DotA stands for Defence of the Ancients. Though was origonally created by Eul for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, it was then brought into The Frozen Throne, and slowly became the most popular WCIII Custom map out there.
Right now, Icefrog has created DotA Allstars, the best and newest versions of DotA.
Though DotA is popular, about half the people on B.net like it, and half the others don't.
The game used to be awesome, but once ideas were being stolen from other maps, and all the players became 10 year old "n00bs" some people dislike it.
The majority of people who don't like it are mappers. Why, may you ask? Well, it's either because:
1) DotA stole their ideas
2) DotA whipes out any chance of their maps ever getting popular.
Though DotA is no longer at it's peek. DotA is slowing being played less and less, but very slowly.
That is because it does not change enough. You can play the map only so many times before it eventually has to get boring.
If you have any comments about this, simply post your own definition ^_^
"Let's go play DotA!"
Defence of the Ancients
A Warcraft 3 map originally made by a guy calling himself Eul, who left the map to be edited by others.
The flow of new stuff coming to the latest, and most popular version of DotA, DotA Allstars has been rather slow lately, but still many people play this map, both in public games and in private clan games. It is not hard to find a DotA game with players of your own skill level.
What more can be said about DotA is that the word pawned is used in a way that makes people think that it's the same as pwnd, meaning owned. The word pwnd hardly comes from DotA though. Also shorts, like GG (meaning Good Game) and B (meaing pull back) are overused by some players.
DotA is fun, if you play it with the right person/people.
However, many people play DotA to annoy people that really want to play the map and have fun.
"An enemy has picked Goblin Techies"
Techies buy 6 Ironwood Branches and run to the middle of the map, dropping all of them. Then he runs towards the closest enemy tower, blowing himself up.
Player with Techies writes: "GG i leave, DotA is for n00bs!"
Player with Techies leaves the game.

EARLY JAMAICAN CULTURE
To fully understand the origins of ska and trace its unique musical elements we must understand some important parts of Jamaican history. The island of Jamaica was first visited by Europeans in 1494 by Columbus. The British won the right to colonize and began shipping slaves from the west coast of Africa to work on newly set up plantations. By 1807 there were over two million Africans in Jamaica working on English plantations in the most brutal systems of slavery in the world.
The slaves tried hard to hold on to their African philosophy and established their own system of beliefs and values in their slave communities. Some forms of African music, such as the Burru were allowed by the white masters who believed it would help the slaves to work faster. At times the slave musicians were also called upon to entertain the white masters. The type of entertainment provided by the slave musicians followed a carnival tradition and allowed the oppressed performers to dress and act like kings, queens, lords and ladies for the amusement of the white masters. In the 1960's this tradition was continued by performers who adopted royal t...
