EXACTLY WHAT IS DOTA 2? Dota 2 is the upcoming fantasy strategy game being developed by Valve, the makers of Portal, Left 4 Dead, and Half-Life. Dota stands for Defense of the Ancients and the game type originated as a user-created mod in Blizzard’s WarCraft 3: Reign of Chaos in 2003. It’s the original multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game that started the entire craze over seven years ago. Right now, Dota 2 is in closed beta mode so that Valve can work out all of the kinks. Nevertheless, the company is so confident in their product that they debuted the game by throwing a $1 million tournament at Gamescom this year featuring 16 of the most accomplished Dota teams. The tournament was a huge success and was a great way to get the hype train rolling for Dota 2. However, with so many MOBA games out now we wanted to give you a bit of a 101 on what’s sure to become one of the most competitive video games out there once it’s released next y .

Lane Creeps Lane Creeps spawn from either faction’s base and constantly push towards the enemy’s. Lane Creeps are aligned with one faction, and will attack enemy Creeps (including Neutral Creeps), Heroes, and Buildings. Destroying the enemy team’s Barracks will provide that lane with Mega Creeps, upgrading certain Lane Creeps depending on which Barracks is destroyed. Lane Creeps come in three varieties: Melee Creeps, Ranged Creeps, and Siege Creeps. Melee Creeps have more health, but deal less damage and appear in larger groups. Ranged Creeps deal more damage to other Creeps, but less against Heroes, and have Mana. Siege Creeps deal more damage to Buildings, have more health, and spawn every sixth wave. Siege Creeps do not grow during the game, and cannot be improved by destroying the enemy Barracks. All Lane Creeps can disable Backdoor Protection on enemy Buildings when close.

When an enemy’s Barracks falls, all Lane Creeps of the associated type for that team begin to spawn as Mega Creeps. Mega Creeps are stronger versions of regular Lane Creeps that give less Gold and Experience to the enemy when killed. When all enemy Barracks are destroyed, Upgraded Mega Creeps begin to spawn.
