A collection of anecdotal information. Similar to data, a collection of factual information.

The plural of anecdote is not data, it is dota. Pronounced with a long "O" sound like go or no.

Collection of stories, understanding, impressions, ideas that lead one to have a belief of what the facts will be.

Information gathered from many internet sources giving numbers/figures/measurements that are similar for a given item, yet not recognized by the manufacturer of that item.

Information that can be used to estimate, or gives an impression of a trend, but is not factual data.
"Every one says that is a good place to get a 5 dollar meal." That is anecdotal information. Receipts from several meals is data. Many people saying they got a meal for about five dollars is Dota about the price of a meal there.

The manufacturer says that powder is not recommended for reloading that cartridge. Many posters on the internet are using a given amount of powder to reload that cartridge. Assembling all the information people post is Dota, not data.

A custom map for WC3 TFT that is far superior to the real WC3 game.

Two teams of 5 players each with a unique hero compete against each other in a PVP map control setting.

Since there are 80+ unique heroes to choose (or get randomly), there are literally thousands of combinations of which 5 heroes play against which other 5 heroes.

Add to this player skill levels, hero lane choices (map has 3 lanes (areas) to control), and various strategies of how to build up a given hero, and you get a game that has near-infinite replayability.

The game takes anywhere from 20-90 minutes, with good, even games usually lasting about 45 minutes. It is more common in "public" games for some players leaving the game early (especially when they are losing), thereby causing it to end prematurely due to one team being outnumbered.
