Isn't this like the 8th time this particular trailer has been released?

It is quite simple, Valve had absolutely nothing to do with what made DotA great. So I see absolutely 0 reason why they should benefit from owning the TM.

FFS, as I noted a bunch of posts ago, they trademarked "DOTA". Exactly "DOTA". Not "DotA", not "Defense of the Ancients", but "DOTA". It's beyond retarded to be raging about that.

I had been wondering since this was first announced, what a worst case scenario would be. Is it possible that once the DOTA name becomes a Valve property, that Blizzard would be forced to pull all references to DOTA from WCIII and SC2(should any exist) in the custom game community? Talk about crapping on your heritage. =(
That's not how trademarks work.

Well now. This is an interesting turn. Im interested to see how this pans out. Ive always thought of Valve as a pretty community supportive company who picked up popular mods and made some folks dreams come true of turning a hobby into a paid living. I kind of assumed that was what was going on here until this post popped up.
Well, it is. Icefrog created the original DotA. Valve hired Icefrog.

Besides which, they didn't file a trademark for "Defense of the Ancients", they filed a trademark for "DOTA". To me that says "to be revealed clever acronym that recalls the original".

"additional character name changes for a fee."


Wow...charging for something simple, quick, easy, and obviously automated. Blizzard are becoming money whores. Just to change your name nowadays is going to cost you? Wtf is this world coming to? I understand they don't want people abusing it, but that's when you put CAPS on name changing. How about a 15-30 day name change period? Simple and FREE!!!

If RealID tells us anything it's that Blizzard doesn't want people changing names at all. They want you to be always identifiable, relatively anonymous internet nickname or not. They want you to keep the reputation associated with that name.

The only reason there's a name change service at all is because they know how much demand there is, from their WoW experience. The fee is to discourage you from using it.

From RPS:
Quintin: Oh itís fucking terrible. I reviewed it for a mag. Itís properly abysmal. Cyberpunky Gears of War with tedious level design, shoddy shooting and awkward mouse support. If we played it together we would never play a videogame together again.

Alec: That only makes me wanna play it more.

Tip seen at RPS- The free roam portion of the demo is limited to 10 mins, but you can freeze the timer with a little hex editing.

Open up the game's executable with a hex editor (eg. a free one like HxD), go to line 000F5380, and overwrite D9 56 4C, with 90 90 90.

Plus, these numbers are obscenely optimistic in what it counts as gaming hardware. Super-budget models only theoretically capable of gaming (and netbooks of all things) don't count!

Ah, but as the article points out, the dirty Brits passed on Starcraft 1, which never even broke top-40 in the UK, so it's not that amazing.

The industry is no longer the lovely place it was a decade ago and I don't think the gaming industry, by its very nature, fits well with a corporation mentality, too many passions, egos and volatility.

The what? Do you have some kind of evidence that a decade ago the games industry wasn't a place where the typical non-studio founder programmer worked 80 hour weeks for $40k a year?

To put it in perspective, the pre-orders alone mean Starcraft 2 has outsold every PC or console exclusive title of the last 5 years, with the exception of Wii Sports/Sports Resort/Wii Play/Wii Fit and Nintendogs.

Good point. MW2 wasn't an exclusive title. So SC2 pre-orders outsold Halo3? I have a feeling Sc2 is a 'long haul sales' type game that will sell well for much longer than the typical AAA game.
Ah, forgot about Halo 3, that's another exception, it had about 3 million in its first 2 weeks, so we'll see have to see what the Korean numbers say.

I guess that's good news for an RTS genre? My CE arrives tomorrow...can't wait to jump in.
Now I'm not trying to start a war here because I don't even own any of the latest consoles, but didn't Modern Warfare 2 have like 20 million preorders or something? Maybe I read something way out of line?
