Dear ToB

Postby SubNoize » Sun Aug 22, 2010 5:45 pm

Joined up to say..

PUUHHHH LEAASSEEEE make TOB for SC2..

TOB was and still is the most enjoyable out of AOEN,DOTA,HON,LOL (the new stupid sc2 ports don't come close)

IceFrog won't be touching it since he is at VALVe now.

Basically everything is here for the taking, TOB is the most enjoyable of the MOBA's

WC3 was ruined by DOTA, it was easy to find a game of TOB in the beginning but then it turned to shit.

So basically i'm just a fan that hopes you keep up the good work.

I'm going to stick to calling them AOS till the end of days, even if it makes me look like a cooky grandpa.

O, and I still think that the original DOTA by Eul (ROC) was the best of its type, at that time. Shit had custom heroes, man! Different spells! Heck it even had guys chucking spears and breathing fire! Most memorable of all, though, they bad Blink before Blizzard did. On the Demon Hunter, no less.

Does anyone actually still have a playable copy of that? Is that downloadable and playable somewhere? I'd love to play that for nostalgia's sake.

Yeah but you couldn't control where you blinked to. It was Mirror Image set to create zero images.

No, I'm pretty sure the Demon Hunter had a Mass Teleport spell, instant, small range, and just for him. The only way that it was different from blink is that instead of blinking and then running if you targeted beyond your range, he ran untill he got in range and then blinked, which makes sense if you keep in mind it was basicly mass teleport.

I remember when I first played TFT that I couldn't get used to this and actually recreated the "old" blink, because I couldn't stand not excactly blinking to my targeted location if my target was out of range.

That Mirror Image spell you mentioned was from an earlier version, on a different hero.

Rift was so great on the dota terrain, it made managing blinking up and down cliffs a loooot easyer.

The original DotA, on the Anti-Mage, which used the DH model.

Yeah they improved that spell to be based off mass teleport. It was called Rift, and the character called mage-slayer, demonhunter model.

It's been a while, but I think they still play dota on ROC. Someone tried to make an allstars-ish version (dota renew) that was gaining interest. Ugh.

The ROC dota community is fairly closed. The guys who insisted on playing TOB N while the rest of us were playing O reminded me of them, in a way.

Just looked and there were a few games being hosted. A 3.76d and a 3.82e, IIRC.

Well yeah it was the best, relative to its time and place. Now its not, now I prefer Tides of Blood, either N or O would do. And obviously since I am a bit vane, I prefer B&B too.

And yeah I prefer playing Starcraft II and board games, too.
