Defense of the Ancients variants

Group Description

Defense of the Ancients (abbreviated as DotA) is a user modification for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. It popularized a set of specific real-time strategy game mechanics:
  • Multiplayer focus: while there can be a single-player mode, DotA variants are primarily multiplayer games.
  • Team based: there is a strong emphases on team play, i.e. the teams consist of multiple players.
  • Heroes: each player controls a single hero unit with special abilities. During the course of a match, the hero's abilities are upgraded. Some variants also offer general upgrades which are applied between matches.
  • Maps: usually the maps are symmetric.

Limitations

  • Games with DotA user modifications are not included.
  • This group is restricted to real-time strategy games.
