One question: Is it possible that some how they both get to call their games DotA? From what I gather Blizzard isn't against Valve naming the game DotA 2 they just don't want Valve to own the term/acronym/word so that no one else but Valve can use it.I just want, some day in the future, to be able to play Blizzard DotA AND DotA 2. I just want my two favorite developers to make games that I know I'm going to love for the rest of my life.

Yeah, from what I understand Valve would still be able to trademark/copyright/whatever the specific name "DOTA 2," but not the general name "DOTA."
