While some people love Heroes of Newerth for its flashy graphics, some DotA players fear that DotA 2 will turn out the same.
So far, there is no public beta available, so we have no idea which direction DotA 2’s graphics is heading. However, it is nice to know that IceFrog’s priority is “making sure players can quickly and easily tell what’s happening on the screen at all times”. It’s also reassuring to know that just like DotA, development of DotA 2 will be an ongoing and continuous process.
What I do hope is for users to be able to select the level of graphics, as one can do on Warcraft 3. Besides, enabling people with lower PC specs to play DotA 2, people can choose the suitable graphics level for their own preference.
Which setting would you put it on?
