Dota 2 Gameplay
There have been many questions about the Valve’s impact to DotA’s gameplay. Nowdays many games rely merely on the graphics and mechanics so it is no coincidence that many are worried about the DotA’s gameplay.
For now we can only give a sure answer from the Dota 2 official website’s Q&A:
Quoting:Significant changes would not necessarily make it a better game. There are countless features we are building around the game that will make the experience a much better one. The gameplay itself, though, has always evolved step by step, and it will continue with that methodology. We consider this a long term project, in the same way DotA has always been. We want to provide a quality experience and not just change for the sake of change. You’ll naturally see additions and improvements to the game as time passes, but it would be a natural progression aimed at improving the game for the players and not for other arbitrary reasons. Valve and I strongly believe that the player focused development process the game has gone through is what will allow us to continue making the best decisions with regards to where we spend our development time.
We think that Valve realized that there is no need to intervene with DotA’s gameplay. More will be known soon.
