Dota Classic

This is the recreation of the very first Dota - the eul Version. Before Allstars, before Dota 2, this was it. Experience for yourself how it all started!

Did you know that in the original game, heroes were tied to their faction? That's the reason why dire and radiant look different today, even though they use the same heroes. Did you know that Riki and Techies were derived from the same hero? Did you know that you could send gold to other players and that the Gem of True Sight was originally a dog?!

Find out how the whole Dota craze started!

All the classic mechanics, items and heroes from the Warcraft III eul ROC Dota were painstakingly ported to make the classic game come alive in all its glory.

Experience for yourself the birth of a genre - but this time in HD!

*All classic heroes ported
*All classic spells, items and the old layout!
*All items fully shareable between the players
*Killing a barracks stops the respective production
*Secret river shop
*Morbazan (secret quest)
*The classic vendor-based shop system
*Different lane creeps for each side
*Special exclusive items tied to dire/radiant
*Warcraft 3-like corpse system to make the undead-spells work
*Jungle creeps have the same strength as in the original
*Hero-selection tied to factions
*Gold-transfer between players
*Based on eul ROC Dota 3.76d

Huge thanks to the following projects, templates and libraries: Dotacraft by MNoya, Dota 2 Spell Library, Barebones template and library by BMD, CustomHeroSelection template by Perryvw and for everyone else involved in them! It wouldn't have been possible without you.

Huge thanks to all beta testers, especially Silvos, wiLco, Tzieph and BjiKo.

Very special thanks to BMD for his contributions regarding the shop system.

The original Dota <3

I've been looking for this for a while and I'm glad someone took the time to put this together. Awesome job.

@GDS: I have updated that. Thanks for the notification though.

You should get around to updating stat-collection. Valve renamed the CreateHTTPRequest function to CreateHTTPRequestScriptVM, so that most mods that call it crash, and none of them will be recording stats. It's been almost 7days now. We sent an email to the devs that registered on the site.

никто не играет(подписано 7к тел) хотя идея и реализация прикольные - поиграть в ту самую доту еула до жабки. Герои тьмы играют только за тьму, света соответственно за свет, уникальные артефакты для сторон, в общем прикольная версия жаль чт онарод не оценил
