Game Reveal Reaction
i'm aware, and they dont have the permission, that's why they changed all the character's names
Well I dont think they NEED permission..cause it wasnt Blizzard who made DOTA, it was basically a mod. And I think they got the original guys who made it to make the new one...or some shit....there was no real lore behind the original one from what I remember...so its not like Bliz could do anything, not 100% sure on that though so dont quote me.
they do need permission, dota characters were ripped from the warcraft universe
But they werent even really blizzards characters...the models were...but the characters werent....like even the models are designed off of older material from dnd and whatnot.
I just looked up the original characters and i can say from someone who plays wow that some of these for certain are wow characters
All they need to do is change a few things from the models and its legal, plus the characters dont have the same names even in the dota mod. There was no character named pudge in WC3, its not Medivh its Rubick the Grand Magus...thats not to say I support DOTA, its just that they arent ripping characters straight out of WC3.
Yeah but the characters are quite obviously based off real wow characters, pudge is obviously stitches or any generic abomination. I know all the dota 2 stuff was legal as they changed all the names and character backgrounds, but my main point is that card games rely on lore for cards, and with very little lore, i cant imagine it being that good for dota
DOTA has lots of lore though doesnt it? Its not like they dont think up stupid reasons for their characters...they have at least as much as they need to for a card game...heres just one characters bio "Rattletrap descends from the same far-flung kindred as Sniper and Tinker, and like many of the Keen Folk, has offset his diminutive stature through the application of gadgetry and wit. The son of the son of a clockmaker, Rattletrap was many years apprenticed to that trade before war rode down from the mountains and swept the plains villages free of such innocent vocations. “Your new trade is battle,” his dying father told him as the village of their ancestors lay in charred and smoking ruins.
It is a poor tradesman who blames his tools, and Rattletrap was never one to make excuses. After burying his father among the ruins of their village, he set about to transform himself into the greatest tool of warfare that any world had ever seen. He vowed to never again be caught unprepared, instead using his talents to assemble a suit of powered Clockwerk armor to make the knights of other lands look like tin cans by comparison. Now Rattletrap is alive with devices—a small but deadly warrior whose skills at ambush and destruction have risen to near-automated levels of efficiency. An artisan of death, his mechanizations make short work of the unwary, heralding a new dawn in this age of warfare. What time is it? It's Clockwerk time!"
Yeah the characters have lore but as far as I know there isn't much world lore
Why would a card game need world lore?
to base the cards on?
Thats only if they decide to do it like MOTG, where you have cards based on locations. If the cards are just monsters and items, they wont need world cards.
nono, there aren't enough characters in dota currently to cover the amount of cards a card game needs
They have 113 heroes in DOTA 2, if they add in regular monsters like the creeps lets just say 1 card for each type they can bring it up to 131...pokemon only had 150 to start...and thats not that far ahead. Then theres effects cards(items/buildings) which can fill in for quite a bit more.
also MTG has 16505 cards lmao
Yea but how long have they been going on for? According to wikipedia, it was launched in 1993...not a fair comparison to have a 24 year old game against one that still hasnt come out yet. And as far as pokemon being shit....most card games are pretty crap.
magic the gathering is awesome
Ive never played it cause card games arent my thing..
the pokemon trading card game is kinda shit

Fair point, but I can't think young Obi-Wan or Qui Gon would have been better fits.
Maybe they're still working on their models and animations, so they just used what they had complete?
