DotA Hack, Map Hack, Garena Hack and My Reason

DotA-Blog fellow readers maybe already know that i never put any DotA hack, map hack or even Garena hack on this blog. In this chance, i would like to explain why i don't put any of those tools on this blog.

Any hack abot DotA is the worst thing that a DotA player could do. It's not only put other player on the disadvantage, but also ruin the fun of the Dota game itself. The player who use the hack will also trapped and will prevent them to improve their skills and map awareness. Therefore, i won't support any of those tools in my blog. I hope you can understand my choice. And let's hope someday there's a way to prevent any hack on the DotA map.

Dota Beta Testers Vacancy!

If you wannabe a Dota beta tester, now is your chance! IceFrog has just open up Dota beta tester vacancy on PlayDota. You just have to bring two replays of your game and create a thread in this link. Here's what IceFrog said:


We have opened a new beta signup section at PlayDotA.com. You can signup by creating a thread here. Please read the instructions in that forum first.

This is a new secondary beta group that is being created. It will be primarily used in the days before a map is ready to be released, as an additional line of testing and feedback. Members from there will also have the possibility of being promoted to the primary beta testing team.

This group will be limited to a manageable size (at least initially), so you may not be accepted immediately. Applications are reviewed by the recruiting team in batches based on testing needs and member counts.

In addition to filling out the required information, please also attach two replays of games you've played recently.

It seems IceFrog need a lot of new beta tester for testing the upcoming Dota 6.68. Hope it will released soon.. :)

Dota 6.68 Preview Video Got Delayed

However, today on his blog he also added that the Dota 6.68 video preview is got delayed because he wants to make sure the content is finalized first. Here is what IceFrog said:


With regards to the video trailer, I was originally planning to post it well in advance of the map release but I've decided to hold off on making it until more content is finalized. I'll post previews here when the map is mostly ready.

Well, honestly, i think the preview is much better if it is posted when the map still on progress and not when the map is ready to going out. But it's IceFrog decision anyway, let's wait for the map. And hey, Christiano Ronaldo still doesn't make a goal -_-

Happy Birthday PlayDota! And IceFrog Talks Dota 6.68

IceFrog Talks Dota 6.68Several days ago (June 10) is the first birthday for PlayDota, which is born after IceFrog decide to leave Dota-Allstars.com and make a new community site. It's been a year and i remember at that time we're waiting for the Dota 6.60 release which takes months but gives us a lot of changes, including the new items layout.


And it seems this year we got another long wait for Dota 6.68 which IceFrog promises it will contain new heroes and reveal that Icarus the Phoenix as one of them. And in the PlayDota birthday thread, IceFrog is making a new post about Dota 6.68.

STR1D3R said:
i agree that some sort of estimation would be nice although i understand that you dont like giving these out because it puts pressure on you and if you fail to meet it there will be a lot of QQ threads. maybe some form of i am roughly x% of the way through to give us some sort of idea would be nice.

And IceFrog reply:
It is also because I can't be sure myself. It is not easy to accurately predict "it will take 1 week to make this hero fun", there is a good amount of experimentation and beta testing that is needed to arrive at that stage. And like you said, if I posted "June 26" and I missed it by a week or two, people would be upset. I also don't want to make my development goal be a date rather than the content, that style of development makes it easy to make bad decisions. I can tell you that I'll do my best to make sure any wait is worthwhile though. The only thing on my mind is DotA's development and future.

As for your request, I'd say its definitely much more than half way through.

Even though IceFrog still keep quiet about the release date, but now at least we know that Dota 6.68 is already "much more than half way through". Keep up the good work IceFrog! At least now while waiting we got World Cup 2010 to keep us busy ^^

Dota 2 Coming Soon?

Most of us already know that currently IceFrog is working with Valve to develop a new game inspired by DotA. However, we got no further information about it yet. We still don't know anything , the game name (will it be DotA 2?), the release date estimation or even the platform (very possible on PC considering the Valve background, but hey, there's no official information yet!).

But recently, IceFrog has just made a post that his new game with Valve will be come on the near future.
Of course, as we know with DotA, near future is very relative. But considering from what usually happen on Dota, i think it could be around 3-6 months. Here's IceFrog post on the PlayDota forum:


What do you think guys? Will it be named Dota 2 or maybe it will come on totally different name and concept? Can it beat Heroes of Newerth or League of Legends which already come to public? I hope IceFrog will give us a sneak peek on what he worked right now really soon.. @_@
