The DotA Banlist’s Greatest Hits

Back in 2002, game developer Blizzard Entertainment gave the world another real-time strategy gem by the name of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. Believe it or not, there was Warcraft before World of Warcraft. And yes, it was a pretty damn big deal. At the time, Warcraft III was perhaps the most anticipated computer game in the history of the industry. Turned out it was a pretty fucking good video game. It won the hearts of critics, scored some Game of the Year swag, everything was peachy.

Unfortunately, there was a problem. After a handful of months with the game, people discovered that Warcraft III had a significant and serious flaw: Most human beings are terrible at video games and life in general. StarCraft players were enraged that their Six-Factory timing push didn’t work in Warcraft III and went back to playing StarCraft. That left real-time strategy newcomers to pick up the slack. Well, strategy games require the player to think. Thinking hurts the brain. Therefore, Warcraft III sucks. To make the most of their disappointing purchase, those players dabbled in the game’s robust custom game community and discovered Defense of the Ancients, a redux of StarCraft’s custom classic Aeon of Strife. It’s best surmised as “Warcraft III without the macromanagement, micromanagement, or a general need for motor skills.” Little surprise that this custom map became hugely popular. It became so popular that players required a remedy to deal with the pricks who grief-play, backstab, or have to deal with a family emergency. The Defense of the Ancients banlist (also known as the “shitlist”) was born.

It’s quite ingenius, actually. Through a combination of bots, scripting, and the requirement for all participants to possess a twenty-five-win icon on the Warcraft III ladder, Clan TDA was able to create and police a system of safeguards for their Defense of the Ancients matches. The Clan TDA-sanctioned matches became preferred to the public matches and developed a minor reputation for its level of play. Quite an achievement, huh? That achievement poses an obvious problem: What happens when you give a whiff of power to a demographic closely associated with the losing side of “The star quarterback just shoved some kid into a locker”? Oh, they’re getting some fucking revenge. On the football team? Hell no. Not unless they just banned their tormentor from a Clan TDA-sanctioned Defense of the Ancients match. “Oh, stop with the hyperbole! They don’t ban everyone and anyone!” Oh, you think that? You really think that? In the last six years, over forty-thousand accounts have been banned. Forty-thousand. That’s as many as four ten-thousands. And that’s hilarious.

But hey, nobody’s got anything to worry about. It won’t be a public relations nightmare for the people who play Defense of the Ancients, right? Nobody will find out why these deplorable human beings are banning people. It’s not like this “shitlist” works in conjunction with a text file that lists the reasons players have been banned on a line-by-line basis. And it’s not like this file is hosted and publicly available on the internet…

Well, see, I don’t care for authority. Especially not when that authority is built by a custom map for people who weren’t good enough to play Warcraft III and then that custom map fosters a community with a disgusting sense of elitism. So, it looks like I have to embarrass the internet bourgeoisie. I’m plenty fine with that. Of course, you need a way to follow along. You need to understand what’s going on here. I hope this will help you figure things out.

Got it? Good. Let’s start tearing people a new asshole.

No military campaign on the internet is complete without excuses for a defeat, demise, ban, or mental condition. Clan TDA and its supporters treat their games like military service: Once you join, you’re in it until dismissal or death No excuses will be tolerated. Somebody breaking into your house and putting you and your family at risk? That’s a ban, asshole. That’s not your teammates’ problem. Maybe you should have campaigned for stricter gun laws before the game started.

Could you imagine if Tom Brady was quarterbacking his way down the field during a game-winning Super Bowl drive? And then he threw an interception? And then his coaches found out Tom was watching The Godfather on his phone? He would be ruining it for everyone!!!

This is the problem with shows such as “16 and Pregnant” and “Muppet Babies”. They teach people that it is okay for anyone to have children, even when the laws of nature are in agreement that they should not be.

Great athletes get hurt in every sport. Defense of the Ancients is no exception. The difference? Inferior sports let players substitute themselves out of the game. When rugby and mixed martial arts and World War II all had a baby, they called it Defense of the Ancients. You know what you got into when you signed up, kid.

When your sport becomes popular enough, it attracts the best. The best become moderators. The moderators ban people. Seels is the best at what he does. He is a world-class athlete. He is what happened when Defense of the Ancients needed a legitimate badass. He snaps joints and pummels inferior competition with the stiffest blows in the badass world of underground DotA. He will punch you in the face and you will applaud his technique. Then he will ban you from Defense of the Ancients and you will be mad.

I completely agree with the actions that Seels has taken. By thinking quickly and responding faster, Seels has left little doubt as to whether or not he “[has] a life or not”.

Eh, I wouldn’t call it “closing”. It’s more like “shutting off the power, locking the doors, and threatening to call the authorities if everybody isn’t out the door by closing time”. There’s a huge difference! Why doesn’t anybody believe me!?

The name “citus” means aroused. Apparently, Citus has a ban fetish. He may be salaried by a corporation as part of sounding angry all the time. His paper trail currently accounts for seventy-three percent of the internet’s recorded uses of the word “fuck”. That market share will continue to rise as Maddox allows his own web site to collect dust.

Man, who would ever use the anonymity of the internet to pretend they’resomething that they aren’t? That is like, lame, bruh.

As that famous television show taught us, cats and dogs say the darnedest things! The Defense of the Ancients community is like a family to me, but so is Mr. Flufflekins. And I can’t help it if he’s so darn cute! Why can’t you, DotA players? WHY CAN’T YOU?

There are people out there who think feeding the homeless is a shameful endeavor but then drop down thousands of dollars to get surgeries for their pets. What does that have to do with Defense of the Ancients? Nothing, really. Just droppin’ knowledge, y’all.

It only seems fitting one of the few things that can stop Defense of the Ancients is another force of nature. Mother nature has a liberal bias. It hates our freedoms and only wishes to destroy them. Therefore, the earthquake triggers the volcano that starts a landslide that slams into the ocean and causes a tsunami that floods inland areas and introduces them to the plague. Not even Defense of the Ancients is safe from these horrors.

It’s hard to understand why people would tire of a third-party custom game system where players can get banned for combing their hair to the wrong side of their head. The proletariat understands this. They understand that a specter is haunting DotA; the specter of “I don’t give a fuck, fuck you!”

“[S]how [sic] logg in appeal”. For those of you who are wondering, Clan TDA has a web site where you appeal your ban. A moderator then reads the appeal and chooses not to unban you. I’m sure “chucknorrisv2.0” will get around to issuing his appeal in the near-future.

Let’s conclude this article by reminding people that Defense of the Ancients is the future of sports. It requires incredible commitment and discipline. It also brings out our primal side. It is not surprising to see that words will be exchanged. Some of these words are less than pleasant. Dare I say, rage?

The bad news? This is the end of the line for this wonderful tribute to the DotA Banlist. The good news? People still play Defense of the Ancients. This means more people will be banned. There will be more reasons to laugh at this community. And when there are no more bans? That means Defense of the Ancients has died. And that will be the ultimate victory.
