In recent years, a series of MOBA mobile games have appeared and created a real fever in the gaming world. This is a fertile land and has a huge potential for exploitation, so many publishers want to occupy. That’s why the Riot Games story after more than 10 years of work League of Legends on PC, they announced it and gave it League of Legends: Speed of War at the testing stage, promising to launch as soon as possible.
The interesting thing here is that the Philippines which is famous for DOTA2 as “national game” is one of the places chosen to test League of Legends: Speed of War. The story that DOTA2 gamers dislike about League of Legends is no stranger, so when League of Legends: Speed of War appeared in this country, the “superior” community in this country will certainly be uncomfortable and react to moves. own.
Most notably, BLV KuyaNic, who has a great influence on the DOTA2 Philippines community, has broadcasted the livestream titled “Dota 2 Mobile Alma Test!” made people not from surprise. The most special thing here is the stream guy playing DOTA2 Mobile As a matter of fact, it also uses Invoker, a champion with an extremely complex set of skills, even this “mobile” version has all the features of Battle Pass TI10.
The game even runs extremely smoothly to make it hard to believe it’s true. Although “looks real” but the video of this guy KuyaNic can not catch the eye of the observant players. A lot of evidence shows that this is just a normal DOTA2 game, he just inserted the interface of the mobile game.
The first thing we can see most clearly is that in the video above there is no expression that KuyaNic click on the phone screen to control the hero. Meanwhile in other mobile games when livestreaming, actions such as moving champions and basic attacks are shown on the screen.
Moreover, in games like Lien Quan Mobile, for example, players cannot perform cancel animation skills, temporarily meaning to cancel animations using basic attacks and attacks. However, in the video above, we can see Invoker perform this skill continuously, very similar to using the S key on a normal keyboard, making it very difficult for people to believe that it is a mobile game.
When performing a basic attack in Mobile Alliance, there will be an animation showing that the player clicks the button
Meanwhile on KuyaNic’s stream, there was no such thing, there was no sign even that he was using the direction of the champion’s movement direction.
The second thing that makes people believe that this is a “trick” of the Filipino streamer is the error in the interface design. We can see that in the skill box in the video, there is a small line below to show the energy consumed. However, due to the Mobile interface, the skill box is a circle, not a square like in DOTA2, so it covers most of the 5 out of 125 energy consumed.
Remember that Valve is a very meticulous game maker, if they are real DOTA2 Mobile then there will not be such silly errors. This shows that this is just a handmade product of gamers.
The number 5 in the concealed energy interface is too crude to show that it is not a “genuine” product.
Gamers observently realize this guy is “acting” rather than playing the actual game
The live stream of this KuyaNic guy was done 3 days ago, which is just a few days after League of Legends: Express Battle was officially tested in the Philippines. It can be said that this is a move from the Philippines DOTA2 community that if we like, we also have our own mobile MOBA game, not need to run to LoL: What to do?
DOTA2 in the Philippines can be considered “national game”
However, the reality of DOTA2 Mobile’s appearance is very unlikely, this game has too many complex mechanisms and the game is played for a relatively long time. Meanwhile, the criteria of mobile games are simple, easy to understand and play as quickly as possible. Moreover, Valve also has no strength in the Mobile segment, so it is difficult for them to make mobile games.
Valve has the strength to make PC games, not mobile games
Perhaps the above video of BLV KuyaNic is only at the level of a “fanmade” product or some “khac” purpose only, but bringing DOTA2 to mobile is almost impossible.
