, concentration, wisdom to invest, prediction, teamwork, critical thinking, anger management, interception of opponent’s strategy and having fun. In the game, it is good to have your own specialties but having flexibility to play other  style will always be an advantage for you. An average of match Dota will be around 1 hour, so you will need concentration to keep up from the beginning of the game until almost end of the game. Like any other games, there will have their own money currency, the same goes to Dota. Player need to think wisely to buy the correct item at the correct timing. Player who are able to read opponent’s movement or predict very well will have the advantage of intercepting opponent’s strategy. This is important because you will always be at the disadvantage when your opponent always know what is your next step. Critical thinking is also an important asset that is required for every player because in the game, you can never predict every thing, caught in an ambush will cause you panic, and with good critical thinking, you can solve the problem instantly with efficiency. Player need to have good anger management as well because we are still human, mistake always come along and there is no use to get so upset for some mistake. Teamwork is important too especially when you want to have fun.

Besides all those required skills, we need to have a good attitudes as well. Stop greeting other player’s mother. Their mother is innocent. I’m sure their mother never teach them to play like that. Instead, their mother will ask them not to play games and study hard. What about their father? Why mothers are always the victim? I’m not suggesting that we should send greeting to their father as well but why only mothers?                 ( ….erm…what?…) Well, I think it is enough that you send greetings to the players. You don’t have to forward those greetings to other relatives.

I’m confused for what I just wrote, and I think it is better I stop here. Overall, the game is fun. You can be good at it but don’t get addicted to it. Peace. XD
