I couldn't agree with Leartes more. I've been enjoying DotA for years and years (since before 5.84c), and for me the things I would most like to see are: 1. Better network code 2. Incentives for not being a dick 3. Ingame chat and hotkey setup 4. Graphics ... 100. "Innovation" Saying "DotA2" has no innovation is sort of strange to me, since there has been a lot of innovation over the years. It's a living game and has seen a lot of change. Just because the jump from Dota1 to Dota2 is small doesn't mean that it will be stagnate forever. Of course you're on your own if you don't like core mechanics like denying or whatever.
