Defense of the Ancients (DotA) is an action real-time strategy mod for the video game Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, based on the "Aeon of Strife" map for StarCraft. The objective of the scenario is for each team to destroy the opponents' Ancients, heavily guarded structures at opposing corners of the map. Players use powerful units known as heroes, and are assisted by allied heroes and AI-controlled fighters. As in role-playing games, players level up their heroes and use gold to buy equipment during the mission.

The scenario was developed with the "World Editor" of Reign of Chaos, and was updated upon the release of its expansion, The Frozen Throne. There have been many variations of the original concept; the most popular being DotA Allstars, which eventually was simplified to DotA with the release of version 6.68. This specific scenario has been maintained by several authors during development, the latest of whom being the anonymous developer known as "IceFrog" developing the game since 2005.

Since its original release, DotA has become a feature at several worldwide tournaments, including Blizzard Entertainment's BlizzCon and the Asian World Cyber Games, as well as the Cyberathlete Amateur and CyberEvolution leagues; in a 2008 article of video game industry website Gamasutra, the article's author claimed that "DotA is likely the most popular and most-discussed free, non-supported game mod in the world". Valve Corporation is currently developing a stand-alone sequel, Dota 2.

DotA pits two teams of players against each other: the Sentinel and the Scourge. Players on the Sentinel team are based at the southwest corner of the map, and those on the Scourge team are based at the northeast corner. Each base is defended by towers and waves of units which guard the main paths leading to their base. In the center of…...

Ang layunin sa larong ito ay sirain ang mga imprastruktura sa kampo ng kalaban. Ang bawat manlalaro ay mayroong katumbas na “yunit” na kinokontrol.

Dota Addiction

...My case is slightly the same with the guy in the mentioned link, though I got over my Dota's addiction. Here are some backgrounds. I grew up in rural Laos to poor parents. When I was little, my father was drinking every single day that my mother or his cousins must went out to find him and brought him home. If he had made himself home, there would have been a fight/argument between my mother and him. When I was 10, my father got over his drinking problems, I have a little sister, and my family were in good term financially. However, one day my mother was scammed by her friends. That was a lot of money by Laotian's standard. One year later, I was 14, my mother got a stroke and was subconscious for more than a week. Despite all the odds, she got over it and recovered in 3 years. I was in high school doing really well. Many of my friends were addicted to games but I was not. Fast forward a couple of years, I was in an OK university (by Laotian's standard). I was on top. Then my mother got a second stroke, this time she was subconscious for 2 months. Where I visited her, she was terribly thin. I touched her arm hopelessly. I remembered the piteous look of a nurse. She got over it this time too. To this day, she can't speak and can’t control half of her body but her mental condition is extremely good. She remembers everything and she can write using her left hand....

Impact of Dota

...SYNTHESIS AND RELEVANCE OF THE REVIEW A general synthetic route to two DOTA-linked N-Fmoc amino acids (DOTA-F and DOTA-K) is described that allows insertion of DOTA at any endo-position within a peptide sequence. Three model pentapeptides were prepared to test the general utility of these derivatives in solid-phase peptide synthesis. Both DOTA derivatives reacted smoothly by means of standard HBTU activation chemistry to the point of insertion of the DOTA amino acid, but extension of the peptide chain beyond the DOTA-amino acid insertion required the use of pre-activated C-pentafluorophenyl ester N-alpha-Fmoc amino acids. Three Gal-80 binding peptides (12-mers) were then prepared by using this methodology with DOTA positioned either at the N terminus or at one of two different internal positions;the binding of the resulting GdDOTA-12-mers to Gal-80 were compared. The methodology described here allows versatile, controlled introduction of DOTA into any location within a peptide sequence. This provides a potential method for the screening of libraries of DOTA-linked peptides for optimal targeting properties This report describes the synthesis and structural characterization of the indium complex of 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7,10-tetraacetic acid mono(p-aminoanilide) (DOTA-AA), a model compound for 111In-labeled DOTA-biomolecule conjugates. In(DOTA-AA) was prepared by reacting DOTA-AA with 1 equiv of InCl3 in 0.5 M ammonium acetate buffer (pH ∼ 6). It was......
