DotA 6vs6?

Well, I'd really like to make a DotA 6vs6. Is it possible with the current versions? The 6.5X's? I know it's been done before. I have a 6.38b version that has been modified to allow 12 players.

The way that one worked, was that orignally, it was 5vs5+2.
5 Sentinel
5 Scourge
2 Observers

The 2 observers were like referees, since DotA is a competitive game. But when I'm playing via LAN with my house friends, we don't really need the observer slots at all. I'd like to learn how to change those slots.

We've always got 11-12 people when we host a LAN, and when we play DotA, always a few have to sit out and wait for the next game. So if anyone has any information, it would greatly be appreciated! :)

Try the DotA forums.

Yeah, I've been there too. :)

I understand that this is a TOB forum, and I've noticed that you guys seem to despise DotA and anything to do with it. But I've tried bringing it up there, and it's like I'm trying to preach about the Devil to some group of catholics.

So hopefully, from one man to another, disregarding any gaming preferences and/or differences, I could get some help from you guys here. I was pointed in this direction because the community was said to be mature and intelligent.

The map already uses neutral slots for the computer players, so that part needs not to be done.

You change the two observer slots into player slots and put one in each team. You also have to go through the triggers and make sure they're properly handled as part of their respective team.
