DotA 2 – Interview with Valve’s Erik Johnson

Lee talks to Erik Johnson from Valve, the Senior Project Manager on Defense of the Ancients 2 about building a sequel to a game that started off as a mod, e-sports, balancing out the heroes and the possibility of a DotA hat shop.  As well as that, we also have some Gamescom 2011 DotA 2 t-shirt double packs to give away, including the limited edition tournament shirt, a character shirt and DotA 2 lanyard.

Don’t expect the prizes to be sent off until we’re back in the UK… bigger fish to fry.

    Great job with the interview, Lee. :D
    Questions were in depth and knowledgeable, and that helped me a lot considering I’d never even heard of the games before Valve announced the second one. Should be a really interesting title when it hits the shelves, but I’ll be looking forward to finding out more!
