Heroes of Newerth (DOTA)

Anyone else play this yet?? Essentially DOTA with updated graphics and a better interface. I thought it was cool how they even got permission from Icefrog even though they probably didn't need it.

So far I have to say that I'm really loving it! Same gameplay as DOTA and same heroes (although new names and spell effects) What I think is the best is that it opens the gameplay up for different maps. I've only played two maps (the original and a vertical like one) thus far, but has a lot of potential!!

It basically feels like they took everything that was kind of annoying about battle.net/warcraft3/dota and fixed it, along with implementing a ton of new stuff like VoIP. It's still in beta but fun as hell!!

Here's a link to a video on their facebook page:

Sorry if there was already a thread but I didn't see anything

Closed beta = NDA, keep that in mind.

With that said; this game is billed as a stand-alone dota game, and you can tell. They've optimized almost everything that irked me about dota and streamlined it all into one easy to use package.

Edit: I have a couple of invites, pm me your email address if you're interested in participating in the beta.

Wow, this would be incredible, but only if it ran in OSX.

dota is the only video game i ever play, and i love it, but a new client might be awesome.

Yes, you probably would, if you like the general concept of Demigod.

it needs some severe balancing, and the community isn't very noob friendly, but it is a fun DOTA clone. And I always try to support S2 games when possible.

So you don't mind people yelling at you for 'being new' all the time, then you'll have fun.
