Hurrah.... no, not really. DotA's an alright map and all, but the playerbase just sucked. A good chunk of them are nothing more then elitist pricks who are too self-centered to help out newer players. I mean, if you act like a jerk to newbie's (not n00bs), then that just repel's them away from the game, keeping the playerbase static.Anyways, on topic; I wish they don't put this map in, cause then we'll have all the lolDotA idiots come in and generally make the community more worse then it already is.Also, keep the e-sport out of my game, kthx.

What, as opposed to the reasoned, mature community that is the current WoW playerbase? And what does a new battleground map have to do with esports? Arena is the esports venue, battlegrounds is casual pvp.

"more worse ..."Tell you what. I'll make you a deal. I'll get Blizzard to keep their "e-sport" out of "your" game if you promise me an invitation to your high school graduation when you get there.

Agreed, DotA players are extreme jerks. They're famous for it. Calling people Noob constantly, pointing out failures, and in-fighting is a part of the culture.

Yes, people in Dota are extreme jerks, and we will call out your every mistake. Do you know why? We're in it together for an entire hour, and our chances at winning or losing depends on whether or not you're going to feed 10 times and then leave. If you're not going to take it seriously, you've just wasted everybody's time. Where did the desire to WIN go? Get the hell out of my game if you're not playing to win.

That's the thing, though, i AM playing to win. I want to win this game. I want to have fun with this game. I want to play this game.Unfortunately, i'm not particularly good at this game. I'm new. I've played against a few AI opponents to get the feel of it, but once i went online i basically got a bunch of people telling me i sucked and should logoff because they're better without me. And compared to what i've heard about the community they where actually pretty polite about it.I can get better at DotA. If i play with people willing to deal with my inexperience and willing to offer constructive critisicm rather than flipping out at every possible mistake, i'll improve my game.Snowball's chance in hell, it seems. I suppose if WoW gets DotA'd up it'll be the answer to my little problem.

Elitists etc?? so what?? Sounds that you had been a real noob while playing Dota, to such extend that you suggest that blizz shouldn't put such a bg in wow so that good players cannot distinguish from noobs.... Are you seeing nightmares of being pwned again?Keep the e-sport out of your game? Omg! first its not "your" game little prince, and secondly wow is a noob game already full of ppl that think that they have the right to one-shoot everybody cause they drop out of school to play wow all day. Any addition (eg. Arenas) that needs to make ppl think play good and its not only time spend based finds me more than positive
