      Defense of the Ancients (DotA) is an action real-time strategy mod for the video game Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, based on the "Aeon of Strife" map for StarCraft. The objective of the scenario is for each team to destroy the opponents' Ancients, heavily guarded structures at opposing corners of the map. Players use powerful units known as heroes, and are assisted by allied heroes and AI-controlled fighters. As in role-playing games, players level up their heroes and use gold to buy equipment during the mission.

      It is still played frequently today worldwide, and has a large fanbase.

      many games have been based on this scenario, including:

      DoTA2, Heroes of Newerth, League of Legends, Bloodline Champions, and many more.

      This is an informal chat thread for players of the game to meet and talk =-)

      As silly as it may sound, I am quite happy to finally find out what "DotA" stands for. I know I could have googled it earlier but whatever. Thanks for making me a little bit wiser!
