DotA - thirty ... forty years from now, anyone?

It's been more than a year, perhaps two, since the last time I played DotA. If you don't know what DotA is, it's a game that make guys a better life partner.

There were times when I played DotA everyday with my friends over Hamachi network or NTU intranet.

I myself am now pursuing further study, hoping to get Master degree by the end of this semester.

My DotA partners?

One of them got married.
One of them got engaged.
One of them got promoted.
One of them got StarCraft.


Well, life sucks. Newton found it first and called it gravity. But that's not the point here. Recently, tgwinmg shared a video link on her facebook and made me think:



Maybe, just maybe. Thirty .. forty years from now ... one of us will bang the table, slamming the screenshot of our victory in front of the Ancient Tree, shouting "Let's play DotA!" . Despite one of us will have lousy hearing, we will pursue that dream. Dusting dust off our old PC, and re-calibrate our nVidia graphic cards and connect it to the future internet port of which its shape is still not yet invented now.

We will download a typer-shark deluxe to train our fingers movement. And Hamachi which will no longer be supported by its developer. Despite our Alzheimer and Parkinson, we will still be Godlike. Just like we used to, in our younger years. There we will stand for each other. In front of every towers, towards the Frozen Throne. Furion the Prophet. Bradwarden the Centaur Warchief. Nevermore the Shadow Fiend. Syllabear the Lone Druid. Claiming the lives of every creeps that stand in our way.

DotA,
For ordinary people with extraordinary hand-eye coordination.
