Dota 2 was a fantastic game but for some reason, probably the greed of appealing to a wider audience, the devs decided to copy elements from League of Legends and Heroes of the Storm. It's great an all that they tried to "improve" the game, but they fail to understand why people choose to play Dota 2 over the others.
League of Legends is distinct enough to stand on it's own and have it's fans. Heroes of the Storm is distinct enough to have it's own fans. Dota 2 WAS distinct enough to have it's own fans. People will always have a favourite flavour of MOBA, just like people have their favourite flavour of icecream.
Now after 7.00 though, Dota 2 looks more like the rest, it's lost part of it's distinction and it's became a weaker game looking more like an amalgamation of the others. Our vanilla Dota that we've all enjoyed for years has been discontinued and is replaced with this neopolitan stuff.
I just can't enjoy this game anymore, the changes are too far from what that glorious golden heart of Dota was and the garbage new HUD doesn't help. It's got way less information, it takes longer to see it, plus important information like ♥♥♥♥ing health and mana is further away from where your eyes rest. Terrible.
So great were the map changes that even the Dota 2 logo isn't even accurate anymore, it used to represent the two ancients with the river in between, now it needs that Baron Roshan island in the middle.
