Playing this game also triggers the player to lose his/her temper and values. Why?

It simply because of the different languages used during the game or what we called "Trash talks". Trash talks such as foul languages can really lose their temper and values. As a result, the both sides will fight against each other. Gamble is also present in this game, the highest bet is 5,000 pesos and the lowest is 300 pesos. Again, money for them is not that important anymore. Many players says that "Dota is the best past time ever," so it's OK for them to waste their money. Due to playing, eating is irrelevant; the satisfaction they get from playing is the same as the satisfaction they get from eating. As a result, the body's immune systems are getting weaker and now expose the different viruses and diseases. All in all, Dota really affects the life style of the youth who are in to this game, although it has one good benefit, but it corrupts the mind and the way the youth think. It also weakened the body system, money and moral values were not given importance because of this game. There are many students and even some young professional are addicted to Defense of the Ancients or DOTA. This is a kind of computer games that can be played by many players and is one of the most popular games to young students. Many students get addicted to this game and they even long hours inside the computer shop just playing this kind of game. There are studies that getting addicted in playing computer games affects their studies and this is the cause why they are lying to their parents that they need extra money for their school project but the truth is they are just using the money to rent a computer where they can play DotA with their classmates. Sometimes in order to make the game exciting, they have a deal to pay those who won the game so it becomes already a form of gambling. When time spent on the computer, playing DotA games or cruising the internet reaches a point that it harms a child's or adult's family and social relationships, or disrupts school or work life, that person maybe caught in a cycle of addiction. Like other addictions, DotA game has replaced friends and family as the source of a person, emotional life. Increasingly, to feel good, the addicted person spends more time playing video games or searching the internet. by: Engr. Hanz Clarence Clarin

The two teams ancients are heavily guarded structures at opposing corners of the map. Players use powerful units known as heroes, and are assisted by allied heroes and AI (Artificial Intelligence)-controlled fighters called creeps. As in role-playing games, players level up their hero and use gold to buy equipment during the mission.

DOTA pits two teams of players against each other: the Sentinel and the Scourge. Players on the Sentinel team are based at the southwest corner of the map, and those on the Scourge team are based at the northeast corner. Each base is defended by towers and waves of units which guard the main paths leading to their base. In the center of each base is the "Ancient", a building that must be destroyed to win the game. Each human player controls one hero, a powerful unit with unique abilities. In DotA, players on each side choose one of 110 heroes, each with different abilities and tactical advantages over other heroes. The scenario is highly team-oriented; it is difficult for one player to carry the team to victory alone. Defense of the Ancients allows up to ten players in a five-versus-five format and an additional two slots for referees or observers, often with an equal number of players on each side. Because the gameplay revolves around strengthening individual heroes, it does not require one to focus on resource management and base-building, unlike most traditional real-time strategy games. Killing computer-controlled or neutral units earns the player experience points; when enough experience is accumulated, the player gains a level. Leveling upimproves the hero's toughness and the damage they can inflict, and allows players to upgrade their spells or skills. In addition to accumulating experience, players also manage a single resource: gold. The typical resource-gathering of Warcraft III is replaced by a combat-oriented money system; in addition to a small periodic income, heroes earn gold by killing hostile units, base structures, and enemy heroes. This has caused emphasis on a technique called "lasthitting," which is when the player attacks a hostile unit when "its hit points are low enough to kill it with one blow". Using gold, players buy items to strengthen their hero and gain abilities; certain items can be combined with recipes to create more powerful items. Buying items that suit one's hero is an important tactical element of the mod. Item choice also affects play style, as any given item may increase one statistic while leaving another unchanged. DotA offers a variety of game modes, selected by the game host at the beginning of the match. The game modes dictate the difficulty of the scenario, as well as whether people can choose their hero or are assigned one randomly. Many game modes can be combined, allowing more flexible options.

1. A Time Killer: Boredom is the most common problem of most people today. Dota can consume a lot of time without you even noticing it. You'll just say "wtf I'm late!" after the game. 2. Non-exhausting Game: Unlike Basketball or other physical sports, you can play Dota 'til you can still manage to sit, look at the monitor, use mouse and keyboard, and think. Yes, using your mind is also tiring but it'll take an average of 3 games before you'd want to take a rest. 3. Fame Source: Most players want to be the best in this game to gain fame which I find natural but technically nonsense. I have to admit that thirst for fame drove me to practice and improve my game. After getting the fame I wanted, I asked myself "Now what?". For players who don't plan on having Dota as their profession, Fame isn't that important. 4. Team Work Game: When we were kids we already love having team battles. That's why a lot of team sports came up and multi-player computer games have been invented. Playing with team mates is more addicting than playing alone. 5. Tranquilizing: Dota makes you forget your problems and make you think of simpler problem - how to win. 6. Non-violent war: We love wars. That's why there are shows like Wrestling, UFC, Action Films, etc. Dota is a chance to engage in wars safely. We can fight all day long and just stand up from our computer without even having a scratch. 7. Topic Provider: Dota is a great topic provider. That's why you talk about it while hanging out with your dota buddies. That's why there are forums and blogs like this. We love chatting and Dota is a great topic to talk about. 8. Sweet Sound Effects: "Rampage!!!" - How sweet that sound is? This sound effect is unconsciously a source of self-affirmation. Everyone loves to be praised and accepted. Dota can be a source of this. 9. Easy to Play: Survey shows that Dota is played by more people than other strategy games like Starcraft. One of the reason is it's simplicity. You only have to control one hero - a great news for people who are not into doing micros. 10. Total Freedom: In Dota, you have all the freedom to do anything you wish. You can gank, farm, lane top, lane mid, lane bot, buy items you wish, you can even annoy your team mates if you wish. It is like an alternative for people who doesn't that much freedom in their real lives.

11. Mind Exercise: Intelligent people love exercising their minds. This is the reason why crossword puzzles, Rubic's cube, and other mind games are created. Dota also have this feature needing analysis, prediction and decision making. 12. Physically safe: People care about their safety. In my case, I don't jump that much in Basketball because I hate landing on another player's foot and causing my ankles to be sprained. I don't want to try Rugby, Boxing, UFC and other dangerous sports because I care about my safety. Dota, on the other hand, doesn't offer dangerous injury. Eye problems may occur though but it's still avoidable. Just give your time proper rest and use low radiation monitors. 13. Game Variations: Every game is different. You buy different items, you lane against different opponents, you have different combos, you pick different heroes, you plan different attacks, etc. Variation is important to stay addicted on something. Nobody would want to do same things over and over again. 14. Source of Money: Money is becoming the goal of every humans. Poker won't be popular if you can't gain money from it. Dota have been used for betting games and tournaments; obviously, money is involved. 15. Ability to feel like having supernatural skills: We all love to have supernatural skills. In Dota, we have it. Just pick the hero that possess the skill you want. You want to teleport? You want to be invisible? Do you want to cast lightning on a person? It's all in Dota Allstars. 16. Tool for anger discharge: Dota can be the place where you release your anger. You can pick a killer hero, make it monster-like, then kill everyone you see. 17. Varieties of Skills to improve at: You can improve at farming, ganking, supporting, killing, teamwork, using different heroes, combos, etc. These are the things that will cause you to be practicing and improving. More skills learned means more addiction. More skills to be learned also means more addiction. 18. Character's Appearance: Dota Characters' appearances are made with great imagination. Dota Fan arts spread in the internet showing their appreciation in the Heroes' appearances. Cool arts and animations add to the addicting potion of this game. 19. Constant Map Improvement: Just when you learned enough strategies for you to be called a Dota genius, here comes another new map with new items and heroes. Now, your learned strategies need upgrade. You need to study, try and analyze new stuffs again making you more into the game. 20. Professional Gamers as Inspiration: Watching pro dota gamers execute strategies perfectly make you want to be like them. You will be training more after

getting inspired by these Pro Dota players and teams. 21. Peer Pressure: Right when you don't feel like playing, here comes a Dota Buddy saying: "It's weekend let's play!" or while you're at home, you got a "Buzz!!" followed by the word "rak". How can you ever forget playing if these peer temptations are all around you? 22. Game illusion: While playing Dota, the map becomes your world and your hero becomes you. Feeling a different world which is more fun and breath-taking is way better than your old room with old stuffs. When the game's world is experienced, your mind would be constantly searching for that more pleasurable world making you really addicted. 23. It's haunting: This game haunts you. While you're in your classroom, you kept on thinking why you lost or how great your game was. You would then be thinking of playing Dota as soon as you arrive at the computer shop or at home. You would also think of what hero you would play or what play style you're going to have. 24. Winning Feels Good: Yup, feeling good is really addicting. 25. Losing makes you thirsty to win: On the other hand, losing is still addicting because you become more urge to have that wonderful feeling of winning. 26. No height or other physical disadvantage: In basketball you cannot have a team composed of 5 short players. In Rugby, you should be muscular. In Dota, you can be as thin and short as you want and still own everyone. 27. A balanced game: Since banning was introduced in Dota Allstars, I considered it to be a balanced game. Having a balanced game, you wouldn't think of quitting while whining "unfair!". 28. A vast number of strategies: More strategies means more trial and errors. More trial and errors means more games. "More games" means more game illusions. More game illusions means more chance to be trapped in the world of Dota. 29. Merely being a Strategy Game is addicting: Strategy games are so fun because it offers unpredictability. 30. No age limit: Yup, no age limit is a cause of Dota Addiction. Many players should be practicing their professions in real life but they are still stuck in Dota world. 31. Opportunity to become a Hero: It is so pleasurable to be feel like a hero. It is like hitting a buzzer beater in a basketball game or saving a kid from getting hit by a car. The appreciation is simply awesome. Self-esteem boosts quickly and exponentially with this. http://www.itsme-gaming.com/2011/03/31-reasons-why-dota-is-addicting.html

DOTA (Defense Of The Ancients) A very popular computer game for a teenager nowadays and truly gives some benefits like fast typing, mental alertness, improving strategies and team participation. But some teenagers were mostly acquiring this game`s disadvantages that keeps this teenagers away from education. So for me, I would rather take education than this bad influence. First, in terms of money, some teenager students spend more money from their allowance in playing DOTA instead of paying tuition and for buying such projects. Furthermore, many of them use it for placing bets on a team whether they will win or not, in other words Gambling and their other way of playing which money were involved. Next, as I observed in this game it could also give problems in our eyes because DOTA has very high qualities in color, brightness and other video parts, but even though we could adjust it doesn`t mean we can avoid such problems in terms of sight like this so-called Far-sighted or Near-sighted and results us with an eyeglass. And the last is that DOTA could sometimes cause addictedness and may result in failing grades, like my younger brother that spend too much money playing this game instead of studying hard and keep on saving his allowance. But as you know, my younger brother`s experiencing nowadays is what I just I had in my high school life, that`s why I almost fail some of my grades because of thinking about how to win always in that game and rather minding my failing grades. And after 2 years, I just realized that playing DOTA gives me nothing but being emptyhanded at all times..so I promise myself that I should lessen this game playing to avoid such bad influences that this disadvantages throws at me.
