A General Overview of DotA

miranaDotA is an acronym of Defense of the Ancients, which is a modified “AoS”-style that was created for Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. DotA is a modified version of the map Aeon of Strife (AoS) from Starcraft: Broodwar. In Defense of the Ancients, two AI-controlled armies, the Scourge and the Sentinel fight against each other, led by player-controlled hero units. Before the play on Battle.net, players are strongly recommended to play on specifically created AI map against the computer. Sentinel vs. Scourge The Scourge is fighting to defend the Frozen Throne and the Sentinel is fighting to defend the Tree of Ancients. There are three units, namely melee, ranged, and siege, that the player’s armies comprise of. The Druids of the Talons, Glaive Throwers, and Treants are the units on the Sentinel side. Ghouls, Meat Wagons, and Necromancers are the units on the Scourge side. Early on, these units are weak, but over time, they become more powerful.
