For our inaugural Developers Blog Entry, we bring you what you need to know about DotA, Realm of the Titans, and our upcoming events.
What is DotA and MOBA?
DotA (pronounced DOTE-uh) stands for Defense of the Ancients. It was originally released as a custom scenario within the Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos RTS game in early 2003. The mod, in which two teams of 5 players each begin at opposing corners and must battle across a dynamic map to destroy the enemy structure, grew so popular that it eventually spawned its own RTS PvP sub-genre of DotA-inspired games. Follow-ups to the original DotA include League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth.

Yes, yes, I know the genre’s unique history. What makes ROTT so much better?
The industry veteran developers of ROTT learned a lot from the wins and fails of League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth. The talented folks at SG-TY made sure to resurrect such old-school DotA features as the popular “deny” tactic, while still creating an authentically new experience. Realm of the Titans delivers freshness to the genre with advanced matchmaking, unique map control points, and a new crop of beefed up heroes to play. We will bring you a special hero showcase for each of the first playable characters in the coming weeks, beginning next week!
Plus ROTT will be published by us, so you’ll get the same amazing customer service you’ve come to expect from Aeria Games along with passionate community support from 15 million members dedicated gamers.
