DOTA was established as one of the cards Warcraft III "Defense of the Ancients". According to the initial letters of the card, and formed the name of the game DotA.

DotA 2 has more than 100 unique characters. Each character has its role: attack carry, support and ganker, who interfere to farm carry. Heroes can also be divided according to their dominant quality or skills:

- Agility;

- Intelligence;

- Strength.

DotA map consists 3 line (corridors), which plays computer bots creeps. They appear every 30 seconds on your base. In "lights" - a "World Tree", in "darks" - "Frozen Throne". "Lights" is also called Sentinel, darks - Scourge.

In DotA there are neutral creeps. They attack all day and sleep at night. The most powerful of them - Roshan. The reward for his murder will receive Aegis you restore the life of his hero with a full mana and health.

Dota - a battle of characters (MOBA, Multiplayer online battle arena), it is not a strategy. You do not control any army or base. This is a team game in which you play as his character, develop it, pumping skills and experience, and help each friendly character of his base.
