    Dota 2 plays worse than the fucking warcraft 3 FT they copied, that's the problem.

    lawbreakers is a garage 10 man indie game then?

    Don't they get a small % of the sales?

    That's revenue, not profit, running servers is not cheap.



    Played classic dota for years, the meta was about kamikazing the enemy base since barracks going down mean NO MORE creeps spawn.

    Loved the tank, had siege mode like starcraft.
    The assassin was a massive cancer noob pick.

    Cliff "My shirt does not say cuck" Blezinga sort of fucked himself with the game because the game was intended to be F2P which was then backpedaled into pay to play and it just declined from there. Too late to make it F2P now too as it's universally known as that game that bombed made by the guy that did the war gears and that's not a rep you will recover from.
    Still, the free weekend boosted it's playerbase from 50 to 100, badass!

    I doubt servers cost over 1 million dollars to run for 1 month.
    And no, the dota 2 game plays better than the w3 map.

    You're fucking retarded if you don't think they're rolling in cash from DOTA 2. What exactly are you basing your assumptions about it's profitability on?

    LMAO Nexon of all people trying to lampshade the underwhelming sales and pressence of the game when it was their own fucking job for it to develop otherwise.

    They're just trying to not hurt Cliff's feelings by giving an empty excuse

    They're so fucking lazy they can't even be arsed into shoehorning it into a fleece f2p system. Good riddance, get fucked Cliff. This is what you get for going full popamole and leaving UT in the dust.

    Blizzard, the king of popamole, pisses on your corpse and laughs.

    Me too. I guess I'm surprised they clung on for this long. Must have been fucking humiliating

    Pretty shitty of them to wait until the very end of Q1 to announce they aren't going to do fuckall of what they announced. Did nor said absolutely nothing until it was overdue.

    Oh please, Epic has more people watching Fortnite on Twitch than OW, HS, WoW and HotS combined.
    Pretty ironic.

    Fortnite has nothing to do with Cliff. Notice I didn't say Epic.
