Stopped playing this as I got tired of the community, went back to HoN but this time midwars only... at least for now. Less annoying players and oh my god have I missed concede.

 

imo HoN has(had? I haven't played it in a while) the best gameplay and clearest visuals out of the major 3.

 

I miss my little bro cthulhuphant :(

I think all mid is what I was looking for for a long time. It's basically more or less deathmatch with a set amount of skills. If I could I'd probably take an ability draft version of it (or a version that allows hero clones) for the most fun. After 7 years of Dota there really isn't much left to explore in terms of depth, so short and fun matches are the way to go.

This is the kind of thing that WC3 did so well and from where DotA spawns originally, mods!

 

There was team tower defence, there was also hero line wars which was very linear and you could "build" units with money you got from performance (like dota) which were then sent to your enemy's base wihch was quite good

 

BUT

 

there was also pudge wars... you have not lived until you have played pudge wars

 

I would love it if they opened up dota2 to be modded to allow whole sub-genres of gametypes and fun!

I googled for "Pudge Wars" to find out what it is all about and noticed that a version exists for DotA2: http://d2pudgewars.com/

The source 2/gamemodes update is next year.  Haven't kept up with the mod scene, I hope some people have made some crazy shit.

New interface is looking 2015 as fuck.  FMV background, light/glowy sarif fonts, simplistic icons, all around dark theme, Microsoft style tiles...

Really though, I'm super pumped about the update.  It might just get me back into Dota.  Also source 2 oh my god i want it
