And on the gamplay, valve made dota 2 the same as dota. On the other hand, riot made an entire new type of gameplay from the same concept, and that my friend is called innovation.
They tried to make the heroes recognizable to people that transitioned. But at the same time, original. Take a look at Rubick in both games and tell me it's a remake of WC3 designs.
There's a thin line between tribute and ripoff, this one crosses it.
