    Its almost exactly the same. Most of the heroes are ported over (with some new ones), and most of the items are exactly the same. The classic map is in, plus a few others. Its only beta right now, but i haven't looked back. The graphics are much better, while not being too system intensive (I can't run Demigod, but i run this on all high settings).

    Also, the multiplayer system is WAY better than BNet. Games are hosted server side, so if the host leaves the game continues. If you disconnect from game, you can still reconnect and keep playing.

    If you like DoTA, this is where its at.

    its not open beta, but i was given 3 invites so you may be able to find one around. I think they have a facebook group that when it hits 30,000 everyone gets a key. you might also try asking on forums.

    You are a god among men, sir. Played last night for a good few hours.

    Took a while to get used to the buttons (Q W E S attacks, meh) but couldnt stop playing. Beautifully done. Will be interesting to see how it finishes up.

    Only thing I didnt like was the seeming disadvantage of straight melee in the shoot and run tactic that "casters" have.

    Great DOTA port/refacing. If its your thing, they did a great job with this. Sadly, DOTA and such is too one-dimensional for me. Wont hold my interest until the barren waste that is 2009 gaming is gone.
