Literally not a single character is from Warcraft

You really need to participate in a house fire

Actually, at one time they were all from the Warcraft universe, but they were changed to avoid and IP licensing problems.

For example Thrall the Disruptor, who was obviously Thrall, perhaps the most recognizable character in the Warcraft universe, just became Disruptor. In addition to changing the names, they made small changes to the designs of the characters to makes them different from their dota1 counterparts. None of the characters really changed that much though. At first glance, they only have a different color scheme.

Blizzard was a fool for not acquiring the rights to dota.

Like most has been "bottom line businesses" today they only care about something after someone else gets rich off it. Otherwise it's "not economically viable".

And there is always a lawsuit involved because who really wants to be genuinely competitive?

Aside from the "dude riding a thing" theme. They did change him a bit.

I mean, yeah least changed would probably be like Pudge.
