      It's not really about Dota 2 lore.
      But it's pretty unwise to say that lore presented to us in World of Warcraft isn't a part of Warcraft lore. Even I don't like lore of some of the older expansions, I still accept it as canonical.
      Possible solution to foreigners issue
      In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.

          I never really played WC3 multiplayer. I just did the campaigns and (I think) one or two pub matches, then I dropped it and now it's lost to me forever because I'm a Mac user and it's from before the switch to Intel so now it won't run anymore good God I was a fool then.
