  • Why aren't terrorblade and antimage brothers?

    There already are (unused) voice lines that mention it http://hydra-media.cursecdn.com/dota...brother_01.mp3 In wc3 Magina and him where brothers, but in the change to dota 2 "terrorblade the soulkeeper" was changed to "terrorblade the demon marauder" and "Magina the Anti-Mage" to just "antimage".

    Does Blizzard own copyrights on brotherhood?

    Because Valve decided they weren't going to be. The less of original lore remains, the better. Or are you people missing the hot spider sex between Nerubian Assassin and Broodmother, too?
    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

      Because Terrorblade is a demon, and Antimage is a human?
      Possible solution to foreigners issue

        Geez, it's not like he was a human before the whole ordeal.

          Which isn't stated anywhere, making it unfounded speculation at best.

            I don't really understand those people who say that Dota 2 should copy Dota 1 lore. Dota 1's lore is a mess, to be honest.

              Terrorblade is Magina.

              Let that sink in a bit.

                Because they aren't. Earth-shattering revelation, I know.

                  Dota 1 have good conections between heroes.

                  About the topic, I think the only thing they should've maintened from Dota 1 lore is the Magina-Terrorblade brotherhood. It's basically the only lore I-don't-give-a-fuck-to-lore players knew and widely broadcast.

                    Well that was only because they had the same character as their original model; Illidan, one normal and one with his demony stuff.

                    Regardless, I think it's important for Valve to distance themselves from the original DotA as much as possible. Use it as a reference point and nothing else; that way, the lore of Dota 2 stands more as its own beast.

                    Also Magina isn't actually Anti-Mage's name any more, last I checked. Probably because it's such a stupid name. Magina.
                    Seriously.
                    MAGINA.

                      Dota 1 was trying to tie characters from different IPs together, but it didn't work well. They also fucked Warcraft lore pretty hard in the proccess(and I'm sure the lores of other IPs as well).

                      Yeah, though Darchrow isn't a lot better.

                      So yeah, to be honest, I like Dota 2 lore more than Dota 1. I'm a fan of Warcraft lore and I know a lot about it, but Dota 1 has almost nothing to do with it, and when it tries to, it usualy fucks it up.

                        Newsflash - that one is gone as well. Although I stand by the Dota 1 lore point. It was... not something any living creature should ever have concieved.

                          I know, that's what I why I added it there. And I honestly like Enigma a lot more without name.

                            Many people get confused because of warcraft. The thing is Valve had to change a lot of stuff including character lore and models because they're copyrighted. If only blizzard would give god damn permission to use to valve Dota 2 would be closer to what we wanted to be from start.

                              At least it isn't one letter away from generating lots of juvenile chuckles...
