@DrakkBut here's the problem. I wasn't introduced to the genre through the original Defense of The Ancients map in Warcraft 3.It was literally used as a description from my friend when he tried to explain what LoL was, and described it as a DoTA style game. Right there proves that not all people are familiar with the name of DoTA as a game map or variant of Warcraft 3, but for a few people like me and others, it's a description of a genre.But after re-reading my post, it seems that I really muddied my original intention of my point.It was mostly to say that because of this whole incident, I believe Valve should honest to god try and cut their losses and rebrand their title. I was unaware of the apparent problems with Icefrog, but I still think that Valve will, in the long run, save and create more revenue by trying to rebrand their product instead of continuing down this road. All this press does NOT look good on them, especially since they are held in extremely high regard in the gaming community.
