There's a lot of variety in Dota....then look at regular WC3 which has 4 races locked into their inflexible build orders and hero choices. It's always Grunts, Walkers, Raiders, or DH, Bears, Dryads, or Fiends Fiends Fiends Fiends Fiends.

Except for when there is archers/huntress, warden, beastmaster, talons, or ghouls/gargs, destro pushes, not to mention that whole race you chose not to mention, you know human? I agree that or has only one inflexible bo and hero choice though, but having a win button with bm imba that is pretty logical, arguably if bm wasnt broken or would have different strategies as well.

Anyway, as for why people play dota over wc3 thats just because they like it better, as for why that is, well basically it removes all the "hassle" of the rts aspect to focus solely on hero leveling and combat so it is more action packed, and it also allows for more direct teamwork and competitive team battles, as opposed to wc3 where the biggest scene is 1v1.

Intelligence and respect are all it takes to get along fine. Not a bad trade off, huh?

Short term satisfaction in killing another player's hero. The end of the game really isn't that important if you had a good record.

In the regular game, you have to wait till the end before you know who is going to win.

Despite having a lot of common elements, they're completely different games. It's like asking why some people play Call of Duty over World of Warcraft.

Variety in dota? Same map. Same creeps. Same path. Same goal. Yea, definitely
